Email

Thursday, April 26

JET WASH (NW2FM) Rallied wide, stormed home and just missed in game effort. Beaten favorite could atone in next with any kind of trip.

BULLET (SWING) Sat in the pocket and cleared too late. Do not overlook in next outing.

THE PLATINUM GUY (CLMHCP12/15000) Closed well from third over in a slow mile. Just had too far to come and should be along in time in near future.

JUSLUKY BOBBI J (CLMHCP10/12000FM) Came wide, hit overdrive and crushed her last victims. Such power has to be respected and she will win again.

SHOW GIRL (NW8000FM) Finished fast from a distant fourth over and nailed second. She should be able to find an extra neck or two in next race or two to get to the winners circle.

MC TAYLOR (NW5000FM) Gobbled up ground with might strides in last coming out of nowhere to nail the win. Speedy miss can hardly be ignored in next effort.

ABBEY ROAD HANOVER (NW3FM) Was stung in the early going getting parked a long way to grab the engine, met pressure the final quarter, dug in but could not last.

COE LEADER (NW2) Hardly worked up a sweat in breaker filled mess last time. Won by an eased up 7 1/2 and will win again.

MYSTICIAN (NW16000) Beaten favorite closed best of all but had too far to come. Can atone in last with better racing luck.

HARD TO MACH (NW3) May have needed the race. Wins next time out from any post.

EIGHTEEN (NW4) Was the victim of a bad shuffle, then made his foes a victim of his impatience by bulling out of a tight spot and wiping out the field. Should be able to get a win in near future.

MIDNITE ROMP (NW16000) Finished gamely between horses with late rush in four horse battle for second and earns a look in next facing similar or lesser.

Monday, April 30

CURIOUS PHEONIX (NW1) Left well, tucked, pulled early, brushed to the top, set a good clip over a tiring track but could not last. Should be tighter in next and a winner in next race or two.

TRIPLE B HERBIE (NW2) Went down the road as far as he could but tired and proved second best in game effort. Do not ignore.

ZUKAVE (NW21000) Had all the worst of it in last. Left and was forced wide in the early going, raced parked behind tiring cover, came wide, brushed to the lead, opened up a big lead, tired and lost it in the shadow of the wire. Any kind of racing luck in next couple of tries should be enough.

THUNDER STEELER (NW1) Raced third over the last half and closed well but had too far to come as the favored front stepping winner refused to come back to the pack despite the tiring track.
