The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Wednesday’s seventh and feature race in Hallandale is another one of those high class allowances that would pass as an added money event elsewhere.

Rest assured, it is a preliminary allowances test but the conditions might as well read “for aspiring states winners.”

Only seven have entered but a strong case can be made for four of these fillies and mares, mostly newly minted four year olds.

The attraction for us is the the potential for value because of our charge gets home and beats a Chad Browns and Todd Pletcher runner in the process, fair odds will be the result.

In fact, Todd’s Classy Edition (7-2), making her first start in nine months, has already won two stakes, albeit restricted to New York breds, but was second in her lone Hallandale appearance, the G2 Davona Dale, this spring behind the streaking Kathleen O at today’s trip, Luis Saez gets the call.

Chad’s filly, Signal From Noise (5-2), has had two lifetime starts, both at today’s trip, and on the Thoro-Graph scale has run faster than her two main rivals here. If the connections of Klaravich Stable and Irad Ortiz jr. sound familiar–well, they should. She has been working strongly at her Payson Park base.

However, we think that Olga Isabel (7-2) will slip between the parimutuel cracks for Gustavo Delgado with Junio Alvarado in the boot.

The daughter of Tiznow has handled hot pace pressure going shorter, finishing first twice in four career starts, she is well drawn outside, and her best run came at this trip vs. a full field of three year olds at Churchill on Derby weekend.

Check out her effort there in the second race, May 6. We think you’ll be convinced she’s the right play here.

Taking Olga Isabel to win at 7-2 or greater and key boxing exactas with the Todd and Chad fillies. Trifecta fans could add Truancy (3-1 to their mix.
