The Cornfather is taking the pony train back out west after yesterday’s poor effort in New York. He loves playing the quarter horses at Los Al and he’s got a thoroughbred that popped up in his play back stable today. He has no choice but to fire away.
Race 8: 1 Mile. F.Mdn 40k
Pony of the Day #4 Dr. Ann (8/1) – This is a great maiden betting race with 9 contenders that all have a shot to win. Dr. Ann has improved in each of her three lifetime starts and the Cornfather thinks she ran better than it looks on grass last time out. She was wide on the turns and couldn’t really show her best stuff that day. Switching back to the dirt today, she should get a perfect stalking trip in a race that will have a blistering pace. There are several runners stretching out from a sprint for the first time that will set the table for her. With many in here better on numbers, the Cornfather thinks we’ll get higher than 8/1 on her and he’ll key her in the exacta.
