The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


As interesting maiden allowances to begin the Late Pick 4 in Hallandale features a field of seven but offers a good chance to upset favorite class-dropping Long Term (7-5) making his turf debut for Todd Pletcher.

Utmost respect for the barn obviously but taking a short price on a turf debut type that ran fast on dirt is not our kind but Happy Rumor (7-2).

Never having taken a backward step on turf, he is poised for another forward move coming off a race where he paired his 3YO top efforts despite lugging in through the lane.

Paco Lopez takes the call from Joe Orseno, a productive team up north in the Garden State making his third start for the barn, profitable in LAY-3 scenarios.

Taking Happy Rumor to win at 3-1 or greater and going for gusto with exacta boxes including forward-looking Fredo (5-1) ad turnback Guaranteed Speck (8-1).
