Northfield: Wednesday 9/28 Analysis + Pick Four Ticket


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

1,3,4 / 1 / 9 / ALL = $27


Best Bet: PATIENT I D (9th)

Spot Play: DOCTOR CARTER (3rd)

Race 1

(4) KIRKTONS CREDIT seems to do better when on the front end; fires early.  (1) OVERDRIVE five-year-old appears to be on the right track in his third start of the year.  (3) WESTERN DIAL well bred 3-year-old won easily in his season debut.  The pacer is lightly raced and has lots of room to improve.

Race 2

(3) GOING IN GLORY picks back up the top driver against a suspect bunch.  (7) ST ELIAN'S FIRE trotting mare is the best horse in the field but is driven by a low percentage provisional pilot.  (5) MCVICAR four-year-old is 0 for the season but finds a very inconsistent field.

Race 3

(7) DOCTOR CARTER picks up a huge driver change.  The pacer owns the most back class in the field. (5) BIG BOSSMAN has been a new horse for most of the last month.  The pacer tired badly in his last race but was sharp prior.   (4) HANGON MAN paced a huge mile two back before breaking last week.

Race 4

(9) ROCKITVILLE 4-year-old has room to improve in his third career start off a couple of solid efforts.  (5) STAR TREATMENT well bred gelding has shown a decent burst of speed in his last few.  (4) ECHO'S ANNIE filly has lacked stamina late in her last two; use underneath.

Race 5

(1) VELOCITY RAQUEL well bred mare makes her first start for new connections with the best post.  (2) FLIRTATIOUSLY filly has been competitive at this level in the past but needs a smooth trip.  (3) TILLY THE FILLY mare picks up a huge driver change; threat.

Race 6

(9) FLYING MUSCLES was racing in the Open a few back.  The 4-year-old will be tough to keep off the ticket with a trouble-free trip.  (6) SIMMY veteran trotter makes his first start back off a long layoff and owns some ability.  (7) MUCKMUCK WOODCHUCK has been competitive at this level and will offer a big price.

Race 7

(1) MACE HANOVER adds first time lasix with the best post.  The 3-year-old gets sent out second start for a new barn.  (5) TREVOR'S FOLLY freshman pacer faces much softer but could need a start over the track.  (2) BIG NICK should be in a decent spot to save some ground before shaking loose late; use underneath.

Race 8

(3) CACTUS BILLY paced a big mile last week winning easily.  The pacer bumps up in class but could have more to offer.  (1) P L DRAGON blew up the tote board last week with a huge upset.  The 9-year-old also jumps up in class but benefits from the rail.  (4) BURSTING BLAZE will offer a big price and is capable with a good setup.

Race 9

(1) PATIENT I D trotting mare picks up a significant driver change against a weak field.  (4) HELLO CARLO twelve-year-old isn't what he once was, but can trot a decent mile from time to time.  (2) S M'S TERMINATOR has been competitive against similar and will offer a big price.

Race 10

(9) ACTION METRO MAX pacer gets sent out for one of the top barns in the country against a soft bunch.  (1) WINTER CRUISE should be in a decent spot turning for home.  (4) FOX RIVER MARK is very inconsistent from week to week.  If the 8-year-old puts in his best effort he can hit the board.

Race 11

(2) A CROWN FOR LINDY veteran trotter was a game winner first start out for a new barn.  The 10-year-old has made the most money on the year and will look to make it two straight.  (4) SELENA put in a solid qualifier over the track last week; threat.  (1) SKY LAV gets the best post in an inconsistent field.

Race 12

In a field with few contenders, (9) CHAMPION'S CLUB owns wins against much tougher on the year.  The pacer just needs a trouble-free trip from the second tier to cash.  (7) OUR MCLOVIN also takes a significant drop in class for the top driver.  (1) BRYNDAN'S TOY should be much closer turning for home; use underneath.

Race 13

(1) SIR HOWIE'S Z TAM seven-year-old loves to race and gets the best post in an evenly matched field.  (2) JUMP THE SHARK faces easier this week and should be much closer turning for home.  (4) K SLATER picks up the top driver but has just been racing evenly; command a price.

Race 14

(3) COOTER DUNN four-year-old should be good enough against this field with a smooth trip. (7) DARK ROAST is probably the only threat to the top choice but needs to work out a trip from a tough post.  (4) SPIES AN LIES will offer a big price second start out for new connections.

Race 15

(1) ENEE WEENIE AND ME went a very tough trip last week at this level.  The pacer will look to capitalize on a weak field with the best post.  (2) WESTERN MARK owns only one win on the year and is probably best used underneath.  (3) MR TOMMY FRA would need much more to threaten the top choice.
