Your Place, or Mine
We're heading to NoFla today for their feature, run as the first race; a terrible trend--racing the best horses on the card early in the program.
Anyway, today's featured first, an allowance sprint, has attracted a field of six and two, Funny Pages (4-1), and the early line second choice My Place Anytime (2-1)--who should go favorite considering he owns the best recent back figures and enters this off a New Pace Top. Has good position, early speed and kick, and barn is profitable 23% effective with third-off-the-layup starters.
Taking My Place Anytime to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Funny Pages from the Wilkes barn that's having a good meet with its Tampa runners--GP not so much--and taps Ronnie Allen for this spot.
