With a forecast for sunshine, we’ll return to the turf course in Monday’s seventh, a $16,000 claimer at the N3L level and this appears to be a good spot for gelded four year old Geography (5-1).
Not only does the chestnut make his second start for trainer Jorge Delgado but he has continued to move forward incrementally, returning with good spacing and attracting local turf ace, Pablo Morales.
Further, in his first start for the new barn he could have had better circumstances during the stretch run, still making up ground while between runners. See if you agree; check the Tampa Bay Today Video from MAY 15, RACE 8.
With a mini-turn-back to 8 furlongs and an inside position, he should sit inside with cover and kick when Pablo says go. Taking Geography to win at 3-1 or greater, boxing an exacta with class dropper Juan Pablo (2-1) and adding price shot Vintner (10-1) to the exotics mix.
