Check out my Race 8 analysis for 3-15-24 below.  

SA 8 (Str-Alw-50k, 8T)
Primary – #1 TARANTINO, #7 Mubtadaa
Secondary – #2 Goldeneye, #6 Classic Creation

Wagers: #1 to win, Exacta box 1-7, Trifecta 1-7/1-2-6-7/1-2-6-7

Comments: #1 Tarantino (5-1) rallied for the show in an OC-50k/1x dirt sprint Feb. 15 and Glatt claimed him that day. The competent turf router gets the services of recently hot rider Hernandez, and he is 2-for-2 with this barn recently. This one has not found the winner’s circle since December 2020. #7 Mubtadaa (3-1) fired trifecta shots in his last six starts. He moved to the Cerin barn and won 2 of his last 4 local turf sprints. He stretches out after attending the pace and missing by a neck at 6T March 1. Dettori got acquainted with him last time and he might be the one to catch. #2 Goldeneye (4-1) is in good form for Eurton. He won by a nose at this course/distance under Friday’s rider Rosario Jan. 7, and threw his head at the start, lacked running room in the stretch, and completed the exacta in a 9T affair under Hernandez Feb. 17. The sharp early-pressing gelding is back at his winning distance. #6 Classic Creation (8-1) finished a length behind Goldeneye last time. He moved up in the stretch but lost some of his steam late and just held the show by a neck at 9T that day. He has struck twice at one mile and can show a bit more in his third start after a layoff.
