Pocono: Horses to watch from June 4 - June 10


Wednesday, June 4

BELIEVE THIS BOB (NW10000) was parked early, found a seat, rallied inside the last quarter impoving postion, tipped heading home and rallied again in game second.

ALWAYS A ROMANCE (NW2/3-4YOFM) finsished strongly from back of the pack and has to be considered in next race or two.

SMOKIN N GRININ (CLM15000M) put in a game, stubborn try from the rail in latest going down the road but was unable to hold off the odds-on favorite.

ALLSTAR RATING (NW4FM/3-4YO) winning favorite made a strong wide move in the final turn and closed a ton on one of those Pocono nights when speed was holding. Should be able to nail another or two victories.

Saturday Afternoon, June 7

KEYSTONE THOMAS (NW4000) left no doubters with huge down the road victory in last and should step up easily.

DUNESIDE MIKE (NW2/3-4YO) was shuffled out in the final turn or so it seemed. Searched frantically early stretch, tipped wide, set down and roared home to nail the favorite on the line.

BIG IS BETTER (NW2/3-4YO) seemed to be gaming out an uncovered win between horses in last when nailed on the wire but a flying winner. Beaten favorite should atone.

Saturday Evening, June 7

NITESICANTREMEMBER (NW12500) left to the top, yielded, sat pocket and rallied gamely but came up a neck short.

MOVEOUTOFMYWAY (NW12500) left,tucked, got shuffled as the winner brushed, sat three holed, rallied late but it wasn't enough. Do not overlook in next.

CHROME BRUISER (CLM10000) lost cover turning home, rallied gamely and was moving best in the late stages.

Sunday, June 8

TIOGA THUNDER (CLM7500) left, tucked, pulled to the third panel, challenged uncovered, wore down the speed but was nailed by a late closer.

DAWSON CITY (CLM5000) left, tucked, pulled to the half, brushed to the top, gave way in the late stages and should get it done soon.

PANSAI YAMAMOTO  (CLMHCP75/10000) put in a good front-stepping effort only to be nailed by fast closing pocket sitting odds on favorite.

JO PAS ARTIST (CLM10000) left quickly to the top, yielded and was shuffled, saved in the three hole to the lane, tipped out and closed strongly.

Tuesday, June 10

YO CHEYENNE ROCKY (NW7000) took the lead, yielded and was shuffled, had serious traffic in the lane, found a way through and finished strongly between horses but a step or two late.

GUILFOR (CLM10000) got shuffled badly in the final turn, tipped clear and closed strongly.

MATCH PLAY (NW4/3-4YO) lost his chance when he broke at the start, rallied, back, chased uncovered, challenged but weakened by the lane. Beaten favorite need only stay flat to atone.

STEUBEN PATRIOT (NW7000) left, took the lead, yielded and was shuffled, rallied well to miss only by a nose and earns long look in next.
