HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BOMBER BOY: Educational third in his debut for the dangerous Nick Zito barn. From the first crop of red-hot sire Bernardini.
COOKS FOREST: Posted a 20-1 upset versus maiden claimers at seventh asking, then held his own at 12-1 to complete the superfecta against starter allowance foes. Starting to catch on.
ENDURING STAR: Canadian invader earned black-type as a maiden last term, and kicked off his sophomore season with a rallying third at double-digit odds. Ready to shine.
HAVELOCK: Has returned with a pair of solid efforts this term after disappearing last June. Best is yet to come third chance off the vacation.
PERSUADING: Rock solid filly from the Dale Romans barn has run quite well in defeat this season since concluding 2010 with a runaway Churchill allowance tally. Her big moment is coming soon.
RUN JASMINE RUN: Exceeded expectations in her debut, filling the second slot at 21-1. Werblin filly delivers for low-profile barn.
4 STAR SPECIAL: FUNNY SUNNY: Turned in a tour-de-force against allowance foes while making her second start after switching hands. Looking like a graded stakes filly for the Hess Jr. barn.
LONGSHOT: MALIBU MIKE: Has turned in some sneaky good races at big prices in some of his recent efforts at Gulfstream. Give him a shot.
DOVE FOREST: Raced a bit greenly in the early stages in her debut, but got it together late to complete the exacta at 12-1. From the very dangerous Jerry Hollendorfer barn.
FREE LOVIN’: Lifer maiden has every chance of hitting the board at a huge price. Stranger things have happened at the $8k maiden claiming level.
MARSKY’S PRIDE: Hasn’t gotten picture taken since November maiden win, but has been training smartly following fifth-place finish at $4k. Worth taking a shot at a price.
OLD WAY: Steady basement claimer is overdue for a victory. Makes amends for second-place finish as the slight favorite last time.
POSSE POWER: Back classy son of Posse needed one off the layoff going six furlongs in mid-February. Expecting a better effort at two turns next time.
RED HOT CHARLOTTE: Can’t wait to see this Unusual Heat mare get back on grass. Freshened since a pair of disappointing efforts over the all-weather.
STREET CAR: Racing himself into shape since returning from a July layoff in December. Ready to clear his first allowance condition.
TWO THIRDS VICTORY: Handles both surfaces and has plenty of in-the-money finishes at double-digit odds in her recent form. Belongs in your exotic wagers.
4 STAR SPECIAL: LADY RAILRIDER: Bats for a very high average, especially at Golden Gate. Versatile six-year-old mare has all the options in the world; get in line.
LONGSHOT: ROSEMOUNT LAD: Put together back-to-back wins not that long ago, and keeps running decent races without hitting the board. Comes in under the radar.
