HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


BELMONT

STARAGO: Four year old gelding ran well in his debut checking in fifth over the turf, was sent off at 5-1 last out but found trouble throughout before checking in seventh, his price will go up next out, give him another shot.

NINEINTHENINE: Eight year old gelding ran on well for second to the clear favorite when in against starter allowance foes last out going off at 31-1; is a must use in exotics right back with similar.

GABBY’S BROWN: Made her career debut last out for the Rudy Rodriguez barn, chased the pace from second, dropped back a bit but then came again to finish second to the runaway winner, fits right back against $65k maiden claimers.

UTOPIAN WIFE: Four year old filly moved into the Rudy Rodriguez barn for her start two back, got the job done against maiden claimers at Delaware, moved back to the turf last out but to no avail, give her a shot right back with a move to the dirt against restricted claimers.

MR HARLAN: Two year old colt took money for his debut last out going off at 6-1; broke from the rail post and raced in seventh, saved the ground into the lane but couldn’t do better than sixth, follow with that race under his belt.

STATUS OF FORCES: Five year old gelding looked great in the paddock and post parade most recently when sent off at 103-1, pressed the pace from third, was right there into the lane and then held on for the show spot late, follow at a big price right back.

PERFECT STORMY: Three year old colt was coming off his maiden win for the suddenly live Eugene Reiff barn, pressed the leaders but tired to finish fifth and last, handles the turf as well and just needs proper placement, price play.

TIZALLHEART: Moved up to face NW1X allowance foes and stretched out in distance, showed speed leading through pedestrian fractions of 25:3, 52, 1:18:4 and came up a neck short as the longest shot in the race at 37-1; sharp now.

LIBERTY FUZE: Three year old filly shipped in from Gulfstream for her last start, came out running for the lead chasing the pace for more than a half mile and tired in the lane to finish sixth at 67-1; got that race under her belt and now a drop in class will do.

HENRY’S GAL: Is now 0 for 4 over the turf and 4 for 6 over the main track, showed good speed last out and last until the lane before tiring to finish 8th at 9-1; look for a move back to the dirt next out.

SMOKEY BROWN: Showed some promise at the beginning of the year with three straight seconds in a row but has faltered in his next three albeit with a questionable ride last out as the 2-1 favorite, give this one another look at a better price next out.

BEST BET: QUIT SMOKIN: Came out running from post 11 last out against $40k maiden claimers over the turf, pressed the pace, took over after a ¼ mile but tired in the lane to finish ninth, follow this runner next out with a move back to the dirt against maiden claimers.

LONGSHOT: DELIGHTFUL ERIN: Bought for $110k back in April, dropped in for a $65k tag against maiden claimers, showed good speed again but tired to finish seventh at 12-1; is a much better turf horse, stay close at a solid price.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LAUREL

STONE OF SCONE: Was coming off a seven week layoff last out, got away in third chasing the leaders, dropped back a bit and then came again for third, fits with conditioned $5k claimers and should be all set now.

OUR SMOKIN HERO: Four year old gelding was shipping in from Thistledown and making his first start over this track, pressed the pace from the start and was still right there into the lane, holding on well for third at 35-1; tab.

NINE SIXTY: Broke from post nine last out, chased the loose on the lead frontrunner through a half mile in 44:3 but couldn’t go with the closers late checking in fourth at 10-1, all set now.

SVINDAHL: Three year old colt was making his first start off just two published

workouts, was outrun some early on behind a sharp half mile in 44:3, raced in between horses into the lane and closed to finish fourth at 29-1; should move up off that effort.

CALLIOPE: Six year old mare was outrun early on when sprinting over the turf last out, came six wide into the lane and finished well for fifth at 9-1; respect this runner next out with a similar group.

BEST BET: BOB’S MY UNCLE: Two year old colt was sent off at 12-1 in his debut, raced in third early on behind a moderate half mile but rallied strongly in the lane to score going away in a good time of 1:11:3.

LONGSHOT: XENA’S ARROW: Four year old filly was coming off a big win against maiden claimers two back at Penn National, pressed the leader from the start, took over into the lane and just came up a half-length short checking in third at 61-1; must respect with NW2L $20k claimers.
