Horse Racing Trader’s Tips: Gulfstream Park – Friday 8th May

Our expert previews the best racing action across the pond

The feature meeting in America on Friday comes from Gulfstream Park, with a jam-packed 11-race card to look forward to.

The action gets underway at 18:00 and we’ll be offering an extra place if 10 or more runners finish in the 18:00, 19:41, 21:48, 22:49 and 23:19.

With plenty of horses and jockeys to look out for, our trader Ian Rozzier has picked out who to keep an eye on.

Hidden Facts will be looking to get back to winning ways in the main event at 22:49 – a five-furlong claimer worth $50,000.

The four-year-old was pipped after a speed duel with re-opposing Charmaine’s Mia last time she ran in this grade. But Brian Lynch’s filly should dictate the race from the beginning, with only one other potential frontrunner in the field.

In the 18:35, a 4 1/2 furlong Maiden Special Weight, Todd Pletcher will send out his first two-year-old starter of the season. Restored Order is unlikely to get a run despite being declared, but $175,000 buy Prisoner will be raring to go.

A 48.40 second four-furlong sprint last night certainly caught the eye and he should continue to improve, despite coming up against a paid of Wesley Ward speedsters on debut.
