Sumter: Best at a Mile While Prat Fits Him Well | Upcoming Race:Del Mar July 21, 2024

Three year old colt for Richard Mandella tried the Stormy Liberal stakes on Saturday at 5/8 on the turf for 3 and up. Off at 4/1 in an 8 horse field, he didn’t show much speed under Prat and was actually last at the half mile pole. Coming out of the 10 hole, he was wide as well and at least four wide turning into the stretch. He rallied on the outside, but was no match for the winner and was beaten three at the wire and was nosed out of second. He is best at a mile and will get plenty of those opportunities on the lawn up at Arcadia. He’s graded stakes placed and Prat fits him 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 Sumter was cabable of.  We expected that if Sumter gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Sumter performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Sumter last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Sumter next start.  If Sumter 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 Sumter 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:
