HORSES TO WATCH
BEAU C FUSS: Stalked the leaders from third early on, made a quick move after the quarter mile to challenge for the lead into the lane and tired very late to finish third, respect.
BOCALLI: Trailed the field of eight last out through reasonable splits but closed well for a good second after last racing back in August at Emerald Downs, should be tighter next out.
DIAMOND VIEW: Tracked the leaders from seventh early on and made a big move to get into second as they approached the top of the stretch but couldn’t get to the leader while five lengths clear of the show horse, solid.
MINING GOLD: Sped away from the gate early on, set some decent splits but couldn’t hold off the odds-on choice but did hold on well for second; respect.
RED LINE: Ran on well in the lane to finish a close-up third after racing near the back of the pack early on and will benefit from his first race since August.
BEST BET: REDDER: Was hung out six wide into the first turn most recently, pressed the pace but still held on well for the place spot, needs a better post to get it done right back.
LONGSHOT: SWEETHEART SATIN: Got away near the back of the pack, made a good wide move from ninth to get into third and held on well for the show spot at 40-1, tab.
ALYSSA THE DANCER: Broke well, dropped back on the turn, came wide into the lane and finished a close-up fourth, may want more ground for solid barn.
AMBASSADOR DAN: Has put two solid races in a row now most recently finishing second at 26-1, in sharp form and should be followed with a similar group.
BOURNE FIRST: Raced near the back of the pack most recently while being outrun behind a swift pace, did make up some ground into the lane to finish fourth; follow right back for top barn.
DAVID’S SKYE: Set a very fast pace last out while taking pressure every step of the way, will be tough to catch with a better pace scenario right back.
DIFFERENT DRUMMER: First time starter broke last in a field of 10, settled in before making a big wide move on the far turn to get into the race and finished up well towards the inside for fourth; should improve next out.
DRIZZLY: Hard hitting five year old gelding was up against it last out over a track that favored speed and he raced evenly throughout checking in fourth; must respect with similar over a more honest track.
FALCON’S PEAK: Pressed the pace right from the start last out, dropped back a bit on the turn and then came again for fourth in his first start since June; improves off that race with similar.
GOLDSVILLE: Ran on well to finish third over a speed favoring sloppy track and this well bred sort should improve off that race.
RABATASH: Was making his first start in this country and was coming off an April layoff, set the pace until midstretch before tiring, should be tighter next out.
BEST BET: ZAFTIG: Was outrun after the first quarter mile, then was green in her career debut and then was evenly to finish fifth, will be a lot better next out for the Jimmy Jerkens barn and will be tough right back.
LONGSHOT: SHOE BABE: Was outrun early on behind a very sharp pace, made up some ground as they approached the top of the stretch and then was even in the lane, a drop in class may do the trick.
