Hawthorne: Sunday 9/4 Analysis


Race 8 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (18 - 31 / $89.80): SHEZ SO SASSY (9th)

Spot Play: LADY’S ART (7th)

Race 1

(6) RED HOT ART dominated a similar bunch last week and will look to make it three straight.  (4) BROOKLYNITE is probably the only threat to the top choice.  (5) EVERGREEN ELITE is the morning line favorite, but is not in the other choice's class as of yet; use underneath.

Race 2

(8) MISSISSIPPI RABBIT is a lightly raced pacer that has room to improve in his fourth career start with a big driver change.  (7) STRAIT RATE went a nice effort for his first start on the big track; threat.   (3) DADDY LET ME DRIVE showed some improvement last week pacing a personal best.

Race 3

(3) DP ANGEL is having a tough year but is way down in class.  (4) THE REAL TONE has been competitive against tougher on the year and picks up a huge driver change.   (6) CARMEN O is probably best used underneath while facing tougher.

Race 4

(3) SNEACRET HANOVER is a pacing bred trotter that was sharp in the qualifier and looks to offer value.  (5) HONESTLY has yet to win in 12 starts.  Well bred 3-year-old filly finds a weak bunch to do some damage.  (1) LITTLE MISS MOUSE faces older but looks to have some ability.

Race 5

(5) WAUKEGAN gets sent out for a hot barn off a huge effort, just missing at this level.  (6) POCKET PARTY has just been racing evenly as of late but owns closing ability with a good setup.  (7) JETHRO picks up a big driver change off a nice effort.

Race 6

(5) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH just missed against the same bunch last week while racing gamely.  (7) FEETONTHEDASHBOARD has proven herself against this bunch and will offer good value.  (6) YOUNG AMERICAN scored off a perfect trip last week, exploding late.

Race 7

(4) LADY'S ART needs a good setup but can fly late in the right scenario.  (6) PHYLLIS JEAN faces older, more seasoned opponents, but looks to have a lot of talent.  (5) OUR MISS LILY will look to drop and pop for capable connections.

Race 8

(4) BEST MAN HANOVER has been facing much tougher at Hoosier.  If the pacer is on his game he can dominate this bunch.  (7) SIR MAMMO isn't always consistent but is one of a few threats in the race.  (8) MONTERO BLUE CHIP has been very sharp as of late; driver's choice.

Race 9

(2) SHEZ SO SASSY has made the most money in the field on the year.  The trotting mare looks to offer a good price and should be in line for a great trip.  (1) IT'SASWAN was the driver's choice after picking up the best starting post.  (5) HEY MARCEL put in a really nice effort last week after being shuffled; threat.

Race 10

(5) MIGHTY HOT SHOT doesn't win often but should find this spot much easier.   (8) GOTTA GO ANDY gets sent out for a hot barn against a suspect field.   (10) MAJOR ED set a lifetime mark a few starts ago but would need another turnaround.

Race 11

(5) TERRORIZE THE MOON has set two life marks in two races.  The pacer bumps up slightly but could have more to offer.  (7) TWINKLE LIKE A STAR will offer a big price and can hit the ticket with a good setup.  (6) JERRICO is well bred and taking a big drop down in class; threat.
