Even if we don't have a positive outcome, today's Gulfstream feature could pay dividends down the road. We're talking 3 year olds, of course, and there are some well bred horses with high profile connections in this afternoon's 9th race.

There are four horses that peaked our interest but the one almost guaranteed to deliver value is Hy Kodiak Warrior (5-1). Low profile connections should guarantee that but his recency, very competitive figures, a bottom-wide pedigree that goes 9 furlongs, Saez on the re-ride and, significantly, he experience and success at Gulfstream Park.

Taking Hy Kodiak Warrior to win at 4-1 or greater, an exacta box with well regarded Ichiban Warrior (5-2), and adding 9 furlong winning Chad Brown returnee Cousin Stephen (3-1) and distance bred McGaughey stretchout Top Billing (5-1), getting first Lasix and Rosario, to the super-exotics mix.
