Woodbine Harness: Thursday 10/24 Analysis


Race 4 - $75,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: MAJOR DANCER (8th)

Spot Play: TAKE MY PICTURE (7th)

Race 1

(6) WONDERLAND SNOW is the only filly in this race that has won before. She’s fresh off that win and should drop even more time on the bigger track. (1) ANDREA LEA gets the rail and comes out of a top trotting barn. If she minds her manners, she’s a good choice. (3) APHRODITY doesn’t have the best gate speed and will need a trip. She got away too far back last time and should be closer this week.

Race 2 

(1) TORCHES STAR gets the rail, is fresh off a win and comes out of Wallace’s barn. (4) BIT A MAGIC comes out of the Grassroots and into this class. She has hit the board in two of her last three starts and draws well. (7) CAPTURETHEMEMORY qualified very well last week. She’s lightly raced, but shows she has the speed and comes out of Henriksen’s barn.

Race 3 

(7) KATHERINE B won in this event last week and did all the work on the front end. (6) LUCKY TARYN has been racing very consistently despite not winning in recent starts and is very versatile. (1) NO TEASING ME gets the rail and won in impressive form last start. She has a good record this year and looks like she’s capable of stepping up.

Race 4 

(6) WITCH DALI put in a good effort last start despite being placed. That was a Gold division and this class is much easier. (5) HARE TO ETERNITY comes out of the Cass barn and has the speed for this group. She draws in the middle and can also be versatile. (3) THERESE KILLEAN comes out of the McNair barn, draws inside and may provide a price. She’ll need a trip, but has that 1:54 speed needed for this event.

Race 5

(7) TYMAL VIVA has been knocking on the door in recent starts and comes out of McNair’s barn. She’s versatile and gets McNair in the bike. (4) SEAWIND PASCALE has finished fifth in eight starts this season and draws inside. She made a miscue last start and will look for a rebound effort. (1) PRETTY BOY adds Lasix and gets the rail. He closed very well last start and should benefit from an inside trip.

Race 6 

(1) GREYSTONE MOE was too far back last start and had to settle for fourth. He was the post time favorite and is the horse to beat once again. (5) FEEL THE BLUES was parked every step last start and will look for a cleaner trip. He comes out of O’Sullivan’s barn and draws better. (4) DHARMA INITIATIVE raced well last start with a good final frame. He should be closer to the pace this week and hopefully provide a better result.

Race 7 

(4) TAKE MY PICTURE comes out of the Preferred level and into this class. He has a good record this season and should enjoy the class drop. (7) WHISKEY TAX also drops in class and closed very well last start. He has the speed and class in his favor. (1) WINDSONG GEANT gets the rail and is fresh off a win. He’s a classy veteran and is rounding into form late in the season.

Race 8 

(3) MAJOR DANCER qualified very well and comes out of the Coleman barn. He won both qualifiers and likely will drop multiple seconds. (8) FRESH LOOK comes out of Alagna’s barn and has missed the board once from four starts this season. He’s a logical option for the exactor. (7) JOLTS PRAYER moves into the Moreau barn and that’s the main reason for my selection. His price will only decrease; versatile.

Race 9 

(5) SLIP INTO GLIDE gets major class relief and draws well in here. He won at this level the last time he was in this class and will once again get a lot of attention. (7) ROCKYS FIRST is certainly rounding into form. He’s won two straight and done so on the front end. (3) COLD CERTIFIED raced well last week considering he got away ninth. He draws better in here and should be closer to the front.

Race 10 

(8) NOBLE JILLY is fresh off a victory and has been racing very well in recent starts. This is a fairly wide open tilt and she looks like the best. (5) BRESCIA SEELSTER hasn’t been worse than second in each of her last four starts. She draws well and likely will be near the front. (1) VILLAGE JESSICA gets the rail and comes out of Auciello’s barn. She has the speed, but will need a trip.

Race 11 

(5) FOUR STACES qualified well, comes out of Coleman’s barn and looks ready to win at first asking. (1) CONFLICT DIAMOND gets the rail and has won two straight. He’s lightly raced and likely will be close to the front. (8) SIR MACHALOT has posted a pair of terrific final quarters and certainly has the speed. If he’s not too far back, he’s a top threat.

Race 12 

(4) DOCS HOSS won in this class last start. He was closer to the front and that should happen once again with this good post. (6) HOBOKEN HANOVER comes out of the Shepherd barn and has posted terrific final quarters. He has a good record this season and will draw a lot of attention. (8) LOST IN PANSLATION has hit the board in each of his recent starts.
