HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BAD NEWS CAPTAIN: A distant fourth in his unveiling going six furlongs, this Imperialism colt ran much better in his second attempt when stretching to a mile. Gets his picture taken.
CACHETONE: Pico Central (Brz) mare has gotten her act together in her last two trips to post, finishing a close fifth on grass at 28-1 and third on dirt most recently. Very playable.
CAROLINA LIZARD: Two solid third-place finishes since returning from the shelf. Ready to graduate at the $12.5k offering.
CIGUARAYA: Latent Heat filly has only one bad race under belt. Proved she can turf in latest and runner-up finish in Tampa’s Suncoast S. was solid; go in heavy.
DREAMING OF DANNY: Quietly made up some ground in his debut, then moved forward to finish fifth when dropped in for a $35k tag. War Front colt is heading in the right direction.
SIN FRENO: Drop to $10k and return to dirt woke this filly up with a third-place finish at 13-1. Bobbled at the start that day too; take note.
BEST BET: LIVINGSTON STREET: Showed instant improvement off the Peter Walder claim, getting the job done in a $40k tagger. Has some back class; can get hot in a hurry.
LONGSHOT: WILD EXCHANGE: More than her fair share of chances, but does like to come motoring late at prices on occasion. Ready to run wild.
A LITTLE POLISH: Fifth-place finish at 56-1 a couple of starts back is worth a second look. Watch out if this mare feels like running. Bomb away!
BAD GIRL BAD GIRL: Continues to put forth solid efforts without getting her picture taken. Dueled and stayed on for second in latest; goes one better.
BRAVE TALK: Turf Paradise shipper held her own in a tough starter allowance following a debut $25k tally. Backs up our words.
DENNIS MAC: Followed a debut fifth at 63-1 with a well-beaten third after showing more speed. On his way.
NOISE OF THE CROWD: Can get it done over either surface and owns dangerous speed. Consistently either first or second; get in line.
PIANA MAN: Didn’t make the races until his 5-year-old season, but certainly looked well worth the wait after airing by five lengths in his debut. Stays perfect.
SPORT KING: Capable of better than he’s produced in his last three trips to post. Knocked out back-to-back wins prior to freshening; gets his mojo back.
TUDI BE TRU: Exceeded expectations at 30-1 in her unveiling and has been training smartly since. From the Greg James barn.
BEST BET: EARLY FALL: Really starting to round into form against basement claimers. Ready to clear her n2L condition.
LONGSHOT: UNCOMMON SENSE: Plenty of chances, but has stepped up in some of his recent form. Get a price and go with it.
