HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
CAPIVARA: Well bred three
year old filly was sluggish at the start, moved up into contention down the
backside, raced three wide into the far turn but couldn’t go with the leaders
late checking in seventh, should improve off that effort and must be followed
back for the Pletcher barn.
CHARDSEY: Moved back to the
turf last out, got away in seventh early on, made a good move to get into
second behind the leader into the lane but couldn’t go by holding on well for a
clear second, fits with restricted claimers right back.
MADRE DITUTTICAPI: Tried the turf for
the first time last out, set a sharp early pace from the start and into the
lane but couldn’t finish it off tiring to third late at 13-1; fits nicely with
$35k maiden claimers over the turf and can wire similar right back.
KEEP ME INFORMED: Finally got a pace
to run at last out after trailing the field of six early on, moved up inside on
the turn and rolled on by the leaders late to score by more than three lengths
at 23-1; follow right back with similar especially with a pace up front.
POLITICAL JUSTICE: Four year old colt
came out running for the lead last out when trying the turf for just the second
time, gave up the lead and chased the frontrunner to the top of the lane but
tired in the lane to finish sixth at 11-1; a slight turnback on any surface is
ELIZABETH’S FLAIR: Three year old
filly was sent off at 8-1 for her debut against statebred maiden $20k claimers,
moved wide to challenge for the lead, put a head in front into the lane but
couldn’t finish it off tiring to finish a close-up fourth, will be tough to
beat at the same level right back.
DEVOTED WILDCAT: Four year old
gelding came out running last out, chased a very sharp pace while wide, was
still there into the lane but tired some late to finish sixth at 23-1; has some
backclass to call on and the price will be right.
DO I AMUSE YOU: Three year old
gelding chased the sharp pace early on when trying the winners for the first
time last out, couldn’t go with the leaders and tired to finish seventh, a move
to the turf could be in order, tab.
DOC CEBU: Three year old
gelding moved into the Todd Pletcher barn last out and tried the turf for the
first time, showed speed, took over that lead into the lane but couldn’t hold
off the two favorites late checking in a solid third, should only get better
LITTLE WYATT: Was making just his
second start since last June last out, broke out at the start, chased the
leaders while four wide, was still wide into the lane and tired to finish sixth
at 12-1; a slight drop in claiming price will do.
PREVIOUS: Well-bred three
year old filly from the Juddmonte/Bill Mott team, broke well, chased a very
sharp pace to the top of the lane and tired a bit lately to finish fourth about
eight lengths off the winner; should be very tough right back and is bred to
handle the turf as well.
BEST BET: ROSIE’S SONG: Took some early money for
her debut before drifting up to 12-1 at post time, moved up four wide on the
backside to challenge the leaders and was still there into the lane before
tiring to finish sixth, should move way up off that effort and must be followed
LONGSHOT: NOOSH’S TALE: Well bred runner does own
a win over the turf, his only win in seven tries, was outrun early on behind
solid splits over the turf, moved out into the lane and finished up very well
for fourth at 41-1; should improve off that effort and could be very tough
right back with NW1X statebred allowance company, follow.
SPECIAL SONG: Five year old
gelding is very fast early on, has been working well in the a.m. over this
track and should relish this surface, follow this runner right to the windows.
DELIBURNSKY: Jersey bred has
only had one start so far this year and that was back in February, has run a
few big races over this track and is working well to prepare for this meeting
and should be followed.
MAJOR SCORE: Five year old
gelding finally broke through to break his maiden in his 15th career
start back in March at Gulfstream, was claimed that day and should fit well
with restricted winners, tab.
UNLEASH THE HUMOR: Five year old
gelding knows how to win and loves this game with nine wins from 41 tries, has
25 in the money finishes from 41 tries and hails from sharp barn, working well
in a.m. and looks to be all set now.
TUNE ME IN: Six year old
gelding has the backclass to call on, has five wins and all of those wins have
come over this turf course, hasn’t been seen since late last year but is working
with a purpose in the mornings and must be followed right back.
BEST BET: OUR YEAR: Five year old filly has only
run 11 times in her career with three wins, three seconds and one third, shows
a few big wins over this track and looks primed for this meeting, be there.
LONGSHOT: SILENT APPEAL: All four of his wins
have come over this track and has won sprinting and going long, comes off a did
not finish back in October, but does have a bunch of works in preparation for
