Mohawk: Horses to watch from Sept. 9 - Sept. 15


Tuesday, September 9

NAKED CITY (NW2) raced third over and closed well chasing the favorite to the wire and should find winning spot soon.

HERE COMES WILLIAM (NW2) closed fastest of all from a distant fourth over in exciting stretch rally.

REGAL HOPE (NW2000) had too far to come in latest but passed a few foes while pacing up a storm through the lane.     

AINTSHEASWEETIE (OntS2YOF) yielded, retook, battled determinedly from the half to the wire and refused to yield. Dug in through the lane and topped it off by refusing to yield resisting the two favorites.

Thursday, September 11

FOREGO THE CIGAR (CLMHCP8/10000) stormed home to victory with :26 4/5 last panel and can take another.

SHOW TOPPER (CLMHCP8/10000) finished with good pace to earn second best in last try and should have a victory of his own soon.

RAGAZZO DOLCE (NW2) rallied gamely to the wire but this beaten favorite could not get there. Should atone in next race or two.

LIFE IS A BEACH (NW15000FM) was rallying gamely through the lane with an eye on the prize when bothered and knocked off her game for a very costly moment. Regrouped almost immediately but that was all it took to make this one a beaten favorite in three-horse photo.

Friday, September 12

MOONLIGHT ESPOIR (NW2) sat to the final turn, tipped clear and finished gamely for second to the odds-on favorite.

NARICAN JEWEL (NW2FM) rallied late and gamely between horses with enough determination to be given a look in next race or two.

LASTING APPEAL (NW5000FM) finished full of pace in last but had much too far to come.

MAJESTIC DUHARAS (NW2) came wide, rallied gamely and proved second best at the wire to the short priced favorite.

Saturday, September 13

SECRETSOFTHEKNIGHT (NW6000) angled out, set down and closed fastest of all gobbling up foes and lengths but had too far to come.

KG DRAGONATOR (NW3) saved ground to the lane, tipped, searched, slipped wide and closed strong.

REBEKA POINT (NW17000FM) set a good clip and dug in to the last steps. Can get it done in next race or two.

SING FOR ME GEORGE (NW10000) followed the wide flow around a horse backing through the second tier and finished well but it was too far to come.

Monday, September 15

HARBOR PLACE (NW15000/3YO) finished gamely in all-out effort but just missed. Should be along in time with similar rally against most his own kind.

HIGH FLIER (NW30000/3YO) was parked a long way to gain the lead, faced pressure immediately, felt it all the way to the wire and was a dead game front stepping victor on a night when speed was folding.

RECKON IM READY (NW8000) was leaving, looking for a tuck and broke, took to the rear, began a long rally and finished with too trot in what can only be classified as a costly break.

DOUBLEDOWN GASS (NW15000) put in a brave down the road effort in last outing only to get nipped by the fresh, pocket sitting favorite.
