Superfecta Sunday down in New Orleans

We go into Superfecta Sunday capping off not only an exciting weekend of racing, but a great month of racing. More will undoubtedly come. Today we look at a highly competitive Turf route.

Fair Grounds Race Course Race 6 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~4 year-old Up~Allowance Optional Claiming}

A strong group of ten will take to the green in this full field Turf feature. There is enough speed to keep and honest pace. Speed numbers are relatively close. Most in here are grizzled Turf veterans. It should be a spectacular race. Our task is to link together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#11 Trend (Geroux / Stidham) should share favoritism with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one dynamite workout. He enjoys the Fair Grounds Turf course with a 50% in the money record. He should be tracking and closing efficiently.

#4 Purely Boy (Albarado / Maker) should be the other favorite with the highest last out speed number and three superb workouts. He is coming out of a stakes event prior to a very brief layoff. This guy should be fresh and ready to close.

#3 Cartoon (Reznikov / Vashchenko) could surprise with a continued improvement. This lad has landed in the money in all four of his races. He holds a couple of good last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and two solid workouts. Tracking the pace closely, he should get first jump on the leaders. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$1 SHOW.

#2 Candy Gran (Bridgmohan / McKeever) should contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three stout workouts. He will be stretching out to this distance and should be running just off the pace.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#11 Trend  +  #4 Purely Boy  +  #3 Cartoon  +  #2 Candy Gran.
