Woodbine Harness: Horses to watch from Nov. 16 - Nov. 21


Monday, November 16

VITAL SIGN (NW4000) on a night when the leader or pocket horse won most of the races, this old guy roared high, wide and fast through the lane from far back to outfinish both the pacesetter and the pocketed favorite. The :26 3/5 last panel has to be respected.

FLANAGAN MEMORY (PRFHCP) trailed to the lane, tipped, took a few steps to get revved up then unleashed a pacer-like :27 1/5 last quarter picking off foes left and right through the stretch to finish a respectable fourth.

SHIPPEN OUT (NW2) had poor cover to the lane, tipped, hit stride late but earned a look in next.

CAMS TUX (NW3000) was off stride in the first few steps, settled to the rear, raced third over and closed late. Do not ignore.

SAVANNAH SPLENDOR (NW3000) took an early tuck, pulled past the quarter, made a strong move to the lead, set a good clip and proved best. 

Thurday, November 19

ROLLING ROCK (NW1) brushed to the lead, put in a good front-stepping effort but was second best to the favored pocketsitting winner.

FLEET BUMBLEBEE (NW2) made a bold uncovered bid but came up short to the favorite's late rush.

JET BLACK CADILLAC (CLM10000/3YO) brushed coming to the third panel to take the lead, faced pressure, dug in gamely but just missed at 20-1.

MAPPOS MOENHAY (CLMHCP8/10000FM) was only wire to wire winner on the card and can take another.

Friday, November 20

PINKY TUSCADERO (AUTUMN) spent too much time wide in the final turn but closed strongly.

ST LADS GIDGET (AUTUMN) was jammed up badly in the final turn then wiped out by the collision in front of her.

DICKS SECRET (CLMHCP12/15000) he drew off easily on front end and was totally wrapped up through the lane.

MISS COCO LUCK (NW14000FM) finished full of pace from the back of the pack but missed by a head.

BRESCIA SEELSTER (NW3000FM) beaten favorite was pressed twice in front stepping effort, tired but held stubbornly to the last stride.

Saturday, November 21

WIN THE DAY (AUTUMN) was parked the mile, challenged uncovered a long way and tired. Should do better immediately.

ROCKINONBY (NW2) brushed and crushed and was much the best.

CASH FOR GOLD (NW3) ws roughed up early forced to go around a dead horse, cleared, chased the speed, challenged the last three-eighths and tired.

VELOCITY DRIVEN (NW14500) closed well from second over in last and earned a look for next outing.

OUR HOT MAJORETTE (NW2FM) wove through traffic in last finishing in the photo. Do not ignore.
