HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


CHURCHILL DOWNS

LOUWALA CLOUGH: Rated, rallied to lead in the stretch, and ultimately gave way to finish second behind easy winner; stays sharp now following prior pair of dull tries.

MORE THAN NOBLE: Put in a sustained rally over good ground to gain second after racing last of seven early most recently; proven type has been on the board in 24 of 53 lifetime tries.

SEEKING PARADISE: Pressed the pace from the outside and weakened to finish sixth in latest off-the-turf sprint attempt; daughter of Blame can improve upon first try with winners and return from brief break.

QUEEN’S PRINCESS: Showed needed improved early and overall interest when able to press the pace outside and stay on for fourth in her latest; coming around.

BENNY’S BOMBSHELL: Rolled in debut, finished fifth in follow-up, and hasn’t been seen since early-2014; spotted gearing up on local workout tab, so stay with her.

STARBOUND: Remains a maiden after seven starts, and hasn’t raced since late-March, but brings early speed and is gearing up for local return; missed by a head over this track once before.

CARLITO: Shows a good string of workouts over local strip in preparation for 3YO racing debut; follow daughter of Line of David.

KING OF NEW YORK: Missed by just a neck when second in his first attempt with winners in early-April at Oaklawn; prepping locally for return.

SWEET WHISKEY: Has finished on the board in eight of 12 starts and most recently managed a close third in graded company at GP; prepping locally for first appearance here.

4*SPECIAL: SEVE: Lightly raced 6YO rated, moved to the lead, and drew off to wallop four rivals in his latest; might finally be beginning to fulfill some promise previously shown.

LONGSHOT: DISCREETLY YOURS: Gained wide to pick up fourth over good ground when making his first career attempt for a claiming tag in his latest; stay on board, he can still offer value.

 

PENN NATIONAL

WEEKEND WEDDING: Took class drop to appropriate level for her latest and responded with wide run for third; lightly raced 4YO filly figures a player with similar.

SISTER JANICE: Rated, rallied to lead in the stretch, and weakened when it counted to finish third in her latest on stretch to route trip; next time.

THE LAST ROSE: Raced wide and finished a good third to gain late in useful career debut; worth following for trainer Sandee Martin.

EDDIE’SINTHEWOODS: Rated just off the pace, took over, and drew out to score easily in his latest; can take next at NW3L level.

TASTEFULLY SIMPLE: Didn’t factor in outcome when fifth in her latest, but was making her first start since mid-December; moves forward quickly.

4*SPECIAL: U S MAUREEN: Rated, moved wide, and never really fired her best shot when fourth as the favorite in her latest; worth another chance off $4k-claim by trainer M. Sims.

LONGSHOT: GROGGER: Outran her price of nearly 34-1 in her racing debut when she finished up for  third of six at sprint trip; pedigree suggests turf and/or distance could be in her future.

 

WOODBINE

PHIL IN THE BLANK: Pressed the pace and weakened to finish fourth of five when in blinkers for the first time and back on relatively short notice for his second start of the season; next time.

MIZZEN THE ACTION: Raced wide and in game fashion to remain an even fourth in his first start since December most recently; another chance.

MALBEC: Rated and rallied in good overall effort to pick up second on switch to synthetic for his latest; stay on board for upcoming third start of current form cycle.

COSMIC CHARLIE: Set the pace and stayed on for third when on Lasix for the first time in his return from December-layoff; figures sharp moving forward off sprint return.

DUFFINS: Chased and weakened when “herded,” according to chart, and finished fourth in her latest; can step up in upcoming third lifetime start.

4*SPECIAL: NORTHERN HAMMER: Stalked the pace and rallied when able to finish second, beaten a head, in just his second start since in as a fresh face by way of PRX; next time.

LONGSHOT: SOCCER RYAN: Chased inside and never really got on track when a distant fifth in his latest by way of CT; benefits and can surprise.
