Horses to Watch – Ed Meyer
The autumn racing season is next up to watch and wager, and this is what the racing world has been sweating out all summer. This past weekend was a little reminder of what Mother Nature gave us the past three months. Her sweltering heat will be replaced by crisp autumn breezes and a foliage show that illuminates most of the country. – As you start digging out your hoodies and winter clothes, keep your eyes peeled for these runners the next time they hit the track. They have an excuse, and this could translate to a bumper payday next time to the races. – Best of luck from your friends at BetPTC.com !
Race #3 – #4 – Mo Town – 1 mile on the dirt
Impressive son of Uncle Mo settled out and drew off to win by a powerful 7 lengths for the Tony Dutrow barn. – He is a playback and may offer a price moving up the ladder.
Race #6 – #7 – On Tap – 7f on the dirt
Linda Rice trainee was three-wide early and dug in gamely to present a solid challenge down the lane to get 2nd money.
Race #8 – #7 – Stormy Victoria – 1 mile on the turf
The G-3 Noble Damsel stakes was not kind as this gal never looked comfortable one step. Three wide, unsettled, and just off the bit during the race but somehow managed a solid effort in the final stages to be third.
Race #10 – #7 – Sneaky Fudge Face – 6f on the dirt
Awkward at the start as the gates opened and was forced to take up sharply. Scrap this race from your memory, and hopefully she’ll have the opportunity to come back and give a better effort.
Race #1 – #1 – Incensed – 5f on the turf
Bumped soundly at the break, and soldiered on as the beaten chalk to finish up a game second place finish.
Race #8 – #8 – Leofric – 1 1/16 on the dirt
He was forced into a traffic jam and had to split runners twice to get into position. Once free, he came under a strong ride to get the show money.
