HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
SHE’S A SWEETIE: Rated, rallied to a three-length stretch lead, and then held for a nose victory as the choice in her latest; 10-time winner knows how to get it done, so she stays on our tickets.
ARIAT GOLD: Gave too little, too late when third in her latest, but peg the move an improved effort from the 5YO mare; worth using in exotics at square ticket next time.
COUNT OF NOTIA: Rated and rallied inside to drive clear for a 1 ½-length maiden score most recently; right back with winners in reasonable spot in upcoming third start of current form cycle.
SADLER POWER: Has fell flat in a pair of starts since re-claimed for $3K by trainer B. Sipp, but was hung wide in the drive when sixth in his latest; another shot.
TWO POINT TONY: Rated and rallied wide to be along for third in his latest; proven veteran has been in the exacta in 13 of 28 lifetime trips, so keep him on your tickets.
MARKMELAURAS: Battled on the pace and faded in the lane to finish fourth when making her first start since last-March most recently; classy mare is a must-use.
4*SPECIAL: CRANTINI: Overcame a rocky start to put in a big finish for second when in with winners for the first time in her latest; stay on board for trainer B. Heads.
LONGSHOT: KAFWAIN SECRET M D: Lagged early, but did improve position through the lane when an acceptable fourth on drop in class most recently; sharper for next time, having turned back a great deal in distance for latest.
RATATAT: Could only manage an even fourth off a wide journey when back on synthetic ground for new connections most recently; moves forward in a hurry now.
HELLIECAT: Raced slow early and then wide en route to fourth-place finish when after repeat following prior win in return from absence; next time for trainer J. Cook.
TRUE JEAN: Chased wide and lacked finishing bid when a fair fourth in her first start since last-December most recently; eight-time winner shows improvement next time.
B B THE KING: Showed the way on the pace and remained clear en route to a one-length maiden score most recently; can keep good form for owner/trainer N. Rennekamp.
REBEL RAIDER: Raced wide and put forth a belated bid to finish fourth as the beaten favorite on a class rise most recently; stay with son of Monarchos from W. Connelly barn.
SIX PACK ABS: Put in a wide middle-move to contend and then faded to finish fifth when taking noteworthy class drop back to claiming company most recently; next time for 12-time winner.
KARLIE’S HOLIDAY: Chased and weakened to finish fourth from wide spot in synthetic return most recently; winning McPeek barn finds the right spot next time.
WILD CHIC: Rallied wide and late to be along for third in her latest; mare is only one-for-18 lifetime, but latest effort suggests form is on uptick since moved to this track three starts back.
COALINGA: Blasted clear on the pace and held nice stretch edge when a 1 ½-length winner in her latest; veteran’s speed always makes her a player with cheapies on sprint scene.
4*SPECIAL: CANOOK: Stumbled at the break and put in a wide run to be along for second behind easy winner when game in his latest; next time.
LONGSHOT: INDI’S CANDY: Has given better efforts over the course of her last two starts since blinkers were added, most recently fourth off a wide spot on the turn; still offers value.
