The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


For those looking to attack the mandatory Rainbow 6 payout this afternoon with its $1.4 million carryover, the best of luck.

And you will need plenty of it. With today’s large turf fields, the races are a challenging today as they were on yesterday’s Fountain of Youth card. Maybe we can help.

In today’s turf marathon, there are, per usual, many directions one can go. And we’re going for one of two uncoupled pair from Shug McGaughey.

Dripping Gold (9-2) returns fresh and at the proper level following a head-bobbing loss at this trip in his New York finale on a great Thoro-Graph line showing incremental improvement with Jose Ortiz, who has a knack with grass horses running long.

Further, while counter-intuitive, the outside draw at this trip here is not the problem it need be assuming a clean break, something you’ll likely benefit from with Ortiz in the boot. Check out Aqueduct, NOV 16, Race 6.

It won’t be easy but the reward should be commensurate. Taking Dripping Gold to win at early line odds or greater, and will key-box 1-2 in exactas and trifectas with pole sitting Experienced (5-1), recent Gargan claim Grand Journey (9-2) and nicely developing up-sider Howe Street.
