HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
DOC CURLIN: Was sent off at
34-1 last out in his career debut which came against $75k maiden claimers over
the turf, was away in 8th, made a huge wide move to challenge the
leaders into the lane and came up a nose short, tough with that race under his
ICE CREAM TRUCK: Chased the pace
while wide from the far outside post 8 last out but couldn’t go any better than
an even sixth at 11-1; a drop to basement claimers gets the job done, follow.
MANAHATTA: Was coming off a
September layoff last out, chased the sharp pace from the inside but tired in
the lane to finish fourth at 5-1; needed that race for sharp barn and should be
all set now.
MASCARELLO: Took plenty of
money in his debut run over the main track back in April, added blinkers and
moved to the turf last out, pressed the pace while racing greenly and tired to
finish 8th, give this one another shot back on the dirt, tab.
PAYMENT TERMS: Was sent off at 8-1
for his debut run, was away in sixth behind sharp splits, made a good move to
get into contention into the lane but had to settle for third late despite some
interference in the drive, follow right back.
PUCA: Has been racing
against graded stakes company since her maiden score, most recently a 7th
place finish in an impossible start over the turf, give her a look right back
on either surface as she should offer some value.
SALEM LOOP: Broke from post 10
last out, chased a sharp pace over the turf from midpack before checking in a
close-up fifth late in his first turf try, give this one a look right back off
SPANGO: Four year old
gelding dropped into a NW3L $14k claimer last out, set the pace right from the
start, was still there at the top of the lane but tired to finish third at 4-1;
will be tough with similar off the claim.
TIZALLHEART: Was making just her
second start off a November layoff last out, showed the way through decent
splits going 1 and ¼ miles before tiring in the lane to finish fourth at 41-1;
a drop into claimers will do.
YOUR TURN: Finished a good
third two back over the turf when going seven furlongs, was outrun early on
last out when going six furlongs and finished well, give this one another look
right back with a bit more distance.
BEST BET: CAPTAIN MOSS: Tried the turf for the
first time last out, set the pace through moderate fractions, was still there
at the top of the lane and spurted away to score by more than four lengths, was
claimed out of that race and should be followed right back with winners.
LONGSHOT: DARK ROAST: Returned from a 14 month
layoff last out as a first time gelding, showed good early speed pressing the
pace, took over that lead around the turn but tired in the drive to finish
fifth, followed right back off that effort at a solid price.
MISS WELL MOLDED: Backclassy six year
old mare was claimed for $16k at Tampa Bay back in early April, set a decent
pace last out against allowance optional claimers last out, was still there
into the lane but tired to finish fourth at 16-1; follow right back.
NEIDERMEYER: Five year old
gelding moved into the Ramon Preciado barn three starts ago, put two wins in a
row against restricted claimers at Parx racing, moved up and moved to the turf
last out, chased the leader but tired to finish fifth, back to the main track
POMEROY’S PACKAGE: Came out running
from the start, pressed the through some solid splits from the start and into
the lane but couldn’t get by that rival but did hold onto to second by a neck
at 5-1; can prove tough if he makes the lead early on.
TELL TALE FRIEND: Seven year old
gelding was hard ridden early on to make the lead through swift fractions of
21:2, 43:4, 56 flat, was still there into the lane but got run down late by the
perfect trip winner, all set now for Navarro barn.
YOUR MOVE: Shipped in from
Aqueduct for her last start, came out running for the lead, set a very sharp
pace setting sharp fractions of 21:3, 44:3 but tired in the lane to finish
sixth at 7-1; a drop will do especially over this track.
BEST BET: SHE’S HOT WIRED: Was off since November
and was moving into the Jason Servis barn for the first time last out, got away
in fourth, moved into third at the top of the lane but tired to finish third to
the heavy favorite, should move way up off that effort, follow.
LONGSHOT: BATTLE TESTED: Three year old gelding
broke his maiden against maiden $50k claimers, came out running for the lead
battling through a half mile in 44:1 and tired in the drive to finish fourth
against allowance optional claimers at 21-1; could be all set now.
