Saturday's Best Bet: White Frost warms up in Sweetest Chant

Saturday’s 10th race from Gulfstream Park is the Grade 3 Sweetest Chant Stakes for 3-year-old fillies traveling one mile on the turf course (Post Time 4:18 p.m. ET).

#5 WHITE FROST (9-2) switched to turf, stalked slow fractions, and flew home in her Aqueduct maiden win Nov. 21, and the runner-up was a next-out winner. She should get pace to chase and could easily mow these down.

#8 Director’s Cut (6-1) was part of the exacta in four of five turf starts. She likes this course and distance and her late pace ratings are slowly rising. She exits a runner-up finish vs. local optional claimers and she ran well that day. She seemed a bit keyed up off a layoff last time and the slow fractions may have had something to do with that. She tracked, led, and ended up a solid 2nd. Luis Saez rides, she fired a bullet for this Jan. 24, and she figures to relax behind honest fractions this time.

#6 Domain Expertise (5-1) earned an improved number in her Tampa Bay maiden win as the favorite Dec. 5.

#1 Queen of the Green (15-1) fired from off the pace in all three straight maiden turf routes. She should save ground behind honest splits.
