Comments and selections below for tonight's Can-Am Pick 4 are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Mohawk Park-Leg 1
4-Sunday Afternoon-Fits with these and now draws inside at this class, worth a swing at 10-1 in the ML.
5-Artistic Madision-8-year-old hasn't been the same horse but makes 4th start for Aucielo and last was better.
6-Black Jack Pat-Steps-up after and easy win in 1st start of 2019 and could be up to this challenge too.
7-Witch Dali-Fell just short in season debut but was used hard in 1st quarter, knows how to win and McNair sticks.
Race 10-Meadowlands-Leg 2
3-Pinkman-This guy is camera shy last 2 years, but this is a spot for a suck around trip and he can scoot home.
4-Trolley-Will toss last, is 10 of 19 at the Big M, looking for a square price while trying to beat the ML chalk #5.
6-Cruzado Dela Noche-Another who should fare better here than in last at Phl, could be sitting on a big try.
7-Pappy Go Go-Price shot at 12-1 in ML looks to be worth a play, will need best but tries hard and could blast out.
9-Marion Marauder-Here's the wild card, qualifiers were fine, can take a picture if dialed on high in season debut.
Race 11-Mohawk Park-Leg 3
7-Foot Soldier-Drops and makes 2nd start for hot Gallucci barn, should like the company and is McNair's choice.
8-Phantom Seelster-Having issues and drops, was bet down in last, will need more but will respect chances.
Race 11-Meadowlands-Leg 4
3-Inverse Hanover-Missed a start before last start and finished 2nd, expecting an aggressive steer and big effort.
7-Percy Bluechip-Gingras returns and that should help, like #3 comes right back, expecting a big try.
8-Catch An Ace-Raced big in 2nd start off bench and took a picture at this class, will respect an encore possibility.
