The Gulfstream Championship Meet continues this weekend. Starting at 12:10 p.m. ET on Saturday we have 11 races, including two stakes.

As always, check the program for scratches and changes, monitor the weather and keep an eye on the track conditions.

(I will reference Equibase's Speed Figure in selected races, which tells you how fast a horse has been running in each of its races after adjusting for track, distances, and conditions).

Gulfstream Betting

According to numberFire horse racing projections, these are the best bets to make at FanDuel Racing today.

Race 6 is a Maiden Special Weight for 3-year-olds sprinting 6 furlongs. The numberFire data projects the favorite Sgt. Pepper (5/2) to win with top jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. riding for leading trainer Todd Pletcher, who also trains top challenger Cuvier (3/1) with Luis Saez up.

Top Race Reports (TRR) sees value and solid efforts with win wagers and placing from Practiko (6/1) and Track Shot (15/1), who scratched earlier this week to run here. Practiko is well meant and should pop from the gate from the far outside No. 11 post and engage from gate to wire.

2. Avow and Sugar Fix, Race 9

FanDuel Racing Odds: 4/1 and 2/1

Race 9 is the $75,000 Sunshine Filly & Mare Turf Sprint for older state-bred horses at 1 mile on the turf. The numberFire algorithm suggests Sweet Dani Girl (7/2) and Sugar Fix (2/1) with Tyler Gaffalione riding as the top win contenders. Avow (4/1) is talented and also fits well in this formful race, per TRR with Irad Ortiz, Jr. riding for Pletcher.

3. Cajun's Magic and Legend's Can't Die, Race 10

FanDuel Racing Odds: 10/1 and 3/1

Race 10 is the $75, 000 Sunshine Sprint Stakes for older state-bred horses at 6 furlongs. The numberFire data picks the favorite Legends Can't Die (3/1) to win with top jockey Joel Rosario riding. Cajun's Magic (10/1) and Legal Deal (4/1) are projected in-the-money finishers.

Cajun's Magic has never run with Lasix, which is an advantage, and he's also the top pick of Top Race Reports. Lightening Larry (5/1) is returning from a layoff with sharp drills in the morning and can challenge for a piece of the trifecta.
