The Gulfstream Championship Meet continues following Saturday's big day or racing that included a winning pick in the Kentucky Derby prep race Holy Bull Stakes. Starting at 12:10 p.m. ET on Sunday, we have nine races.

As always, check the program for scratches and changes, monitor the weather and keep an eye on the track conditions with rain likely and some races taken off the turf.

(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 4 is a Maiden claimer for 3-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles on the All Weather Track. Ten runners are entered, and Black Ice (6/5) is the heavy favorite and top pick by numberFire's data with top jockey Luis Saez riding.

Black Ice is sired by Keen Ice. She finished second here as the 4/5 favorite less than three weeks ago and should break her maiden this time. Rebate (6/1) from off the pace is capable and projected to hit the board along with Two Beer Buzz (12/1).

2. Mama Strong and Singing the Oldies, Race 7

FanDuel Racing Odds: 3/1 and 4/1

Race 7 is a Claiming race for 3-year-old fillies sprinting 5 1/2 furlongs on the All Weather Track. The numberFire algorithm picks Mama Strong (3/1) to win with Find Your Passion (7/2) a top challenger and Singing the Oldies (4/1) projected to hit the board with top jockey Jose Ortiz riding.

Mama Strong gets first-time Lasix for leading trainer Mark Casse. She broke her maiden here in November and just missed against the favorite in her follow-up race in December.

Race 8 is an Allowance race for older horses at 1 1/16 miles. The numberFire projections pick the heavy favorite Charge It (3/5) to win. Clapton (9/2) is expected to hit the board.

Charge It is a son of Tapit and has not raced in seven months. He won his last start in a Grade 3 race and also finished runner-up in the Florida Derby last year to earn a spot in the Kentucky Derby. Leading jockey Luis Saez rides for top trainer Todd Pletcher.
