HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
ALL OVER ME: Moved up from a win
against NW3L $16k claimers at Monmouth, set a sharp pace last out against
statebred allowance foes, was still right there in deep stretch but tired to
finish sixth at 17-1; offers some value right back.
AMAZING ANNE: Got a good spot
early on behind the leaders racing in fourth, lost her position on the turf and
dropped back a bit before she came running for third, fits with NW1X statebred
allowance foes right back.
BROKEN BORDER: Took a tough beat
last out at 29-1 when altering course in deep stretch and had to settle for
second, should still offer value right back and will be tough at a square
CHAPMAN: Has ability but
does have some issues, was off since April last out dropping into a $25k
claimer, pressed the leader but couldn’t finish it off checking in fourth late,
may have needed that race and could be followed right back especially if he
returns within a few weeks.
CORNER THREE: Was sent off as the
favorite after breaking her maiden at first asking at Belmont, raced well back
behind very slow splits and came wide into the lane checking in 6th,
give her one more chance, tab.
FINALIZE: Four year old
gelding made his debut last out, sprinted over the turf, was outrun early on in
fifth but put in a solid late run to finish second just a nose off the winner,
was claimed and could prove tough with maiden special weights.
HANNIBAL LECTER: Got a good rail
trip, shot through into the lane to challenge for the lead but couldn’t go with
the backclassy favorite checking in second, tab with $25k claimers right back.
NATIVE GOLD: Lost all chance at
the start when getting off in 11th and last, had too much to do
racing behind moderate splits and checked in 8th late at 3-1; was
claimed and should be follow right back.
PRIEST N THE RABBI: Three year old
gelding who was purchased for $185,000 as a yearling made his debut against
$40k statebred maiden claimers, broke in sixth early on, made a wide move down
the backside to get into contention but tired late to finish 9th,
offers value right back with similar.
SLIM SHADEY: Seven year old
gelding raced well back last out under restraint, was still well back into the
lane and finished well for a close-up fourth, follow right back with allowance
optional $80k claimers.
TIZ ADORE: Well bred runner
was sent off at 13-1 for her debut, took a very bad stumble at the start and
trailed throughout, had been working all along leading up to her debut and can
surprise at long odds right back.
UNDERTHERAIN: Was an easy winner
two back against maiden $40k claimers, moved up into a starter allowance race,
set the pace from the start and into the lane but tired to finish fourth at
11-1; fits right back.
BEST BET: MISS ANNA MARIE: Was keyed up in the
post parade losing some energy before her debut run last out, was off step slow
but rushed up to press the pace through fractions of 21:4, 45 flat before
tiring to finish a well beaten fourth at 5-2; gets it done with that race under
LONGSHOT: SWEET NKOSI: Six year old mare trailed
the field behind decent splits last out but could only manage a fifth place
finish, needs a more contentious pace right back at long odds.
FIRST RONIN: Turned back in
distance last out and broke running from the rail, battled for the lead through
a half mile in 44:4 but couldn’t go with the two leaders checking in third,
fits $5k NW3L claimers, tab.
HERSISTERISACHUB: Made her debut last
out against statebred $12.5k claimers, was sent off at 9-5 for her debut,
showed some speed stalking the pace early on but tired in the lane to finish 7th,
was claimed and should be followed right back.
HOARDER: Was making his
return from a March layoff last out, broke in good order, was wide into the
first turn, made a premature wide move down the backside, battled through the
lane with the favorite but had to settle for second.
TAIPAN’S ADVANTAGE: Moved back to the
turf for his last start, broke from post 10, trailed the field early on, moved
up to get into 7th into the lane, steadied in the lane and checked
in sixth, a move back to the dirt is in order.
WISE CHILD: Tried the turf for
the first time last out, was outrun early on racing in sixth and last but
didn’t do much running into the lane checking in fifth at 6-1; gained some
conditioning from that start and a move back to the turf is in order.
BEST BET: SCUBA SUE: Three year old filly came
out running in third, moved up to challenge the leaders into the lane, took
over but couldn’t hold on late checking in a clear second, very tough right
LONGSHOT: TWO MORE JACS: Five year old gelding
was a good third two back after setting the pace, came out running again last
out but got used up in the pace tiring to finish 8th at 11-1; can be
tough if he can clear off early on, follow.
