Mohawk: Tuesday 6/24 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: MUSCLE MATTERS (5th)

Spot Play: PLEASE OKAY (3rd)


Race 1

(1) QUADROPHENIA gets the rail, comes out of the Menary barn and has won two of three career starts. (4) LOVE DETECTIVE closed very well in her latest and gets a much better post position to work with. (8) CAROUSEL HALL has hit the board in six of seven starts this season, is versatile and is a good triactor option.

Race 2

(4) DOCS HOSS has been at his best in recent outings with three wins in his last four starts in this class. (7) LITTLE QUICK has been much better recently and has a patented late kick. He's very capable at this level. (6) WESTERN SENATOR showed a much improved effort last week with a good final quarter. He has the speed and some back class to offer.

Race 3

(10) PLEASE OKAY will have to overcome post 10, but has won four of six this season, including two straight. (4) DIAMONDS FOR LIFE won last week in gate-to-wire fashion and comes from the Steacy barn. (8) LENNY MAC has hit the board in two of her last three starts, is versatile and just missed last start.

Race 4

(10) RG RIPTIDE added lasix last week in the debut for Auciello, which proved to be a difference maker. He's winless from 18 starts this season and is due for a win. (2) FIRE ON THE WATER has been terrific since his return this season, draws inside and put forth a speedy mile last week. (6) CANBEC KINGKAZIMIR comes from the Puddy barn and showed a much improved effort in his latest.

Race 5

(7) MUSCLE MATTERS banked $218K last year, posted two credible qualifiers and looks like the colt to beat. (11) JITTERBUG is fresh off a win by open lengths and has been in top form. (8) TYRONE HAJI comes from Hall of Famer McIntosh, won a Gold event two back and should offer a price.

Race 6

(4) DAMFOOLRMILLIONAIR draws well, raced very well in his season debut last week and likely will be the favourite in here. (2) APHRODITY draws inside, comes out of the Gold Series and won two starts back. (1) CANBEC KADENCE draws inside and should offer a price. She'll need an inside trip and is capable of hitting the triactor.

Race 7

(1) NAKED CITY moves into the Robinson barn, which will drop his price and gets the rail. (6) OK GLADIATOR was a game second last week in a speedy effort. He draws well once again, is versatile and comes from the McNair barn. (4) SHADOW PLACE raced very well last season as a rookie and has posted two solid qualifying efforts in his return.

Race 8

(9) BURNIN MONEY drops out of the Preferred and faces a much easier bunch. (3) FORK split between horses last to finish second with more trot to offer. (5) SMARTY PANTS won last week in a speedy time for trainer Moreau and is capable of the class jump.

Race 9

(8) SEE THE WIND finished fourth in the Goodtimes Trot, continues to improve and comes from the Beaver barn. (6) ENTRANCED will look to get his game face back on following a miscue in his latest. He has the speed, draws well and will get a lot of attention in here. (9) O NARUTAC PERFETTO won in gate-to-wire fashion last start in a Gold event and is a logical option for the triactor.

Race 10

(5) REGAL BABE hasn't won yet this season, but has finished second in five of six starts. He's due! (2) HUNCH MAN was the talk of the tote board last week, but put in a sub-par effort while drifting out eight-wide at the finish. Expect a few equipment changes to him. (8) TITUS SEELSTER banked $40K last year as a rookie, won his latest qualifier and appears ready in his sophomore debut.
