The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY – DEC 23

Try as I might, couldn’t get passed the favorite in today’s featured seventh race in Oldsmar, a preliminary allowances for 3-year-olds going a mile on the Tampa lawn.

Conversing has run four times, twice as a juvenile and has yet to run a bad race, what with three placings and a last out maiden win at Churchill.

Shug McGaughey is very productive in this type of spot as he is batting 23% wit last-out maiden breakers. Lasix clearly has done the trick, his two best runs coming with the diuretic this season.

The Into Mischief colt has worked thrice at his winter base in Indiantown, his figures are fastest and progressive, he’ll be saving ground from the pole position and leading rider Samy Camacho takes the call.

As stated, we couldn’t get past him.

Taking Conversing to win, no price restrictions, and boxing the exacta with Graham Motion’s Hendrickson (9-2) who is stabled on the Tampa backside.

The removal of blinkers and the mini-turnback will help him relax as he was a little too keen in his last at Laurel, which also was his seasonal debut. Rates to be kinder to handle in this spot.
