Woodbine Mohawk Park has a 12-race card scheduled with the features being a pair of Harvest Series Finals. The Early Pick 4 sequence contains the headliners and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
4-Unprecedented (3-1)-Makes 3rd start for new barn, chased a tough winner in last and now McClure should have him in play sooner.
6-Toxicity (4-1)-Chased the same winner as #4 last week and raced big. Now makes 2nd start on Lasix and should be a major player.
1-Wiggle Delight (8-1)-Drew-off in last and won by open lengths. Now we will find out if last week's effort can be repeated. I don't think it will be as easy but from this post will respect chances for an encore.
4-Beach Sports (9/2)-Makes 3rd start off the bench and last two were sharp efforts. McNair may get off the gate and put in play sooner from this post.
6-Better Days Ahead (5-1)-McClure takes a spin as Henry chooses #10. This filly could win with the right trip and from this post will take a swing for a square price.
2-Trina (6-1)-This gal raced well in last after breaking stride and being off 19-days. Can race near the top of the stack and could get a 2-hole trip behind #3 and use a well-timed move to pop at a nice price.
3-Goddess De Vie (5/2)-Looks like the one to beat if minds manners, has a good resume versus others in this field.
1-Salutation (8-1)-Last effort was good after returning from the Red Mile, has been facing tough company and will use here.
2-Erikas Shadow (6-1)-Has been closing in sub :27 final quarters and this is 3rd time McClure. Pace could be solid and may not be as far back from this post.
3-Audi Bayama (8-1)-Has been racing well at FlmD and likes to win, could carry speed on the big track and surprise.
7-Fresh Eyes (9/2)-Has been racing well at Lon and is no stranger to a big oval. Shows a 1:53 mark at Haw and may enjoy the company.
8-Cafe Society (7/2)-Can get off the gate to get a good seat and has held her own versus older. Could take a picture if Hudon works a good trip.
