Woodbine Harness: Horses To Watch for May 10 - May 14


Thursday, May 10

UNRED HANOVER (NW1FM) Flashed quick late speed to win going away in last and should be able to step up and take another.

MIA SEELSTER (NW2FM) Always a threat, she was nailed at the wire in last by the favorite. She will continue to be a factor.

TWIN B SENSATION (NW2) Made a costly break at the start in last. Made a bold move to the third panel, rallied wide and entered contention but tired.

SURVIVAL GUIDE (CLMHCP12/15000) Scored impressively in last. After being used wide tot eh lead, he set a steady clip, held well over a course that was favoring late closers. Can beat better with right trip.

Friday, May 11

OKLEA TYSON (NW2) Quarter moved, rushed up, challenged but could not go by. Got parked for life, pushed the pace forever and paid the price. Would have been hard to beat if he made the top over the stubborn pacesetter.

KATYS JET (NW3FM) This beaten favorite got caught behind a wall of horses through the lane and never had a chance to show her best. 

CLASSIC ALANA (CLMHCP20/30000) Tucked early, gapped some, hit overdrive coming to the half, rushed up, challenged and closed all out. Used little energy in the early going and seemed to have enough left at the end to be a threat in next.

HURTIN ALBERTAN (CLMHCP15/20000) Tucked early, saved to the five-eighths, tipped, rushed up, swung wide and charged home fast. Will be hard to deny facing similar.

Saturday, May 12

GOSHEN SEELSTER (NW3) Got locked in the pocket through the stretch. Had enough to make a bid but never cleared.

LONESOME ATTACK (NW4) Sat on the rail, had the urge to go but racing room was at a premium, took up twice and never had a chance.

SILVER EAGLE (NW4) Was wiped out by a breaker and lost any chance but came back well finishing with solid speed. Beaten co-favorite can atone with any kind of racing lucky.

BAX OF LIFE (NW4) Was parked to the lead, yielded, sat pocket in blanket finish but never found room. Definitely would have been a late factor and 6th place finish is misleading.

Monday, May 14

BEACH BUFF (NW2) Left, took a brief pocket tuck but wasn't comfortable, pulled, went to the top in quick order, met stern pressure, dug in game but the odds-on favorite was too much.

MACHAL ANGELO (OntS3YO) Closed strongly from the back of the pack and was a game second. Should find way to winners circle soon.

MARINER SEELSTER (OntS3YO) Sat in a tight pocket box through the lane and never had a chance to rally. Seemed more than willing to make presence felt.

THINKING OUT LOUD (NW3) Brushed and crushed and continues to impress. Should take at least one more.
