HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


BELMONT

CONGARETTE: Had shown some solid works leading up to her debut which came at six furlongs over the turf, was in good position around the far turn but took a very awkward step and had to take up checking in 9th late at 26-1; give her another look at long odds.

DARK ROAST: Pressed the pace from the start last out through some very solid fractions, was still right there into the lane but couldn’t get by the leader just missing the place spot by a nose checking in third, all set now.

DOWNGOESFRAZIER: Six year old gelding was coming off a November layoff last out, stalked the leaders from third last out while sprinting over the turf and checked in third late, may have needed that race and should be all set now.

DUNN LISTENING: Was off since November, showed much improved speed battling for more than a ¼ mile before tiring to finish seventh at 24-1; must respect right back at long odds.

FINN’S QUEST: Was outrun early on racing in seventh, moved up gradually around the turn and closed some ground to finish third, NW3L $35k claimers looks like a good fit, tab off the claim.

FLOWER KISSER: Took plenty of money for her debut going off as the 7-2 second choice, was bumped hard after the start and checked in sixth late, look for this two year old with a more to the turf next out.

REGGIE D: Six year old gelding needs a pace to get the job done but raced well behind a half mile in 47 flat and checked in sixth at 7-1; can pop at a price with a pace up front, follow.

SPIDER ROLL: Was in a good spot early on racing in fifth, couldn’t go with the leaders as they moved around the far turn and tired to finish 8th at 30-1; needs a drop into a NW2L claimer on either surface.

TEN TWENTY: Three year old made his career debut last out, going 1 and 1/16th miles over the turf, raced well back early on in ninth, was in between horses thereafter, finishing well for fourth at 5-1; fits in against $40k maiden claimers.

WHATS UP BIG GUY: Four year old gelding was always well bet in his first three starts but had been a disappointment going 0 for his first 7, however, a drop into a maiden $20k claimer did the trick as he ran away and hid scoring by more than four lengths.

BEST BET: ROSSEZZA: Two year old filly was making her career debut last out, got left about five lengths behind the field in a five furlong event, started to move up around the turn and finished well for fourth, galloping out well past the wire, should appreciate more ground.

LONGSHOT: FILE FOR DIVORCE: This New York bred has showed some ability in his 10 race career but doesn’t have anything to show for it never hitting the board, checked in a troubled fifth last out when taking the blinkers, needs a rider change next out and will offer value.

 

 

 

MONMOUTH

ALL FOR US: Was coming off a September 2013 layoff last out when he was last seen breaking his maiden, was outrun in ninth early on behind moderate splits and passed some horses late to finish fifth at 14-1; four year old gelding should move way up next out.

DISTINCTIVELYGREAT: Started out his career going two for two, was way up the track when trying the turf two back, dropped back into a beaten $40k claimer, came out running from the start, battled head to head for the lead but tired late, will prove tough if he clears off early on.

FROCKLING GAL: Showed improved early speed last out when moving into the Navarro barn but couldn’t sustain that run and tired to finish a well beaten 8th, give this one another look with another drop in class.

TWELVE STONE: Got a perfect trip while racing inside behind some very sharp fractions, couldn’t go with the sharp leader in the lane and tired to finish sixth at 23-1; needs a drop in class, tab.

UNRULY HEIR: Added blinkers for his last start, just his second since November, came out running for the lead, opened up a clear lead through the first ¼ mile but couldn’t go on with it tiring to finish sixth at 9-1; should be all set now, tab.

BEST BET: DELTA BLUESMAN: Was coming off an April 30th layoff, broke a step slow but quickly rushed up to take over the lead and set the pace through a half mile in 44:4; couldn’t go with the leaders in the lane and checked in third, follow for sharp barn.

LONGSHOT: CALI THIRTY SEVEN: Three year old filly was a solid maiden winner three back, ran evenly in her first start with winners two back, tried the turf for the first time last out, chased the early pace, was right there into the lane but couldn’t hold on late checking in third at 41-1; all set now.
