Monday, June 21: Woodbine Mohawk Park Late Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

June 21, 2021

Woodbine Mohawk Park begins the week with a 10 race card. The 0.20 Late Pick 4 begins in Race 7, and that sequence will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 7

1-Combs Hanover (3-1)-Left from this same post in last and broke 7th but that was not an issue. Went the long way around and raced wide to score a sharp win in the 1st start off the bench. Best to respect off a top effort and could be better tonight.
5-Toccoa Falls (8-1)-Comes off a nice qualifier with a 55.2 last half and should like the company. This is a camera shy 4-year-old and will need an honest pace. But JMac may find a decent seat from this post and is worth a swing at the morning line price.
8-I got The Looks (4-1)-Is only 1-12 at Wbsb but comes off a big try to cash a 2nd place check as the betting favorite. This post will add to the price and can come off cover like in last when he rolled the back half in 55.4.

Race 8

4-Behavenmyself (3-1)-Dialed it up last week in the 1st start off the bench and took a picture at 10-1. Won't be that price but fits with this crew. Will include and hope winning becomes a habit but is only 2-23 going back to 2020.
7-Vines To Heaven (5/2)-First start after the break was an even try versus better. Fits well with this kind and had success at this level in April. Should be a player at a short price.

Race 9

1-First Class Horse (4-1)-Nine-year old has made only 6 starts since 2020 but has banked over $500,000 in his career. Did race well on 6-15 but faded down the lane after a tough trip. Comes right back here, so will assume all systems are go and could have an even stronger effort tonight.
4-General Lee (7/2)-Makes the 2nd start for the Johnson barn and was driven aggressively from the 9-hole after shipping back from Hoosier. It was a strong try and Roy should be able to work a smooth trip with this post draw.
6-Art Of Fire (10-1)-Got a race in at GrVr after the break. Now drops into a good level and one of recent success. Has had only 3 Wbsb starts but has hit the board twice with one win.

Race 10

3-O Narutac Perfetto (9/2)-Raced in the Preferred Handicap class in the 1st race back and now drops to a spot to shine. Coulter should be able to work a nice trip and could offer a square price.
4-Only For Justice (7/2)-Won its qualifier on 6-11 and trotted a quick 55.3 back half. Is only 3-33 at Wbsb but has faced better. Should be in the mix with a decent steer at this class if minds manners.
8-Memo (3-1)-Beat this kind last week and 4 from this field were part of that race. McNair has some gate speed to work with and looks like a real threat to take another trip to the winner's circle.
