Racing expert Sweet Lou Monaco's picks for the ninth at Gulfstream Park
ANALYSIS

We stay at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida for a $75,000 allowance optional claiming race (purse: $51,000) for 3-year-old fillies over one mile on the dirt.  The field of 6 will go to gate for race 9 on the 10-race card with an approximate post time of 4:30 p.m. ET.

#4, Dream Marie, Richard Mitchell, 5-2

All four of her career starts have been at Gulfstream Park with her last two victories in maiden claiming race at Gulfstream Park West (11/20/19) and her last in a starter optional claiming race here (12/14/19) by 1 ¼ lengths as the seventh choice (13-1) in an 8-horse field. Richard Mitchell has the mount for trainer Matthew Williams. She is hitting all strides right now. The pick.

#5, Global Ambition, Jose Ortiz, 2-1

The morning-line favorite makes her first visit to Florida after a victory in her debut in a maiden special weight race at Parx Racing on 10/19/19 and a runner-up finish in her last, an allowance optional claiming race at Laurel Park on 11/15/19. Jose Ortiz is in the saddle for trainer Michael Matz. Let’s see how she travels. Runner-up.

#6, Good to Me, Cristian Torres, 3-1

Good to Me crosses the border after two straight victories in her debut, a maiden claiming race (11/16/19) and a claiming race (12/11/19) at Woodbine in Toronto, Canada. Cristian Torres is in the reins for trainer Julia Carey. She definitely enters with two solid performances for her debut in Florida. Contender.

#2, Addilyn, Edgar Zayas, 8-1

She has the most experience in the field as this will be her eighth career start (1-2-0) with all in-the-money finishes here at Gulfstream Park. She has races in four straight stakes races, including a disappointing eighth-place finish in the Glitter Woman Stakes on Jan. 4 here. Edgar Zayas has the mount for trainer Antonio Sano. Let’s see if she can improve and regain her past form here. In the mix.
