HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
LOCUST TRACE: Was able to reach a forward spot early from
a wide post and draw clear for nice win in her latest; daughter of Elite
Squadron takes another.
FANCITA MAE: Couldn’t reel in wire-to-wire winner in her
latest, but did all she could with clear second-place effort; try again for
trainer J. Oviedo.
PICKIN POCKETS: Rallied for third in tight finish when
making her first start since a fifth-place finish at BtP in mid-September;
rallies next time to take measure of cheapies.
MUSICINTHEHOUSE: Set the pace, shook clear in the lane,
and weakened in the late stages to manage third when in from CD for his latest;
follow for owner/trainer M. Pinzon.
SET THE SAIL: Classy veteran settled for sixth when in
from CD for latest stakes attempt; note, he did stumble at the break in his
latest, and can be a major player here this winter in the right spots.
CHARMING TALULLAH: Chased throughout in game fashion in
her debut placing behind winner who clearly led throughout; follow for trainer
KERISMA: Went favored when in from CD for her latest
attempt, but could only mount a rally for third after she was reserved early in
a race where top two finishers were pace players throughout; another tumble.
TALIESIN: Put in prolonged run to be along in time for
win by a head in her latest when always wide; must respect right back with
RAFEEN: Finished five lengths clear for the place award
when behind front-running winner in his latest; his turn for graduation next
4*SPECIAL: B B THE KING: Settled early between rivals,
rallied wide, and loomed boldly in the lane but could only ultimately manage
third in his latest; sustained run for score next time.
LONGSHOT: GHOST TIME: Probably wasn’t helped by post
position 12 when sixth in his latest start; can certainly improve upon wide
GIA SCALA: Took tote play and could only manage mild bid for
fourth in her most recent effort; capable of more, and deserving of another
JARGON: Raced tenth early and improved his position to
fifth in his latest; needs pace/race luck to set up late move.
HUMMINGBIRD: Managed fourth of 10 when one of only two
first-time starters in her debut spot; plenty to build on.
SMOKING FOR FREE: Shook off pace pressure, led by two
lengths in the lane, and lasted for narrow score in his latest; respect for
chance at another in current sharp form.
SOUL GLEAM: Broke eighth out of 10 in his latest, and did
put in a bid to pick up fourth; stay on board with G. Albright trainee.
4*SPECIAL: DEPUTY CAVALIER: Made the pace and weakened to
third, when beaten only a neck for second, in his latest; try again for trainer
LONGSHOT: HOW COME: Played chasing role behind winner who
was always clear and returned $3.00 as the betting favorite in dominant win;
improves upon fourth-place try at square ticket.
