Tampa Bay Downs TamDby-G2 1ˆ Mile 3yo Saturday, March 11, 2017
Looks to be a good race, I'm kinda excited about this one, esp. Tapwrit, State of Honor, and Wild Shot. I know a lot are waiting to see what Beasly and No Dozing do, too:
1. Tale of Silence, Paco Lopez, Barclay Tagg
2. The Money Monster, Joel Rosario, Bill Mott
3. Basha, Emisael Jaramillo, Gilberto Zerpa
4. No Dozing, Daniel Centeno, Arnaud Delacour
5. Tapwrit, Jose Ortiz, Todd Pletcher
6. Beasley, Irad Ortiz Jr., Mark Hennig
7. Sonic Mule, John Velazquez, Todd Pletcher
8. State of Honor, Julien Leparoux, Mark Casse
9. Wild Shot, Robby Albarado, Rusty Arnold
10. Zion Valley, Huber Villa-Gomez, Kevin Rice
My two favorites are side by side. I wonder if Beasley will go for the lead, or try to stalk. I hope the latter. As for Taprit, I just want to see him find running room early in the stretch.
Beasley went toe-to-toe with Battalion Runner and fought on valiantly. Glad to see Sonic Mule get a chance in a Derby prep, I'll have to add him back to my list with a second or better.
2. Sonic Mule
3. State of Honor
For a longshot ITM play, Basha looks interesting to me. Looks like a 40-ish% ITM trainer, and some nice longish work at GP.
I'm going to toss No Dozing's last race and count on him to make some progress in the stretch this time like he did in the Remsen. His works at Tampa look good, every horse deserves a bad race. I suspect his odds will also drift up at post time, higher than 6-1, as the money will be on other stretch runners like Tapwrit.
Sentimentally, I want Wild Shot or State of Honor to win.
So there's my exacta and trifecta box. :)
Keying Wild shot in first and second with beasley state of honor and tapwrit. Keeping it cheap today!! Good luck all.
Won't be betting this one but I am interested to see how Sonic Mule does.Would also like to see No Dozing bounce back
Tapwrit continues to improve!
I was thrilled that State of Honor got 2nd, after running on the lead for the entire race. He was certainly fit.
IF they can get him to relax a bit and run off the pace....given present style won't work
Looked pretty easy.Timeform fig was 117,which wasn't too shabby but he was carrying 116 lb going 1and 1/16.I was far more impressed by Mastery(127 Timeform fig).If anyone else was training Tapwrit,he might peak my interest but Todd will find a way to screw this up.
