HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
A.P. JEWEL: Brings no early speed, but also brings closing punch when in the mood; seems to be slowly but steadily finding stride since back from lengthy break.
CRIMSON ORE: Made the pace and remained clear throughout when able to score in her first local start most recently; takes another off $20K-claim by trainer Maker.
GENERAL JAKE: Chased along the inside and put in respectable effort for third when in with winners for the first time in his latest; seems to like course and has more to give.
MAGIC TUNE: Returned from June 2007 break and put in real nice try for third in her latest; very dangerous if able to make her way to the pace in subsequent starts.
PRINCESS B G: Now has a pair of races under her saddle since back from February-break, and can move forward; typically in the mix, so use in gimmicks.
SWERVE: Chased the pace from outside spot and faded when it counted in most recent fourth-place finish; show of early speed does indicate show of sharpness he can build on.
ULAH TYSON: Battled outside on the pace and stayed on for fourth when beaten as the choice in his first start off claim by trainer Radcliffe; next time.
WAKI ABOUT BOO: Rallied from not too far off the pace and drew out through the lane for nice score in his latest; in exacta 14 of 27 starts, he can climb class ladder.
YOYO: Took the turn wide and managed to hold third position through the stretch in what should prove useful juvenile debut; expect more early interest from daughter of Yonaguska moving forward.
4*SPECIAL: CHARITY QUEST: Moved early than usual in her latest, made the lead, and faded to fourth through the stretch; builds upon first start since February.
LONGSHOT: DROP DEAD LEGS: Put in a nice middle move but faded from contention and finished sixth over sloppy ground most recently; experience with winners count, she can surprise.
CASANOVA KILLER: Shook free on pace and held second when tested for class in latest stakes bid; lightly raced 3YO filly with plenty of talent and potential.
COBALT KID: Chased, drifted wide, and faded a bit when fourth in debut run he should be able to build upon; juvenile colt gets another tumble.
DEVILISH TOM: Chased in fifth throughout when back from December-break for his latest; major player with lower-end types on sprint scene.
FOUR KARATS: Made her way to the pace and held stretch margin in upset victory most recently; fresh filly can hold strong form now.
KAUFY BIG SHOT: Dueled inside and held well in his latest, but settled for third in a blanket finish; proven check-getter is sharp right now, so stay on board.
NIGHTTIME DANCER: Stalked wide and stopped when in deep at ALW level most recently; chance to rebound with softer crew.
PROFESSOR BIGGS: Rated a touch, took over, and could only manage second best behind a blowout winner in short lot most recently; 10-time winner is sharp right now.
ROCK N’ BID: Rallied wide to pick up second in an improved performance most recently, and seems on verge of breakout; a must in gimmicks.
WAITINFORASUNNYDAY: Stumbled at the break, made the pace, and shook off pressure en route to a sharp 2 ¾-length maiden score in her latest; right back.
4*SPECIAL: HELLO EASY STREET: Rallied from the outside and settled for second through the stretch when unable to reel in winner; filly is in career-best form right now.
LONGSHOT: SAAY MI NAME: Swung wide and put in a nice run to notch second in his first start off claim by trainer Lake most recently; 8YO gelding is flat out tough.
