Note: Racing Canceled due to flooding in the area.
With all the rain in the area in recent days it’s safest to start out on the Tapeta and today’s sixth presents an opportunity for an upset.
Cosmic Speculation (2-1) is a deserving favorite off his last race, a top figure turf effort. he has run well on the All-Weather and the Bucchero line has shown an affinity for synth.
But if either Smart Striker (9-2) or Keanu (5-1) come with their ‘A’ game each is capable of an upset, the latter back in with state-breds after trying graded company on dirt recently to no avail but well placed here.
Smart Striker goes for new connections off the recent $50K claim by Teresa Pompay. The sophomore colt owns competitive figures and his recent half-mile blowout was 4th fastest of 120 peers the week of APR 5.
We’re buying that he will run back to his maiden breaking run on OCT 30.
