Superfecta Sunday deep in the Heart of Texas

After a thrilling Kentucky Derby yesterday we take a look at a nice little maiden contest on this Superfecta Sunday.

Lone Star Park Race 3 {5 1/2 furlongs~3 year-old Up~Maiden Claiming}
A good field of hard knocking horses will sprint to the finish in this sweet Maiden Claiming race. There is enough forwardly placed types to maintain a steady pace. Speed figs are all fairly close among this group. Interestingly, there is one filly and one colt in the field. The rest are all geldings. Our task is to lasso a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#6 Funtobefast (Berry / Pish) is the filly that might have her way these boys. She holds the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two splendid peaking workouts. She is 100% in the money in her three career outings. This could be a sweet spot with her tracking capability.

#8 Analog Man (McMahon / Broberg) should challenge with a couple of o.k. last out performances. He holds the second highest speed number at this distance and has put in two credible workouts. Top flight connections say he is capable of better. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Wild Thought (Mora / Bustamante) should contend coming off a brief freshening. He was bumped hard in his last effort, but his previous outing is on par with this group here. This colt does hold the third highest speed number over a dirt surface. Comes up from Fair Grounds Race Course.

#9 Witts Zippy Doo (Arellano / Barton) should be coming into nice form with the fourth highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one peaking workout. This guy is coming out of a Turf race ready to hit the dirt in solid fashion.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#6 Funtobefast  +  #8 Analog Man  +  #5 Wild Thought  +  #9 Witts Zippy Doo.
