The Can-Am Pick 4 will be rolling at Woodbine Mohawk Park and the Meadowlands this evening. It is a 0.20 wager, the first leg goes in Race 10 at Mohawk and the sequence finishes with the fourth leg in Race 11 at the Big M. My $24 ticket is posted below.
Comments and selections are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Mohawk Park-Leg 1
1-Lady Maya-Sharp win, last 1/2 in 56.2 and now steps-up. No standouts in this bunch, will respect connections.
3-Manhattan Night-In the hunt at the wire in all 4 starts, could be ready for 1st win of 2019 with a good steer.
4-Red River Jane-Filion takes a seat and he might be more aggressive versus a group that can be beat.
7-Lady Driver-Broke in last but will toss, should like the company and can take a picture with a smooth trip.
Race 10-Meadowlands-Leg 2
7-U Need Stones-Too far back in a slow pace in last, missed a start but if ready McCarthy should put in play.
9-Henderson Seelster-Steps-up after beating NW of $9,000L5 on the engine, has the gate speed to try it again.
10-My Lindy Winner-Takes on better but likes the track and if pace is hot should roll late at a square price.
Race 11-Mohawk Park-Leg 3
1-Artistic Madison-1st start in Aucielo barn for 8-year-old, needs a top effort but worth using from rail at a price.
5-This Dragon Rocks-Camera shy but Jamieson returns and should be in the mix, chances go up with a quick pace.
6-Kloof Street-Last was better, at this level will need upswing to continue but can take a picture versus this crew.
7-Circle The Page-Had a big 2018 and showing signs of waking up, could be sitting on a big try at 10-1 in the ML.
8-Alexis Faith-Coleman trainee is class of the field, will use in 2nd start of season but will try to beat from this post.
Race 11-Meadowlands-Leg 4
1-Best Of Jenna-Yonkers invader fits, likes to race close to the lead, will take a swing D. Miller makes most of rail.
5-Taffic Jam-Missed a start before last but has been in the hunt in every Big M race, using instead of ML chalk #7.
