arcadia race 7
8/1 ml. 0.75 units. speed, pace, jock. please don't play this if you are searching for more certainty. this is swinging for the fences here looks like an attempt to see if he can get back to going around two turns and maybe (and I mean maybe) train up to the Santa Anita Handicap.
as a 3YO this guy ran ok around two turns and this is 8.5F today but a G2 nonetheless. i am tossing the last one I think they brought him back too quick with his recency off that huge fig he ran trying to snatch that G3 over in Inglewood. he's gotten a break since and is working like a beast in the morning. i hope Raffy can get him to relax and not open up an eight length lead on the backside and save something for the stretch. raffy had him two back he was a monster running a 109 fig over 7F on the cushion track.
i have questions about all of the others so I am going with value on the tote and the opportunity for improvement in overall form.
far, far, far from a sure thing here boys. tote action would raise my level of confidence in this scenario.
