5th at Keeneland Today, Something Amiss with Amoss?
Finally, praise for a modern day trainer instead of criticism. Mr. Amoss starts 3yo filly Keyana Washington at 3:19pm today at Keeneland against older mares and fillies in a 6F affair for a $30k tag. She is unraced, but check out this hyper-aggressive worktab between the polytrack at KEE and the dirt at FG:
April 7th – 6f/1:15
Mar 29th – 5F/1:01
Mar 11th – 6F/1:12
Mar 4th – 6F/1:14
Feb 11th – 5F/1:00
Jan 28th – 1m/1:44 (a mile, is this a typo?)
-6 other works from 5-6F before this, some bullets, some slow pokes.
M/L is 4-1, but this homebred daughter of Seeking The Gold looks to be the class of this group and will undoubtedly take some late action. It’s rare I have time to pick these out before the race, as evidenced by my upcoming piece on Lasix/Bute free Tackleberry, so this should be interesting to watch in person…off to Keeneland I go.
Anecdotally, I am not aware of Amoss being anything other than a typical modern day conditioner, for you horsemen and women out there, why would a trainer who hangs his hat on 4F works suddenly do this much with a nicely bred filly before her first outing?
