HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


CALDER

AMERICAN COMEDY: Continues to hold his own since shipping in from

 the Big Apple. Cut him some slack for the second-place finish at even-money,

chasing a loose-on-the-lead winner home July 4.

COZZY CATE: Broke her maiden in her seventh attempt, then followed with

 a third-place finish July 3. Headed in the right direction.

JESSICA BUSH: Tired to finish fourth after hitting the gate at the start in

her debut July 3. Give a very long look in her second attempt.

JUST CALL ME CHIEF: Was allowed to cut out the early fractions in his latest

start and stayed on well for second. Can earn his diploma shortly under similar

 circumstances.

NOAH A.: It looks like this speedster has found a home on the weeds, posting

 a win and two seconds from three chances. Go for it.

RAPID FLOW: Closed well to finish third at 21-1 last time out. See what kind

 of odds you can get off that performance.

SANDY BAY: Wasn’t given much of a chance in her debut, but outran her

 46-1 odds to finish a respectable third. Gets another shot.

SUPERVISOR: Have to like his fifth-place finish at boxcar odds in the

Mecke H. Back classy runner is rounding into form.

UNCLE BILL: Very dismal in his last three efforts, but a switch to grass may

 wake him up. Won’t be facing much competition at the basement.

WAIT IN LINE: Juvenile has encountered trouble at the start in each of his

calls to post. A clean break will help this colt out a great deal.

 

4STARSPECIAL: PLANTER: Keeps on turning in solid performances since the

 maiden win in May. Looking very cozy at the $10k level.

LONGSHOT: GAZELDA: Didn’t run all that bad for a 42-1 shot in her debut,

finishing fifth after a tardy beginning. Tab at a price.

 

 

LOUISIANA DOWNS

AUTOPSCOT: Rallied somewhat to pick up third in latest, holding recent consistent

 form; remains overdue for top prize – not an unattainable goal.

CAT NAVIGATOR: Settled for second behind blowout winner in most

 recent start, and can continue to move forward in form for winning Norman barn.

COMMANDER BUCK: Rated, rallied to challenge, and settled for second as beaten

 favorite in latest when claimed by Howard barn; next time.

COOLEST: Shook free early when stretched out to turf route for the first time and

stayed on well to finish a close fourth; conditioning gained helps regardless of

 return spot.

MILITARY MAJOR: Can build upon promising career debut, in which he rallied

 for third in five-furlong turf race; son of Rahy from Woodman mare bred to run all day.

MYSTIC RUNNER: Switched to turf for latest, and once again showed how

versatile he can be rating from off the pace and finishing up for third; tough customer.

OPINE: Fought it out on pace throughout latest, and after taking first turn

wide, only to finish beaten a neck in second; next time.

QUE PASO: Returned from break with third-place finish in which he battled on

 the pace and had a right to tire; juvenile son of Cherokee Run is one to follow.

SEEMELOADANDFIRE: Brings plenty of early speed and ability to turf routes,

 and although he’s more often underneath he remains worth inclusion in gimmicks.

SILENT TYPE: Held sharp recent form when a narrowly beaten third from off

the pace in latest; consistent sort always on our tickets.

 

4STARSPECIAL: JUNK GYPSIE: Fought it out in game fashion on the front end

 throughout latest, when a winner by a head; lightly raced 4YO filly is sharp

 now and can take another.

LONGSHOT: NIFTY ONE: Chased the pace and tired in latest, but when asked

 to stretch his speed 11 furlongs on the turf; can find a better spot to score.
