HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


DEL MAR

DEVOTED TO YOU: Finished a distant third in return from a long layoff. Prepped

 and ready to win either here or at Fairplex.

EASY MILLION: Drew an outside post and then got hung out four wide on

the first turn. Can improve with a better post off the claim by Hess.

ELEMENT K.: Bobbled badly in an awkward break and lost her best chance at

the start. Worth one more try.

ELUSIVE DIVA: Was fractious in the gate prior to the start of her loss in return

 from a four-month layoff. Stick with her.

GO COYOTE GO: Tried to make a big middle move but lost too much ground

when four wide on the turn. Can win off the claim by Carava.

GOLD CREEK DANCER: Broke slowly and had to hustle up toward the pace

 in order to press a loose-on-the-lead wire-to-wire winner. Try again.

JANZIG MOON: Broke too slowly and didn’t have enough speed in career debut

 to be competitive in a short sprint. Try again in stretchout and possible switch to turf.

LAST CONQUEST: Rushed up inside into a speed duel and got KO’d after

 contesting a :21.4 and :44.3 pace. Dangerous speed with a more alert start.

MIGHTY BEAU: Foreign invader reared up at the start and lost all chance at

 the break in a short turf sprint. Worth another shot.

MISS LEMON DROP: Battled for the lead and outlasted her challengers to

 hold on for fourth, beaten only a length. Front end turf threat.

R. H PERFECT STORM: Three-way battle for the lead in a :22 first quarter

mile took its toll on her. Can make amends as a potential overlay.

SEATTLE BUDDY: Needed a race off an eight-month layoff. Should be

tougher in second race back.

SPEED TRAP: Got caught in a three-way battle for the lead in a race that set

up for a pair of deep closers. Can shake loose here or at Fairplex.

SUNNY DISPOSITION: Was forced out wide into the first turn and lost too

 much ground early when seeking second win in a row. Can rebound.

TRULY A JUDGE: Got hooked by two different challenges up front and never

 got a breather on the pace before tiring out of the money. Too early to give up on him.

 

4STARSPECIAL: WITHIN TIME: Got bumped, shut-off, and interfered with at

the start of her well-bet career debut. Just needs a chance to run, and could be an

 overlay based on first out fiasco.

LONGSHOT: FIVE NICKELS: Blew the break and had to rush up when trying

 to show early speed from an outside post on the turf. Don’t overlook despite

the last-place finish.

 

CALDER

B L’S LUCKY APPEAL: Made it two good starts in a row after opening her

 account with two dismal eighth-place finishes. Won’t get 29-1 again, but is

worth playing off her runner-up effort at $20k.

CARVI BLAZE: Showed added speed in her second start when stretched out

 in distance. Clearly headed the right way off the third-place finish.

HARDTOBEATBOB: Has run some interesting races at long odds, including a

 recent sixth at 91-1. Keep a very close eye on this maiden.

PIRATING: Finished 12th, beaten 18 lengths in his debut, but that didn’t

stop owner Sandy Goldfarb and trainer Henry Collazo from claiming him for

 $40k in his second career start, which he finished second. Interesting to see

what they do next with him.

SING DORTHY D: Tampa invader held her own in local bow, finishing fourth.

 Has every right to move forward.

SUCCESSFUL: Daughter of Successful Appeal has flashed speed and tired in each

 of her two starts, but stayed on a little bit better second time around. Can speed

pop ‘em at a price.

SUCHATOUCH: Speedster was in a bit too deep in the Regal Gal S. last time

out. Can take a group of $25k optional claimers gate-to-wire.

UNCIVIL: It wasn’t too long ago that this guy was facing graded stakes company.

 Most recently was second in a $25k optional tagger; not asking much from this one

these days.

VERY BECOMING: Well-bred daughter of Belong to Me out of a Seeking the Gold

mare should move forward off her sixth-place debut. More distance please.

 

4STARSPECIAL: PERFECT NOTE: Came running for third after getting steadied

 at the start in her career debut Aug. 22. Sharp outfit adds to her appeal.

LONGSHOT: I IMAGINE: Clipped heels on the first turn two starts back and was

 pinched back at the start in her most recent effort. Very intriguing at a big price.
