Monday, March 4: Mohawk Park Early Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

March 4, 2019

The feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park is set to go in Race 8, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 sequence begins in Race 4, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 4 

1-Kwicky Kwanzaa-Not my favorite horse but will respect from the rail with McNair in 4th start for the Shepherd barn. 
5-Surf Report-Should relish the class drop and looks like a major player. 
8-ER Quinn-Another dropper who could get the pocket behind #1 and pop at a square price. 

Race 5 

1-LMC Mass Oak-Hung a bit in last but now draws the wood, beaten favorite can make amends. 
5-Batting Stats-Comes right back after an easy win, best to respect chances for an encore. 
8-Esquire-Finds a better spot versus this group, will take a swing for a price and hope Hudon works a trip. 

Race 6 

1-JJ Powerball-Has been handled cautiously off the gate, rallied nicely in last and could be put in play sooner tonight. 
2-Ill Be Back-Makes 3rd start on Lasix and this may be "go" time for Auciello and McNair. 
5-Mc Pat-Last 3 have been on an off track, looking to see a better effort on a dry surface. 
8-Speed To Market-4th start after a private purchase, looking for some gate speed to gain a good seat and then rally late. 

Race 7 

5-Odds on Amethyst-Has been far back early versus better, now gets post relief and this could be a drop and pop situation. 
6-Magic Night-Makes 4th start for Team Hensley and last was better, looking for the upswing to continue. 
8-Bee In Charge-Claimed in last 4, had an easy win at this class on 2-23. Post could be an issue, but best to not overlook.
