HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
CATTY PATTY: Basement claimer can be dangerous at double digits if she runs back to some of her form at Tampa earlier this season. Include underneath in the gimmicks.
DALYA: Nice debut effort at 11-1 to finish fourth after breaking from the difficult one post. Keep a close eye on this daughter of Werblin.
FLYING APTITUDE: Donald Dizney homebred has rolled a pair of 3’s in his first two trips to post. David Fawkes trainee won’t remain in the maiden ranks for long.
ICY STRAIT: Can handle a wet track if necessary—see win in Gulfstream slop at 10-1 in April—and keeps showing late interest at prices on the grass. Has plenty of good points.
TROUBLES COMIN: Handles turf and dirt, and has responded with two big efforts since a brief freshening. What else can you ask for?
VODKA STONE SOUR: Resurfaced from an October layoff with a respectable third in his first attempt for a tag. Graduates versus similar for Stanley Gold.
4 STAR SPECIAL: SPLASH OF SILVER: The time on the bench hasn’t messed up this filly’s mojo one bit. Two big efforts since returning from extended layoff; keeps on rolling.
LONGSHOT: LOUISIANA WARRIOR: It wasn’t that long ago that this filly reeled off back-to-back wins, including a big payday at 54-1. Gets back on track.
NO. CAL FAIRS
ATTACK THE JACK: Surprised to see Jeff Bonde enter this filly in a tough stakes race off her debut win at $25k maiden claiming. Expecting her to be better spotted next time.
CORONA BOREALIS: Late blooming daughter of Event of the Year began her career with a respectable third-place finish. In good hands with the William Morey barn.
G R HEART: Reported home a well-beaten third in his unveiling after breaking last of nine from the dreaded one hole. Should benefit from having that one under his belt.
LORD TORRENT: Very intrigued by this maiden. Doesn’t always fire, but has run some interesting races at long odds. Can make some noise at a big price; include.
PREMIUM QUALITY: Doesn’t like to win, but sure does come close sometimes. Hard to ignore this guy completely.
RUNNING FOR JAKOB: Turf Paradise invader ran well in her local debut to place second while making her first start since December. Goes one better.
SILENT SUE: Thrown to the wolves in two stakes attempts following her Hollywood maiden win in May. Look for her in an easier spot either here or in SoCal.
WESTERN ROSES: Back-to-back wins on turf and dirt at 6-1 and 8-1 for the great Jerry Hollendorfer. Dixie Union gelding never runs a bad race.
4 STAR SPECIAL: ADAYFORPICKNDAISYS: Brief freshening has put this mare back on the right path, with a pair of second-place finishes and a win. In the zone right now.
LONGSHOT: DEFENSIVE MOVE: Seven-year-old may need a start or two to get cranked up following the layoff. More than capable versus basement claimers.
