January 18, 2020
GULFSTREAM PARK Race #9 (THE SUNSHINE MILLIONS SPRINT)
Saturday 01/18 03:35 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (LADY'S ISLAND) (3-1) - The field's only female, this hard-hitting mare won 8 of 9 starts during 2019 and won stakes on both dirt and turf. Extremely fast from the gate, she's defeated males in the past and can take this in gate-to-wire fashion.
2nd pick: #1 (Extravagant Kid) (2-1) - Veteran also had an outstanding 2019 going 8-4-3-0 and ended the year with a length win here in a $100K stakes Dec 28, a contest that was taken 'off the turf'. He's gone 10-5-3-1 at this distance, has the rail, a stalking style, and is a late threat.
3rd pick: #5 (Royal Squeeze) (9-2) - He won a stakes here going 7 furlongs on Claiming Crown Day (Dec 7) which was his 9 career wins on the local dirt in 18 starts. Another with a stalking style, he has enough early speed to stay within range of 'Lady's Island' and try to run her down turning for home.
