HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


GULFSTREAM

FINANCIAL MODELING: Overcame a tardy beginning to finish a distant third--beaten only a neck for second--in his seven-furlong debut. Should appreciate more distance.

HALLOWED: Continues to make progress with racing experience and added distance. Low-profile connections help the price.

LITTLE MISS BROWN: Big Brown filly has taken to grass nicely with a pair of third-place finishes. Front-runner forgets to stop.

MAKE IT SNAPPY: Well-bred daughter of Medaglia d’Oro--Flashing was clearly in need of a start to get her feet wet. Will make a big jump forward at second asking.

PADILLA: Continues to put forth big efforts since returning to grass and adding blinkers. Hard to figure why he keeps getting overlooked at the windows.

ROMANS PARADISE: Took a nice step forward with a third-place finish in his first start for a tag off the November layoff. Won’t remain in the maiden ranks much longer.

 

BEST BET: LITTLE MICHELLE: Very hard to dismiss what she’s accomplished in her first three trips to the post. Keep close tabs on this daughter of Tiz Wonderful.

 

LONGSHOT: WE’RE ALL SET: Recent fifth on grass at 18-1 is better than it looks, and he can also run on dirt. Very dangerous at a price.

 

NO. CALIFORNIA

ARGYLE CUT: Stakes-place son of Harlington can do the job over either surface here. Could be quite interesting on a turnback in distance, too.

DUKE OF DOOM: With two starts under his belt following the layoff, it’s time to head to the windows.

FRISCO FOG: Returned from the shelf running with a sharp second-place finish at 9-1. Catch her if you can.

GROWIN UP: Keeps on improving with racing experience. Anxiously awaiting his first attempt versus winners following smart maiden tally.

JIMMY’S DATE: Debut was decent going six furlongs, but he took a step backward when stretched to a mile. Cuts back and scores.

POSSE POWER: Quietly running some decent races without getting his picture taken. Back-classy gelding can win one on memory alone at the current level.

SIMPLY SHARP: Has useful speed and is very competitive at the current level. Go in with both fists.

TRIBAL MONEY: Off since late last summer, but has run well at Golden Gate in the past. Can fire fresh off the bench.

 

BEST BET: BRILLIANT MELODY: Took some time off following a pair of wins, but appears to be training smartly since. Does it again.
