Monday, February 18: Mohawk Early Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

February 18, 2019

The feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park is scheduled as Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. As usual the popular 0.20 Pick 4 begins 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. 

Race 4 

1-Heza Big Dealer-1st time Gallucci is camera shy but draws well and should be forwardly placed, could trip out. 
2-Lively Freddie-Missed a few starts before last race, thinking Auciello will have primed for an aggressive try. 
8-Kwicky Kwanzaa-McNair steers for Roy, pace could be quicker and 2nd time for Shepherd shouldn't hurt either. 
9-Jenkins Creek-2nd start for Moreau and comes back in 10-days this itme, will need to find a good early seat. 

Race 5 

2-Head Turning Jag-Moves up after a sharp effort from 9-hole and was off 18 days, should be in the hunt 
5-Hemi Seelster-Needs best but this is a spot to get on the engine or in the pocket, could pop at a square price. 
10-Magic Night-Back from Big M and had an even effort in 1st start, will take a swing at a price with Team Hensley. 

Race 6 

2-Surf Report-Has been in sharp form and now steps up, needs a top effort but will respect connections. 
5-Reiki-Draws better after a rough trip and Roy steers tonight, looks like a major player. 
8-Crocadile Canyon-Makes 2nd start for Sheperd and Henry can work a trip, likes to roll late. 

Race 9 

1-Fly Beyond-Has needed more pop down the lane but slow pace hurt in last, best to respect tonight. 
3-Cue Hall-Beaten favorite also needs a little more at the end of the mile, this is a spot to make amends. 
6-Big Rich-Looks to be a player and should be rolling off the gate, this race could set-up well for Roy.
