Woodbine Harness: Friday 12/13 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: AMERICHI (8th)


Race 1

(8) FLEET SENSATION will likely offer a price, but he has a lot of back class and is classified accordingly. He comes from a high percentage trainer and is versatile. (5) WESTERN SENATOR hasn't been at his best in recent starts and will look for a turnaround effort. He draws well and comes out of a hot barn. (6) RAVE ON finally draws better and has the speed for this class. He'll likely offer a price and is capable with a trip.

Race 2

(7) KATLA comes out of the Moreau barn and has been trotting credible miles. She's winless from 18 starts this year and maybe this is her week. (4) OCEAN MIST BEAUTY draws well and has hit the board in three of her last four starts. She gets Jamieson back in the bike and will likely be put into the race. (1) GEORGE S P draws inside and hit the board in this class last week. He enjoys being put in the race and has been racing very consistently.

Race 3

(5) WEST SIDE STORY exploded off cover last week en route to victory. He draws well again and will likely be the favorite despite the class jump. (2) POPEDA draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and is fresh off an Autumn Series win. (7) TALBOTCREEK JEWELY raced tremendous last week considering she was 52-1. She starts from the same post and will provide a high price again.

Race 4

(1) DREAMFAIR ECLIPSE gets the rail and raced very well last week to finish third. She finished up with a lot of pace and gets post relief. (4) MACHET ROCKET won at this level just three starts ago and is reunited with Filion. She's versatile and a good option to consider at this bottom level. (2) EMBASSY SEELSTER draws inside and gets major class relief. She also gets post relief and comes from a top percentage trainer.

Race 5

(8) FORK raced very well in his latest considering he made multiple breaks two starts back. He'll get a lot of attention and has been racing at his best in recent starts. (6) CHIEVOUS COLE has won two straight and three of his last four. He draws well and gets Christoforou back in the bike. (5) WHATA DONATO has a terrific record this season and an obvious option for the triactor. She has the speed and comes from top connections.

Race 6

(1) AVATARTIST draws inside and will look for his fifth straight win. He enjoys being put on the front and gets the rail. (3) ALEXAS JACKPOT was too far back in the Autumn final and had to settle for second. That was a terrific final quarter he put forth and that sets him up well in here. (7) HES A SENSATION is back on a seven-day rotation and should be stronger in here. He has a good record and has the speed for this series.

Race 7

(7) JENNA CASIMIR has won two straight and remains at the same level. She's been aggressively driven and the same tactics may be used again. (8) ADAYMER SEELSTER drops in class after finishing third at a higher level last week. She's hit the board in four of her last five. (5) MEMUMSNOTNICE comes out of the Johnson barn and has hit the board in each of her last three starts. She's a good option for the triactor.

Race 8

(1) AMERICHI draws inside and has a terrific record this season. He's versatile, gets Jamieson in the bike and looks like the horse to beat. (6) J C ONTHEBEACH won in the debut for Vrablic last week. She made a number of equipment changes on him and it certainly paid off. (8) YUCATAN won last week and has a good record this season. He closed very well and gets Waples back in the bike.

Race 9

(8) CAVIART MANDY has been knocking on the door in recent weeks and is back in for a claiming price. She has a good closing kick and if she's not too far back, she may provide an upset. (7) PART TIME LADY was ultra-impressive last week considering it was her first start back after some time off. She has a good record this season and comes from a high percentage trainer. (9) JUST BREATHE has been racing well at Pocono and now moves onto this circuit. She gets Filion in the bike and has gate speed.

Race 10

(3) ADDISON BAY has won two straight, comes out of Menary's barn and draws inside. (2) MARLEE B has been very consistent in her last number of starts and is very versatile. She draws well and closed very well last week to finish second. (5) JAN IT JACKSON has terrific gate speed and is a top filly in this class. She has a good record and has proven to be a threat at this level.

Race 11

(5) HAT TRICK HONEY draws well and gets significant class relief. She was timed in 1:51 4/5 last start and that should be quick enough to win. (2) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE also drops in class and draws inside. She has a terrific closing kick and shouldn't get away too far back. (7) BAROCKEY has terrific gate speed and comes out of the Auciello barn.
