HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
RING IT UP: Five year old
gelding was coming off over a year layoff, got away in third behind a sharp
pace, moved to the lead into the lane and never looked back scoring by more
than two lengths, can get on a roll now, follow.
HANNAH G: Five year old mare
was coming off an October layoff, stalked the sharp pace from third, moved up
outside rivals into the lane but couldn’t get to the wire to wire winner
checking in second, should be all set now.
DYNAMIC CHIME: Three year old
gelding shipped in from Aqueduct for his last start, he got away in third early
on behind moderate splits and rolled on by for an easy win, should fit with
NW2L claimers right back.
MIND ME BOYS: Four year old colt
came out of the gate running last out, battled head to head for the lead but
couldn’t finish it off checking in a clear second against NW2L $7.5k claimers.
OKLAHOMA CRUDE: Was making his
debut last out against MSW company going six furlongs, broke in a bit leaving
the gate, raced outside early on in third and checked in the show spot late
about six lengths off the winner, should improve with that race under his belt
and a stretch out in distance.
BEST BET: RAMSEY BRANCH: Has been showing speed
over the last few starts and has been holding well of late, most recently
checking in second as the longest shot in the race at 22-1 after setting solid
splits, gets there next out.
LONGSHOT: DEACON FURR: Has been off form for
almost a year now but ran on well late in the lane to finish a close-up third
at 18-1 and fits nicely with time restricted claimers, stay close at a square
ACADEMYPERFORMANCE: Was making her
career debut last out, was outrun from the start racing in sixth, didn’t do
much running but did pass a rival and checked in fifth out of 6 horses; is bred
top and bottom for the turf, tab.
BOZIQUE: Was returning from
almost a three month layoff last out, got away in sixth but couldn’t keep up
checking in sixth and last at 7-1; may have been prepping for a turf start in
the future, follow.
FIRENZE FEELING: Has now had six
starts in her career, three wins over Laurel’s main track and three losses over
Aqueduct’s inner track, she most recently checked in a well beaten fifth, look
for a switch to the main track next out or a possible turf start, tab.
KARA’S MATCH POINT: Was bumped a bit at
the start and then the rider checked getting away last of nine and raced well
back throughout most of the race, was still far back into the lane and closed
strongly to finish second to the 6-5 favorite at 7-1; follow right back and is
the key to your exotics.
MAXIMUS MIKE: Three year old made
his debut last out in a five horse field, didn’t get off to the best of starts,
made a big move while wide to challenge the heavy favorite but tired late to
finish fourth; needed that race and will be a tough one to handle next out.
SCHOOLYARD DREAMS: Hard hitting seven
year old was coming off a win heading into his last start, moved up into a
starter allowance race, stalked the leaders from fourth, took over at the top of
the lane and drew away for an easy win, has the back class to call on, stay
SIR WARBO: Four year old
gelding came out running right from the start last out when making his career
debut, set the pace for a ½ mile but tired in the lane to finish sixth, needed
that race and a move to the turf could be in order.
TAPITATION: Three year old New
York bred by Tapit has a win and two seconds in three career starts most
recently a distant second to a runaway winner when sent off at 3-5; is bred to
handle the turf and that might be best surface, tab.
THRILL HILL: Stumbled at the
start and lost his rider soon after the start, this talented but erratic three
year old New York bred will prove tough if he can keep his antics in check.
WORTH WILD: Took good money for
his debut going off at 3-1; got away in fourth behind the leaders, made a good
wide move to get into second but tired late to finish third, all set now for
the Nevin barn.
BEST BET: CHASING MOONLIGHT: Had put in some
solid races over the winter before going off form over his last two races
against better company, was away in seventh early on while caught four wide,
made a wide move around the turn to get into contention but couldn’t get to the
leaders checking in third; was claimed by the Jeremiah Englehart barn and can
move up and win next out.
LONGSHOT: EIRIGH: Was coming off a November last
out, raced in 8th early after getting forced in at the start, raced
wide down the backside to get into sixth but tired in the stretch checking in
seventh, may have needed the race and would appreciate a turnback or a switch
back to the turf.
