Hawthorne Harness: Saturday 1/23 Analysis


Best Bet (1 - 4 / $3.40): PREEMPTIVE BID (4th)

Spot Play: JONES BEACH (5th)

Race 1

(9) MICRO FORCE gets sent out for a hot barn and will offer a big price.  (1) BIG FOOTED BUTCH has flashed the most ability but has some question marks coming into the race off a layoff.  (2) JETHRO gelding should be sharper in his third career start after some learning miles.

Race 2

In a tough race to gauge, (1) IGETAGOODFEELING raced well from a tough post last out and looks to be in line for a much better trip.  (5) PEACE LOVE PACE faces tougher and looks to offer low value; command a price.  (2) THE REAL TONE gets sent out for one of the top barns in the country but didn't show much signs of life last week; use caution.

Race 3

(1) MAKE IT WORK veteran pacer is as game as they come and if close late can find a way to win.  (9) B R FLYING DALI has been sharp despite getting picked off late last week.  (7) MAJOR WAY comes into the race off an easy victory; threat.

Race 4

(5) PREEMPTIVE BID was in too stout last start but should be much better in this spot; driver's choice.   (8) REX PASSUS has burned cash in two straight at this level but has been competitive against tougher.  (4) GRAVELSINMYTRAVEL picks up a good driver change and just missed from a tough spot in this class.

Race 5

(1) JONES BEACH has now gone two big efforts in a row.  The pacer was the driver's choice and is dangerous with an easy early lead.  (8) ONTARIO SUCCESS will look to make it three straight open wins; short price.  (7) LONEWOLF CURRIER pacer has been knocking on the door but gets a negative driver change; use underneath.

Race 6

(1) RUNINTHRUDABRIDLE drops back in for a tag in a much easier spot.  (2) TEQUILA BABE mare  probably needed her last start off a month and has room to improve.  (10) G'S HIGH SHOOTER earned a nice victory last out but needs a good setup with the tough post.

Race 7

(3) A COOL CARD takes a significant drop in class; versatile.  (9) SOMESTARSOMEWHERE looks to offer good value and can pick up the pieces in the right scenario.  (1) ICE SCRAPER will be blazing away early as always, but has not had much late fight in recent starts; command a price.

Race 8

(6) MYSTICAL WALTER six-year-old gelding was really sharp last week and faces weaker.  (5) OLD MAN RIVER was in over his head last race but is also finds an easier spot to do some damage.  (7) MAJOR BLUE COAT takes the biggest drop of all and could be ready for a better effort.

Race 9

(7) ROCKIN THE HOUSE gets sent out for capable connections down in class.  (6) SOME HEART THROB has just been racing evenly but can hit the ticket with a good setup.  (5) BOOGIE NIGHTS was sharp the start prior before coming up empty last week; use underneath.

Race 10

(6) A STITCH IN TIME was closing with authority late last week against a better bunch.  (7) SUNSET DREAMER is not to be taking lightly as the pacer keeps blossoming with age.  (2) COMPANY MAN will be racing on the lead or in the pocket most likely; threat.
