GULFSTREAM PARK Race #3

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (HILLTOP HARMONY) (3-1) - Lightly raced 4yo has gone 4-2-2-0 since coming off a 12-week layoff in early Sept. She finished second here at this distance for a $12,500 tag at the 3l condition Dec 13, then ran second at this $8,000 price going 8.5 furlongs Jan. 17. Claimed that day by Dave Carlos, he's having a strong meet 29-7-3-6 (24%) and is 4 for 12 (33%) off the claim since Jan. 1 of 2019.
2nd pick: #3 (Lapis Storm) (7-2) - Clearly the main speed, she's stretching out to a mile in her local debut. 4yo was a gate-to-wire winner by almost 3 lengths traveling 6 furlongs at Hawthorne to clear the 2l condition. In her follow up there Jan. 3, she tired to finish fourth after setting a quick and pressured pace. Homebred has worked twice since arriving and the high percentage barn of Larry Rivelli has leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr aboard.
3rd pick: #8 (Descente) (2-1) - She won here by 6 lengths at this distance Jan. 15 for today's $8,000 tag and was claimed out of that contest by Jorge Navarro. Filly has a nice outside post for her stalking style and must be left in the mix.
