Mohawk: Horses to watch from Sept. 1 - Sept. 6


Thursday, September 1

LEXUS ROCKY (CLMHCP12/15000) wired the field in easy fashion and will be hard to down in future efforts.

WINDY SPORT (2-3YOF) broke her maiden with convining wire to wire effort and seems destined to take a few more.

HILL OF A COLT (NW2) tucked, brushed and crushed leaving little to down his ability to take another race or two.

SPIRIT SHADOW (OntSS) was parked the mile, grinded up on the rim, swung wide heading home and closed strongly at 29-1 to just miss to th odds-on favorite.

Friday, September 2

BAD AS LEADER (NW11000FM) brushed to the top, faced pressure the last quarter, put away the challenger but tired and could not stall the late rally of the very determined favorite. 

KATIES BEACH (NW6000FM) left to a tuck, got shuffled back, angled out heading home and finished with power at 60-1 and earns a look in next.

GRACIES PARADE (NW3000FM) made a big move brushing to command coming to the half, opened up daylight but tired and nipped at the wire. Beaten favorite can get it done if a bit tighter in next.

VEGAS DREAM (NW2) left like a rocket from post 10, gained the lead, yielded to the odds on favorite and proved second best at 20-1 in last outing.

Saturday, September 3

AMERICAN VIRGIN (NW20000) favorite was looped off the gate, rallied to the lead and wired the field in game effort.

MOONWRITER (NW13000) won going away from second over and should continue to visit the winners circle.

BLAYDE HANOVER (NW5) came strong uncovered, challenged, battled the odds-on favorite in the lane but was second best at 28-1.

MR CARROTTS (NW8000) was in the pocket and got badly shuffled in the final turn when the leader folded, rallied with strong pace between horses but was outkicked.

ELECTRIC WESTERN (NW5) tucked early, got shuffled,had traffic in the lane, found a route and finished best of all but a bit too late.

Monday, September 5

KINGSLEY B (NW3) yielded, retook, faced strong pressure the middle half, put the challenger away by the lane and dug in but was gobbled up by the late rush of the odds-on favorite.

PERFECT CENTS (2-3YOF) well bet second choice yielded, retook, faced the pressure from the odds-on favorite but put her away to win her pari-mutuel debut impressively.

WINDSUN REVENGE (NW12000) went to the lead, never faltered and drew away strongly.

VINTAGE BABE (NW2FM) well bet second choice was in the pocket chasing the favorite and cleared too late. Should be tough to beat in next. 

Tuueday, September 6

RICHARD HILL (NW2) was off to a disasterous start, settled at the back, rallied the last quarter and finished gamely between horses in what may work out to be a "key" race. 

BUGGER JERRY (NW2) beaten favorite was in the pocket in serious traffic and never was able to rally.

THE AVENGER (NW2) came uncovered, challenged, weakened but stayed around and gamed out a third place finish while clogging up the stretch traffic.

LIMA C ME ROCK (NW2) took the lead, yielded, retook, set a pressed pace and dug in gamely keeping the rail closed.
