The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

‘GOING GULFSTREAM’-JAN 2

Despite what appears to be physical issues which has limited his participation, Late Pick 5 and Rainbow 6 players will seriously consider Uphold the Law (5-2) to be a highly likely single candidate.

The suspicions arise it did take the colt to age three for debut, which he won easily and in fast time by anyone’s clock. And trainer Michael Stidham protected him further by keeping him in restricted Florida-bred company.

Despite his facile debut in March, Uphold the Law didn’t reappear until November with the same result, another margin victory, again in fast time.

I guess today’s run could be considered a fast turnaround as he returns in 40 days.

Stidham has found another excellent spot, an NX1 in open company in which his stater-bred allowance win doesn’t disqualify him from this class level.

Having broken maiden on debut at the hybrid 6-1/2 furlong trip, the mini-stretch to 7, an outside draw and services of the meet’s leading rider all augur well. Check out that debut: Gulfstream Park, MAR 18, Race 6.

We’re taking Uphold the Law to win, no price restrictions, and making quinellas with Town Classic (7-2) off the recent Joseph Saffie claim {31% scenario] and speedy Bagboss (3-1), who has little choice but to be on the engine from his rail draw.
