Hawthorne Harness: Saturday 6/18 Analysis


Best Bet (6 - 11 / $38.80): FRISKY BOB (3rd)

Spot Play: SIR MAMMO (8th)

Race 1

(6) GOINDUNESIDE the well bred pacer has been knocking on the door against tougher.  (3) J B'S HERO raced big last week just missing from far back.  (9) RED DOG RYAN lightly raced pacer has room to improve with a good setup.

Race 2

(10) HE GONE JACK might offer decent value from the far outside.  The 3-year-old pacer was sharp last week.  (6) CHLO'S RICHESS  makes his third career start and has flashed some ability; threat.  (2) WE ROB BANKS has not been able to get the job done yet against similar; command a price.

Race 3

(7) FRISKY BOB pacer would have won for fun had he had anywhere to go for most of the stretch last start; big chance.  (6) MIDNIGHT SHARK the most recent effort was much improved.  The pacer has a nice pedigree and might have figured it out.  (1) POCKET PARTY gets the best post but will need more to hit the top spot; use underneath.

Race 4

(7) COOL LIKE THAT should offer a big price and can sweep past late with a good setup.  (3) UNCLE BUD was the driver's choice and finds a slightly softer bunch.  (8) RICKY BOBBIE can jump up with big efforts from time to time.

Race 5

(5) SUMMER SHANDY would have probably been a winner last week but had nowhere to go late.  (7) SIMPLY BURBON has been tremendous in his last three; threat.  (8) RICKY TIDWELL finds a fairly wide open field besides the top choice.

Race 6

(9) COAL HANOVER takes a huge dropdown in class.  The pacer should dominate this field with a trouble-free trip.  (3) BIG MOON RIZING has been sharp for a new barn but could be overmatched by the top choice.  (7) ALWAYS KENZER should offer good value underneath.

Race 7

(2) SLEAZEBURGERNFRIES drops down a notch and picks up a huge driver change.  (3) DOC'S DEAL just missed last week flying late.  (4) FULL MOON RISING was very close at this level last week; threat.

Race 8

(3) SIR MAMMO pacer gets a big morning line and is just as good as anyone in the field when right.  (1) LUCKY CRUSADER despite looking good on paper and a big driver change, the pacer just hasn't been racing well; command a price.  (9) THAT MAN OF MINE is capable of pacing a very fast mile with a good setup.

Race 9

(2) SOMESTARSOMEWHERE raced gamely last week at this level.  The pacer could offer the best price of the contenders.  (9) KOLT POWER had no excuse last start against this same bunch but is still the horse to beat.  (1) FREEDOMFORMYSOUL should find this spot much more to his liking; threat.

Race 10

(9) BNGS EXPRESS takes a huge dropdown in competition.  The pacer gets sent out for a low percentage pilot but that could just boost the price.  (2) PART TIME well bred pacer could be the sleeper in the race with a good setup.  (8) CHIP AGAIN is 0 for the year but does start for a capable barn.

Race 11

In a wide open and evenly matched race, (3) PISTOPACKINPIPER has a big brush when timed right and will offer value.  (2) DELIGHT FAHION finally gets a good starting post and should be much closer turning for home; driver's choice.  (1) ULYSSES BLUE CHIP will look to make it two straight at this level.

Race 12

(6) BET ON HIM burned a lot of cash last week making a miscue.  If the pacer can mind his manners he can beat this bunch.  (2) BOSSA NOVA BABY went a big second quarter last week taking some sting out of him late; threat.  (3) DONALD HIMSELF can hit the ticket underneath at a big price.
