We have a multi-bet wager on the menu on Thursday at Gulfstream Park. While I’m not going to get into the Rainbow Pick 6, the late Pick 5 and Pick 4 looks like an attractive option. I will handicap the Rainbow Pick 6 in the future, though. I’m just not too high on the first leg which is Race 5 on Thursday. Gulfstream Park has a total of ten races on the docket for Thursday. There is $320,000 in prize money available between the ten events.
We are also covering Aqueduct Racetrack in New York today. There are three single bets for three horses at Aqueduct if you are interested in finding more horse racing picks. Head below for our free Gulfstream Park Pick 5 and Pick 4 selections for November 10, 2020.

The first leg of our Pick 5 begins with Race 6. Race 6 covers 6 furlongs on the main track for a $40,000 purse. Miss Peppina should run a strong race here. She has plenty of stakes experience, including a Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 3 event. In the biggest race of her career so far, Miss Peppina finished 4th in the $350,000 Spinaway Stakes (Gr. 1) on September 1 at Saratoga. She has finished 10th, 5th, 3rd since that outing.
In her most recent stakes outing, Miss Peppina finished 5th in the $100,000 Victory Ride Stakes on July 4. Miss Peppina was tired in the 6 ½ furlong outing near the end of the race. In her latest showing, Miss Peppina showed 3rd in a $50,000 allowance race. She had the lead going into the stretch, but weakened in the mile and 70-yard event. A 6-furlong race in the $40,000 should much more suit her talents on Thursday afternoon.

Distance:1 1/16 Miles
Race 7 is for a $31,000 purse on the turf covering 1 1/16 miles. War Canoe and Omnia should have a good time in this event. It should come down to those two, with War Canoe likely running the best. War Canoe will have to fight from the outside, but it shouldn’t be too much of a problem for this mare who has experience in stakes racing.
In fact, her last four races were stakes races, and six of the last seven. War Canoe has finished in the top-3 in seven of her previous eight performances. Overall, she has a strike rate of 8 for 39. War Canoe placed 2nd behind Myhartblongstodady in the $150,000 Ticonderoga Stakes (Black Type) on October 24 at Belmont Park.
Race 7 at Gulfstream Park represents a big drop in class. She goes competing for $100,000+ purses on the regular to a modest $31,000 event on Thursday afternoon at Gulfstream Park. Expect her to reel this field in and get out of Thursday with a win.

Race 7 is the co-feature event of the afternoon with a $47,000 purse. Kiger and Moonlite Strike are worth watching in this race. Kiger and Moonlite have had similar starts to their careers. Kiger finished 4th as a first-time runner on September 19 in a $60,000 event after making a late gain. It was an okay performance. He returned on October 29 to beat Carpenters Call by 2 ¼ lengths in a $46,000 event. That was a nice response for Kiger. Moonlite Strike was 4th as a first-time runner as well.
He was 4th for a $46,000 purse at 6 furlongs on October 16 at Gulfstream Park West. Moonlite Strike returned on November 14 to beat Gran Runner for a $46,000 purse by 2 lengths. And just like Kiger, Moonlite Strike was able to have a nice response after faltering in his first outing. I’m going to side with Kiger in a race he’ll likely demand a better price at post time. I like what I saw late in his first race in the stretch to move up in a $60,000 assignment, and then won easily in his next try. I will back Kiger.

Wide open racing in Race 9, which features a $47,000 purse for a mile of racing on the turf. Osaka Girl and Beam of Light appear as likely contenders to get the win here. Beam of Light is 1 for 5 in her career and coming off her strongest outing yet. Leading up to that win, Beam of Light finished 6th, 5th, 3rd 7th in her career. In her winning performance, she beat Gaelic Tales by a half length for a $46,750 purse. That put her back on track and in a good position for Thursday, which is the co-feature event of the afternoon in Hallandale Beach.
Osaka Girl takes a class drop after finishing in the top-2 in five straight races. She is 1 for 8 overall, and was a winner on New Year’s Day in a $50,000 assignment. Osaka beat La Babia by 2 lengths to get to the winner’s circle. Following the win, Osaka placed 2nd in three straight events. In her most recent, Osaka Girl 2 ¾ lengths behind Confessing for a $90,000 purse. She had a 1 length lead at the top of the stretch, but failed to hold on. It was a really nice effort at that level. Osaka Girl should run well in this class with a good chance of winning.
Post Time: 5:06 p.m. EST
Race 10 concludes the day at Gulfstream Park on Thursday afternoon. The final race has a $24,000 purse for a mile of racing on the turf. Divine Martha is 1 for 9 in her career and has been especially good form recently. After finishing 8th, 7th, 8th, 5th, Divine Martha placed 2nd on October 8. That was a 1 ¾ length loss for Divine Martha for a $22,000 purse. In her next attempt, she beat You’re the best by 8 ¼ lengths to prove she’s capable of running much better. For a $140,000 horse, Divine Martha must find some consistency in this class.
Little Red Frog has finished in the top-3 in five of her previous six outings. Also note that Little Red Frog has been in the top-3 in 9 of 14 races in her career. That is some nice consistency for the one-time winner. Little Red Frog is 1 for 14 in her career, and should look good in this class. In her most recent race, Little Red Frog showed 3rd in a $38,000 assignment. She kept on and ran pretty well, but just ran into tough opponents. At the $24,000 level, expect Little Red Frog to move up on Thursday.
