MEET STATS: 0 - 0 / $0.00


Spot Play: BRUSHSTROKES (7th)

Race 1

(1) WINDSUN KENDA has faced some pretty good competition the past couple of weeks in the NW4 class and may find these a bit easier. She may improve here, too as she took her mark at Mohawk last year. (6) SHADYS M THREE is another that likes Mohawk as she took her only win there in 2014. She had good late speed in her qualifier and could hit the board at a price. (3) LARJON LAURA faced some tough ones last week and made little impact. She should go better here.

Race 2

(2) TAROT and (1) MAGIC MADNESS both had uncharacteristic miscues in the slop last week. They look the two best in here with the edge to the former. (4) SOUTHWIND ALICE beat a decent field two back at Woodbine then stalled a bit at London. She can threaten here.

Race 3

(2) A REAL COMMITMENT had good late speed last time vs. one who races in the F & M Preferred tonight. She has done very well in Nixon's barn and could return to her winning ways here. (5) ST LADS PENNY LANE dusted a weaker field last week and is right on top of her game the past 3 weeks; the main danger. (7) MACHET ROCKET almost lasted at a huge price and likely tries similar tactics here; for a share.

Race 4

(9) KEYSTONE DALTON has been racing well for weeks out of town and fits this class well for high % trainer Dowling. He could go right down the road vs. these. (2) BEACHSIDE BUNGALOW took big action at the windows then stopped at the 3/4. He should be better tonight back in a week. (10) CAPELO has been the most popular horse on the grounds at the claiming box with good reason. He brings it every week and is a threat even from the 10-hole here.

Race 5

(2) REGIL HURRICANE looked home free but was nailed very late last week by an impressive debutante. She appears to have few rivals here to worry about here. (5) WICKED SPEED looks like the next logical contender based on last year's record and company. Trainer Young typically sends them ready first time out. (3) HAPPY ENDING GAL showed speed to the stretch last week which is likely a sign of improving form. She should share here.

Race 6

(2) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS takes a class plunge and should have this field at his mercy; top call and Best Bet. (8) THE ONLY ONE has been racing well and fits this class nicely. Look for him late. (6) ROAD SENSE is a great horse to use for 3rd and 4th in your exotics.

Race 7

(9) BRUSHTROKES was passively driven last week; now gets to drop again and should be a big threat even from out there; top call. (10) ADDISON BAY didn't live up to the wagering action she took last week but it really wasn't a bad effort now she drops again, too. She's dangerous. (4) WILDCAT HANNA may have not liked the slop last week and could bounce back here in her 3rd start off the shelf.

Race 8

(9) ILLSEEUINCOURT gets Lasix here for Moreau and likely gets back on track with a top effort. (2) HIE BENNY has been very consistent in this class and the inside post is a bonus for him; using. (1) ABC MUSCLES BOY just missed in a claimer against one who has been racing very well. He is a contender here.

Race 9

(6) KIKISKISSINKOUSIN wired most of these last week and might get a perfect pocket trip here if (8) ONE LAST BONO leaves hard as is her custom. They look the main two protagonists here. (7) JET HOT STUFF closed well last time but couldn't get close to the winner. She is usually an exotics player.

Race 10

(6) PUTMEINTOGO  has done well in the top class the past two weeks and looks like the dominant speed in here; top billing. (4) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE was the one that put pressure on the choice and softened her up but she has been very consistent the past month and can take this with a better trip. (7) MARLEE B loves Mohawk and makes her seasonal debut here. Don't be shocked if she knocks them all off first time out.

Race 11

(1) YOUR MY SECRET has been lights out the past 3 weeks but is sure to get tested here vs. much better. She may be this good. (2) RIDE AWAY SHARK took a mark of 1:53 here last year as a rookie; she is the obvious danger. (7) MAKE WAY was driven differently last week and scored at a price. Expect Zeron to be winding this one up from the back turning home; for a share. (3) PINOT GRIGIO went from 1st to 5th in a race where the back 1/2 was 4 seconds quicker than the first one. She can get a good piece of this. (5) PEPPERMINT PATTI showed some gameness late last week and is a good one for the bottom rungs of your vertical wagers.
