HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
DRAIN: Finished an even
fifth last out after racing in last for the better part of the race, this four
year old by Siphon may be better on the turf and the price will be right, stay
HANNAH’S GAMBLE: Four year old filly
was returning to the dirt last out and stretching out in distance, came out
running for the lead, battled head to head for the lead through a sharp half
mile in 47:3 but had to settle for a well beaten second to the odds-on winner,
follow right back at a square price.
NEXT BEST THING: Four year old filly
came out of the gate running last out, stalked the leaders from third, made a
good move to take over the lead past the ¾ mile mark, opened up into the lane
and held on for a length win, was claimed out of that race and can move up and
win right back.
ROCKET SIXTYSIX: Was coming off his
maiden win back in February, faced off against a starter allowance field last
out, battled head to head for the lead from the start and to the top of the
lane but tired to finish fifth at 18-1; a drop into a restricted claimer will
do the trick.
SWEET ABANDON: Was claimed three
back from a NW2L $10k claimer, moved up to face off against allowance company
but raced evenly to finish fifth, dropped into a NW3L $16k claimer, got away in
fifth but did run on well to finish third at 12-1; respect this runner next out
BEST BET: MUTINY: Seven year old gelding was
coming off a March layoff last out, came out running from the rail when
stretching out to a mile, set a clear pace from the start and into the lane but
tired late to finish fourth at 12-1; got plenty of that race and should be all
set next out even at the mile distance.
LONGSHOT: FIDDLERS ZAPPIE: Four year old filly
came out running for the lead last out but had to chase the 1-5 favorite around
the racetrack and couldn’t hang with that runner through the lane finishing a
clear second behind the runaway winner at 69-1; follow with $10k claimers right
ADRIATIC DREAM: New York bred filly
was coming off a December layoff last out against NW1X allowance company, raced
in sixth behind slow fractions and passed on horse in the lane to finish fifth,
needs a pace up front and probably needed that race as well, tab.
AWESOME LUTE: Was sent off at
11-1 for his debut against $40k New York bred claimers, was up close early on
from the inside, took up and dropped back into 7th but then came
running again to finish fourth, was claimed by David Jacobson and will prove
tough next out.
DEE DEE’S COMET: Finished a good fourth
two back in March over the inner track at Aqueduct, was on the worst part of
the track that day and was still only beaten about a length and a half, broke
through the gate before her last start and still ran on well for fourth, follow
right back at a better price.
FIDELIUS: Three year old colt
by Pure Prize checked in fifth at 12-1 in his debut against statebred maidens
going a one turn mile, was well back early on over a sloppy track and finished
up well checking in fifth, should improve right back on any surface.
HALOS AND ANGELS: Has definitely
improved over the last few starts, was a winner three back against the bottom
maiden claimers, failed in her first try with winners but tired to finish
sixth, made a good move around the turn in her last start but again tired to
finish fifth at 28-1; respect this runner at a square price right back.
LANE ALLEN: Came out of the
gate running last out setting a sharp pace over a sloppy track in his debut
against $50k maiden claimers, began to tire as they entered the lane and
checked in fifth and last, should benefit from that start and could be all set
MATT AND JESSE: Was outrun early
and often last out behind a pace of 22:4, 45:2:, 1:09:3 and never really got
out of last behind the runaway winner, needs a pace to score but needs some
class relief also.
MOMENTARY MAGIC: Four year old filly
was returning from an August layoff, struck the gate after leaping up at the
start, was well behind, rushed into contention but understandably tired to
finish sixth and last, look for a better result right back.
PRARIE STONE: Got a good trip
last out, stalking the leaders from third over a sloppy track, moved to the
lead into the lane and drew away to score by more than five lengths, that’s two
wins in a row and is ready for better.
ROMAN APPROVAL: Was coming off a
February layoff last out and shipping in form Puerto Rico, was outrun some
behind a very sharp winner while racing in fourth, came wide into the lane and
finished well behind the runway winner while eight lengths clear of the show
BEST BET: WIND OF BOSPHORUS: Had been working
very well before his last start, was bet heavily despite the December layoff,
battled head to head for the lead through some solid fractions over the turf
and he resented the restraint tiring in the lane to finish seventh and last,
will benefit from that race and must be followed right back.
LONGSHOT: SUMMIT COUNTY: Was coming off a
December layoff last out, stayed in an off the turf race, was outrun early on
racing in fifth over a sloppy track and ran on some in the lane checking in an
even fifth at 37-1; should be all set next out over the turf.
