The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Given her pedigree (Chitu), trainer Joe Orseno gave his Florida-bred filly a chance to break maiden by trying Tapeta Track last out and nearly succeeded.

And Hot Foot Susie (6-1) nearly pulled it off, finishing third, beaten a length and a half, off a class rise from her previous run at Tampa Bay Downs.

Even if the patient died–so to speak–the operation was a success, the four-year-old running faster on the Thoro-Graph scale than she had in her prior six starts.

It was a significantly improved effort but not so much as to empty the tank. And she did not have an easy time of it on MAR 2, Race 5.

She rallied wide into the stretch and failed to change to her proper right lead. With that experience, another forward move is possible.

We’re taking Hot Foot Susie to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with sharp worker Gayelette (3-1) and price shot Get By (15-1), exiting a key race.
