Pocono: Horses to watch from April 1 - April 2


Tuesday, April 1

LUCKY COLBY (3-4YO/NW2) Could have gone around again and drew further away from field in last.

PARTY ALLSTAR (NW4000) Came wide into the stretch and finished with mighty strides but just missed.

ALITTLEESTERMAGIC (NW4000M) Tipped wide heading home from back of the pack and closed strongly, albeit too late.

FOUR STARZ KYLE (NW8000) Was quick to the lead but stung early, had to yielded, got shuflfed a bit, pulled uncovered and chased the pace all the way home in game, tough luck effort.

LIGHTNING PAIGE (NW7000M) Was third over in a poor flow of outer (non)movement and hardly had a chance despite being only 5-1. She should show more life in next and should not be ignored.

Wednesday, April 2

AMERICAN HILL (CLMHCP75/1000M) Was used hard in last parked to the lead from the outside, yielded and retook, set the pace under pressure and tired. Should be luckier in near future.

QUANTUM CASHMAN (CLMHCP20/25000) Trotter left well to the lead, yielded and was shuffled back, had good rally in tight quarters, managed to find late room to get up for 2nd best to a tough winner. Should find a beatable field soon.

GIVEITTOEMSTAIGHT (NW10500M) Left, tucked, pulled and brushed, set a press clip, yielded heading home and tired. Should be tighter in next and win is forthcoming.

FLASHBACKS (NW10000) Pulled uncovered past the half, rushed up aggressively, challenged all out to the last steps and need only make that move a bit later or against a bit weaker to gain a photo-op.

UP FRONT CRUISER (CLMHCP15/20000M) Followed poor cover, had to go wide in the turn, closed a ton from the impossible spot and looms as winner in next.
