The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Only six horses entered the featured seventh in Hallandale that begins the race week nevertheless it does present a good opportunity for a value play.

Howgreatisnate (9-5) is a deserving favorite on the strength of number earned and company kept. Further, Elizabeth Dobles does well with new acquisitions.

And Todd Pletcher has won to feat with Cuvier (5-2) who finished third when last seen at Tampa Bay–third to Kingsbarns that is. Paco Lopez is another reason to fancy the Collected three-year-old.

But then 5-1 wouldn’t be available on Michael Lehrman trainee Big Data. Compared to his two rivals, Big Data is a mere recent maiden breaker but it was a sharp score on today’s track, at today’s trip.

Check out APR 22, Race 4 to see what we mean. The Cloud Computing colt responded to Chantal Sutherland’s soft hands and Lehrman is profitable with his LAY-2 runners, the case here.

We like that his run represented a forward move but it was incremental, leaving room for further development. Sutherland takes a return call, as will we.

Betting Big Data to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with his rival here.
