#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.

Hello Midnight1, putting our political differences aside I like Madison's Luna chances. I'm putting Sporting Chance and Mask on top with National Flag, Madison's Luna, Restoring Rope and Madison's Luna underneath for triples.

Stan..Mississippi had the lead for a short time in the Florida Derby before Audible ran him down. I agree

vet.. BOL to u. It will be a fun day.

If the track comes up wet tomorrow, Luna's Tapit breeding should make him feel right at home.

Crazy....it's exciting when you've waited for a colt to run, you expect him to run a big race but there's always the chance you could be totally wrong . On big racing days some of these young fillies/colts can become easily distracted by the crowd, get washed out & leave their race in the stable. When they do win it's  a rush that's hard to explain.
