HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
JET MAJESTY: Two year old filly
ran well in her debut when finishing a troubled fifth, took blinkers off last
out and stretched out in distance, was away in third early on but couldn’t get
past the top two checking in third as the slight favorite, is bred to handle
the dirt as well, follow.
LADY’S SMART ALEC: Was an easy winner
in his debut at Finger Lakes, shipped in here for the New York Stallion Stakes,
made the lead from the start, was still in there into the lane but couldn’t
hold off the odds-on choice late checking in third just a head off the place
SELENITE: Two year old filly
was making just her second start over the dirt last out in a New York Stallion
series race, was away in sixth early on, came very wide around the turn and was
still wide into the lane tiring late to finish sixth, offers value right back
against NW1X statebred allowance foes.
MATCHMADEINHEAVEN: Started her career
three for three but then failed in her fourth try checking in fourth in a
stallion series race, was off over a year and returned in another stallion
series race but ran like she needed that race, follow next out.
ABLE BAKER CHARLIE: Thought he might
move forward after his maiden win four back but has been evenly in three
subsequent races, most recently checking in sixth at 37-1 behind a very
interesting rival, a slight drop and some early pace can do.
ANAPHYLAXIS: Got back to some of
that good form we saw earlier in the year when he closed well to finish third
in a stallion series race at 33-1; handles the inner track and has run well at
many distances, tab.
MY PINK EASTERBABY: Was shipping in off
a bunch of turf races in New Jersey and was dropping in class, stumbled badly
at the start losing all chance especially because she is a need the lead type
and she tired to finish 12th and last, that will help her odds right
KID CRUZ: Got a solid setup
last out when making his second start and dropping in class, came with a solid
run around the turn and into the lane and drew away smartly to score by six
lengths, was claimed by the Linda Rice barn and can be tough with winners right
COFFEE AND DONUTS: Two year old
gelding was sent off at 9-2 in his debut, broke seventh from his rail post, was
a bit green around the turn and then came six wide into the lane finishing up
well for fourth in a decent time versus $35k claimers, all set now for sharp
WITH DELITE: Liked her career
debut back at Calder in August, she finished well despite racing greenly, she
was off since then and making her first try last out for the Jacobson barn, took
plenty of late money to go off as the 7-2 second choice, stalked from fourth
but didn’t have any kick checking in sixth, improves next out at a square
BEST BET: SHIPWRECKED: Was sent off at 14-1 in
his debut, was bumped from both sides as the start last out, raced in 8th
from the start and into the lane and checked in seventh about seven lengths off
the winner, should improve off that effort and could offer value.
LONGSHOT: SWELL: Was a winner in his debut at
22-1, stalking the leaders and then running them down late by a neck, faced off
against winners last out, got bumped at the start and then was very rank down
the backside en route to a fifth place finish, put a line through that race and
must be followed back next out.
A STUDENT: Was making his
first start since September at Delaware when he checked in a distant second,
was bumped at the start last out behind some moderate splits over a yielding
course and checked in fourth late, handles both surfaces and should be set to
go next out.
BIG SHOTS HUMOR: Hails from a sharp
barn that does well with their young runners, was sent off at 24-1 in his debut
but did show some sharp early speed before tiring to finish ninth and last,
should improve off that effort and offers some value next out.
REASON’S HARVEST: Was sent off at
23-1 in her debut last out, came out running from the rail, set a pressured
pace to the top of the lane but tired to finish third, should move forward off
her debut and may want a bit more ground.
RIVER CRUISING: Has been off since
March when checking in seventh over the turf, does own a second place finish
over the this dirt course and could be ready to roll, follow.
SONG TO YOU: Has a second and a
third in two career starts both over this strip back in the winter of 2013,
well bred runner should be very tough when he returns to the races, stay close.
BEST BET: H AN F’S SENSATION: Was returning from
an August layoff most recently in a Louisiana bred stakes race at Louisiana
downs, was reluctant to load, raced in 8th early on but did close
well to finish fourth at 5-1 behind the odds-on choice, all set now.
LONGSHOT: EVANGELINEWAITONME: Four year old filly
got away in second chasing the pace to the top of the lane, dispatched of that
rival and hung in well to finish third at 61-1; can hang around a bit longer
next out at a big price.
