HORSES TO WATCH

By: ATC


GOLDEN GATE

BEAUX ARTES: Like this filly’s early speed, but she has a problem staying with it once pressed.

Upset potential if able to shake loose third start off the vacation.

CIEL AVENUE: Got bumped repeatedly at the start in his most recent outing and still ran a decent

sixth. Art Sherman calls the shots.

COURT SHENANIGANS: WA-bred fired a :47 1/5 four-furlong bullet workout at Bay Meadows

Nov. 3. Looking good.

CRYPTOCRAFT: If you can excuse his latest experience, he’s constantly been in thick of things.

Overdue for a victory; stay close.

MR. LEE: Ran the best race of his four-race career last time, second start off the layoff. Further

improvement is expected.

OLD COURT’S CAT: Willing to excuse her second try off the layoff. She broke a step slow, was

forced to check and lugged out on the turn. Give this one another chance.

SKIP A PAYMENT: Overdue for a win, but is consistently in the mix. Won’t be facing much if kept

at the current level.

STAR WIZARD: Is winless in three turf attempts with two seconds and one third. Hollendorfer filly

is ready to put that streak to bed.

STRICKLY BUSINESS: Can’t remember the last time this old boy won one, but that doesn’t mean he

can’t round out a hefty exotic. Use accordingly.

SUMMER TRICK: Was knocking on the door in recent starts, until a dismal seventh-place finish Nov. 2.

You’ll be rewarded for your risk factor.

TONYRONY: Dropped down to $6,250 and rolled as the 1-2 choice. Will be hard to handle versus

similar next out.

UNUSUAL MIST: Came on again late after dueling in his turf debut. Speedball is razor sharp; head

to the windows with authority.

 

4STARSPECIAL: SECRET CORSAGE: Followed up her eight-length Oct. 13 allowance victory with a

solid second-place finish in the Bay Meadows Lassie S. Nov. 2. Right back.

LONGSHOT: STEVENS DAY: Some of those recent efforts are better than they appear on paper. Get a

price and go with it.

 

 

CHURCHILL DOWNS

AH BOO: Improved a ton when he finished a solid third after leading until late in the stretch. The drop

into maiden claiming company was the key and his graduation day nears.

BOOZIN’ SUSAN: Was a solid third last out against turf sprinters in a race that went in a solid time. Look

for her on either surface next out.

CASE CHARMER: Ran a solid race last out chasing the pace and easily defeated his other pace foes.

Call at a price on the lead next out.

COUNTRY ROMANCE: Chased a very fast pace last out and actually held a lead into the stretch before tiring

to fourth. Speedy filly should be followed right back.

DEER LAKE: Stalked the pace from the far outside post before taking over to score an easy victory over

optional claiming foes. Was claimed out of that race for $62.5k and should turn into a profitable buy.

MAJESTIC MOMMY: Was used up on the lead through some swift fractions and held very well to finish third.

Stamps diploma next out, tab.

MY TIME NOW: Finished up well to get into third last out at 38-1 and this 2YO may continue to improve the longer

she goes.

RE LYD: Has not been performing up to task and finished a well beaten seventh. A drop in class is what she

needs to show her best.

SMOKED EM: Made the pace in a very tough money allowance field and tired in the drive to finish sixth. Turf

or dirt are both options.

STEAL THE CLAIM: Defeated a Nw2L field of $25k claimers and can move up to the next level and score

again.

WASABI CAT: Looked real good breaking his maiden last out as the 3-5 favorite and this 2YO colt has a bright

future ahead of him.

WESTERN HUSSY: Broke from a tough rail spot a step slow and then rushed to the lead through a very fast

opening quarter mile before tiring in the drive. A better post helps.

 

4STARSPECIAL: NANNYCAM: Well bred filly from the John Ward Jr. barn has major potential and a bright future

ahead of her. Look for her against any kind next out.

LONGSHOT: PRAYER CHAIN: Tried conditioned claimers off his maiden win but was used up chasing the pace

throughout. Try again with NW2L foes.
