HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


AQUEDUCT

AT LARGE: Tried the dirt for the first time last out in his 14th start, chased the heavy favorite early on over the muddy, took over into the lane and drew off to an easy win by more than five lengths, follow right back against better.

BRIDGET MOLONEY: Was claimed for $12.5k two back, moved up to face $20k statebred claimers, took the blinkers off, was outrun early on but did come running late to finish second at 9-1; fits nicely at this level.

BYRON’S POP: Well bred three year old gelding by Empire Maker was purchased for $625,000 as a yearling, made his debut at Saratoga against $75k maiden claimers, chased and tired, was claimed from that start and ran evenly versus $40k claimers, dropped again to maiden $20k and got the win, can get on a roll now.

IN SPEIGHT OFITALL: Was a solid winner three back scoring over maiden $40k claimers, was up the track two back but ran a decent fourth last out, follow right back with a turn back in distance.

KOVARRO: Two year old gelding was sent off at 11-1 in his debut, chased the pace from the start and into the lane but tired to finish fifth, tab on the stretchout.

MACH SEVEN: Finally broke his maiden two back against $20k maiden claimers over the slop, moved up to face winners last out and closed well through the lane to just miss by a head at 47-1; follow right back with similar in current form.

MINE OVER MATTER: Hard hitting seven year old New York bred was coming back off a February layoff last out, broke out at the start and bumped with another rival and trailed after that and into the lane before passing one rival late, give this one another look with that race under his belt.

PARTY ON: Three year old gelding ran an even sixth in his debut back in August, added blinkers for his last start, got away in sixth, raced wide around the turn but couldn’t get to the leaders checking in a well beaten fourth, a drop back down into a maiden claimer gets the job done.

TASHREEH: Well bred runner only showed four published works for his debut run, was outrun badly over a sloppy track and never really got going checking in a well beaten sixth, should move up off that effort for top barn.

WESDREWMAX: Two year old filly was sent off at 20-1 in her debut, chased down inside from fourth but couldn’t go with the leaders tiring to finish fifth late, should improve off that effort and offers some value.

BEST BET: QUICK MONEY: Came out running last out and took it to the other speed horses, opened up into the lane but couldn’t hold on just missing by a neck as the slight favorite, was claimed by the Rudy Rodriguez barn and will prove tough next out.

LONGSHOT: COLOR BLIND: Five year old mare has some backclass to call on, was racing in fifth early on over a good track last out in an off the turf race, moved into fourth at the top of the lane but didn’t make an impact late checking in a well beaten fourth at 18-1; tab at a price over a fast track.

 

  

 

 

 

LAUREL

KOH I NOOR: Was a good second two back going a mile, turned back in distance last out, was outrun behind a sharp half mile in 45:2 and closed well to finish third at 11-1; tab at any distance in current form.

NO BRAKES: Hard hitting nine year old gelding was outrun behind slow fractions last out, moved into fifth around the turn and finished well for third to the favorite, can get there with a pace up front.

PATRIOT SAINT: Two year old was adding blinkers last out and making his second career start when bet down to 5-1, was outrun early on racing well back, came very wide into the lane, passed a few horses checking in sixth, one more shot.

Q’S JACK: Was turning back in distance to seven furlongs last out, got away in fourth early on, made a good move to get second but couldn’t get to the winner checking in second at 8-1, tab on the claim back.

STUDENT PILOT: Speedy runner came out running again last out but got hooked up in a head to head battle to the top of the lane before tiring to finish fifth at 7-1; can pop at a price if he can clear off early on.

BEST BET: SUPER SHARP: Two year old filly by Super Saver was claimed for $15 two back when she lost at 2-5, moved up to face off against maiden special weight company and stretched out to a mile, set the pace from the start and held well to finish second at 36-1; tab right back.

LONGSHOT: MORE PUNCH: Eight year old mare has been off form for a while now, was outrun through a half mile in 47:2 but did put in a run to finish fourth at 75-1; fits with NW3L $5k claimers, especially at a price.
