The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


A Saratoga horse to watching showing up in early November in South Florida I take as a good sign–and Highly Flammable (4-1) makes the cut.

Our rule is to give these types three chances or less should it win within that time frame. This is start number three following a “much the best, bet back” trip.

Following that turf score he caught yielding ground in his next out then an off-the-turfer at am unsuitably longer route.

Today the gelded 4-year-old is back at his best trip and returns to his favorite surface, Tapeta Track, over which he ran a lifetime best figure.

The spacing is perfect and the Casse barn is 18% profitable going dirt to synth. An inside draw and switch to Emisael Jaramillo seals the deal for us.

Taking Highly Flammable to win, no price restrictions, key boxing exactas with Gephard (6-1) and Felix (7-2).
