HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


LOUISIANA DOWNS

MISSIN HOME: Most recently showed some late gain outside to pick up fourth and form seems headed in the right direction through three starts since back from break; sharper next time.

TEXAS CITY THOR: Rallied for second in spite of being carried six wide turning for home, and appears likely to be able to handle a similar NW2L group before long; should still offer value.

SAINT BREESY: Needed 11 starts to leave the maiden world, but was making just her third career start on turf when a strong three-length winner over 10 opponents in her latest; right back.

SUSPECT SARA: Dueled between rivals and weakened to fourth in her latest; clear early shake could do the trick with lower-end claiming types at NW2L level.

GIACOMO SPARKLE: Didn’t have much racing luck when in some traffic and trying to close into a soft pace when switched to the turf for the first time in her latest; improves on fourth-place effort.

I’M DEELITEFUL: Switched back to dirt for her latest, she managed third; can handle both surfaces now, but placing two back could suggest turf is the better option.

4*SPECIAL: TRAIN TO DESTINY: Rallied outside to pick up third in his latest, but prior placing showed he is capable of more; best shot does it with similar crew.

LONGSHOT: VAMOOSE VOMANOSO: Gave a belated rally for fourth in his latest; often underneath, so a must in exotics, but also a value play to spring upset.

 

ELLIS PARK

BIRD COUNTY: Flattened a bit when it counted in third-place effort most recently, but does appear headed in right direction through three races of experience; race over course leads to maiden score.

DAKOTA DIM: Managed fourth behind blowout winner when back from March-layoff, and didn’t have the best racing luck (“bumped start, four wide”); next time.

BRINK OF WAR: Fought on the pace and stayed on to finish a close third when in from CD and cut back to sprint trip for his latest; sharper for next time.

BOW TO NO ONE: Chased in second throughout when able to give a nice account in her first start since late-April; daughter of Nobiz Like Shobiz breaks out next time.

RUSTICANA: Raced in tight early, chased from a distance, and weakened to finish fourth of six in her first start since early-April and just second start since January; moves forward.

HONEY C: Battled throughout, drifted, and just missed when second, beaten a nose, in her latest when moved to turf; another shot.

MISTY JO: Gained late for third in good effort when back on turf for her latest; has been on the board in eight of 13 career starts thus far.

CAPETOWN REBEL: Gave fair account for third when in with winners for the first time following solid maiden score on July 5; next time.

PLENTY O’TOOLE: Lived up to favored billing when she raced just off the pace, took over, and drew out to score by nearly 10 lengths in her latest; on to bigger and better.

4*SPECIAL: ARCHIE TRUCKER: Chased wide in second throughout in a game try on July 21 when back on relatively short notice considering he won off eight-month layoff in prior July 5 start; stays sharp.

LONGSHOT: ROLL N SHINE: Rallied wide and through some traffic to finish a more than acceptable fifth, beaten just more than three lengths, in his latest; might light up board.
