Al Cimaglia: March 14-Hawthorne Racecourse Late Pick 4 Analysis

March 14, 2020 | By Al Cimaglia

Hawthorne Racecourse has a 9-race card set to roll with the Late 0.50 Pick 4 starting in Race 6. The sequence has a $10,000 guaranteed pool and it will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 6

1-Spunky Bottom Girl (9/2)-Comes off an easy win versus NW1500 and takes a few steps up. Winner of >$52k in 2019 knows how to win and is in a spot to trip out. Likes to race close to the top of the stack and Oosting can put in play.
5-Pine Dream (2-1)-Drops out of Open company in 3rd local start. Has had trouble finishing miles but this is a soft spot. Using but can't completely trust so looking to others as well that could help the Pick 4 payout.
6-Double A Cash Hall (5-1)-9-year-old drops to a better level but will need an improved effort in 4th Haw start. Todd Warren's choice and he takes a spin for the 1st time which shouldn't hurt chances.
8-Pepin Coolie (9-1)-7-year-old makes 2nd start of sophomore season and steps up after a 3rd place finish. Can makes some noise versus this field if Leonard works the right trip.

Race 7

1-Dirt E Rock (8/5)-Has won from the rail and the 9-hole in first 2-lifetime starts and looks a notch above the others tonight.

Race 8

1-Lakeside Buddy (9-1)-Oosting's choice over #3 was a sick scratch last week. Looks to be worth a swing at 9-1 and can be put in play from the rail. Using and hoping the price is at least the morning line odds.
6-Fast Track (9-1)-Makes 2nd start on Lasix and comes off an improved effort last week. Upswing could continue at a juicy price.
8-Toxic Rock (7/2)-Leaves once again from the 8-hole in search of 3rd straight picture. Game 4-year-old rolled off cover and smoked the 2nd half in .56. Should be in the mix but has missed a start.

Race 9

1-Blissful Pansy (20-1)-Only 1-27 past 2 years but has won 8 of 42 at Haw. Had an even effort in 1st start off the bench but did race the last half in .57 and Bates chooses over the #7.
2-Danger Strike (7/2)-Didn't have much pop in 1st local start but was off 13-days. Fits here and looking for better after a start at the track.
3-Tarport Belle (7-1)-Ridge Warren's choice over #8 has beaten better at this meet. Could be put in play early versus this kind and should be in the mix at a fair price.
5-Windsun Brooklyn (9/5)-Team Leonard entry had a nice try in 1st local start and now steps up a notch. Looks like a player but not a standout 9/5 choice.

0.50 Late Pick 4

1,5,6,8/1/1,6,8/1,2,3,5
Total Bet=$24

Specifically designed for the rolling exotic player, Jeff Siegel’s “Daily Analysis and Wagering Strategies” isolates those horses that should be included in daily doubles, pick-3s, pick-4s, pick-5s, and the pick-6.
*
It is recommended that Jeff’s selections be used to augment the reader’s own personal handicapping, though excellent results can be achieved by applying the rolling exotic strategy specified by Jeff’s analysis. Jeff’s recommended plays are intended for players with a moderate budget; however, readers are encouraged to adjust Jeff’s wagering strategy to fit their preferred investment level.
*
Handicappers also are encouraged to access Jeff’s Daily Santa Anita Workout Analysis (see below), an exclusive report containing commentary, fractional times, grades, and a link to the video of the actual workout by each race’s key contenders.

*
Grade A=Highest degree of confidence.
Grade B=Solid Play.
Grade C=Least preferred, or pass.
Grade X=probable winner but odds are not likely to offer wagering value.
*
The selections are available every racing day after morning scratches. For updates, please follow us on twitter @jsiegelracing.

Today’s Day Makers: View Video

Today’s Workout Analysis: View PDF File

*
*

RACE 1: Post 1:00 PT. Grade: B+
Use: 2-Majestic Diva; 3-Sheza Factor

Forecast: Majestic Diva just demolished a $12,500 field by almost 10 lengths and earned a giant speed figure that if repeated today will be more than good enough to win right back despite the two-level class hike. She’s had plenty of time to recover from the effort, has trained nicely since, and offers wagering value at 3-1 on the morning line if you can get it. Sheza Factor might be worth tossing in as a saver. A two-time winner over the local main track, she’s a first-off-the-claim play for V. Garcia and projects to be the controlling speed.
*
*

