Hawthorne Harness: Sunday 7/24 Analysis


Race 11 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (11 - 20 / $57.80): GABE HENRY (3rd)

Spot Play: JOYFUL GAME (5th)

Race 1

(1) PIRAEUS freshman filly takes on the boys but looks to have a lot of ability.  (5) FANCY CREEK LINK has been facing slightly tougher and will be closer turning for home.  (3) SEND FOR ME made a decent brush last start and has some upside.

Race 2

(6) IMPRESSIVE ART three-year-old raced huge in the final last week.  The pacer should find the winners circle with a similar effort.  (5) MADD HOSS JACKSON well bred pacer raced gamely last week and could be one of few threats to the top choice.  (4) TRIXSEN GRAM doesn't looks the best on paper but can hit the ticket underneath.

Race 3

(7) GABE HENRY freshman pacer looks to make it three straight and was used multiple times last start.  (9) SLZBURGERSLZBURGER pacer has a nice pedigree and room to improve off a nice win.  (2) FOX VALLEY JETER will probably take heavy tote action but will need more to tangle with the top choice.

Race 4

(2) SPORTY REDHOT pacer looks to be a real good one and has won by open lengths in both of his career starts.  (8) SPIRITED ENCOUNTER raced huge in two straight.  The pacer could be the sleeper in the race at a price.  (3) TINY JIM two-year-old has shown good closing ability in his brief career.  The gelding looks to be in a great spot to save some ground before shaking loose late.

Race 5

(6) JOYFUL GAME pacing mare is the best closer in the race when on her game; threat.  (3) INCREDIBLE FILLY is capable of pacing a big mile and will likely be on the lead or in the pocket.  (4) OUR MISS LILY looks primed for a better effort third start back.

Race 6

(4) ANNAS LUCKY STAR filly gets sent out for a trainer known for having them ready when they hit the track.  The 2-year-old was exceptional in the qualifier.  (2) PHOTO PHRED freshman trotter makes his first start for a proven barn.  (1) MY SPITFIRE K filly gets the best post in a field full of question marks.

Race 7

(8) FOX VALLEY NEMITZ lightly raced pacer put in a huge effort out of the ten hole last week.  (6) UPTOWN SLEAZE has a proven pedigree coming off a big mile.  (3) SULLIVAN pacing colt is better than what he shows and picks up a huge driver change.

Race 8

(5) ANTS INER PANTS mare owns a class edge on the field when right.  (6) MACIE RAE five-year-old trotting mare is a threat if she minds manners.  (1) CERTAINLY gets the best post in a weak and inconsistent field.

Race 9

(6) FOX VALLEY CUPID has a history of coming up short late but should offer good value against a suspect bunch.  (1) POWERFUL PILOT pacer makes his third start back off a layoff and gets the best post.   (5) WONDROUS SPORT has had a disastrous sophomore campaign but might be able to turn it around one of these weeks.

Race 10

(2) RYLEIGH'S LILLY should have had more last week but was tremendous the start prior.  (8) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH mare loves to race and shouldn't be counted out even off the scratch.  (9) FEETONTHEDASHBOARD mare is sharp right now; versatile.

Race 11

(6) SUNSET DREAMER won at this level with a few starts ago and can pick up the pieces with a good setup.  (10) MR COOLIE will look to make it three straight wins at this level.  (9) FIVEKNUCKLESHUFFLE just missed last week showing a good late burst.

Race 12

(2) BNGS EXPRESS was very close against better last week.  The pacer can beat this bunch with a smooth trip.  (8) DINKY DUNE four-year-old has been racing gamely and is a threat down in class.  (3) BEST MAN HANOVER well bred pacer has thrown in two clunkers in a row.  If the pacer is on his game he's the horse to beat.

Race 13

(4) MONTERO BLUE CHIP picks up a huge driver change with a better post.  (7) ROCKIN THE HOUSE has been facing much tougher and has made the most money in the field on the year by far.  (3) UNCLE BUD has been too far back in his last few races.  The pacer should be used aggressively down in class.

Race 14

(10) PRO SIDE might have not liked the off track last week.  The pacer burned cash last week but can rebound at a much better price.  (7) ULYSSES BLUE CHIP has been knocking on the door at this level; threat.  (8) SO BE IT raced poorly last week after two very nice efforts.  If the pacer races back to his previous starts he's a threat.
