HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
SEE ME PROUD: Was in good form heading into his last start in an off the turf event, was outrun early on, made a middle move to get into contention but faded late, follow this one right back over the turf.
LA BELLA CHABELLA: Was sent off at 27-1 in her career debut, she made a big move up the inside to take over the lead into the lane but tired some late to finish third for a low profile barn, give this one a shot in a similar spot.
ALL MINE TONIGHT: Took some money early on for her debut, drifted up to 14-1 at post time, was in contention early on over a muddy/sealed track but tired to finish 8th and last, hails from the James Jerkens barn and should improve second time out.
LET ME ENTERTAIN U: Returned from a July layoff last out and was trying the turf for the first time, was outrun early on over a yielding course but didn’t make any impact checking in seventh at 61-1, give this one a shot back over the dirt at long odds.
MONTANA NATIVE: Showed some speed early on in her debut, she took over into the turn but tired in the lane to finish third behind a very interesting prospect, should improve off that effort for the McPeek barn.
FLATOUT ROYAL: Has been in good form of late, move up to face a decent field of $20k claimers in an off the turf race and checked in a close-up fourth at 32-1; respect this runner right back in a similar race.
GULFPORT: Was a maiden running in a Grade II stakes last out, was knocked off stride at the start, moved outside down the backstretch, rushed up to challenge the leaders while very wide and understandably tired in the lane to finish fifth; very talented two year old won’t be a maiden for long.
TERMINUS: Ran a good third two back off the layoff and then followed that up with another solid third place effort, pressing the pace of the favorite into the lane before tiring just a bit late for the show, should be all set next out, tab.
FREEDOM CHILD: Was purchased for $350,000 as a yearling, was sent off at 12-1 as part of an entry, got away in sixth early on, came with a four wide run on the turn to get into a striking spot but flattened out in the lane to finish 8th, should improve a ton off that effort.
DAN AND SHEILA: Three year old has some backclass to call on, was dropped into a claimer three back and just missed, was claimed out of that race and scored a game victory by a neck, was claimed again, moved up and ran well to finish third at 22-1, sharp now, follow.
BEST BET: KATZ MY SONG: Was returning from a January layoff last out, didn’t show his usual early speed racing near the back of the pack and never really got going checking in sixth at 3-1; looked like he needed that race and should be all set next out.
LONGSHOT: GINNY’S CLASSIC: Four year old filly came out of the gate running last out, set a solid pace over a yielding turf course but couldn’t hold on through the lane checking in fourth easily outlasting the other pace rivals, tab at a price.
HALLISTIC: Made her third start over the turf last out when breaking from the rail, set a pressured pace through solid fractions of 22:1, 44:3 before tiring some late in the lane to finish fourth, could be all set now at a square price right back.
AUNTIE MARTHA: Broke from the rail in her career debut over the turf, had to check in close quarters and never really menaced checking in fourth late, is probably looking for more ground and should be all set with that race under her belt.
DON DADDA: Four year old gelding moved up to face off against allowance foes last out, showed good early speed but tired in the lane to finish fifth at 27-1; needs a drop back into a claimer, follow.
TRIBAL VERSE: Shipped in from Mountaineer when trying the turf for the first time last out, stalked the leaders from the outside, moved to take over the lead past the half but couldn’t hold on late checking in a solid third, must respect this runner right back in a similar spot.
MISTY IN MALIBU: Was a wire to wire winner in her debut which came over the turf, came out running last out in her first try with winners, setting a very fast pace but couldn’t finish it off tiring to fourth, is a threat to take them all the way right back.
BEST BET: BRAVO ROMEO: Took a drop in class last out, stalked the leaders from third, moved out into the lane and drew away smartly to score by seven lengths, hard hitting four year old was claimed out of that race and can string a few in a row together, key in all your exotics, solid.
LONGSHOT: BIG CODE: Has been off form since April but definitely turned it around last out when showing good early speed, putting away the second choice and then holding on very well for second at 78-1, may be back in form now, tab at a price.