RACE 2: Post 1:29 PT. Grade: B+
Use: 5-Quick Finish; 6-Black Storm

Forecast: Despite failing to change leads in the stretch, Black Storm drew away with complete authority to win a $20,000 claimer two weeks ago and did so with a speed figure that makes him double tough right back despite the raise into the first-level state-bred allowance ranks. He has the proper style for this extended sprint distance in a field without much speed, so we’ll put the G. Stute-trained gelding on top and hope to get close to his morning line of 3-1. Quick Finish can be used as a back-up or a saver. The D. Blacker-trained gelding has been away since last May but is training quite well and should fire a big shot fresh. He has enough early speed to be in the first flight – maybe even in front – and given that type of trip could get brave.
*
*

RACE 3: Post 1:59 PT. Grade: C+
Use: 1-Big Sweep; 2-Approved for Flyby; 3-Loud Loud Music

Forecast There are lots of question marks in this maiden state bred sprint for fillies and mares, so we’ll include three in our rolling exotics but otherwise sit it out. Big Sweep lands F. Prat for her debut and this $40,000 yearling by Mr. Big sports a steady if unspectacular series of workouts that should have her plenty fit. Approved for Flyby a daughter of Vronsky, has a six furlong 1:13.2h workout last month that catches the eye for capable veteran trainer E. Truman and should be a live item on the tote. Loud Loud Music has a brief work tab at Los Alamitos that looks intriguing for S. Miyadi, whose debut runners rarely are advertised in the a.m. The daughter of Tizbud could easily be much better than the moderate workout times might indicate.
*
*

RACE 4: Post 2:31 PT. Grade: B
Use: 5-Kadesh; 6-Big Hoof Dynamite

Forecast: Kadesh just won a maiden $30,000 claimer by more than 13 lengths and earned a speed figure that makes him a solid fit for new connections in this starter optional claimer. The son of Karakontie probably won’t get the soft pace pressing trip that he just enjoyed so he still has something to prove, but we’re thinking that the H. Palma-trained colt, who has produced a forward move in each of his five career starts, will be able to step forward once again. Big Hoof Dynamite also is improving and actually won a photo from Kadesh when they met two races back. He’s reunited with “win rider” F. Prat and should settle into a good stalking position outside and have every chance from the quarter pole home. These are the two we’ll be using in rolling exotic play with preference on top to Kadesh.
*
*

RACE 5: Post 3:03 PT. Grade: B
Use: 2-Li’l Grazen; 4-Songofthedesert; 10-Win Often

Forecast: Li’l Grazen, away since January of 2019, returns protected in a sign of confidence by trainer P. Miller, attracts hot-riding U. Rispoli, and shows a strong, healthy work tab at San Luis Rey Downs. Most effective as a late-running sprinter, she catches a field with plenty of heat to compliment her style and at this extended sprint trip seems capable of producing the last run. Win Often is drawn comfortably outside and should draft into an ideal second flight, stalking position. She’s back on dirt after earning a career top number when second on grass last time out. Songofthedesert, first off the claim for J. Wong (a massive 36% with this angle), vans down from the Bay Area and is clearly well-meant while being raised into the allowance ranks. She appears to be the most dangerous of the speed types and will take them as far as she dan.
*
*

RACE 6: Post 3:35 PT. Grade: X
Use: 2-Great Power; 6-Charlatan

Forecast: Charlatan earned a triple-digit, Grade-1 quality speed figure in his runaway debut maiden win and today removes blinkers, moves up a notch in class and stretches out to a mile. We’ll find out what he’s made in this highly-competitive first-level allowance event, because also in the field is a colt with a similar resume, Great Power a visually highly-impressive maiden first-out winner in fast time during the fall season, training superbly for his comeback, and stretching out to a distance he’s seems certain to enjoy. In a race matching two colts with classic aspirations, it’s a good one to watch but perhaps not a great one to bet on. We’ll pass but include both in our rolling exotics with preference on top to Charlatan.
*
*

