#7 Madison's Luna
After winning the
Hutcheson @ Gulfstream, trainer Philip Bauer said that he was planning to run
on the Derby card. So I've I've been waiting for this one to race again. If you
get a chance take a look at this colt's 2 career races.
He won @ Tampa Bay at
first asking going 6.5 f in a 28k Maiden Claimer. Cheap right? Nice win but
nothing special. Tampa is a tiring track much like the old Calder strip in a
couple of ways.
But take a look at his
win in the Hutcheson going 6 furlongs. He made a huge move, won by 5 but it
could have been much more.
Leparoux jumps off him to ride #5 Mississippi & I don't blame
him. But I have no problem with Florent Geroux hopping aboard.
He's a beautiful looking
roan out of Tapit & the ML is 5-1 which is about what he went off in his 2
wins. Along with Mississippi, others like #8 Mask & #1 National Flag will
take a lot of action.
With his sire being
Tapit, I believe he will like the mile distance. He raced a little green in his
recent win like Tapit babies can do but there's a ton of talent here I believe.
We'll see Saturday.
