Don’t believe that Love Foreverafter (2-1) could have been more impressive in her racing debut on turf here on January 6. She takes her next stop in today’s fifth in Oldsmar on the rise into optional claiming company.
Well bet on debut, she saved ground with the odds on favorite to her outside down the backside, moved up approaching the far turn, continued her run without urging, then was forced to wait behind horses approaching headstretch.
The favorite took command into the lane, ‘Love’ wheeled out into the 4-path, showed an eye catching turn of foot to run right past the public choice and drew off while lengthening stride late and galloping out strongly.
Trainer Jorge Delgado makes the switch to one of his favorite riders, Chantal Sutherland, who should have little difficulty establishing inside position again,
As stated, the competition is tougher as she meets a winner that has won two straight over claiming company, another impressive winner of its debut, and a horse dropping into a claimer fir the first time after suffering through a wide trip on turf debut.
Taking Love Foreverafter to win at 2-2 or greater and key-boxing her first and second with Waitwaitdontellme (8-1), Super Caro (8-5) and X Y Lady (15-1)
