GULFSTREAM PARK Race #5

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (PHILLY SPECIAL) (2-1) - Well-bred filly had all sorts of traffic issues when beaten by just under a length here at this distance for a $50K tag on March 21. It was her first in two months, first in a claimer, and first in blinkers. The Pletcher barn halves her in value, and this daughter of 'Blame' gets top billing.
2nd pick: #5 (Chouchchou de Boo) (9-2) - Speedy sort tired late to miss by just under two lengths here at this mile distance for a $50K tag March 21. It was her first following a claim by Terri Pompay for $25,000 Feb. 6, and she drops her back down to that level for this attempt.
3rd pick: #8 (Polished Copper) (7-2) - She rallied to finish 2nd, going 8.5 furlongs for a $30K tag on March 13. Stalker was racing first off a Dave Fawkes claim for today's $25K price, and he has her back in at that level for this attempt.
4th pick: #9 (Lake Parima) (4-1) - Wide in her first attempt on Jan. 9, she tired in her follow up March 21 to finish a length behind 'Chouchchou de Boo' that afternoon. Trainer Chris Clement halves her value, and she may factor if able to avoid a wide trip from her outside post.
