The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

   Moreno failed to get the money in nine attempts over various surfaces and distances while racing in Southern California, including a second-place finish in a two-turn affair at Santa Anita Apr. 13 and a fourth-place finish over the Betfair Hollywood Park grass May 5. The bay snuck in under the radar on the GI Belmont S. undercard with first-time blinkers to post a dominating 6 1/4-length wire-to-wire victory, and he took plenty of support in this fairly weak renewal of the Dwyer. Sent to the front by Jose Ortiz, Moreno was unchallenged through a half mile in :47.36, and took off down the lane to win for fun. “We were going to go to Saratoga, so we put him on a plane to come out here when we ran Salutos Amigos [Salute the Sarge in the GII Woody Stephens S.], and have company for him to work with,” Southern Equine’s John Daley revealed. “This horse has done amazing since we have been here. He just really seems to have blossomed; all of his works have been fantastic. With the way he ran in his maiden race, we figured that while we are here, why not take a shot?” Daley continued, “We’ve been a little frustrated; we always knew there was a little more there. I’m just glad he showed his true colors today. He’ll ship to Saratoga tomorrow morning, take a little break, and we’ll see what’s next.”
