Hawthorne Harness: Sunday 6/19 Analysis


Race 7 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: BIG EXPENSE (2nd)

Spot Play: SKYWAY BRENLIN (7th)

Race 1

(6) CRUIZE COMMANDER pacer finds a really weak bunch; short price.  (7) MAKE IT WORK veteran pacer is better than he shows and could be one of few threats to the top choice.  (4) R DUNESHINE looks to be in line for a much easier trip with a big driver change.

Race 2

(6) BIG EXPENSE looks to offer the better price of the contenders; fires early.  (5) KING MUFASA looks to be in line for a nice pocket trip making him dangerous late.  (4) MASTER OF EXCUSES six-year-old looks primed for another good effort third start back.

Race 3

(7) I SEE SUCCESS made up a lot of ground against better field last start.  (6) FAT AND POE flashed some ability last year as a 2-year-old.  (4) MEKKA was the driver's choice coming off a decent qualifier.

Race 4

(3) IMA SKYDANCER kicked home nicely in the qualifier and gets a nice starting post with options.  (6) VITALITY showed some fight last start just tiring a bit late.  (7) JDS WICKED TWISTER doesn't look the best on paper but gets sent out for connections with some nice recent winners at the track.

Race 5

In a wide open and evenly matched race of first time starters, (2) RAZZLE DAZZLEME has two solid qualifiers under his belt.  (6) AMARETTIGONE flashed a good late kick in the qualifier and picks up the top driver.  (5) SAN ANTONIO ROSE was the driver's choice of three; threat.

Race 6

(1) RASCAL FLATTER will be tough to beat with any effort like his last three.  (6) HOLY MCMOSES is three for his last one hundred; command a price.  (3) JO JO SPUR has had two poor performances in a row but finds a really suspect bunch.

Race 7

(4) SKYWAY BRENLIN pacer makes his first start off a long layoff but was super in the qualifier.  (8) CAPELO was the top driver's choice coming a big win at this level.  (5) IM SO HANDSOME drops down in competition; threat.

Race 8

(3) KICKINITWITHKOHLER finally gets an inside starting post and looks to offer a big price.  (4) LITTLE MS CHRISSY former 2-year-old IL champ is the horse to beat but has a low percentage pilot.  (7) HALL PASS HELEN trotting mare gets sent out for capable connections.

Race 9

(9) DUNESIDE SPORT sophomore pacer has been tremendous in his last two.  (5) SOUPBEANS ERNIE pacer should have room to improve third start back.  (1) SAGEBRUSH SONNY should have had more last week against weaker; use underneath.

Race 10

(7) ROCKNROLL CRYSTAL raced much better second start back last week.  The 4-year-old mare finds a really weak field.  (8) BEACH SAND has just been racing evenly but drops down a notch; threat.  (2) STEPH'S PLACE mare has also been facing tougher and looks to be in line for a nice ground saving trip up close.
