The feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park is set to go in Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 sequence begins in Race 4, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-Kwicky Kwanzaa-Not my favorite horse but will respect from the rail with McNair in 4th start for the Shepherd barn.
5-Surf Report-Should relish the class drop and looks like a major player.
8-ER Quinn-Another dropper who could get the pocket behind #1 and pop at a square price.
1-LMC Mass Oak-Hung a bit in last but now draws the wood, beaten favorite can make amends.
5-Batting Stats-Comes right back after an easy win, best to respect chances for an encore.
8-Esquire-Finds a better spot versus this group, will take a swing for a price and hope Hudon works a trip.
1-JJ Powerball-Has been handled cautiously off the gate, rallied nicely in last and could be put in play sooner tonight.
2-Ill Be Back-Makes 3rd start on Lasix and this may be "go" time for Auciello and McNair.
5-Mc Pat-Last 3 have been on an off track, looking to see a better effort on a dry surface.
8-Speed To Market-4th start after a private purchase, looking for some gate speed to gain a good seat and then rally late.
5-Odds on Amethyst-Has been far back early versus better, now gets post relief and this could be a drop and pop situation.
6-Magic Night-Makes 4th start for Team Hensley and last was better, looking for the upswing to continue.
8-Bee In Charge-Claimed in last 4, had an easy win at this class on 2-23. Post could be an issue, but best to not overlook.
Race 4) 1,5,8
Race 5) 1,5,8
Race 6) 1,2,5,8
Race 7) 5,6,8
Total Ticket Cost) $21.60 for $0.20
