HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


HAWTHORNE

BOLTIN’ BRIAN: Stepped up in class and gave better performance for third in recent local debut; Florida invader is a son of Broad Brush and

likely to improve with racing.

FLEMISH CAP: Easily led throughout to take his third straight most recently; staying on this bandwagon for barn that currently can’t do any

wrong this meet.

GLITTER MAID: Figures primed for move forward now with a pair of starts under her saddle since returning from useful and brief break; expect

more speed.

NOT A BAD BOY: Comes from winning outfit and is likely to catch the right group of restricted maidens before long; rounding to better form since

return from break.

SPRUCE LAKE: Lightly raced 4YO figures primed for best start yet in third start of current form cycle; fair sprint effort could have him set for

first route try.

STONEWAY: Chased and could not match top pair in latest, but did bounce back from stopping effort when trying route in prior start; talent

is there.

STORM THE BEACH: Rallied for second after breaking slow once again in latest – note, tricky rail post could not have helped; due some racing

luck and diploma.

WEST SIDE MARIA: Hasn’t gotten on track versus allowance company since return to local scene, but can step up with move to claiming and/or

turf contests.

 

4STARSPECIAL: SPIRITUALLY: Rallied for a distant third in race dominated by Sandbagger Jones, and should only improve upon course

debut made when returning from layoff.

LONGSHOT: BROKEN JAW: Flashed good early speed and tired late to finish third in first attempt since last-September; prolific check-getter

benefits from course return.

 

 

 

BAY MEADOWS

APOLLO TREASURE: Winless in eight attempts, but has really run only one bad race to date. Must include her in your

exotics wagers.

CLONAKILTY ROSE: Much better since stretching to one mile. Try and get some value on this gal; maiden claimers.

CYCLE OF LIFE: It looks like a drop down in class will be necessary in order for this filly to get it done. Get some bang for

your buck.

DON’T STOP NOW: Improved a ton to be third in her first attempt shipping in from Southern California. Fits like a glove here.

I’LL SURVIVE: Set the early splits, then faded to finish a well-beaten fourth on the stretch out to one mile. Give her another shot if cut

back in distance.

MCKENNAN: Broke slowly from the one-hole while third in his debut. Can build off that effort and move forward.

RING OF FRIENDSHIP: Exited the maiden ranks with a sharp four-length score Apr. 4. Ready for winners on the turf.

ROYAL ROBEY: Proved he could handle the next level with a second-place finish at 31-1. Won’t see that price again, but can still

offer value.

SHIRAZBERRY: Opened up a 10-length lead at the half-mile pole, before tiring to finish second beaten four lengths. Speed always

makes this mare dangerous.

SUPER STREAK: Nine-year-old tried turf for the first time in his latest attempt and finished a modest seventh. Returns to his winning

ways back on the dirt.

TWELVEYEARSLATER: Consistent runner clearly needed her latest returning from the lengthy layoff. Should be backed accordingly

in a similar spot.

TWOTIMINSMOKESTER: Sharp in his first two, then got crushed when stepped up to $16,000 taggers. Playable for a $8,000 tag.

 

4STARSPECIAL: BAILEY’S YODELER: Was given only a 7-1 chance to win at first asking, but smoked ‘em by five lengths after

setting :21 2/5 and :44 4/5 fractions. Must follow right back.

LONGSHOT: HONEY FLOWER: Took a major step forward running sixth at 46-1 last time after the 12th-place finish first time

out. Steady progress.
