Horse Racing picks for Gulfstream Park race track on Thursday, March 17: Creative Cloud set to shine
There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Thursday, including at Gulfstream Park race track. We had winners at 9/2, 3/1 and 3/1 yesterday, making it an amazing 11 winners from our last 15 runners, and we are now up 290.65 units with our picks dating back to last August.
Here are 3 runners we expect to perform well today. It’s time to dive in and discuss these potentially profitable plays.
1:33 pm Gulfstream Park (Race 2) – Luann 2/1
The winner of 3 of her first 4 starts last year, Gilberto Zerpa’s Luann has proved a disappointment in 2 starts since returning to this venue, including when a well beaten 4th in a 5-runner 7 furlongs $12,500 claiming event in December.
She has delivered some promising breezes at Palm Meadows Training Center in the last month or so, however, and dropping in both trip and grade she can provide jockey Jose Ortiz with a victory.
2:35 pm Gulfstream Park (Race 4) – Del Rey Dolly 9/5
Del Rey Dolly has been in great form at this track in recent months, winning her last 3 starts, including a 6-furlong $20,000 claiming contest last month. She tracked the pace prior to drawing 2-and-a-half-lengths clear of her rivals in the stretch that day.
She gets an easier contest on this occasion and the daughter of California Chrome looks capable of completing a 4-timer with Edwin Gonzalez up, having shaped as if this step up in trip would suit that day.
4:06 pm Gulfstream Park (Race 7) – Creative Cloud 7/5
Creative Cloud has raced exclusively at this track since debuting in February last year, winning a maiden claimer just under 11 months ago. He has delivered some admirable efforts without winning and ran better than the bare result suggests having had to race wide in a 6-furlong $35,000 claimer at the track in January.
He gets a marked drop in grade today and, having advertised his wellbeing with a 50.64 4-furlong breeze earlier this month, he is taken to double his career tally.
