GULFSTREAM PARK Race #8

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (BLAZING DESIRE) (3-1) - He's one of two entered by Mike Maker, and the pair race uncoupled. This gelding by 'Munnings' has won two of three at this meet, has a flexible style, and leading rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. stays loyal.
2nd pick: #3 (Dynadrive) (5-2) - Very sharp in three of his four starts, and all have come on the grass going a mile or just under that distance. Speed/stalker won at Tampa Bay Downs facing similar types, and the capable Jon Thomas has Javier Castellano aboard. The pair teamed to win the $1,000,000 Travers Stakes (G1) at Saratoga back in 2018.
3rd pick: #2 (Dominate Themoment) (6-1) - This colt drops in class after tiring in a $100K stakes here Feb. 1. He had won his previous pair on the grass, has good early speed, and draws a fine post to use it from.
4th pick: #1 (Lure Him In) (8-1) - He won his first pair before tiring here in his latest. All three of those have come on the dirt, and this homebred is racing on the grass for the first time. He may factor at a big price if the new surface agrees with him.
