With weather remaining problematic in the area, Saturday’s Laurel feature may or may not be rescheduled to the main track. Hence, we widened our focus to horses than may be effective on either surface.
Padrino’s Heart (3-1) nicely fits that bill.
After an even try at Delaware Park going six furlongs last out, he returns to his best distance at which he’s run well on turf and dirt.
Suiting the race shape nicely and drawn on the rail with tactical speed with Victor Rosales for Gary Capuano, a barn that has come alive of late and recently won with a horse shipping back into Laurel Park.
Taking Padrino’s Heart at early line odds or greater and key-boxing exactas [on turf] with Cathal Lynch’s live shipper Francatelli (5-2) and fast working Xmasinthecity (5-1).
