The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

PUTTING FAITH IN PEDIGREE

Well you don’t see this very often; a preliminary allowances for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up going a mile and an eighth with none of the entrants having any experience at the trip.

That leaves us with pedigree, condition and performance figures. And on the Thoro-Graph scale half of the six entrants have a look-in here by virtue of the best figures or favorable forward patterns.

Of those we trust Lemon Chill (5-2) most. She has all the pedigree one would hope for going long, by a Belmont winner from a Belmont winning mare.

She exits a live race, and is in the capable hands of Donnie Von Hemel and Joe Rocco Jr., 2-for-6 recently when teaming up. Not as fast as two of her rivals, she’s poised to move forward for a barn that’s currently 23% with all runners.

Taking Lemon Chill to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with Final Cut (3-1) and Saracosa (2-1).
