HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BLOODY CAESAR: His first start
over this track two back as the favorite was a speed and stop effort checking
in last, was claimed by the Scott Lake barn, came out running, set a sharp
early pace and came up just a head short late, wires them next out against NW2L
CHANGE N LUCK: Had a spotty
worktab coming into her debut last out, broke slowly from the rail post, moved
outside to the turn and checked in an even sixth at 67-1; must respect this
runner right back with a drop into a maiden claimer.
FRENEMY: Was moved into a
new barn last out when shipping in from California and making his first start
since October, got away in fifth behind a sharp pace, moved up on the inside to
get into contention, moved out into the lane and finished well to get up for a
clear second, gets there next out off of that effort.
LIKE A DIVA: Was outrun early on
while returning from an October layoff, started to move on the turn and
finished up well for a clear second to the runaway wire to wire winner at 20-1;
all set next out versus NW3L $7.5k claimers.
PLATINUM CHARM: Took a drop into a
NW2L $7.5k claimer last out, was outrun early on racing in 8th but
did put in a solid run through the lane to finish third at 7-1; will prove very
tough next out at that same level.
BEST BET: MAJESTIQUE: Four year old filly came
out running from the start last out, took pressure throughout, was still there
into the lane but couldn’t hold off the closers late checking in third at 9-1;
was claimed out of that effort and will prove tough right back.
LONGSHOT: GARAGE KEPT: Chased the pace two back
from post 11 but tired in the lane to finish 9th, broke from the far
outside post again most recently, pressed the leaders to the top of the lane but tired to finish fourth at 36-1;
sitting on a win at a big price.
BELLA THE BANDIT: Shipped in from
Remington Park for her last start, her first since November, she stalked the
leaders into the lane took over and just held on by a nose in a race that she
probably needed, should be much better next out.
CRAQUI: Was off since June,
was away in 8th early on while racing wide, came wide into the lane
and finished up ok for sixth just about two lengths off the place spot, needed
that race and should put forth a better effort next out.
MONEY ONLY: Was too far back
last out behind a moderate early half mile, came wide into the lane and closed
well for second in a solid final ¼ mile, fits nicely with $16k claimers, tab.
MY DONNA JEAN: Got a solid trip
last out racing in third, moved to the leaders in the stretch and edged away
late to score by ¾’s of a length, should be competitive versus NW3L claimers,
PISCESBYMOONLIGHT: Was off since
September heading into his last start, chased the leaders from fifth while wide
down the backside and tired to finish 8th and last in a race that he
clearly needed, should move forward off that effort and wants more ground.
QUIET SUNSHINE: Was claimed by the
Jacobson barn three back, put in a poor effort two back when showing speed, was
taken back off the pace last out and finished third late behind the two
favorites just missing the place spot by a head at 23-1; tab with similar at a
SACRED GROUND: Likes the inner
track with one win, one second and now two thirds from six tries, ran a
close-up third last out when trying to close into some very slow fractions for
that level, just needs a pace up front, follow.
SEE THE MUSIC: Was sent off at 9-1
in her debut last out, sat in behind a three way duel, moved to take over into
the lane but just couldn’t finish it off tiring some late to finish third,
should move way up off that race.
TIGER WILLIE: Didn’t get much of
a pace to run into last out and found some trouble in the lane to finish sixth
at 8-1; follow with NW3L $12.5k claimers at a solid price right back.
WAR HERO: Was a winner in his
debut back in December, tried winners last out, chased the sharp pace while
wide but just couldn’t go with the sharp wire to wire winner checking in
fourth, should be all set next out.
BEST BET: JESSES GIANT DUNK: Got up to score by a
nose two back to break his maiden, tried winners last out when coming off a
seven week layoff, was allowed to settle well back of the early leaders and had
too much to do closing to finish fifth at 6-1; give him another chance right
LONGSHOT: EFFINEX: Well bred three year old colt
was outrun from the inside when making his debut last out after an awkward
start, started to close into the lane and finished well for fifth at 36-1, is
bred to stretchout and could be tough right back at a solid price.
