This is an active list of horses that are ready to fire big efforts in their next starts.
Citizen Matzo – 9-21-19 – Breaking from a wide post, was forced to a front running style where he pressed the early leader through quick early splits before weakening in the stretch. Seemed to be moving forward headed into this start, showing a stronger late kick which is much more his game. Will be running hard through the late stages next time out.
Daria’s Angel 10-5-19 – Coming into this race was well respected although coming in off a layoff. Had a nice set of works but didn’t fire any sharp moves which reflected in his effort because he lagged early, made a late move to capture the show spot. Seemed to need this race under his belt where he should fire a bigger effort next time out!
Gracetown 10-13-19 – Came in off a layoff and a failed grass effort in his last start to fire a big effort finishing 2nd. Well back early she made a sharp move into contention but not getting to a loose on the lead winner. She figures to show more improvement next time out with this race under her belt.
Misericordia 9-16-19 – Was thrown into a Grade 2 stake last time out and went off at odds of 63-1 however was in the thick of the race throughout, outrunning his odds and lost the race by just 2 lengths capturing the show spot. I feel he will be dropped down to a more fitting spot next time out and deserves a long look given her consistency and improved effort last time out.
Talent Scout – 9-21-19 Dropped back down to the level of his claim and gave a deceivingly good effort as he was banged coming out of the gate, chased 5-wide trying to get into contention and chased 6-wide into the stretch. His prior race seemed to have him ready for a big effort so I would look for Scout to bounce back in a big way next time out. 10-14-19- Finished 3rd after being boxed in into the stretch and made a nice late move once free. Keep him on your list for his next start.
