Coming back this evening for the second edition of the Can-Am 0.20 Pick 4. Both Mohawk and the Meadowlands have competitive cards scheduled to start the weekend. The Can-Am sequence begins at Mohawk in Race 10, at about 10:40 EST. The pool was over $50,000 last week and it wouldn't be a shock to see a higher total tonight.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
Race 10-1st Leg-Mohawk
1-Windsongmagnifique-Not in love with last effort, will use again and hope is tighter, now comes back in 7 days.
2-Buttermilk Hanover-Steps-up after a sharp win at FlmD, winner of >$100k in 2018 can compete here.
6-P L Hurricane-Lukewarm ML chalk may blast out and get on the engine. Filion provides a new set of hands.
8-Cousin Mary-Swinging for a price and thinking the 1/2 may go in .56 and change, if so, Mary can roll late.
Race 10-2nd Leg-Meadowlands
2-Slick Artist A-Got the top and didn't last, may look to get sucked around and make one big brush down the lane.
4-Newsday-Slow pace hurt, 55.3 last 1/2 wasn't enough, now D. Miller steers and he should have in striking range.
5-Believe In Me-Has trouble sealing the deal at the Big M, but best to respect honest horse.
8-Dongal Rundlscrk N-Trainer hands lines to Gingras in 2nd Big M start, drops and looking for a big try.
9-Oceania-9/5 ML chalk is a winner of 2 straight, tough to leave out but will need a trip versus this crew.
Race 11-3rd Leg-Mohawk
5-Docs Sausalito-Came 2nd from 9-hole and might be able to step-up the effort for 3rd win in 10 tries this year.
7-Exhilarated-Steps-up after drawing off by 4 3/4 last week, classy mare could stay good and win another.
Race 11-4th Leg-Meadowlands
2-If Not Why Not-Spagnola barn has been hot this month, winner of 4 of 7 at Big M may pop in 1st start off bench.
5-Ataboy Hanover-Makes 4th start off a rest and Dunn takes a seat, looking for a big try.
7-Resita-Makes 4 start for Cullipher and drops to a softer spot, D. Miller takes a spin and best will be tough to beat.
