Pocono: Horses to watch from Nov. 3 - Nov. 4


Tuesday, November 3

MAGIC MAKER (NW5/2-4YO) went wide in the final turn, loomed large heading home and closed well but was nipped on the wire by the flying finish of the huge closing winner.

HOPE FOR BADLANDS (NW3000) was strong uncovered to win going away by widening margin at nearly 40-1 and will be tough to deny in next.

SILVERHILL VOLO (NW6000) well used favorite was parked the mile, grinded uncovered, challenged the last three-eighths and dug in gamely. Guts, determination and ability to overcome the trip.

CODE BON (NW3/2-4YO) well trained prohibitive favorite won last for fun and will be tough for a while.

SPICE IT UP LINDY (NW3000) was another prohibitive favorite that won for fun in last and also will be banging it out for a while.

Wednesday, November 4

VIMY RIDGE (CLMHCP75/10000) set the pace on own and drew off with every step the last quarter.

CHARISMA HANOVER (NW13000M) tucked, sat in, closed well inside and should find a field to her liking soon.

CANTABS FORTUNE (NW13000) followed wide, closed well but had far to come.

PERSUASIVE HANOVER (NW17500FM) was sitting pretty in the pocket, pulled, challenged and tired. Sitting pretty wasn't enough?

MCACE OF ARTS (CLM10000M) mare set the pace, crushed field in variant buster and should take another.
