As far as choosing Highlight Horses is concerned, it doesn’t get much easier than Daddy’s Duo in race six. That is not to declare she’s a lock. She is no such thing. But an awful lot of our data points right at her.
She gets the top spotlight figure in the field (a 68) by a margin of eight points.
She gets the top Early Pace rating in the field, a 79.
She’s in a tie for the top Late Pace rating in the field, a 38. (This field contains precious little in the way of Late Pace, obviously.)
Pace Projector shows her in a deadheat for the lead at the opening quarter.
She has the best last-out speed figure in the race by a margin of 12 points.
Of all the horses who were competitive or even semi-competitive in their last race, she exits the strongest race based on our Race Ratings–a race rated 73.
Her Breeding Rating for today’s dirt sprint (84) is four points higher than it was for the synthetic sprints she is exiting.
Her trainer, Keith Desormeaux, gets a rating of 82 with claimers down in class and a rating of 88 with comparable spacing between starts.
