by Al Cimaglia

April 1, 2019

The Monday night feature at Mohawk Park rolls in Race 6, a Preferred Trot with a $34,000 purse. The Early 0.20 Pick 4 is a challenging sequence which starts 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 

4-Sir Galahad-In from Lon off 2 good efforts, camera shy but fits with this crew. 
5-Shadow Of Lindy-This might be a spot to leave and control the race, could be sitting on a big try at a square price. 
6-Phil The Thrill-5/2 choice finally back in 7-days, had a 56.1 back half in last, could take a picture with best effort. 

Race 5 

4-Capitano Italiano-Captaintreacherous colt sizzled the last 3/4's in final qualifier, looks ready to roll off the bench. 
5-Beach Baby Bee-2nd start on Lasix and last was better, comes back in 7-days and will use instead of ML chalk #3. 
7-Bronsons Delight-Respecting Filion's choice over #6 & #9, could know how good this colt can be after tonight. 

Race 6 

5-Free Willy Hanover-Mare has made it look easy in last 2 so will respect, winning 3rd straight may not be as easy. 
6-P L Jill-Best chance might be to blast out to get the jump on #5 and #7 and hope for best. 
7-B Yoyo-Shouldn't be hurt from starting outside in a short field, a quick pace could make difference versus this crew. 

Race 7 

2-BS Tyrrific-Has been facing tougher and this is a spot to shine, worth a swing at a square price. 
4-Mister Godro-Flew down the lane when dropped to this class, thinking Jamieson will be more aggressive tonight. 
5-Levy Taylore-A ++ trainer change off the Shepherd claim, should be kept in striking range from this post.
