Woodbine Mohawk Park has a 10-race card set for tonight. The 0.20 Pick 5 with a $100,000 guaranteed pool kicks off the action. The 0.20 Late Pick 4 begins in Race 7 and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Spittin Chicklets (9/2)-Hasn't raced since 10-19-20 but has qualified 4 times since, twice recently. Has hit the board 2 times in 8 starts at Wbsb and did face stakes company. Should be in the hunt and could break its maiden in 12th try.
9-Shes A Comedian (3-1)-Hoosier invader appears to be much faster than the rest but this is a 3-year-old filly making its 2nd lifetime start. Looks like a must use and this race consists of an interesting group.
2-Alwaysyourway (7/2)-Beat the $12k claimers back in April at Wbsb and has been racing on the East coast without much success. But has been racing, that should help and could get sucked around with this post draw.
4-Jaydens Place (3-1)-Another making its 1st start for a new barn, this time it's the Moreau-Filion connection. Will respect chances of being ready for a big try.
6-Mister Goodro (15-1)-Was claimed for $8k before the break and now makes the 1st start for Puddy and his usual pilot Henry. Won his last by 6 lengths and will take a swing at this price in a race without a standout.
5-Julerica (3-1)-Raced well before the break and will take a swing the connections have this veteran ready to fire hot off the bench. Winner in 13 of 43 starts at Wbsb could offer a fair price. McClure steers and he knows well.
6-Legion Seelster (5/2)-Makes 1st start for the Puddy barn after being claimed for $30k on 3-27. Henry has some choices with this post. Handy 5-year-old could get on the point but if not, should still be racing near the top of the stack.
3-Cold Freeze (7/2)-Fits with this crew and should be in the hunt. If Jamieson finds some liver cover and the fractions are honest it could be picture time.
4-Twin B Sunkissed (3-1)-Had a miscue in the last qualifier and is only 1-11 lifetime and 0-9 here but this is a soft spot for her 2021 debut. Was competitive in 2020 facing some of the best 2-year-old fillies at Wbsb and JMac should be able to work an efficient trip with this post draw.
9-Sweet Pink (6-1)-Bettors Delight 3-year-old filly is another who should like the company. Has some decent gate speed so Drury should be able to fund a good early seat and could cash the top check at a nice price.
