The Monday night feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park rolls in Race 3, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. My focus will be on the Late Pick 4 sequence which begins in Race 7.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
5-Galagher Seelster-Drops from $12k claimers and should be a player if Jamieson works a good trip.
7-Casimir Overdrive-Tossing 1st start after claim, was too far back, could leave here, not much other gate speed.
8-Outlaw Gunpowder-Gets a new pilot, who can grind his way around and pop at a square price.
9-Who Said Not To-Form has been dull but might be a wake-up spot, will use but look to beat the lukewarm favorite.
3-Superlative-Came off the bench with a win, this is a stiffer challenge, but competitive mare should be respected.
4-Dr Spengler-Raced well but was handled carefully, must mind manners but could be dialed up in 3rd start of '19.
6-Kadabra Queen-Rolled home in 55.4 and short field shouldn't hurt chances for another picture.
1-Exemplar-This is a comfortable spot and should be in the hunt if minds manners for Roy-Moreau.
4-Wild And Crazy-Won at this level on 4/29, McNair is back for a spin and he could work a nice trip from this post.
1-Cruise Captain-Has faced tough foes, fits better here, gets post relief, will consider at 10-1, main foes are outside.
9-Priceless Beach-Has fired hot off the bench, it will take a big effort to make it 4 straight but will respect.
10-Quatrain Blue Chip-Coleman trainee comes off a nice try on a sloppy track, post is a challenge but helps price.
Race 7) 5,7,8,9
Race 8) 3,4,6
Race 9) 1,4
Race 10) 1,9,10
Total Ticket Cost) $14.40 for $0.20
