We have a Horse to Watch in today’s seventh and it’s his third strike, everything else being equal: Horses get three chances if the make that list or get dropped should they win within that time frame. One more caveat; we need this race to remain on the turf, certainly no given after Saturday rains.
The race in which we picked was on DEC 23 in which my notes said “wide, wider and widest” throughout, check out the Tampa Bay Today video on the homepage and judge for yourself. We think he might have been too close to the early pace in his latest. He’s nicely posted and properly spotted here.
Se we’re taking Mountain Holiday (6-1) to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with a couple that appear forward-looking on the Thoro-Graph scale, Initforthelove (5-1), Violator (4-1) and also-eligible price shot, Mr. Sarcastic (12-1).
If on dirt, Red Hood (8-1) is clearly fastest and will be a tough out with a repeat of his last.
