The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY – APR 2

With dicey weather forecasts throughout the state, we’re eschewing our preferred turf tack and sticking with a dirt sprint, and a good one at that; a secondary allowance optional featuring some fast sprinters.

At first, the temptation was to take Brewmeister (5-1) from top connections, a live ship-in barn, from a minimal sample, but with a late run style that fits the race’s speedy dynamics.

But the pull of Willy Boi (2-1) is too strong despite the lengthy layup. For openers, he’s a fresh, newly turned four-year-old getting first-Lasix for Jorge Delgado, 23% effective with new acquisitions and a profitable 21% with layups of 90 days or more.

The quiet hands of Chantal Sutherland come with the package, his workline boasts some lively drills and the promise of a wet surface helps the cause. and he likes it here.

Check out his run in last year’s state-bred Sophomore Stakes in the HRI Video Section of the homepage., Tampa Bay, MAR 28, Race 7. It was his lone start in Oldsmar, a game placing at 7 furlongs. He prefers today’s shorter trip.

We’re taking Will Boi to win at 2-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Brewmeister and the other speedster signed on, Dougie D Oro (7-2).
