HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
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
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,
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.
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
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.
