HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
CLASSIC FLIRT: New York bred three year old filly was super impressive in her debut defeating open company at Delaware but followed it up with a poor effort when trying New York breds as the favorite. The price will be better next out and she should bounce back.
EARHART: Tried to take it all the way on the lead most recently when trying the turf but tired in the drive to finish sixth, a switch back to the dirt with that conditioning seems logical.
FIRST AT SUMMER: Chased the pace of the odds-on choice early on but tired when it counted to finish last of sixth in her first try since March, may need a drop to show her best.
IRON GODDESS: Couldn’t be more impressive running her record to two for two over the turf with a dominating score despite breaking from the far outside post, can stretch her speed a little further, sharp.
OF ALL TIMES: Was on a good roll before they moved him up and stretched him out in distance and he tired badly in the lane, needs a drop and a turnback in distance to get back to his winning ways.
PROVIDED FOR: Four year old filly from a low profile barn opened up a lead down the backside on the turf last out before tiring to finish fourth at 26-1, the price will be right.
SAMMY’S TOY: Was chasing the two leaders from the show spot with solid fractions and was still there late to finish fourth about a length off the winner, the price is right.
SMARTERALEX: Two year old colt improved when switched to the turf last out finishing fourth in a solid time, the further they go the better, tab.
WHO FU: Stalked the leaders last out on the turf from a good spot right in behind the leaders while a little rank, got room at the top of the lane but was bumped off stride and didn’t go on with it finishing sixth, can light up the board.
ZIP OF FOOLS: Has been in over her head in her last few and will benefit from a drop in class; don’t dismiss despite a few poor efforts.
BEST BET: WAR MONGER: Put in a nice effort last out to score in his second career start after having trouble in his debut, can go on to better things for top barn.
LONGSHOT: CABBAGE PATCH GAL: Raced at the back of the field last out with NW2L $35k claimers on the turf going six furlongs, before closing well for fourth, follow back at a nice price.
BRASSY BOOTS: Impressed with this mare as she continues to improve in those sprint races on the turf and her most recent effort was solid, taken to repeat.
CHOLLIE ONE: Closed well to finish third while being beat about six lengths behind a wire to wire winner that went a half in 43:4, follow on a more even surface.
FLYING FINISH: Chased the leader through some decent fractions, took over that lead in the stretch but was run down late to just miss by a neck, scores with NW2L $16k claimers.
I CAN’T DANCE: Was battling on the lead right from the start through some very fast fractions only to get run down late by a nose, scores with NW2L $12.5k claimers off that effort.
JOHNNY SPREADSHEET: Speedster didn’t make the lead last out but was right up on the pace through a half in 44:4 and was still there late to finish third, just two necks off the winner, a clear lead gets the job done.
PALATE PLEASER: Broke from the rail last out and was soon on the lead setting the fractions at 43-1, was overtaken in the lane but did hang in well for third despite the 11-month layoff, the price will be right.
TROPICAL PLAY: Needed the race last out when coming off a November layoff and didn’t get the best of trips battling head to head early and then tiring for a good fourth, should be set for best next out.
BEST BET: ELENA’S PRINCESS: This four year old filly just continues to get better with each start and her most recent effort where she chased the sharp early pace on the turf, took over into the lane but had to settle for the place spot, sharp now.
LONGSHOT: SANCTION: Three year old closed strongly in the drive to score going away on the turf last out at 10-1 and may have a future ahead of him, follow.
