The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


The place you lose it is the place you get it back, as old school racetrackers say. Well, if that’s true, we’re going back to Keeneland and see if we could get an honest run for our money.

On the class drop, Daddy Is A legend (4-5) is a deserving credit. Highly competitive in top graded company into an allowance group makes her a deserving favorite and most probable winner.

Since she’s coming back form a 200-day layup, we’re going to try to beat her with Limari (7-2) in the hopes that the favorite is not wound tightly and that Brad Cox has taken time from his Breeders’ Cup preparations to give this filly an excellent chance to upset.

Her figures on very competitive on the Thoro-Graph scale, she has run well over the local ground and with Julien Leparoux, having a sensational meet, is an indication that Limari is live.

Taking Limari to win at 5-2 or greater and key boxing exactas with Daddy Is a Legend and the sharp, class rising Stave (15-1).

YESTERDAY: A disgraceful performance by both Hunka Burning Love and her partner, Brian Hernandez, who never showed interest in getting his charge into the race–very wide throughout and handled in very sanitary fashion. Check the replay of the 6-1/2 furlong sprint feature and decide for yourself.

  1. Hope that’s a case of like minds, not desperate gamblers. I miss your posts, a race you like with your figs, or your figs for the race I choose. Think the readers would enjoy and learn from it.

    We’re horseplayers; we all we got!

  3. Now that’s what I’m talking about, T! Good job!

    Yeah, I know the fave will be tough but she’s been beaten when fresh before, and I’m hoping she needs this one.

    But that’s a big call you’ve given her; must respect…

    Will check out the Parkway horse later on, thanks again.

  4. BTW, interesting that you have my price-shot inclusion ranked second.

    Stave won’t be 15-1, but half that price looks real and may be worth a play. We’ll see what tale the tote tells.
