Woodbine Mohawk Park has 10-races scheduled for this evening. The feature goes in Race 6, a Preferred Trot with a $26,000 purse. The 0.20 Early Pick 4 starts as usual in Race 4. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-Northern Sultan (7/2)-Two race win streak was snapped in last after cashing a couple of nice checks in previous 2 starts. This post draw won't hurt and shouldn't blush at the company. Chris C's choice over #3 and #5.
3-Jula Shes Magic (3-1)-Finished 2nd in the Harvest Final for the gals. Filion takes the lines has the talent to threaten the colts if minds manners.
4-Magics Wizard (8-1)-Henry can put this horse on the point or in the 2 hole and if so, chances for success go up. Might be overlooked at the windows, has been consistently in the mix and is worth a swing at a solid price.
6-Dreamy Fella (7/2)-Auciello trainee is camera shy, the same as many in this field, but usually is in the hunt. Drury returns and did close well into a slow pace. Needs a trip and may finally get rewarded.
7-Denali Seelster (3-1)-This is a drop and pop situation and if Filion can't get this colt to wake-up it may signal trouble. This is a spot to shine but my gut says to use others as well.
10-Carsons Shadow (10-1)-There isn't much consistency found at this class level. If Jamieson can keep this 4-year old close coming down the lane a picture could happen. Using at a price, held its own versus better and has one nice move.
1-Oney Hall (3-1)-Six race win streak was snapped on 11/30. Started from post 9 in the slop and broke stride down the lane. Now draws the rail and should be in position to start a new winning streak.
6-Perfetto (9/2)-Has put in a couple of flat lines and has the gate speed to get a good early seat. Raced well in last in the slop and is only 1-7 on an off-track. Using just in case #1 isn't dialed on high.
2-Tuapeka Jessie N (6-1)- Raced well in last coming off a sick scratch and missing about 4 weeks. Should be better tonight and Jamieson can work a cozy trip from this post.
6-Mary Kat (3-1)-Three-year-old has been sharp as a tack and has won 7 of 27 in 2020. There's no reason to leave off the ticket.
7-My Baby Girl (4-1)-Rolled down the lane in 55.2 in 2nd race off the bench. That start came from post 10 and should be in better striking range here.
Race 4) 1,3,4
Race 5) 6,7,10
Race 6) 1,6
Race 7) 2,6,7
Total Ticket Cost) $10.80 for $0.20
