HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
AMONGOOSEAMONGUS: Returned from a May layoff most recently and ran on well to finish fourth, just about 1 ½ lengths off the place horse at 87-1, probably fits better with maiden claimers, tab.
ANGEL DANCER: Hard hitting mare has lost a few steps but in the right spot versus lower level claimers she can surprise at a price.
BUDDY’S HOLIDAY: Looked good breaking his maiden last out although he did get a good pace scenario slowing the fractions down early; well bred youngster can go on to bigger and better things.
CALL ME KARAKORUM: Chased a sharp pace last out when trying winners and she gave it up after a half mile, a drop in class will do.
JENNYS ON RADIO: Always to race evenly despite the class level and her last start was no different as she checked in sixth, she may get the right trip one of these starts so she is a must use in all exotics.
LOOKIE COOKIE: Raced close-up early on but never really made and impact and tired to finish sixth, well bred filly should improve in her second career start for a solid barn that does better with a race under their belt.
SAMSINCHARGE: Veteran mare is a hard hitter on the racetrack and her most recent sixth place finish after chasing the pace was a good start coming off a may layoff; should be much tighter for her next start.
SLIPSTONE: Was coming off an August layoff for her last start when she finished an even sixth in a race that the top five finishers went around the track right from the start, the price will be right next out so take a shot.
BEST BET: BEAU DARE: Was quickly clear to the lead right from the start last out and never looked back, soon to be five year old mare has the backclass to call on and is taken to repeat.
LONGSHOT: FAST AND FURIOUS: Showed speed from the outside, raced wide into the first turn and then was very wide down the backside before tiring in the lane, a turnback in distance may be the key to a large mutuel.
ABSENT FRIEND: Backclassy veteran made a good run into the lane to finish second to the favored wire to wire winner who was aided by slow fractions, tab right in a similar spot.
EIGHT BELLES: Made a big move to take over the lead into the lane but couldn’t go on with it and had to settle for second to the odds-on winner, a better timed ride gets her there right back.
ELLE SOCIETY: Was never that far back early on from post one while coming off an August layoff and scored nicely breaking her maiden by a length, ready for winners at a decent price.
GROOVY LUCK: Speedy but unsound four year old stopped after making the lead past the half in an off the turf event, will be especially tough back with sprinters on the turf and it’s a plus if he returns relatively quickly.
LONE STAR SPECIAL: Ran an even fifth most recently with maiden special weights despite breaking from an outside post, a better post can help his cause at a nice mutuel.
SEA GAZE: Raced near the back of the pack early on behind slow early splits but put in a good run to finish second to the wire to wire winner, must be followed right back off that sharp effort.
THE Q CLUB: Tried to put them away early on opening up a clear lead right from the start but tired to finish third with optional statebred claimers, tab with similar.
YES SHE’S SMOOTH: Broke from the outside post seven for her last start, raced wide into a slow half mile and then finished evenly for third against NW3L $10k claimers, respect right back.
BEST BET: BINGO IS MY NAME: Ran a solid race last out in her career debut going a two turn mile, set the pace into the lane and only tired late at 37-1; follow right back with statebred maidens.
LONGSHOT: SCION: Four year old gelding closed well to finish third last out behind the odds-on choice at 67-1 versus $5k claimers, is a must use in all exotics next out.
