HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


LAUREL

STREET POET: Three year old gelding was a wire to wire winner back on New Year’s Day against $16k maiden claimers, faced off against winners, $25k claimers, set the pace from the start and into the lane but tired to finish third at 25-1; tab at a price.

CLASSIC SPEED: Eight year old gelding came out running for the lead, pressed the pace early on, took over after a ¼ mile and held that lead into the lane but just missed by a neck late, knows how to win and could be tough right back in current form, off the claim.

TOBY WHO: Closed well to finish second last out when against NW3L $5k claimers, finishing second to the runaway winning favorite, has a win and a second in her last two and fits with similar.

DOUBLE WHAMMY: Was an easy winner against NW2L $15k claimers last out as the even money favorite, was claimed out of that race and moved up to face off against NW1X allowance company, came out running for the lead, set the pace over a muddy/sealed strip from the start and into the lane but tired late to finish fourth at 8-1; respect right back.

EMELINA: Five year old mare was off since January 29th, got away in fourth early on from the outside, moved into second into the lane and was game down to the wire just missing by a head, follow right back.

BEST BET: ELTHAM: Six year old gelding had been off since December at Tampa Bay, got away in 5th early on, moved into third at the top of the lane but had to settle for fourth late, respect this runner next out.

LONGSHOT: ALLY WHO: Five year old gelding as making his 7th start last out but had been within 16 lengths of the winner until last out when he closed to finish third at 48-1; follow this runner right back with $12.5k maiden claimers right back at a price.

 

 

TAMPA

BONETOWN WILD: Five year old gelding was making his second start off a November layoff when he was taking a drop in class into a NW2X optional $32k claimer in a turf sprint, got away in fourth behind sharp splits and ran on through the lane to finish a close-up third at 20-1, solid.

KATHY’S KITTEN: Eight year old gelding came out running, set the pace through a solid half in 47:2, was passed after a half mile, came back again but just missed by a neck at 9-1; stay close on either surface.

MOONSHINE BLUES: Broke from post 9 last out, raced three wide early on racing in sixth, started to move around the final turn and finished well for second at 6-1; sitting on a win, tab.

QUEEN YAMILE: Seven year old mare came out running for the lead setting some solid splits, was still there into the lane but got nailed late just missing by a neck at 13-1; respect this runner right back with time restricted claimers.

SEE I A: Nine year old gelding was off since August heading into his last start, loves this track with 11 wins, came out battling for the lead but couldn’t finish it off checking in third late as the slight favorite, all set now.

BEST BET: ENDER’S UNIVERSE: Hard hitting eight year old gelding has been sharp in his last three races heading into his last race, got away in fifth early on and closed well to finish second to the even money favorite in a fast time, stay close right back.

LONGSHOT: PISTON BROKE: Was sent off at 25-1 in his debut going seven furlongs against $16k claimers, was outrun early on racing in 8th and passed some rivals in the lane to finish fifth, should move forward off that effort and the price will be right.
