Pocono: Horses to watch from June 18 - June 21


Saturday, June 18

SOMEWHERE FANCY (NW75000) closed well but too late and should not be ignored.

CAMCRUISER HANOVER (CLM20000) broke before the start, settled at the back and closed with pace but the beaten favorite had lost his chance. 

BROADIES SONG (CLM12500) closed powerfully and won going away in quick time and can take another.

POSSESSED FASHION (NW75000) trotter went down the road in game effort on a night when speed was failing and lost the pocket sitting favorite with the rest of the field lengths behind.

MCCEDES (CLM15000) yielded 2x, sat pocket and cruised home with third move.

Sunday, June 19

EXPLOSIVE MAN (NW7) was parked the mile, challenged all the way and tired.

PITTSTOP KIP (CLMHCP20/25000) was shuffled and seemed in trouble the final turn, slipped out, hit the engine and won going away for 2nd straight win.

L DEES BLISS (NW1FM) made a long grinding uncovered move, won going away to crack her maiden.

LIMA CADILLAC (NW1) was parked a long way for the lead, got the top and that was it. Much the best in debut, totally wrapped up and should take another.

Monday, June 20

SPIRIT SQUAD (STALLION) first victory was a strong uncovered going away romp and she will be heard from in the series.

TYLER THE TERROR (NW5) ranged up uncovered, challenged at the third panel and buried the speed drawing off strongly.

CHEYENNE PATTI (CLMHCP75/10000FM) closed well from second over at 85-1 but was outkicked. Do not ignore in next race or two.

GOTTA LOVE HIM (NW3000) challenged uncovered a long way, wore down the speed but was second best to the pocket-sitting favorite.  

Tuesday, June 21

DEMONS N DIAMONDS (NW3000) took a quick tuck, pulled to the half with a bold brush to the lead, opened up but was proven second best to the power closing strides of the odds-on favorite.  The move was more than enough to defeat most this level.

WILL SELF (NW3) put in a good front-stepping effort in last but shortened stride in the lane. Beaten favorite can get it done if a bit tighter.

SIMPLY BUSINESS (NW6000) set a good clip only to get nailed on the wire by the fast-closing winner.

QUICK THRILL (NW3000M) left well, took the lead, got shuffled, rallied late and just missed at nearly 50-1.
