HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
CONFIDENT HEART: Moved up to the leaders to race in second from the
inside post and stayed that way into the stretch before tiring late to finish
fourth; should be right there with NW2L claimers.
DEPUTY’S REWARD: Ran to his backing last out scoring as the favorite in
a quickly run race and is taken to repeat off that effort.
FUN MEETING YOU: Ran on well for second last out while sprinting, but this
backclassy veteran can handle all distances, respect.
JOHNNY BOY: Made a middle move to the leaders at the half mile but could
not sustain that run and tired to finish fifth. Give this one another shot with
NW4L claimers at a price.
JOHNNY OLA: Chased from third last out and stayed that way to the wire as the
top three raced 1-2-3 around the racetrack. The winner of the race has
plenty of speed and backclass, stay close.
SEAVER: Was pinched back at the start of the race, then advanced on the outside
while racing four wide on the turn only to check in fourth. A better break is the key.
4STARSPECIAL: ITSAWONDERFULIFE: Scored easily as the 2-5 choice last
out with restricted allowance foes but this one can handle turf or dirt and
will be very tough with better.
LONGSHOT: TICKLE ME RED: Was off to a slow start and trailed the field past
the half mile mark before closing some ground to finish fifth. Veteran may still
have something left and should be given another try with $4k claimers.
ARTIC TIGER: Was well placed early on racing in third but could not
get to the top two finishers and settled for the show spot at 28-1. Follow
right back with maidens.
BUC FAN: Was close-up early on while saving ground and then closed
ground in the stretch to finish well clear for the place spot; sharp now.
CAN YOU SEE ME NOW: Showed good speed last out while trying the
turf in a small stakes race and tired to finish last of eight. Look for a
switch back to the dirt to show her best.
COUNTRY MUSIC: Veteran was quickly clear to the lead last out and
held on well for a clear second with $12.5k claimers, leads them gate
to wire next out.
CROSSING POINT: Took plenty of pressure early on while battling for
the lead last out but tired in the drive to settle for the show spot, must
respect on a clear lead.
IRENE’S SONG: Rated towards the middle of the pack last out before
making a strong middle move to the lead only to fade to fourth
in the drive. Follow with NW2L allowance foes.
KING BLING: Broke running from the outside post, cleared off
and hung in well for third; can wire statebred maidens next out.
STORM HEN: Made up some ground in the stretch to finish third
behind the two favorites in a tough statebred allowance race; is a
must use in exotics.
SUMMER STING: Was solid off the layoff since November scoring
easily by more than five lengths going wire to wire and should
move through his statebred conditions quickly.
4STARSPECIAL: KARAKORUM TUXEDO: Was on top of his game when he
left New York but has not been able to put it all together show far
this meeting, follow back at a better price.
LONGSHOT: A TOAST TO LIFE: Broke out at the start after breaking from
the rail post and then rushed up and was involved in the pace, holding
on well for the show spot; a better break is the key.
