Woodbine Mohawk Park has a competitive 10-race card set to roll this evening. The feature is carded as Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a $25,000 purse. The 0.20 Pick 5 sequence starts the action and has a $50,000 guaranteed pool. It's followed in Race 4 by the Early 0.20 Pick 4 with a $50,000 guaranteed pool. The Late 0.20 Pick 4 sequence begins in Race 7 and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track
3-Levy Taylore-Been good since joining Johnson, didn't have enough in last but did chase a well-meant winner, #6.
6-Crocadile Canyon-Claimed by Moreau after a sharp win last week, will string along with new connections.
1-B Yoyo-8-hole compromised chances in last, will respect connections but needs to avoid a very slow start.
5-P L Jill-Zoomed home with a 54.4 2nd half, mare looks like a major player and can take another picture tonight.
1-O Narutac Perfetto-Respecting ML chalk at this class, slow starter has been camera shy, a quick half would help.
5-Head Turning Jag-Has been racing well and now faces easier, should be tough to beat.
6-Odds On Amethyst-Slow start hurt chances in last versus better, looking for a bounce back at a square price.
1-Mt Sterling Mafia-Doesn't win much but at this class from the rail versus a soft group, best to use.
2-BS Tyrrific-Looking for a wake-up call at 12-1, gets class relief and Henry can keep in the hunt versus this crew.
4-Lisvinnie-Not close to the same horse as last year. Taking a swing, drops and makes third start for Johnson.
5-Shadow of Lindy-1-24 at Wbsb brings pause, but drops to a soft spot, makes 4 start for Montini and back in 8-days.
Race 7) 3,6/
Race 8) 1,5
Race 9) 1,5,6
Race 10) 1,2,4,5
