The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


For sure, there are some interesting players in today’s fifth race on the Tampa turf, what with Paris Peacock (7-2), making second start in U.S.; My Lips Are Sealed (9-2), making her second start on the Tampa turf for the formidable Dini/Gallardo tandem and recent tough-tripper Anador 6-1).

But I’d by lying if I said anything but I can’t get passed the class dropping Panama Red (6-5) to the reliable Arnaud Delacour and Daniel Centeno team.

She had every right to get tired when ambitiously paced in a Grade 3 making U.S. debut, her first start since last summer. Indeed, she had the lead in upper stretch, understandably weakened late going still was beaten only 3-1/2 lengths.

Subsequently she worked strongly for this, her most recent 48 2/5 breeze from the gate being 15th fastest of 108 runners the week of March 11. A trail away from the barrier for a second American start sealed the deal for the filly and for us.

Taking Panama Red to win with no price restrictions, an exacta box with Paris Peacock, and will key-brox her first and second in trifectas with the trio above.
