From our personal stash come several Horses to Watch in action today:
In today’s 5th race at Laurel, a maiden allowances for 2-year-olds going a mile, one of the horses with experience is Saar’s Image (12-1). He’s jumping up in class and going turf to dirt for a barn that’s better 2nd time out and profitable in this turf scenario. The note:
“Very rank starting gate, finished strongly in deep stretch, galloped out very well, look for big improvement next out…”
Lucky Curlin (7-2), Churchill Downs Race 7: At SPA “Appears to want distance, showed speed from the gate, took back noticeably, re-rallied, classic Z pattern, finishing very well too late.” [start two]
His 47 2/5 breeze on NOV 3 5th fastest of 162 peers to work that week.
Blockbuster (8-1), Race 7, Gulfstream Park West “Showed immense potential on 9/13 at Kentucky Downs, much the best horse!”
We follow our horses with win bets the next time the next three times they race or until they win within that period. If either of those parameters are met, they are removed from the list.
