HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


BELMONT

AURELIA: Is coming around and most recent third place finish points her out

 for next time; follow turf or dirt.

CROWD’S DELIGHT: Ran very well again in second try on the turf after breaking

 his maiden on that surface. Should move through his conditions quickly.

DEFLATION: Was overlayed last out at 41-1 but ran on well to check in third.

 Don’t dismiss with NW1X allowance foes on the turf right back.

DYNAMIC CONTOUR: Ran evenly in his career and turf debut but is bred to

 like the grass. Look for further improvement from sometimes crafty barn.

ELEMENTS: Closed some good ground to finish third last out behind a very

solid prospect and should move forward off that effort.

FINAL VALENTINE: Showed much improved speed and stamina when moved

into the Asmussen barn and can get there with further improvement.

GIN SOCIETE: Could do no better than a distant fourth last out against NW1X

statebred allowance foes. Will benefit from a switch to the turf.

LIFE SAVIOR: Stalked the pace after showing some speed early on, took over

 and never looked back scoring by more than five lengths, can only get better

 for the Dutrow Jr. barn.

MOOREBELLA: Took a needed drop last out into claimers but never really made

 a winning bid and tired to finish sixth while not being persevered with in the

 drive, tab at a better price next out.

NURSE CULKIN: Was stopped for a bit in the stretch before closing late to

 get up for the place spot. Handles statebred NW2X allowance company next out.

SILVER WHISTLE: Had a terrible trip last out, checking down the backside

and then having to circle the field five wide and still got up for the win. Follow

 back with winners for the Mott barn.

UNBRIDLED SPRING: Showed more speed in his second start on the stretchout

and went on for an easy score. Can only get better for Zito barn.

UPPER SCHOOL: Was way back last out behind moderate fractions made a big

 move on the turn but was very wide and didn’t make any impact in the stretch.

 Give her another shot at a big price.

VANITY AFFAIR: Didn’t get the best of trips last out when checking in third after

 steadying a few different times during the race. Was claimed by top barn and must

 be respected right back.

 

4STARSPECIAL: ZAMGO: Ran very well to finish second to a runaway winner in a

 very quick time; will be tough next out versus maidens.

LONGSHOT: EURO CODE: Was off to a slow start and then was outrun through

 a very quick half in 44:4, he finished up fourth but this horse is in good form and

 can pop at a price.

 

LONE STAR

DWIGHT POLITE: Tracked the pace from wide position and settled for fourth

 as the beaten favorite in latest; versatile sort bounces back to best stuff.

FATHER JAMES: Never threatened in latest when asked to cut back in

 distance; sharper for experience and a threat to stretch back out following claim by

 trainer Duhon.

HOLLOWFILL: Has been on the board in seven of the first 10 starts to begin his

 career, and has been in sharp form of late; snaps current string of third-place finishes

with a win.

LOST BRIDE: Brings plenty of class, early speed, and winning knack (eight-for-19

 lifetime); what can be the problem?

SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Was blocked along the inside when it counted and

 had to settle for fifth most recently; only improves off of initial experience versus winners.

SILVER THUNDER: Moved to turf for the first time in his latest, and responded

well to finish third in blanket finish; next time.

STEADY STREAK: Ran into trouble in latest with wide trip and never really got

 on track settling for fifth; can do better for winning Asmussen barn.

WILD LATE NITE FUN: Added Lasix for second lifetime start and set the pace en

 route to easy score; follow juvenile filly right back versus winners.

 

4STARSPECIAL: FORMAL RUSH: Overcame some traffic trouble to rally and pick

up fourth in latest, and has really seemed to step up her game since move to turf; solid.

LONGSHOT: OU WEE: Got back to the main track to meet winners for the first

 time in her latest, and was caught wide when fifth in crowded group; lightly raced 5YO with potential.
