HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
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.
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.
