HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
CRONY CAPITALISM: Was off since June,
took a drop in class last out when moving to the turf, pressed the pace early
on, dropped back on the turn when in some traffic but then came again to finish
in a dead-heat for fourth, handles all surfaces.
LUCKY SEVEN: Three year old
filly dropped back down in class last out, chased the pace from the rail but
couldn’t get to the top two favorites, respect with NW2L $5k claimers.
LYLE’S ANGEL: Six year old mare
was coming off a two month break for her last start, was outrun early on behind
sharp splits before closing well to finish fourth at 9-2; follow right back if
she returns in a few weeks.
MS. GREEN MONKEY: Two year old filly
came out running in her second start, cleared off to the lead and was able to
hold on late to score by just a half-length; tab with restricted winners right
RICKASHEA: Returned from a
December layoff last out and turned back in distance to go 5 and ½ furlongs,
got away in fourth before finishing well for second at 2-1; follow with NW2L
claimers right back over the lawn.

outrun early on racing in sixth behind moderate splits, came four wide into the
lane and finished well to get up for second late at 15-1; follow right back.
LONGSHOT: OKLAHOMA DEN: Five year old gelding
stretched out in distance last out, was right up on the slow pace, moved to the
lead down the backside but couldn’t go with the leaders in the lane checking in
sixth at 10-1; follow on the turnback in distance.
BOOGIE BIZ: Four year old
gelding was away in fifth last out, made a good move to get into second right
up with the leaders but tired in the lane to finish fifth at 52-1; give this
one a look with restricted claimers over the turf.
