The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TAMPA BAY TODAY JUN 17

Hoping today’s fourth race remains on turf, our preferred Tampa surface. The forecast is for fair skies as it was for Monday’s program but despite the fact that the sun was shining, the races were rescheduled after running one.

Hoping all is well with the course today because this mid-range maiden claimer offers a potential for value with third-tine starter Passionfortreasure (5-1) who’s making a class rise despite a recent defeat at a lower level.

But we like the sign of confidence from the barn she showed much improved speed in her second start–perhaps a little too keen following a pace duel. She paid for those efforts late as the winner ran right by but she maintained daylight on the show finisher.

Brenda McCarthy stays efficient when she raises her horse in class, Scott Spieth takes the re-ride and the filly should be more settled in start three. She has upside potential on this surface and a repeat of her last should do here.

Check out the Tampa Bay Today Video: RACE 3 on MAY 20. Will take fair odds of 3-1 or greater, box the exacta with the sharp, fast favorite Stoney’s Monkey (5-2) and will add Enough Kisses (10-1), pole position plus Jose Ferrer, to the super-exotics mix.

  1. For a mere four dimes more which will upset maybe a few, adding Sunnymere into the I-Man SF mix for 3rd and 4th with your pole position kisses. Going with the old Irish saying in this go. There are but three things to have in plenty, Sunshine, Wisdom, and Generosity. For the cost of forty cents I’ll add some sunshine to todays FRA. Riders Up.

    P.S. Sending an email to my good friend what’s his name, the man out west without a real name. Mr. Ed? I’ll go with “what’s his name less confrontational. To much of that going around already.

  2. The Sun Will Be Out Tomorrow, Bet Your Bottom Dollar…….
    So the song goes any hoot.
    On the realist side, with the Fed printing money like they do of late,
    Just what does a dollar really buy you any longer?
    A share or two of Hertz?
    Just look at the price of a “five cent” Newsday today.
    Just saying….I ain’t quittin’ yet.
    Who do you like in the next John Boy.

  3. One and done works for me John. I wasn’t really pressing for a second round. Now if you were talking libations, I suspect Wendell and I both might arrive at your door. Many of the HRI faithful for that matter.

    Looking forward to your Saturday give and take. Indulto’s selections as well. Thanks in advance for your consistent yeoman’s effort and support. Peace Out.
