The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY-JAN 8

Today’s play is an obvious one, one of those take-what-they-give you opportunities because he’s been on the watch list for some time– and with this one you get to pick your own tough trip.

He entered our radar on debut, experiencing a horrible outing from post 10 going one mile on the Tampa turf, a key race in which the first two finishers came back to win next out.

We followed Alonzo Mosely (2-1) south to Gulfstream thereafter, where he met a loaded field, had another brutal trip, roared home beneath Joel Rosario but missed by a nose at 9-1. Ouch!

That was the race we chose to share on our home page. Check TAMPA BAY TODAY Video from last March 27 at Gulfstream and judge for yourself. Today he debuts as a new gelding and we’re not concerned about readiness as he comes from the Chris Clement shedrow.

This is no walkover. Arnaud Delacour’s Growl Tiger (5-2) will be a very tough out. Coming off a tough debut himself, in which he was beaten less than two lengths after racing wide throughout sprinting, he tries turf for a barn that’s profitable first-time-long, first-turf, and second time out.

We’re taking Alonzo Mosely straight, with no price restrictions, and an exacta box with ‘the Tiger.’
