Horses to Watch

Nick Borg’s Horses To Watch 2017

Birdatthewire Was in very deep on 8/2 and made a premature move to contention but flattened out turning for home. Feel she will give a better effort next time out and hopefully against a little bit softer field.

Bon Heir Made her second start back from a layoff on 82 and was able to rally into contention but weakened late. Next time out she should give a bigger effort with this race under her belt.

Marchant made first start in about 68 days on 5/11 and seemed to need the race as he finished 4th against a good group. He figures to be better next time out and should be finishing well once again. Update: Raced on 6/8 and just didn’t show any fire after breaking sideways and hitting the gate.  Give one more chance and at double digit odds.

Set to Dance turned in a solid effort off the layoff on 7/13 and seemed to need the race coming in off the layoff. Figures to run big next time out.

Sky Gesture was equipped with blinks for the first time on 7/13 and figured to make the early lead given he also had the rail position in the gate but he broke through the gate prior to the start and was unruly. He was put back in the gate and broke very quickly to get the early lead and showed good speed into the stretch before weakening. Feel he will turn in a much better effort next time out especially if he loads the gate a little calmer.

Explanation of How This List Works

This is a free active list of horses that were tabbed to give big efforts last time out and for some reason they just didn’t fire as big as expected. As we all know,  the reason or reasons for such could be one of dozens.

The horses making this list are coming out of races where they figured to give big efforts, improve their performance from their prior starts and are entering a sharper state of conditioning within their form cycles.

Horses that have been working well, working better than their recent form would indicate also makes this list.

The race that a listed Watch horse is running back into is not being handicapped by our staff when the horse is entered so results are going to vary. However this listed Watch horse is well meant and they usually go off at a solid price on the board. Think of what that means for Exacta’s & Trifecta’s.

Our site will be updated continuously with new additions to the list as well as deletions from the list. Watch horses and updates will be listed continuously with results.

When a Watch horse is racing I will notify everyone by posting the horse’s entry info on Twitter. Therefore the best way to monitor when a Watch horse is racing is to follow me on Twitter.

The best way to take advantage of this free Horse’s to Watch List:

1-Stay in contact with NickBorg.com to note which horses are on the list and for what reasons they made the list. You might have even selected some of these horses in their prior starts and already have some insight on them.

2- Follow me @NickBorg63 on Twitter for information as to when a Watch horse is being entered to race along with the date, the track, the race number, the distance and the surface.

 3- After you receive the horse entry information sent by Nick through Twitter then I suggest you handicap that race as you normally would and hopefully in the end you will still consider the Watch horse as a top contender for that race. However as you will learn, blindly playing these Watch list horses without handicapping their races will usually produce a winning ROI.
