Sunday, June 16: Hawthorne Late Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

June 16, 2019

Hawthorne Racecourse has 11-races set to roll tonight. The 0.50 Late Pick 4 begins in Race 8 and it has a $30,000 guaranteed pool. Two-year-old trotters will be featured on the card in Night of Champions-Leg 1 action. 

Last night at Hawthorne the driver with the hottest hands was Casey Leonard with six trips to the winner's circle on the 13-race card. The top trainer on the night was Terry Leonard with three pictures. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 8 

2-Valar Morghulis-2nd time Lasix for beaten chalk and now Leonard takes a seat, could be set for a better effort. 
8-Winter Gram-Tried hard off a tough trip in last, should be rolling late and could surprise with a trip. 

Race 9 

2-Waymore-Scorched the 2nd half in 55.1 for an easy win. This field shouldn't pose a problem if races back to last. 
4-Storming D Odds-Longshot makes 4th local start, fits better with this post draw and will take a swing at 25-1 in ML. 

Race 10 

1-Susan Sage-Rolled home off a nice trip but now gets a positive driver change and post relief versus similar. 
5-Red Hot Packerette-Faded in 1st start off the bench but Leonard sticks and should be tighter. 
8-Fox Valley Zola-Beaten chalk has been facing better, in the hunt with a good steer. 

Race 11 

1-Shes First Class-Needs to avoid a slow start and finally draws inside, tries hard and should be a player. 
7-Swaneelou-Has had excuses and fits better in 4th start off the bench but Wilfong needs to work a good trip.
