HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


PHILADELPHIA

ALOWMDAH: Needed a race off a 10-month layoff, and didn’t run poorly for fourth on 3/15. Prepped

and ready now.

BRIGHTER BLUE: Outran 18-1 odds for third despite getting caught in a three-length-gap speed duel and setting the race

up for a favored deep closer.

CASINO RAIDER: Got hooked and cooked in a three-length-gap duel for the lead and tired as a result. Still looms a

speed threat.

DUCATI DEMON: Broke very slowly to lose his best chance, but then rallied strongly for second behind a repeat winner.

Tough back vs. nw1x allowance foes.

JOHNNY CORVETTE: Broke slowest in a 10-horse field and actually did a good job to close for third at 19-1 odds. Can

rebound vs. similar.

JURAMENTO: Toss out last-place finish when he got KO’d in a speed duel. May be a bargain price after two straight

eighth-place finishes.

OUR POP: Benefitted from a good pace set-up but didn’t get a clean trip when blocked in traffic while trying to rally.

Worth another chance.

SATAN’S CODE: Got off to a slow start and then fell even farther out of it after steadying in traffic behind horses. Still

finished third just a length behind the odds-on favorite.

WHAT FUHR: Was too close up to a fast pace but still held on for fourth while outrunning 28-1 odds. Chance at a

huge price.

 

4STARSPECIAL: TOSAYHOWMUCHICARE: Bobbled and blew the start to lose all chance in a five furlong sprint. Still

finished third against a tough field and should rebound next time with a clean break.

LONGSHOT: SALE THE ATLANTIC: Got cooked in an eye-popping :21.1 and :44.2 speed duel and finished fifth as

the favorite as a result. Try again.

 

 

GOLDEN GATE

ANDREA’S ANGEL: Wanted no part of the stretch out in distance March 19. Tab on the cut back to

six panels.

CLONAKILTY ROSE: Showed added interest when stretched to one mile. Looking good off that third-place finish

at 23-1.

DEJA VOODOO: All systems are a go based on the :47 2/5 four-furlong bullet workout at Golden Gate March 23.

DEMON WARLOCK: Back classy runner made it three wins in a row with a narrow victory March 19. Nothing can stop

him now.

DIXIE ROCKER: NZ-bred surprised many with a game second-place finish off since June in her first start in this

country. Good luck getting 12-1 again!

FREE RENT: Ran third as the even-money chalk making first start since Dec. 31. Faced better at Santa Anita and

Del Mar; tab.

HEAVENLY MEETING: Must be forgiven for latest effort. Saddle slipped at the start and the rider was forced to pull

up after a quarter mile. Right back on the sod.

MASTER HEAT: Pressed the pace and faded to finish sixth shipping in from Southern California. Better things come

with the right approach.

MISS MISBEHAVIN’: Keeps running respectable efforts at prices, so it’s not the end of the world that she hasn’t won

since 2002. Use underneath in the gimmicks.

PASSION CAT: Has run some decent races at prices in her last couple. Will outrun her odds at the current level.

SPRING ACT: Most recently second at odds-on, but don’t hold it against him. Never off the board in five career starts;

moves up off the John Martin claim.

TURNBERRY CONDO: Speedy gelding can become very dangerous if he learns how to rate. Starter allowance

foes beware.

 

4STARSPECIAL: PINBALL RICH: Lightly raced four-year-old has been very impressive in both of his starts. First out he

broke in the air and closed to be third and last time he dueled throughout and held on for second. Ready to earn diploma.

LONGSHOT: HIT THE PRESS: Normally pretty solid at prices if you can excuse her latest effort (fourth, beaten 9 3/4 lengths).

Must include this mare on all your tickets versus $3,200 taggers.
