Race 4 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: SHE’S DANGEROUS (10th)

Spot Play: MINESTRE HANOVER (4th)

 

Race 1

(5) CAPTURETHEMEMORY made a miscue last week down the stretch and finished fourth but was placed sixth. (1) BRANDON IRON missed as the favorite last week in this maiden level, but I'll back him this week in the exactor slot and hope for a better effort. (9) O NARUTAC SUPREMO hasn't been in trainer Mark Steacy's hands very long, but made a good account of himself last week with a fourth-place finish.

Race 2

(6) THE SHOW RETURNS is a full sister to Put On A Show ($2.4 million - 1:47 3/5) and was a $180K yearling purchase by the same connections. (7) SHEEZTOUGHENOUGH was a mere $6K yearling purchase for trainer/co-owner David Menary and so far in her career appears worth every penny. (4) CHEEKIE almost got the job done in her most recent start for trainer Carl Jamieson and once again will begin from an inside post this week.

Race 3

(7) MR LOVER is a very lightly-raced youngster that appears to have all kinds of talent based on his performances last season in three starts and his most recent qualifier. (2) AGGRESSIVE finally draws inside this week for trainer Garth Gorden after a trio of outside post positions. (4) MARIO BI made a miscue last week, which is uncharacteristic of the trotting son of Andover Hall.

Race 4

(8) MINESTRE HANOVER comes from the Dean Nixon barn, which is a good angle to use. (4) WHOSURPAPA has hit the board in two of his last three starts and continues to have Doug McNair in the bike. (3) GET AROUND TOWN returns to this circuit and has been pacing credible miles at Georgian Downs in recent weeks for trainer Vern Cochrane.

Race 5

(2) HILL I AM started off his career in perfect fashion from three starts in the early stages of last season then began making breaks, which has continued into this year. (6) ADVERSITY trotted his best effort of his young career last week for trainer/driver Per Henriksen. (8) DAMFOOLRMILLIONAIR hasn't missed the board in four starts this season, shows all kinds of versatility and comes from the Maxwell barn.

Race 6

(7) PAID IN CASH is a perfect one-for-one to begin her career and comes from the Travis Umphrey barn, which has been terrific this season from limited starts. (4) MAJOR HANGOVER entered the Vic Puddy barn last week and finished third, beaten less than two lengths for the win. (2) IMPATIENCE was a $130K yearling purchase two seasons ago and will make her fifth start of the season tonight.

Race 7

(3) SI SEMALU has been a main threat in this class over the past few weeks and comes from high percentage trainer Pat Fletcher. (5) PANEDICTINE was very impressive in his winning effort last start as he won by two lengths in 1:53 2/5 at Hiawatha Horse Park. (6) SUMMONS has terrific gate speed and trainer Mike Lamoureux's barn has been very good this season from limited starts.

Race 8

(4) POCKET TRIP comes from the Kelly Goodwin barn and has been a main threat in this class for many weeks. (2) RAMAS LAST SON hasn't been at his best in recent weeks, but made a miscue two back and competed in the Canadian Breeders Championships last start. (3) MASSACAIA draws inside and is fresh off a win for trainer Richard Moreau. He captured his division by a head and returns to this circuit and will look for a repeat effort.

Race 9

(3) RIGHTINTHEKISSER was developed in Florida by US based trainer Dan Daley before a pair of winning qualifiers at Vernon Downs and shipping into the Mark Steacy care. (1) MARACASSO was just an $8K yearling purchase and comes from the John Williamson barn, which has had success in recent years with younger horses. (6) SANDINISTA was a $15K yearling and comes from top conditioner Dustin Jones.

Race 10

(4) SHES DANGEROUS was a winner two starts back, comes from the Tony Alagna barn and gets Jamieson back in the bike this week. (1) A AND GS DELIGHT has been blessed with the rail and comes from the David Menary barn. (4) J HIGH has paced home in :27 4/5 in three of her last four starts. She appears to be pacing at her best in the latter stages of the mile, but has struggled to be placed in proper position.
