Race 5: #11 Purple Dream 8-1
It looks like there are a lot of runners that want to be near the front end in this one and with today’s race being six and a half furlongs, Purple Dream is the one I want coming from the back of the pack.
He’s a horse that clearly loves Turfway as he’s yet to miss the exacta in three starts, and this jockey/trainer combo win at a high clip. He’s a tad light on figures, but I’m hoping a quick pace and that extra half furlong can mitigate the gap. With his outside draw, expect to him to make that wide sweeping move that’s been so successful at this meet.