RACE 7: Post 4:07 PT. Grade: B+
Use: 6-Ollie’s Candy; 7-Ce Ce

Forecast: Ce Ce tries two turns for the first time - she was fourth in the Acorn S.-G1 at a one turn mile last year - and based on her comeback win looks capable of being up to the task in a terrific edition of the Beholder Mile-G1 for older fillies and mares. The daughter of Elusive Quality could not have been more impressive beating a lesser field in a common gallop and has trained superbly since. We’re projecting the M. McCarthy-trained filly to settle in mid-pack outside and then turn on the pressure from the top of the lane to the wire. Ollie’s Candy is the most dangerous of the closing types and if she gets some help up front could easily blow past everybody in the final furlong. The daughter of Candy Ride, away since finishing a respectable fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff-G1 in November, switches to F. Prat and appears ready to embark on a terrific 5-year-old season. We’ll sink or swim in rolling exotic play using these two and then have extra tickets keying Ce Ce on top.
*
*

RACE 8: Post 4:39 PT. Grade: B+
Use: 2-Blazing Charm; 6-Our Romance

Forecast: Our Romance has much in her favor while dropping into a maiden claimer for the first time and the P. D’Amato-trained filly, after hitting the board in three of her last four races when facing tougher straight maiden foes should greatly appreciate this easier task. She’s also shortening up to a sprint and switching to the main track, so under these more favorable conditions the daughter of Archarcharch seems very likely to produce a winning effort. There’s value here at 5/2 on the morning line if you can get it. Blazing Charm is a sneaky first-timer from an outfit that does well with debut runners, and with F. Prat taking the call the daughter of James Street may be a bit better than her moderate workout times might lead one to believe. At 8-1 on the morning line she’s worth including on a ticket or two as a saver.

Brian Nadeau's Daily Picks

Aqueduct - Race #2
Picks Notes
#5 Seven Plus Seven Class dropper dueled hard then stopped last time, but here he looks like the controlling speed over a modest group, and may get brave; hoping he forgets to stop.
#6 Justice of War Underlay didn't fire off the Rice claim and now drops stiffly, and below the claim price, though this outside attack post will help his stalking style; major player.
#4 Legion Storm Stretch runner is favored on the ML and certainly figures, though the run for 25k last time was meek, and Rice hasn't improved him off the claim; trying to beat.
Race Summary The price on the 5 will be big, and that will help alleviate the fact he bombed last time, but if he clears on the lead, which is possible, he could put a scare into them, so give him a look in all the slots, and to start the early Pk5 as well, since a win would go a long way in blowing things up right off the bat, and if he hits the far turn 2 in front, he may be able to deliver it.

Aqueduct - Race #5
Picks Notes
#2 Sunshine Gal NYB has been facing some seasoned AOC types, so this is a decisive class drop, not to mention this stretch runner should get plenty of pace to rally into; love her chances here.
#4 Fair Lassie Fellow NYB hasn't been facing as tough as the pick but does have a stalking gear and should be in good position off the far turn, at what should be a decent price too; second-best.
#3 Ok Honey Stalker was a decent 4th at the level last time, which would snag a piece here, but the top-2 have a bit more class, which means this is a tougher heat this time; underneath only.
Race Summary You certainly won't get rich on the 2 but if the 3-1 ML holds that would be an underlay on a gal who is the class, and gets all the best of it in terms of race flow too, so make an aggressive win and place bet, while getting some added value by singling her to end the early Pk5/Pk4 and to kick off the late Pk5 as well, since she's getting all the best here, and was already tops to begin with.

Aqueduct - Race #8
Picks Notes
#5 Piedi Bianchi Stalker came back off the long layoff and ran huge last time, when beating today's (odd) ML favorite (#2), and she gets a huge boost here too, since shes a stalker in a very spedy field, so if she doesn't regress off that big return, she's going to be a real handful; look out.
#4 Kept True The gal to beat looked good pressing and beating NYB stakes foes last time, and that style will get her first run on the pick today, though with speed to both sides it might be hard to chase the splits, kick clear, and still hold off 'Bianchi in the lane; still, looms plenty scary.
#1 Slimey Stretch runner is far outgunned on paper, and simply not good enough to win this, but the race flow suits her style, and she always runs her race, so with a very positive race flow, and a big price looming, just maybe she lays back and passed a few; may spice up your tri.
Race Summary All things being equal, the 5-2 ML on the pick is very playable, especially if you think she's not going to bounce off the big return, so if that's the case she's worth an aggressive win and place bet, and keying in the late Pk5/Pk4 too, since she gets all the best of it here, while the 4 and the (unmentioned) 2 could get zapped by what looks like a very aggressive pace.

