HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


HAWTHORNE

CHEDDAR: Raced evenly throughout last time when finishing third and

 fits nicely with $8k claimers.

DEAD RINGER: Did make up some ground in the stretch to finish a well

 beaten third but was up against the speed bias, tab.

JUMP FOR JOYEUX: Was used hard battling for the lead last out and

tired to finish fourth in the drive; respect his early lick.

LIL THOMAS TOO: Raced in the middle of the pack early on but came with

 a strong run to get up to score by a head. Respect this 7YO off that effort

with any kind.

MISS DENOUNCER: Battled head to head through some solid fractions

 and tired late to finish third, beaten only two necks; can lead all the way

versus statebred allowance foes.

PRINCESS GRANDSLAM: Finished third last out as the slight choice after

 trailing the five horse field early on. The track was speed favoring so give

 her another shot next out.

SPOTTED STAR: Tried the favorite for a half mile but didn’t have enough left

 in the drive and had to settle for the place spot; graduates with maiden claimers.

 

4STARSPECIAL: FIGHTING FEVER: Was close-up to the pace while racing

four wide but couldn’t hold on late and settled for second. A danger to take it

all the way next out.

LONGSHOT: I’MA MIRACLE: This filly bucked the speed bias last out getting

 up to score by a neck despite coming with a wide run; follow with $4k claimers.

 

OAKLAWN

BOYUM: Lived up to odds-on billing with devastating score in latest, and

was claimed by trainer Pryor; back-classy 8YO keeps on rolling.

DIRTY MIKE: Maintained fourth throughout his latest, and all while hung wide;

 10YO gelding is a 16-time winner and one of our all-time favorites.

FIRM ACCELERATION: Battled between pace rivals and gave way in latest;

 can improve with better racing luck in second start off claim by trainer Hooper.

JOLIE’S THUNDER: Rated, rallied, and simply came up a head short as

odds-on choice in latest; head bob goes his way next time.

LEON’S BEST: Seems to be learning the rating game in pair of starts since return

 from four-month layoff, and education always pays.

NATGEAR: Fourth-place finish in career debut, in which he dueled and faded

 to fourth, will only help matters going forward.

RACING LUCK: Has the tactical speed to make her own racing luck, and as

 a result she should only continue to pick up checks; a must in gimmicks.

SUPREME SAM: Raced near pace throughout, and while between foes, in

nice third-place finish most recently; early shake would get him home.

TEXAS TREE: Battled on pace and stayed on gamely to finish second in latest;

 prior win was nice, and mare is simply in good form right now.

THIS IS DOC: Gained too late in most recent start, but seems headed in right

 direction in current form cycle; nabs NW2L types.

 

4STARSPECIAL: MAGIC WEAPON: Chased and tired in latest, but new barn

 showed confidence stepping her up in class off claim and racing her without

 front bandages; must follow.

LONGSHOT: QUAKER CHANGE: Rallied for fourth and race over course will

only help matters going forward, as will second start since August-layoff; primed.
