Al Cimaglia, June 23: Hawthorne Late Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

June 23, 2019

Hawthorne Racecourse has an 11-race card scheduled to wrap-up the weekend. The headliner for betting purposes is the 0.50 Late Pick 4. That sequence begins in Race 8, it has a $30,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus. 

The driver with the hottest hands on Saturday night was Kyle Wilfong with five wins on the 14-race card. Terry Leonard led conditioners with two trips to the winner's circle. 

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 8 

2-Heidi High-Driver change helps and could get the pocket trip behind #9, should benefit from a cleaner trip. 
9-Louzotic-Has ruled this class but hasn't had a bad post draw in a long time, have to respect but won't single. 

Race 9 

5-Are You Terry-Better post draw, drops and I like the driver change to Wilfong, will take a swing at 9-1 in the ML. 
7-Over Speeding-Comes off an easy win, steps-up and trip may not be as good, but still will respect Team Leonard. 
8-Unbroken Circle-Won 1st off a claim like a good horse, loses Leonard but gets Bates, using, looks like a player. 

Race 10 

4-Frontier Ginger-Sheds the 9-hole, drops to a better spot, Husted's choice over the #2 could be posing. 
8-My Uptowne Girl-Won at this class last week after skipping a start, loses the rail but offers value at 25-1 in the ML. 
9-Finleys Filly-ML chalk came off the bench with a good effort and Leonard trainee should be tighter tonight. 

Race 11 

2-Sports Analyst-Can beat this field with the right trip, needs to avoid a very sluggish start. 
7-Waymore-Razor sharp winner of 2 straight deserves respect, but from this post will play but use 2 others as well. 
8-Youmakemyheartsing-Tries hard, fits but needs the right trip, can take a picture with live cover and a good steer.