Brian W. Spencer's Daily Picks

Charles Town - Race #3
Picks Notes
#3 Meltech Might get a pretty cozy go of things near the top in a spot without much pace. He should be in the mix from the start and seems playable at something like the 3/1 ML offering.
#1 Mayhem Like Me Solid score when returning to the local footing, and he probably has just enough tactical pace to stay in touch in the early going.
#6 Brother Corbin Think there's a real chance this guy is sitting on a step back, but his last stacks up really nicely here if taken at face value.
Race Summary Meltech should not have too much company right up on top early here, and the last time he won was the last time he went for the front.

Charles Town - Race #5
Picks Notes
#2 Grecian Admiral Caught a tough winner when sent to post at 32/1 in the debut run, and though the price gets shorter today, he's got some upside in this second lifetime start.
#1 Bear's Estate Finished just ahead of the top choice when they met last out, but this one has already had six chances, so excuses are getting a little thin at what is a likely underlaid price.
#3 Indian Wildfire Doesn't meet much here outside of the top pair, so he won't have to be a star to score at first asking with these.
Race Summary Grecian Admiral has more upside than Bear's Estate, and that gives him the edge after those two were separated by less than a length last out.

Charles Town - Race #7
Picks Notes
#8 La Medalla do Oro Finishing type can get a decent tracking run here, and the hope is that a couple of the cheaper pace players soften up the heavy chalk early.
#3 Lou's Chardonnay Should be tough after taking an absolutely giant step forward in those last two starts for the new team. Sure, she probably runs these off their feet at a short price, but it's worth trying to beat her.
#1 Bridging the Gap Gets a tough draw from the inside with some other pace stacked up further outside of her. Not impossible, but she'll need everything to go her way.
Race Summary La Medalla de Oro can settle and watch the pace unfold in the early going, and there might be enough other pace to bother Lou's Chardonnay on the engine and set things up for her late run.

Frank Carulli's Daily Picks

Pocono Downs - Race #3
Picks Notes
#2 ROYAL HEART Set fast pace, held on for third win in a row, enters new barn.
#3 RON BAKARDI Useful return after 3-1/2 months away, should get ideal set-up.
#6 HORSING AROUND Won 4 of his last 6 on the heels of a 2-38 season in 2019.
Race Summary Royal Heart held up under demanding fractions to extend his winning streak to three. The $446k earner can rate as he seeks his 34th victory. Play 2-3 and 2-7 exactas.

Woodbine-Mohawk Park - Race #5
Picks Notes
#1 ISITFRIDAYYET Stayed in at key juncture, rallied too wide and too late.
#3 TRACEUR HANOVER Millionaire was blocked with run between rivals in the stretch.
#9 POINTS NORTH Regained winning confidence with 1:50.4 romp on the class drop.
Race Summary Isitfridayyet, anxious while saving ground in fourth, didn’t get out in time before the half-mile marker and was shuffled to seventh. He swung 4-wide in the stretch and finished well against several of the same rivals. Play a 1-ALL exacta.

Woodbine-Mohawk Park - Race #7
Picks Notes
#6 P L JACKSON Has had excuses lately, can overhaul this field, good value play.
#1 ISLANDSPECIALMAJOR Gets class relief, moves outside in, gets second-time Lasix.
#4 BRODY’S SCRAPPER Rallied into photo-finish from second-tier starting spot.
Race Summary P L Jackson rallied fast and wide in the wind and snow three starts back, left too much work to do on the class rise two back, then led until the stretch while racing against his normal style last week. He’s perfectly spotted to win at a decent price.

Jerry Shottenkirk's Daily Picks

Gulfstream Park - Race #7
Picks Notes
#5 War Star Ran on well and settled for 2nd last out; has been in the hunt in her 5F turf races and can close it out late in the game.
#7 Shes All Woman Is a main-track-only entrant and comes off a solid 2nd; stands out if this comes off the turf.
#1 Stormy Nelly Romped vs. N2L company and takes a step up in class; can prompt the pace from the inside and can stay for a piece of it.
Race Summary War Star has run well on the turf and has the finishing move to get it done. Shes All Woman (MTO) is the choice if this comes off the grass.

Gulfstream Park - Race #9
Picks Notes
#6 Rule Yourself Was in the mix in tougher races at Laurel and gets a positive rider change here; makes 1st start for Joseph, Jr., stable and Gaffalione will have him rolling late. Workouts say he's ready for his 1st since October.
#2 Valdolobo Has been a strong player in all three U.S. starts and takes another step up the conditions ladder; his last was too good to ignore.
#8 Belgrano Was claimed by Russo stable last out and has been in some strong races, mainly in New York.
Race Summary Rule Yourself has a strong closing moves and has responded to Joseph, Jr., stable for morning works. A clean trip gets it done here.

