HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


PHILADELPHIA

AIBREAN: Had a bad trip when last again on 7/10. Worth one more try if

the price is right.

ALEUTIAN FROST: Sent for the lead and held on well for second behind

a ship-in 8-5 winner from Belmont. It’s his turn next time.

CLEVER TO ME: Broke very slowly and never got into the thick of the race

 on 7/12. Worth another shot.

DIRECT CALL: Got hooked in a two-length-gap duel for the lead and held

on for third in return from a brief freshening. Can top non-winners of two.

FLY BIG BIRD FLY: Took up in traffic on the turn and got shuffled back to

last before coming with a solid rally for second at 37-1 behind a runaway

 winner. Ready to graduate.

FOURHANDTWENTYSIX: Broke slowly but didn’t run poorly after being sent

off at 15-1 in career debut. Keep an eye on her.

MADISON’S WISH: Broke very slowly and lost all chance at the start in a

 5 1/2-furlong race. Just needs a clean start.

MEMA’S MONEY: Broke slowly in last on 7/9, but got claimed out of that race

 and could improve for new barn with a better beginning.

NELLIE L: Battled for the lead and never got a breather up front before settling

 for third. Fits well vs. bottom cheapies.

OUR LITTLE LUCY: Needed a race following an eight-month layoff. Lost by

nine lengths but was only 1 1/2 lengths out of second and is prepped and ready now.

 

4STARSPECIAL: ABOVE AVERAGE: Broke sluggishly and rushed up into

 a contested pace before setting for fourth in a below average effort. Try again

off claim by Pino.

LONGSHOT: HANGING OUT: Hesitated at the start and then rushed up into

 contention to lose his best chance on 7/12. Finished sixth, but lost by only a

 length and a half in a big effort. Live overlay.

 

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA FAIRS

A FINE RED LINE: Was kept too far in the back to make an impact in her first

attempt versus winners. Can make some noise at a price with more of an

aggressive ride.

BABY BEAR’S SOUP: Improved drastically in his second start off the layoff

 with a solid runner-up effort July 15. Not facing much at the current level.

EVENING FORECAST: Appreciated the added distance in her second career

start, finishing third at 21-1. Figures versus similar.

GOOSE AT FIFTY: Nearly stole one at 47-1 odds with a heady ride being

sent to the lead. Tempting to try right back.

I’LL SURVIVE: Last two starts at 13-1 and 25-1 are pretty good. Can build

off fifth and fourth-place finishes; be there.

JANS PARLAY: Began her career versus much better in Southern California at

Santa Anita and has improved with each start since shipping north. Upset bound.

KAISER F J: Three-year-old gelding has opened his account with two runner-up

efforts, including a start at Solano July 13. Graduation day nears.

PATY RAY: Is starting to pick things up a little bit start by start. Have some

patience with this filly, because a big payday could be in the cards.

RUNS ALL KNIGHT: Showed some added life on the stretchout, flashing

speed for six furlongs before fading to fourth at 22-1. Food for thought.

SLEW FLY: Some of her starts are better than they appear to be on paper.

 Hated the added distance in latest; can pop on a cutback.

WESTHAVEN: Turf Paradise invader returned from the March layoff ready to run

 with a third-place finish. Follow off the claim for new barn.

WORD POWER: Has improved with distance and experience and looked good

 earning her diploma in recent outing. Tab at the next level.

 

4STARSPECIAL: BADGETT’S MANGO: Six-year-old mare looks like a

different animal this season in two starts. Might even get some value here.

LONGSHOT: SHOW ME TAZZ: Old boy is having a hard time keeping up in

those 4 ½-furlong sprints since returning from the shelf. Give some consideration

 if they put him in going six.
