The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Friday’s featured optional allowances at 5-1/2 furlong on Tapeta Track is as open as races get. We could suggest any of the eight entrants, make the case, and feel good about the assessment.

But the problem is that we still don’t know with certitude so what amounts to a selection is a best-guess scenario.

Having written that, we are reaching out for the Kelly Breen trainee Exchange Day (5-1).

Claimed for $20,000 at Monmouth three back, the gelded 5-year-old makes his return to synth following two turf starts.

He returns to the surface over which he met faster and better last winter and spring after winning his Monmouth finale on grass. Further, he’s found a likely spot as he’s back with Florida-breds as well.

We’re taking Exchange Rate to win, 5-1 minimum, and key-boxing exotics with speedy, fast-working Startonahighnote (3-1), Bella Future (5-1) for Laura Cazerez, profitable in LAY-2 scenarios, and classy Commandant (6-1), 2-for-2 at today’s trip.
