HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


LAUREL PARK

SMOOTH APPROACH: Tried to make up ground behind a soft early pace and managed to gain third behind blowout winner in her latest; worth another tumble with similar group.

PRINCESS PERFECT: Angled wide and finished up willingly for third when stretched to one mile and up to starter allowance level for her latest; had won two prior starts and stays sharp.

DIXIE TRAVELER: Broke a beat slow, raced in range, lost ground in traffic, and put in another run for fourth in debut run; 4YO daughter of Mr. Greeley with some upside.

GOOD TIME HENNY: Lived up to favored billing with three-length score when meeting winners in his first start since claimed from winning debut; keeps rolling for trainer T. Keefe.

AUGUST OSAGE: Angled wide and came up empty when it counted in third-place finish as the public’s choice in his first start since claimed by trainer C. Gonzalez (20% wins last year); next time.

I’M SMOKIN HOT: Chased throughout and came up second best when meeting winners for the first time following MCL win at AQU; another chance.

4*SPECIAL: CHIEF THUNDERCLOUD: Put in a fair effort for fifth in his first attempt since July by way of WO; proven son of Indian Charlie has his legs under him now.

LONGSHOT: SWISS ARMY WIFE: Chased the pace from wide spot and managed fourth of 11 behind an easy winner in what should prove a useful debut; daughter of Colonel John worth following.

 

TURFWAY PARK

BLUE CHERRIES SPIN: Shook off pace pressure and drove clear to 3 ¾-length victory when favored on class drop most recently; 9YO gelding owns 12 career wins and can stay sharp.

GETTA RHYTHM: Showed some needed and overdue life when fourth on move to synthetic ground by way of MNR for his latest; overdue, but worth another shot.

COURTLY FLYER: Might have been in a touch tough most recently, and managed third from wide spot between foes; use in exotics.

EXULTANT: Blasted free on the pace and came up second best to easy winner when trying to stretch his speed one mile most recently; stay on board with gelding in the exacta in 10 of 19 lifetime tries.

NASTROVYA: Rallied up the inside from well back and gave a fair overall try for fourth of 10 in his latest; figures competitive at current bottom claiming level.

CROSSED HEARTS: Stalked the pace wide, took over, and weakened when it counted to finish fourth of 10 in her latest; proves useful first attempt against winners.

JIMMY THE WHIP: Needed 10 tries to leave the maiden world, but did so nicely in his latest when he overcame a bobbling start to lead throughout; try again with winners in reasonable spot.

THE DUCK OF REED: Had little chance giving chase in his latest behind 8 ½-length winner, but fared well for third; maintains currently good form.

NIGHT WARDEN: Took the first turn wide, chased the pace, and stayed on for third when outside draw didn’t help his cause in latest; solid sort.

4*SPECIAL: RIDGE DANCE (GB): Rallied from way back to pick up third (second via DQ) when in search of repeat score following win that came off layoff; 9YO had right to bounce, so form is encouraging.

LONGSHOT: BOLD SEEKER: Finished third of 11 when in from MNR for his first synthetic racing experience most recently; can move up off his first start since mid-December.
