HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
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.
MISS BROWN: Big Brown
filly has taken to grass nicely with a pair of third-place finishes. Front-runner
forgets to stop.
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.
Continues to put
forth big efforts since returning to grass and adding blinkers. Hard to figure why
he keeps getting overlooked at the windows.
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.
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.
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.
CUT: Stakes-place son
of Harlington can do the job over either surface here. Could be quite
interesting on a turnback in distance, too.
OF DOOM: With two
starts under his belt following the layoff, it’s time to head to the windows.
FOG: Returned from
the shelf running with a sharp second-place finish at 9-1. Catch her if you
UP: Keeps on
improving with racing experience. Anxiously awaiting his first attempt versus
winners following smart maiden tally.
DATE: Debut was
decent going six furlongs, but he took a step backward when stretched to a
mile. Cuts back and scores.
running some decent races without getting his picture taken. Back-classy
gelding can win one on memory alone at the current level.
SHARP: Has useful
speed and is very competitive at the current level. Go in with both fists.
MONEY: Off since late
last summer, but has run well at Golden Gate in the past. Can fire fresh off
BET: BRILLIANT MELODY: Took
some time off following a pair of wins, but appears to be training smartly
since. Does it again.
