Email

Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: ENVIOUS HANOVER (1st)

Spot Play: MACHIN MONEY (10th)

Race 1 

(6) ENVIOUS HANOVER moves into the Menary barn, has won two straight and looks like the horse to beat. (3) LYONSSWEETIE draws inside, comes out of the Johnson barn and hasn’t missed the board in her last three starts. (5) JEREMEYES JEWEL likely will provide a price even though she raced very well last week. She closed nicely and draws much better.

Race 2 

(1) DOCTOR LILY moves up in class, but she was a convincing winner last week and has won two of her last three starts. She has the speed and draws the rail. (2) SIR WILLIAM was timed in 1:56 1/5 last start and that type of effort makes him very competitive. He also draws well and comes from a good barn. (7) PAZZO LINDY comes out of the Baillargeon barn and has a good record this season. He has terrific gate speed and might offer a fair price.

Race 3

(4) PUTMEINTOGO draws well, has terrific gate speed and is a top candidate in this class. (6) D GS PESQUERO comes out of the Moreau barn and has a terrific record this season. She hasn’t been at her best in recent starts and will look for a turnaround effort. (5) RUSSIAN KISSES won two straight and is capable of making the transition onto this circuit. This is a short field and she enjoys racing off a helmet.

Race 4 

(9) KATHERINE B drops in class and that’s the main reason for my selection. She has the speed and won the last time she was in this class. (4) PUTNAM MACKENZIE comes from a high percentage trainer and is classified accordingly. She draws well and has a good record this season. (7) LALKA finished second in this class last start. She tends to be inconsistent and will need a trip.

Race 5

(9) ORDER BY COMMANDER draws a little better than he has the last two weeks and has terrific gate speed. He gets Jamieson in the bike and the addition of Lasix has seemed to help. (10) BWT TAJ will have to overcome post 10, but comes from a top trainer in Henriksen. He has the speed, but is a concern with the outside. (4) HUNTER VALLEY comes out of the Autumn Series, draws better and enjoys racing off a helmet. He shouldn’t get away too far back and likely will offer a price.

Race 6 

(9) MAKE SOME MEMORIES finished second, by a head, last week from a post 10 start. She draws a little better and likely will draw a lot of attention again this week. (1) MATTJESTIC LIGHT draws inside and raced well last week. That was her first start back after a break and I’m expecting a better effort in here. (7) STONEBRIDGE MYSTIC put in a sub-par effort last week. She doesn’t like to win, but is a good option for the triactor.

Race 7

(5) BAD NIGHT MARE won last week and has a terrific record to start her young career. She comes from a top trainer, gets Jamieson in the bike and is capable of the class jump. (2) ONE LAST BONO finally draws inside and has terrific gate speed. I can see her being put into the race this week and she might offer a fair price. (7) MY VICTORINO won in her latest and now moves up in class. She has a good record this season, is versatile and posted a solid final quarter in her latest.

Race 8 

(1) MOTOR SHARK put in a sub-par effort last week as the favorite. He comes out of Moreau’s barn and is looking for a rebound effort. (6) JUST PLAIN LUCK finished second last week and has the speed for this class. He tends to be inconsistent, but raced well last week after a first-over trip. (8) TYMONTIMEAGAIN hit the board in three of his last four starts. He remains a top candidate for this class and gets Jamieson in the bike.

Race 9 

(3) WHIPLASH finished third in this class last week, but won two starts prior. He draws better and looks like the logical choice in here. (9) ILL BE THERE moves into the Gillis barn after a private purchase. He’s versatile and has been a consistent threat in this class. (1) PROTEGE SEELSTER draws the rail, drops in class and comes out of the Johnson barn.

Race 10 

(7) MACHIN MONEY won last start in a credible mile and now moves up in class. He comes out of the Auciello barn and is capable once again. (2) UMBRAGE HANOVER draws inside and is also fresh off a win. He gets Jamieson in the bike, has terrific gate speed and will likely get a lot of attention. (8) CASIMIR LAWMAN finished a strong second last week for new trainer Pentland. He closed very well and should be even better this week now that he’s on a seven-day rotation.

Race 11 

(1) BETTINO hasn’t missed the board yet in his career and draws the rail. He’ll get a lot of attention and deserves to. (4) ALEXANDER LUKAS draws inside and has been trotting credible miles. He comes out of the Autumn Series and may offer a fair price in this wide-open tilt. (10) WILL TO DO has excellent gate speed and has been racing very consistently in recent starts. He doesn’t like to win, but is a good option for the exactor.

Race 12 

(8) ALLAMERICAN EXTRA looks like the obvious choice in here after winning three straight. He’ll likely be the favorite and should be. (7) DOCS HOSS has been racing very consistently and continues to be a top threat in this class. He has a patented late kick and is a must have for the exactor and triactor. (10) DOING SOME DAMAGE raced well last week from post eight and now will have to overcome post 10. He’s got a good record this season and has early speed.
