Lone Star: Texas Air stands out based on recent company line

Email

Texas Air is just two races removed from a run-in with Master Rick and the company line points him out as the one to beat in Saturday’s third race at Lone Star Park. The second-level optional $40,000 claimer is for 3-year-olds and up at a mile.

Texas Air was fourth to Master Rick at a similar level Feb. 28 at Oaklawn. Following that race, Master Rick won the Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile at Lone Star with a Beyer Speed Figure of 105, while Texas Air was second in the track’s $50,000 Premiere. 

Lindey Wade has the mount on Texas Air for Paul J. Rigali Jr., and trainer Allen Milligan.
