Thursday’s 9th race from Gulfstream Park is an optional claiming event for Florida-bred fillies and mares dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time 5:17 p.m. ET).
#3 LET’S BE HONEST (9-2) stalked and smartly scored vs. restricted claimers at Gulfstream West Nov. 25, and she was claimed for $8k that day. She exits a wide 3rd vs. similar local sprinters and might sit the right trip behind lively fractions. She has struck twice at Gulfstream and once at this distance, and barn excels with third after a layoff runners.
#4 Loriloupies (5-2) had her local 2-race win streak snapped in a clear runner-up finish vs. similar local sprinters when last seen July 2020. She fired a bullet for this Jan. 17 and is a tactical threat if she is ready to go in her first start in more than six months.
#7 Comp’d (4-1) easily went all the way in her local maiden claiming sprint bow late last year, and set the pace and held 2nd Jan. 8. She drew outside the other speed and might try to press wide under Irad Ortiz Jr.
#3 to win
