This is correct if you're looking a specific place on the continuum of gait. If all you want is a generic "single foot" then I suspect the percentage of success will be significant with a gaited/non-gaited cross.
If you're looking for a specific gait (running walk, paso llano, rack, etc.) then I suspect the percentage of success will be rather low.
