Horses To Watch



BEHRNIK: Finished a solid third just missing the place spot by a neck and should be followed right

back with NW1X allowance foes.

BIG RUBY K: Came with a strong wide run before flattening out late in the drive to finish third. Improving sort

should be followed closely.

CALLCAT: Is an improving three year old New York bred who closed well to finish second behind the favorite and

is one to watch versus similar.

COUNTLESS GOLD: Made up some ground to finish fourth behind a runaway winner in a race that went in a quick


DAVID’S C BISCUIT: Finally got into a race and finished an even fifth against a decent allowance field. Take this

one on a drop into claimers.

FINAL TABLE: Was quickly clear to the lead only to tire in the stretch finishing third. Hails from solid barn and will be

tough on the lead next out with similar.

GRAY FEVER: Came with a flying finish to get up for second and will be tough with $20k maiden claimers.

KARAKORUM ROCK: Was up close to the pace last out before tiring to finish eighth. Will improve with that race under

his belt and the price will be right; stay there.

PLANETS ALIGNED: Was outrun through the first part of the race and finished an even sixth against maiden special

weight company. Has the talent and should be followed right back especially with a drop into maiden claimers.

PRESENCE: Once promising New York dropped in for a tag and finished 8th without making an impact. A further drop down

the claiming ladder can prove the key to victory.

SUAVE DEVIL: Got to the lead in the stretch and just missed holding off the heavy favorite missing by a neck, tab.

SWEPT IN THREE: Is best when he is on the lead and he was used up last out in a three way duel for command before tiring

in the lane. Look for a better pace scenario and go to the window.

TRICK AGAIN: Ran on well to finish second behind a runaway winner. Was claimed from that race and showed a different

dimension by coming off the pace.

VIRGIN VOYAGE: Showed some decent late kick last out when she finished third and will benefit from that race under her


VOLCANIC HILL: Closed well in the stretch to miss by just a length against $7.5k claimers and fits nicely at that level for a barn

that holds their own in the winter.

WATRAL’S SENOR: Ran a much improved race when sent two turns for the first time and finished a decent fourth.

XTRA HEART: Needed the race off the layoff and was not that badly beaten finishing fifth and will be much tighter next out.


4PSPECIAL: SOUTHEASTER: Shipped in and never looked back scoring wire to wire by six lengths against $25k claimers.

Will be tough versus better next out with a similar effort.

LONGSHOT: WARRIOR REVENGE: Was outrun for the early part of the race and then made a strong wide run on the turn to get

into a striking spot before flattening out late to finish seventh. Follow.





BLUE HILLS: Always loved this classy mare, who now has two starts under her saddle since return from break

and figures set for return to best stuff.

EDDIE WHITE SOX: Came up empty late, but after racing wide much of the way in latest; honest-going late mover

deserves at least another shot.

GALA MAG: Was wide and willing for third when making local debut in most recent start; speed to stay in touch with

pace is useful.

HOW FANCY: Typically breaks sharp, and should begin to put that early foot to good use in lower-end claiming sprints; from

solid Robb barn.

KIMON: Rallied wide for third in local debut when returned from brief break; only improves.

LION LAD: Lagged early and never got on track in latest, but should improve following initial experience versus

winners; Feliciano barn finds right spot.

MADDY’S PARTNER: Made it two straight wins in latest clear score, and figures to stay in sharp form for winning Rigattieri


NO DISPUTE: Failed to get on track as beaten favorite in latest effort, but cannot be dismissed in similar NW2L claiming

spots; like idea of route speed.

PRIVATE INDEED: Trained sharply for latest, but never really got on track when once again well supported on tote; pedigree

says route could be answer.

SOES BANDIT: Raced wide when fourth in latest, holding deceptively sharp form since return from layoff; can’t discount this

15-time winner.

WATER CANNON: Made it two straight wins when meeting winners following previous maiden score; speedy and talented

gelding whips through conditions.


4PSPECIAL: JIM THE GENT: Showed breakaway early speed before fading to third when asked to stretch

to route for first try versus winners – an overall strong effort; love upside.

LONGSHOT: PRIVATE LEAR: Has shown ability to stay in touch early, but has faded in stretch run of both career route

starts; King claim pans out on turn back in distance.
