The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Clearly, Brendan Walsh’s Aspen (8-5) appears to be the most probable winner of today’s fifth in Oldsmar as she returns north following a small forward effort at Gulfstream last out. Turf ace Jose Ferrer has the call.

But what has been interesting is that sharp runners with competitive figures have done well despite moving up in class on the Tampa turf this meet.

Indeed, E M’s Treasuregirl (6-1) owns Thoro-Graph ratings that are comparable to the favorite, the price disparity due to her rise out of the claiming ranks into maiden allowance company.

Hector Villa-Gomez has a lower profile but is quite adept on grass, trainer Jose Chavez has been on a good recent roll and has been 21% profitable when hooking up with Villa-Gomez and the spacing is excellent.

Taking E.M’s Treasuregirl to win at 9-2 or greater, and an exacta box with the favorite.
