Mohawk: Monday 7/28 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: JET AIRWAY (9th)

Spot Play: CAVIART GRIFFIN (5th)


Race 1

(6) CAROUSEL HALL raced in the Canadian Breeders Championships eliminations just two starts ago and finds herself in a much lower class which she's very capable of winning. (4) J MARIE comes from the Ben Baillargeon barn, shows terrific gate-speed and has hit the board in three of her last four starts. (5) NOBLE FLIRT shows the speed, comes from the Charalambos Christoforou barn, which has been very good this season and draws in the middle of the gate.

Race 2

(5) THE WAYFARING MAN was exceptional in his first career start as he finished second in a dead heat, timed in 1:52 4/5. (2) AMORA BEACH draws inside, comes from the Dave Menary barn and finished second last week with The Wayfaring Man in a dead-heat. (3) SOME POWER comes from the Casie Coleman barn, draws well and was a beaten favourite last week in this lone division.

Race 3

(2) DANCIN CAROLL looks like another young star from the first crop sire of Sportswriter as the talented miss has offered quick speed this season although has yet to find the winners circle. (1) CODE ONE HANOVER draws inside and is fresh off a win in the Ontario Sires Stakes Gold division for trainer/owner Jack Darling. (5) SHES A PANSATION has started off her career in fine form for trainer Jeff Gillis as the No Pan Intended filly has yet to miss the board from two starts.

Race 4

(4) RANSOM DEMAND comes from the Brad Maxwell barn and is very capable of winning this class and notch his first career win. (2) HOW TWEET IT IS was timed in 1:52 1/5 two starts back on this circuit and that makes him a prime contender in here. (3) DECISIVE DESTINY hasn't missed the board in each of his four career starts and comes from the Shawn Robinson barn and gets Hall of Famer Steve Condren in the bike.

Race 5

(9) CAVIART GRIFFIN draws outside for a fourth week in a row, but raced very well last week while being parked the entire mile to finish second. (2) HEADSAREGONNA TURN draws inside and is fresh off a win for trainer/co-owner Patrick Sweeney. (10) AMERICAN SUPERMAN comes from the Gregg McNair barn and is capable of overcoming post 10 with his quick gate-speed and recent win on July 21 in 1:58 3/5.

Race 6

(3) P L IMPRESSIVE raced very well in her lone start of her career last week in an Ontario Sires Stakes division here at Mohawk. (9) TALULA SEELSTER was a $28K yearling purchase for trainer Mark Austin and the Camluck miss finished a game second in her first career start last week at Georgian Downs. (10) GET LUCKY might be the post time favourite or close to it when the gates unfold, but asking a two-year-old filly to overcome post 10 in her first career start is asking a lot.

Race 7

(9) SILVERHILL SHADOW has won two straight, comes from the Dr. Ian Moore barn and was a recent winner in the Canadian Breeders Championship against the top sophomore pacers in Ontario. (1) VICTOR BAYAMA draws inside and has yet to miss the board from three starts this season. (5) STEADY WARRIOR perhaps put forth his best effort of the season for trainer/co-owner Wayne McGean with a second-place finish last week, timed in 1:51 1/5.

Race 8

(5) PROTEGE SEELSTER has been a main threat in this class for many weeks and was a winner two starts ago. (3) SAM HAYES has eight wins from 24 starts this season, which shouldn't get overlooked as he raced mostly at Rideau Carleton Raceway. (8) DESIGNER GENES was put on the front last week and didn't fare out well.

Race 9

(9) JET AIRWAY is the horse to beat after finishing fifth in The Meadowlands Pace, timed in 1:47 3/5. (1) HUNCH MAN gets the rail this week for trainer Bob Young and has been racing very well as of late. (8) PLAY IT AGAIN SAM has hit the board in two of his last three starts, comes from the Dr. Ian Moore barn and gets Jody Jamieson in the bike.

Race 10

(7) DOCS HOSS has been the king of this class for many weeks as the son of Cams Eclipse has won four of his last five starts, including two straight coming into this contest. (2) BUDDYS HOPE was a winner in this class last week, draws inside and comes from the Vic Puddy barn. (1) PASSIONATE PETE gets the rail in his favour this week and has hit the board in four of his last five starts.
