Woodbine Mohawk Park begins the week with a 10 race card. The feature comes in Race 6, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The 0.20 Early Pick 4 starts in Race 4, and that sequence will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-HP Mama B (2-1)-This filly has only one loss this year and has won the last 3 in impressive fashion. Filion isn't here tonight and Baillargeon is between the pipes but he is capable. If at 100% and with a fair trip it could be picture time at a very short price but won't trust enough to single.
6-Imaextraspecial (5/2)-Muscle Mass filly is no slouch and banked over $223k in 2020. Comes off an efficient win at GeoD and Young will replace regular pilot Henry. Should be put in play early and could get a pocket ride behind the chalk. Will need a top effort but comes off a win and maybe this time Mama can be collared down the lane.
1-Zar E IP (8-1)-Taking a swing for a price in a tough race and looking for an improved effort versus this company. Should be forwardly placed and could surprise for the 1st win of 2021. (0-4)
3-Town Delinquent (3-1)-Fits well with this group and Young has won with her at Wbsb at the end of last year. Has hit the board in 4 of 6 here with 2 wins and should be a player.
1-Memo (10-1)-Did not catch #2 a strong winner last time, but with an alert start got a nice pocket ride. Draws inside and may trip out again but this time could be 1st under the wire.
2-Treasured Tee (5/2)-Made every call a winning one in last and although McNair won't between the pipes Drury could work a similar trip. Best to not overlook after an impressive score.
4-Run Director (2-1)-Comes off a sharp win in the 1st start on Lasix. Steps-up after posting a 151.4 winning time which was the fastest since 2019 and could be firing right back tonight.
2-HP Running Mass (8-1)-Has hit the board in 3 of 4 starts at Wbsb with 1 win. Will excuse the last break at RidC, before that was in fine form and shouldn't blush at the company. Can be in play from the start and will probably offer a solid price.
3-Warrawee Whisper (7/2)-Has been in the hunt in all 3 races at this class. The best effort came last week and raced up close to quick fractions to cash a 2nd place check. Looking for another solid try and can end up in the winner's circle with a good steer.
5-Full Of Muscles (3-1)-Came off the bench hot with 2 straight wins and the last was a sparkler from post 10. Will face better tonight but draws well and has hit the board in 8 of 10 at Mohawk with 2 pictures.
