HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BAY POINT COUNTESS: Doesn’t like getting her picture taken, but keeps threatening to run a big one without hitting the board. Hoping to get a price on this Bernstein filly.
CANAIMA: Has either won or placed in seven out of her last eight attempts. Need we say more?
COCO TOP: In a real good groove in his last three trips to post, including a win at 18-1. Very hard to ignore him at the current level.
FIRE FALLS: Sprung to life with a second-place finish at 12-1, then failed to take to turf when ninth. Gets back on track on dirt.
HIT THE CYCLE: Has completed the trifecta at 40-1 and 17-1 in two out of his last three starts. Ready to knock one out of the park.
MARTINI MADNESS: Has come a long way since graduating for a $25k tag in July. Stakes-placed juvenile is out for respect.
BEST BET: DUBAI DISTINCTION: Has done nothing but collect winner’s circle photos since changing hands for $5k in July. Take whatever price they give you.
LONGSHOT: YELLOW BRICK ROAD: Like his third-place finish at 12-1 a couple of starts back, and recent fifth at double-digits wasn’t that bad either. Give him a shot.
DEMANDING DIVA: Giving every sign that she’s ready to post her first win of the season following a pair of strong second-place finishes. Make the play.
EASY LADDIE: Rallied from last of eight to place a very respectable fourth in his debut. Son of Stormy Jack won’t remain in the maiden ranks for long.
HOT TUB AARON: Plenty of chances, but knocking on the door for a while. Gets one last shot to make it happen versus $8k maiden claimers.
METTLER STATION: Cleared his n3L condition, then ran a strong fourth at 24-1 in an open $5k claimer. This gelding is a pretty tough customer.
NIP OF GOLD: SoCal shipper starts with a clean slate here, despite her dismal record. Strong third at 16-1 in local unveiling.
SIS’S SIS: Emerald invader ran well in her local debut to place fourth, but didn’t fare quite as well in her next attempt in a tough allowance. Capable of better.
SWEETLY PEPPERED: A little time off following a tough 12-race campaign did this filly wonders, nearly stealing an allowance at 14-1. Loves Golden Gate too.
TURBULET CREEK: Sprung to life with a well-beaten second at 42-1 in early October going 5 ½ furlongs and recently reported home a decent fifth at 35-1 while trying two turns. An upset is in the making.
BEST BET: HALO DOLLY: Minus the disappointing effort at Parx in the Cotillion, this filly does nothing but win. Handles turf, dirt and synthetic as well; pretty scary.
LONGSHOT: TAHOE BLUES: Three out of his last four starts: third at 54-1, second at 17-1 and most recently fourth at 31-1. It’s time to get on board folks.
