The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Two full-field turf sprints highlight the racing weekend in Oldsmar and we will stick with the first division for fillies, the Lightning City at 5 furlongs.

There’s no argument that Train to Artemis (3-1) is a deserving favorite. Consistently faster on the Thoro Graph scale, she draws the pole for Kelly Breen who reaches out for main man Paco Lopez in this spot.

But the potential garden-tripper will be the race underlay at post time and we will opt for the better price with well intended Poseidon’s Passion (5-1).

She confirmed her fondness for the Tampa turf winning an NX3 prep for this last out, taking pace pressure and rebreaking late to nail down her third win in six lifetime runs in Oldsmar.

Today she makes her third start off a layup, a scenario at which trainer James Gulick excels with a profitable win rate of 24%. Antonio Gallardo, aboard in her recent prep for this, takes the return call.

Taking Poseidon’s Passion to win at 7-2 or greater, ab exacta box with ‘Artemis,’ and using fast-working Spun Glass with Camacho in the trifecta mix.
