August 17-Hawthorne Late Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

August 17, 2018

Hawthorne has a 10-race card set to start the weekend. The headliner from a wagering perspective is the 0.50 Pick 4 that begins in Race 7. There will be a $20,000 guaranteed pool for the Late Pick 4 sequence and it will be my focus. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 


Race 7 

2-Crystal Hotspur-Wasn't Leonard's choice, has trouble passing foes, but has speed and this is a soft bunch. 

6-Rockin Roxine-This is the 2nd start for MacKenzie, found a spark at the end of the last mile and Leonard sticks. 


Race 8 

2-CJ's Real Deal-Should hang around from this post and look to use one move to sweep by. 

3-Between Me And You-Taking a swing in an open race with new trainer who also drives, has shown speed. 

5-Memory King-Drew off to win by 4 to get 1st win in 2 years, an encore could be in the cards. 

7-Caviart Spencer-Has been in decent form but needs the right trip, at 10-1 in the ML is worth a play. 

8-Wildcat Bobby-Slow starter likes to roll late, get a ++ driver change as Leonard takes a seat. 


Race 9 

4-Sir Mammo-Makes 4th local start, does step up but last was an improvement with a sizzling back half. 

5-He Gone Jack-Drops out of Opens and should appreciate the company. 

6-Parklane Official-Leonard's back and now drops to a better level to shine. 

8-Fox Valley Reggie-Beat some of these at Spr now Wilfong steers and that shouldn't hurt, can pop at a price. 


Race 10 

1-Feelnlikearockstar-Recent form has been dull, 9/5 chalk drops and has no excuse from here to get an overdue win. 

5-Ideal Candidate-Likely the biggest threat to #1, also drops, needs a trip but if so could surprise at 7-1 in the ML. 


0.50 Late Pick 4 


Total Bet=$40
