Horse to Watch List

(04/13/19)  ALWAYS FORGIVEN (4th) slow into stride in his debut, was soundly beaten  but did show some late run interest while edging a rival late for the  show. Worth a look next time race with race under his belt.

(04/28/19) GREY LADY  (4th) solid works leading up to her debut and she should improve next time out.

(05/04/19)  HARD NOT TO LOVE (2nd) away slowly, got rank and pulled way to leaders,  tried to open up and weakened through stretch in a much  better-than-looked effort. Solid play back.

(05/04/19)  TAGLINE (#5) away a step slowly in debut, awkward early on, found her  best stride around half-mile marker, raced inside only to tire from her  early effort. Daughter of Bellamy Road deserves to be followed down the  road.

(05/11/19)  OUR ROMANCE (1st) better-than-looked effort as this filly was caught in  tight, checked and steadied but showed some spunk and courrage when she  re-rallied late. Follow her back.

(05/18/19)  INTERESTING TIMES (4th) solid win in maiden debut and ran sharp right  back vs. winners. Runner-up today but never stopped trying in a nice  try. Follow up this gal.

(05/18/19)  DON'T BLAME JUDY (7th) bucked speed bias with a nice off-the-pace win.  This filly is razor sharp now and deserves to be followed.

(06/14/19) ROGER THAT (5th) made US debut and looked out of sorts in the paddock. Maybe just needed a acclimation race and with that under his belt we'll give him another shot next time.

(06/16/19) SCORING (2nd) very green and studish in paddock and post parade. Able to turn in a gutty win via DQ by the stews but we saw enough from him here to follow him right back.

(06/16/19) PALACE PRINCE (2nd) $200,000 OBS public auction purchase is very well built and ran like he wants more distance. Mike Smith gave him the perfect "education" here and we'll look for this son of Palace Malice next time out.

(06/16/19) KINGLY (8th) awful effort here while rank, pulling and unruly while tossing his head all around early. Simply draw a line through this race.
