Gulfstream Park Selections for March 4, 2022 – Horse Racing Picks

We’re off and running on Friday at the BetOnline racebook. It’s a big card with 15 racecourses available.

Industry Leading 9% Cashback!

There are three small stakes races, two at Turf Paradise for $35,000 and then the $75,000 Owner Appreciation Distaff. It isn’t much, but that’s going to change on Saturday at Santa Anita Park.

Santa Anita Park has an impressive stakes card with the running of the $650,000 Santa Anta Handicap (Gr. 1), and a Road to the Kentucky Derby race with the running of the $400,000 San Felipe Stakes (Gr. 2).

We’re at Aqueduct Racetrack and Gulfstream Park on Friday afternoon. Gulfstream has nine events worth $409,000 in prize money. Head below for our best Gulfstream Park picks on March 4, 2022.

Race 2

(1) Cagua
+250 (5/2)
(2) Amazin Queen
+350 (7/2)
(3) Golden Bow
+800 (8/1)
(4) Mount Sinai
+200 (2/1)
(5) No Nannette No
+400 (4/1)
(6) Dolce Aprile
+300 (3/1)

Post Time: 1:33 p.m. EST
Distance: 1 1/16 Miles

Race 2 is a $34,000 event covering 1 1/16 miles on the synthetic track. No Nannette No and Mount Sinai should be tough horses in this one.

No Nannette No is 1 for 5 and has to be considered a threat in this one. She is 6th, 4th, 10th, 1st, 6th in her career.

Two races back, she struck with a $23,000 win by a half-length. That was a good one, but she soon fell off and finished 6th on February 11 in a $37,000 race.

That was discouraging. Back to $34,000, look for No Nannette No to do better today. Mount Sinai should compete strongly, though.

Mount Sinai is 6th, 1st, 5th, 2nd in four races. She won a $23,000 race, clearing easily by 6 ¼ lengths. In her last attempt, Mount Sinai placed 2nd behind Chacalosa by 1 ½ lengths in a $41,000 purse.

This looks like her race. The competition doesn’t carry the most weight in Race 2.

The Bet

Race 7

(1) Greg’s Honor
+600 (6/1)
(2) Curbstone
+400 (4/1)
(3) Tyson
+350 (7/2)
(4) Allegorical
+600 (6/1)
(5) Ridewiththedevil
+450 (9/2)
(6) Roadtriptonowhere
+450 (9/2)
(7) Anthracite
+2000 (20/1)
(8) My Romeo Lima
+300 (3/1)

Post Time: 4:08 p.m. EST
Distance: 1 1/16 Miles

Race 7 covers 1 1/16 miles for a $60,000 purse. Tyson and My Romeo Lima are going to be difficult to beat in this one.

Tyson is winless, but that’s because he hasn’t run in a race yet. This is his debut for Todd Pletcher on Friday.

Tyson is a $250,000 colt that is expected to impress. Despite not having any experience, he’s looked good in workouts.

He was timed most recently with a time of 49.80 seconds and 49.85 seconds at 4 furlongs. Tyson will be challenged, but a chance should open up.

My Romeo Lima should be a top contender. He showed 3rd on February 5 in a $60,000 event on debut. The $650,000 My Romeo Lima is another Pletcher trainee.

Open to improvement and getting good value, expect My Romeo Lima to be a solid selection in Race 7.

The Bet

Race 8

(1) Fortin Hill
+200 (2/1)
(2) Lugamo
+500 (5/1)
(3) Rough Entry
+300 (3/1)
(4) Catch that Party
+1500 (15/1)
(5) Where Paradise Lay
+1500 (15/1)
(6) Quick Tempo
+180 (9/5)

Post Time: 4:40 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs

Race 8 covers 6 furlongs for a $62,000 purse. Expect good work from Fortin Hill and Quick Tempo in this one.

They should be serious contenders to get this job done. Quick Tempo is 3 for 11 and should go on well today.

In his previous three attempts, he finished 7th, 3rd, 5th in the last three outings. Two races back, he showed 3rd for a $90,000 purse.

Quick Tempo couldn’t keep up in his next and most recent attempt, finishing 5th for a $62,000 event. He needs more today.

Fortin Hill is probably the better value here. He is 1st, 1st, 2nd, 1st, 10th in five career races. He won at Belmont Park on July 4, 2020 for a $68,000 race.

That prompted a jump up to the $300,000 Forego Stakes (Gr. 1) on August 29, 2020. That didn’t work out, finishing 10th, but he should be much better off a break and down in class to where he’s found success before.

Look for Fortin Hill to have the best value to win in this one. I’m backing the No. 1 to clear in the stretch.
