The Sunday menu at Gulfstream Park kicks off with an $8,684 Super High 5 carryover up for grabs in Race 1 (start time 12:25 p.m. ET).
Winning a share of the $1 bet seems relatively straightforward by Super High 5 standards. Race 1 is a prime claimant of $25,000 for fillies and mares sprinting 5 1/2 furlongs on Tapeta, and while these conditions may seem tricky, the lines of form are not too complicated to analyze. Best of all, the race drew just eight entrants, which equates to a very manageable 6,720 possible outcomes.
We’ll start building our ticket by entering #1 bullet on tap (2-1) up. The three-year-old filly has not missed the trifecta in her last three starts by sprinting on the Gulfstream Tapeta. After finishing second in an initial $25,000 seeker, Bullet On Tap twice finished third at the $35,000 level.
Bullet On Tap was pulled from its last run by high percentage coach Rohan Crichton, a 24% winner this encounter and a 27% winner with new claim acquisitions. Add to that the fact that the Railroad Post produces a solid 14% winners in Tapeta 5 1/2 furlong sprints at Gulfstream, and Bullet On Tap looms as a deserving favorite.
Below, it is necessary to respect the chances of #7 Cupid Austin (5-2). She was not dishonored when she finished fifth by 2 1/2 lengths in an optional $40,000 first-seeker at this track and distance last time out, which followed some on-set efforts in first-seeders. of $25,000. His consistent finishes and competitive Brisnet speed ratings suggest a top-three spot is within reach.
#2 Mom Candy (15-1) didn’t factor in when she finished seventh in her debut at this track, distance and class level on June 3, but hot trainer Jose D’Angelo is winning at a rate up 23% with second-time starters, suggesting Candy Mom can go ahead on Sunday.
#3 Marthamaywhovier (12-1), fourth in a special debut heavyweight at Gulfstream Park dirt last fall, is eligible to consider while dropping his class for his 2022 debut. #4 Breehazel (5-1) is also down in class and retains apprentice jockey Ailsa Morrison, who rides with a weight allowance of seven pounds.
The unprecedented #5 Yeloma (4-1) put up a decent work tab for coach Ronald Spatz, who is winning at a 14% rate with first starters. And we can’t ignore #8 Avenue Fenix (12-1), who finished fourth at this track and class level a month ago.
Here is how we will bet the Super High 5:
- $1 Super High 5: 1 with 7 with 2,3,4,5,8 with 2,3,4,5,8 with 2,3,4,5,8 ($60)
