HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


FAIR GROUNDS

CLASS LEADER: Was two for two over this track heading into his last start, his first since October, was away in last early on, made a good move to take over the lead into the lane only to get nailed late by a neck; four year old has a future.

CLASSY LULU: Came out running from the inside post last out, set a pressured pace from the start and into the lane and tired to finish fourth late at 6-1; should be all set right back; follow.

DON’T PLAY TRICKS: Four year old gelding was hard ridden early on while racing in ninth, made a good move to get into third but couldn’t finish it off checking in fourth at 77-1; must respect right back.

GENERAL HOLLY: Four year old gelding was coming off a good third at this level two back, chased the pace from third while racing three wide, moved into second behind the wire to wire winning favorite but had to settle for third late, fits with NW3L $5k claimers.

TIME CATCHER: Three year old by Temple City was making his career debut last out going a mile over the turf, was outrun some early on, started to gain on the final turn and finished well for fourth at 28-1, should improve for top barn.

BEST BET: OSIDY CAT: Three year old was outrun early on when returning from a two month layoff, was bumped hard from both sides at the start of the race, trailed the field of 10 early on and closed well to finish fourth; improving sort should be followed right back.

LONGSHOT: DELUSIONAL K K: Three year old filly was making her first start over the turf last out, was away in last early on, raced in 8th for most of the race before closing well to finish a close-up fifth at 15-1; tab this runner right back over the dirt.

 

 

 

TAMPA

ANITA PARTNER: Was coming off a maiden win against $50k maiden claimers, moved up to face off against NW1X optional claiming $75k, broke from the rail, stalked from fifth early on, moved up into third but just couldn’t go with the leaders late checking in fourth at 22-1; tab.

BURNING SKY: Turned back in distance and move back to the dirt, was outrun early on from post 9, was still well back past the half but closed well to finish third at 27-1; respect this runner with NW2L $8k claimers.

CHEER N SHOUT: Six year old mare got away in third early on, moved to the lead past the ¾ mark but couldn’t hold off the easy winner checking in second at 7-1; must respect this runner right back with NW2L $8k claimers.

LETSGOTOVEGAS: Four year old filly was making her second career start last out, was off since June and was sent off as the 3-2 favorite, got away in fifth and never really made a run checking in fifth late, needed the race and should improve right back.

TAX BREAKER: Put in a big effort last out when battling on the lead throughout, right from the start and into the lane coming up a neck short at 4-1; can be tough with time restricted claimers right back.

BEST BET: HYMAN ROTH: Was coming off a bad effort two back against $10k claimers on the dirt at Aqueduct, faced off against optional $62.5k claimers, pressed the leader from the start and into the lane but tired late to finish a good fifth at 28-1; needed that race and fits well with lesser.

LONGSHOT: KENTONIA: Five year old mare came out running for the lead last out, set a pressured pace from the start and into the lane tiring only late to finish third at 34-1; is a threat to lead all the way next out at a price.
