Pick for Friday March 1, 2024:


1 1/8 Miles | Open | 3 Year Olds | ALLOWANCE OPTIONAL CLAIMING : $75,000 | PURSE: $91,000


Track: Gulfstream Park
Race: 7
Surface: Dirt

Horse: Speak Easy (ML 3-5).


Field (in post position order):

1. Merit (ML 5-1)
2. Nomos (ML 12-1)
3. Speak Easy (ML 3-5)
4. Secret Lover (ML 30-1)
5. Raguel (ML 12-1)
6. Conquest Warrior (ML 5-2)
7. Tapit Three Times (ML 20-1)


Speak Easy is also entered in the Fountain of Youth Stakes on Saturday March 2, 2024, but I expect him to be scratched from that race and run in this race instead.

Common sense logic tells me that his trainer Todd Fletcher doesn't want to run his Derby prospects against each other in prep races (like the Fountain of Youth Stakes) because he already has Locked in that race.


So Speak Easy will use this race as a prep for either the Wood Memorial or the Blue Grass -- both to be run on April 6, 2024.


So bet Speak Easy (ML 3-5) to win.

Yes, that is right: WIN and you should be going home as a winner.

Put some considerable amount of money on Speak Easy to win to make it worthwhile and justified going to the racetrack.

Speak Easy's final odd will most likely be 1/5 heavy heavy favorite.

Don't be shocked if he goes off at odd of 1/9.

He is towering over the field.

This is the easiest 1/5 money you'll ever going to get on the card at Gulfstream Park or at any other racetracks on this Friday March 1, 2024.

Speak Easy's final odd will most likely be right around 1/5 favorite.

Hey, a win is a win instead of chasing some longshots in hope of a big payoff as most horseplayers often do to no avail.

Take this easy money 3/5 (or at whatever the price is -- 1/5 is my guess) and leave the racetrack as a winner.


BONUS: Play exacta (straight): Speak Easy (ML 3-5) over Conquest Warrior (ML 5-2).


My level of confidence on this exacta (in a scale of 1 to 10), it's a 10.

Yes, that is right: 10 and it couldn't possibly be any locked than this in my opinion.

It's an EASY exacta in my opinion.

There you have it!
