Hawthorne: Sunday 9/25 Analysis


Race 11 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool


Best Bet: BLISSFUL PANSY  (13th)

Spot Play: MADD HOSS JACKSON (3rd)

Race 1

(1) BC'S DA WINNER filly trotter set a lifetime mark last start winning by open lengths; short price.  (8) POWERFUL FATHER is 0 for the year but showed decent closing ability against better last start.  (7) SPEEDY REDEZVOUS looked to be home free in the consolation last week before tiring badly.

Race 2

(2) MAKE IT WORK will look to make it two straight against a winless field.  (3) DARN SKIPPIE just raced evenly last week but could be in a good position to pass some tired horses late.

Race 3

(9) MADD HOSS JACKSON well bred pacer faltered against better last start but was sharp prior.  (10) SPIRITED ENCOUNTER went a very tough trip last out in the elimination.  The 2-year-old needs to find a way into the race but the line three back would beat this field soundly.  (1) LADY'S PARTY gets the best post in an inconsistent field.

Race 4

(5) EMMIA ROCKET four-year-old is in career form and seems to be getting better every start.  (4) ALWAYS KENZER just missed last week to the top choice; threat.  (3) STRONG PLAYIN KING scored a lifetime best, has been pretty consistent as of late and might offer the best price of the contenders.

Race 5

(5) FANTASTIC ROCK beat a way better field last week by open lengths.  (3) JOSTING JACK should offer value underneath but needs a good setup.  (4) OUTLAWPOCKETROCKET had some pace last week with nowhere to go; use underneath.

Race 6

(1) FOX VALLEY CHARM went a monster mile last start from the toughest post.  If the pacer repeats that effort she can make it two straight.  (4) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH six-year-old mare will be looking to get the jump on the field off the gate.  (7) OK HEAVENLY had struggled against weaker early in the meet but has really come on strong late in the year.

Race 7

In a weak and inconsistent field, (9) WHATDOESTHEFOXSAY has more ability than what he shows on paper.  The 3-year-old will offer a nice price and just needs a decent pace to close into for a chance to hit the ticket.  (8) MYSECRETFISHNSPOT mare shows a solid effort three back against a better field.  (7) AJ'S PRINCE has failed to win a race in sixty-nine career efforts; use underneath.

Race 8

(6) SHEZ A SWIFT mare is capable of putting a nice streak together when going good.  (5) MAKE WAY burned cash last week but can sweep past with a good setup.  (7) ODDS ON DOMINICA scored against weaker last start but needs more to hit the top spot.

Race 9

(1) ANNAS LUCKY STAR is looking to make it seven straight wins to kick off her career.  (6) DAISY LOU DUKE filly can trot a decent mile when she minds her manners.  (7) FOX VALLEY ELLA stayed flat last week and has room to improve; use underneath.

Race 10

(8) PRINCESS SAGE filly is on a roll and will look to stamp herself as the best with a third straight win.  (9) MY KIND OF DANCE will look to turn the tables on the top choice but needs a good setup.  (4) RAZZLEME DAZZLEME raced really well last start from a tough post.

Race 11

(1) GENTLE JANET gets the best post in a wide-open and evenly matched race.  (2) SUMMER PARTY mare was better than this group at one time.  The 7-year-old will offer a big price and could save ground before shaking loose late.  (6) FRISKY BOB is 0 for the year but is capable of hitting the ticket at a price.

Race 12

(2) MONTANA REI has been improving nicely in the last three; threat.  (5) GREEKONA has also been improving racing gamely in her last three.  (1) HSLB MICHELLE filly gets the best post and will offer a better price this week.

Race 13

(1) BLISSFUL PANSY pacer has been on fire for new connections and will look to make it four straight.  (7) NO MORE TERROR pacer has more ability than what it looks like on paper.  If the 5-year-old minds his manners he can hit the ticket.  (4) SAGEBRUSH SAM is inconsistent from week to week but is capable of a good effort.

Race 14

(3) PEACELOVEPACE has been facing much tougher.  The pacer is tough when she makes an early lead.  (1) DESIREE BELLABELLA has shown good closing ability against tougher fields.  (6) JODI GIRL will offer better value this week but needs a smooth trip.
