Fair Grounds

Race 8: An allowance race on turf. Top choice is No. 7 Artie’s Rumor. This gelding has been a steady performer and we especially like the cutback in distance. Although it’s a small sample size, the jockey/trainer win percentage has been stellar. No. 6 Secretary at War will be the likely favorite after the scratch of the 1 horse. His sheet numbers at Churchill were solid. Speaking of gelding, No. 11 Speed Franco runs for the first time without two extra pieces of “baggage.” That may help lighten his load.
