Mohawk: Monday 6/16 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: JET AIRWAY (10th)



Race 1

(4) ZEUS LIGHTNING finally draws inside and likely will offer a low price in here. He's versatile, has all kinds of back class and has hit the board in two of his last three starts. (8) MONEY MAVEN raced very well in his latest and may offer a price like last week. (6) OPEN ALL DOORS has hit the board in two of his last three starts and continues to offer a high price.

Race 2

(1) RG RIPTIDE moves into the Auciello barn, adds lasix and gets the rail. (7) REB THE RAIDER has a good record this season and was a winner two starts back. (8) LOVES A CHALLENGE is winless from 15 starts this season, but has hit the board in three of his last four and continues to offer a high price.

Race 3

(3) DANICA is overdue for her first season win after finishing second in each of her four starts this season, including last week’s SBOA final. (5) MARGIE adds lasix in this contest following a disappointing sixth-place finish in the SBOA final after capturing her elimination. Trainer Ducharme hopes to have corrected her final quarter struggles last week and once again poses as a main threat with a good post and top driver in Filion. (8) I JASMIN was much more impressive in her elimination than her performance in the final last start.

Race 4

(2) SANTANNA BLUE CHIP has been showing 1:51 speed in each of his last two starts, draws inside and drops in class. (1) CLASSIC GENT gets the rail this week along with Waples in the bike and likely will be forwardly placed. (4) FIRE ON THE WATER has the speed and closed well last week at Georgian Downs.

Race 5

(4) MAJESTIC GINGER won last week at this level in her season debut and once again will get a lot of attention from many horseplayers. (5) JUSTCALLMERONALD disappointed last week as the favourite for new trainer O'Sullivan. He cleared to the front and set up soft fractions before coming up empty down the stretch. (3) DAMFOOLRMILLIONAIR comes out of the Maxwell barn and qualified very well on June 10.

Race 6

(6) DOCS HOSS is fresh off a win and has won two of his last three starts. (8) LENNON BLUE CHIP was dropped into a lower claiming level last week and provided a much better effort for trainer Moreau. (2) LITTLE QUICK has been knocking on the door in each of his last three starts and is due for another big effort.

Race 7

(2) MUSCLE BABE has won two of three starts this season, including last week against the provinces' top sophomore filly trotters. (9) SWEETIE HEARTS made a miscue last week in the SBOA final, but prior to that in her elimination she raced very well to finish second. (8) MISS LIV found a new gear last week to close from tenth-to-second for team Baillargeon.

Race 8

(7) SILVERHILL SHADOW previously raced in the North America Cup elimination and his division of the Somebeachsomehwere. (1) TAURANGA gets the rail and has been knocking on the door in each of his last two starts. (9) BUDDHA BLUE CHIP will have to overcome the outside post nine, but this talented son of Art Major has the speed, versatility and top trainer in his corner.

Race 9

(5) RECKON IM READY has raced very competitively since being claimed on May 9 despite not winning. (1) GOTTA SECRET gets the rail, comes out of Moreau's barn and drops in class. (7) MMS LUCKY BOY received a nice trip along the inside en route to a third-place finish in his latest. He remains in this class and proved to have the speed to compete.

Race 10

(4) JET AIRWAY raced well in his North America Cup elimination and faces a much easier class of horses. (2) COBBLE BEACH draws inside and is fresh off a winning effort last week in this class. Prior to that outing he was knocking on the door and finishing his miles very strong. (7) PLAY IT AGAIN SAM just missed last week at this level as he tasted defeat by a head.
