HORSES TO WATCH
DREAM IN THE DARK: Raced wide and rallied for the show dough when cut back to main track sprint off turf route most recently; sharper for next time, so use.
IM ASHAMED: Has been in sharp form since back from June-layoff, most recently posting a sharp front-running score with something left; right back for trainer M. Fales.
WISH ME LUCK: Put in an inside run and flattened a bit when a distant fourth in her latest, just her second start back from brief respite; can move up at square ticket.
BLAST’EM: Battled on the pace and didn’t have enough in the lane when third in getting back to turf in his latest; must respect his early speed with similar groups.
SUMMER SIZZLE: Made it three straight victories with another sprint tally on Nov. 26 as the favorite; consistent filly is now four-for-eight lifetime, so stay with her.
GOOD MANGO: Made the pace when stretched in distance and moved to turf for the first time and stayed on to finish second best; maiden win awaits.
4*SPECIAL: FOREVERINTIME: Lacked a rally along the inside when a fair fourth in his latest, but was moving from turf to dirt; sharper for next time to get score.
LONGSHOT: QUE SERA SERA: Chased from a distance, moved to challenge, and faded when it counted in fourth-place try when back on green in her latest; helps price for next time.
SARATOGA BOUND: Overcame some trouble to put forth a bit of a run and gain third at route of ground in debut run; daughter of Bernardini should move forward off the experience.
BAYOU MISS: Chased the pace and weakened to fifth when up in class off a prior win at HOO in her return from break; bounces back in a hurry.
SHORE DO: Put in a middle move and continued on in fair enough order when third in his first attempt since early-October; stay with proven veteran from D. Romans barn.
DEVIL TRAIN: Chased the pace and then battled inside en route to acceptable third-place finish on jump back to ALW level most recently; can stay sharp now.
MR SATURDAY: Managed third after giving chase throughout a very productive racing debut in which he broke from post position 10 in a field of 12; juvenile to follow for E. Kenneally barn.
LA CAPELLA: Raced forwardly early, albeit wide, and gave out to finish seventh when well supported at tote for turf route debut; commands another shot for trainer S. Asmussen.
NECK ‘N NECK: Gave steady rally to edge away in the lane and score maiden victory at a handsome $42 ticket to win; continues to develop, just can’t expect continued value like that.
NAJJAAR: Finished third with a bold wide run in his latest, and although a maiden after four starts he has shown potential; next time, he is up in time for trainer D. Peitz.
BRIDGE LOAN: Raced wide and in fairly even fashion when a useful sixth of 11 in his racing debut; son of Empire Maker figures to have some upside as he stretches out for always dangerous T. Pletcher.
4*SPECIAL: SHERIFF SILVERSTAR: Lagged early and got moving too late when fourth on move back to main track most recently; improves for winning K. McPeek barn.
LONGSHOT: LEATHERWOOD (IRE): Gave a belated run to finish sixth of 10 in his first start since win in Ireland in September; upside for D. Miller barn.
