I’m Taking a Ride; Need a Lift?


Jumping on Florida’s Turnpike to Tampa for today’s feature race, a competitive restricted claiming affair on the turf for older fillies and mares.

It seems as if Leigh Delacour is winning every turf route in sight and in Cavallo Murano (3-1)-- part of a coupled entry with Dixie’s Rebellion (Goncalves named on both)—owns the best performance figures over this course and drops significantly in her first start for this barn.

Further, she’s returning off a long layup for a barn that’s a profitable 22% efficient with 90 day-plus layups. She’ll be a tough out.

However, it’s Vertical Lift (7-2), half of an uncoupled Joan Scott-trained entry that looks more intriguing and could offer some value with her mate, Alexandria Wa, the early line favorite at 5-2.

Her best go has come at today’s distance, on this course, and the mare picks up Mark Guidry, who’s been riding the turf course like he owns it.

Taking Vertical Lift to win at 7-2 or greater, an exacta box with the Delacour entry, and adding Just Call My Name (5-1) to the exotics mix.

Running Totals: (1027) 318-203-148 Total Dollar Return: $2,193.00 [win selections only]
