The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Today’s finale is a maiden-allowances for 3-year-old turf fillies showcasing the kind of pedigrees one comes to expect at this meet.

But trips on the turf are usually a thing and that brings us to Soviet Excess (7-2) making her second lifetime start.

She was entered in a sprint and was out-quicked in there when she broke tardily from mid-gate. After that she rushed up into contention whule racing greenly late, swapping leads repeatedly in deep atretch.

Today she stretches out with an appropriate pedigree and assuming a clean break, she’ll be in this one throughout. Check out her run at Gulfstream Park, JAN 8, Race 1 and make your assessment. We saw enough.

Taking Soviet Excess to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with uncoupled mate, well-bred Nonna’s Tiramisu (4-1) and Moral Turpitude (10-1), troubled in both grass starts and switches to Jose Ortiz.
