The Can-Am 0.20 Pick 4 begins in Race 10 at Woodbine Mohawk Park and as usual the last leg will be held at the Meadowlands in Race 11. If the weather forecast holds true in Milton Ontario and East Rutherford New Jersey both surfaces will be rated fast.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Mohawk Park-Leg 1
2-Tequila Party-McClure's choice over #8 draws inside for only 2nd time this season, looks to be in the hunt.
3-Westbeach-Gets post relief in 4th start off the bench, likes the track and could trip out.
8-Beach Bar-Fired hot off the bench, loses JMac and trainer is listed as the pilot, but I'm thinking that will change.
Race 10-Meadowlands-Leg 2
2-Buen Camino-Has been facing better, post draw should help and shows a 1.53.1 win here last year.
5-Mississippi Storm-Comes off a sick scratch and having a rough year, this is a better spot if ready for a top effort.
7-Di Oggi-ML chalk tries hard, comes off a win for hot barn, will respect but will need a top effort at this class.
Race 11-Mohawk Park-Leg 3
1-Ramblingamblinman-Closes well but needs to be in striking range, regular pilot back, could surprise with a trip.
3-Nickel Bag-Needs best for a picture but last was good after skipping a start, draws well and will look for a price.
6-Humboldt-Takes a big drop and this is the level to shine, major player with a clean trip.
10-Thor De Vie-Steps-up after a sharp score on the engine, barn is hot and not much gate speed inside.
Race 11-Meadowlands-Leg 4
2-Diamondtoothgertie-Barn has won 5 out of 14 last 30 days and McCarthy takes a spin, starts inside of main foes.
6-Traffic Jam-ML chalk comes off a win at this class last week, usually in the mix and can get a good early seat.
8-Rockin The Boys A-Just missed off a rough trip as chalk, steps-up but Tetrick sticks and post makes the price.
10-Kimberlee-Can beat this crew, offers some value at 10-1 in the ML, could leave and get in the mix early.

Race 11 Mohawk) 1,3,6,10
