Horses to Watch

Horses to Watch is a new and regular feature of HorseRacingFLA.  We have two types of watches.

  1. A horse that is running today at a Florida track. We will leave it to you to decide whether and how to include the horse in your bets. We will follow up with results and our analysis of what went right or wrong.
  2. A horse that ran well in a recent race, in some cases despite a troubled trip, and  might be worth a wager in its next race.

Race 4 – MADE in DETROIT– Was bumped and steadied between rivals in the chute, then raced inside off
the pace. The five-year- old gelding was steadied again on the far turn and shuffled back to last, and
managed to check in eighth in a field of ten. The bettors sent him off as a 2 to 1 favorite with $16,000
claiming company, figures to be a contender with better racing luck.
Race 7 – LUNA’S KEY –  A shipper from Cameraro Race Track in Puerto Rico finished third in her first try in
Tampa. She was roughed at the start and raced in next-to- last place, saving ground on the rail entering
the stretch. The filly was then forced to alter course upon lacking room at the 1/8 pole. Her record is 8
wins from 20 starts and she is worthy of consideration next time out.
