The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


With untoward weather forecast for Friday and Saturday, we stayed on the main track with the feature in Hallandale, an optional-allowances for filly sprinters going 6 furlongs.

It’s understandable that Sin for a Season would be favored, having taken both lifetime starts on this strip. Remarkably, her second score came following a 415 day absence.

Of course, she moved forward from 2 to 4, earning a competitive figure, and that’s the rub. Now coming back in a month, a regression is likely, and at a short price …

A look at our preference: Mama Maria (4-1) moved forward when turned back into a sprint by Jose D’Angelo–going short is her best game.

Feeling he can get more from this filly coming back in 26 days, D’Angelo adds blinkers, a significantly profitable 35% when applying the hood. It will be to Edgar Perez to overcome his rail draw at this trip.

Taking Mama Maria to win at 5-2 or greater and exacta key-boxing with the favorite and price shot Sophia’s Storm (15-1), the fast working Horse for Course.
