Pocono: Horses to watch from August 27 - September 2

Email

Wednesday, August 27

ALL FIRED UP (CLMHCP15/20000) was hard pressed to the half, put away that challenger, met another challenger in the lane and dug in holding him at bay but was nipped by the tripped-out pocket horse.

NORA LEE (CLM7500M) left, tucked the early pocket but was shuffled back a bit, got stuck behind a backpeddling horse in the final turn and was bothered losing any chance.

DREAS GOOD POWOW (NW4FM) finished well from third over to be second to the prohibitive front-stepping favorite over the sloppy track and earns long look in next effort.

PITTSBURGH HANOVER (NW2) rallied uncovered the last quarter totally wrapped up second best to the trotaway winner.

Friday, August 29

TROTTING R T (CLM10000) closed with trot along the rail and just missed at 37-1.

GET THE LOOK (NW4300M) closed with good speed from the back of the pack and should find a winning spot soon.

COLONIAL ROAD (NW4000) drew off easily and left plenty in the tank for next adventure.

MR CANDYMAN (CLM10000) tucked twice along the way and was second best to the favorite.

Saturday, August 30

GREAT ARTIST (CLM12500) made a huge move brushing wide to the lead passing the third panel and crushed foes.

AHEAD OFTHE CURVE (Clmhcp20/25000) closed strongest from third over but had too far to come.

CITY HALL (CLM27500) came wide into the lane and stormed home to just miss it all by a neck and two noses.

HARNESSNITENCANADA (CLM12500) was wide a long way following around a clogged outer tier and closed gamely but was nipped on the wire in dead-game effort.

Sunday, August 31

MISS WAPWALLOPEN (CLM7500) had poor cover to the lane, closed fastest of all.

BIG BILL BREEZE (NW1) brushed and crushed leaving plenty for next time.

DONNIE BOP (CLM5000) put an early challenger in the box at the quarter, battled with the uncovered winner from there to the lane and tired. If he is able to tae a breath once or twice in next, he can score at decent price.

L A CAMCHARGER (NW4) followed the favorite the last three-eighths and was a game second at the wire.

Tuesday, September 2

CANADIAN EDITION (NW2) left, suffered broken equipment, raced uncovered, pressed the pace to the third panel and tired. Better post, find a tuck, suffer no broken equipment; any one of these changes could make him a winner.

M C FELIX (NW15000) was parked to the lead after early trouble, set the pace under determined pressure, refused to yield, gutted it out through the lane and refused to lose in one of the more game performances seen at any level.

TO BEACH HIS OWN (NW7500) took the lead, yielded for the pocket but got shuffled when the lead changed late in the final turn, tipped, swung wide of cover, rallied gamely to get up for second outkicking the favorite and nearly catching the winner.

APPOMATTOX (NW15000) held court in fine style. Brushed, crushed and made them all surrender leaving plenty for the next campaign.
