The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Race dynamics dictate and one of these three-year-old fillies figures to get loose easily, especially on the stretch-out. On paper, she’s too fast for these, and if the surface is holding speed, Magical Luna (4-5) with Alex Cintron is a very probable winner. She won at this level by 8 two starts back. However…

We must call your attention to two other fillies; uncoupled stablemate Landing Zone (8-1), and One Slick Chick (5-1), who will appreciate the turn-back with Trevor McCarthy re-riding. She might have found this to be her proper present level when she finished third in her return to Laurel.

However, we’re a sucker for the longer half of uncoupled entries, and it may require your watching two videos to make the best informed decision.

Here are dates for the two races; see if you agree from the Laurel Live Video that Landing Zone has better action of fast footing than she does in slop, and she was a game third in the wet at a mile last time. That race was Dec. 13, Race 2.

The race we’re posting on the HRI homepage is the fast-track sprint vs. better fillies: RACE 3 on NOV 28.

We’re taking Landing Zone to win at 5-1 or greater—especially since 7-pound apprentice Alberto Burgos is 2-for-2 for this barn through Sunday and is getting weight from all—and we’re key-boxing exactas with her stablemate and One Slick Chick, an extra ticket with favored mate on top.
