Pocono: Horses to watch from Oct. 24 - Oct. 28


Saturday, October 24

MR MASSIMO (CLM10000) set his own clip and won for fun in last leaving a strong indication he can do it again.

MY LOVE BI (NW17500) closed strong coming wide off poor cover on a night when speed was holding well and has to be considered.

EXPLODENT (CLM12500) beaten favorite was used uncovered pressing the second favorite the last half and can have better luck if on the lead.

RING WARRIOR (CLM11000) finished powerfully to nail it in the photo and has to be respected.

Tuesday, October 27

CAJOLE HANOVER (NW3000) was used in a long move to the lead but set his own pace and was much the best.

ELYSIUM LINDY (NW3/2-4YO) yielded, retook, put the first challenger in the pocket past the half, then battled the prohibitive favorite and tired. Can find own field to dominate soon.

SPECIAL TERROR (NW6000) was early to move to the lead, faced two staunch challengers. Battled the middle half, put that one away, battled the last quarter and held that one at bay. Gameness, toughness and determination are super traits and not just in horses.

SOULSHOT (NW1/2-4YO) put in a game uncovered bid challenging the favorite but was second best.

Wednesday, October 28

THE FILLY PRINCESS (NW13500FM) closed strong and just missed over a sloppy track made for the overwhelming number of front-steppers who won that evening.

MARTINIQUE (NW5/2-4YOFM) beaten favorite pulled the pocket and challenged the pacesetting second favorite but could not get there. Should atone in next outing.

BUFFALINO HANOVER (NW8500) put in a long uncovered bid against the prohibitively favored pacesetter in last and will not be 12-1 in next.

SINGLE ME (NW3/2-4YOFM) won as easily as a 10 cent on the dollar favorite is supposed to win in last.

BITTERSWEET DREAMS (NW6000M) sat pocket to the favorite and was second best at every call.
