The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

GOING GULFSTREAM – DEC 18

With so much going on, Sunday’s featured eighth race with its seven horse field could not be more inscrutable. Fast workers, troubled trip runners, ship-ins, all doing their inscrutable part.

In the end, we’re settling on Souper Blessing (7-2), who in his last raced between horses much of the way, steady between rivals in the stretch but courageously re-rallied for a piece of it.

See your yourself: Gulfstream Park, NOV 19, Race 10.

He is the most experienced, has been battle tested in a number of overnight stakes, blew out a strong half-mile for this, and gets a switch to late-punch Irad Ortiz, giving him a slight edge over his ‘Tapeta’ rivals.

But we’re worried about what we don’t know, Mike Maker has a recently claimed Canal (5-2) who won his first start for the barn despite altering course and finishing on the wrong lead bit goes first-time Tapeta.

In addition, price shot Master of None (10-1), uncoupled mate of ‘Souper’, also has worked strongly, at Fair Hill and locally, for a barn noted for its profitability with shippers.

But we’ll opt for conditioning and experience, taking Souper Blessing to win at 3-1 or greater and key-key exactas with Canal and Master of None.
