GULFSTREAM PARK Race #9

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #4 (VIOLENT TIMES) (2-1) - This very consistent mare missed by just under a length here at this level and distance April 11 in her first on he dirt following five straight grass sprints. Her speed/staling style is a plus, and she enters off a near bullet half-mile breeze May 6. I like her chances.
2nd pick: #2 (Day by Day) (5-2) - This veteran mare has been sharp in five straight starts and moves up just a bit following three straight 2nd place finishes facing just a bit weaker. The Florida-bred has an outstanding local record (14-3-8-2) and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #3 (Heirssall) (9-2) - Stretch runner had a rough trip when finishing just over five lengths in back of 'Violent Times' here at this level April 11. Stakes placed twice last Fall going seven furlongs, this no speed type is a late threat if a fast and/or contested pace picture unfolds.
