We've got two Radar Horses to look out for this week. One is an 8-5 morning-line favorite, the other is pegged 6-1, but with a great chance to beat her rivals to the wire. Let's have a look at their profiles:
KODIAK BROWN — Monday, October 4th, 2021 @ Finger Lakes, Race 2.
Post Time is 1:39 PM ET.
Radar Insight: KODIAK BROWN improved nicely in his last race and should be better in the third start after a layoff.
Epona Racing Stable and Toga Party Racing's KODIAK BROWN is 8-5 on the morning-line and breaks from post position three at this $5k Claiming spot for three-year-olds and upward traveling 1 mile 70 yards. He'll be ridden by John R Davila Jr., who piloted his last race where he finished a decent second at this same trip.
As our Radar Insight suggests, KODIAK BROWN should be better in his third start off a layoff. He was much closer to the pace last time out and ran one of his highest speed figures, despite finishing second as the favorite. The winner of that race, KINGFISH, went on to win his next start, which flatters KODIAK BROWN all the more; he's battling with good horses!
Trainer Chris Englehart converts at a solid 29% with horses who were beaten favorites last time out.
In preparation for this start, KODIAK BROWN worked 4F at Finger Lakers on September 28th, going :49 even, as the 11th fastest of 25 workouts at that distance.
KANFU — Monday, October 4th, 2021 @ Indiana Grand, Race 7.
Post Time is 12:55 PM ET.
Radar Insight: KANFU won her last with incredibile fractions improvements. The same race equals the same result.
Connie and Richard Snyder, and Michael J. Wern's KANFU is 6-1 on the morning-line, and breaks from the seven hole for trainer Anthony Granitz. She competes in this $18k Optional Claiming race for Fillies and Mares, three-year-olds and upward.
KANFU, the four-year-old daughter of CAN THE MAN, has won two races in a row, and as our Radar Insight points out, ran an incredibly-improved race in her last start. She settled in the pocket before making a four-wide bid for the lead, and kicked clear after taking command. A serious horse-for-the-course, she touts an 8: 3-2-1 record at this Indiana Grand race track. She loves the 1 mile distance, as she's got 3 wins and 2 seconds from 7 tries. Jockey Sanjur Santo gets onboard for the first time.
