Pocono: Horses to watch from May 2 - May 3


Saturday Afternoon, May 2

UPFRONT BILLY (NW7000) prohibitive favorite was much the best and looks like he can do it again.

ROLLIN RING AFIRE (NW3/3-4YO) wired the field easily and should be hard to catch in next race or two.

WALTER WHITE (NW4/3-4YO) took the lead, retook and jogged along easily pulling away for fun. Takter trainee should stay sharp for a long time.

Saturday Evening, May 2

BAKIN ON THE BEACH (NW20000) was nailed on the front end in last but should be along in time to atone soon.

MORTAL COMBAT (CLM10000) brushed and crushed with awesome move in last and should take another.

Sunday, May 3

ONLY IN MY DREAMS (CLM7500) was parked forever, challenged uncovered the middle half and tired. 

STARBUX EDEN (CLM7500) left, tucked, came out to the third panel, went wide and rallied to the lane finishing wide but flattened in the late stages. Beaten favorite can atone with better trip.

LILU HANOVER (PaALLSTARS) broke before the start, settled, raced third over with good finish but can be tough with right trip.

HIGHLAND WESTERN (NW/3-4YOFM) left,tucked, came uncovered and rallied gamely to the wire but the odds-on favorite was too much.

R SAM (NW4500) broke at the start, raced parked past the quarter, tucked, sat in and closed with trot.
