Race Feedback

Overall I’m pretty pleased with Tavasco Road’s performance last night. It was a really tough field for the condition. Jockey Edgar Payeras told me that Tavasco was a little surprised with the quick turn do to cutting back in distance which isn’t uncommon for horses running at Los Alamitos for the first time.

Race Recap

Tavasco Road finished 4th in tonight’s Snowbound Superstar Stakes at Los Alamitos. He pretty much ran mid pack all race as he was unable to gain on the two leaders who wired the field. We figured it’d be a tough spot going in as it was tough competition from the Quarterhorse ranks but wanted to get a race into him as race options have not been favorable for some time. We’ll see how he comes out of the race and likely point to a claiming race within the first few weeks of the Santa Anita meet.
