Cliquish: Stylish Win After Trouble at the Start

Three year old filly for Phil D’Amato made start #2 on Sunday in an optional claimer/maiden race at ¾ on the main for three year olds. Off as the 6/5 choice in a field of 7, the ground appeared to break from under her at the start and she was away last. Seven lengths back of the leader by the half mile pole, she quickly made up ground with a huge move at the 3/8 pole, got the lead at the top of the lane, and cruised on home under a hand ride to win by 10. It was a stylish win for this daughter of Bernardini and she appears to have a bright future.

Generally horses that are on the Horses To Watch list ran into unexpected trouble, bad luck, and/or didn’t run the race we believe Cliquish was cabable of.  We expected that if Cliquish gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Cliquish performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Cliquish last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Cliquish next start.  If Cliquish appears to have earned higher performance figures in the last race when running into trouble  as compared to the rest of the field’s expected perfomance in the upcoming race than there is a good chance that Cliquish will dominate the race.
