HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
WICKLOW GRAY LADY: Tipped outside and couldn’t threaten top
two when a distant third in her latest, but can be used underneath in exotics;
demand some value.
MISS CELEB: Showed the way on the pace, was displaced, and
took up in the stretch once passed and finished fourth (third via DQ of rival);
deserving of another shot.
ENCHANTED DREAMS: Couldn’t overcome extreme outside post
position (10) and wide journey when sixth in five-furlong turf dash most
recently; prior placing with softer company was solid.
MR BRIONI: Rated, moved to contend, and flattened a bit when
it counted in his latest third-place finish on class hike to ALW level in his
second start since claimed by trainer M. Pino; stay with him.
URQUIA: Stalked the pace, led in the lane, was carried out,
and faded from contention late when fourth in her latest on move to turf;
versatile sort brings back checks.
4*SPECIAL: NEW YAWKER: Hard-knocking 9YO gelding stayed on
as the favorite for his 14th lifetime win most recently, and has 20
additional on-the-board finishes from 60 starts; must-use.
LONGSHOT: NEEDLE IN THE HAY: Turned in an even effort for
sixth of nine when in from TAM as a relatively fresh face for his latest;
expect continued improvement from lightly raced 3YO.
OXNARD: Showed some needed life with mild late finish for
sixth in his first start since last-October when in from IND; another chance at
MAJOR DARBY: Made up a lot of ground off a slow break and
through traffic to pick up fifth when barn showed confidence with ALW placement
in his second start back from brief break; upside.
SISTER LILLY: Battled wide on the pace and gave out to
finish seventh of 11 in her latest, but was meeting winners for the first time
after 20 tries to score at maiden level; value stab.
BROOM BROOM: Set a clear pace and drove clear through the
lane for 3 ¼-length maiden score on class plunge most recently; right back in
EMMETT PARK: Was jostled at the break and put in a wide run,
according to the chart, and surrendered stretch lead to fall a neck short when
second as the favorite in his latest; atones.
CARDINAL GIRL: Had early trouble and moved wide to put in
run for fourth in off-the-turf spot most recently; return to better form
somewhat encouraging, but turf might be calling.
LOLLIPOP (ARG): Dueled on the pace and stayed on throughout
to finish a close second in a group of 11 most recently; speed makes him a
player with cheapies.
ARCH ANGEL: Tipped out and gained to finish a fair fourth on
move to turf most recently; honest sort must be considered on any surface.
GREY OAK: Put in willing run for third when making his first
start since last-October most recently; had last been seen finishing a distant
eight, so tab the effort one to build on.
4*SPECIAL: HEBBRONVILLE: Withstood pace pressure throughout
to stay gamely for half-length win at odds-on when in from PIM for his latest;
well-traveled 3YO with touch of class moves forward.
LONGSHOT: BOOMER SIX: Put in a mild bid and gave way to
sixth in off-the-turf try most recently; does bring synthetic form and some
pedigree to give turf a tumble.
