Saturday, October 12: Woodbine Mohawk Park Pick 5 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

October 12, 2019

The stage is set at Woodbine Mohawk Park for top two and three-year olds to compete in the Ontario Sires Stakes Super Gold Finals. Four of the Finals take place in the 0.20 Pick 5 sequence, which will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 1

1-Haveoneforme-Was off 20 days, the journey was rough, now Dunn could work a nice trip at a square price.
7-Bright Eyes M-Makes 6th start in a row from 7-hole and won last. Has gate speed to get top and not look back.
9-Teddys Littleangel-Winner of >$208k in '19 has had some issues, but McNair can work a trip at 6-1 in the ML.

Race 2

6-Alicorn-The 2/5 program chalk looks the part and seems to be a clean trip away from 7th picture in 11 starts.

Race 3

1-Winter Olympics-Has only made 5 starts and JMac needs a smooth trip, may get sucked around and surprise.
2-Wine Rack Hanover-Winner of 2 straight could get the top or 2-hole and chances for a hat trick go up.
4-Jula Shes Magic-Has some breaking issues and not easy to figure, but a top effort puts her in the hunt.
7-Warrawee Vicky-My thinking is McNair leaves and could get the top and look to grab one soft quarter.

Race 4

3-Traceur Hanover-Form is good and could be ready to step-up and win versus Pfd company at a nice price.
5-Brave World-Tripped out and beat 6 of these last week, could come right back from this post at 6-1 in the ML.
8-Easy Lover Hanover-Has been razor sharp, does have the ability to win from the outside, best to respect.

Race 5

2-YS Mathis-Back to Wbsb where colt has had top notch efforts versus Gold company, 2-1 ML chalk rates an edge.
4-Beach Blanket Book-Comes off a sharp win at Lon and now McNair returns, a danger with the right trip.
6-Denali Seelster-Winner of last 2 looks sharp enough to battle top Gold foes in search of 3rd straight picture.
