Pocono: Horses to watch from Oct. 17 - Oct. 18


Friday, October 17

DREAMS OF THUNDER (NW4100) returned to the races with convincing win and can take another or two.

NEW ZION (NW4100) chased a strong one with a long uncovered bid and was second best at odds-on.

MCSOCKS (CLM5000) was used and abused in last front end try. Getting hard pressed by two separate foes was too much to ask for this beaten favorite.

MAGNUM KOSMOS (NW4100) set the pace all the way with the favorite stalking in the pocket and was second best by a wide margin.

CHINESE CUISINE (NW7100) was used to the top from post eight, rushed around the oval in quick order giving the fans a thrill at huge odds but reality set in heading home. Won't be 75-1 in next but given the proper field who knows what will happen.

Saturday, October 18

LETS ROCK TOGETHER (NW13500) left, took the lead, got shuffled a bit and jammed up behind a weakening horse, lost his best chance but rallied well and willing once into the lane.

RUSTY SKIPP (CLM15000) put in a game uncovered bid in last to the odds-on favorite and was second best at 7-1.

TAG UP AND GO (NW14000) left to the top, yielded and was shuffled, pulled past the half, raced gamely uncovered but was a nose short at the wire to the tripped out pocketsitting winner.

LYONS JOHNNY (NW11000) closed late from third over and will find a more suitable spot soon.
