Mohawk: Horses to watch from June 5 - June 9


Thursday, June 5

THISGIRLISONFIRE (NW1/3YO) put in a good down the road effort only to get nailed in the late stages by a tripped-out foe. Speed did not rule this time around but this one should get it done soon.

MACHS BOY (NW1/3YO) also took the field as far as he could on the front end, tired but dug in stubbornly enough to warrant a look in next.

VILLAGE JESSICA (NW2FM) went to the top, yielded, retook and went down the road in front-stepping effort on night when most speed was giving way.

PALM BEACH HANOVER (NW1/3YO) left, tucked, pulled and brushed and was gone in strong mile.

Friday, June 6

CHERYLS SURPRISE (CLMHCP8/12000FM) was parked for the mile in last, raced uncovered, challenged determinedly all the way to the lane and faltered. Next time she goes to the top and down the road?

BUTTON FLY (CLM15000) Left well, tucked, pulled to the half, challenged uncovered to the lane, took the lead but gave way late. He made all the right moves and will be tougher in next outing or two.

BOAT ROAD ROW (NW8800FM) came uncovered approaching the half, challenged to the lane, took the lead early stretch, battled but could not last.

BAROCKEY (NW2500FM) went to the top, met pressure the last panel, dug in but the speed was not holding well on that night. He should score over a more favorable track.

Saturday, June 7

THUNDER STEELER (NW9200) was parked to command, set a good clip and crushed the field and the variant and the bias.

BETTOR'S EDGE (NW27000) was parked from the 10-hole, took the lead, never looked back leaving plenty in the tank in quick mile over a track where speed was faltering.

PRAIRIE ILLUSION (NW14000FM) pulled the pocket to the third panel, challenged, had aim but faltered.

TWIN B IMPRPESSIVE (NW18000) was bothered by a breaker past the half, cleared trouble, raced third over, came wide into the lane with good finish.

Monday, June 9

ZEUS LIGHTNING (NW9400) rallied late from far back in last passing a bunch of foes.

HOPIESDRAGNINTHEDO (NW3) was parked forever in last, challenged to the lane and tired.

HER NAME IS LOLOA (NW9400) tucked, pulled to the, brushed to the top and got away. Can take another sooner than later.

CLASSIC GENT (NW2500) made two moves to the top, yielded twice, sat pocket, pulled again to challenge but it was too much to ask.
