Email

Saturday, April 19

SCHOOLKIDS (NW15000) Put in an amazing parked the mile effort in last from post nine. He ranged up, challenged the last half and was still battling at the wire.

NABBER AGAIN (CLM1000) Left well, tucked, pulled to the third panel, rallied wide around cover heading home and was gamest in the battle for second.

HIGHLAND BOREAS (CLM12500) Sat buried on the rail heading home, slipped out, found a route rallied strongly with the best late legs but too far to come.

RACING ROCKY (CLM15000) Looked like Rocky Balboa out there in last. He got roughed up three wide trying to challenge, had to take back and find a tuck but our hero wasn't done. He came out again to battle the pacesetter (not Apollo Creed) uncovered but was done by mid lane. He will get it done soon.  

Tuesday, April 22

SKINNYDIP HANOVER (NW1/3-4YOFM) left to the top, yielded and was shuffled, pulled again and brushed to the top, sat pocket and was second best to the favorite.

UNTOUCHABLE ONE (NW7000) Left to the top, yielded and was shuffled, pulled uncovered, challenged to the lane and powered home with enough left to indicate he can score again.

PARTY HANOVER (NW7000M) Lost cover when the lead changed, grinded up, rallied steadily and kept coming. Beaten fave can reward patient backers in next.

MOSEE TERROR (NW7000) Tucked to the quarter, pulled uncovered passing the half, challenged the favorite to the wire and was easily next best.

Wednesday, April 23

MCCOVEY (CLM15000) Had poor cover to the turn, tipped, rushed wide and finished well but it was too far to come on another speed favoring night.

FLYING COWBOY (CLM15000) Charged home with good speed but it was much too late.

AMERICAN HILL (CLM10000M)Had poor cover, got looped wide, followed into the stretch with game finish.

WHATA DONATO (NW15500) Tucked early, pulled and followed cover to the stretch, tipped and chased the winner home outkicking the favorite in the process.

SCRATCH OFF (CLMHCP20/25000) Made an early move, rushed up, got parked, challenged the odds-on winning favorite a long way and battled for his share as he tired.
