Pocono: Horses to watch from June 23 - June 28


Tuesday, June 23

LA DIABLA (NW3/3-4YOFM) sat pocket aching to go but was shuffled in the final turn as the leader stopped in her face. Had a good rally when clear but the reace was over.

JAY BOY (NW1/3-4YO) was badly shuffled the last turn, slipped out, hit the pedal and closed strongly but the winner was long gone.

RICH WISDOM (NW5) managed to get parked the mile in tough uncovered effort in last while attempting a retake. Better racing luck can get him home on top so look for this beaten favorite to quickly atone for mystifying effort.

IMA GOLD DIGGER N (CLMHCP75/10000) was a very impeessive odds-on winner in latest and should repeat.

Wednesday, June 24

MASTERY BLUE CHIP (NW1/3-4YOFM) well-bet second choice rallied gamely and came on steadily but ran out of race track.

CHARISMA HANOVER (NW6000M) beaten favorite had too far to come as she followed wide into the lane but closed determinedly and can make amends.

ONE BADLAND NITE (CLMHCP125/15000M) will not be 40-1 in next. Finished well from 4th over and earns a long look in next.

GODDESSS ROSA (NW9001M) had too far to come from 5th over but that was at 25-1. Do not ignore this well connected miss. 

Saturday, June 27

URIEL (NW22500) left well, took the lead at 50-1, yielded to the favorite, rallied gamely in the lane but could not gain. Do not ignore in next. 

KING ROYALTY (NW13000) finished fastest of all from third over at 20-1 in latest and earns a long look next time out.

SWEET TALKIN SATIN (NW18000) was used to the lead in last and pressed the last quarter. He held well but the fast-closing favorite would not be denied.

TOWNSLIGHT HANVOER (NW18000) was parked the mile uncovered from the half, hounded the top one to the lane and was right there to the last steps despite tiring.

BUSHWACKER (NW22500) was on the lead quickly, went down the road and was second best to the tripped out pocketsitting odds-on favorite. 

Sunday, June 28

EARN AND BURN (PaAllStars) George Anthony pointed this beaten favorite out in his post race comments. Despite the prohibitive odds, this young one may have been a bit shy about closing along the pylons. He's too good to not think he won't toughen up so give him a pass on this one.

MILLIGANS SCHOOL (PaAllStars) was on the lead as the short priced favorite and looking like he meant it but was wiped out when the green pocketsitting foe jumped in Andy Miller's pocket and nearly caused a horrific accident. Assuming the youngster comes back ready to race, he should be ready to win.

DASHPEDIA (CLMHCP5/75000) finished fast from 4th over and earns long look in next.

LOVE LIVE LAUGH (NW3000M) won going away with huge finish and should be along in time once again.  

MR CANDYMAN (NW3000) proved he is deadly at this level and can beat better.

FF BIGSHOW (NW5) rallied well in the final turn and closed strongly. Had a few steps too far to come and ran out of real estate.
