    Re: Horse Racing Random Random

    Tiz the Dude will run in today's night cap at Gulfstream Park West. 7.5 furlongs, and assuming rain doesn't hit between now and then, he'll FINALLY get to run on the turf. Other than the lower level purse money, this is precisely where we've been trying to position him all along. Edgard Zayas will be on board. Claiming price is $25000. He is the second choice on the morning line at 7/2. That's probably about right.

    Just FYI, that didn't go well at all, LOL! Tiz the Dude broke better than he did in his first two starts, which was very encouraging. Then on the first turn, he got pushed out a bit by the 2 horse, recovered, lost ground going into the second turn, gained ground on the second turn, then completely blew the second turn, and then Edgard gave up in the stretch (with good reason). The fact it started to pour rain right before the race probably didn't help, but they were all affected by that--so no excuse.

    So, either:

    1) He doesn't really like turf as much as we thought (his early works certainly suggested so)
    2) He doesn't like two turns
    3) He needs more time to adapt to turf/two turns
    4) He's really meant to be a dirt sprinter, which would be far more consistent with his pedigree

    Needless to say, we're confused.

    Here's the race:

    Re: Horse Racing Random Random

    Is it too early to start talking about the 2021 Kentucky Derby? Because this happened in the second race today at Del Mar. It was a $57K maiden special weight race (horses not available to be claimed). Life is Good is a 2-year-old making his debut.



    Life is Good is trained by Baffert, owned by WinStar, and bred by Gary and Mary West. He was purchased as a yearling for $525K. Like Authentic, he is a son of Into Mischief, but Life is Good is out of a Distorted Humor mare that was winless in five starts (she finished second once and third three times, but she always put up respectable speed figures).

    Life is Good put up an Equibase speed figure of 107--IN HIS DEBUT.

    Amie, you'll like this. Mike Smith never had a reason to go to the whip. He barely pressured the back of the neck in the stretch.

    Well. COVID outbreak in the jockeys room at Parx in Bensalem, PA north of Philadelphia, including leading rider there, Mychel Sanchez. No specifics on how many. Meanwhile, unlike decisions made by officials at Mahoning Valley, Charles Town, and Golden Gate, racing at Parx continues.

    Parx is about 15-20 minutes from me, just one exit up the Turnpike. I'd hazard a guess that part of the reason the racing is continuing is because this is not remotely a story around here. I get news alerts from local CBS, ABC, and NBC and haven't heard a peep about this. We've got so much going on, that as long as they can stay under the radar, they can likely keep racing. The moment one local news outlet picks up on it, game over. But since I can't find a single local story on this, I'd say they are in the clear.

    In other news, my filly, Bold Article, decimated the field in the third race at Churchill today. It was on dirt, 1 1/16 miles, $30K claiming against other winners... The Equibase chart states she won by 8 lengths. She also went gate to wire.

    She was NOT claimed. But the horse that finished fourth was claimed.

    https://www.equibase.com/premium/cha...20&cy=USA&rn=3

    Edit: Equibase put her preliminary speed figure at 70. That's her best yet by 2 points (over her previous win at Churchill at 6 furlongs) and an improvement of 11 points over her previous speed figure.
