HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
I’VE GOT SUNSHINE: Went in fairly even fashion when a non-threatening fourth in her first start since late-June; builds upon effort for Gaudet barn.
MISS TIZZYNOW: Never threatened when fourth in what should prove a useful debut race; in winning Motion barn and a daughter of hot sire Tiznow.
NANANINA: Rallied to wear down leader in time for victory in latest and is in good form right now; takes next logical step and gets by NW3L foes.
ON MY DIME: Failed to live up to favored billing when a distant fourth in his career debut; juvenile from Steve Klesaris barn (29% in ’06) moves up in a hurry.
SWORD OF DUBAI: Rallied for second at long odds in his latest and is improving from race to race; don’t expect as long a price going forward, but expect a win.
WHO IS CHRIS G.: Showed more early interest than usual in his latest and faded to third in the stretch; gelding is sharp, but overdue and needs careful rating.
4STARSPECIAL: QUEEN MO: Posted overdue maiden win when at turf route for the first time in her latest, and should now build upon winning experience; right back.
LONGSHOT: TAKE COMMAND: Raced wide and willing behind soft pace to be along for fifth in crowded group most recently; stay on board.
BOOGABOO: Shook off pace pressure and drew off to lengthy score as the winning favorite in his promising career debut; takes next logical step.
CAPTAIN’S MAST: Son of Concern seems to be learning on the job and should continue to improve with racing experience; pedigree for any task.
CUTTY PARK: Chased and weakened when a disappointment to public in his latest; gets one last shot on clear lead for winning Lake barn.
GRAND LUCENCI: Proven veteran packs a late stretch kick and knows how to put it to use over this course; maintains sharp form.
MEADOW JUMPER: Fell flat in his latest when moved from turf to dirt, but figures sharper for the experience going forward; Salzman barn gets him back on track.
MOJAVE QUEEN: Won her maiden in impressive fashion in July and should make her presence felt with winners; juvenile with speed to consider.
OUR PEAK: Needs pace and racing luck to set up his rally, but is a 3YO who has improved with racing and remains worth following.
RA DER DEAN: Blasted clear on pace and battled when hooked only to be second, beaten a nose, in his latest; another chance in current form.
STACY’S FAVORITE: Rallied for third – and through trouble – in an impressive effort most recently; veteran mare is very sharp now and must be included on all tickets.
SUSAN KARAN: Showed some early interest and weakened to sixth when long odds in her debut; effort moves this filly up a great deal, so expect more next time.
4STARSPECIAL:MY MISTY’S ECHO: Showed the way early and weakened to be a distant third when faced with tougher class/distance demands in latest; benefits in a hurry.
LONGSHOT: HAGGARD: Showed improved early interest in his latest, but was caught up in speed duel and faded to fifth; experience with winners helps him going forward.
