The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


To begin the race week and Late Pick 3 in Hallandale this week, it appears that race shape will dictate the results.

Enter Alternate Rock (4-1) who fits those dynamics perfectly, assuming a prompt getaway that secures good striking position.

There’s no shortage of speed signed on this this five furlong turf dash and the Jose D’Angelo trainee is perfectly situated given his mid-gate draw.

From there, Jose Ortiz can secure a good stalking trip just off embattled leaders and kick home in midstretch.

We envision a similar scenario that was present when the Alternation filly was second in Monmouth’s Colleen. Check out her run at Monmouth Park, JUL 24, Race 5.

She has good spacing into this, a good blowout at her Palm Meadows base and is well spotted at this level.

Taking Alternate Rock to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with fast working Sassy Nature (3-1).
