Fair Grounds: Siente El Trueno flops in comeback

Email

Enlighten me: Who was taking 1-2 win odds on Siente El Trueno in race 3? Granted, this horse had scored the sharpest sprint maiden win of the '09-10 Fair Grounds meet, but that was in January on dirt, and this was December on turf. Perhaps the horse didn't care for the lawn (though he is bred for it), but SET was outfooted for the early lead and never really picked up his feet the last three furlongs, fading to run off the board in an N1X allowance. Future Covenant, on the other hand, was sharp in victory making first start for trainer Dallas Keen.
