The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

GOING GULFSTREAM – JUN 2

The short comment says “second best,” but you look at the replay of Valiant Avenger’s (7-2) last effort and you tell me: Gulfstream Park, APR 30, Race 2.

Whatever you decide, it’s all there in today’s seventh from Hallandale.

As the race was run, we think the 3-year-old gray colt was best and he seems well spotted here going a mile on turf.

And if the rainy season strikes, it will be no harm no foul. He continued on his upward trajectory–has never taken a back step in a four race career and appears poised for another forward move.

Now consider that Ralph Hicks has been been on a 25% roll the last three months and is profitable for a career when giving Emisael Jaramillo and leg up.

This race is competitive on paper, thus assuring fair odds ante post. We’ taking Valiant Avenger to win at 5-2 or greater and a quinella with top contender Night Jumper (3-1), which owns synth pedigree should race be re-scheduled this rainy season..
