HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
DR. TOOLE: Super Saver firster from red-hot barn seemed to
figure it out too late to finish a well-beaten fourth behind a runaway winner.
Onward and upward.
INDIANAUGHTY: Looking forward to seeing this son of Indian Charlie
get back on grass after a couple of failed attempts to get on the Triple Crown
trail. U.S. debut over the GP lawn in mid-January was quite solid.
LAWYER JIM: Solid enough turfer–just needs to be spotted
properly. Overdue for a win and coming off a good third-place finish.
RIZWAN: Cranked out back-to-back wins on the grass here,
then switched to dirt with a strong second. In good hands with Gleaves.
SILVER DAGGER: Took a major step forward with a switch to grass to
place third at 46-1 after leading in the stretch. In good hands with Romans.
STREET CHIEF: Took a while to figure it out--graduated at 14th
asking and finished a good second at 18-1 in first try versus winners--but
trying him in the Pan American didn’t make a whole lot of sense. Gets back on
track in a more reasonable spot.
BEST BET: TINTO MESA: Pletcher firster ran well in defeat to finish fourth
after hopping at the start and taking the turn five wide. Should be very tough
LONGSHOT: DUSTYMOUR (IRE): Continues to race himself into shape since the
layoff. Capable of much better if he runs back to his form from last summer.
ARROM BEAR: Toss his February attempt when he was bumped at the
start, and he’s done very little wrong in these parts. Get on board.
AWESOME LOOKN: You have to go pretty far back in her pp’s to find a
poor performance. Looking good.
BLAMEITONTHECAT: Has really stepped up her game in three starts since
joining the Steve Sherman barn. Gets her paws on one.
BOTTLE BLONDE (GB): Out of action for a while, but always seems to show
up. Capable over either surface here for top barn.
MICROBURST: Awesome Again filly continues to train smartly for
her debut. Keep this one on stable mail.
SKY FOREVER: Returned from a June layoff with a runaway win at
the n2L level. Makes it three straight.
TIZAPLAYER: Very speedy and finishes first or second at a high
clip. Lightly raced 5yo can fire fresh off the bench.
YANKEE REBEL: Banked $100k in SoCal, so you know this guy can run
a little bit. On the comeback trail after spending a year on the bench.
BEST BET: SUMMER HIT: Loaded with backclass and ran a huge second in a
salty allowance race while making his first attempt since June. Gets his
LONGSHOT: MONSAJEM PERVADE: Back-to-back sneaky efforts at 89-1 and 36-1 should
be enough to take this maiden serious for next time. Get on board.
