The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Today’s fifth race at Gulfstream to begin the race week is an interesting $50K claiming, a rare N2L given the price tag, that we’ve narrowed to two and either or both should represent fair odds.

Experienced (9-2) was simply not up to 11 furlongs in his last, even if he has enjoyed success in turf marathons past, and is well suited turning back at this level in 17 days with blinkers added given his recent conditioner.

The entrant that really intrigues as a potential price shot is Seven Bridges Road (8-1). Trainer Teresa Pompay wasted no time finding this spot, following a maiden breaker two back and starter company last out.

Boasting maturity shown in both recent starts at 4 for a barn that’s enjoying success recently, he is poised for a forward move with Junior Alvarado who should suit the Verrazano colt nicely.

We’re taking the value offered to win, betting Seven Bridges Road at 5-1 or greater, an exacta box with Experienced, and using well meant Nantasket Beach (2-1), a Kelly Breen three-back claim, to the exotics mix.
