The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


With an eye on the weather forecast, we’re have an eye on the finish of today’s finale at Tampa Bay Downs, with a three-year-old filly of the same name.

In this seven furlong NL2 sprint, disregard the 1-for-13 lifetime of Eye on the Finish (3-1). Instead consider her 1-for-3 record at today’s trip and, given a claiming price that’s cut in half, a projection that she will be 2-for-14 at day’s end.

She’s coming off three straight routes, so conditioning is not in question. The only question as this is written is whether Tomas Mejia, unseated in a horrific spill on Monday, is well enough to take the call. For his sake, we pray.

Her seven furlong win, even at the maiden claiming level, was a dominating one. See for yourself on the Tampa Bay Today Video, MAR 4, RACE 3. She’ll handle this group with anything close to that effort.

We’re taking Eye on the Finish to win–5/2 would be fair–and we’re boxing an exacta with the fastest mare on performance figures here, Celestial Orb (7-2).
