Mohawk: Friday 6/13 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: EINSTEINS BEST (1st)

Spot Play: JENNA CASIMIR (7th)


Race 1

(2) EINSTEINS BEST has won four straight and has scored convincing wins in each outing. (4) REGAL BABE has finished second in four of five career appearances, draws well once again and is a top candidate for the exactor. (5) IM DRINKIN DOUBLES hasn't missed the board in each of his four starts this season and continues to pose as a threat for top honours.

Race 2

(2) REQUEST FOR PAROLE has posted back-to-back solid performances in her two starts back following a layoff. (7) ST LADS PEEPER has proven to be a top candidate at this level in the past. Last week she got away too far back and closed with a :26 2/5 final frame. (3) PRAIRIE ILLUSION might offer a fair price in here and I was really impressed with her effort last start.

Race 3

(3) A REAL COMMITMENT has won two straight in this class, draws inside and looks like the mare to defeat. (1) ADAYMER SEELSTER enters the Bosnjak barn this week following a runner-up finish last week in this class. (7) DEAR ARYSS doesn't like to win as her one for 15 record suggests, but she's a top candidate for the triactor.

Race 4

(4) HUNCH MAN certainly looks like the horse to beat after his latest 1:50 1/5 winning performance on May 26. (3) WARP FACTOR THREE draws inside, comes out of O'Sullivan's barn and has been racing at his best in his last two. (6) MITTCENT VAN GOGH has been knocking on the door in recent weeks with three straight second-place finishes.

Race 5

(1) MARCO DE VIE put forth a terrific performance to finish third in his division of the Somebeachsomewhere. The two horses ahead of him in that split are racing for $1 million this Saturday in the North America Cup. (7) PRINCE CLYDE was at his best last week to get the job done in gate-to-wire fashion. (3) RATHER SWELL is due for a big effort one of these nights.

Race 6

(8) MAJOR STARLIGHT is fresh off a win in a new career best for trainer Tomlinson. (9) SVADIFARI is hard not to like after his terrific performance on June 5 in a gritty victory. (7) HIGH FLIER made the transition onto this circuit last week in good form. He impressed me with his 1:53 4/5 final clocking following his 1:58 victory over at Flamboro.

Race 7

(2) JENNA CASIMIR hasn't been on form in her last number of starts and I'm hoping this is a turnaround performance for her. (1) BAROCKEY draws the rail and has the quickest gate speed of her nine rivals. (8) HAT TRICK HONEY returned last week following a layoff and was assigned with an outside post and was non-effective.

Race 8

(6) JIGGLE IT provided a terrific result in his first career start despite not hitting the board. (7) OPENING LINE is overdue for his first win of the season. He's faced speedy miles this season and once again is a top threat in here. (4) SENTOSA ISLAND moves into the O'Sullivan barn, draws inside and shows the speed over The Meadowlands in recent starts this season.

Race 9

(4) SOME MAJOR BEACH banked over $138K last season while racing in the Breeders Crown & Metro Pace. (8) CLUSTER HANOVER comes out of the Darling barn, has a terrific record this season and is very capable of hitting the exactor. (2) VEGAS RICH draws inside, is fresh off a win and once again will need to be at his best.

Race 10

(6) NIRVANA SEELSTER put forth his best effort of the season last week to finish third. He was charted 12 lengths back at the half and used a :26 3/5 final frame to finish third, beaten a length. (2) REGAL SON draws inside and has hit the board in six of nine starts this season. (7) MEGATRON won two of four starts last season as a rookie and qualified very well in both attempts to start the season.

Race 11

(6) ALIBI SEELSTER hasn't missed the board in five starts this season, draws well in a short field and won at a higher level three starts back. (7) RAVISHNMASTERPIECE draws outside in this short field and is fresh off a victory. (5) WILDCAT BEAUTY has been knocking on the door in each of her last two starts with terrific final quarter speed.

Race 12

(4) ANDREIOS KARDIA draws a great post to work with in this contest and has a terrific patented late kick in the mile. (6) HOPE FOR BADLANDS is certainly a main threat at this level following his terrific performances this season. (9) RURAL ART has been racing very well in both starts this season for trainer/driver Mayotte.
