The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


The Gulfstream feature on Saturday is an optional allowances going one mile on the main track and it would appear that with two entrants, trainer Peter Walder has this one locked up.

Post time odds notwithstanding, it’s a difficult call between Big Daddy Dave (2-1) a daylight winner, a career at this trip last out, albeit in sloppy footing.

And while it seems obvious that Slim Slow Slider (9-2) might be in here to set the pace table for his mate after a tower-over-this-field top figure score seven days ago, two stats belie that thinking:

‘Slim owns two wins at today’s trip, so he can handle the stretch-out from 6-1/2 furlongs and two, Walder is a lofty 25% profitable when he runners go routing off two straight sprints.

Given that, and the price discrepancy, we’re taking Slim Slow Slider to win at 3-1 or greater.

Further, we’re boxing the exacta with his mate and U.S. debuting Spirit of Light for Rohan Crichton (5-1) a profitable 21% adding first-Lasix and a money-making 26% with returnees off 90-days + layoffs.
