HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
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
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.
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.
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
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.
