Gulfstream Park and Pegasus World Cup Horse Racing Picks for Saturday 1/29/22

Starting at 11:30 p.m. EST, we have 12 races at Gulfstream Park. Using numberFire’s projections as a guide, here are some of the best bets to make at FanDuel Racing.

As always, check for scratches and changes and monitor the weather and 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 -- adjusted for track, distances, and conditions.)

Glynn County and Temple, Race 7

FanDuel Racing Odds: 3/1 and 4/1

Race 7 is the $200,000 W. L. McKnight (G3) for older horses going a 1 1/2 miles on the turf. The top pick according to numberFire's data is Glynn County (3/1), who races at Gulfstream for the first time in 16 starts and has been off for 3 months. Longshots Bakers Bay (12/1) and Flying Scotsman (15/1) are also projected to finish in the money.

Guaranteed Tip Sheet adds that Abaan (2/1), the Todd Pletcher-trained favorite, is a half-length from winning four in a row, and that Temple (4/1) is a contender having finished in the money in 10 of 12 at Gulfstream Park.

Media Blitz (15/1) is making his second start for Michael Maker after being claimed. Maker has four runners in this race, including Glynn County and Temple.

Pacific Gale and Four Graces, Race 8

FanDuel Racing Odds: 8/1 and 9/2

Race 8 is a $200,000 Inside Information (G2) for older fillies and mares racing 7 furlongs. Races 6, 7, 8 and 11 are mandatory races for Saturday’s Day 2 of the NTRA National Horseplayers Championship (NHC) held at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

It’s more difficult to separate the contenders from the pretenders in this race, and numberFire's projected order of finish is Pacific Gale (8/1) to win followed by Dance D’Oro (6/1) and Jakarta (7/2).

This is the start of the late Pick 5, and Horse Racing Nation’s Super Screener lists the win contenders as Pacific Gale (top value), Crumb Bun (12/1), Just One Time (7/2) and Four Graces (9/2), who is mentioned as the most reliable board hitter.

Atone and Colonel Liam, Race 11

FanDuel Racing Odds: 20/1 and 3/1

Race 11 is the $1 Million Pegasus World Cup Turf for older horses at 1 1/8 miles. The defending champion is Colonel Liam (3/1), who is the top pick of numberFire, followed by Hit the Road (8/1) and Channel Cat (12/1).

The Super Screener says Colonel Liam is the top turf star with the best turn of foot. But longshot Atone (20/1) offers tremendous value as a closer who has finished in the trifecta (top 3) in 8 of 10 turf starts.

Colonel Liam is ridden by leading jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. for top trainer Todd Pletcher. FanDuel Racing's odds put his implied win probability as 26%.

Life is Good and Knicks Go, Race 12

FanDuel Racing Odds: 7/5 and 6/5

Race 12 is the $3 million Pegasus World Cup at 1 1/8 miles.

There is no value, as it should be a race between just the two top win contenders and Breeder’s Cup champions. Both Knicks Go (6/5) and Life is Good (7/5) are the top-two picks by numberFire’s projections.
