Streakin' Mohican looks sharp


If he runs to his bullet five-furlong work in 58.80 seconds on May 20, Streakin' Mohican is going to be a tough horse to handle in Saturday's feature race at Northlands Park. Streakin' Mohican brings solid recent form to the six-furlong classified allowance race for 3-year-olds that drew six horses and goes as the eighth race.

Trained by Rod Cone, Streakin' Mohican is coming off a second-place finish to Sense of Humor in a $75,000 optional claimer at Hastings on May 2. He had shipped up from Golden Gate, where he won 3 of his 4 starts there this year. From the looks of his sharp work, he appears to like it at Northlands.

"He went a little too fast for my liking, but he did it well in hand," said Cone. "He strides real well over this track, and I expect him to run a good race on Saturday."

Standing squarely in Streakin' Mohican's way are stakes winners Dixie Chip, Tiny Giant, and Len Again.

Dixie Chip, trained by Dale Saunders, won both of his starts at 2, including the $50,000 Edmonton Juvenile.

Trainer Joan Petrowski won three races with Tiny Giant in 2009. His most impressive performance was a seven-length romp over local 2-year-old champion Cook Kahuna in the Alberta Premiers Futurity.
