BELT: Showed improved interest when third in latest, and remains overdue versus NW2L types; late pop
makes him worth using in gimmicks.
CELTIC APPROVAL: Gained and was up in time to win off the bench in latest; takes another.
CITY RAIN: Went very well for second when setting pace, battling, and staying on gamely late in first start since
last-November; shown plenty of talent thus far.
COLD PLAY: Should only benefit from even-going sixth in career debut; pedigree points to perhaps try route and/or turf
scene at some point in the future.
CRYSTAL ARCHER: Took plenty of tote play for chase/fade debut, and should move forward given conditioning gained from
route experience; steps up.
GILDED EMPEROR: Lags early but rolls late, and exits strong third in which he was the beaten favorite; hard-hitting veteran
atones next time.
JUST GOSSIP: Has been hanging up consistent and competitive figures in recent turf tries; appealing middle-moving style
LITTLE MISS DEB: Made it two straight wins when a clear-cut winner in latest return from absence; in career form, and still with
METEOR IMPACT: Battled throughout and held second when odds-on for first start in a year; lightly raced speedster is primed
for big winter season.
PARTY GIRL JO: Failed as favorite when fourth in return from break, but remained popular at claim box; certainly worth the stab
for $10K-tag ticket.
VIRGINIA PRIDE: Veteran fell flat in latest, but prior form enables us to forgive the try; expect more involvement early and throughout
return bid; can go dirt or turf.
4STARSPECIAL: BONAY: Has been showing good early speed since moving back to turf scene, but has competed in tough
spots in each of her last two; still love well-bred filly’s potential.
LONGSHOT: GOLDEN SPUR: Returned in very strong fashion when second two starts back, and may have felt effects when
somewhat flat in latest; time to bounce right back to better form.
ALL OF ME: Looked good scoring wire to wire over conditioned allowance foes and her speed will come in handy against
BRASSY KARAKORUM: Was away a step slow and then rushed up to the lead before tiring late to finish third at 60-1, follow
right back with maidens.
CAROLLER: Finished fifth in his career debut and was not even beaten a length as five horses hit the wire. Despite the fact
that was his first race and he was wide he will be tough to down next out.
CAT WOMAN: Was well beaten for the win but just missed the show spot by a neck. Improving sort should offer value with New York
CRAFTY SONG: Took back off the speed duel and took over to score by more than four and a half lengths and is one to watch
with better, tab.
DREAMS OF RANCO: Showed improved early foot and almost got the job done just missing by ¾’s of a length. Likes the inner track
and should break her maiden next out.
HOURLY STORM: Did not make an impact for win but did finish fairly close while checking in fifth. Try this one back with a stretchout
IT’S SPOOKY: Led into the stretch before getting run down for the win while checking in third. May need some class relief to show
LIFEBYTHEDROP: Speedy filly finished up the track after setting the pace as the favorite on a day when speed was not doing very
well. Try her again with similar at a better price.
LOOK AT HER: Showed good speed in her first career start and that early foot will come in handy with $25k maiden claimers.
MISTDA: Was laying back early on, slowly moved up while saving ground and then swung wide with a powerful run to score by more
than five lengths. New Yorker has a future ahead of her.
MR. BUBBY: We will give this one another shot after finishing a well beaten fifth last out and may need a further drop down the claiming
NEVADA STRIP: Just got up to finish second last out when dropped in for a $10k claiming price and will be tough with similar right back.
PUPPY LOVE: Was an even fifth last out with conditioned claimers and will benefit from a switch to fillies and mares.
SOVEREIGNOFTHESEAS: Was quickly clear into the first turn and never looked back, scoring by more than a length over New York
breds. Has a shot with open company if properly placed.
WILD HORSES: Went wire to wire when dropped in for $15k last out and should followed closely with similar or better, tab.
4STARSPECIAL: SEATTLE ASH: Ran a much improved race second time out for new barn and should be tough to down next out
if she can clear for the lead.
LONGSHOT: CROUCHING TIGER: Nobody even came close to the top two finishers who went around the track 1-2. However, he did make
up some ground to finish fourth and can complete a very nice exotic next out, be there.
