AGOS Horses to Watch & Trip Notes – Aug. 9, 2018

Horses to watch for AGOS visitors.  Put these runners in your Stable Alert service.

ELLIS PARK

BORDINI (Race 7 @ELP, 8/5/18) – live runner from the Amoss barn raced inside of traffic and then got shuffled back to last behind not one but two walls of horses.  Swept to the far outside, which is not where you want to be at Ellis, and unleash a good late run for a sneaky good effort.

SARATOGA

OUR GIRL ABBY (Race 5 @SAR, 7/21/18) – made a wide move turning for home to engage the gate-to-wire winner in deep stretch. Exchanged bumps with that filly and lost the bob in a solid performance.  This was her first start since March and her first for her new barn, who raised her confidently in class.

PUTTHEGLASSDOWN (Race 5 @SAR, 7/21/18) – broke from the rail in her debut at the Spa for Englehart.   Settled in 8th before making a nice run to get up for the place spot behind the winning Asmussen favorite.  The PA-bred daughter of Violence is out of a stakes winning mare.

PICTURE DAY (Race 3 @SAR, 7/26/18) – Linda Rice runner loves to win and she was one of the few that closed against the bias in the slop on this Thursday afternoon.  A stakes winner, this Include mare is tough in the optional claiming sprints.

TRINNI NINJA (Race 10 @SAR, 7/27/18) – Daughter of Trinniberg was one of the few to close against the bias on this day.  She is in good form and might be able to break through for low percentage connections next time out at the state-bred maiden $25,000 (or lower) level.  Demand some value.

CATORIA (Race 5 @SAR 8/1/18) – Wildcat Heir filly outran other speed in this race and took this field gate to wire, beating the heavy favorite at 23-1 for Mike Dini.  She is out of a Meadowlake mare and will be dangerous at 6 1/2 or under.

BROCKMONINOFF (Race 3 @SAR 8/1/18) – George Weaver runner was bet down on the drop in class despite his first race since last October.  Suffered some trouble in this race and came up a little short.  Barn is only 12% off  layoffs and this NY bred should move forward next time out.  Can dirt or turf.

LIGHT THE POSSE (Race 2 @SAR 8/2/18) – Betting favorite was making his second career start off a good 2nd in debut and adding Lasix.  The son of Posse ended up hurt badly by a modest pace set by the eventual gate to wire winner.  Can score at this level next time out.

SARATOGA

MORRISON (Race 8 @SAR, 7/25/18) – 3yo is now two for two against state bred company on the lawn.  Joe Sharp runner upset a good field that included two veteran nine year olds.

TAYLER’S THE BOSS (Race 2 @SAR, 7/25/18) – 3yo daughter of Street Boss dropped into open company, facing two life, but was also facing a very strong favorite in the eventual wire-to-wire winner.   She chased that older filly around the track in a very good performance for trainer Steve Asmussen.

TURCO BRAVO (CHI) (Race 1 @SAR 7/20/18) – new runner in the low percentage Barrera barn ran a big race in the opening of the Saratoga meet.  He stumbled at the start and recovered to run a clear second to a drop-down winner.  Loves the Saratoga main track.

SHADY SHADY SHADY (Race 2 @SAR 7/20/18) – Finished well in this state-bred turf sprint behind the winning favorite from the Chad Brown barn.  Solid effort for a barn that is only 8% with debut runners.  She is out of a stakes placed Street Sense mare.

LYRICAL LADY (Race 5 @SAR 7/20/18) – $625,000 purchase for Phoenix Stable crushed his field first out for trainer Steve Asmussen.  Daughter of More Than Ready is out of stakes placed La Song and looks to have a bright future.
