HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


TURF PARADISE

CHOP HOUSE: Chased and weakened in latest, but when back in town after facing

 lesser at Yav of late; adjusts and gets back on track in a hurry.

DYSFUNCTIONAL LADY: Held sharp form when second in latest – albeit as

beaten favorite – after blitzing clear on hot early pace; proves wise claim for trainer Wolochuk.

GREGG’S MISTAKE: Returned form lengthy layoff and lived up to odds-on billing for

clear maiden score; lightly raced 4YO filly a very interesting claim by trainer Eikleberry.

HALO JET: Has now finished fourth in a pair of starts to begin his career; note,

gate problems have not helped 2YO, who can fix bad habits and report home a winner.

MATOS LAND: Stayed in contention throughout and went well for second behind

clear winner when making his first start since last-December; improves in a hurry.

REAL CREEK: Raced up close, moved to lead, and weakened in stretch but

 did finish a solid fourth; gritty gelding brings speed and strong overall mark.

ZYNASTRY: Stepped up to restricted stakes company for latest off $8K-claim, and

fared well to finish fourth after battling on pace; staying on board.

 

4STARSPECIAL: MOSTLY GLORY: Went well in return from break when second two

 starts back, then fell a bit flat when a distant third in latest; bounces back in a hurry.

LONGSHOT: FRIENDOFTHEFAMILY: Set the pace and faded a bit to finish third

 when stretched to route for latest; sharp filly gives barn options.

 

BAY MEADOWS

BENCHMARK BARGAIN: First or second in each of her last five starts. Have

 to be crazy not to use her in the gimmicks.

BIG WAGNER: Just got tagged by a head in his turf debut after setting the early

fractions. Emerald invader is for real.

BLUE EYED BLOND: It looks like the light switch finally clicked on for this colt

 in his third start. Finished seventh in his first two, but put it all together last out

with a 4 ½-length tally Oct. 14. Go for it.

BOOZEN BLUES: Lost the rider at the start in his second career outing. Bad luck

 can’t last forever for this one.

GRAYLEE ROSE: Turned in two decent efforts in October after a rough

patch of starts this summer. Tab at the basement level.

ITSAGALTHING: High-powered speedster opens up large early leads and sees

how long she can last. Come and catch her.

LA BRIEANNA: Looking good in her last three [a win, a second and a third]

since going turf to dirt. Follow right out of the box.

MAZELMAN: Son of Mazel Trick has sharp early speed and handled his first test

 versus winners [allowance company] remarkably well running second. He’s the

 real deal.

REBELETTE: Returned from a 12-month layoff without missing a beat, going

 wire-to-wire by five lengths Oct. 15. Handles better next time.

SLOAT BLVD: Backed as the 2-1 chalk last time, he was dueled into defeat

through :22 and :44 4/5 fractions. Never off the board in eight career starts; must respect.

TRISH’S CAJUN: Made only her third start of the season last out, but it was a

good one [finished third]. Spices things up a bit.

WILD DAYDREAMER: Was bumped at the start, then dueled through some

pretty quick fractions before fading to fifth. May be better off coming from off the pace.

 

4STARSPECIAL: B.Z. JONES: Wins at a high clip and was able to handle a bump

 up in class off the Brian Koriner claim. Armed and dangerous.

LONGSHOT: MOUTIN BLUE’S: Showed the first signs of life in her seventh

career start finishing third at 27-1. Five-year-old can only get better.
