Mohawk: Horses to watch from June 17 - June 23

Email

Tuesday, June 17

SURPRISE HANOVER (NW2) was parked to the quarter, tucked, pulled at the half, chased uncovered and gamed out second to the favored tripped-out pocket horse.

FORK (NW13000) had some traffic problems through the lane, found a late route between horses and rallied all to gain second.

PROTEGE SEELSTER (CLM12000) left, tucked, pulled uncovered, attacked the leader, wore him down but could not last in game effort.

MAJOR HANOVER (NW1/3YOF) put in a game down the road effort in last and should earn a victory soon.

Thursday, June 19

RED SOLO CUP (NW1/3YO) had all the worst of it getting to the top. Looped off the gate and parked behind cover, had to go wide to avoid trouble when cover broke, rallied to the top, put away a challenger by headstretch and was an impressive winner.

REGALLY READY (OntSS) left and tucked, pulled early, launched a long uncovered bid and was an excellent second best in her division of the Grassroots.

SHELLYSSILVERMOON (OntSS) finished well from an impossible spot in last to get for second chasing a tiring winner to the wire in her Grassroots division.

BIG TREAT (OntSS) tipped wide into the lane and closed best of all in her division of the Grassroots but had much to far to come.

Friday, June 20

DEMENTED (NW2) left to the top, yielded and was shuffled to the three hole, pulled to the third panel, rallied uncovered, chased the favorite, could not gain but held off the others for a game second.

DEETZY (2YO) saved to the lane, tipped mid stretch and closed strongly at 56-1 to get up for second to the tight-lined prohibitive favorite winner.

GREYSTONE LADYLIKE (NW9500)FM closed strongest to just missed the weakening winner in last and should be along in time next race or two.

POLK DOT HANOVER (TOWN PRO) put in one amazing late rush in her division of first round action and cannot be ignored in 2nd leg.

OCEANVIEW BINDI (NW5200FM) was used and abused in last at 63-1 getting parked for life and challenging the pacesetter to mid lane.

Saturday, June 21

DOUBLEDOWN GASS (NW3) was on the lead and under constant duress throughout the mile, dug in gamely but could not last.

HER NAME IS LOLA (NW3) was parked the mile, challenged the pacesetter determinedly throughout but tired by headstretch.

ST LADS PEEPER (NW15000FM) left, took the top, yielded and was shuffled, pulled uncovered, chalelnged hard, had aim early stretch but the short-priced favorite was too strong and too fresh to ward off.

STEADY WARRIOR (NW3) closed gamely from third over but just missed the favored winner.

Monday, June 23

MAJOR STARLIGHT (SUMMERTIME) finished like a bat out of hell from an impossible spot and will not be 55-1 in next leg.

MIDNIGHT MAYHEM (NW1/3YOF) followed wide passing the third call, swung wider and rallied steadily over the off track but had too much to do and too little time to get it done--this time!

OPEN ALL DOORS (NW8000) came home with good speed from an impossible fourth over and earns a look in next race or two.

MY SECRET BELLE (OntSS) left, took the lead, yielded and was shuffled, lost more ground in the final turn, slipped out, set down and rallied amazingly to win going away.

Great, you added Tuesday! With your weekly column released on Wednesdays, I suggest a Thursday to Tuesday schedule/order in your horses to watch. In other words, this column should have covered Thursday, June 19 to Tuesday, June 24. That Tuesday, June 17 HTW missed the boat when the column was released the day after the following Tuesday.
