Race 12 | 3-23-24 | Fairgrounds Race Track | 6:42 PM E

The Grade 2 Louisiana Derby is on Saturday, March 23rd, and horse racing enthusiasts and bettors are eagerly seeking a horse that could potentially yield a substantial return on their investment. Track Phantom is one horse that stands out as a strong contender, with morning line odds at 3/1. This 3-year-old colt by Quality Road has never finished out of the money in six career starts, earning $365,000.

Track Phantom has left an indelible mark on the Fairgrounds track, winning two races and securing a second-place finish in his three career starts. This solid track record positions him as a formidable contender for the Louisiana Derby, as his previous victories on the course indicate his familiarity and ability to perform under pressure.

Track Phantom is a good choice for the Louisiana Derby due to his impressive late solid pace speed figure. Equibase reports that he holds the second-fastest late-pace speed figure among all the horses in the race. This means he can make a strong finish and a late surge, which could ultimately determine whether he wins or loses the race.

His remarkable ability to bounce back from a defeat sets Track Phantom apart. After a second-place finish, he has triumphed in both subsequent races, a testament to his mental grit and determination. This resilience is particularly crucial in high-stakes events like the Louisiana Derby, where the pressure is intense.

In conclusion, there are several reasons why Track Phantom is an excellent choice to win & place in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby:

1) He has a proven record on the Fairgrounds track.

2) He has a solid late-pace speed figure, which means he excels in the race's final stages.

3) He has shown resilience after a loss, indicating his ability to bounce back and perform well.

4) Joel Rosario was in the irons when he finished second from the 11th post in his last race.
