Pocono: Horses to watch from Nov. 14 - Nov. 17


Saturday, November 14

STANHOPE (15/20000CLMHCP) was out a long way at 50-1 chased the odds on favorite. Held on well to earn third place and could get lucky with better trip. 

NATIONAL DEBT (NW13500) brushed to the lead past the quarter, drew off in the lane for convincing score.

INTHEPERFECTSTORM (CLMHCP20/25000) followed 3rd over and wide arouind fading horse, closed strong but had too far to come.

HALL BRO (NW4500) was all over the track in very eventful effort last time out and proved second best. Do not ignore this one in next couple of outings.

MAJOR MARCUS (CLMHCP20/25000) was pressed twice in pacesetting effort at 22-1 and tired. Either an easier trip or lesser company could be enough. 

Tuesday, November 17

KIWI PRES (NW3400) beaten favorite came uncovered and rallied gamely but the winner had gotten away. 

OUT OF HABIT (NW1/2-4YO) beaten favorite was rushing up uncovered and seemed like he was going to challenge but the pocket opened up and he tucked. Might have been better served to continue his course.

LAST DRAGON (NW6100) wired the field impressively in variant crushing score and can take another.

SO TAKE THAT (NW3000) even money favorite won going away in last and can take another.

ROCK THREE TIMES (NW300) tucked early, came uncovered and put in a good effort but tired.
