Cable Boss Race Overview & Best Bet 10/12
Cable Boss looks to bounce back in career start number three this Thursday following a lackluster effort on Aug. 26 at Horseshoe Indianapolis. Slated at 8-1 on the morning line, Cable Boss will break from post 1 in this maiden special weight going one mile and one-sixteenth over the Horseshoe turf course which is carded as the 7th race. Post time is 5:16 p.m. ET.
Your 3-year-old son of Quality Road appears to have taken a step forward in his recent breezes which our team has been on site for. We are looking forward to seeing if he can run back to a similar effort that he showed on debut. Trainer Brendan Walsh believes it’s a good spot for us and is optimistic about our chances.

When looking at the Daily Racing Form, it really is a wide-open field of 12 horses.
#2 Cairo’s Ghost (7/2): Has been dispatched as the morning-line favorite at odds of 7/2 but is not a standout by any means. His speed figures fit in this race and he will receive a class relief from the recent field he faced at Churchill where he finished third on Sep.16.
#3 Rodin (20-1): Son of Arrogate makes his debut around two turns which is never easy. The pedigree is there to handle it but history will tell you he will need a race. Trainer is only 5% first time out on the turf and 0% debuting over a mile or more.
#4 Channel Z (5-1): Was unable to break through even when facing maiden claiming competition at Horseshoe in five separate occurrences but does exit a career-best effort, running a 69 Beyer Speed Figure, at the maiden special weight level. Leaning to play against this one but if he can repeat the effort, he has to be considered a threat.
#5 Lyte Crude (10-1): Gulfstream Park invader has a handful of races which made him a player here and arguably the biggest danger despite his morning line. He does move into a barn which is winless this year from 84 starts and is an obvious concern. Still shouldn’t be overlooked.
#6 Great Barrier (30-1): Very dangerous connections but this one has shown nothing. The surface switch would need to be the answer and his pedigree suggests he would like it. His half-sibling Bubble Rock was a 2x graded stake winner on turf and competed in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.
#7 Saturday Long Legs (12-1): Best races have come at Belterra Park. Blinkers added on for the first time but this one appears too slow.
#8 Border Patrol (10-1): In a race that lacks pace, this one could get a favorable trip close to the front end. If he does that makes him interesting otherwise we would be more fearful of others.
#9 American Raider (8-1): Son of American Pharoah has to be considered simply based on the circuit switch. Did absolutely no running most recently off an eight-month layoff but as a 2-year-old was showed some ability.
#10 Presider (6-1): Hard to imagine the connections are just trying to the turf for the first time after six main track tries. Dam was a 3x time winner on turf and produced 3x turf stake winner Front Run the Fed (current earnings of $736k). Sire, Connect, only strikes at a 9% win rate on the turf but the female line currently suggests he may like the lawn.
#11 Guadalajara (15-1): Following four failed tries on the dirt, connections switch things up and try the turf. Dam has had nine runners on the turf thus far with zero winners. Looking elsewhere.
#12 Raven’s Nest (10-1): Failed to fire in his comeback race at Kentucky Downs but put in two okay efforts early on in his 3-year-old season. Not sure what to expect here.
