Woodbine-Mohawk Park Racing Schedule

RAY COTOLO’s Picks (yeah, that ray cotolo)

Race 1

5-1-2-7
(#5) SOLID NINE HANOVER went a little too hard in the first quarter last out and finished evenly, but has otherwise been on a positive progression since returning in March. Should offer value.

Race 2

2-6-4-3
(#2) THINK AHEAD has been nursed along since debuting earlier this year and went a solid comeback mile at London following her gung-ho effort in the Spring Series final. She’s ready for this test.

Race 3

5-7-6-3
(#5) SILVER LABEL took a bit of time to accelerate but eventually gathered her feet to just hold second. The trip might work better for her this time and she should be tighter in her third start back.

Race 4

10-4-7-2
(#10) WALLACE HARTLEY looks like a horse that wants to race. In just his second start he showed he’s fast and handy, so post 10 shouldn’t be too big an obstacle for a yougin’ already with a brain.

Race 5

8-9-4-1
(#8) COLLUSION HANOVER has gone two solid miles ahead of this opening Grassroots leg. She possibly could be a Gold type down the road (despite that division being deep) so this looks like a prime spot to build her confidence.

Race 6

5-1-4-3
(#5) LINDYS IRISHCREAM broke stride when tired from parking the mile last out, so she is forgiven. She gets a prime draw to work a good trip, but of course she’ll also have to mind her gait manners.

Race 7

4-8-2-7
(#4) THIS MAGIC MOMENT coasted in 1:53 over a wet track last out to a simple tap of the whip for a reminder. The reservoir appears deep plus she likely gets the tactical edge in this race if James (MacDonald, we’re on a first-name basis ya know) puts her forward.

Race 8

3-5-7-4
(#3) GREATEST PLEASURE competed well in Grassroots company at 2 and has gone okay miles to start her sophomore season. But now its time to get points for the Grassroots series, so she’s going to get points.

Race 9

3-4-2-6
(#3) MASS MARKET will likely get away off the speed again, but if Bobby can get him somewhat close he stands a better chance to not just let MASS HYSTERIA walk away with the race.

RaceS 10-12 + multis

RACE 10

4-6-2-7
(#4) PASS AND STOW went a scorcher to win in the Pennsylvania Sires Stakes last out and should again be competitive against a group like this.

RACE 11
6-8-3-4
(#6) DABARNDAWGSWATCHIN usually pops with a big mile when she can escape the titans of the Fillies & Mares Preferred. She figures to go forward and do her thing.

RACE 12
8-1-6-5-7
(#8) GIGONDAS drops to the lowest class he’s seen in awhile so he may try to just go to the front and carry them at his whim. But beware that sometimes he gets lonely on the lead. Just sometimes.

$.20 Early Pick 5 Play: 1,2,5,7 / 2,6 / 5 / 10 / 1,4,8,9 = $6.40
