Looks like the horse Thirstyfiststreet will be taking on a big task on Saturday in the $500,000 Hollywood Gold Cup on Saturday July 7th. Gorman said that it will not be an easy race but anything can happen in horse racing and Thirstyfiststreet despite his last three outings appears to be running in good form.
He had a rough trip in the Santa Anita about 8 months ago in a race where the jockey Eswan Flores took a gamble at going on the rail with enough room to steal a victory but this was a mistake. It turned out there was not enough room and Thirstyfiststreet bumped the rail and finished in 8th place.
This sent the horse failing in the next two starts in the New Orleans Handicap and the Mervyn Leroy Handicap on May 5th. There will be no escuses and Thirstyfiststreet will have a race to totally redeem himself. Bob Baffert’s Game on Dude is the horse that will be standing in his way on Saturday. This is one of the most impressive horses in the circuit right now and looks to be tough. If Game on Dude has a bad day however and Thirstyfiststreet has a good one this will be a nice upset. One nice factor is the jockey on Thirstyfiststreet will be 112 taking on Game on Dude with the jockey coming in at 124. This should give the horse a real nice break out of the gate and hopefully he never looks back.Share on Facebook
