The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY – APR 3

There are three intriguing horses in today’s featured sixth race, for four-year-olds and up, going a mile on the Tampa turf course; Tatterazzi (10-1), recent graduate Where’s Oliver (8-1) and Count Again (3-1).

The former is a filly vs males for John Terranova, having an outstanding meet and that cannot be done unless you push many of the right buttons. That she is facing males is an extreme sign of confidence.

Since her FEB 16 maiden breaker against claimers of her own sex, in which she led them a merry chase before sprinting home with authority, she’s had four works into this, two of the bullet variety which must have impressed her trainer that she would run her back against males allowance males.

While tempting, and while we liked ‘Oliver’s’ late kick a lot, we ultimately opted for Count Again (3-1), making his third career start. Obviously, there have been issues. But after a good-finish third sprinting at Ellis, he reappeared at Keeneland six weeks later and broke his maiden with a stakes-like turn of foot.

His rally must be seen to be believed and please find it at your favorite ADW. The Tampa Bay Today Video normally provides a look at our selection but because Keeneland video is unavailable on YouTube, instead, check out course winner Where’s Oliver, Tampa RACE 8, MAR 1.

But as long as he passes the vet, we’re going all in and taking Count Again straight, without price restrictions, and will key-box exactas with Terranova’s filly and late kicking Where’s Oliver.

  1. Nice KB EX call today John. Going forward I am placing all of my trust in T-Bills, Gold, and Pricci. Lol.

    Keep Photos by Toni and yourself socially safe. Updated safe sex guieline: I mentioned “Five Feet” to my better half, and she replied “I want at
    least eight.” Makes sense to me. Handicappers minimum Eight Feet, all others Five.

    Light heartened humor is one of the few antidotes remaining against the overwhelming dispair surrounding all of us.

    Stay well and safe to everyone reading.

  2. Goes without saying McD, to all the HRI Faithful. So far, so good. We have been lucky and blessed, a great parlay…
