GULFSTREAM PARK Race #6

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (SIMPLE STORY) (5-2) - Home-bred has been sharp in both starts and is facing winners for the first time. Daughter of 'Take Charge Indy' broke her maiden here going 6.5 furlongs for a $50K tag March 25 in her first since finishing 2nd when debuting Nov. 23 at Churchill Downs. Nicely spotted, I give her a slight edge in this one.
2nd pick: #3 (East Coast Swing) (4-1) - 4yo ships from Tampa Bay Downs where she's tired in a pair of two-turn turf contests facing first-level allowance foes. She's racing third back from a long layoff, is in a claimer for the first time, has blinkers on, and this is her first attempt on conventional dirt. $235K daughter of 'Exchange Rate' is a serious-looking player.
3rd pick: #6 (Lady Fiorella) (2-1) - Home-bred was very sharp last Summer/Fall in four straight starts, but has only raced evenly in three at this meet while facing tougher after coming off a three-month layoff Feb. 20. Down in class, she must be left in the mix.
