Furlong Friday with the Youngsters

On the day after Thanksgiving lets make it a double. Woodbine has re-scheduled the Kennedy Road Stakes--G2 for today. See the post below this one for our picks.

Today we also take in the view down in sunny, splendid New Orleans. On this Furlong Friday we look at a fantastic sprint for the youngsters.

Fair Grounds Race 8 {6 Furlongs~2 year-old~Allowance Optional Claiming}

A great group of eight youngsters will go to the gate in this featured sprint race. There is plenty of speed to keep the pace sizzling. Speed numbers are close which should yield a contested race. A number in here are just getting their racing career started as they make their second start. It should be a terrific race.

#2 Divine Kaleb (McMahon / Broberg) might have the advantage having already started a good foundation with six starts under his saddle. He holds the third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two superb workouts. He has tactical speed which should benefit him greatly.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#3 Honor River (Torres / Casse) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three power workouts. This lad comes down from the great white North out of a higher level race. He should be tracking the pace closely.

#6 Warrior's Kid (Pedroza / Heitzmann) should contend with a couple of good last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and one solid workout. He should be tracking the pace and make his move going into the stretch. He has hit the board in all four of his starts including twice at this distance.

#7 Carson Kan (Graham / Mason) should be in the mix with the second highest speed number over the dirt. He is coming out of a slightly longer sprint at the super competitive Keeneland meet and has put in two sound workouts. He should be traveling in the second pack of runners ready to spring into the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta
