HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
BOX OFFICE: Chased the pace
from the start last out behind moderate splits, was still there into the lane
but couldn’t go with the runaway leader tiring some late to finish fourth; tab
with a move back to one turn at Belmont.
COAST OF SANGRIA: Five year old mare
was coming into her last effort off two solid wins, didn’t break sharply and
made no attempt to go to the lead instead trailing the field for most of the
race before passing one horse late to finish sixth; was claimed again and look
for a better effort next out.
LADY OF GOLD: Has made two starts
for the Graham Motion barn now, one a third back in August and most recently
finishing second on Labor Day after pressing the pace early on, took over into
the lane but had to settle for second, sitting on a win.
MEMORIES OF PETER: Got away near the
back of the pack, chased the pace from well back, came very wide into the lane
and passed a few horses checking in sixth when going off at 5-1; should move forward
off that effort.
RIVER OF DREAMS: Two year old colt
was sent off at 13-1 in his debut, was bumped hard at the start and stumbled
thereafter racing in 9th and last behind sharp splits, saved ground
before fanning wide into the lane closing to finish fifth, got some useful
experience and should move way up.
SAHARAN SERENADE: Three year old
filly was bumped at the start, steadied near the back of the pack racing well
back, started to move into the lane and finished well for fifth, follow.
STARSHIP CAPTAIN: Got a good spot in
behind the leaders most recently, moved wide around the turn leaving the best
part of the track and could only manage fifth about a length off the place
spot; fits with $16k claimers right back.
SWEET SWEET AFLEET: Three year old filly
will be on most horses to watch list after her debut, she pressed the leader,
took over that lead but bolted into the lane losing many many lengths,
straightened out in deep stretch and closed well to finish a clear second,
breaks maiden if she behaves.
TIZALLHEART: Is a much better
turf horse, moved back to the lawn last out, raced in 8th behind a
half mile in 48:1, put in a solid close in the lane to finish third behind the
dropdown even money favorite at 13-1; is still eligible for NW2L claimers, follow
on the turf right back.
BEST BET: TREASURY DEVIL: Six year old gelding
was coming off a fourth place finish in his first try for the Rodriguez barn,
raced well back early on racing in 8th behind moderate splits, came
with a solid run through the lane to finish third behind the leaders, will be
very tough with a pace up front.
LONGSHOT: IMPOSING FIGURE: Was sent off at 23-1
in his debut, came out running for the lead pressing the leader for more than a
half mile but tired in the lane to finish fourth, should improve off that
AMBER MORNING: Four year old filly
has been turning her form around lately with two seconds and a third, most
recently checking in second just a head off the winner at 7-1; tab with NW2L
CHUNNEL: Is a Jersey bred
with talent but has been hard used over his last three starts, most recently
tiring to fifth after pressing the early pace, handles the turf and the dirt,
IFIMLYINIMDYIN: Five year old
gelding was sent off as the longest shot in the race last out at 12-1; was
outrun early on behind a half mile in 44, came three wide around the final turn
and finished well to just miss the show spot, tab.
STEVE CAME THRU: Got away in third
early on in his first start off the claim, took over the lead into the lane but
couldn’t hold on late checking in second, should be tough right back in a
SUNSET TIME: Had been in good
form of late with two thirds and a second over the last three but was turned
back in distance last out and she was outrun checking in sixth, follow back
with a stretchout in distance.
BEST BET: A SIXTIES TUNE: Took the blinkers off
for his last start, still didn’t get off to a good start racing in sixth early
on but did close well while wide around the turn and rolled on by for the win
to score by almost three lengths; ready for restricted winners.
LONGSHOT: TIZNOW A TITAN: Five year old gelding
was breaking from the rail last out when sent off as the longest shot in the
race at 32-1; came out running from that spot chasing the leader through a half
mile in 44:4 but couldn’t go on with it tiring to finish fifth, price play.
