HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


PHILADELPHIA (PARX RACING)

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 close.

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 against similar.

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 back.

 

 

BELMONT

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 next out.

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 horse, tab.

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.
