Today at 1pm ET Lo Duca and I will be going live on the blog and on twitter to stream racing this afternoon. We have some exciting guests joining us through the day, including one of the top young riders in the country, Lane Luzzi, and ABR Correspondent Dan Tordjman. Make sure you check us out on twitter and on the blog to follow along live. For now, here is my late Gulfstream Pick Five ticket.
Gulfstream Late Pick Five:
Race Five: The (8) My Point Exactly would be my top choice here because he's got a nose for the wire and has won above this level previously, but you should also use (2) and (6) based on their back class.
Race Six: I'm going to ride with the best connections in this race. Top choice is (3) Candy Machine with the combo of Chad Brown and Tyler Gaffalione. Also use the Pletcher horses (4) and (5).
Race Seven: I'm in a back class kind of mood today so Dale Romans' (9) Lemon Scat has me interested here, although this race is more open. To that end I also will be using (2), (7) and (8).
Race Eight: The (4) Off Topic trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Luis Saez is the hands down horse to beat here as he has run in some heady races before this. He's my single.
Race Nine: I like the Wesley Ward entry (7) Cherokee Sound on the turf as he always has his horses ready to go on the grass, but for coverage will also include (4), (5) and (8).
