Ladies and gentlemen, be sure to take full advantage when two of our Radar Horses compete this week.
SOUPER CATCH from the Timothy C. Kreiser barn is scheduled to start on Friday May 14th at Penn National, Race 8. The seven-year-old son of BERNARDINI out of CRY AND CATCH ME by STREET CRY will represent owner Robert A. Derr.
SOUPER CATCH is a distance specialist with 44% wins in 9 starts. He is a "Horse for the course" with 67% wins in 6 starts. He exited a race where he achieved his second highest speed figure of his racing career, which is quite impressive considering he's already had 29 lifetime starts.
On Friday he'll break from post four at odds of 2-1. Jockey Angel R. Rodriguez is back in the irons, who is currently winning at 17% rate, which is 1% better than his previous year's.
Note that SOUPER CATCH ran his last six races at Penn National, and has not failed to hit the board each time. More impressively, he won four of those six races. At this spot, he'll be dropping in class, for a high percentage trainer to boot.
In preparation for this event, SOUPER CATCH worked three furlongs on April 23rd, going 35:10 as the second fastest of 9 works at that distance.
Post Time for SOUPER CATCH's race is 9:02 PM ET. (Penn National, Race 8)
The second horse that made our radar is SCOTTY WHO from the Sherry Armstrong barn. He'll represent owner Sherri Galvez when he races this Friday as well, but at a different location: SunRay Park, Race 10.
SCOTTY WHO is a distance specialist with 100% wins in 3 starts. He steps down in class from $7,500 to $5,000.
We last saw him at Zia Park back in December where he won at six furlongs by one and a half lengths. He achieved his highest speed figure of his 29-race career. Over his last four races, he has never missed the board.
When he tries for seven furlongs this Friday, the son of QUINTIN'S GOLD will break from the rail at odds of 3-1. Compared with the rest of the field, he's been running in tougher races, and faring better too.
He'll be piloted by Aldo Arboleda for the first time. Arboleda is currently winning at a 14% rate, the highest of his previous six years riding.
In preparation for this race, SCOTTY WHO worked five furlongs on May 7th, going 1:01.80, handily.
Post time for SCOTTY WHO's race is 5:51 PM MT. (SunRay Park, Race 10)
