HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
AWESOME HEART: Stretched back out
in distance last out, trailed the field early on behind moderate splits but did
close some ground to finish third at 23-1; is better sprinting, tab on the
COPERNICUS: Was dropped into a
$32k claimer last out, got away in third and was chasing the pace while racing
wide, was still in contention into the lane but couldn’t get the job done,
settling for second late, was claimed by sharp barn and must be respected right
FILLY IDOL: Was sent off at 9-2
for her debut last out, broke from the rail and chased the pace from fifth but
didn’t have any kick in the lane checking in seventh, respect this runner right
back off the claim, turf may be an option as well.
FLAG ON THE PLAY: Chased the pace
from third last out but just didn’t have it when it counted into the lane
tiring to finish fifth, was claimed by sharp Jason Servis barn and should be
GOPHER JR: Three year old was
sent off at 28-1 in his debut, got away in sixth from post 10 over a sloppy track
and finished an even fifth, beaten about nine lengths, should improve off that
effort and the price will be right.
KE IN MOTION: Is a much better
horse when able to make a clear lead but was rated in third early on last out
over a wet track, give this one another look next out especially with a more
PRAIRIE STONE: Four year old filly
came out racing in second chasing the loose on the lead frontrunner from the
start and into the lane but tired to finish fourth, follow this one back on the
main track next out.
SPECIAL OPS: Wintered in Florida
after finishing second against $40k maiden claimers back in December over the
inner track, stalked the leaders from fourth, moved to take over into the lane
and drew away smartly to score by more than five lengths, improving sort,
SWIVEL: Returned from a
December layoff last out to face winners for the first time, was outrun some
early on and close some ground in the lane to finish fourth at 16-1 behind the
odds-on choice, should move up off that effort and turf could be in his future.
BEST BET: REPARTEE: Well bred three year old
filly from the McLaughlin barn was sent off at 3-1 in her debut, she got away
in fourth early on, dropped back a bit but then was running well at the end to
finish fourth, will be very tough to beat right back, follow.
LONGSHOT: KING DIX C: Was easily the longest shot
on the board at 48-1 last out, was outrun over a sloppy/sealed surface for most
of the race, started to gain on the inside through the lane, angled out and
finished well for second, tab with NW3L $12.5k claimers.
BALLYKISS: Four year old filly
came away running in third early on, was still there into the lane but tired to
finish sixth at 11-1; follow this runner right back and look for a move to the
CAVITY: Three year old colt
made his debut last out against special weight company and was sent off at
11-1; rated in the back of the pack early on before passing a few rivals to
finish fifth, should improve with more ground.
FLASH HEART: Four year old got
away eighth behind some moderate splits, made a big move to get into third but
couldn’t get to the two leaders, follow with NW2L $5k claimers.
GATOR GOLD: Five year old
gelding came out running for the lead last out when making the first start off
the claim and finished up well just missing by a head, will prove very tough
right back with similar.
LIGHTNIN FAST GIRL: Four year old filly
came out running last out, set the pace while under pressure over a
muddy/sealed track and stayed on well for second, over nine lengths ahead of
the show horse, follow.
BEST BET: PRIDE OF WILKO: Was making her first
start off the claim last out, broke from the far outside post 10, raced in 7th
early on while very wide and closed some ground to finish fourth at 5-1; tab
with a better trip.
LONGSHOT: MY VET’S A GENIUS: Has been off form
since August of last year but did put in a good effort to finish fourth at
115-1 behind the two favorites, must respect right back especially with a drop
