Chester / Harrah's Philadelphia: Horses to watch for Apr. 25 - Apr. 29

Email

Wednesday, April 25

ELODIE ($15/$20,000 Clm FM) - Dueled long and hard, proved very stubborn and dug in for the dead-heat.

WESTERN AVENUE ($12,500 Clm) - Never saw the rail, kept coming in a gutsy try.

Thursday, April 26

TRITECH (NW3) - Trainer David Martin enlisted Yannick Gingras to drive, and this trotter woke up with a good effort. Look for another catch-driver next out.

DON'T POINT AT (NW18000 FM) - Had poor cover, launched a menacing four wide move in the turn and understandably flattened out.

Friday, April 27

ASHES N DUST (NW5) - Gelding was uncovered a long way into a nicely rated pace, never seriously threatened but didn't tire that badly either.

Sunday, April 29

COOL COLBY (NW13000) – Angled out wide on the final turn, got pushed wide to avoid a breaker, closed with plenty but ran out of ground.

MCKEE LARGO ($15/$20,000 Clm) – Lost cover to the half, dueled hard the final three eighths before being rebuffed; pacer is very sharp now.
