The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY – JAN 6

The Friday Feature in Oldsmar is a stater allowances going one mile on the Tampa turf offering a combination and sharp class risers and a few dropping into this spot. The tote, per usual, will tell.

I don’t know where price shot Anvil’s (10-1) last race came from, but if he can duplicate that effort this field will have him to beat in today’s seventh race. Seeing will be believing: Tampa Bay Downs, NOV 26, Race 3.

The gelded four year old had speed from the outset, was carefully but confidently handled by Angel Arroyo, who was aboard for the first time, separated himself from the chasing into the far turn and drew off, driving at the end.

Trainer/owner Herman Parra gave him recovery time and confidently moves him up in class while protecting him in this starter allowances. Arroyo re-rides and again has inside position.

North Carolina broke his maiden for $15,000 off the $7,500 claim by Katherine Gucciardo on PID’s Tapeta Track and is now back on grass. He has been training up a storm locally and gets switch to turf ace Jose Ferrer.

Taking Anvil to win, no price restrictions and boxing an exacta with North Carolina (3-1) who at one time faced special weight rivals at Belmont.
