The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


And the worst part is that you can’t even take 30 seconds to make a case for another rival; Kimari (3-5) is such a layover.

Forget that the figures puts her in a different count, or that she was a 15 length winner on debut.

Or that she has stakes experience–at Royal Ascot no less–where she beat 23 rivals but couldn’t handle the 24th. She got beat a head!

Three fillies came out of there to win their next starts but not sure I could call it a key race when 21 of them have run back.

Rested 56 days , well drawn, and the blinkers come off so she should be nice and relaxed out there. Johnny takes the ride for Wesley Ward.

Will go on record to win but no wins bet here–unless 3-5 is available, which it won’t be.

I’m playing one-way exactas with newly blinkered, fast working Vast (5-1) and the talented Abscond (4-1), who won in this scenario on debut. Javier rides for the Kenneally barn, having a career year.

YESTERDAY: Bohemian Bourbon (11-1) didn’t have the easiest trip and didn’t get beat that far. A horse to watch, more small letters than large–just not entirely sure. Check it yourself; price probably will be right again.
