Tonight's Cam-Am Pick 4 starts at Woodbine Mohawk Park in Race 10 and will be followed by Leg 2 at the Meadowlands rolling there in Race 12. It's another competitive sequence and will be my focus.
Tomorrow, the headliner at the Big M is the $650,000 Meadowlands Pace, it is carded as Race 6 and will carry a $650,000 purse. Xpressbet account holders will be eligible for a split of 1 million XB Reward Points if they hit the Late Pick 4 which begins in Race 10. The sequence also has a $50,000 guaranteed pool, so be sure to register.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Leg 1-Mohawk Park
4-Miss Jubilee Hill-10-1 in the ML, if price shot minds manners could catch a gem of a trip and surprise.
8-Magical Winner K-Kadabra colt has speed but needs to mind manners, 2nd time Lasix and is in the mix.
9-All Wrapped up-Beaten chalk raced from the back, should be used more aggressively, also needs to stay flat.
10-Southwind Casha-Winner of 3 straight will be tested from post 10, but this gal keeps trotting and is a threat.
Race 12-Leg 2-Meadowlands
2-Eurobond-Makes 1st start in Julie Miller barn, gets post relief and may have found a spot for 1st picture of 2019.
5-Guaranteed-Also should like the company but needs to mind manners, if so can scoot and has won here.
9-Spectre-Has the gate speed to get a good seat, Harmon barn has been rolling, could win at a square price.
Race 11-Leg 3-Mohawk Park
1-Double A Mint-Drops and from the rail should be forwardly placed for Roy-Moreau, winner in 9 of 21 at Wbsb.
4-Sandbetweenurtoes-Classy mare can come up big, loses McNair but Jamieson knows and he has been hot.
6-Powerful Chris-Betterthancheddar 3-year-old rolled in 1:50.2, will use 2nd chalk versus older off that effort.
Race 13-Leg 4-Meadowlands
3-Rockaholic-Driver change to Dunn and makes 3rd start for a barn that has been going well, using at 10-1 in ML.
5-Good Day Mate-Ginsberg takes a seat and that should help, can pop if in striking range at the top of the lane.
7-Always A Diamond-Returns to the Big M in a better spot for success, Gingras needs to work a trip.
9-Just N Berlander-Looking for 2nd straight at this class, is a player but does need a smooth journey.
