Furlong Friday at Fair Grounds

A beautiful today is expected in New Orleans as we take a stab at Furlong Friday.

Fair Grounds Race 7 {6 Furlongs~4 year-old Up~Allowance Optional Claiming}

A good group of eight will go to the gate. There is enough pace to produce solid fractions. Speed numbers are very close giving this race a nice competitive feel to it. Most in here are coming out of allowance races with a modest freshening. It should be a quality event.

#4 Speightsong (C. Hernandez / Faucheaux) might have the advantage with the highest (three-way tie) last out speed number, and one good workout. He loves the dirt surface, the distance and the Fairgrounds track. This guy should be tracking the pace closely ready to spring forward into the stretch.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#2 Pulling G's (B. Hernandez / Howard) may go off as the favorite with the second highest last out speed number and four superb peaking workouts. He holds the highest speed number at the distance. This lad will be tracking the speedy pace and strike in the stretch.

#7 Luna de Loco (Geroux / Asmussen) should challenge sharing the highest last out speed number, working a two race progression, and putting in four sound peaking workouts. He is another that tracker looking for a swift pace. This guy should show some improvement.

#6 Cash Bonus (Flores / Amoss)  is coming out of a longer sprint in his last out effort where is ranks as fourth best (tie) among this group. He has put in a solid workout during the freshening. This guy may be closer to the pace seeking to grab a piece of the purse pie.
