Woodbine Harness: Horses to watch from Mar. 20 - Mar. 23


Friday, March 20

BADLANDS LOVE (CLMHCP15/20000FM) tucked an early pocket, got a mild shuffle when the lead changed, closed gamely but was outkicked by the fleet-footed winner.

PEPPERMINT PATTI (NW2FM) got stucked behind a fading foe in the final turn, tipped out, rallied steadily but had too much traffic to clear to give her best shot.

P L HURRICANE (NW2FM) pounced from the pocket, took the lead and opened up big lead but tired in the late stages. Should be tighter for next race or two.

ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE (NW16500FM) got shuffled behind a tired pocket horse in the final turn, had pace in the lane but had to navigate in tight quarters.

Saturday, March 21

STOMPIN TOM CREEK (NW7500) left to the top, yielded, retook, set a good clip, tried to get away opening up a few but tired and was nailed by the determined pocket-sitting favorite.

CHEYENNE REIDER (CLMHCP20/30000) finished full of pace from impossible spot charging through stretch traffic in last and earns a look in next.

CHARLIE IS A JOKER (NW235000) was locked in the pocket to the late stages, finished with willing trot once free but it was too late.

KISS ME OR NOT (NW3FM) was uncovered and challenging when she lost momentum heading home with the breaking leader came out into her. Beaten favorite deserves another chance. 

WINDSONG GEANT (NW9800) was in the pocket heading home, rallied gamely losing to the favorite in the last step. The rest of the field was too far back so this one was second best on the board and on the track.

THE REV (NW12000) finished with a huge rally coming through traffic after trailing throughout.

Monday, March 23

YUCATAN (NW2000) finished full of pace from an impossible spot to get up for second at 27-1 in most recent try.

TYMAL COLOSSUS (CLMHCP12/15000) was parked uncovered, used hard in long challenge an tired. Beaten favorite will get back on track.

COVERT OPERATIVE (NW2) chased the favorite in long uncovered rally and was second best on the track and the board.

LOST IN PANSLATION (CLMHCP8/10000) sat pocket, pulled to the third panel, pounced on the tiring leader and trounced the field by a widening margin at the wire.

SPORTS IMAGE (NW1) broke before the start, righted quickly, found a tuck, tipped in the final turn third over and finished with good pace. Beaten favorite can atone with better racing luck.
