AGOS Horses to Watch – 6/21/16

Churchill Downs

Dixie Jewel (6/11/16 – Race #1 – #1 – 1 1/16 dirt) – jockey Robby Albarado in the irons for Grant Forster, and his filly was in tight and forced to steady right about the 1/4 pole.   Sometimes it’s hard to regain your momentum and get back in gear, and she was a bridesmaid on this day. Next out may turn the table for a little payback, especially with a better rider aboard.

Our Stormin Norman (6/11/16 – Race #5 – #1 – 5f dirt) –  Joe Rocco Jr. in the saddle, and he was off slow in the 5f sprint. Going this short knocks away your chances, and you can bet dollars to donuts he’ll be a monster gaining experience from this race.

Sight Reading (6/11/16 – Race #9 – #6 – 1 1/16 turf) –  Robby A in the saddle, and his mount was roughed up a bit heading into the first turn and forced wide at different times of the race.    A maiden break is coming very soon as he regained his composure and made an honest attempt down the lane.

Santa Anita

Magical Touch (SA 6/11/16 – Race #3 – #3 – 6f dirt) –  This filly stumbled badly at the start and regained her composure nicely to finish a solid second place effort.   You may not get the greatest odds so you’ll be forced to find multi-race exotics to get you maximum payoff.

Sugaratmidnight (SA 6/11/16 – Race #6 – #3 – 6f dirt) – Santiago Gonzalez was in the drivers seat and made a very gutsy move splitting runners through a tight spot and rallied up strong for the show spot. They were moving fast and maybe 6 1/2 or 7f may be to his liking.

Stormin Trick (SA 6/11/16 – Race #10 – #10 – 5 1/2f dirt) –  Nothing like looking for a repeat winner, and Joe Talamo did an excellent job sitting as a passenger as his runner grabbed the lead and drew off to the winner’s circle. He looked to have plenty in the tank and repeat effort is not out of the question.

“Off the Charts” Trip Notes

As we close in on the final leg of the Triple Crown, there seems to be more focus on finding value than the usual talk of making history. Triple Crown winners don’t grow on trees, and this year has the interest of players with a chock-full card sure to offer up value.  The best part of Thoroughbred racing is the hope that awaits. The promise of things to come, and the beauty of majestic runners taking our breath away. Best of luck this Saturday with the Belmont card, and in the meantime. Here are some runners who deserve a good piece of your wagering bankroll.


Mascarello (BEL 6/4/16 – Race #5 – #7 – 1 1/16 turf) –  Aaron Gryder in the saddle for H.J. Bond, and his runner saw every inch of the course this day. He was forced wide into the first turn and then even wider as the race progressed. If the field covered 1 1/16, he may have covered 1 1/8.   His mount lost by 3/4 of a length on this day and that is saying a great deal for his extended trip around New York.

Inca Saint (BEL 6/5/16 – Race #2 – #4 – 1 1/16 dirt) – jockey Javier Castellano in the irons on this day, and was checked immediately after the gate break almost coming to a full stop. Once he got his runner back on stride, he was forced out wide during other points of the race.   Give this race a pass and you’ll find a better trip next out.

Belterra Park

Too Cool (BTP 6/4/16 – Race #4 – #11 – One mile turf) –  Geovany Garcia in the saddle, and his mount relished the grass course. The rains were starting and the weeds had a little glimmer of water. Breaking from the outside post is no bonus, but when you find impressive turn of foot down the lane to win in a hurry. Sometimes you keep a gal like this on your list for a return play at the windows.

Altissimo (BTP 6/4/16 – Race #5 – #10 – 6f dirt) – rider Antioco “Coco” Murgia in the irons and his runner is a perfect 2/2 over the course. The interesting part is he came closing strongly over a course that has been favoring speed. He is slated to return on Friday 6/10, and he is a part of an entry that may have short odds. If you’re looking for value you’re going to have to work on multi-race wagers.

Churchill Downs

Casses Story (CD 6/4/16 – Race #1 – #1 – 5f dirt) – Miguel Mena in the saddle and his mount was soundly bumped after the gate break, and was put in tight quarters at the 5/16th pole. Troubled trips often give us a great wagering opportunity next out, and this guy fits the bill.

Kylers Song (CD 6/4/16 – Race #4 – #1 – one mile dirt) –  Jack Gilligan at the controls, and his mount broke tardy from the gate and to rush into contention.   Once settled, his charge caught my eye as a runner making up good ground very easily.
