The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


After Thursday’s weather/track condition cancellation, we’ll play it safe with a Tapeta two-turner going as the sixth event-=although not safe as we go for the gusto. Sprezzatura (8-1) fits that bill.

There are several that are faster, hence the price, but this newly turned 4-year-old has made the 3 to 4 transition well. In fact, he has never taken a backward step in a six-race career.

But wait there’s more. He qualified for this condition when he was entered for $25K three runs back and his only win came on this surface, at this venue.

Dale Romans has long since left Florida for the Midwest but left this girl here for occasions such as this. Romans and Edgar Perez have done so good value-laden work here and may do so again in this spot.

Taking no lower than 6-1 straight, barring significant scratches, and key boxing exactas with Okay Free (7-2) for Carlos David, a profitable 24% lifetime on this surface, and Sudoku Terry for Rohan Crichton, a worthy 29% effective with new acquisitions.
