Hawthorne Harness: Saturday 7/9 Analysis


Best Bet (10 - 17 / $52.80): MAKEOUTLIKEAPANDIT (7th)

Spot Play: WILLIWIN (3rd)

Race 1

(5) MADD HOSS JACKSON well bred filly comes off two really nice qualifiers.  (7) THE SMIDGE finished with nice pace in his sophomore debut; threat.  (2) SOUTHERN FLIGHT nice looking 2-year-old has plenty of room to improve off a solid qualifier.

Race 2

(4) EVERGREEN ELITE four-year-old has tons of upside of a romping victory against softer.  (3) SIR ARTHUR D doesn't look the best on paper but could hit the ticket at a price.  (2) RED RED REDNECK looked really good prior to the last effort.

Race 3

(5) WILLIWIN has just been racing evenly but takes a significant drop in class and was the driver's choice.  (8) KRUSTY THE CLOWN has been competitive against much tougher on the year.   (2) WHATCHAMACALLUM gets a good post and should be in line for a nice ground saving trip up close.

Race 4

(7) STRONG PLAYIN KING pacer makes his third start back off a long layoff.  (6) MACHO BURBON should be much closer turning for home.  (9) DUNESIDE SPORT never got into the race last start but had won three straight prior.

Race 5

(2) HOLDONWE'REROLLING drew into the soft division; big chance.   (9) IYQ YQR three-year-old looks to be a major player in the division.  (1) WONDROUS SPORT picks up the top driver with the best post.  The pacer hasn't come back the same this year but could be ready for a better effort.

Race 6

(5) DAN D DUNE is just now back in racing shape and could offer the best price of the contenders.   (1) ROYALE ROSE pacer is sharp right now but it's just an elimination and there is not much reason to go all out this week.  (2) BS TYRRIFIC looks to be in a great spot to save some ground before shaking loose late.

Race 7

(5) MAKEOUTLIKEAPANDIT was tremendous last week setting a lifetime mark.  (2) RASCAL FLATTER has been super impressive for the new barn; threat.   (1) IM SO HANDSOME might be overlooked against this group.  The pacer has been knocking on the door and looks to offer value.

Race 8

(5) IN YOUR EYE sophomore pacer was super in the qualifier showing a big latekick.  (2) SPORTY REDHOT impeccably bred pacer will look to make it two straight.  (4) FOX VALLEY SPARTY was the top driver's choice of three.

Race 9

(5) FOX VALLEY HOSS scored at a price last week and likely has more to offer.  (2) ROYALE BIG GUY flashed a lot of ability despite the break last week.  The pacer gets sent out for proven capable connections.   (3) FOX VALLEY JETER well bred pacer will look to make it two straight wins to kick off the year.

Race 10

(8) GABE HENRY pacer was bet down big and raced accordingly last week in his debut.  The 2-year-old was the drivers choice and looks to be good one.  (5) FOX VALLEY INFERNO  wasn't far off to the top choice last week; threat.  (6) UPTOWN SLEAZE freshman pacer has a nice pedigree but looks to need more.

Race 11

(6) ULYSSES BLUE CHIP well bred pacer picks up the top driver and just needs a good setup for a chance to score.  (2) DIXIE'S BOY is probably the horse to beat but looks to offer low value; use caution.  (5) OFFICIALLY YOURS has been competitive against better on the year; threat.

Race 12

(7) S F LAW pacer makes his first start in a new recently hot barn. (8) DONTGETBYME takes a huge dropdown in class and will be used aggressively.   (9) CAPELO five-year-old stallion has good closing ability and can pick up the pieces with a good setup.
