HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


MEADOWLANDS

COLONIAL STRIKE: Raced off the pace and then made a mild rally while racing three wide

to finish an even fourth. Will be right there with maiden routers.

DEFRILLS: Ran very well in her first try with winners last out making a strong move to the lead

into swift fractions but understandably tired to finish third. Should be tough next out with similar.

GOLDEN PARACHUTE: Made up some good ground in the stretch to finish third in a solid time

and state bred should be followed next out.

JETICO: Showed good speed from the start last out and was right there heading into the turn

before he started to bare out on the turn losing all chance. Will offer big time value at the windows

next out and can be tough with state bred maiden claimers.

KALOOKAN LADY: Was used up in the pace last out battling through a quick half mile before

tiring to finish last; try this one on the drop.

MILITARY LASS: Three year old filly made it two for two on the turf with another wire to wire

win and should be given a shot versus better.

MS. TRICK OR TREAT: Was quickly clear to the lead from the far outside post, was passed

and then came back again for the win. Follow in turf sprints.

P. KERNEY: Was coming off a layoff and trying the turf last out and hung in fairly well for fourth.

Look for a better performance next out and turf again is an option.

PRINCESS POLLYANNA: Took money for career debut going off as the 2-1 favorite. Broke slow,

rushed up the inside before tiring badly in the lane; follow with that race under her belt.

SATIATE: Seems to have gotten back on track with that win last out and this Jersey bred is one

to watch with better.

 

4STARSPECIAL: SLEETWOOD MAC: Battled through ridiculously fast fractions and still held on

well for the show spot. Will be tough if he can clear off early on.

LONGSHOT: O’MALLEY: Has a nice closing kick and showed it when finishing third last out. Had

to deal with a 10lb bug girl and would benefit from a rider switch.

 

 

 

BAY MEADOWS

COMPETITIVE DUDE: Improving little by little with each attempt he makes. Juvenile is worth using

in the gimmicks, especially at a big price.

GO NINER: Is better than those two stinkers she threw in Sept. 15 and Sept. 30. Wakes up on a

turn back to six furlongs.

GOTTAHAVEMILK: Dueled through some pretty quick splits while second last out. Speed pops

the right bunch.

JULIES FLYING NOW: Draw a line through her August race where she lost the rider at the start

and she’s always there. Loves the Bay Meadows sod.

KNIGHT OF CUPS: Emerald Downs invader didn’t take to the turf one bit in local debut. Will prove she

belongs when placed on the main course though.

NU CAT: Showed added interest running fifth on the grass Sept. 16, before digressing with a sixth-place

finish over the Bay Meadows dirt Sept. 30. Give him a shot on the turf.

PHOTOBOUND: Cal-bred picked up needed experience in her debut Oct. 1. Can only move forward for

sharp trainer William Morey.

SGT. ALVAREZ: Really took a step forward off his dismal ninth-place debut with a third-place finish

Sept. 30. Earns diploma shortly.

SONG OF THE BULL: Claimed by a sharp outfit out of a winning effort last out. Will be spotted upwards

right out of the box.

THISCATSKRAFTY: Blazed the way through three furlongs in :35 3/5 at Bay Meadows Oct. 6. Laying

down the foundation at dawn.

VERMONT RIOT: The light switch finally turned on for this filly in her seventh career start

[finished third at 86-1]. Get some bang for your buck.

WOVEN DREAM: Beaten chalk in latest clearly had an excuse stumbling at the start, but still ran well to

finish a closing second. No excuses next time.

 

4STARSPECIAL: JEFFRIES BAY: Made amends for his disappointing fourth-place showing in the James F.

Lyttle Memorial H. with a gutsy allowance victory Oct. 1. Hollendorfer’s got this one razor sharp.

LONGSHOT: PURELY SPECIAL: Fifth-place finish at 44-1 last time out is better than it appears on

paper. This one is about to deliver at a price; be there.
