HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


 

SUFFOLK DOWNS

EXPLORATIONIST: Delivered a break-through performance winning by 8 ¾ lengths in wire-to-wire fashion

last out. Makes it two in a row.

LOVE RUSH: Like the improvement this filly has shown since shipping in off dismal Aqueduct form. Finished

fourth July 20, third July 31, then fifth Aug. 11. All systems are a go.

MAC JUSTICE: Haltered by low-profile outfit in the beginning of July, but has done well with the bump up in class.

‘Justice’ will be served.

MARIA’S MAGIC: Her form has improved dramatically since shipping in to Suffolk. Speedster can wire nickel

claimers.

MY LAWYER JOHN: Keeps on running second [made it four straight Aug. 11]; shouldn’t be forgotten though. Speedster

is always a threat to steal one.

POTRI MARSHAL: If you toss out his one start when they stretched him to a route July 13, you have a pretty consistent

runner. Doesn’t like to win, but can be very useful for the gimmicks.

ROYALSALY: Finally returned after being on the shelf for 12 months putting forth an eighth-place finish. Should be

tighter for her next start.

SEA CHATTER: Faced better in Florida and the brief freshening has done her well. Exits the maiden ranks when dropped

to claiming company.

 

4STARSPECIAL: CARLOW: The expectations were pretty high on this filly [4-5 chalk Aug. 11] shipping in off a

fourth-place finish at Belmont, but she could only manage finishing third. Don’t think we’ve seen her best yet.

LONGSHOT: NO PHONE SWABBE: If you can ignore his last three, he has a couple of respectable outings further back.

You will be compensated for your risk factor at the windows.

 

 

PIMLICO

ACE’S VALENTINE: Intrigued that Dale Capuano would step in and claim this mare off two horrific turf efforts. She did wake

up out of the box with a troubled fourth when placed back on the dirt and dropped in class though; follow.

EASY GAME: California invader hasn’t had an easy time adjusting to the East Coast. Ran his best race while third last out

since relocating; a win isn’t far away.

FOR GOLD: Think he is a lot better than he’s shown in his last two—ran fifth June 4 and seventh Aug. 13. Turns it around

for low-profile outfit.

LEGAL CONTROL: Showed instant improvement off his dismal ninth in career debut at Belmont July 17. In his last start at

Pimlico, he was far back early and finished with some interest to be third. Ready to earn his diploma.

LET’S ROLL GIRL: Opened up a big early lead in her debut and stopped badly to finish eighth. Will be more effective if

able to save some of that energy for the stretch run.

MCFARLAND: Lone Star invader was bet to win last time Aug. 15, but couldn’t overcome his outside post after pressing the

pace. Moves up off fifth-place showing.

MR SEE SAW: Just never got involved after getting bumped at the start in second career race Aug. 15. Tab at a price

versus maiden claimers.

PEACE DANCER: Spotted to win dropping in for $15k; early speed duel compromised his chances though. Needs to be all

alone for best chance.

PROCREATE: Hadn’t run since a dismal Penn National performance Feb. 12, but wound up a good second Aug. 15. Fits

with $12.5k claimers.

RUSH TO GLORY: Impressed by the amount of speed she was able to show in her debut from a tough post. A better draw

next time can key the victory.

SAVE THE FORESTS: Seven-year-old will always be dangerous as long as they keep sending him to the lead. Nickel

claimers beware.

TIBER TIME: Gave it a good go to finish third in his first attempt versus winners after needing 11 starts to break his maiden.

Proved he belongs at the current level.

 

 

4STARSPECIAL: LARRUPIN GAL: Has handled different types of surfaces in each of her races, while posting one win

and two seconds from three starts. Not too shabby.

LONGSHOT: PITTSBURGH KID: Continues to grind it out at prices without posting victories. Third at 16-1 in latest; toss

in the exacta box.
