HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
A NEWLOVE: Has shown added early interest since stretched out in distance two starts back, and that makes her attractive going forward; typically offers value.
AMERICAN PRINCE: Chased and weakened from wide spot most recently, but merits respect off re-claim by trainer Wolfendale; veteran owns 10 lifetime wins.
BAY VILLAGE: Rallied for second, beaten just a head, when returned from January-layoff most recently; gets overdue maiden tally next time.
CATCHATUNE: Settled for third as beaten favorite in his latest start, but brings great overall resume and was most recently claimed by going concern (A. Dutrow barn).
DIXIE GEMSTONE: Never got on track in latest, but is clearly capable of more; banking on winning Campitelli barn to get her back to better form – at a price, of course.
EYE FOR STYLE: Set the early pace and weakened when it counted when fourth as the beaten favorite most recently; owns good second over this strip.
KAT’S MOON: Showed big early speed and remained clear for maiden score off the bench most recently; right back with winners.
LUCKY GEISHA: Was outrun early and then never able to mount a serious threat when wide into lane most recently; capable of better, so give another shot.
PAGAN MOON: Should only improve upon his third-place finish most recently when in with winners off debut score; early lick always a plus in our book.
VONTAY: Set the pace and survived stretch duel to best nine opponents in impressive debut win; intriguing prospect for Grove barn.
4STARSPECIAL: POTOMAC FALLS: Was up against it in latest attempting to rally from well back in short field and settled for second behind blowout winner; atones for favored loss.
LONGSHOT: POWER OF THE PORGI: Chased the pace and weakened to third when asked to stretch his speed a mile most recently; benefits from the experience.
ALLURING BEL: Inexplicably had too much ground to make up from last in first stretchout attempt. Bet back in a sprint, and is worth another try at a route.
ANDOVER THE CASH: Bobbled to her nose at the start and lost all chance in last-place finish on 3/19. Try again on the turf.
BLAZE IT: Set a very fast and pressured pace in return from a seven-month layoff and held on for third, beaten just two heads while clear of the rest of the field. Can win second off the layoff.
BLUE SILENCE: Hesitated at the start to break behind the rest of the field en route to an off-the-board finish. Just needs a better break.
FOSTER: Contested the pace in a race where all the other front-runners tired badly. Don’t ignore in a similar spot.
INDIAN SLIPPER: Was forced out extremely wide on the second turn and cost a better placing as a result when third on 3/16. Better luck next time.
LOLLAPALOOZA: Sped to the front after a rough start and then set a fast pace in a race that set up exclusively for stalkers and closers. Can rebound.
LOWER SHORE: Checked off heels at the start and then rushed up toward the pace, then later got pinched back on the turn in troubled trip on 3/19. Better luck next time.
LUPITA’SLUCKYANGEL: Totally toss-out fifth-place finish on 3/16 when she had the misfortune of getting caught six wide on the first turn and then carried out extremely wide when fouled on the second turn. Follow closely in a similar spot.
ONE FOURTEEN: Found her best stride late after getting off to a bad start in a race where the pace horses held on. Try again vs. cheapies.
REVEALED: Acted up at the starting gate and broke slow to spot the field a few lengths early. Finished off the board but only lost by two lengths.
SIXTH STREET JOE: First starter was hustled to the front and outran 20-1 odds for third in a race where the other speeds faded. May not remain a maiden for long.
SMOOTH SIS: Missed the break and broke three lengths behind the rest of the field, but still raced well for third behind a wire-to-wire winner. Just needs a clean break.
SOCIAL SATIRE: Was making up ground late after going five wide in well-bet career debut. Live overlay off that off-the-board finish.
4STARSPECIAL: REMEMBER AGAIN: Closed with a furious rush but ran out of ground at 5 1/2 furlongs in well-bet debut. Likely graduate in next.
LONGSHOT: OLYMPIAN MEDAL: Broke slowly from the rail and then rushed up into a battle for the lead before fading in career debut. Don’t overlook in second start.
