Race 8: Conquest Panthera (#5)
Was stymied down inside in the stretch in his last sprint race in Keeneland’s Woodford.
Ran well enough to win a race at this level when beating an in-form Dowse’s Beach in the Play the King.
Should get an honest pace to close into with speeds like Spring to the Sky, Dowse’s Beach, and Bucchero in the mix.
