Superfecta Sunday Turf in 'Orleans

The last Sunday in March is another Superfecta Sunday.  We take a peek at the last race on the last day of the Fair Grounds meet.

Fair Grounds Race Course Race 12 {1 1/2 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Optional Claiming}
A turf ready group of nine older horses will take to the grass in the last race of the meet.  There is absolutely no speed in this one.  A couple have been forwardly placed in previous races and may by default pick up the pace here.  This will be a difficult one in which to put together a solid 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.  But we must give it a try.

#4 Wando Venture (Borel / Duhon) looks best able to move forward having already gone this distance.  He holds the third highest speed at the distance which demonstrates he can make a go of it.  His last two outings have been decent and he holds a 50% in the money record over the Turf.  He might end up forwardly placed.

#6 Tragic Magic (Graham / R. Scherer) will compete well with this group holding the second highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and two superb peaking workouts. Like many in here he is stretching out to this distance for the first time and has a tracking run style.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Waystogeaux (J. Gomez / Gomez) is a veteran 10 year old Turfer that takes very well to this distance holding a 100% in the money record in three attempts.  He is coming off a couple of o.k. last out races, but may relish this distance over the green.  He is another that likes to track and close.

#1 Wajir On Me (Mena / Hawley) is another veteran Turfer with the fourth highest last out speed number, the highest speed number at the distance, and one stout workout.  He might be able to close well into whatever pace is on.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#4 Wando Venture  +  #6 Tragic Magic  +  #5 Waystogeaux  +  #1 Wajir On Me.
