Anarchist: Tight Down Inside Yet Only Beaten By a Half and Bred For 2 Turns

Four year old colt for Doug O’Neill, who had not been to the post since July of last year at Ellis Park, tried the first allowance condition on Sunday at six and a half on the main. Off at 9/2 in a field of six after two late scratches, he broke OK under Vasquez and was third down the back side three lengths off the pace. He looked loaded at the ¼ pole, but was in tight down on the inside and never could quite find a seam to sneak through. One finally opened late but the race was over, yet he was only beaten a half at the wire. This lightly run son of Distorted Humor should have no trouble knocking out this condition and he is bred to get two turns as well.

Generally horses that are on the Horses To Watch list ran into unexpected trouble, bad luck, and/or didn’t run the race we believe Anarchist was cabable of.  We expected that if Anarchist gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Anarchist performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Anarchist last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Anarchist next start.  If Anarchist appears to have earned higher performance figures in the last race when running into trouble  as compared to the rest of the field’s expected perfomance in the upcoming race than there is a good chance that Anarchist will dominate the race.

Helpful Tip:  So that it’s easy for you to compare a horse’s past performance, Today’s Racing Digest’s Performance Figures for upcoming races are based on how we expect the horse to perform in that race regardless of any changes in race conditions.  Learn More:
