Mohawk: Horses to watch from August 21 - August 25


Tuesday, August 19

WIZARD OF OSNEY (NW15000/3YO) put in a good but second best front stepping effort in last.

HERE COMES WILLIAM (NW2) left, tucked, got shuffled, pulled, brushed, took the lead,opened up heading home, dug in gamely all out but the winner refused to go away. Should make the same move and win most efforts.

DRAIN DADDY (NW2000) tucked early, pulled to the half, rallied uncovered, challenged, took over heading home and can step up to another win.

NORMSTRIKESFAME (NW2) put in one hellacious effort in last getting parked forever, challenging uncovered and won gamely. Such determination and gameness wins more than a few races.

ANDREIOS KARDIA (GRASSROOTS) finished third from last with bid rally missing the whole ball of wax by less than a length.

Thurday, August 21

D G NICKABOCKER (NW15000FM) had no shot coming into the lane having to rally from 4th over but put in a quick closing effort that got her up for second on a night favoring front end speed.

SO NOT COOL (NW2) granted the speed tried to cough up a huge lead through the lane but this one came wide and made up lotsa ground.

MR LINDY (NW2) left, tucked, pulled to the half, brushed to the lead and that was that. Should be able to do it again.

Friday, August 22

THE ONLY ONE (NW4000) tucked early, tucked again around a quitting pocket horse, sat pocket to the lane and rallied well but was second best.

MARLEE B (NW13000FM) followed wide through the lane and was moving well at the wire hitting the last panel timer at :25 4/5, but had too far to come.

BACK YARD BABY (NW5200FM) had cover, rallied well, loomed and had dead aim but was nailed by the late closing favorite.

LIFETIME PURSUIT (CASUALBREEZE) left, tucked, pulled past the half, brushed to the lead and won easily.

Saturday, August 23

DANCIN HILL (NW3) tucked early, brushed to the lead, won easily and should be able to take another.

NORTHERN VICTORY (NW15000) roared home with huge finish and repeats with any effort near to that.

MACHAL JORDAN (NW6000) finished full of pace in last and earns long long look in next.

ODDS ON EQUULEUS (PRF) tossed a :25 2/5 last panel through the lane in last effort.

Monday, August 25

EXHILARATED (OntSS) finished gamely to get second and earns long look in future races.

MEA LILLEY MARK (GRASSROOTS) had her wheels clipped by an overeager foe taking the lead, lost some steps, rallied gamely through the lane.

MOMARA (GRASSROOTS) closed well from a far back fifth over in last with a quick closing panel.

STANDING MY GROUND (NW4000) closed determinedly to catch the leader who had about five lenghths in early stretch.
