HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


PHILADELPHIA (PARX RACING)

THE MONEY ROOM: Moved into the Mario Serey Jr. barn last out, showed much improved speed leading from the start and into the lane but had to settle for second to the even money favorite while easily clear of the show horse, follow right back.

ROB THE BANK: Moved up to face off against statebred allowance company last out and making his second start over the turf, got a good spot on the rail racing in fifth, started to move into the lane but couldn’t out finish the two leaders checking in third at 39-1; follow right back over the lawn.

GRAYBIGNBADLIKEDAD: Three year old gelding moved back to the turf again last out for the third time, he got away in 10th early on and never did much running checking in 10th and last, clearly doesn’t like the turf and had been in good form over the dirt, follow right back on the main track.

DOUBLE DESERT: Had been in good from at Monmouth with two wins in a row against lesser, faced off against starter allowance foes last out, chased the pace from fourth but couldn’t get to the leaders checking in fourth at 26-1; a drop into a claimer will do the trick.

TRUMPET KAZ: Three year old filly made her debut last out against $25k maiden claimers last out, broke slowly, moved up to get into fourth but couldn’t get to the leaders checking in an even fourth, should improve with that race under her belt, follow with similar.

BEST BET: ROCKET JEWEL: Was sent off at 49-1 in his debut, a $25k maiden claiming field with just a field of six horses, was away in last, was outrun to the turn and then came with a wide run into the lane and finished well for third behind the two favorites, respect this runner next out at a solid price.

LONGSHOT: CAMPO’S IMAGE: Has showed speed in all three of his starts and most recently battled head to head early on, couldn’t go with the leaders but did hold on for the show spot at 30-1 almost 12 lengths off the winner, can wire $15k maiden claimers right back.

 

 

 

MONMOUTH PARK

MR. SPACEMAN: Two year old colt made his debut last out going off at 9-1, got away in fourth early on, moved to get into second at the top of the lane but couldn’t go with the odds-on leader checking in third late; will improve off that effort and turf is an option.

TIZNOW A TITAN: Four year old gelding has been sharp of late with two seconds and a win over the last three tries, most recently a solid win versus NW2L $16k claimers, can move up and score versus better in current form, follow.

LONGING FOR QUIET: Was off since March heading into her last start, got away in 8th early on, made a good move to get into fourth past the ¾ mark but stalled and checked in fourth late at 7-1 in a good return run, like her chances next out for the Eddie Broome barn.

DON SIX’S NUMBER: Speedy runner was making her second try versus $5k claimers last out, chased the odds-on choice early on, was in contention into the lane but tired some late to finish third, has found the right level and she could prove tough to beat right back.

VERUSKA: Has been a different horse since switching to the turf with a solid second two back at Penn National against $16k maiden claimers and then a good third behind the two favorites against $40k maiden claimers here at Monmouth when sent off at 34-1; sitting on a win at a big price.

BEST BET: MAGICAL MYTH: Moved into the sharp Claudio gonzalez barn last out, was sent off at 13-1 off a few bad efforts, got away in fourth early on, moved to third at the top of the lane but checked in fourth about two lengths off the winner, look for further improvement next out.

LONGSHOT: OUR YEAR: Was making her first start off a May layoff and was trying the turf for the first time as well, was outrun early on behind sharp splits, saved ground into the lane and passed a few horses checking in fourth late at 31-1; respect right back over the turf at solid odds.
