Because of this gelding’s promising local debut on turf earlier this month, and the connections of Mark Casse and Antonio Gallardo, it is understood that Quantum Velocity deserves favoritism on the early line at 2-1.
However, we are not willing to concede the win, not when 3-1 is available on a faster horse Indy Lyonwho by any measure deserves the call. In fact, the Marie Bowersock trainee is the fastest three year old in this event.
He will be on or near the lead throughout beneath veteran Ronnie Allen, will appreciate the class relief but it is first-time Lasix that should be the key here, as he has had a tendency to weaken late in his races.
He has proven that he can distribute energy at all points, as he did breaking maiden on JANUARY 16, RACE 10 here. See the Tampa Bay Today video on our homepage.
We’re taking Indy Lyon to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the Casse favorite and class riser Thru the Vine (6-1).
