“Off the Charts” Trip Notes and Horses to Watch

At the time of this entry the Breeders’ Cup countdown is 3 days, 3 hours, and 55 minutes away. The fever is starting to catch as the rest of the week I’ll be following the notes team work, and watching workouts and replays. This is my preparation, and I’m sure you have your own. But one is for sure, it’s only a matter of days until the best racing of the year will converge on Santa Anita. In the meantime, here are some runners you’ll want to keep your eyes and bankroll focused. They have an excuse, a bad break, or it just wasn’t their day. Either way, just follow them back and you may have a bumper payday.

Horses to Watch

Belmont Park

10/19/16

Race #3 – #7 – Bull – 7f turf

Had to check off heels at the 1/8th pole twice and was trying to close stoutly with Manny Franco in the irons. New York-bred son of Bluegrass Cat was put up for second after a little bumping and shutting off down the lane. With a little racing luck, he’ll be tough to handle next out.

Gulfstream Park West

10/28/16

Race #6- #1 – Our War Eagle – 5f turf

Edgard Zayas had the call for Eddie Plesa and this two-year-old by Unbridled’s Song came flying late in the lane. He missed by a nose in this maiden affair and I think we’ll be hearing from him down the road.

Keeneland

10/19/16

Race #4 – #4 – Pour Girl – 1 1/16 turf

This 50-1 shot with Declan Cannon in the irons was beaten a head for the whole enchilada. Cannon is 37% ITM on the green and made a huge move up the rail after shipping in from Indy Grand. She may reward her backers at a handsome price next out. By the way, this guy loves to ride on the greensward.

10/20/16

Race #9 – #5 – Scarf it Down – 6 1/2f dirt

Florent Geroux in the driver’s seat and he spotted the field about 8-10 lengths coming out of the gate. He made an exhilarating move around the far turn rushing up to be just two off the leaders. he seemed to fade a bit down the lane, and finishing 4th on a sloppy sealed track may have him looking to get right back in the game.

10/22/16

Race #2 -#4 – Wise Old Owl – 1 1/16 dirt

First time starter who was sent off the luke warm favorite and had the services of Julien Leparoux. He was starting to make up ground under the leading rider for the Mike Maker barn, and you can rest assured he’ll gain needed experience where the barn does well with second timers to the races.

Race #4 – #3 – Bird Street – 6f dirt

Shaun Bridgmohan in the saddle and his filly was bottled up and forced to steady mid-way around the final turn. She was shifting out to make up good ground but just ran out of time.
