Hawthorne Harness: Sunday 7/3 Analysis


Race 11 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool



Race 1

(6) TINY JIM freshman pacer looks primed for a better effort in his second career start.  (4) FOX VALLEY SPARTY just raced evenly last week but faces significantly weaker.  (1) FOX VALLEY FLYNN two-year-old colt gets the best post and also has room to improve with a start under his belt.

Race 2

(5) ROSE GUIDA filly owns a nice-looking win on the year and faces a suspect bunch.  (4) CHOCOLATE HARE swooped the field from way back last start; big chance.  (10) MALIBU SEELSTER well bred 3-year-old needs to find a way into the race and is probably best used underneath.

Race 3

(7) SHEADEALER filly just missed last week against slightly better.  (6) HOPE HOTSPUR the top driver opted elsewhere but the filly has an excellent pedigree.  (9) A REAL DOOZIE looks to have some potential in a very inexperienced field.

Race 4

(1) ALWAYS A ROSE will offer a good price in a field full of question marks.  (3) THE FIRST STAR lightly raced filly was the driver's choice and faces softer.  (9) ALLABOUT THAT RACE pacing filly appears to be improving each week; threat.

Race 5

(1) ROYAL TABS well bred mare looked to be a serious contender as a 2-year-old but hasn't quite panned out since.  The 5-year-old should find this spot much more to her liking.  (10) SARA THE SPY is up against it with the outside post; needs a trip.  (9) KICKINITWITHKOHLER is inconsistent from week to week but can hit the board with a good effort.

Race 6

(5) WEDDLE BY WEDDLE has been knocking on the door in three straight at this level.  (3) AMARETTIGONE two-year-old filly has room to improve in her second career start.  (10) WIMPLE'S DIMPLE flashed some ability but is up against it from the outside; use underneath.

Race 7

(4) ONESPORTONLY owns a win at this level and should be closer turning for home.  (6) FOUR STARZ LOUIE was the top driver's choice of three and should be primed for a big effort third start back off a long layoff.  (3) WHATCHAMACALLUM might be able to shake loose late for a piece with a decent setup.

Race 8

(9) PISTOPACKINPIPER should blitz this field with a trouble-free trip.  (3) MIGHTY HOT SHOT rarely wins but is just now back in racing shape and picks up a huge driver change.  (2) SPORTY GYPSY veteran pacer owns some back class and faces much weaker.

Race 9

(7) FEETONTHEDASHBOARD might have finally got her feet under her facing older this year.  The pacer was tremendous last week.  (6) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH will look to make it six wins in twelve starts on the year; versatile.  (1) RYLEIGH'S LILLY might need one more start off the bench before she's really ready to roll.

Race 10

(8) COLE HEAT pacer has stepped his game up in his last three starts.  The gelding could use a good setup but usually offers value.  (1) FREEDOMFORMYSOUL has been unable to seal the deal in this same spot two weeks in a row.  The 4-year-old was the driver's choice and is capable.  (5) DINKY DUNE four-year-old pacer has been excellent this year; threat.

Race 11

(10) UNCLE BUD drops back down to an advantageous spot; top driver's choice.  (7) LYONS JIMMYDEAN well bred pacer has put in two good efforts in a row.  (6) LIL AL BUNDY set a lifetime mark last out and can make it two straight with a similar effort.

Race 12

(5) ANTS INER PANTS trotting mare has yet to get in going this year, however she can jump up with a big one at a price any week.  (8) MASTER OF EXCUSES was a game winner last week against similar.  (9) JACKIE GOLDSTEIN just missed last start but needs a good setup to hit the top spot.

Race 13

(1) FOX VALLEY AMANDA gets the best post in a weak and inconsistent field.  (3) KESONS AVAIA had some sneaky late pace last week against better; threat.  (6) CARMEN O has burned cash in five straight; command a price.

Race 14

(2) DONALD HIMSELF will look to make it two straight at this level.  The pacer makes his first start for new connections.  (1) BOSSA NOVA BABY pacer has been excellent for a new barn and is the horse to beat.  (5) CAPELO doesn't win often but does own a good burst of speed when timed right.
