GULFSTREAM PARK Race #12

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (ELITE APPEAL) (8-1) - Longshot looked dangerous turning for home last out, but hung a bit in the final 1/16th to miss by four lengths. This 4yo has been given almost seven weeks of rest, has worked three times for this attempt, has a ground saving post, and I give her a slight edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Barbadolla) (7-2) - Strong finisher had some traffic trouble when rallying to finish 3rd here in her first ever for today's $16K price tag. Trainer Mike Maker is having an outstanding meet (149-34-24-23, 23%), and this daughter of 'Street Sense' is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (For Kicks) (10-1) - Mare missed by almost four lengths here last out and lost more ground and beaten when carried very wide turning for home. The longshot is a serious player at a big price with a better trip.
4th pick: #4 (Katieleigh) (6-1) - Lightly raced 4yo by 'Midnight Lute' tired late to miss by just over two lengths at this level Feb. 8. It was her second back following almost a 10-month layoff, and she must be left in the mix.
