The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY – JAN 26

Don’t allow field size to stop you from taking a hard look at Wednesday’s feature in Oldsmar. While it boasts a very solid favorite, there are two shippers in this six-pack that could prove the key to this 6F allowances/optional $75,000.

Kwai Chang (9-2) is in from Prairie Meadows for Jon Arnett after showing big speed from the rail last out in a restricted stakes.

This is a proper spot for local debut, the barn is a profitable 21% with 90-days+ layups, gelding’s been working here since late November and Arnett reaches out for Pablo Morales. How can he not be live?

From the outside slip, the same spot at which he broke maiden on debut Finger Lakes, Sue’s Shoes (7-2) broke like a shot, controlled the tempo and never was seriously threatened in deep stretch despite hanging on his left lead.

He shows up here for new trainer Tom Foley who picks his spots carefully, has a strong blowout for this and gets first-Lasix and speed rider Wilmer Garcia.

The problem is these two talented speedsters could hook up and set the table for Morgan Point (2-1) who boke maiden impressively on this surface, found the 7F Pasco a bit too ambitious.

Now he turns back to his best trip reuniting with winning partner Samy Camacho. Check out his maiden breaker here: DEC 4, Race 3. We’re playing the percentages here.

Taking Morgan Point to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with both speed rivals.
