Tonight's Can-Am Pick 4 begins in Race 10 at Woodbine Mohawk Park and appears to be a competitive sequence. Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
Race 10-Leg 1-Mohawk Park
1-Outlaw Imahotvixen-Issue will be the start, if gets off the gate in good shape then figures to be a threat at a square price.
3-Artistic Madison-Faded after setting a brisk pace as chalk, draws well again and fits well here so deserves another chance.
6-Skater Chick-Fast, Sweet Lou 3-year-old is in good form and could catch a trip and beat this bunch.
7-Kloof Street-Drops after being hung to a 53.3 half, which didn't work well. Should get a better trip and this is a soft spot.
Race 12-Leg 2-Meadowlands
4-Papi Rob Hanover-Drew off in qualifier after a 57.4 first half, pace will be quicker, but it's best to not overlook.
7-Tall Dark Stranger-$330k yearling purchase comes off 2 sharp qualifiers, appears to have the speed to win at first asking.
8-Lottery Winner-1b in Johansson barn to #7 maybe, but is no slouch, had a 1.51.4 race time and now makes 3rd start.
Race 11-Leg 3-Mohawk Park
2-Cortez The Killer-Raced well in Wbsb debut, loses Jamieson but should be in the hunt again.
4-Perkins-Came off the bench and raced a big last half for Team McNair, could be even better this evening.
5-Better Up-Coleman program chalk comes off a rough trip and is camera shy, will use but will look to beat in an open affair.
8-Captain Nash-3-year-old from the Jamieson barn has speed but to take a picture from this post, will need a smooth journey.
Race 13-Leg 4-Meadowlands
1-Barimah A-Has been facing tougher in fast miles now drops to a level to shine with Tetrick and the rail.
3-Machiavelli-0-6 at the Big M but has hit the board 4 times, also drops to a picture level and could be ready for a Big M win.
4-Jackamino-Responded with a 54.4 back half to win at this class last time and should be a major player again.
8-Traffic Jam-Barn has been hot, usually does best work at this class, post helps the price and could be sitting on a big try.
