Horses To Watch

By: ATC


LAUREL

CRIMSON N GOLD: Chased between foes and never really proved a factor when a relatively even-going fifth

in latest; expect more going forward.

CRYSTAL CLIPPER: Won battle for second behind dominant winner when beaten at odds-on for latest; figures

to atone off claim by trainer Albert.

FROSTY ALIBHAI: Rallied for fourth in race decided by duo that raced with pace throughout; needs hot pace to

set up late pop in allowance routes.

JORGIE STOVER: Took both turns wide when fifth after middle-moving as failed favorite in latest; awaiting return in

optional-claiming route spot.

MINER’S MINT: Lacked early speed, but rallied from wide spot to pick up third in maiden special weight route; stamp

diploma past due at this point.

PHANTOM FOX: Late-moving style of little help when trying to rally from wide spot in race controlled on pace throughout

by a blowout, odds-on winner; next time.

PRIVATE J D: Bore in leaving the gate and never really got on track thereafter when a well-bet disappointment in latest;

worth one more shot versus maiden claiming stock.

PUFFIN POINT: Broke ninth of 10 from rail post and settled for a distant third as a beaten favorite in latest; believe Smith

trainee is better than effort suggests.

SEA OF PROMISES: Led throughout clear-cut allowance score with something left most recently; follow Sea of Secrets

juvenile filly through her conditions on local scene.

 

4STARSPECIAL: JACQUELINE K: Overcame post 10 on route scene to assert command early and lead comfortably

throughout latest win; sharp filly with upside.

LONGSHOT: SENOR GATOR: Had eventful start bothering foes, then sped to lead and battled with pace before giving

way; speed to exit maiden claiming ranks sooner rather than later.

 

 

FAIR GROUNDS

CAT OF TOMORROW: Chased in vain in maiden special weight sprint most recently; juvenile could be one to watch as

distances get longer.

CHEROKEE WORLD: Was briefly clear early, but took chasing/fading role once headed as the failed favorite in latest; must

respect speed in lower-end claiming sprints, nonetheless.

CONDOR: Settled wide, loomed, and lacked punch when it counted; one more chance with $10K-tag company for trainer

Cuccia.

DANZAMAN: Settled early, middle-moved between rivals, and simply continued on in even, non-threatening manner in

last; figures better in similar turf route company.

DYNA PENNY: Rallied for second, cutting into winning margin of promising winner who raced on clear pace; filly is very

promising in her own right.

FOREIGN SECRETARY: Back-classy gelding lived up to favored billing with clear-cut score most recently; follow up the

class ladder now for trainer Calhoun.

LADY GLACKEN: Raced between foes and was outrun by early leaders, but did respond when needed to edge clear

for win; claimed by trainer Frederick, she can step up.

PRINCE MALAGRA: Had fair inside-out trip and did rally, only to come up a touch short when within length of winner and

missing second by a head; can improve.

REASON TO SQUALL: Broke last of eight from rail post in last, and did rally well in turf route to finish third especially

considering soft tempo; holds sharp form.

SIERRE NEVADA: Showed good speed from gate, racing with pace and battling gamely throughout in latest third-place

finish; David trainee stays on our tickets.

SLOW WALKIN’ JOHN: Raced unhurried early, bid wide on the turn, and continued even in stretch; stay patient with

juvenile.

STAR STRUCK LATTE: Graduated in latest, and was interesting $15K-claim by trainer Asmussen; juvenile packs punch

and brings upside to the table.

 

4STARSPECIAL: JET LA RAIL: Battled on pace and weakened to third in latest claiming sprint; he did battle after being

hustled between foes early and stayed on well to finish; next time.

LONGSHOT: BOLD BAYOU BABY: Flashed good early speed in crowded maiden special weight group last time, only to fade to

finish fifth of 12; stay with juvenile filly.
