CARLY’S A TWIN TOO: Ran one of her best races to date when third beaten two lengths last out.
Play this filly going a flat mile.
EL CURIOSO: Ignore the dismal career record. Just take a look at those last two starts and the ground
he’s made up; he’s due.
FIVE STAR MEETING: Returned from October with a game wire-to-wire victory after dueling through fast fractions.
Shoot for the stars!
KILGOWAN: Gained valuable experience with a fourth-place finish in the Golden State Mile S. Feb. 8. Looking good
for sharp connections.
MARY CASSATT: Was aggressively spotted in an allowance contest while running ninth in her debut. Drysdale trainee
should be awfully dangerous up against maidens with that start under her belt.
NOBLE SILENCE: Has flashed sharp speed in his last two, but has tired badly. Back classy colt may need another drop down
in order to get it done.
PIPES DREAMCATCHER: Like what he’s shown in his first two races, including a solid third last time out. All set to graduate.
RIVER ELLA: Broke her maiden versus allowance company on the turf at 29-1. Filly has always been solid on the lawn; don’t
get burned again.
SANDS OF TIME: Ran well to be fifth after an uneventful beginning (bumped and forced into a rival). Tallies up another one on
TENDER TRAP: Had her two-race win streak snapped when overmatched on the turf in latest. Will be hard to down back on the
main track versus taggers.
THISCATSKRAFTY: Normally goes off at a good number and rarely runs a bad race. Hard not to like.
WESTERN HAWK: Just hasn’t been the same horse since returning from the layoff two starts back. Willing to give him another shot
though at the right price.
4STARSPECIAL: TREVANIAN: Won with something left in his maiden victory Feb. 8. Tab this son of Conquistador Cielo at the
LONGSHOT: MAGNETIC HILL: Zero-for-18 runner is going to move forward second start off the three- month layoff. McAnally will have
CHRISTIAN GULCH: Showed improvement to gain for fourth when making second start back from break of more than two months; needs
hot pace to set up rally.
CREEKER’S SURPRISE: Raced a bit greenly yet still rallied for place when facing 10 rivals in career debut; 3YO filly worth
HOW GOOD IS THAT: Chased and faded in latest, but in first start since last-July; extremely well-bred colt is lightly raced 3YO and with
that comes plenty of upside.
ONE SPECIAL JUDGE: Could only manage an even stretch bid when fourth in latest start, but was claimed by winning Norman barn; onward
ROYAL CHALICE: Can build off local debut, in which he managed fourth when racing for the first time in four months; sharper workouts
lead to better effort.
RUDY’S FINEST: Made it two straight wins when handling 10 foes from tough outside post in first attempt versus winners most recently;
plenty of potential here.
SONYA’S SMILE: Has yet to finish off the board in five career starts and comes from winning Asmussen barn – enough to keep her on
your tickets, no?
TAKE HOLY OUT: Should improve after middle-move/fade try in first start since last-November; initial experience over local course a big
TEXARKANA: Has shown flashes of ability on both dirt and turf, but remains a well-bred underachiever at this stage; improves off sixth
in local debut.
TIGER SIX: Twelve-time career winner brings early sprint speed that cannot be ignored; now 4 for 7 over local strip after getting caught
in chasing role last time.
4STARSPECIAL: COUNT ORANGE: Set the pace and battled through the stretch when second in 2004 return; have always liked
this gelding’s ability.
LONGSHOT: LIFE SAVIOR: Raced in tight early and never got a chance to show her early speed making first start since last-December; improves
upon fifth-place try.
