Pocono: Horses to watch from June 18 - June 24


Wednesday, June 18

CHAPLIN HALL (CLM15000) was far back passing the half and launched a long rally coming wide passing the third panel with good trot but flattened out. Will be much tougher with better trip.

DIAMONDS PRINCESS (CLMHCP5/7500M) left well, tucked, pulled to the half, hoped to gain cover but was forced to navigate unescorted, rallied to engage the winner, tested her but was second best.

ARODASI (NW13500M) made a game rally from an impossible spot and would have been very dangerous if closer to the action entering the lane.

SKY ARTIST (NW4/3-4YOFM) rallied gamely ranging up to the pace, closed too late but only lost by a bit. A little more life and she gets the win.

Saturday, June 21

SCREEN THE CALL (CLM27500) put in an impressive long uncovered challenge at 28-1 only to be nailed by the fresher late-closing winner.

MILLENIUM WHEEL (CLM20000) was out to the top, yielded and got a bad shuffle in the final turn when the pocket horse packed it in. Managed to snake clear and roard home but it was too late.

SCOTT ROCKS (NW12500) left and was parked wide, took back, tucked briefly, pulled by the half third over, swung wide passing the three quarters and came home with good pace in nothing but tough-luck effort.

JUSTIFIED (NW19000) was second over to great cover as two leaders battled hard the last quarter and was gamely best of the rest.

Sunday, June 22

KING ROYALTY (NW3) was parked to the half, took the lead past the marker, faced pressure the last three-eighths and was a well used but impressive winner drawing off in the lane with plenty left for next time.

CHIPS LAKE (NW4000) put in a long uncovered journey chasing a trotting-away leader and kept coming through the lane in game effort.

ST LADS HE MAN (CLMHCP10/125000) charged wide passing the third panel and finished through the lane with good pace but had too far to come.

TAURUS LAUXMONT (NW1) brushed to command to the half, went down the road under pressure and gutted out second in second race off a layoff. Should be tight enough in next.

Tuesday, June 24

SAWBUCK (NW5) was a game second in an uncovered attempt in last beaten by the horse that rode his cover.

SKINNYDIP HANOVER (NW1FM) wend down the road and was best with a little urging to keep the pocket sitter at bay and should be able to take another.

MY LEAP OF FAITH (NW12500) was parked, found a tuck, pulled past the half, raced uncovered and battled bgamely to the wire losing only to the pocketsitting odds-on favorite.

CAVIAR CALL GIRL (NW1FM) wired the field easily and could not have been more wrapped-up at the end.
