Hawthorne Harness: Sunday 7/31 Analysis


Race 7 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (12 - 21 / $61.40): SEEYOUATTHEFINISH (6th)

Spot Play: SUNSET DREAMER (8th)

Race 1

(2) DANDY'S DUDUDIDUDU has some upside in a field full of question marks.  (3) BOOGIE ON DOWN filly has room to improve and should be closer turning for home. (1) SHEADEALER gets the best post for proven connections.

Race 2

(2) PRO SIDE sophomore pacer was super sharp last month.  If the pacer bounces back he can beat this field.  (5) YOUDA SHARK raced poorly over the sloppy track last week.  The pacer had put in two really nice efforts prior.  (8) ALWAYS KENZER should offer a big price and can hit the board with a fast pace to close into.

Race 3

(8) PICKY PICKY VALOR flashed good ability in his debut before a miscue last week.  If the trotter minds his manners he can score at a price.  (7) PHOTO CASH has plenty of room to improve off a good first effort.  (2) LUCY QUAIDER has made breaks in two of three but does have some upside in a wide open race.

Race 4

(7) DINKY DUNE is one of few threats in the race; versatile.  (5) BEST MAN HANOVER the pacer's best effort would soundly beat this group.  (6) UNCLE BUD should offer the best price of the contenders and will look to pick up the pieces late.

Race 5

In a very tough race to gauge, (5) CERTAINLY would need a big turnaround but has flashed good efforts in the past.  (1) CELEBRITY HERCULES is a shell of his former self and looks to offer low value; use caution.  (2) YOUTH GONE WILD is very inconsistent from week to week but looks to be in line for a nice trip up close.

Race 6

(8) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH pacing mare will look to make it eight wins in fifteen starts on the year.  (7) RYLEIGH'S LILLY mare might not be quite right after coming up short in three straight.  (1) FOX VALLEY CHARM threw in a clunker last week but was right with this group the start prior.

Race 7

(5) LETS GO DUNE has just been racing evenly but finds a weak field full of question marks.  The pacer will offer a nice price and gets a good post with options.  (7) KING OF THE SWAMP well bred pacer is 0 for 23 on the year; command a price.  (1) HEARTLAND DESIRE blew up the tote board last week and faces similar.

Race 8

(8) SUNSET DREAMER just needs a good setup for a chance late.  (5) YANKEE BOUNTY has started to come around in the last few months.  The pacer was the driver's choice.  (3) SMOKE RINGS raced really well at Hoosier last start despite the miscue.  The pacer is one of the better closers in the race.

Race 9

(9) BS TYRICHESS has been facing much tougher and owns a win against better on the year.  (2) OUR MISS LILY mare is just now back in racing shape after a layoff.  The pacer has been close in two straight.  (4) PEACELOVEPACE mare will offer a big price and is capable with some racing luck.

Race 10

In a really weak and inconsistent field, (3) TERRORIZE THE MOON is tough to endorse but if the 4-year-old can stay on a helmet he can score at a price.  (6) WILLIWIN faces weaker and keeps the top driver.  (7) H-AND-N LETSRACE mare closed good ground last week from a tough spot and looks to be improving.
