Race 5 is an $80,000 event covering 7 furlongs on the dirt. Howe Street and Efficiency should be involved for the win.

Howe Street is making his debut and is expected to show up well on Sunday. The colt hasn’t made an appearance so far, but this looks like a good spot.

His workouts have been promising and a solid first-run is expected for the Jorge Abreu trainee. However, Efficiency will provide a big challenge in this one.

Efficiency could be too tough for this field. The Chad Brown trainee is expected to do well and ultimately appear in stakes races.

He’s a $290,000 purchase and has been running well in workouts. Efficiency is coming off his best workout thus far, with a time of 48.06 seconds at 4 furlongs on March 11.

Three of his previous four workouts have been clocked under 50 seconds on the dirt. Under his current form, the gelding is going to be good in his debut.

The Bet

Race 9 – Haynesfield Stakes

+3000 (30/1)
(2) Water’s Edge
+450 (9/2)
(3) My Boy Tate

The $100,000 Haynesfield Stakes is the co-feature stakes race in the US on Sunday. Lobsta and My Boy Tate are in good form going into this one.

It’s hard to ignore Lobsta in this one. His form suggests that he’s going to be a competitive horse on Sunday. The biggest challenger for Lobsta has to be My Boy Tate.

My Boy Tate is 11 for 31 is 1st, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 2nd in his previous four attempts. In his latest outing, he placed 2nd behind Wudda U Think Now by 4 ¼ lengths for $100,000 in the Hollie Hughes Stakes.

My Boy Tate won the Say Florida Sandy over Lobsta by a neck, but dropped to 4th after a DQ. Without that decision, My Boy Tate is top-2 in seven straight appearances.

The thought of My Boy Tate winning looks promising in Race 9.
