The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Interesting Saturday feature in Oldsmar, a preliminary allowances for fillies and mares 3 and up going one mile on turf. It’s a diverse group in which horses are coming from different classes and circuits and one is particularly intriguing, Map the Moment (4-1). Last raced at Meadowlands, this will be her fourth different venue in five lifetime starts.

The class rise appears steep on paper but sharp grass runners do this type of thing often, punch above their weight, and trainer Douglas Nunn is going to look very smart should this filly, claimed for $10,000 from Jonathan Thomas last out, get her job done.

Obviously there are issues about this $140,000 purchase. By Liam’s Map, you don’t give this kind away. When the filly was dropped into the box, she came out of the race an eight length winner. She’s not the fastest filly in here on the Thoro-Graph scale, she is forward with a healthy incremental pattern.

Theoretically she should continue marching. Her trainer is a 27% profitable first time off the claim. Her spacing is good and she owns two good local breezes. Jesus Castanon is very effective on turf. Her rail draw doesn’t hurt at all.

We’re taking Map the Moment to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Lady Dominance (7-2) beneath Samy Camacho and the sharp working Why Not Tonight (8-1).
