The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Co-features today in Hallandale and, more of a turf-file than a marathon man, we’ll look at the Via Borghese going 11 furlongs on the reconstituted Gulfstream Park turf.

Todd Pletcher and Luis Saez has gotten off the mark extremely quickly at this meet and here they team up here with early line favorite Beside Herself (2-1) who has several things to like.

For openers, she broke maiden on the SoFla lawn. Check it: Gulfstream Park, JAN 30, Race 6 in the homepage video section.

Since then, she has been competitive in graded company and gets significant class relief in this spot.

Beside Herself gets several pounds from her elders–she’s beaten older before–and is the speed of the speed, breaking from the pole.

It appears Pletcher has her set for best, given a series of sharp drills at her Palm Beach Downs base and goes minus blinkers here, a 25% scenario for this barn.

We’re taking Beside Herself to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing trifectas first and second with sharp Treasure of War (15-1), well connected Flying Fortress (7-2), and strong-finishing Lisheen (4-1)
