Mohawk: Horses to watch from Oct. 7 - Oct. 11


Friday, October 7

HARPER BLUE CHIP (NW12000) beaten favorite was locked in the pocket and can atone with better racing luck.

EXEMPLAR (NW12000) split traffic late in same race and stormed home. Can take another.

TONIGHTIMLOVINGYOU (NW4FM) filly trailed to the final turn, hit the gas, charged wide into the lane and closed with a rush but had too far to come. 

DONTBRUISECARRIE (NW6000FM) finished full of pace as she cleared stretch traffic but the pacesetting favorite had gotten away.

Saturday, October 8

VEGAS ROCKS (NW9000) left well, settled in, sat raging throughout, tipped in the final turn and blew them away with huge finish.

EAST END (NW2) sat in uninterested to the lane, had pace, found some room and closed willingly. Can surprise so do not ignore. 

POISONOUS (NW6) raced 4th over, followed the winning odds-on favorite's wide move and chased home home with good pace.

HALF A BILLION (NW6200) rallied wide a long way and closed gamely at nearly 30-1 to lose to the odds-on favorite.

Monday, October 10

INCREDIBLE FRANK (CLMHCP12/15000) tucked early, had stretch traffic but closed well once clear but it was too late.

SAFEKEEPING (NW2) brushed and crushed and should take another.

LITTLE STUIE (CLMHCP12/15000) left to the lead, yielded and was shuffled, slipped out wide heading home and finished best of all.

LEAFS AND WINGS (NW2800) beaten favorite sat to the rear, rallied strongly in the lane but had much too far to come. Obviously he has to get more involved much earlier.

Tuesday, October 11

EMPEROR (CLMHCP15/20000/3YO) was steppy at the start, got away slowly at 50-1, sat to the rear and charged home picking up a bunch of foes.

LITTLE RED CHEV (NW3500) came uncovered in the final turn with impressive rally in last and should take another.

LITTLE QUICK (CLM8000) tucked twice along the way and rallied gamely in the lane. An improved post or better trip should make him tough in next race or two.

BAGS FOR ALL (NW3500) trotter left well, tucked, came out to the half, challenged al the way and was best. Well bet favorite can be tough enough to take another.

SENIOR K (NW2) was nailed in the late stages but put in a very determined effort on the front end last time over a track that was cruel to pacesetters.
