If we’re thinking alike, then you also believe that when trainers have a reason to place horses aggressively, and they do, then good things usually follow.
We’re thinking this will be the case in tomorrow’s seventh race, all for a new trainer, one that shows a lifetime profit on turf despite a low win percentage. Daniel Sanner fits that bill.
When last seen, Westward Look (6-1) was breaking maiden at the $16,000 claiming level for Tom Proctor.
Today, the new barn doubles him in price for his first start vs. winners off the claim by the owner/trainer. And if that race is the measure, we understand why.
Stretching out and going long for the first time, the well bet second start say perfectly behind a lively tempo, tipped out when ready, took the lead, separated himself from the group, and won in hand.
See if you agree: JAN 6, RACE 9, TAMPA BAY DOWNS.
We’re taking Westward Look to win, at approximate post time odds, and key-boxing exactas with Jeha (3-1) and Indy Lion (7-2).
