Monday, August 12: Mohawk Park Early Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

August 12, 2019

The co-features tonight at Woodbine Mohawk Park involve 3-year-olds in Ontario Sire Stakes Gold action. Two divisions of sophomore colt and gelding trotters roll in Race 2 and Race 8, each with a $105,600 purse. In Race 8, Hambletonian winner Forbidden Trade returns home and has been installed as the 2/5 morning line favorite. 

The 0.20 Early Pick 4 begins in Race 4. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus. Comments and selections below are based on a fast track. 

Race 4 

6-Officially Creek-ML chalk looks the part, sprinted out from 7-hole in 26.3 and put everyone away in last. 
7-Stelios-1st time Auciello and that may help this 4-year-old seal the deal, may sit on the back of #6. 

Race 5 

1-Fast N Relentless-Comes off an easy win at Grvr, was Henry's choice and will use from the rail at 10-1 in the ML. 
4-Look N Fabulous-Will toss last from the 9-hole, can take a picture if races back to 7-18 performance. 
8-Fiorella-Roy takes a seat and he did well with her versus Grass Roots fillies, could be sitting on a big try. 
9-Miss LA-Breeding says should be a top 2-year-old, 9-hole and will be bet but Henry choses off, using plus others. 

Race 6 

2-PL Jill-Drops back to a spot to shine, looks like a major player. 
4-Free Willy Hanover-Also a softer spot, if a few leave and the pace is hot, things could set-up up nicely for Willy. 

Race 7 

3-Setanta-Camera shy last 2 years, if a win is coming this is a good time, draws well, gets McNair but needs a trip. 
6-Alexus Eh-This is another who needs the right trip but at 8-1 in the ML is worth a swing, is 6-23 at Wbsb. 
8-Buzz-Auciello has been trying for almost a month to get a win, and this looks like a drop and pop situation.
