HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


CHURCHILL DOWNS

HONE IN: Now has a pair of races under her saddle since back from brief break, and most recently showed improved early and overall interest when moved to dirt for third-place finish; next time.

BROUGHTON KITTEN: Gained from well back to finish third in blanket finish when in with winners for the first time off debut win at IND; upside for juvenile colt by Kitten’s Joy.

ELUSIVE HOLIDAY: Didn’t threaten when fifth of 10 in acceptable racing debut at long odds; experience likely to serve daughter of Harlan’s Holiday well for solid C. LoPresti barn.

OL SANISH: Chased briefly and gave out to finish ninth with blinkers added for her latest; daughter of Curlin capable of more in upcoming third start of current form cycle.

I FLY FIRST CLASS: Hadn’t breezed since mid-June, but shows a pair of October works here in preparation for upcoming racing debut; follow juvenile daughter of Offlee Wild.

SOL D’ORO: Son of Medaglia d’Oro commanded $360k a couple of years ago as auction yearling, and shows long string of local works in advance of racing debut; worth following.

FOLLOW BOURBON: Has trained steadily in advance of her racing debut, and bears watching based on pattern of steady improvement of late; works haven’t been blistering, so should offer value.

RHINESTONE DIVA: Flashed speed and stopped to finish sixth of seven when up in class in search of repeat in her last start here in early-September; freshening pays dividends now.

QUICK INDIAN: Once promising sort has really dropped off of late, but shows pair of October workouts here for always capable M. Scherer barn and can turn things around; big price.

4*SPECIAL: MR PALMER: Hasn’t raced since second-place finish at Belmont in late-May, but resurfaced recently on local workout tab; strong sort when back in entries for powerhouse B. Mott barn.

LONGSHOT: INFINITE MAGIC: Has dropped off form drastically of late, and was last seen at AP in sixth-place try in September; training here now, and capable of turnaround.

 

PENN NATIONAL

INDIGO ISLAND: Has flopped as the favorite in each of his last two, most recently with mild late bid for fourth when in from PRX; one last shot.

STREET INVADER: Led throughout in dominant score when in off sixth-place try over PRX turf course; keeps rolling for C. Lynch barn (32% wins this year).

THIS MIGHT BE: Raced inside and weakened to fifth in useful debut try; expect son of Talent Search to show more early and overall interest for S. Lake barn in second career start.

BLAZE WICK: Settled for second behind four-length winner in her latest; versatile filly has been on the board in 15 of 20 lifetime starts, so include in gimmicks.

DUE IN COURT: Gave mild rally for third in useful try when making her first attempt with winners while also asked to stretch to route; can improve for solid C. Crane barn.

4*SPECIAL: CHLOE’S WONDERBOY: Sharp R. Preciado barn (30% wins this year) has shown confidence in placement of gelding since MCL win three starts back; moves forward off latest fifth-place try.

LONGSHOT: GREY GATOR: Gave more than acceptable account with even finish for fourth in his first start since mid-March most recently; can offer value and improve next time.
