The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


There’s no question that Christophe Clement has the worthy favorite to break maiden in today’s finale. Oskar Martinez (9-5) chased the pace throughout his debut to just miss in a race that has produced three next-out winners. Then again, no guts, no glory.

Elsinore (7-2) has a bit more experience than the favorite and in his second start he moved forward in a manner you like to see, but not too much of a jump to expect a regression.

The improvement came with the addition of Lasix and a switch to an apprentice at the added distance, going 9 furlongs.

Apprentice Laureano Sosa gets a return call and the Godolphin runner gets another 5-pounds pull for meeting colts in her third start.

Given the high profile connections signed on, early line odds or greater should be available.

Taking Elsinore to win at 7-2 or greater, an exacta key-box with the favorite and Tee At One (9-2), taking a confident class rise of a quickly run debut, and adding Johnson (8-1) to the trifecta mix.
