It's Friday and that usually means another competitive Can-Am Pick 4. The sequence starts at Woodbine Mohawk Park with a scheduled post time of 10:10 EST. Comments and selections below for my $28.80 ticket are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Mohawk Leg 1
5-Machnhope-Likes the track, draws well, drops and should be in the hunt at a square price with a clean trip.
6-Aint Three Ok-Steps up after a .55 last half but can compete here with a good steer by Henry, should be a price.
7-Jan-Nice win on the engine from 10-hole last week, has the gate speed to make same strategy work versus better.
Race 10-Meadowlands Leg 2
1-Crazshana-Makes 2nd consecutive Big M start and gets Dunn, chance to wake-up for 1st win of the year.
3-DW's Revenge-Beaten chalk was used hard early, gets some post relief and could make amends tonight.
5-Life Well Lived-Camera shy this year but drops to lowest level in a while and can snag 2nd win of the year
8-If Not Why Not-Another looking to take a picture, barn is cold but drops into a soft spot and a fast track helps.
Race 11-Mohawk Leg 3
1-Barn One-Makes 4th start off the bench and fits, Wallace barn has been hot, and this is a spot to shine.
6-L Weather B-ML chalk should be a player but not a lock, will use and look to others as well.
9-Family Sports-In good form, makes 1st start for new barn, post makes the price and Drury can work a trip.
10-Brandon Hanover-Not much gate speed inside and that helps this 4-year-old, will respect a bounce back effort.
Race 11-Meadowlands Leg 4
1-Keystone Nikki-Drops, makes 3rd start on Lasix + 3rd start for new barn, should like the company at 15-1 in the ML.
5-Betterthanbrie-Another who drops and has had success at this level, Dunn should be able to work a good trip.
9-Whiskersonkittens-Won last off a jewel of a trip, post makes the price, knows how to win and so does Tetrick.
