The Kentucky circuit has shifted its tack to Florence; home of Turfway Park. Once upon a time, Latonia Race Course in 1959, to the newly built and under-construction Chruchill Downs owned Turfway. – The paddock is perfectly manicured ready to saddle, the new Tapeta track surface is getting rave reviews, but the new building won’t be ready until the summer of 2022. – Trust me, the wait will be worth it. – In the meantime, racing continues, and here are a few free selections to whet your whistle for more action!



#6 – Junior Bug = Shipping in from Hawthorne in Chicago and making a turf to synthetic switch. This is his 2nd off claim run and trainer Brittany Vanden Berg wins 52%. He makes a drop-in class and should skip right over the plush course with ease. Use with #7 – Randello and #10 – Illbootengotty.


Race #2

#5 – Taranta = She drops down three class levels for trainer Eric Reed and Sonny Leon who win 24% as a team and has plenty of back class facing tougher. Reed knows how to spot his horses well and Leon finishes off the deal.



#4 – Inthemidstofbiz = She has tons of speed and if left alone can turn out the lights. Ships in from CD as a beaten favorite and trainer Cipriano Contreras wins 19% looking for payback.


Race #4 

#12 – Factorire = Mark Casse and Chris Landeros team up as she makes the turf to synthetic move. The barn wins 21% with claimers and rolls back two races and you’ll see she enjoyed the synthetic surface in Cananda. Must overcome the post, but dangerous none the same.



#1 – Miss McBride = 2nd time off the layoff and draws the rail for Dale Romans. Joe Talamo gets the call and I’m looking for speed into the first turn calling the shots on the class drop.



#2 – Devilly = Takes a big plunge in class for Eddie Kenneally and Joe Talamo. Been off for 46 days and goes from mdn sp wt to mdn claiming where they score 18% a winner.


Red-hot action is on tap in Florence, Kentucky as the biggest names in racing will be stabled there all meet. So, sit back, grab your E-Z Win Forms, and prepare to watch and wager on the best of winter racing in Kentucky. – Best of luck from your friends at Winning Ponies!
