Mohawk: Friday 9/13 Analysis


Race 4 - $75,000 Guaranteed Pick Four

Best Bet: BEE A MAGICIAN (2nd)

Spot Play: ROBIN CRUISER (11th)

Race 1

(9) SUDOKU comes out of the O’Sullivan barn and raced very well in the Shes A Great Lady final despite finishing sixth. This is a major class drop. (8) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP has three wins from four starts and comes out of Darling’s barn. She’s a  threat and gets Jamieson. (7) JOKES JET comes out of the McNair barn and should offer a higher price. She’s versatile and is a longshot pick for third.

Race 2 

(4) BEE A MAGICIAN is the queen of this division and is undefeated in 11 starts this season. (2) MOTOWN MUSCLE probably has the quickest gate speed in the field and that will likely be utilized. She draws inside and has yet to miss the board this season. (5) ANGIES LUCKY STAR comes out of Moreau’s barn and has been racing well for most of the season. She made a pair of miscues and will look to get back on her game.

Race 3 

(3) SAMIRA HANOVER went gate-to-wire in her latest in a speedy time. She faces a tougher group, but if she can mind her manners, she’s capable and may provide a price. (4) SEEUINTHESPRING has proven to be a competitive filly in this division despite going winless this season. (5) CHOIR ROBE comes out of the Norman barn and has hit the board in eight of 11 starts this season. She’s a top threat for the triactor.

Race 4 

(2) ANGELS DELIGHT has found her form in recent weeks with a pair of wins. She draws inside and likely will be put into the race once again. (1) LIFETIME JEWEL comes out of the Simcoe and into this class. She draws well and enjoys racing off a helmet. (7) FOX VALLEY BONITA has won three straight including last week for new trainer O’Sullivan. She moves up in class and shows terrific final quarter speed.

Race 5 

(2) BODY BALANCE comes out of the Simcoe and drops in this class. He comes out of the Maxwell barn and should benefit from the class drop. (7) ORDER BY COMMANDER has hit the board in three of his last four starts. He also comes out of the Simcoe and raced well despite finishing sixth. (5) BLAZED moves onto this circuit and raced well in his latest. He comes out of the Antonacci barn, which has been terrific on this circuit all season.

Race 6 

(5) LADY SHADOW hasn’t raced since her Battle Of The Belles win on August 5, which is a concern. She has tasted defeat just once this season and comes from top connections. (11) PORSCHE SEELSTER showed a much improved effort last week and hopefully that continues. She trails from post 11 and should get an inside trip. (9) MEDOLAND LINDEYLOU has won two straight and comes out of Moreau’s barn. She moves up in class, but appears ready for the transition.

Race 7 

(6) LANESIDE LEXUS returns to the Johnson barn and that’s the major reason for my selection. (1) MY GAL MATTIE draws inside, gets major post relief and drops in class. (4) BRUSHSTROKES won two starts ago and gets post relief. She enjoys racing off a helmet and shouldn’t get away too far back in here.

Race 8 

(2) PRECIOUS CAMMILL finally draws inside and drops in class. She won at this level just four starts ago. (4) RUB N TUG has been knocking on the door in this class in her last four starts. She doesn’t like to win, but is a good option for second. (7) BAY GIRL draws better and has a lot of back class to her. She might provide a price and likely will race from behind.

Race 9 

This is a wide-open race, but (6) O U SEXY GUY closed well last week and with a closer trip, he’s a threat in this bottom level. (4) DUKE OF DONEGAL qualified well and enjoys being put in the race. If he minds his manners, I like his chances. (2) PROTEGE SEELSTER draws inside and comes out of Montini’s barn. He’s inconsistent, but is hard to overlook at this level.

Race 10

(2) HOPE FOR PADDY cruised to victory last start and draws inside once again. Maybe that was a turnaround effort last week? (1) LOCAL ART gets the rail and finished second last start at a higher level. She likely won’t offer a price. (4) EAT ME UP won in this class just two starts ago and closes very well. She can be inconsistent, but finishes her miles strong.

Race 11 

(5) ROBIN CRUISER raced well last week and remains at the same level. She’ll need a trip, but has the talent to win at this level and should offer a fair price. (9) DOCS HOPE raced in the Preferred just two starts ago and will have to overcome post nine once again. She’s got a good record this season and shouldn’t get overlooked. (10) D GS TINKERBELL has hit the board in three of her last four starts. She raced in the Preferred last week and comes out of Moreau’s barn.

Race 12 

(6) AMERICAN GRACE has won two straight and comes out of McMaster’s barn, which has been terrific all season. (3) NORVENA SEELSTER draws inside and finished second in this class last week. He closed very well and MacDonald will drive once again. (5) ST LADS ZENA moves into the McCabe barn and has a terrific record this season. She’s versatile and classified nicely.
