HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF WATCH


CALDER

AFLEET NICE: Plenty of excuses for his recent dismal effort in the slop, including

a stumbling start and a March layoff. Seriously consider.

CHRISTIE’S QUEEN: She’s gotten better with every trip to post. Third-place

 finishes Aug. 19 and Sept. 25 are signs of good things to come.

ETERNAL LOOK: Seven-year-old really proved he’s in top form by finishing

second in the Whippleton S. at odds of 28-1. Keeps on rolling.

MIRACLE MOON: Is yet to see a fast track in two career starts, but has moved

forward with experience. All systems are a go for next time.

PARISIAN COWBOY: Off the board only once in 12 career starts. Speedster makes

it two straight after a sharp wire-to-wire score Sept. 25.

SAGAMORE: Has gotten pressed throughout in his last two and was able to stay on

 for runner-up honors. Graduation day has never been closer.

SIR ALBERT EARL: Finished a distant second when stretched out to 1 1/16 miles

Sept. 26. Merits respect going long or short.

YESJAZ: Outran 18-1 odds in her debut to finish third, beaten 8 ½ lengths. Daughter

 of Concerto should appreciate more distance.

 

4STARSPECIAL: FRANK THE TANK (AUS): Freshened up in July off a dismal 10th,

 he has come back in fine fashion, posting two wins and a third from three starts.

Frank the Tank is back!

LONGSHOT: THIRTEEN TREASURES: Liked her going into her latest off a pair of

fifth-place finishes, but lunged at the start and tossed the rider. Sitting on a big effort.

 

LAUREL

ACROSS THE SKY: Got caught up in pace and stopped in latest, but prior win

suggests gelding is clearly capable of better; don’t count out for winning Cox barn.

BANKER’S HOLIDAY: Showed needed and improved early and overall interest

when third, beaten only a length, in his latest; finally rounding back to form.

C.L. RIB: Bobbled at the break, dropped well behind early, and finished with good

 energy to finish second in his latest; proven veteran sitting on another win.

CALLINGFORTHUNDER: Rallied for third in useful career debut, and should only

 benefit from conditioning (one mile) and experience (between foes) gained; follow.

GREEN GOBLIN: Raced up close early, dropped back some, then stayed on fairly

well for fifth in crowded debut; note, juvenile colt was asked to stay a mile in

debut, and should improve.

KID RIGO: Made it two straight front-running victories in latest, and even made

jump up in class along the way; 7YO gelding with touch of class keeps on rolling.

RUN TO VICTORY: Never got on track from wide spot when most recently making

 his first start since late-July; likely leg stretcher has him set for late season turf tally.

TIDY SUM: Raced wide and passed tired foes, but fourth-place finish in her first

 start versus winners is likely a sign of better things to come.

WALLOP: Showed some improvement in latest when circling field on way to

 third-place finish; primed for best stuff in third start of current form cycle.

WOODEN STONE: Held sharp recent form when a three-quarter length winner of his

 latest start, and was claimed by legendary Leatherbury barn; right back.

 

4STARSPECIAL: I’M INDY ARMY NOW: Showed improvement when moved to turf

as a fresh face for latest, but couldn’t overcome wide spot en route to fourth-place

finish; next time.

LONGSHOT: TRIPLE PUNCH: Now has a pair of races worth of experience versus

 winners and can move forward in form in a hurry; respect winning Jenkins barn.
