The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

GOING GULFSTREAM – JAN 28

I seldom throw very deep in this daily feature but you know, if you have a hunch you should bet a bunch–or at least a little.

Now Thethrillofvictory (30-1) is not as fast as half this field, nor does he match up on company lines, owning two wins at the $16K claiming level.

But those were his most recent starts, and he was claimed each time, going first time for Peter Walder here.

The favorite Conglomerate (3-1) was beaten two lengths at the $100K level and previously won a Canadian Grade 3.

Thethrillofvictory is a newly turned 4-year-old and showed that he has a true affinity for Tapeta, whatever the level.

Walder is 20% effective first time off the claim and this being a starter handicap, his new horse gets in her with 116 pounds; Conglomerate is spotting him 11 pounds beneath a steadying 127.

The clincher is that he is one a forward line and continued improvement puts him in the game with his classy rivals.

We’re taking Thethrillofvictory at 15-1 or greater, and an exacta box with the highweight.
