Pocono: Horses to watch from July 21 - July 26


Tuesday, July 21

GINNY WEASLEY (STALLION) made a game rally the last three-eighths and was second best. Should find a few winners circles in near future.

IM VOLO (STALLION) put in a good effort in last to finish in the photo. She left to an early pocket, got shuffled back when the winner made the top and pulled away, tipped and chased her home with good speed.

MOOTS (STALLION) tipped heading home, rallied strongly, seemed to have aim on the win but made what appeared to be a speed break and failed on the wire.

SHORTSTORY HANOVER (STALLION) was a convincing winner in last brushing strongly to command to the third panel and should be tough to beat next time out.

QUICK AINT FAIR (NW2FM) won by a ton and it could have a ton and a half. Prohibitive favorite can beat better if this was any indication. 

Wednesday, July 22

BROKEN RECORD (NW5) rallied with good trot to be second best in last and earns a long look in next.

CASINO CUTIE IT (NW2F) sat pocket and never stopped trying through the lane. Detrmination is always rewarded sooner than later.

ICOMMANDMYSPIRIT (NW13500M) closed strong and nailed it on the wire. Front end speed ruled that night and this one has to be mentioned as she came from far back.

TOP BRAND (NW6000M) closed with good pace from second over and just missed in last.

COLLAGE (NW6000M) had too far to come in last but made a decent last move the last three quarters and may surprise so take a chance.

Friday, July 24

PLAY IT AGAIN SAM (CLM11000) sat near the back, rallied late and should not be ignored.

BIG TIME ROCKS (NW3500) flashed some late foot in race won by a front stepping prohibitive favorite and could improve a bunch in next if the matchup is better.

DREAM DEFENCE N (CLMHCP125/15000) yielded and retook, met modest pressure and weakened late to lose to a pocket-sitter. Beaten favorite can atone immediately.

RACER X (NW3500) sat pocket, pounced when ready and won going away. Can and should take another or two.

Saturday, July 25

JOHNS POLYVIEW (CLM12500) had the top,got shuffled back, tipped in the final turn, swung wide and finished strongly.

CAPELO (CLM10000) closed strong between horses but a few steps too late.

MYSTICAL WALTER (CLMHCP15/20000) rallied inside in tight quarters and this beaten favorite could be luckier in next.

CADILLAC PHIL (NW13500) got shuffled after an early lead, tipped in the final turn and rallied gamely but too late.

MUSSELSFRMBRUSSELS (NW13500) closed best of all but had too far to come. 

Sunday, July 26

MAJOR PLAYER (NW3000) rallied well coming up the cones at 75-1 and did not miss by much. He earned a look in next race or two.

ESTHERS SECRET (NW1/3-4YOFM) was uncovered a long way at 24-1 and gutted out second to a much fresher foe.

ISABELLA HANOVER (NW1/3-4YOFM) tipped from the back in the final turn, started to come wide, darted back inside and followed the winner up the rail with good trot. Do not ignore.

P L HOOFHEARTED (NW4500) brushed and crushed and will be hard to beat in next.

ITS A BIG SECRET (NW5) this well-bet lady burned money in last but was the victim of a brutal trip and might right the ship in no time.
