HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
PHILADELPHIA (PARX RACING)
LEAD ME LORD: Closed some ground late in the drive to finish about a half-length off the winner while checking in third behind the two favorites, fits with $15k claimers and is sitting on a win, stay close.
CUVEE MADAME: Had run a few good races over the Summer, had been off form of late heading into her last start but put in a very solid effort just missing late by a head and a nose checking in third at 31-1, respect this runner as she may be round back to form.
GRAND MIZ BLUE: Well bred four year old filly found herself in against NW2L $10k claimers last out, she made the early lead under pressure through solid fractions and drew off through the lane to score by more than five lengths, ready to start moving back up the claiming ladder.
FIVESIXSEVEN: Tried the turf for the second time last out when moving up in class and checked in an even seventh at 81-1, is better on the dirt and should be all set now, follow with a drop in class and a move back to the main track.
R PATRICIA: Shipped in from Monmouth for her last start, got away in 8th and last early on racing behind some very slow early fractions but closed very well through the lane to finish third at 9-2; a better pace scenario puts this one right on the wire.
BEST BET: STORMIN BUD: Has the backclass to call on, came out running last out when dropped into a $10.5k claimer, showed good early speed while under pressure, put those early rivals away but couldn’t hold off the perfect trip second choice settling for second, gets it all next out.
LONGSHOT: KINCAID: Broke his maiden in only his second main track start at Laurel two back, moved up to face off against NW2L $16k claimers last out, made the lead while under pressure but fought gamely to the wire tiring some late to finish third at 29-1; follow right back.
COOLUSIVE: Made his first try over the turf last out but just raced evenly throughout in fourth in a decent effort, however his two dirt races were better than looked and a move back to the main track can do the trick.
SHAKE SENORA: Sent off at 6-1 for her debut last out, got in a good position behind the leaders and sharp pace but didn’t have any kick when it counted checking in fifth, is bred to handle the turf as well but should be all set in her second start, tab.
LAKE NONA: Sent off at 16-1 last out, broke from post 12, raced wide for most of the trip and hung on for fourth late beaten about six lengths, a better post should help and is a must use in all exotics.
RHONIN VICTORIA: Three year old filly was bumped around right from start last out when making her first try for the Dutrow Jr. barn checking in 12th and last, will offer some value next out off that line and follow on either surface.
RIZZI’S COMET: Is a better horse on the dirt, came out running last out over the turf, battled on the lead but tired when it counted through the lane to finish ninth and last at 67-1; give this one a shot at long odds over the main track.
ONE PRETTY CAT: Ran evenly in her debut over the dirt back at Saratoga, tried the turf last out but didn’t do much running checking in 8th at 13-1; added lasix last out and is one to follow at a price back on the dirt for sharp barn.
THIS SATURDAY: Was outrun early on behind some very solid fractions over a quick speed favoring track and couldn’t make up any ground checking in 8th, is at the right level and should be given another shot over a fairer track.
SALLY’S DREAM: This three year old filly has showed improvement with each and every turf start, making it two in a row and the first off the claim last out scoring by more than four lengths, improving runner is ready for the next level or starter allowance company as well, stay close.
CALL UP THE CHIEF: Is better sprinting on the turf but had a lot to do last out when having to come very wide into the lane and checked in sixth at 9-1; give him another chance at a solid price right back.
PRECISION FARMING: Got up to win last out when making her second start off a March layoff, closing from well back, was claimed out of that race by the Bruce Levine barn and look for her to put a few in a row together.
RECURRING DREAM: Checked in fourth last out after getting outrun early on behind solid fractions in a race dominated by the speed, can get there with similar over a more even track.
BEST BET: LOS OJITOS: Broke her maiden in solid fashion in early August, got off to a bad start and then was playing catch up over a very fast track before checking in fourth at 9-1; should be all set next out for sharp barn.
LONGSHOT: EZPZ LEMON SQUEEZE: Was returning from a February layoff last out and making her first start for a new barn, raced near the back of the pack behind moderate splits and checked in sixth late at 39-1; should improve off that effort and must be respected right back at a price.
