Monday Jan 21: Mohawk Park Pick 5 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

January 21, 2019

The feature at Mohawk Park rolls in Race 7, a condition trot with a $25,000 purse. The very popular 0.50 Pick 5 starts the action, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 1 

2-Nasty Rumor-Suspect ML chalk is 0-29 but has been passing horses and this is a spot to get an overdue win. 
5-Chickie Love-Will respect in 1st start for Shepherd barn after claim, Roy may get an easy lead and find a soft 1/4. 
7-Jordies Hope-Should like the company and McClure could find some live cover, this mare knows how to win. 

Race 2 

2-On The Sly-Raced well and now steps up but could be up to the challenge from this post. 
4-Mystery Bet-8-year-old was in too tough in last 2, back down to level of recent success. 
7-Pepe Di Jesolo-Impressive win in last and can repeat, well worth a swing at 9/2 in the ML. 

Race 3 

2-Mystical Mission-Found life and trotted a 56.4 last half, needs a trip but should be a decent price. 
3-Flying Isa N-11-time winner in 2018 had no chance after broken equipment and gets Roy tonight. 
6-Musical Spell-Price shot was used more aggressively on a fast track in last and raced well, will be rolling late. 
8-Parkhill Nonstop-ML chalk drops to a spot to shine, should be in the hunt with a good cover flow. 

Race 4 

3-Think Again-Has burned a lot of money in last 2 but sheds the 9 & 10 post plus was off 21 days before last start. 
4-Prince Giovanni-1st start for Giles after a claim and easy win, Roy steers and look like a player. 
5-Lone Wolf Terror-Odds on favorite was used hard early, can makes amends for Drury-Auciello. 

Race 5 

5-R U Talkin-Won for fun on 1/10 and should offer a stiffer challenge to #7 than in first career start. 
7-Arukidnme Cabbie-Winner of 2 straight has returned to action in a big way, aims for 3rd straight, one to beat. 

0.20 Pick 5 

Total Bet=$43.20
