HORSES TO WATCH
By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB
FANTINO: Was away from the gate quickly, set the pace through some
splits but tired late in the drive to finish fifth, a little more than two lengths
off the lead. Is a threat to take it all the way next out.
ILLUSIVE GUY: Was racing in midpack early on, then made a solid
middle move to get into second but flattened out late to finish fourth. Fits
with NW3L claimers on the turf.
KINDERSCOUT: Raced forwardly from the start, got clear on the turn but
gave way late to finish third. Needs a better pace scenario next out to graduate.
MAJOR GOLD: Stalked the pace from the two path, was blocked in early
stretch but didn’t have enough left and finished fourth at 30-1; follow with
maidens on the turf.
MIMI’S PRIDE: Never got a breather on the lead battling from the start and
tiring as they entered the stretch. Follow right back with straight three year
ROWAN EXPRESS: Was quickly clear to the lead, held a clear advantage into
the stretch but could not hold on late and finished third. Six furlongs is a better
fit for this speedster.
4STARSPECIAL: JEANNE’S HONOR: Closed well to finish second last out
on the turf at 14-1, finishing behind the favorite. Like her chances under
LONGSHOT: FIRST QUARTER: Stalked a very quick pace while racing three
wide, was in contention as they approached the stretch before tiring to finish
third. Follow right back in turf sprint at a price.
BOGANGLES: Moved up to the allowance level last time and found himself over
his head so a drop back into claimers can do the trick.
ELEGANT FAME: May have been used up chasing the pace from the start
and began to tire in the drive to finish seventh. The price will be right with
ISLAND SAGA: Was away quickly from the start of the race last out, battled
on the lead through some solid splits but tired a bit late to finish fifth.
Fits nicely with $20k claimers.
JUNIOR COLLEGE: Raced towards the back of the pack early on last out but
did come with a very fast late run to finish second. Fits with maiden special
KIAWAH: Ran on well for fourth last out with $30k claimers for the
Romans barn and should continue to move forward off that effort.
LINEOFBULL: Chased the quick pace from the start and stayed on well
for second behind the favorite and must be respected with NW1X allowance
foes, stay close.
PURE SYMMETRY: Has shown speed in all her starts so far and held on
for fourth last out in her best performance of her career. Should wire two
year olds at Ellis Park.
SOCIAL PROBATION: Trailed the field in 10th from the start behind
reasonable splits and closed strongly to finish second. Is sharp now so follow
back with similar.
STORM A BREWING: Made a big move from seventh into third but could
not get to the top two and tired late for fourth; solid connections.
WATER GAP: Always puts in an honest effort but he caught a very tough
money allowance field last out and would need some class relief to show his best.
4STARSPECIAL: DOC ROBBINS: Is in top form right now and ran a very big
second when moved up into allowance company and should continue his sharp form.
LONGSHOT: MAGO: Showed good speed last out when stretched out in
distance and was still there as they approached the top of the stretch but
tired in the drive to finish sixth. A drop into maiden claimers should do the trick.
