Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: SILVERHILL LUCKY (12th)

Spot Play: JDS CALEB MAN (10th)

 

Race 1

(2) SPIRIT TO WIN appears to be the colt to beat in here after winning his preliminary leg with ease and draws inside in this short field. (5) SOUTHWIND CHAMPAGNE hasn't been worse than second in three career starts and is a logical option for the exactor. He comes from the Bax barn and has excellent gate speed. (4) DRINKSONTHEHOUSE will need to mind his manners, but comes from a top trotting barn and likely will offer a higher price.

Race 2

(8) PAPER BACKED LINDY is fresh off a win in the debut on Lasix, comes from the Henriksen barn and enters this bottom class. (1) LADY DYNAMITE gets the rail and has been racing very consistently this season. He has the speed and gets Drury back in the bike. (2) WINKYS PRIDE draws inside and has a good overall record this season. She has quick gate speed and should be well spotted.

Race 3

(7) YOURE MAJESTIC has won two of four this season, comes from the O'Sullivan barn and likely will offer a low price again in this division. (4) AMOUREUSE HANOVER was a winner two back in this class, draws inside and Smith is very talented with young trotters. She's capable of a bounce-back effort. (2) LADYONE is fresh off a win, moves onto this circuit and likely will offer a price in her fifth career start.

Race 4

(4) MYSTERY GAME comes from the Alagna barn, raced well last week in her first career start and is capable of a better effort. She may offer a price and draws well again. (3) UNRELENTING enjoyed a solid trip last week, drops in class and should provide a better result. (6) HURRICAN TRINA comes from the Jones barn, drops in class and will offer a price. She's a good option for the traictor.

Race 5

(8) BEST RISQUE has been the picture of consistency this season, was a winner three back in this class and continues to offer a fair price. (9) HI MAINTENANCECHIC has won two straight and three of her last four. She moves onto this circuit and is capable of the class jump. (4) ROMANCE IN CAMELOT closed very well last week at a low price from an outside post. She gets post relief tonight and should be able to capitalize.

Race 6

(1) DANIELLE HALL likely will be the favorite when the gates unfold as she's won three of four this season. She gets the rail and comes from the Jamieson camp. (6) STUBBORN BELLE has won two straight, including a Gold division last start. She comes from the Bax barn and will offer a low price. (4) MUSLE BABY DOLL hasn't been worse than second in five career starts and is a must use for the triactor.

Race 7

(9) ARIENNE has been terrific since arriving in the Auciello barn, shows quick gate speed and appears to have the quickest speed in the field. (4) LADYLAND qualified very well two back before a sub-par effort. I'll try him in here and hope for a price. (1) ABBLEFLEXY HANOVER gets the rail, comes from the Blais barn and closed very well in her most recent.

Race 8

(2) ZEUS LIGHTNING gets major class relief, shows quick speed and offers all kinds of back class. (7) MEGO MOSS also drops in class, comes from the Auciello barn and raced in the Preferred just four starts back. (6) NORTHERN VICTORY was a winner in his most recent while using a :26 4/5 final quarter. He has a good record this season and comes from a top barn.

Race 9

(5) JUANITAS FURY has two wins from four starts this season, comes from the Bax barn and retains MacDonell in the bike. (6) BISTROBISTRO TAJ hasn't missed the board in three career starts and has a closing second in last week's Gold division. (3) MYSTICAL BRAT draws inside, comes from the Alagna barn and is fresh off a win.

Race 10

(10) JDS CALEB MAN drops in class and will need to overcome the outside. He has a patented late kick and if he's properly positioned turning for home, he's a top threat. (7) BUDDYS HOPE jumped in class last week following the claim and won in first-over fashion. He's at the same level and will look to repeat. (3) RAVE ON draws inside and has hit the board in three of his last four.

Race 11

(1) UPFRONTLUCKYCAROL draws the rail and Beelby's barn has been excellent this season. This mare drops in class and is overdue for a win. (4) R RAISED EMOTIONS has won two straight since entering the Baillargeon barn and will get a lot of attention in here. (10) DUKESTER is fresh off a win and will need to overcome the outside. He may offer a price and enjoyed racing off a helmet.

Race 12

(5) SILVERHILL LUCKY has won three straight, enters the Moore barn and will offer a low price. (4) HARBOR PLACE draws inside, drops in class and shows the speed required. (9) EASTENDER has hit the board in three of four starts this season and comes from the McNair barn.
