Mohawk: Horses to watch from September 5 - September 9


Thursday, September 5

INSTANT THRILL (CLM8000) Left well to the top, yielded and was shuffled back, sat on the rail to the lane, had room inside and rushed home to just miss the short-priced favorite.

FRAME WORTHY (NW8000\2YOF) Left, tucked, pulled and brushed to the top, set a pressed pace and proved second best to the favorite despite a stubborn effort.

SUCKITUPBUTTERCUP (NW1\3YOF) Was stuck on the rail in the lane, searched for room through the stretch but never found a route to launch a bid.

MADEMOISELLE PARIS (NW2FM) Raced uncovered, grinded up to the lane, rallied gamely but could not outkick the favored winner.

Friday, September 6

YOSELIN SEELSTER (NW2/2YOF) Finished fastest but it was a whisp too late. Should be a stretch factor for next race or two.

GRACIE MONTANA (NW8000FM) Was parked a long way to gain command, set a pressed pace and tired. Could suprise with right trip.

BUGGER BRUISER (NW3/2YO) Won easily going down the road in last effort over a tiring track that wasn't kind to front end speed; should repeat.

MACHLEEN (NW5000FM) Began a rally up the inside and seemed destined for more but had to take up losing best momentum.

Saturday, September 7

BESTOFBEST HANOVER (NW25000) Won his third straight with a game rally and has to be used until streak stops.

ASLAN (NW3) Closed gamest to nail the slight favorite in last as two rallied from far back chasing fast numbers; should be able to get another.

RED BUGLER (NW5000) Had no shot to catch the winner but gobbled up six or seven foes in stout stretch rally last time.

GRANDEE SEELSTER (NW8000) Was parked and used a long way to grab the lead past the half, set a good clip and held with solid pace for the impressive win.

Monday, September 9

OZZY OZZY (NW2) Flashed strong late trot from far back in last to be second best to the favorite.

HIPPIE CHICK (OntSS) Was in the pocket heading home but had to take up and alter course when the leader got rough and left the course.

BLUE CHIP SUNSHINE (NW2) Left, tucked, sat pocket to the lane, had traffic, angled to the outside and finished gamely; need only have had more room when needed to "get 'er done.''

GREAT WHITE WAY (2YO) Brushed early to the lead, set his own pace and had plenty left indicating he can win another.
