HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


LAUREL

AIX EN PROVENCE: Seven year old mare got away in good order from her rail post, took over after a quarter mile, opened up into the lane and never looked back scoring by more than four lengths, follow right back.

C V OUTLAW: Chased and pressed the odds-on early leader, was still there after a half mile but couldn’t go with the leaders and tired to finish fourth at 16-1; tab this runner right back with NW3L $15k claimers.

CANAL STREET: Seven year old gelding got away in fourth early on, made a good move to take over the lead at the ¾ mark but couldn’t finish it off checking in third at 8-1; must respect.

NICELY PLAYED: Didn’t show much of anything in her first two starts, dropped again to a $10.5k maiden claimers, chased the pace over a muddy/sealed surface, dropped back to fourth and then came again to finish third at 41-1; stay close.

SET TO GO: Five year old gelding got away in second early on, dropped back a bit but then ran on well through the lane to get up for the win; follow right back similar.

BEST BET: MIDDLE JEWEL: Four year old filly is in sharp form with two wins in January, moved up into a $11k claimers, made a good move to get into second but had to settle for the place spot, sharp now.

LONGSHOT: MIMIPAOPONCHIS: Was making just her second start since November and only her second start over the Laurel Park race course, was away in fifth early on last out, closed some ground through the lane to finish a distant third at 30-1; should be a price right back with similar.

 

 

FAIR GROUNDS

BLUE GRASS MARY: Four year old Louisiana bred by Bluessgrass Cat made her career debut last out going six furlongs, took money going off at 2-1, chased the pace from the inside but had to settle for third, tab off that effort.

CHUCKS TURN: Made one start in 2014 and that was a win over the synthetic surface at Arlington Park back in May, returned against NW3L $15k claimers last out in an off the turf race, chased the second place runner throughout but had to settle for a distant second, could be all set if he comes back quickly.

MR. ERIN: Took a drop and moved back to the dirt last out, chased a sharp pace from third early on, moved into second but couldn’t get to the wire to wire winner, stay close.

TRIDENT HERO: Four year old colt was making his first start over the turf last out, chased a sharp 44:4 half mile in a turf sprint last out began to tire into the lane and checked in fifth at 23-1; could improve off that effort.

WILD STUDENT: Took the blinkers off for his last start, showed much improved speed from third last out over a sloppy/sealed surface but had to check in a distant third at 14-1, follow with conditioned $5k claimers.

BEST BET: CATHEDRA: Three year old filly was sold for $25k as a yearling back in 2013, made her debut last out over the turf and was sent off at 17-1; was away slowly racing in ninth but put in a good run to finish fourth only three necks off the winner, follow.

LONGSHOT: TRUKARMA: Was sent off at 32-1 last out against NW3L $5k claimers, chased the leader from the start, took over past the ¾ mark but tired in the lane to finish fourth, give this one another look with similar especially at a price.
