NPT Horses To Watch (12/17/22)

Read about the New Pace Top (NPT) in Chapter 7 from "Blinkers Off."


Aqueduct | Race 7 | Dirt | 7 Furlongs | 2:37 ET

#11 Sweet Liberty (15/1) prompted a 75.7/62.2 NPT in last after a 2-month break and now looks to take a shot at a stakes race 2nd off the break while getting back to a dry track.


Hawthorne | Race 3 | Dirt | 6 Furlongs | 2:48 ET

#6 King Tito (15/1) looks to improve energy distribution off the 83/67 CPT in a field where he ranks as lone 4F Figure and Final Figures not far off the favorites. Shift some of that 4F to the Final and he's on par with the short prices here.


Oaklawn Park | Race 4 | Dirt | 6 Furlongs | 2:54 ET

#8 Ev's Sherman (7/2) was able to prompt 81.8/70.1 NPT off a 7-month break indicating good current condition and can now pop 2nd off the break back in 20 days here.


Oaklawn Park | Race 5 | Dirt | 8.5 Furlongs | 3:22 ET

#12 Primer Dimer (7/2) made his way out from the west coast 2 starts back and now settled, we're looking for an improved complete performance here off an 81.6/69.5 NPT and now blinkers coming off.


Tampa Bay Downs | Race 9 | Turf | 8 Furlongs | 4:25 ET

#4 Katies A Lady (8/1) gets back to the grass off an NPT/REV combo that indicates good current condition for translating over to turf. Doesn't hurt she's already a 4-time winner on this course this year alone either.


Fair Grounds | Race 8 | Dirt | 8.5 Furlongs | 5:45 ET

#4 My Bariley (15/1) features a DPT (Delayed Pace Top) meaning the runner had an NPT the last time on dirt but features intervening turf races since and is now getting back to dirt. The 70/71 DPT is within campaign here and today's 2nd and 3rd choices on the morning line ran similar Final Figure at the same trips as this one making him worth a look at a longshot price.


Delta Downs | Race 4 | Dirt | 8 Furlongs | 7:19 ET

#6 It's A Bird (5/1) got suddenly forward-spent last out prompting a 4F Figure well over previous efforts at 74.7/56.4. That race could act as a nice conditioner for sustainable pace and better finish today as he relaxes better into the stretchout to a mile.


Remington Park | Race 4 | Dirt | 6 Furlongs | 7:27 ET

#1 Banjo Bear (8/1) is in off a 78.7/65.8 NPT but the part I'm interested in is the 90.1 2F Figure prompted last out after failing to break 80+ in first four starts. Possible gate speed here from the inside.


Remington Park | Race 5 | Dirt | 6 Furlongs | 7:56 ET

#10 GP's Amazing Grace (5/1) rolls along here off two consecutive NPTs with both 4F and Final Figures incrementally improving over the last half year. Should be back to winning ways any day now (Today?).


Delta Downs | Race 7 | Dirt | 8 Furlongs | 8:43 ET

#8 Holy Emperor (7/2) got a bit forward last out going 72.6/66.4 and now catches a field that should prompt a lower 4F Figure allowing him extra finish off the NPT/SOFT combo of the last couple.


Charles Town | Race 8 | Dirt | 4.5 Furlongs | 10:32 ET

#6 Jungle Warrior (5/1) has 33 races under his belt but is still prompting NPTs with 4 new highs this year alone. He looks to cut back and set down hard here after an 85/70 NPT going 2 two turns in last. His previous NPT was set in August and resulted in a next-out win.
