GULFSTREAM PARK Race #5

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (SMOAK N'GLOAT) (4-1) - One of many veteran geldings entered in this one-mile contest at the local bottom ($6250), he ships from Hawthorne in good form. Illinois bred has a speed/stalking style, drops to a new low, and the capable barn of Scott Becker has Luis Saez aboard.
2nd pick: #4 (Diamond Majesty) (5-2) - Old timer is racing third back following a half-year's absence and is switching from grass to dirt, dropping in class, and stretching out in distance. Stalker ia capable on the dirt, draws a nice outside post, and can factor with his best.
3rd pick: #7 (Aktabantay) (9-2) - A winner of two of his last three, 8yo stretches back out after scoring by just under a length going 6.5 furlongs at this $6250 tag Nov 24. His outside is a plus and he's from the barn of Jane Cibelli 25-5-3-3 at the meet.
4th pick: #1 (Dr Harlan) (3-1) - He's making his eighth straight start at this tag and has been competitive in all but one of those attempts. Another 8yo, he has the rail, a flexible style, and has done well on the local dirt 19-3-6-2. In the mix.
