The Northern Florida division of Graham Motion’s program certainly found a good level with Whiskeymac when he dropped the maiden down to the $32K level coming off the layup Christmas week.
After recovery from a troubled break, he went to the lead, was pressed hard on the pace, tiring in deep stretch as if in need of the run. Check it to see what you think: Tampa Bay Downs, DEC 22, Race 5.
That off-the-turfer Oldsmar debut was followed by his turf debut where he showed immediate improvement, tracking the pace this time then took a premature move in the lane and was nailed in the final strides.
Having improved with the switch to turf and addition of Lasix, he is set for best, a spot in which he can use his tactical speed to best advantage and rates to make amends with Motion’s go-to Tampa rider, Angel Suarez.
Taking Whiskeymac to win, no price restrictions, and boxing an exacta with price shot Copazo (10-1).
