Sharp Horses and Track Trends: Meadowlands, Jan. 23-29



1/28: 4w, no bias

1/27: 0w, ++ closers

1/26: 1w, ++ closers, wet track



GOTTASEEABOUTAGIRL – Had dull cover third over, rallied wide and finished gamely for the place

HALFPIPE – Trotter had excess dull cover and finished willingly from a tough spot

MANDOLIN HANOVER – Left from post 9, lost cover at the quarter and remained first over, held okay in an improved effort at 84-1

LOOK ANNIE HALL – Left from the rail and parked a horse to the quarter, yielded and was shuffled out of contention behind a tiring 159-1 shot

ARIANE HANOVER – 4th over behind a weak flow of cover, rallied wide on the final bend and finished fast

HANKS KID – Was parked the mile without cover pushing a quick pace and excusably tired

TAKEMEWITHYOU – Left and was aggressively driven 3 wide to clear the lead past the quarter, wired the field nicely, much improved for the Burke barn

JIMMY WHIZBANG – Brushed to the lead at the half, paced a quick middle-half taking on some pressure and held okay; may be set for an off-the-pace try if he draws a decent post

SCOTTY MACH N – Left from post 8 and was parked to the lead in :26, set a fast pace, had the lead turning for home but excusably tired; price factor in exotics off that speed tightener
