Woodbine Harness: Saturday 11/15 analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: BUCKEROO (2nd)

Spot Play: REAL ROCKER (11th)

Race 1

(4) CANBEC KINGKAZIMIR faces a much softer group this evening as he gets much needed class relief. (7) BETTOR AGAIN drops in class this week and that's the main reason for my selection. (2) F TWENTY TWO finished second in each of his last two starts in this class, draws inside and comes from a high percentage barn in Sue Gangell.

Race 2

(6) BUCKAROO has a patented late kick in the end of the mile therefore a short field can only benefit him as he races from behind. (7) NIRVANA SEELSTER has been on top form as of late and has been ultra-consistent all season for trainer Bill Budd. (3) REGAL SON has been on top of his game as of late for trainer Don Lindsey.

Race 3

(5) WINDSUN REVENGE is a top threat again this week after capturing last week’s edition for trainer Jeff Durham. (1) RIVETING ROSIE draws the rail in this dash and has put together a solid career while racing in the Ontario Sires Stakes Gold Series. (4) COUSIN EDDIE has quickly made a name for himself on this circuit with his consistency and terrific on-the-board record this season.

Race 4

(5) ARAMBLIN HANOVER has been knocking on the door as of late and it's only a matter of time before he enjoys his third career tally. (1) HIT AND GIGGLE A received some time off and qualified back on Nov. 7 with a good effort in 1:56.1 while finishing third. (9) VERO HANOVER has been racing very well as of late for trainer Bruce Gilkinson.

Race 5

(8) BODY BALANCE has been much better since receiving some time off from trainer Brad Maxwell. (2) KEYSTONE TREVOR continues to offer a high price and hopefully that happens again this week and can look to capitalize. (7) GIRL DRAMA was claimed last week for $12K by trainer Tim Cherwaiko and he'll look for a nice payday in this $20K purse.

Race 6

(4) ALEXAS JACKPOT comes from a high percentage trainer in Marty Fine and the talented gelding drops in class this week after finishing third at a higher level. (5) THEPANINSULAHOTEL is a back-class pacer that can't get overlooked when racing at this level. (1) KG DRAGONATOR will debut for new trainer Ted Macdonnell and the four-year-old begins from the rail at this lower level.

Race 7

(7) DAYLON MAGICIAN is hard not to consider for top honours in here with the class drop as there is no Preferred Trot this week. (6) FEARLESS MAN raced very well last week for trainer/driver Rick Zeron as the talented trotter finished third at the Preferred event at 37-1. (5) SLIP INTO GLIDE comes from the Baillargeon barn and the six-year-old has hit the board in three of his last four starts.

Race 8

(9) D GS PESQUERO will debut for new trainer Corey Johnson this evening and that's an angle I'm using with this talented mare. (5) RADAR CONTACT has earnings nearing $700K in her career and certainly has the speed to offer for this class. (3) SOMEWHEREINHEAVEN went a tough opening quarter last week and that affected her performance down the stretch.

Race 9

(3) DOVUTO HANOVER has been ultra-consistent while racing in this Preferred field and can't get overlooked. (2) DAPPER DUDE has been a steady competitor in this top class all summer and comes from a Hall of Fame trainer in Bob McIntosh. (1) NICKLE BAG lit up the toteboard last week at 18-1 for driver Trevor Henry and trainer Shawn Robinson.

Race 10

(3) CAMAES FELLOW comes from the Carmen Auciello barn and returns to this level of which he was claimed at four starts back. (4) THUNDER STEELER might have the quickest gate-speed in the field and it will be utilized when the gates unfold for driver Doug McNair. (5) SING FOR ME GEORGE has earnings approaching $100K for the season and the gelding raced in the Preferred event just three starts back.

Race 11

(3) REAL ROCKER drew outside last week and went to the back of the field. (1) MACHAL JORDAN continues to offer a low price at this level and can't get overlooked this week. (8) ARTHUR went to the back of the field last week from an outside post and wasn't a factor, but he may be more forwardly placed tonight for driver Jonathan Drury.
