Let’s Go Shopping


Today's Gulfstream Park feature is the Bal Harbour for four year old fillies going a flat mile. Obviously, the two favorites, U.S.S. O'Brien (8-5) and House Rules (7-5) will have much to say, especially the former, seeking her third straight and coming off a lifetime best Energy Rating under these exact conditions Dec. 10.

But we're taking the value offered on Georgia (5-1) who hasn't run in the Indiana Oaks but is 1-for-1 on this strip and 2-for-2 at the distance. Her spacing, outside draw in a small field, and the presence of Johnny V. all spell good trip here. With clever rating, she can finish up well enough to upset this group.

Taking Georgia to win at 9-2 or greater, key boxing exactas with the favorites and adding mile winner Tempers Flair (4-1) to the super-exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2007: 1665

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 500-324

Amount Wagered: $3,330 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,461.20

Profit to Date: $131.20 {Thursday results not included}

This Cat Will Play


In today's turf sprint feature at Gulfstream Gato Del Cielo (6-1) who's done nothing wrong on our Energy Rating scale in two starts, including strong, too-late wide finish in turf and racing debut.

Given time awaiting this, trainer Nicks, dealing a hot hand, is a profitable 31% with runners coming off the maiden win.

Taking Gato Del Cielo to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the speedy Lady Shipman (7-2) and classy dropdown Cool Comfort (3-1).

No Substitute for Experience


Today's feature race at Gulfstream features two horses that have done nothing wrong of which one most likely will emerge the winner. But the race is a little trappy, fraught with wakeup potential.

The problem would be choosing the right one of four remaining entrants.

Instead, we will hope that the crowd will go a little overboard on the visually impressive maiden breaker Street Babe (5-2) and allow for a bettable price on the Todd/Johnny production, Biedermeier (2-1).

The attraction is the outer post in a small field, three races worth of experience, as opposed to one, and the fact that he's never taken a backward step on our Energy Rating scale. A fair price would be 8-5 or greater.

And so we're taking Biederman to win, an exacta box with Street Babe, and adding surface loving Fast Falcon (5-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1664

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 500-324

Amount Wagered: $3,328 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,461.20

Profit to Date: $133.20
