HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
ABOUT YASOM: First-time
starter exceeded expectations with a second-place finish at 22-1 after chasing
the winner around the track. Well-spotted at $12.5k.
NOBLE: Took a nice
step forward off the claim with a second-place finish at 9-2. Overdue to get
her picture taken.
IMAGE: Plenty of
chances, but finally showed something when third at 21-1. Let’s see if she
could put two good ones together.
Took a big step
forward in his first try on dirt in an off-the-turfer at fourth asking. Heading
in the right direction.
FOUR: Broke through
with a maiden win at ninth asking at 16-1, then came right back versus winners
with a runner-up effort at 35-1. Never been better.
Showed some speed
after breaking slowly in his debut and reported home a well-beaten fourth. Nice
effort to build off.
BET: SPECIALNIGHTACTION: Put
in a good rally from the back and outgamed a rival to graduate at first asking.
Ready for winners.
UNO AGAIN: It’s been
a long time between drinks, but he continues to sneak into the mix at prices.
Can round out a nice exotic at the basement.
Turned in a nice
rally from ninth to complete the trifecta at 27-1 in her unveiling. From the
REFLECTION: If you

Classic profile of a horse that puts them back-to-back in first try at the next
level; be there.
VISTA: Has some
sneaky form and should come in under the radar following a fifth-place finish
at 42-1. You’ve been warned.
has done very little wrong in her 16-race career. Benchmark mare is as solid as
K. FORTYSIX: Winless
in 19 tries, but has stepped up his game with a return to grass in his last
three. Closer than you think.
BIG PLAY: Stakes-placed
gelding is capable over turf and synthetic, and hails from a top barn. Hard not
Anita reject has really stepped up his game since shipping to these parts.
Keeps up the good work.
BET: VINCENZA: Loves
getting her picture taken and has been quite effective going long and short
over Golden Gate’s synthetic and turf courses. Firing on all cylinders.
WOMAN IVY: Failed to find prior form when returned from lengthy layoff
earlier this term, but has been re-freshened for another crack at it. Worth a shot
at right price.
