Nick Shiambouros heads to Will Rogers Downs with two selections from the spring meeting...
"Castor has hit the ground running at the meeting with two winners from five starts"
Destiny's Love to take opener
Destiny's Love should get us off to a good start in the first race on the card.
This mare finished down the field behind Love to Learn in a $5k claimer at Remington Park. She flashed speed, before weakening out of contention at the entrance to the straight. This was not her true running as something was clearly amiss. She faced better in the past, and won at a higher level at Oaklawn Park last year. She makes her debut for Roger Engel who has a healthy 25% strike rate in claiming races. I recommend backing her at around 4.03/1.
Box Seat sitting pretty
Box Seat should go close in this interesting handicap.
This gelding beat Drop of Golden Sun in an allowance race over this course last week. She made a strong four wide move at the entrance to the straight, and powered home to win decisively. Trainer Boyd Castor stretches him out, and the talented Curtis Kimes rides back for connections. Castor has hit the ground running at the meeting with two winners from five starts. I think he has more to offer and a big run is expected. This is a competitive race so BSP is recommended.
