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.
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
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
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.
