Horses To Watch

By: ATC


 

TURF PARADISE

CAMPANITA: Flashed early speed and stayed on to finish third of nine in maiden special weight turf race on

Nov. 17; willing filly graduates shortly.

CHESS PLAY: Battled with pace players, in a race ultimately decided by late movers, and held to finish a respectable

fourth; 2-year-old filly prospect for trainer Pearson.

EAST VALI: Chased throughout and gamely won battle for second in race won by foe who led in clear fashion the

entire race; better set-up gets him in winner’s circle.

FANZOCA: Rallied to win latest dirt sprint over good ground, running down a clear, odds-on leader; consider on

turf, also.

GENERAL BILTMORE: Chased and faded in latest turf try; staying with Rollins trainee, quite simply because we

like his running style.

GRAPHIC AVENUE: Pressed the pace and gave way in latest, but his early speed should not be overlooked in

similar claiming sprints.

MAXIMUM EXPOSURE: Veered in at the gap but made some progress late to finish fourth over muddy ground in

race controlled by blowout winner; stay on board.

MY CUPID: Finished a clear second when odds-on for 2-year-old futurity trial; staying with juvenile who showed good early speed

throughout.

STRAWBERRYFIELDS: Finished fourth at odds-on when going evenly in maiden claiming sprint; interesting $5K-claim by

trainer Pearson is worth at least one shot.

 

4STARSPECIAL: STRAWBERRY ICE: Chased throughout, but settled for a clear third when unable to get to

top pair that got valued first run; expect more speed – early and throughout next time.

LONGSHOT: THINKABOUT ELVIS: Broke eighth from post 10 of 10 but rallied for third over wet ground in

race controlled throughout by top two finishers; sharp right now.

 

 

GOLDEN GATE

BOLD ARIES: Consistent gelding always shows up for work. Tab in a similar spot

next time out.

CHESTER STREET: Broke maiden for a tag, then pressed the pace and faded to seventh in a starter

allowance last time. Fits best with claimers.

FIRST DRAFT: Just keeps on turning in solid efforts on the turf, including a second-place finish at Golden

Gate Nov. 16. Chestnut filly is steady money.

HERE COMES BABY: Returned off a long layoff and didn’t miss a beat. Jumped out to the lead, set fast fractions

of :21 4/5, :44 3/5 and 56 3/5 and ran away to a three-length victory. Right back versus winners.

LUCKY LAREDO: Didn’t run that bad last time considering he was making his first start since January. Give him another

shot second start off the layoff.

LUKE’S FINEST: Beaten chalk in her bow deserves another chance for top barn. Moves forward off the second-place

finish.

PHOTO FOR SHOW: Her record went to 0-for-17 with a third-place finish last time, but that doesn’t mean throw her

out completely. Toss in your gimmicks; gets a piece of it.

PIC OF THE WEEK: Broke her maiden at first asking versus $12.5k maiden claimers, then just missed against $12.5k taggers

second time around. Gets her picture taken.

ROADS WEST: Elusive Quality gelding had some tough luck in his debut, but still ran third after getting bumped and

impeded at the start. Gets another chance.

STAR WIZARD: Hollendorfer filly only has one win out of seven starts, but is consistently in the mix. Might get

overlooked on the win end.

TOMORROW’S AFFAIR: Pressed a fast pace in her latest outing and faded to seventh as a result. Shakes loose

and scores.

TONYRONY: Son of Marquetry is consistent as they come. Tab this steady check collector going any distance.

 

4STARSPECIAL: LONG MAY SHE RUN: Was claimed out of her debut May 25 and didn’t return until wiring a field of

maiden claimers Nov. 16. Ready for the next level.

LONGSHOT: CALL COLUMBO: Improved a ton at 54-1 while finishing third when dropped in for $16k. Won’t get that price

again, but will still make it worth your time.
