The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


We have no choice but to take what is given in the Friday finale, a victory that would assure the pot of gold will still be there Saturday when the Rainbow 6 pool has a mandatory payout.

There is good reason for Queen Karima (7-5) to be installed as a heavy favorite. She moved forward on the Thoro-Graph scale in start two incrementally, indicating there’s more left in the tank.

The Practical Joke filly as a good second in both lifetime starts, staying on well after chasing the pace–see APR 2, Race 11.

With a first-timer directly to her left in the pole position, and given her best of 24 23 3/5 breeze the week of May 5.

She should gain the lead with her added experience, which was a live second-out key that produced two next-out winners. Luis and Edgar Perez are a profitable 31% team when they hook up.

No excuses here. We’re taking Queen Karina to win, no price restrictions, key-boxing exactas with fast-working Regards (4-1) and Oak Street Beach (4-1) from the productive team of Gonzalez and Proctor.
