The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


It’s the Battle of the Trends and fast fillies in Friday’s feature, a 7-furlong allowances for a handful of talented female sprinters.

On one side of the ledger is Tap Dance Fever (3-1), returning fresh for the highly productive Gerald Bennett barn who is reaching out for Samy Camacho, a proven partner over the years.

After pairing up a competitive Thoro-Graph figure, Bennett has freshened her and turns back into a sprint. Seven furlongs should be in the filly’s wheelhouse given her troubled sprint debut at Delaware and subsequent 7-length romp going two turns in her Oldsmar debut.

Meanwhile, Arnaud Delacour is using the same turnback tack with Be Sneaky (2-1) who, after breaking maiden at today’s trip, tried stakes company thrice, including a most recent G3 turf route in which she matched her top-figure third of three starts back.

Note, too, that in addition to her class, Delacour is 25% efficient going turf to dirt and at this meet has been a profitable 29% when teaming with Hector Diaz. Further, ‘Sneaky’s’ recent 48 2/5 blowout was third fastest of 85 three-year-olds to work last week over the track.

Resultingly, we’re taking Be Sneaky to win, no price restrictions, and boxing an exacta with Bennett’s freshened filly.
