Hawthorne Harness: Sunday 6/26 Analysis


Race 9 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (7 - 13 / $43.00): DAGGY (11th)

Spot Play: COOL LIKE THAT (9th)

Race 1

(5) OUT DID MYSLEF  3-year-old should show improvement in her third career start.  (7) LACARMELILIANA filly could use a good setup and a smooth trip for her best chance.  (8) WEDDLE BY WEDDLE has been knocking on the door at this level; threat.

Race 2

In a field with mostly first time starters, (3) LADY'S PARTY just missed in the qualifier with a strong late kick.  (1) BEAMER N BUD was wrapped up in the qualifier and gets the best post.   (4) DIAMOND DUNE filly looked to be home free last week in the prep before tiring a bit late.

Race 3

(7) JEWEL MAKER has a very nice pedigree and could offer the best price of the contenders.   (1) BROOKLYNITE well bred 3-year-old gets the best post and was the driver's choice of three in the race.   (6) ROCKNROLL WILDCATS has been close against better on the year and likely needed his last start.

Race 4

In a weak and inconsistent field, (7) WE ROB BANKS pacer has flashed the most ability of the group.  (6) JDS WICKED TWISTER gets sent out for connections with multiple wins at the meet; threat.  (1) WILD SHOT gelding will offer a big price and has room to improve in his third start back off a long layoff.

Race 5

(4) COAL HANOVER has been facing much tougher on the year; driver's choice.  (1) DELIGHT FASHION has been sharp in three straight but does bump up in class.  (3) EXTRAVAGANT ART drops down from the Open, however the pacer doesn't have the best win percentage; use underneath.

Race 6

(6) FOX VALLEY QATAR looks to offer a huge price and is capable with his best effort.  (1) KING MUFASA Illinois champion is not the same horse as he used to be and has lacked stamina late; use caution.   (7) JACKIE GOLDSTEIN owns a recent win at this level; threat.

Race 7

(4) MYSTICAL NECTAR well bred mare has really blossomed for new connections and just missed last week from a very tough spot.  (5) CHAR N MARG was knocked out of the race last week by a breaker.  The filly faces older more seasoned opponents but looks to have a big late kick.  (6)  SEEYOUATTHEFINISH mare loves to race and will fight tooth and nail to hit the wire first; fires early.

Race 8

(2) SUNSET DREAMER pacer doesn't look the best on paper but if the 5-year-old gets a good setup he could score a big upset.  (1) FREEDOMFORMYSOUL put in a super effort last week just missing to a horse who got the perfect trip.  (8) SOMESTARSOMEWHERE pacer comes into the race razor sharp.

Race 9

(10) COOL LIKE THAT will need to find a way into the race but has been very close against much tougher.   (1) MASTER OF DESIRE has raced very poorly in three straight.  If the veteran pacer puts in a good effort he's the horse to beat down in class.  (2) SKYWAY BRENLIN pacer has lots of room to improve second start back off a long layoff.

Race 10

(9) LADY'S ART well bred mare looks to have found the fountain of youth at this track and has been pacing up a storm late.  (3) GRAN GABRIEL beat a slightly better group three back; threat.  (1) LOLLIPOP 4-year-old gets the best post and looks to be in line for a nice ground-saving trip.

Race 11

(8) DAGGY pacer put in a huge effort last week against a much better field.  (1) MR PICKPOCKET doesn't look the best on paper but is capable of a good effort.  (7) WISCONSIN'S BEST put in a good effort last week and can threaten with a similar mile.

Race 12

(9) AUNT ETHEL has room to improve adding second time lasix for proven connections.  (5) CAN'T CATCH KEY is just now back in racing shape and is a huge threat with a smooth trip.  (1) PARKLANE DRAGON pacing mare owns ability and keeps the top driver.
