Pocono: Horses to watch from August 11 - August 16


Tuesday, August 11

CC JERMEY (NW3) rallied gamely and was outfinished. Garcia-Herrera will have trying again in no time and he could get it done.

MOONSHINE RUNNER (NW3FM) rallied well the last three-eighths at 22-1 and earns look in next.

ALBANY GIRL (Stallion) had to go wide around stopping cover heading to the third panel, cleared, chased uncovered and got nipped in the last steps.

ENDLESS SUMMER (Stallion) was reserved at the back, pulled third over in the final turn, closed well but had too far to come.

TIPTON TEEEZ (Stallion) rushed to the top, yielded for the pocket, got boxed and shuffled as the lead changed heading home, rallied when free but the winner had gotten away.

Wednesday, August 12

KEYSTONE COUGAR (NW3FM) put in a very good down-the-road effort in last and was caught in the last step by the fast-closing prohibitive favorite.

BREWSKI (NW6000M) closed very well between horses in blanket finish and just missed.

LIGHTNING PAIGE (NW15000M) had the pocket but struggled to find room, closed willingly once clear but had freed a few steps too late.

MUSCLE MASSACRE (NW5) was on the front end, battled long and hard as the prohibitive odds-on favorite tested his mettle all the way, tired from the battle held well enough to indicate he should get it done soon.

Friday, August 14

IN MINT CONDTION (CLMHCP5/7500) was victimized by poor cover and forced to come wide a long way chasing the pacesettering co-favorite home to be second best. Should take home top prize soon.

GJ PHOTO VICTORY (CLMHCP75/10000) came uncovered the final turn and could not get to the pacesetter. Beaten favorite comes from barn that is always around the money. Do not ignore.

LIFE DREAM HANOVER (CLMHCP125/15000) was parked the mile, gained cover at the half, followed to the lane, rallied gamely and was still coming at the wire. Can get luckier in next. 

GRAY N CLOUDY (CLM11000) left, tucked, got shuffled, rallied too late and should not be ignored.

Saturday, August 15

ASHLEYS HUSBAND (NW17500) closed strong from third over in last and earns a long look in next.

YUCATAN (CLMHCP20/25000) finished full of pace from far back at 25-1 in last outing.

ROAD UNTRAVELED (NW9300) rolled down the road to the last step in most recent outing. Beaten favorite should make amends in next.

HRUBYS N LUCK (CLMHCP15/20000) rushed to the lead, yielded to the prohibitive favorite. Stalked in the pocket to the lane, rallied gamely but could not get there. Same trip and same rally would beat most this level.

Sunday, August 16

REDS WINNER (NW1FM) made a brush to the top and proved best while on own.

SWIFT AS A SHADOW (NW4500) made a wide bold move to the top and never stopped as he drew off.

WHEELS (NW4500) was parked the mile, challenged all the way in game effort. Should get lucky soon.

ROARING REI (NW3000) came uncovered, challenged the odds-on favorite through the middle half and hung around for a share of the pot in game effort.
