HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


MONMOUTH PARK

BIG OUT: Rated off the pace last out, made a move to the lead in the

stretch but tired to finish fourth; follow with similar from a better post.

I’M ONLY LAUGHING: Was never far back early on while chasing a fast pace

and closed good ground in the stretch to get up for the drive.

MORNING’S IMAGE: Trailed the field early on last out before closing good

ground to finish third at 53-1; is a must use in exotics next out.

STORMIN OEDY: Veteran has been showing much more speed last out and dug

in gamely for the win. Follow this backclassy veteran.

SUMMER STING: Was humbled a bit when trying winners for the first time last

 out and chased a quick pace before tiring to finish fourth. Should be ready to

 roll with that race under her belt.

TORRE AND ZIM: Has some backclass to call on and ran well to finish second last

 out versus $16k claimers. His tactical speed puts him right in the mix early.

UNBRIDLED HARMONY: Battled on the lead early on but did not go on with it

and finished sixth. Hails from the Pletcher barn so don’t dismiss next out at a good price.

UNREAL GENERAL: Almost took it all the way next out at 22-1 when he finished

 third on the turf. Follow right back with $40k claimers.

WELCOME HOME: Made a quick move to the lead last out past the quarter mile

and never looked back scoring by two lengths. Well bred filly should move forward

for the Goldberg barn.

 

4STARSPECIAL: WHO’S THE COWBOY: Took a lot of pressure last out on the

 lead and battled the whole way into late stretch but had to settle for the place

 spot; scores with Jersey breds allowance foes next out.

LONGSHOT: LA LUZ: Made the lead from the far outside post position last out,

laid down slow fractions and dug in well in the drive to finish a very close fourth.

That was an improved effort and should be respected right back.

 

 

DELAWARE

BON MARIE: Returned from a layoff of nearly 1 ½ years and went well for

 third after setting a quick pace while rank; lightly raced 4YO to follow.

GREEN RICHES: Have long loved this guy’s early lick, and although he failed

as the odds-on favorite when second in his latest he should be primed for third start

 of form cycle.

KALOOKAN LADY: Shook off pace pressure to draw clear for latest score

over NW2L types on sprint scene; takes another in current form.

LUKE HILL: Managed second behind clear winner from off the pace in latest, and

 was claimed by winning Lake barn; with lower-end sprinters.

NEON MAGIC: Gave even chase basically throughout latest fourth when trying to

 make a closing impact behind easy pace in five-horse group; another chance.

SOCIETY SAM: Failed to threaten on sprint scene in latest, but figures sharper

 for the experience going forward; can surprise versus weaker group.

TACTICAL GOLD: Chased the pace and faded to fourth in latest, but has been

 holding sharp form recently; winning Anthony Dutrow barn an added plus.

TRAPPED AGAIN: Romped impressively when returned from break two starts

 back and may have felt the effects when an even third in latest; talented sort bounces

back.

 

4STARSPECIAL: COME CLOSE: Returned from lengthy break with a close-up third in

 tune-up sprint; major player once back on turf for dangerous Sheppard barn.

LONGSHOT: CASEY’S GOLD FEVER: Chased throughout latest and stayed on

for third – benefits from route conditioning in second start back from break; intrigued

 by turf idea given pedigree.
