Gulfstream Park's third race consists of eleven horses traveling 8.5 furlongs on the main track, Claiming 10,000, N3L.
#5 CIRCULATORY (5-1)-He just won last out in a very similar scenario. Shockingly, very few in here are tested at today's distance, and he is. He is a "win or not hit the board" type, but O don't think that will last. Both of his wins come at this distance. He won't mind some mud. Win candidate.
#6 SHERIFF IRA (10-1)- I know, I know. Not a very logical pick. But.... His jockey, Leyva is one of my favorite lower level jockeys. He's not great, not even good. But, I have hit several longshots this year with him, and I have seen him bring in 45-1 longshots a couple times this year. I wouldn't disclude this one completely. Exotics play.
#7 REFEJO (5-2)- The class of the field. His style is playing with the track, he has a win against 20k competition. He raced well enough this long; win candidate.
#9 SLAMMIN SLEW (6-1)- I like that he is off a layoff here. I think he will like the distance; win candidate.
#11 CARY STREET (3-1)- Hate the post, other than that top candidate.
PLAYS: $8 W-P-S on #5 Circulatory and $2 Win-Show on #6 Sheriff Ira
$2 Exacta: 5/6-7-9-11 and 7-9-11/5-6
