Mohawk: Horses to watch from July 2 to July 4


Thursday, July 2

READY ANY TIME (2YOF) was gapping early, broke, rallied back and finished best of all. Beaten favorite may have been just unlucky and deserves a look in next.

V FOR VICTORY (2YO) grinded uncovered the last three-eighths and kept coming to the wire. A better trip might be all it takes.

UNITALIANO BI (2YO) avoided early breakers, tucked, pulled past the quarter, brushed strongly to the lead, set his own pace but tired. Beaten favorite has the move, better timing would probably earn him quick atonement.

ONEIDA (NW2) the winner brushed quickly to the lead and got away. This beaten favorite was too far back to expect a win but closed best of all.

PISCEAN (NW2) left to the top, yielded, got shuffled, found traffic early stretch, jumped off stride while looking for room and may surprise in next race or two.

Friday, July 3

THE CATAMOUNT KID (2YO) favorite sat pocket and searched for room, found it too late to nail the winner but closed with pace.

STONEBRIDGE BEACH (2YO) sat three-holed to the lane, angled out clearing traffic, finished well and should be a threat in next.

ALOT OF SENSE (CLM15000FM) was a distant 5th over, followed wide heading home and hit a good stride in mid lane.

MYSTIQUE BEACHBUM (NW12500FM) followed the winner and was second best in game finish.

Saturday, July 4

MAGIC MADNESS (NW3) beaten favorite was trotting of a storm in the late stages but it was too late. Should atone sooner than later.

KEYSTONE TREVOR (NW4000) showed good late foot from 4th over on a night when speed ruled. Well-connected battler should find the winner's circle soon.

IDEAL SHADOW (NW13500) rushed home in quick order but just missed.

REGAL LUCK (NW8500FM) beaten favorite took a seat but got the shuffle to third, gained clearance and hit best stride a step or two late but was coming on when the camera flashed.
