He’s Watching Remains Atop Week 5 on The Road To The Pace

He’s Watching, the undefeated two year old and Dan Patch Award Winner as two year old pacer of the year remains #1 in this week’s edition of The Road To The Meadowlands Pace.  He’s Watching qualified in 1:53.2 at Mohawk last week while appearing well within himself.  He is scheduled to have another qualifier before mapping out his three year old campaign.  JK Endofanera looks like the biggest danger to He’s Watching thus far, winning The Simpson Memorial in his 2014 debut at The Meadowlands in 1:49.4.  JK Endofanera is an imposing physical specimen who seems to tower over his competition in sheer-size.  The horse making up the top-10 remain the same, but Always B Miki jumped up three spots to #7 thanks to back to back wins to start his season.  He is in to go Thursday May 8th at Harrah’s Philadelphia in a non-winners of 5 event.  Allstar Partner fell three spots to #10 following back to back losses to Always B Miki and JK Endofanera to start his season.

Those that are knocking on the door of the top ten are Let’s Drink On It (#11), who qualified extremely well at Hoosier and is in to go Saturday at Hoosier in a non-winners of 5 event, That’s My Opinion (#12), who is sent out by  top connections of last year’s Meadowlands Pace winner Captaintreacherous and looked super-impressive winning a non-winners of 2 event at The Meadowlands in 1:50.3 and Limelight Beach (#13), who finished 2nd in a fast mile (1:51.1) at The Meadows in his first start of the season.  Rounding out the top 20 are Jet Airway (#14), Twin B Speedo (#15), Doo Wop Hanover (#16), Ideal Cowboy (#17), Tellitlikeitis (#18), Dancin Hill (#19) and Some Major Beach (#20).
