GULFSTREAM PARK Race #5

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (LITTLE BELLA) (5-2) - This filly has been sharp in all three starts, each coming on the grass at today's five-furlong distance. The 4yo has finished 2nd in both starts at this meet, the latest for a $16K tag March 15. She has the rail, and it's noted that Joel Rosario is aboard for this attempt. I give this stalker a slight edge.
2nd pick: #9 (Moon Eyes) (7-2) - She rallied to finish 4th here March 15 and was just over a length behind 'Little Bella' at the wire. Competitive in four straight, she's from a top barn (Mike Maker), and he has Luis Saez back aboard following a one-race absence.
3rd pick: #10 (Grey Manners) (8-1) - Lightly raced mare rushed up after being bumped at the break to press a quick pace in the same March 15 contest with both 'Little Bella' and 'Moon Eyes.' She stayed on until the last stages where she weakened to miss by almost four lengths. 5yo has a good outside to 'gun' from and is a threat at a square price with a clean beginning.
4th pick: #5 (De Purga Sangre) (12-1) - Daughter of 'Twirling Candy' faces winners after breaking her maiden by a 'neck' at this distance for a $16K tag March 13. Conservatively spotted by trainer Mike Yates, she may factor at a big price.
