Mohawk: Saturday 9/20 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: SHAMBALLA (12th)

Spot Play: COUGAR HALL (4th)


Race 1

(1) DREAM ACT draws the rail and was a going-away winner two back, before self destructing last week. She's appears to be a coin toss. (8) MYSTICAL WISHES might be the favourite when the gates unfold with her terrific record. (4) CHELSEAS CHANCE has been knocking on the door in each of her last four starts and comes from the McIntosh barn.

Race 2

(10) WARRAWEE PROMESSE has won seven of 11 this season, is very versatile and comes from the Henry barn. (4) STONEBRIDGE RICH has been very consistent this season, draws well and is fresh off a win. (8) KREMLIN has hit the board in each of his last two starts and comes from the Moreau camp.

Race 3

(5) TOTALLY RIPPED raced terrific two back in a new career best, before self destructing last week. He'll look to rebound. (6) JACK LITTEN comes from the McNair barn, is fresh off a win and is a proven threat in this class. (9) AVENTURE has been very consistent this season, shows a lot of versatility and has five wins to his credit this season.

Race 4

(4) COUGAR HALL went to the back last week in his return, but draws well this week in his second start back. Perhaps it's 'Go' time. (2) UPFRONT HOOSIERBOY draws inside for trainer Johnson, has back class and is due for a big effort. (1) NICKLE BAG draws the rail, gets Jamieson in the bike and that will influence the price.

Race 5

(5) TORCHES STAR comes from the Wallace barn, draws in the middle of the gate and has won this class in three of his last four starts. (2) LENNY MAC draws inside for Hall of Famer McIntosh and was a recent winner. (8) NORTHERN SECRET may offer a nice price from a post eight start. She's also fresh off a win and comes from the Baillargeon barn.

Race 6

(4) SHADIOS enjoys racing on the front, draws well and comes from the Alagna barn. He'll offer a short price in this contest. (2 SHADOWBRIAND draws inside, comes from the Darling barn and was an open-length winner last week. (3) SHADOW PLACE was a recent gate-to-wire winner for trainer Moreau. He's an obvious candidate in this field.

Race 7

(4) CAMILLE raced very well in her elim, gets Gingras back in the bike and may offer a fair price in this rich final. (3) KRISPY APPLE has scored back-to-back wins, draws inside and enjoys using her gate-speed. (2) YAGONNAKISSMEORNOT has been much better in recent weeks and gets Jamieson in the bike.

Race 8

(2) DANA DEAREST draws inside and has been a top player in this class all season. She comes from the Coleman barn and will offer a short price. (3) BET YA has a good record this season, draws well and will look for a bounce-back effort. (10) MEA LILLEY MARK has terrific gate-speed and is fresh off back-to-back scores.

Race 9

(4) TITUS SEELSTER has won two of his last three, including last week and is in top form right now. (5) REGAL BABE hasn't been worse than second in 12 of 14 starts this season. (1) ATOMIC MILLION AM gets the rail, offers terrific gate-speed and has a winning record this season.

Race 10

(5) HER OWN LAND has been the queen of this division so far this season and appears to be the filly to defeat. (9) SHADOWS WONDER comes from the Moore barn, was a five length winner in her latest and will offer a short price. (3) BORN TO DREAM has been much better as of late. She draws inside and has won back-to-back at the Grassroots level.

Race 11

(4) STATE TREASURER drops out of the Canadian Pacing Derby and into this easier field. (6) PISTON BROKE generally gets away too far back, but draws outside in a short field, which may set up for an off-the-pace rally. (2) DAPPER DUDE is very consistent, draws inside and hasn't been worse than third in each of his last six.

Race 12

(3) SHAMBALLA romped last week by over eight lengths and looks like the horse to beat in here. Expect a short price. (2) COBBLE BEACH draws inside and is fresh off a win. He's capable, gets McNair in the bike and has been racing strong as of late. (4) ALEXIE MATTOSIE has earnings approaching $1 million and is fresh off a win.
