BUSY PROSPECT: Blasted clear early but faded in short group at Laurel

most recently; his only win, a dominant one at that, has come over this course.

D’AROAK: Rallied for second behind blowout winner in latest, and was

claimed by winning Dale Capuano barn; next time.

FRED BOB: Never got involved in latest, but seems to do best running when

 on or near the pace; eligible to step up when in with NW2L types.

GRAY SUITOR: Has trained well and showed improvement when fourth in second

career start; trainer Graham Motion brings them along the right way and often

points for turf.

HEAVENLY BOUND: Chased and faded when tried in ambitious stakes spot

 most recently; have long liked this filly, and wouldn’t mind seeing another try at turf.

JOHNNY OLA: Rallied from just off the pace to score in latest, when making his

 first start off the claim by trainer Lezell; takes another.

LOVE RUSH: Chased early, stopped, and was eased in latest when tried at

one-mile distance beyond her best trip; rebounds at shorter trip.

ROCKIN’ BOBBY: Lived up to odds-on billing with dominant win on the pace

in latest; can come from off the pace, too, and figures to hold sharp current form.

SILVER BROKER: Was hung five-wide at one mile and came up empty when

 it counted most recently; prior win was a nice one, and he needs only some better

 racing luck now.

UNGOVERNED: Chased the pace and faded as the beaten favorite in his latest, but

 is better than effort suggests; follow off claim by trainer MacKinnon.


4STARSPECIAL: DOUBLE NO: Set a pressured pace along the inside and battled

gamely to the finish when second in latest; takes similar claiming group next time.

LONGSHOT: HE DEVIL: Owns far more second-place finishes than wins, but

remains interesting as a late mover who picks up checks; needs pace and

racing luck for score.




BADGETT AT NIGHT: Like that she was freshened up in March after going

 winless in her first 14 chances. Going to break through one of these days.

COOPERSTOWN HERO: May have bounced last time after finishing a

good fourth off the layoff Apr. 3. Gets another chance to prove himself.

FARGO CALLING: Has run rather even in both of her starts to this point.

 A pair of blinkers couldn’t hurt the cause.

HOUSE OF GEMS: Frequently hits the board, but doesn’t win all that

often [one-for-15 lifetime]. Toss in the exotics.

MAD RIVER MAGIC: Was on the shelf since September 2002, but ran a

respectable third in her first start off the bench. Very interesting.

NO SAINT: Handled the stretch out to one mile with a second-place finish

Mar. 24 and a third Apr. 18. Like what we’ve been seeing from him.

PLEAS DEAL: Always shows good speed and is dangerous on turf and

dirt. Can’t find any knocks on her; make the play.

SHE MADE IT HAPPEN: Certainly made it happen last out, breaking her

maiden by 10 lengths. Will be competitive versus bottom taggers.

STREET CARNIVAL: Graduated versus $8,000 maiden claimers, then ran

 a dismal ninth against starter allowance foes. Give a look at a price if pitted

at the bottom level.

SWISS SECRET: Was DQ’d from third in her second career start at 54-1. Still

heading in the right direction, so stay close.

THE CASTLE: Just missed by a head, finishing second in her second start off

the layoff. Shows ‘em who’s king of the castle at $5k.


4STARSPECIAL: BIRCH BAY: Rode the ladder to two consecutive victories and

 held his own finishing third at $12.5k after dueling for the lead Apr. 18.

Looking sharp.

LONGSHOT: IN OTHER WORDS: Showed late interest passing some horses

 in deep stretch in her first two starts at long odds. A major upset in the making.
