The feature at Mohawk Park rolls in Race 7, a condition trot with a $25,000 purse. The very popular 0.50 Pick 5 starts the action, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Nasty Rumor-Suspect ML chalk is 0-29 but has been passing horses and this is a spot to get an overdue win.
5-Chickie Love-Will respect in 1st start for Shepherd barn after claim, Roy may get an easy lead and find a soft 1/4.
7-Jordies Hope-Should like the company and McClure could find some live cover, this mare knows how to win.
2-On The Sly-Raced well and now steps up but could be up to the challenge from this post.
4-Mystery Bet-8-year-old was in too tough in last 2, back down to level of recent success.
7-Pepe Di Jesolo-Impressive win in last and can repeat, well worth a swing at 9/2 in the ML.
2-Mystical Mission-Found life and trotted a 56.4 last half, needs a trip but should be a decent price.
3-Flying Isa N-11-time winner in 2018 had no chance after broken equipment and gets Roy tonight.
6-Musical Spell-Price shot was used more aggressively on a fast track in last and raced well, will be rolling late.
8-Parkhill Nonstop-ML chalk drops to a spot to shine, should be in the hunt with a good cover flow.
3-Think Again-Has burned a lot of money in last 2 but sheds the 9 & 10 post plus was off 21 days before last start.
4-Prince Giovanni-1st start for Giles after a claim and easy win, Roy steers and look like a player.
5-Lone Wolf Terror-Odds on favorite was used hard early, can makes amends for Drury-Auciello.
5-R U Talkin-Won for fun on 1/10 and should offer a stiffer challenge to #7 than in first career start.
7-Arukidnme Cabbie-Winner of 2 straight has returned to action in a big way, aims for 3rd straight, one to beat.
0.20 Pick 5
