The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


A head-scratching feature in Oldsmar today, an NX1 allowances for older horses going 1-1/16 miles on the Tampa turf, a good spot to get a little creative.

There appears to be enough speed signed on that would favor the ralliers and while there are several of those, we’re reaching out for price shot Sociallongdistance (8-1) who appears to have found a home in NoFla.

The maturing four year old owns two lifetime wins in 10 starts and both wins have come over this course. And it might have been three except for getting into gear bit too late in last, second beaten a neck.

Check out TAMPA BAY DOWNS, JAN 27, Race 7 and see for yourself.

Jose Alonzo will need to assess the right time to move and hopefully get first run among the ralliers.

Betting Sociallongdistance to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing trifectas first and second with the speedy Justintimeforwine (7-2), hard-trying Great Britain (4-1), very sharp Go Mike (6-1) and big finishing Battle Scars (3-1).

  1. I liked both your Best Values yesterday for 2nd & 3rd in the Rebel John, but I did not trust Giant Mischief for the Win. Anyhoot, today I am in lock-step with the Loughlin narratives at Tampa and Gulfstream. Yesterday’s winnings now reinvested, I find myself in Red Barber’s “Catbird Seat” with two shots at the free throw line at both Tampa and Gulfstream. Win and Key-Box Tri Free Throws no less. My sweet spots as well. “Bet a Little, Win a Lot”. Wheel of Good Fortune Day as well Broadway, as I also pick up a $5 rebate from Twinspires by simply mirror imaging your wagers, I cash out on a “Wager $25, Get $5 promotion”.

    Sorry if I cost you a score yesterday John, but later today hopefully we can meet up at the cashier’s windows. Safe journeys my friend.

  2. Nice call at GP. Cashed on a Tri box and a Tri straight. Socialongdistance looked like he might have taken Race 7 at Tampa, but just left himself with just a bit too much ground to make up. Thanks for a fun go of it.
