Pocono: Horses to watch from July 14 - July 19


Tuesday, July 14

SHORTSTORY HANVOER (NW2/2YOF) followed wide in the final turn, got steppy, took back, settled and closed strong between horses coming home.

QUIKWIT (NW3/3-4YO) challenged the last quarter, battled to the wire and just missed versus the odds-on favorite.

SOMKINDA HANOVER (Stallion) ipped in the final turn and rallied gamely to the last step coming up a disappearing nose short. Beaten favorite will make amends quickly.

TICKETTOTHEPARTY (NW3/3-4YOFM) closed well from second over but was outkicked by the perfect trip pocket horse.

Wednesday, July 15

INTERNAL CHECK (CLMHCP10/12500M) finished with good energy from second over and just missed to the even money favorite.

COLLAGE (NW6000M) sat pocket digging in gamely all the way but the odds on favorite closed too strong from second over.

VIBE BLUE CHIP (NW13000) trotted home strongest of all from an impossible spot and scores with better trip.

AMERICAN TRUTH (NW5/3-4YOFM) took the lead, yielded and got shuffled, tipped heading home, finished strong and wide but the pocketsitting favorite was not to be denied.

LIMITLESS (NW13000) was wiped out early and had too much ground to make up but finished willingly and should not be ignored.

Friday, July 17

MR CANDYMAN (CLM11000) was parked a long way and challenged uncovered to the late before weakening but still held game and has to earn a look hoping for a better trip.

CAN ART (NW3000M) was wide early, cleared, challenged to the lane and had aim but was picked off by a fresher closer.

MCACE OF ARTS (NW3000M) beaten favorite followed wide early and came wide again in the final turn before flattening out. It was a tough trip so do not ignore.

B JS RAMEAU (NW5000) tucked early, pulled to the third panel,came uncovered and won going away.

OVERLOADED (CLM11000) put in a creditable down the road effort under modest pressure and held all but the fresh pocket sittting favorite.

Saturday, July 18

ROYCE BLUE CHIP (CLM10000) sat at the back, rallied late and looks like he can find his way to the winners circle soon.

BREES CREEK (NW13000) showed little interest, closed late and can step it up when in the mood.

FOUR STARZZZ Z (CLMHCP15/20000) was parked the mile and had to follow wide around dying cover, stayed wide heading home and closed well but he was outkicked by the pocket-sitting favorite.

KING OTRA (CLMHCP15/20000) was parked behind tiring cover, went wide, cleared, challenged hard to the lane, dug in but tired.

KING ROYALTY (NW8500) got parked the mile, challenged the middle half but tired by the stretch. Could get lucky with the right trip.

Sunday, July 19

TRUE HERO (NW3) brushed and crushed and looms as repeat winner.

VERSADO (NW3000) pacer was much the best in last and can beat better with similar effort.

RACER X (NW3000) trotted up a storm on the front end and drew away heading home leaving little doubt there is more in store.

PRINCE PALANI (NW5100) was pressed twice on the front end en route to a convincing score in most recent and it would be no surprise to see him in the winners circle again.
