The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


HALLANDALE BEACH, FL, June 8, 2023 – As this is written, Friday’s race card is in question and there’s no guarantee that the Belmont Stakes wouldn’t be postponed.

In this environment, rolling the dice–literally and figuratively–on a borderline scenario could prove disastrous in both the short and long term. We are hopeful and keeping a good thought for all our family and friends in the Northeast.

  1. 9th race- Pretty Mischievous (2-1) Oaks winner is second favorite to a horse that’s never been the distance. Play in Doubles with Angel of Empire, National Treasure, Hit Show and Tapit Trice.

    11th race- Sarah Harper(6-1) best bet, box with Bubble Rock.

    Let’s go get the bad guys, Vin

  2. Vin, surprised by the early line myself with KY Oaks winner as second choice. Using her and the speedy Munny’s in multi-wagers. A safe and speedy journey to all runners this weekend…
