A terrific end to the racing week in Oldsmar with maiden allowances for fillies going nine furlongs on the Tampa turf as a field of nine line up. Making it all the tougher six of the uncoupled entrants and trained by three horsemen.
What to do? Let’s keep this uncomplicated and stick to the form, in this case that would be Ravir who broke from the nine slip for Christophe Clement who will also saddle first-timer Spatial (8-1) with Hector Diaz in the boot. Samy Camacho is taking a return call on the early line favorite.
Not only did Ravir earn the best figure on the Thoro-Graph scale, it wasn’t the easiest of trips. After breaking sharply, filly was taken in hand, raced between horses for nearly a half-mile, was allowed to drop back , then rallied wide on the turn displaying good turn of foot for the place.
Daughter of Uncle Mo came within a length of debuting Marlborough Road who got the jump and galloped out like a wild horse after the race and Ravir was nearly six length in front of the third finisher. Today she goes first-time Lasix.
We’re taking Ravir to win, no price restrictions, and boxing the exacta with Federalist Papers (9-2) who finished willingly behind the choice after shaking clear late–a grinder type should relish today’s trip.
