There's a big card set to roll at Woodbine Mohawk Park this evening. Grand Circuit action returns to Milton Ontario with the Somebeachsomewhere Stakes for 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds will be featured in the Graduate Pace. Not to be ovelooked is Ontario Sires Stake-Gold action for 3-year-old fillies taking place in Race 2, Race 8 and Race 10.
My focus will be on the 0.20 Early Pick 4 sequence which has a $50,000 guaranteed pool.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-Indigo Art-Filion's choice over #10 makes 2nd local start, could benefit from the rail after a tough 8-hole trip in last.
2-Fashiononthebeach-Has faced better and now drops to a spot to shine, should be on the engine or in the pocket.
5-Torrin Hanover-Racing well but McClure needs to find the right route to seal the deal.
10-Yacht Seelster-Has gate speed, Gingras picks up the drive and may provide an aggressive steer.
2-Custom Cantab-David Miller takes a spin and could get a pocket ride behind #4, likes to win and offers some value.
4-Atlanta-7/5 ML choice looks like a cut above if ready, but comes off a sick scratch and is looking for 1st Wbsb win.
6-Run Director-Season debut after a nice qualifier, will respect connections, could be ready to fire off the bench.
5-Captain Ahab-Nice effort in season debut at the Big M, best to respect, raced huge at Mohawk in 2018.
6-Bronx Seelster-Ontario bred is 8 out of 10 in the money here, in the mix in 2nd start of year if Henry works a trip.
8-Stag Part-Coleman trainee likes the track, should be tighter in 2nd start and can win despite the post draw.
1-Lather Up-5 for 5 at Mohawk and is a major player as long as minds manners.
5-Jimmy Freight-Hometown boy draws well, should be dialed on high in 4th start of year and it could be picture time.
0.20 Pick 4
Race 4) 1,2,5,10
Race 5) 2,4,6
Race 6) 5,6,8
Race 7) 1,5
