Horses To Watch



ANGEL IN THE WIND: Ran a much improved second when dropped into a maiden claimer. Should

graduate right back versus similar.

BRAVE ONE: One time class master was sharpened most recently showing good speed for a half mile. Look

for a stetchout versus lesser and a score at a solid price.

COSMOS MARINER: Acted up before the start of the race and then came with a very wide run on the turn

before finishing fifth at 66-1. Tab at a price.

DAVE: Always puts in a run but just can not finish it off. Use this one in all exotics against New York breds.

DEVIL’S DUST: Took all the late money but then lost all chance at the start when he broke slow. Made up good

ground for third and must be respected right back with similar.

ELTON: Made a move on the turn to get into contention but flattened out in the drive to finish sixth. Was claimed

by solid barn and must be followed back.

GLIFTER: Was making her first start in over five months and ran well in spots to get up for third. This Allen Jerkens

trainee has room to improve and should graduate next out.

HOMAH HANSEL: Ran a much improved race when switched to the turf and will still offer value next out over that


IT’S SO SIMPLE: Ran an even third at the Meadowlands, followed by a last place finish a few days later. A drop

in class for the hot Dutrow Jr. barn gets the job done.

KARAKORUM GEMSTONE: Was green early on, wide into the stretch and came with some interest late. Right back

for solid barn.

LEXILOUSH: Closed from fourth to score an easy victory against NW1X allowance foes. This 4YO is getting good

right now, follow.

ON THE BUS: New York bred got back to business when switched back to the turf and may have a future, tab.

ONE TUFF FOX: Was very game in his grass debut with a wide trip throughout, he was still able to come running to

get up for the score.

PERSONAL TOUCH: Sat a perfect outside trip and took over to score by more than four lengths. A repeat of that effort

makes him real tough right back.

SIMPLYTRUTH: Was sent off as the favorite after shipping in from California off the claim. Should move through his next

New York bred condition, tab.

TAITTINGER ROSE: Was an easy winner in her second career start for trainer Bill Mott. This well bred filly may have a future

ahead of her.

TRULY A LEGEND: Was in over her head last out against a very solid field of NW2X allowance foes. She needs a drop

in class to show her best.


4STARSPECIAL: SINISTER G: Broke well, took back off the lead and ran on very well to finish second behind the

runaway favorite. Should graduate next out with normal improvement.

LONGSHOT: YELLOWSTONE LADY: Well bred filly showed good early speed and lasted until midstretch before tiring

to fourth. Should be much tighter next out.




ANOTHER GEAR: Ran pretty well off the long layoff on the turf Sept. 28, then got crushed while racing on the dirt

last out Oct. 18. Worth a play back on the sod.

APOLLO WILLFOOL’YA: That sharp speed has taken her a long way in her last two at 29-1 and 12-1. Expect a

shorter price next time around.

BOTZWORTH: While sent off at 5-1 in his debut, he broke poorly and never factored. Willing to give this Art Sherman

colt another shot.

CALIFORNIA STORM: Didn’t debut at the races until turning four and has run rather even in two starts. More

experience and distance can only help.

DISPERSED REWARD: Has plenty of back class to show for, but the Golden Poppy H. over the main track was

asking a bit too much. Tab versus lesser on the sod.

DOUBLE HOUSE: Low-profile barn hits at decent clip and this son of Free House should only get better with


GO NOT WHOA: Proved with a 21-1 victory last out that Bay Meadows is one of his favorite tracks. Seasoned

veteran is out for respect; follow at Golden Gate as well.

LEAVE IT ALONE: Just didn’t fire in her local debut after turning in a second and two thirds at EmD. The price

makes it worth your while.

NASTY MONEY: Plenty of chances for this one, but don’t hold that against him. Can prove to be rather

useful, especially in the exotics.

PAPER COPY: Well-backed for both starts and improved last out off his dismal debut. Headed in the right


POPPY’S COURAGE: Proved $12.5k is where he belongs with a solid score Oct. 17. Play it right back in a

similar spot.

SUCK UM UP BRO: Has showed a decent closing kick in his last couple of outings. Ready to exit the

maiden ranks.

TOMBOY MINE: Have to like the improvement off the dismal debut. Showed some speed and stayed on

for third; moving forward.


4STARSPECIAL: SPICEY GAME: Shipped in from EmD in early October and rolled by eight lengths, then ran

a game second to a loose-on-the-lead winner last out. Get into the game.

LONGSHOT: PLENTY OF TIME: A couple of those recent outings are better than they appear on paper. This

one’s got upset written all over him.
