The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Sometimes certain trainers have a way with a horse that brings out the best. Such is the case in today’s feature when one checks the form of Atomically (2-1).

This filly had a great start to her career with Jose Pinchin calling the shots but that apparently was good good enough for the ownership.

The filly was moved to the barn of Todd Pletcher in an apparent attempt to raise her game to the highest level. But the ploy didn’t work.

After winning a Florida-bred stakes for Pinchin, she ran thrice in open graded company for Pletcher, and her best result was a show finish in a Grade 3 at 7 furlongs.

Following a six month break she returned to the Pinchin shed and finished second in a troubled trip, a race in which she was very likely best after repeated incidences that resulted in a runnerup finish at odds-on.

With that race under her girth strap, she stretches out to a suitably longer trip where Pinchin obviously expects good things, naming Edgar Perez, a team that has won at a 29% rate.

We’re taking her to get back on the foot foot at early line odds, key-boxing exactas with Seduction (4-1), dropping out of the Monmouth Oaks for Pletcher, and the streaking Pacific Princess (3-1), racing in career form for Roger Laurin.

  1. Back to the Cup bankroll we go again today in Hallandale. Far too much moisture in NYRA land of late. Riders Up and going for the triple with your selections at Gulfstream John. One wager I placed boxed using all three of your listed selections, and one ticket I singled Atomically over the other two reversed. Thanks in advance for the analysis.

    P.S. So wish you had Octave on your 🌈 yesterday.

    1. Tough beat on the win end Sunday but exacta paid well–sorry about your trifecta. Lamentably, did not include Octane in my Rainbow play but prescient enough to start a Late Pick 3 saver with he and the remaining ‘A’ horses. Paid well at $41 on a 50-cent play…
