With the weather promising not to have an adverse effect on either racing surface, we’re back on our preferred turf surface, something that we and Searching for Gold (3-1) will appreciate.
Check out the gelding’s most recent start on the TAMPA BAY TODAY vide– clearly his career best try in which he chased the pace and continued very gamely to the finish while the pace was heating up in RACE 8., MAR 20 in Oldsmar.
His Thoro-Graph performance figures are first rate, is versatile enough to take advantage of a mini-turnback, and he holds his good form as his recent sharp blowout indicates; it was the fifth fastest of 64 three-year-olds to work that week. Raul Mena takes the return call from trainer Derek Ryan.
Taking Searching for Gold to win, no price restrictions, and boxing an exacta with Beach Warrior (4-1), who showed much improved speed in a pressed-all effort with Daniel Centeno taking a return call from Mike Dini.
