The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Is there any doubt that Gerald Bennett’s Crafty King (3-1) lover the Tampa lawn? Consider:

The 4-year-old has never finished off the board in four career runs in Oldsmar, winning half his starts on this ground.

In his start two back off a 125-day layup, he won his return to North Florida, an N2L for $16,000 then was rained off the turf last out at the $25K level, losing ground every step of the way while overmatched.

Today, Crafty King returns to win winning $16K level in an N3L given that he is 21% effective in LAY-3 scenarios and that leading rider Samy Camacho owns a 25% strike rate for this barn after 625 rides.

We’re taking Crafty King to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with distance-loving Daniel Sun (7-2) and Kingdom On Paws (9-2 for trainer Rafael Schisti, 22% profitable with new acquisitions making its second start.
