The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

GULFSTREAM, TAMPA, FAIR GROUNDS AQUEDUCT AND OAKLAWN PARK ALL COMPLETED NOW

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL, Saturday, December 11, 2021 — For lack of a better description, call this weekend at tracks in the East, Midwest and South, call it a seam in the graded stakes zone, Gulfstream Park notwithstanding, the lone holdout being the Grade 3 Mr. Prospector at seven furlongs.

But there stakes at all five venues and, in fact, there are seven at the Fair Grounds alone as the Big Easy celebrates its annual Louisiana Champions Day for all ages and sexes on dirt and turf.

The researching has begun and, as this is a live column, our projections will be posted after the process is complete.

We’re trying a new format, at the suggestion of several of the HRI Faithful who don’t know what was to be made out of our Early Line Value category, which was intended to point out runners that we thought the linemakers might have overlooked. So it’s gone, leaving us with the projected winner and how best to wager on the race.
