The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


We do, in today’s Lucky Coin at the Spa.

We all know Disco Partner (8-5) is a worthy favorite and most probable winner. He’s done it over and over.

But Fig Jelly (8-1) has improved this summer and while early line odds won’t likely be available, would take half that much to prove a point.

He was scratched out of a recent spot awaiting this, Jason Servis is 35% effective with shippers, ‘Fig’ has tactical speed, can kick and picks up Javier.

Looks like a good spot to trip out.

Taking Fig Jelly to win at 4-1 or more, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding Shekky Shabaz (5-1), Final Frontier (9-2) and Strike Power (4-1) beneath in a super-exotics mix.

YESTERDAY: They bet Crystalle down to 8-5; likely the wise guys were as impressed with her debut as I was.
