Gulfstream Park is back on Wednesday and we’re looking for some winning multi-bet tickets. The Pick 5 and Pick 4 at Gulfstream to be exact. I’m still hitting really high in horse racing thanks to the Pick 5 we hit at Churchill Downs in May. In all, my ROI is over 100% in horse racing from March to today, in large part because of that win. We’ve also cashed some other smaller multi-bet tickets to carry the load as well.
It doesn’t take much of a bet on a multi-bet to cash in big. It’s of course not the easiest bet to hit in the world, but you don’t need many of them to land to have a big year on the race course. Think of it as a lottery ticket with a much better chance of having success on than the government mandated lottery. Head below for our free Gulfstream Park Pick 5 and Pick 4 selections for August 10, 2020.
Pick 4: Race 6-10
Pick 5: Race 5-10
Post Time: 2:02 p.m. EST
Distance: 7 Furlongs
Race 5 is the first leg of our Pick 5 ticket at Gulfstream Park. This is a 7-furlong $20,200 event on the dirt. Chase Runner and Love Nest are on my shortlist in this one. Chase Runner is capable of a lot more than we’ve seen recently despite struggling. He is 4 for 18 in his career, with his most recent win on April 18 in a $20,000 event. Chase Runner was on a nice run, with finishes of 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 1st before hitting a wall.
He has finished 8th and 5th in his previous two races. Those were in a $26,000 and $25,000 race, so it’s back down in class for Chase Runner. That should help get him close in this one. It’s an easier field which should benefit him nicely. He’s coming off workouts in August and September with times of 1:00.84 at 5 furlongs, 49.03 seconds at 4 furlongs, and most recently 1:01.45 at 5 furlongs.
Love Nest is 7 for 26 in his career with a couple of wins since April. He has gone 1st, 5th, 1st, 3rd in his previous four outings. The wins were in $17,000 and $20,000 events in easy fashion. Love Best won by 15 ½ and 9 ¾ lengths in those two performances. Love Nest participated in a $25,000 event, a bit tougher in his most recent outing on July 25, and showed 3rd. I don’t foresee this being a 15 or 9 length win, but Love Nest should be able to edge out the competition in this class.
Post Time: 2:34 p.m. EST
Race 6 starts our Pick 4 at Gulfstream on Thursday. This is a 5-furlong event for $22,000 on the grass. This could be a duel between Souper Shenanigen and Bridologist, who should be running up front in this one. Bridologist is coming off a sharp performance on August 15 for the first win of his career. He beat Soul Reflection by 1 ¼ lengths to secure the first win of his career.
Bridologist has finished 3rd, 2nd, 4th, 1st in his career. In his worst performance, Bridologist finished 4th on July 12 in a $19,000 event. Which version of Bridologist are we going to see today? If it’s the one we saw on August 15, then Bridologist is going to take a good run at the top prize in Race 6. However, if she runs like she did in July, then she likely will finish somewhere around the middle.
Souper Shenanigan has finished 3rd, 2nd, 7th, 4th in his previous four. In his last entry, Souper finished 4th in a $22,000 event. Prior to that, he wasn’t anywhere to be found and finished 7th in a $22,000 race. This horse was purchased for $500,000 back in 2017, so there are big expectations here, but he hasn’t been able to follow through. I will take a shot on Bridologist showing up to run today at 4/1 on the morning-line.

Race 7 is in the same class as the previous two races, as we’ll have a mile event for a $20,000 purse in this one. Witch Hunter and Janet B Doesit All should get it done and be in the mix in the stretch. Janet B Doesit All has shown nice form recently with top-3 finishes in back-to-back outings on April 30 and June 3.
Prior to that, she was struggling in higher classes, with finishes of 4th, 3rd, 7th, 7th. Her previous two outings were at the $20,000 and $24,000 level, so this is something similar. She’s coming off a slight layoff, having her last race in early June. On the workout trail, Janet B Doesit All has been solid with a time of 49.84 seconds at 4 furlongs and 1:01.78 at 5 furlongs. Expect her to be in the frame in the stretch.
Witch Hunter has been on a nice run recently with performances of 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd in her previous seven entries. After finishing 6th in back-to-back races in her first two races, Witch Hunter has figured it out nicely. She placed 2nd in her most recent race to lose by a head against Dana Grace in a $22,000 event. Witch Hunter was really close to making it three wins in four races. She should be able to respond with a win in Race 7 on Thursday.
Post Time: 3:40 p.m. EST
Race 8 is the feature race of the day at Gulfstream Park on Thursday. A purse for $47,000 will be on offer for a mile of racing on the dirt. Heiressindy and Gibberish should have a nice run in this one. Heiressindy has been in good form with a win in July, and then 3rd a month later in August. That was a $47,000 win for Heiressindy, and then 3rd for a $54,500 purse on August 2. She is coming off an impressive workout on August 29 with a time of 59.70 seconds at 5 furlongs.
Gibberish will likely be the most difficult target for Heiressindy. Gibberish is coming off a performance in the $200,000 Indiana Oaks (Gr. 3). It was a disappointing finish for 6th, but there isn’t another horse in this event that has participated in a graded race. Prior to the Indiana Oaks, Gibberish was 1st on May 25, as she destroyed the field for a 7 length victory in a $45,000 event. Gibberish is coming off two solid workouts, with a time of 46.50 and 48.62 seconds at 5 4 furlongs. The experience she gained in the Indiana Oaks should serve her well on Thursday.
Post Time: 4:14 p.m. EST
This is the final leg of our Pick 5 and Pick 4 at Gulfstream on Thursday. This will go for 5 furlongs on the turf. Slick Star and Young Raymond are going to be strong competitors in Race 9. Young Raymond is 2 for 9 in his career, finishing 1st, 10th, 2nd in his previous three performances. In his win on July 5, Young Raymond won by a length in a $25,000 event. He followed up for 10th in a $22,000 race on July 31, but then was able to bounce back to place 2nd.
Young Raymond was 2nd on August 15 to finish 1 ¼ lengths behind Legal Deal. He came on a bit strong at the end, but it wasn’t enough to catch Legal Deal. Slick Star should give Young Raymond a tough battle in this one. He’s 2 for 15 and has shown great consistently recently. Note that Slick Star has finished in the top-3 in four straight performances.
In his most recent showing, Slick Star placed 2nd in a $22,000 event. He lost by a head after getting caught at the wire. Slick Star had the lead from the 3/16 pole to the top of the stretch. He boasts an impressive 5-furlings workout of 59.43 seconds in his last morning assignment. I think there should be some value to be had on Slick Star in Race 9.
