HORSE TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
RACKMAN: Took the first turn wide, chased the pace, and
weakened to fourth when in from WO for his first start since late-November;
something to build on.
BET ON JACK: Overcame a slow break and rallied to clear
score to post repeat by way of WO for his latest; heavy hitter is true to his
name and has been on the board in 21 of 30 lifetime trips.
U S MAUREEN: Chased, led, and weakened to third in an
improved try getting back to route trip most recently; stays on our tickets.
START AGAIN: Took the first turn wide and settled for third
behind five-length winner when making just her third career start, and first at
route trip, most recently; developing sort.
LA GREY ZULIANA: Gave typically solid effort when she made
up plenty of ground late to finish second, beaten only a neck, in her latest;
in the exacta in 33 of 57 lifetime starts.
4*SPECIAL: BO BULL: Has chased and given out in both starts
since back from a two-month break, but didn’t have best chance from post
position 10 of 10 in her latest; moves up quickly now.
LONGSHOT: BUCK THIEF: Finished fourth, beaten only a couple
of lengths for second, in acceptable try on class rise most recently; could
surprise similar crew, as prior form was sharp.
OVERLAND PARK: Shows long string of workouts dating back to
late-October at RP in anticipation of his racing debut; decent works on local
surface since arrival make him one to follow.
DIESEL ONLY: Has yet to run a poor one through three career
starts, and most recently finished third at CD after show of early speed on
Nov. 27; steady local breezes for return.
CAPE SONG: Finished second when last seen in June at MTH,
but appears to be training very well locally now; daughter of Unbridled’s Song
gets maiden score.
SWEET DIVA: Began her career with a win and subsequent
placing at stakes level, only to fade to fifth when last raced in mid-December
allowance try at FG; curious to see how 3YO filly handles dirt here.
WE BE STORMIN: Won his maiden in off-the-turf route when
making just his second career start at LaD in mid-September and is unraced
since; interesting 3YO prospect is working well here.
4*SPECIAL: BLUESMAN: Finished second and then fourth in a
pair of tries on dirt at CD to begin his career, then could only manage seventh
in latest over FG turf; ready to rebound on local dirt.
LONGSHOT: DENALI SOUTH PEAK: Hasn’t raced since
early-September at RP, when he showed speed and faded to fourth; good prior
form and recent works here make him one to follow at square ticket.
