Northfield: Saturday $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Analysis


Race 8 – Pace. Non-winners of $400 per start in 2013.

(4) REGIL MILLIONAIRE – Mare can motor off the gate and figures to be put in play early by top driver Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. She also hails from the strong Virgil Morgan, Jr. barn.

(9) SUNRISE SUNSET – She comes off a dull line, but that was in the snow and can be excused. Six-year-old is as fast as any in here and gets an interesting driver switch to Scott Zeron.

(6) MAKE A CALL – Was done in by the eight-hole last week and only needs a smooth trip to be involved.

Race 9 – Pace. Winners of $4,000 or more in last 5 starts.

(4) FIFTYONEFIFTY – She is not the classiest horse in the field, but boy can she fly off the wings of the gate. She’ll take them as far as she can.

(6) MISS ANNIE J – Has been facing some tough fields in the Open ranks at Dover Downs. This gal might not appear to have much form, but don’t underestimate her chances of being able to grind this field down on the outside.

(8) DARENA HANOVER – Arrives for top trainer Ron Burke and is hard to leave off any tickets despite the outside post.

Race 10 – Pace. Non-winners of $400 per start in 2013.

(5) THE SWEET DION – Comes off a convincing victory at this level and has actually won three straight. She is clearly the one to beat.

(3) IT MUST BE MAGIC – Bumps up in class but gets a driver switch from the trainer to Jody Jamieson.

(7) CLASSIC SAKURI – Drops back down and is a must-use on every ticket.

Race 11 – Pace. $126,000 Cleveland Classic – 3-year-olds

(4) WORD POWER – This guy races very well on half-mile tracks and has a very quick step away from the gate. At first look this would appear to be a close-knit race, but I see Word Power on the lead in a hurry and very tough to pass in the late stages.

(5) APPRENTICE HANOVER – He is another with early speed and that could help him secure a pocket trip. Along with (2) TWILIGHT BONFIRE, they should be the major threats.

$1 Pick Four Ticket: 4,6,9 / 4,6,8 / 3,5,7 / 4 = $27
