HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


WOODBINE

BALDACHINO: Broke from the rail, was always close-up and held on very well to finish second at 45-1; the value is

there with $25k claimers.

BLONDE EXECUTIVE: Showed good speed, battled on the lead and took over late for the score. Gets extra credit if

it is sloppy.

CUT AND SHOOT: Was always close while racing inside before angling out to score going away as the favorite; moves

through next allowance condition with a similar effort.

EMERALD EARRINGS: Dueled for the lead outside of two other horses and then drew away to score by five lengths. Will

be a handful with straight three year olds.

GOLD FELT BLUE: Was last early on last out before coming with a solid late run to just miss the win by a neck and gets

there with a solid pace.

KAIN’S DANCER: Sat midpack early on before making a solid run into second to finish second behind a wire to wire

winner. The 32-1 odds should guarantee a solid mutuel right back.

OLYMPIAN: Broke running from the rail and never looked back scoring a runaway victory to win by almost 10 lengths. Follow

up the claiming ladder.

RITTA: Chased the favorite throughout and got up to score by a neck to break her maiden and fits nicely in sprints.

WIN WIN SITUATION: Did just that, win as the favorite last out scoring over his entry mate. Well bred three year old can

improve with each start and should be considered in first try with winners.

 

4STARSPECIAL: CHOREOGRAPHY: Has speed and gameness a dangerous combo, follow right back off that solid

second place effort last out.

LONGSHOT: SNOBBY PRINCESS: May have been used up chasing a very quick pace last out and tired to fifth in the

drive. Follow with 3YO claimers.

 

DELAWARE

CHEROKEE’S BOY: Yet to regain winning form in pair of sprint tries since returning from break, but figures to stretch out

and get well in a hurry.

DATA STREAM: Needs some pace to attack with late-running style, and simply has not had the opportunity in last couple

of starts; stay with him.

ELTON: Dropped with success most recently, when blasting clear of lower-end claimers and hanging on for desperate win

late; proves worthwhile $5K-claim for trainer Pascual nonetheless.

GIMME FEVER: Failed as favorite in latest, but did go well to stay on for third after battling on hot early pace; Lake

trainee primed now.

HE’S A KNOCKOUT: Chased and stayed on evenly for fourth in hot race when returned to course off Florida lines for latest; back

on best in no time for winning Motion barn.

LUKE HILL: Managed to stay in range – albeit without threatening – when confidently spotted in class for latest sixth-place

effort; set to roll now.

SAND SLOUGH: Needs an alert start to show best following poor luck in each of two starts since return from lengthy break; lightly r

aced 4YO improves quickly.

WOOD LILY: Figures overdue for a win, but may be best used underneath to round out gimmicks at square ticket these days;

dropped in class, but took step in right direction in latest.

 

4STARSPECIAL: OUR FRIEND’S GIRL: Chased and weakened in latest, but after showing encouraging early speed given

turn back from route trip in prior start; top Motion barn gets her back on track in no time.

LONGSHOT: GRADY: Veteran always has a spot on our tickets; late-mover has 14 career wins and did not get much pace to

attack in latest yet still managed third.
