Woodbine Harness: Thursday 4/10 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: WINDSONG KHLOE (4th)


Race 1

(5) GANGIO recorded a good outing in his seasonal debut last week. He’s versatile and should improve off that effort. (1) MARIO BI draws inside, posted a strong final frame in his qualifier and comes from Henriksen’s barn. He’ll have to mind his manners. (8) WIRE ME CASH qualified well for trainer Auciello, has gate speed and should offer a fair price.

Race 2

(1) SWEET COLT OF MINE draws the rail after finishing a strong second last week. (7) THINKBEFOREUSPEAK has missed the board once from his previous five starts. He’s versatile and paced a strong final quarter last week. (5) CASIMIR MEGASTAR moves into the Johnson barn, which will lower his price. He jumps in class, but hasn’t missed the board in his last five starts.

Race 3

(5) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT drops out of the Preferred and is due for his first win of the season. (8) COLD CERTIFIED hasn’t missed the board yet this season in three starts and continues to improve. (7) OVERANDOVERVICTORY has a patented late kick and has been racing at his best in his last four.

Race 4

(8) WINDSONG KHLOE posted a sharp qualifier in Florida and will make her first start of the season. Coming out of the Jamieson barn will deflate her price. (6) FACE TO FACE was hard-used last week and just missed at this level. She draws better this week and is a prime threat. (10) TYMAL XTRA will have to overcome post 10, but she raced very strong last week despite getting away near the back.

Race 5

(6) THE MUSCLER received an aggressive steer last week from driver/trainer Jones en route to victory. He moves up in class, but shows he’s capable. (7) RAMZAN got the job done last start in the debut of Moreau. He closed very strong to win by open lengths. (5) LAUGHING KING has been much better in his last two for team Baillargeon. His gate speed will likely come into play at a level, where he’s been very competitive.

Race 6

(9) BOKNOWS MOMNGRANNY enters a new barn for the first time in his career. He’s capable of moving one up off the claim. (6) FOREGO THE CIGAR just missed last week and remains at the same level. He has a solid late kick and has hit the board in his last two of three. (8) DOCS HOSS doesn’t like to win this season, but is a good option for the triactor. He has the speed and has finished third in each of his last three starts.

Race 7

(6) HOUSE OF TERROR put forth a strong qualifier after making a miscue in the Youthful series. He drops into a maiden class where he appears ready for his first career win. (8) EINSTEINS BEST closed very well in his qualifier for capable trainer Adams. McNair is in the bike once again for his career debut. (2) FEAR THE MAJOR draws inside and finished third in his latest. He displayed the speed needed last week and showed a much improved effort.

Race 8

(5) REB THE RAIDER was a shut-down winner in his latest in the debut of trainer Bourassa. It was the first time he’s ever been claimed and there’s plenty more left in the tank for this week. (1) SI SEMALU draws the rail and certainly has the speed for this event. He failed to score last week as the even-money choice and will look for a bounce back effort. (3) GOLDSTAR BADLANDS continues to offer a price and has been racing at his best over the past few starts. He draws better this week with McNair back aboard.

Race 9

(1) BAX OF LIFE trotted a strong mile in her first start of the year last week. She gets the rail to her advantage and likely will get a more aggressive steer. (7) COOL GUY will likely be your first leader with his terrific gate speed. He drops out of the Preferred and is a prime contender. (3) SLIP INTO GLIDE draws better than the past few weeks. He’s hit the board in his last three of four and should be better positioned than last start.

Race 10

(10) MATTS DELIVERY hasn’t missed the board since arriving in the Riley barn and will have to overcome post 10. He’s due for his first win of the season. (9) MEDWAY TOWER comes out of the Menary barn and drops in class. (6) KEEPING OPTOMISTIC did all the work on the front last week en route to victory. He moves back onto this circuit and likely will offer a low price.
