HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BUFFEDANDPOLISHED: Trailed the field early on through reasonable fractions but did close well to finish second to the runaway winning favorite, follow right back with NW3L $12.5k claimers.
FOUR SARATOGA: Shipped in from Philadelphia Park for his last effort and he went right to the lead and never looked back over $5k maiden claimers, respect right back versus winners.
ROMOLO’S WINE: Got away in fourth early on, made a middle move to get into second but tired a bit late for third at 55-1, respect.
SMOKE N VOTE: Was sent right to the lead but took pressure every step of the way tiring in the lane to finish fourth at 10-1, tab with sprinters on the turf.
THIS IS IT: Chased the loose on the lead frontrunner most recently through solid fractions but tired in the lane to finish fourth; tab with $10k claimers.
BEST BET: FAIRLY CRAFTY: Seven year old gelding closed strongly to finish second last out with optional claimers and this backclassy sort must be followed right back.
LONGSHOT: GOLDEN GATOR: Backclassy six year old gelding closed well to finish third most recently with $16k optional claimers and is sharp right now.
COUNTRY MUSIC: Ten year old still has his sharp early speed and lasted into the lane last out before tiring to finish fourth, fits with basement claimers and can lead them all the way at a price.
DON’T QUESTION: Chased the pace right from the start last out at 37-1 and held on well to finish second, can score at a price with Jersey bred allowance foes.
GRETCHMIESTER: Broke from the far outside post last out on the turf, was wide into the turn, then went up to challenge for the lead but tired in the lane for fifth.
MC CONAHY: Broke from the outside post position 10 last out; saved some ground and finished up well for fourth at 57-1, the price will be right.
OUTLAW CAT: Came out of the gate running last out, took pressure on the lead but couldn’t hold off the closers checking in third, tab.
RIVER OF DREAMS: Trailed the field early on racing behind a sharp early pace but did close some ground in the lane to finish fourth at 23-1, give him another look.
STEAMROLLER BLUES: Closed strongly to finish second after shipping in from Philadelphia Park; solid with Jersey bred allowance foes.
BEST BET: THE MIDNIGHT SKIER: Chased a sharp early pace from the rail last out and stayed on well to finish second to the sharp odds-on winner, six year old gelding must be respected with $20k claimers.
LONGSHOT: AY PAPI: Was outrun in her career debut and then raced evenly in the lane to finish fifth, may want to stretchout of make a move to the turf.
