HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
HIGH MYSTERY: Chased in third throughout in a better try
following a seventh-place finish at IND in prior return from break; on the
board in 23 of 33 lifetime starts.
DOM THE BOMB: Showed good front-running speed and weakened
late to finish fourth when in from AP following debut score in early-August;
plenty of upside.
PERKY KITTEN: Showed improved early and overall interest
when third after racing on the pace with switch to dirt for his latest; brings
back checks, so use in gimmicks.
SKYLANDER: Jumped up class ladder when in from KD in search
of repeat most recently, and fared well to finish third, beaten a length; on
board in 10 of 16 lifetime starts.
LIZ PENDENS: Now has a pair of races in her since back from
brief respite, and should benefit from a fitness standpoint off her latest
sixth-place finish in route over soft ground; might surprise right group.
LOVELY MARIA: Came up second best behind easy winner when in
from DEL off her debut maiden win; promising juvenile filly for always strong
Larry Jones barn.
GET SET GO: Couldn’t threaten but managed a fair fifth of
nine in her racing debut; daughter of More Than Ready from an Unbridled mare
should benefit from experience and more ground.
COLONEL JANE: Battled on the pace and weakened to third as
the favorite in her latest; can prove worthy $20k-claim for trainer J. Sharp, a
former M. Maker assistant who has begun his training career strongly.
BRINK OF WAR: Gave way early to finish ninth in latest
disappointment; perhaps colt returned a bit quick following second-place finish
in September return from two-month break and can now rebound.
4*SPECIAL: WOULDN’T YOU KNOW: Fought it out on the pace and
weakened to third when dropped to MCL ranks for his first start since late-December;
primed now for trainer D. Miller.
LONGSHOT: ZIP N RUN: Showed speed and gave out to finish
fourth when switched back to dirt and making his first start since
early-August; value play next time.
PEARL OF WISDOM: Raced wide throughout latest route and
understandably faded from contention to finish sixth in his first start since
mid-July; another chance.
MICHAEL’S TRIBUTE: Couldn’t follow up sharp Sept. 24 placing
when fifth on stretch to route for her latest; seems as though she needs sprint
trip for best.
ESTRADA’S GIRL: Rallied wide to be up in time to post her
third victory from last four starts most recently; in the exacta in 14 of 31
starts, so plenty of room on our tickets for her.
PINK HERO: Raced inside and didn’t threaten in latest
fourth-place finish on return to main track following pair of turf sprints, but
figures sharper for next time; proven veteran.
RINKA DOT: Showed some interest late to be along for fifth
in useful return from late-July break most recently; offers value, so consider
4*SPECIAL: GLOBAL RISK: Moved to contention, but didn’t give
his best finish in fourth-place try when after repeat score in his latest; can
rebound for solid Cody Beattie barn (26% wins this year).
LONGSHOT: KISSED AND MISSED: Battled inside on the pace and
gave out to finish fifth in his latest; might surprise the right group if able
to shake free from the bell.
