The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Without a nominal feature on the Saturday docket, we’ve opted for the finale, a maiden claimer going two turns on Tapeta, an event that should ensure value, even on projected favorites.

The most probable winner is Straight Time (3-1) from prolific connections, who has been highly competitive, earning consistently fastest Thoro-Graph figures. Drawn-in AEs usually offer value.

Absent this Jose D’Angelo trainee, Brooklyn Dreams (4-1) was very competitive in his synth-two-turns debut vs. similar last out.

The Sano barn has had some success on this surface and Edgard Zayas rides it as if he owns it. He will be a tough out with any similar effort and hopefully will have a better trip than last time: GP, MAY 14, Race 5.

An interesting player at bettable odds is Tumiga (6-1) who never has run this cheaply on this surface. With added maturity since his last Tapeta run, improvement is expected.

Trainer Roger Laurin is profitable in all relevant categories and Emisael Jaramillo is riding in excellent form at the moment.

Absent the also-eligible, we’ll key on Brooklyn Dreams in exotics and would make a value straight wager on Tumiga at 5-1 or greater.
