Would like to complete the Early Pick 5 with a two-horse race on Tapeta Track going a mile and 70 yards.
The major suspects are Born a Gambler (9-5) and Kitodan (7-2). The good news is there’s not much to separate them, so why take the favorite?
We won’t. Take a look at that Tapeta try here, DEC 21, Race 9 to confirm he took a step forward.
Beaten five lengths in his listed stakes turf debut, he showed improved speed his first time on synthetics when dropped in class. He showed speed, dropped back, and reengaged late.
Now add first-Lasix to the package and knowing that Jorge Delgado is a profitable 23% in third start off the layup with three purposeful works and a switch to Javier Castellano, riding well at the moment.
We’re taking Kitodan straight at 5-2 or greater, and a quinella with the favorite.
