HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
DISCO JENELLE: Sent off as the longest shot in the race last out, broke from the rail, was outrun early on behind a solid early pace and closed well to finish third, fits with basement foes right back, especially at a price.
SEVENTY NINER: Tried the turf for the first time last out but didn’t do much running checking in sixth after being outrun early on behind solid fractions, a moved back to the dirt is in order and a drop in class may do as well.
VICTOR’S BOY: Raced in ninth early on after getting outrun, started a run at the top of the lane and passed a few horses checking in a well beaten fifth at 22-1; that was just his second race back off a November layoff and could off value right back.
KETUBAH: Six year old mare was outrun early on behind moderate splits last out, closed strongly through the lane to finish a solid third at 20-1; has been in good form of late and just needs a bit more pace up front.
OTOMAI: Showed good speed last out when returning from a March layoff last out, lead to the top of the lane but couldn’t finish it off checking in fourth at 13-1; should be tighter next out and the value is there.
FUZZY MUZZLE: Was returning from a September layoff last out and making just his second career start, chased the pace from third, moved into contention into the lane and showed determination to get up for the win as the 5-2 second choice, fits with winners right back for the Jane Cibelli barn.
BEST BET: MYPRINCESSALLYSON: Was claimed two back by a solid barn, closed some ground through the lane to finish fourth just missing the show spot late, should only get better off that effort and offers value right back.
LONGSHOT: JENNIFER’S ROMEO: Was off since February heading into her last start, she got away in fourth racing behind a solid early pace and stayed on well to finish an even fourth at 25-1; needed that race and fits with NW2L $5k claimers.
FLYING STONE: Was off since September 2010, shipped in from Poland, chased the early pace from second over the turf and stayed on well for third late, should be all set right back.
HILLBILLY TRICK: Hails from a barn that has been having a very tough 2012, going 0 for the first 56 races, chased the pace from the outside, was still there into the lane and battled to the finish checking in third at 81-1 behind the runaway odds-on winning favorite, use this one in all exotics right back at a price.
DANGEROUS CASEY: Another import from Poland, this three year old colt ran on evenly through the lane to finish fifth at 7-2; is bred to handle the dirt as well and should be given another shot on that surface.
HOLIDAY BOY: Is better on the dirt and was in over his head last out racing against allowance runners, has some tactical speed and a drop in class and a surface switch will do.
BOY ROMA: Hails from a barn that doesn’t do well in their debut efforts, sent off at 4-1 from the rail, was unhurried early on but could do no better than an even fifth; fits with $5k maiden claimers and should move forward off that race.
BEST BET: PEWTER: Came out running last out in just his second start off a year layoff, cleared off early on through a solid half mile but tired in the lane to finish third behind the favorite, should be all set now.
LONGSHOT: GLASS PATH: Hasn’t shown much over the last two years, put in two poor efforts so far this year but did put in an improved effort when stretching out in distance getting into contention at the top of the lane but tired to finish third late behind the odds-on favorite, stay close.
