HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


BELMONT

AESTHETIQUE: Three year old filly broke well last out, was quickly wrangled back and was an uncomfortable fifth early on, moved to the middle of the track in the lane but still ran into some trouble checking in third late as the favorite, should be the key to all your exotics next out.

CAMIE’S DANCER: Four year old filly ran her record to 0 for 10 last out when trying the turf for the first time, got away in 8th from the rail, came three wide on the turn but failed to make any impact checking in 7th, would love to see a drop into a maiden claimer and she can pop at long odds, tab.

CEASE: Seven year old gelding was racing near the back of the pack, raced three wide into the lane but never got rolling while encountering some traffic issues before checking in fifth; respect next out with $50k claimers.

COAL AND ICE: Well bred three year old filly by Tapit broke her maiden in her career debut back in August of 2013, faced NW1X optional claimers last out, got off a beat slow, raced in fifth early on but never made an impact while saving ground, give this one another shot possibly on the lawn.

HARLAN’S HELLO: Six year old was making just his second start off a July 2011 layoff, chased the odds-on leader early on, was still there into the lane but tired to finish fourth at 6-1; all set now versus NW3L $14k claimers.

LETSGOTOVEGAS: Took some money for her debut for a barn that generally does win early, was away in fifth, made a wide move to get into contention at the top of the lane but was knocked off stride and tired to finish fifth, give this one another shot.

PAINTED PONEY: Four year old filly was claimed out of her last effort by the Rudy Rodriguez barn, moved up into a NW1X allowance race and tried the grass for the first time, chased the pace wide before tiring checking in 8th late, follow right back with a move to the dirt.

PAPA FREUD: Has been sitting on one win for a while now, made a move to go from sixth into third last out but couldn’t run on through the lane checking in sixth at 1 and ¼ miles, needs to turn back in distance.

QUIET POWER: Returned from a September layoff last out for Sydney Dutrow who was also coming off a hiatus, chased the sharp pace from fourth but tired to finish seventh at 10-1; could be all set now, tab.

SWAKOPMUND: Has been over her head against NW1X allowance foes over the last few starts, tried a mile and a half last out over the turf and closed some late to finish an even fifth at 37-1; a drop is in order.

THE BIG DELUXE: Is now 7 for 21 in his career but his form goes in spurts, is coming off a sharp win last out and handles both distances, was claimed and could prove tough right back.

BEST BET: CODY’S NOTES: Took some money in his debut going off at 12-1; broke from a tough rail post going a mile, ducked in at the start, moved up down the backside but encountered some traffic and ended up finishing 8th at last, should be a solid price right back.

LONGSHOT: MAMBO AT THE GYM: Three year old gelding was making his first try for the Michael Wilson barn and his first start since March at Tampa Bay, was forced inward after getting bumped at the start, raced wide down the backside, came six wide into the lane and passed some rivals checking in fifth in a quickly run mile over the turf while going off at 62-1; price play.

 

 

 

MONMOUTH

JERSEY JET: Five year old gelding was making his third start off a January layoff last out, set the pace from the start and into the lane but tired to finish fourth about a 1 and ½ lengths off the winner, follow right back with NW2L statebred $12.5k claimers.

FORGOTTEN PRAYERS: Four year old filly came out running last out, battled head to head for the lead from the start and to the top of the stretch but tired to finish second at 31-1 behind the odds-on choice, offers value right back.

VALLEY KING: Started for the Mario Serey barn who has been having a rough meeting, was sent off as the longest shot in the race at 84-1; was outrun early on while wide but did come with some run tough the lane to finish fourth, price play.

PRINTASTICAT: Five year old mare stalked the odds-on leader the other day, took over after a half mile, battled through the lane to finish a solid second just a nose behind the winner.

IRISH MEDIA: Three year old gelding was a big winner two back scoring by more than eight lengths, moved up in class last out, came out running for the lead through solid splits but had to settle for second, sharp now.

BEST BET: DISTORTED DREAM: Five year old gelding was turning back in distance last out over the turf, broke in last early on, started to move up around the far turn and closed well to finish a close-up fourth in a big effort, tough with a clean break next out.

LONGSHOT: OTOY: Shipped in from Belmont for his last start, took the blinkers off and turned back into a sprint over the turf, chased a sharp pace early on but just couldn’t go with the leaders when it counted tiring to finish sixth at 35-1; a drop into a restricted claimer and more ground should do the trick.
