HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
CALL LEADER: Proven winner romped at odds-on in his latest, making it three wins from his last four starts; can’t find a reason to jump ship now.
CAT TIDE: Rallied well through the slop (only one-for-eight on wet tracks) to pick up third in his most recent start; a must-use in current form.
FORSBERG: Rallied to be a close fourth in course return most recently; veteran gelding can be depended upon in your gimmicks in lower-end claiming tilts.
GET OUTTA DODGE: Showed improved early and overall interest when second in his most recent start; long overdue gelding does provide value in exotics.
LIL GENERAL: Showed uncharacteristic early interest and faded in latest, but show of early pop is a sign of sharpness; keep an eye on live longshot going forward.
WARSASW WARRIOR: Chased and weakened when sixth in his latest start; can secure front-running spot and lead throughout with softer group.
4STARSPECIAL: SHAPIRO: Returned from brief break, battled on pace, and weakened a touch to finish third when beaten as the favorite in her latest; follow off claim by trainer Radosevich.
LONGSHOT: MISWAKI MAC: Failed to post a threat when trying to make up ground over wet track in latest; could surprise if a bit more involved early next time.
CARESSIVE: Brings a pedigree to die for as a juvenile daughter of A.P. Indy and Caress, but showed little in sprint debut; Harty trainee perks up with distance/experience.
CLEVER DUDE: Raced wide, loomed, and could only manage an even late finish for third in latest; primed for third start of current form cycle moving to Talley barn.
ES VERDAD: Raced wide giving chase throughout and finished third in blanket finish when making her career debut; expect even more going forward from speed-bred newcomer.
HARBOUR BUOY: Rallied from outside post and off a wide trip to pick up third in her latest; intriguing $7,5K-claim for trainer Dyer.
MINISTER’S JOY: Came from well out of it to rally for second when beaten just a head in latest off-the-turf attempt; gives barn options going forward.
MR. PINSTRIPE: Couldn’t mount a rally when seventh in flat sprint bid most recently; first try since early-September in hot race will help matters going forward.
THE POTTERS HAND: Raced in close attendance to the early pace, took over, and drew out for clear score over 10 opponents in latest; right back for another.
TOUGH APPLES: Battled early from outside and weakened to fourth in first try on turf most recently, but show of life was a step in right direction; next time.
TRUE COMPETITOR: Rallied from wide and well back to be second, beaten just a length, in route debut; son of Point Given goes for dangerous Oxley/Ward team.
4STARSPECIAL: SHIFT TIME: Was bumped at the break and then moved up to battle for the lead before he tired to third in latest; benefits from first try with winners off nearly a four-month break.
LONGSHOT: ANSWER THE BELL: Went postward at 11-1 for debut run, with jockey Bejarano taking the call; wide try for fifth in large group suggests he’s prepped for next time.
