HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
ARCHIE TRUCKER: Battled from start to finish and simply came up second best when beaten just a half-length in his latest on turn back to sprint; proven sort with nice overall mark is on our tickets.
BAIL BONDSMAN: Put in a fairly even fifth-place try in his racing debut, and from wide spot in turf dash; experience helps his cause, and we’d expect more interest early and throughout next time.
GENEOLOGY GIRL: Chased throughout, found room, and was gaining late when third of five in trying to rally off a soft tempo in her latest; still with upside on turf.
HONOR ‘N STRENGTH: Shook off pace challenge and drew clear to maiden score over four opponents in his latest when in from IND; right back with winners.
IMPRESSIONIST: Pressed the pace and stayed on to finish a narrowly beaten fourth as the favorite in sharp try on turn back to sprint most recently; handles NW2L next time.
KITTY’S TURN: Shook away from pace duel, got clear, and lasted for narrow score in an improved try on class drop when in from CD most recently; repeat in sight.
LEONIDES: Pressed in second and stayed there throughout in good overall bid most recently; lightly raced 6YO is primed for bump up in upcoming third start of current form cycle.
ONE LAST NITEMARE: Settled for fourth on class rise when in search of her third straight win most recently, but her prior wins did come on tough CD circuit; back to winning ways.
STAR OF DAVID: Chased outside in third most of the way en route to third-place finish in his latest; fresh face for this season can still produce.
4*SPECIAL: DONNAGUSKA: Raced in range throughout her latest fourth-place finish when in from CD; spin over course helps mare from solid B. Cox barn.
LONGSHOT: REVELSTOKE: Settled for even sixth when trying to rebound from prior race of her life (second-place try in stakes when on turf for first time) most recently; bounces back.
LOVE’S MAGIC: Cut back to sprint and maintained an even spot most of the way when fifth of 12 at long price; intriguing for winning N. Pointer barn.
PEPPER JOANN: Made up a lot of ground when she found her stride too late in fourth-place debut run, and can build on the effort; trainer T. Woolley at controls.
POLLARD’S BOY: Showed good speed and stayed on for second in good effort when second in his racing debut; maiden win, and likely more, right in front of him around here.
SHARP DEFRERE: Chased and weakened to finish seventh at long price in his latest; is capable of more, but might need claiming company to show best.
UNIQUE ALLY: Showed some mild interest for fifth of 10 in his latest when back in town from CT; expect more early and throughout in similar spots with cheapies.
4*SPECIAL: LION IN THE SUN: Hit some traffic and settled for third as the beaten favorite in her latest; proves a likely worthwhile $16K-claim for trainer B. Kulp as a mare who can handle any surface.
LONGSHOT: KAZ DEAR: Chased from the inside and weakened, but did hold third of nine in an improved try when in from PRX for her latest; spot where she can make the pace could prove key.
