The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


The Easter Sunday feature in Hallandale, the day’s ninth, is for Florida-bred turf-synth specialists, going 5-1/2 furlongs on Tapeta track. And no horse appreciates the ground as much as Richy (5-2).

We’re not guessing as all three of lifetime wins have come on All Weather in six attempts and likes this course in particular given the gelding’s (3) 2-1-0 Gulfstream Park slate.

He’s tactical enough to trail the leaders from close-up mid-pack and broke his maiden at today’s trip and will appreciate today’s added sixteenth.

In his recent return from a brief layup on turf, he broke flat-footed then raced very wide throughout which never works on grass. See for yourself: Gulfstream Park, APR 2, Race 2.

Edwin Gonzalez takes the return call from James Gulick.

Taking Richy to win at 2-1 or greater and quinellas with very sharp Grainger County (3-1) and Famous Gent (4-1), getting a switch to Irad for his second start off the recent claim.
