The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


The Friday feature at Gulfstream is a mid-class claimer for three-year-olds and up going 1-1/16 miles on Tapeta Track and an open event it is.

However, we’re not going to try overthinking this and have settled on the only entrant that has won two races; all other boast but one victory.

Silent Chaos is taking a considerable class drop which will help enormously as he appeared outclassed when given a steep jump on Mark Casse’s Florida string appears ready to cash out following an astute claim.

Haltered from his sprint debut, he broke maiden with a double jump in class and returned to beat optional claimers making his two-turn debut on the All Weather.

Today he’s back in at his proper level–albeit vs. winners this time–but should benefit from his run when overmatched, married to the rail before swinging out to no avail in a dull performance. That’s how we interpreted his last. Take a look at Gulfstream Park, JUL 3, Race 7 and decide for yourself.

The gelded Overanalyze soph has won himself out already, and a potential twice-the-level-of-claim move into another barn is how this is played correctly.

Taking Silent Chaos to win, no price restrictions, and quinellas with properly place No Man Left Behind and Honesto for the Luis Ramirez barn, a profitable 25% first time off the claim.
