There is a 10-race card set to go at Woodbine Mohawk Park tonight. The 0.20 Pick 4 starts as usual in Race 4. That sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
5-Cross My Mind (4-1)-Camera shy 4-year-old draws well and may catch a jewel of trip in 3rd start back since a sick scratch.
7-Barn One (8-1)-Needs a top effort and a good start. Likes to roll late and might find some live cover. There might be a few leavers and pace could be brisk.
8-Go Rrrilla (2-1)-Winner of 3-straight since being claimed, moves outside but should be bet hard again. Deserves respect, has owned this class lately.
2-Rye N Clyne (10-1)-Took the long way around and took top honors at Flmd. Starts inside and may get sucked around to get a rare win on the big track at a price.
4-Bringhome Theblue (8-1)-Usually is a slow starter but last finish was better than recent tries. Jamieson steers
tonight and that may help chances.
5-EL Wild Spirit (2-1)-Almost has to get a better trip than in last and has burned a lot of money in past two starts. Should be pounded again but looks like a major player.
2-Superlative (8-1)-This mare has had some issues but knows how to win. Taking a swing for a price, should be in the mix from this post if minds manners in a tough race.
3-Odds On Amethyst (4-1)-Fits much better at this level and can win this if Hudon works the right trip.
6-Sortie (2-1)-This is a spot to shine but the breaking problems need to stop. Using and thinking Vanderkamp will keep him trotting.
3-Stelios (7/2)-Makes 4th start for Auciello, draws inside and is still looking for first picture in new barn. Needs a top effort but appears to have the best chance to knock off #6.
6-Julerica (2-1)-Drew off by 7-lengths when dropped to this level. This crew is similar and with a decent trip should score an encore.
Race 4) 5,7,8
Race 5) 2,4,5
Race 6) 2,3,6
Race 7) 3,6
Total Ticket Cost) $10.80 for $0.20
