The Gulfstream Championship Meet continues Saturday with a pair of stakes races. The 12 race card begins at 12:10 p.m. ET.

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).

Race 11 is the $125,000 Grade 3 Gulfstream Turf Sprint for older horses at 5 furlongs on the turf. Ten runners are lined up and the numberFire data picks Yes I am Free (6/1) to win ahead of the favorites, Carotari (3/1) and Belgrano (2/1).

Carotari won a pair of minor stakes last year, but has hit the board (2nd) in just 1-of-5 graded stakes. Yes I Am Free has won 10-of-24 starts including a Claiming race last month. He also won a Grade 3 race here 1 year ago. Belgrano is an 8-year-old War Front colt with 10 wins in 45 starts including a win here a month ago with a 101 speed figure.
