The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


For those seeking a single in any or all of the three multiple race sequences that conclude each racing day at Gulfstream, handicappers won’t find any logical suspect Valiant Force (1-1) in today’s eighth race.

Worried that today is his first start since Nov 5 (date sound familiar?), not to worry. That top figure effort was earned when second in the BC Juvenile Turf Sprint.

Valiant Force makes his first start for Jorge Delgado, who is a profitable 23% effective in that scenario, a profitable 24% with new acquisitions, a number rising to 30% when handing the reins over to Irad.

And the Delgado barn is live, winning with 2 of his last 6 entrants in the last two weeks.

If you need a clincher to support the fastest horse, know that the barn is a profitable 24% when adding first-Lasix, the case here.

Taking Valiant Force first with no price constraints, and key-boxing exactas with Brian Lynch’s pair of King Julien (8-1) profitable in LAY-2 scenarios, and with fast working Mackville (8-1), extra ticket with Valiant Force first.
