HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


BELMONT

ANN’S QUALITY: Is well bred being by ELUSIVE QUALITY and took some early money last out before drifting up to 23-1. Was off to a

bad start but did make a decent wide move on the turn and must be respected at a big price next out.

COURTLY LOVE: Just missed the show spot last out by a nose and was much improved in her first turf try; should improve with that race

under her belt.

CRAZYLUCK: Ran well in first try over the turf despite traffic trouble down the backside and in the stretch, tab.

CRITICAL CAT: Has disappointed in both recent efforts on the turf; well bred New Yorker gets one more chance to bounce back.

DASH ‘N DANCE: Raced evenly last out when sent off at 33-1 and needs a drop in class to show his best effort.

GUY GETAWAY: Never lifted a hoof last out as the second choice when stretched out to a mile. We are willing to give him a pass and take the

price next out on any surface.

IVARS BLUES: Has always had some physical issues but when he is right he can be tough. His most recent fourth was solid and should be followed

back with NW2X New York breds.

KYLEMORE ABBEY: Just missed again by just a half length and has been in good form of late; was claimed from his last race and should be tough

to down for new barn.

MA FEMME: Had no chance last out with the ride she got trying to open up a huge lead before coming back to the field. Should be much tighter

off that race and can lead at a big price.

PLATINUM HEIGHTS: Got away cheap on the lead but could not finish it off as she tired to finish fourth in the drive. Well bred filly should bounce

back on the sod.

PUZZLE: Ran second in career debut on the turf albeit against a weak field but she can improve and must be respected with a similar crew.

RON GRESCHNER: Raced midpack throughout last time and never made a winning impact but will benefit from a switch to the turf.

SAFE FROM HARM: Added blinkers and basically was a run away on the lead setting ridiculous fractions and tired in the drive. Look for a better

timed ride next out.

SWAY OF PASSION: Ran very well off the layoff to score by a neck when coming from off the pace last out. Is out of New York bred conditions but

follow this 4YO with open company.

THE GREAT BUZZENIE: Showed good speed early on but could not go on with it and tired to finish 8th. This horse will benefit from a drop into

maiden claimers.

THECONFIDENCEMAN: Ran well in first try against New York breds on the turf and was making a solid move before getting bumped off stride.

Follow back at a price.

 

 

4STARSPECIAL: HE DID IT: Broke a step slow in career debut, rushed up to challenge for the lead and hung in fairly well to finish fourth.

Should improve with that race under his belt.

LONGSHOT: FAITH OF THE WEST: Definitely ran much better when trying the turf for the first time but still finished sixth. The price will be

right next out, tab.

 

 

DELAWARE

CALLMEFRENCHIE: Dueled early and stayed on fairly well for fifth in just the second start of his current form cycle; quick return

leads to top try.

CIRRUS MINOR: Sped clear and stopped when attempting to stretch his speed a distance of ground for the first time in his career;

rebounds on sprint scene versus cheapies.

DEAL THE CARDS: Has gone in fairly even order in pair of starts thus far; juvenile filly benefits from racing experience.

GMORK: Rated and rallied to drive clear for maiden score in latest; ability to stay closer to pace on route scene has helped, and this

colt clearly has upside.

JANE’S SECRET: Has held form well since moving into winner’s ranks; with pace throughout when third stepping up to next level in

latest and can still improve.

MARIAH’S BULLET: Found better fit with NW2L types for latest when third; first race over course can only help matters.

ROCKHEWN: Got back to sprinting and proper class level for latest, and rallied well to be second; keep a close eye on this guy.

SPANISH CASTLE: Raced wide early and chased throughout to manage an even fourth in latest; veteran mare with solid overall mark

should be included in exotics.

WARREN AVENUE: Battled on pace and held gamely to finish a narrowly beaten second in latest; claimed by trainer Mike Pino, and

well worth the $8K.

WORLDLY PLEASURE: Raced evenly in third most recently, but behind easy pace in just a five-horse field; better set-up does the trick.

 

 

4STARSPECIAL: TONELLI’S LEGACY: Like this lightly raced 5YO mare more and more as she strings starts together; speed makes

her very dangerous.

LONGSHOT: ATLANTA ROSE: Has yet to get on track in pair of starts over local strip, but figures to find right group versus NW2L types;

forward early spot helps.
