The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Virtually from the gate, anyway who watched You Talkin Yo Me (2-1) closely in his last race knew it would not be his day.

And it wasn’t the stretch interference that did him in. It certainly didn’t help, but tracking a moderate pace while racing wide is anathema to synthetic horses as much as it is to turf runners.

Things likely will be different in today’s penultimate heat because a) the level of competition is far weaker than the last group he met and because he’s back in the Kathleen O’Connell’s care.

His best runs have come under her care and he’s set up well for a rebound in this spot.

We’re taking the gelded five year old to rebound, with no price restrictions, and key boxing exactas with class dropping Caxambas Candy (4-1) from the live barn of Kent Sweeney and Uncle Armando (6-1) with hot-riding Miguel Vasquez (6-1).
