The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


For a six horse field, there’s a lot going on, but perhaps no more so than Trust Daddy (4-1) making his belated season’s debut.

The last time we saw him last fall was in a stakes going long. He set the pace under pressure and gave late, a race in which half of the six horses making their subsequent start won–a three-winner key race.

He returns at an appropriate sprint distance having run faster as a juvenile than his rivals, including a worthy troubled favorite last out, Always Gambling (6-5).

In addition to the appropriate distance, he is also first-time Lasix, a new gelding and dropping into a claimer for the first time.

Romero Maragh gets the call from Jeremiah O’Dwyer, who know how to prepare horses returning from a layup. Finally, he is versatile running well from on top of the pace or can position himself and kick home.

Check out his run on on NOV 5 at Belmont. We did and were sufficiently impressed that he is very well spotted here.

Taking Trust Daddy to win at 3-1 or greater and a quinella with the favorite.
