HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
PHILADELPHIA (PARX RACING)
TICFAW: Seven year old gelding was making his third start back off a December layoff, after two tries on the turf, he dropped in class and moved back to the dirt, moved to the leaders at the top of the lane and drew away to score by more than four lengths, taken to repeat.
OUR DEPUTY EXPRESS: Was off since July 2012, broke from the rail last out against starter allowance company, was away in 7th and last after breaking very slowly but ran on well through the lane to finish second at 38-1; moves forward off that effort.
AWESOME LIFE: Was coming off a January layoff last out, was working well in the morning for a solid barn, pressed the early leader but couldn’t finish it off checking in sixth at 7-2; follow right back off that effort.
BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL: Seven year old gelding came out running last out, set some moderate fractions into the lane but tired a bit late to finish third at 11-1; handles the dirt as well so a turnback in distance could be in order.
STORMY NOVEL: Was sent off at 5-2 for her debut last out, came out running from the rail post, battled head to head for a half mile but tired in the lane to finish fifth, well bred runner is bred to want more ground and should be all set right back.
BEST BET: REAL REAL SOON: Made his first start off the claim last out, was away in ninth early on, made a good move to get into third at the top of the lane but flattened out a bit late to finish fourth at 11-1 as part of an entry, could pop at a price right back.
LONGSHOT: ALL ABOUT AVERY: Was a big winner two back scoring over $10k maiden claimers, moved up to face off against NW2L $16k claimers last out, was outrun early on behind sharp fractions and closed with a wide run to finish third at 22-1; respect right back.
ALL MINE TONIGHT: Did not get the best of rides last out when finishing second to the runaway winning favorite last out, should move through her NW1X statebred allowance condition next out.
CALL UP THE CHIEF: Didn’t run badly last out when checking in sixth at 76-1, has a few races in the past that can make him competitive with a similar group and is a must use in all exotics next out.
DONE SMOKING: Wanted to go the lead early on last out but was wrangled back to race in behind the leaders, had to alter course in the lane and ran on late to finish third, has ability and should be followed right back.
DRINK WITH PRIDE: Tried the turf for the first time last out, showed his customary speed, held that lead around the far turn before tiring some late to finish fourth at 13-1; should improve off that effort right back, tab.
ENTHRONE: Two year old colt tried the turf for the second time last out, was away in sixth behind some moderate splits, came with run into the lane, angled out and got up for third late, has some ability and handles all surfaces.
INDY’S MILLION: Ran last in a field of five last out after racing evenly throughout, needed the race and a move to the turf could be an option.
LARRY’S BENTLEY: New York bred returned from a February layoff last out and tried the turf, was away in 8th early on before he started to bolt around the far turn and checked in a well beaten last of 11; give him one more chance at long odds.
MESS IN A DRESS: Has slowly shown some improvement over the last few races most recently closing to finish fourth at 18-1; handles the dirt better and a move to that surface could key a big mutuel.
REBELLIOUS CHIC: Was returning from an April 2012 layoff last out, got a good spot early on in third behind sharp fractions, moved out into the lane but couldn’t go with the leaders late checking in fifth at 29-1; should move forward off that effort and can handle the dirt as well.
SIOUX: Well bred New York bred made his debut going six furlongs, was outrun some early on before finishing up well for third, should move way up off that race and the further the better.
SKYE SARATOGA: Showed good early speed in her debut last out when sent off at 11-1, was still there at the top of the lane but tired some late to finish fourth; should improve next out and a move to the turf could be in order.
BEST BET: MISTER DOOLEY: Was a late scratch last out for wagering purposes when he lost a shoe on the way to the gate, was sent right to the lead and never looked back, talented New York bred can continue winning streak right back with winners.
LONGSHOT: MISS LILIAN TAYLOR: Was sent off at 26-1 for her debut, had shown some ability early on in her worktab over the summer but didn’t do much running until late, will offer big time value right back, stay close at with $25k claimers.
