Woodbine Harness: Saturday 3/8 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: WEST SIDE STORY (3rd)

Spot Play: MR BIG HEAD (11th)

Race 1

(6) O U SEXY GUY drops in class after putting forth a strong third in a higher level last week. (8) ANOTHER AMARETTO hasn't been right since moving into the Johnson barn. He'll need a turnaround effort. (5) SANTO DOMINGO draws well and has back class to him. He's trip-oriented and gets Moiseyev in the bike.

Race 2

(6) WAZZUP WAZZUP has been racing very consistently this season, drops down in class and is due for a win. (3) TOP GEAR draws inside, usually offers high odds and has hit the board in three of his last four. (1) MYSTICIAN has $1.8 million worth of back class. He's blessed with the rail and comes from the Gillis stable.

Race 3

(1) WEST SIDE STORY is clearly the horse to beat after two wins and the rail to work with. (5) MOONTAN has been knocking on the door and is capable of the class jump. (6) ORDER BY COMMANDER has missed the board once this season, is versatile and retains Jamieson in the bike.

Race 4

(5) THE REV dropped multiple seconds from his qualifier and raced terrific last start to finish second. He can only be better this week. (1) KG DRAGONATOR hasn't missed the board this season from seven starts, draws the rail and moves up in class. (6) BILBO HANOVER has the speed, versatility and a hot barn in his favour.

Race 5

(4) ILL BE THERE drops in class, comes out of Auciello's barn and closed very well last week. (2) NORTHERN SPARK draws inside and will look for a better effort than last week. His back class should show up in here. (3) HOUSE OF CASH draws inside and closed very well to finish third last start. Post relief should help him early.

Race 6

(2) TWIN B LEGEND drops in class after finishing fourth at a high level last week. (1) BROCKS FORTUNE gets the rail, drops in class and will look to get back to form, which we saw last season. (3) BURNING SHORE draws inside and qualified very strong with a good final frame. It appears he's ready to step up his game even more.

Race 7

(3) THORN IN YOUR SIDE draws well, comes out of Auciello's barn and drops in class. (1) CHEYENNE FORD gets the rail, is fresh off a win and enjoys being put into the race. (6) STONEBRIDGE ON ICE has a lot of back class to him. He's hit the board two of his last three starts and may offer a price.

Race 8

(1) BWT TAJ gets the rail, is fresh off a victory and is very capable of the class jump. (3) THE ONLY ONE also draws well, is lightly raced and continues to drop time. (10) TURBO DONATO has the speed and will need to overcome post 10. He's a logical option for the triactor.

Race 9

(2) CASIMIR JITTERBUG drops down in class again and should be able to handle this group. (8) IDEAL RACE has a classy veteran who also drops in class and comes from a top barn. (7) CHAMPAGNE PHIL has won two straight, jumps in class and retains Jamieson in the bike.

Race 10

(6) GENESEE is a logical choice for this class. His record this season speaks for itself and is classified accordingly once again. (9) BLENDED WHISKEY won last week and remains at the same level. He hasn't missed the board this season and will offer a low price. (8) I SCOOT SAM drops into a claimer after hitting the board in his last three starts.

Race 11

(3) MR BIG HEAD has been racing at his best and enters the Tackoor barn. He shifts into a condition event and may offer a price. (2) ROCK ME AMASTREOS draws inside and qualified very strong with a :26 1/5 final frame. (6) SUNNY BEACH DAY gets major class relief, draws in the middle of the gate and enjoys racing off a helmet.
