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