Saturday’s fifth heat in Oldsmar is particularly interesting, for today and possibly for the future of these newly minted three year olds, going one mile on the Tampa turf.
As a rule, we don’t take debut types going long first time out against horses with good proven form. But I can make an exception for these connections, Peter Brant owner and Chard Brown trained Ganado (2-1).
When your workouts are in the top 10 percentile–my criterion–especially over demanding surfaces such as Payson Park where you can hardly hear the hoofbeats go by, it’s an attention grabber.
And given that Ganado is a homebred and is a first foal of a prominent Irish stallion, indicates a live runner to me.
After that, Tuddenham Hill (9-2) and Pike Place (7-2) raced well last out, a race from which one horse returned to win its next start–a key race in training? Check out DEC 3, Race 10 on HRI homepage