Gulfstream Park - Race #11
Picks Notes
#7 Wildwood's Beauty Made a solid move into 2nd but couldn't finish the job in the G2 Inside Info; will make a strong move today and has the class to prevail.
#1 Blamed Has the speed to get to the lead from the inside and will be very dangerous is she can get a slight breather out front.
#2 Heiressall Comes off a 3rd in a fast race last time and a similar effort can get her number on the board.
Race Summary Wildwood's Beauty has performed well vs. better and will get a good pace in front of her; looks like the perfect spot.

    Betting On Virtual Motorsports Betting On Virtual Motorsports Virtual motorsport races are drawing a lot of attention from sportsbooks and their players. For those in the sports betting world, the cancellation of major sports has left us with few wagering options. But while fans of basketball, baseball, or hockey are patiently waiting to see their favorite players return to action, motor racing bettors don't have to wait at all. Competitive motor racing barely missed a beat when COVID-19 shut down sports worldwide, thanks to the realism of virtual racing simulators. These programs are used regularly by drivers to keep their skills sharp without the high cost of real track practice. Therefore, many of the top racers in the world entered eSports tournaments just days after real-world events were canceled. The first of these events were held in March and became so popular that sportsbooks began to take notice and offer odds. This is an excellent opportunity for any bookmaker to use the momentum of this sport to fill the gaps left in the absence of most leagues. The success of these events just goes to show how far the realism of simulation racing has come in the eSports era. With professionals now involved, along with the sanctioning bodies of F1, NASCAR & IndyCar, sim racing has been put into the spotlight. Make no mistake; the age of competitive virtual motorsports is upon us. With that in mind, let's explore the big three leagues going on right now that you can bet on. eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series The NASCAR season was put on hiatus after just four races, but a new form of the sport is experiencing an explosion in popularity. The NASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational was created to pick up where the Cup Series left off and use the iRacing platform to finish the season. Taking place each Sunday, this series pits NASCAR drivers and dignitaries against one another on a virtual track. Names such as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, and Kyle Bush are a big reason for the early success. The iRacing platform makes the action feel as genuine as possible and is used for training on off days. Denny Hamlin suggested that around half of the people who work for or with NASCAR already have home setups, including wheels and pedals in their homes. This allowed for a quick transition for many races from the real to the digital world. The success of this new form of competition has been undeniable. The races run so far have been watched by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to rave reviews. The odds are available now for upcoming races at Dover and Martindale speedways. William Byron is 3/1 favorite to win both after taking the checkered flag in the last two races and Top-8 finishes in the other two. Timmy Hill is also a guy to keep an eye on. Hill has finished in the Top-3 in all but one race this year and is 15/2 heading into Dover. INDYCAR iRacing Challenge iRacing has also teamed up with INDYCAR to host a virtual racing series while real races are on hold. The competitors are a mix of NTT INDYCAR Series drivers, along with some special invitees such as F1 racer Lando Norris. Norris was a special guest driver for Arrow McLaren for last week's race at the Circuit of the Americas. The 20-year-old dominated the field in fact as he beat out the other 33 drivers on the virtual road course in Texas. Norris had more than 20,000 viewers watching his Twitch stream alone. The races last around 70 minutes and are broadcasted live on NBCSN with live commentary just like a day at the track would have. There is even a pre-race show featuring a national anthem presentation and more. The list of drivers includes seven Indianapolis 500 winners and features names like Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Simon Pagenaud. F1 eSports Virtual Grand Prix Series With the real-world Formula 1 series postponed, the F1 eSports Virtual GP series has stepped into the spotlight. Professional drivers, retired legends, full-time gamers, and celebrities go head to head in events that mirror the real-life series. This gives bettors a chance to continue watching and wagering on competitive racing on weekends. The major difference with the F1 Virtual Series is the platform that is utilized. Formula One has its own branded title developed by Codemasters. While not as realistic as the iRacing software, it is still a popular alternative for fans to watch. It must also be mentioned that this series is not a part of the competitive eSports series that is also currently active. This series is more of an exhibition event and features racers of varying driving and gaming talent. Races are 28 laps or less and follow qualifying to determine the starting positions for each race. The first race saw participants ranging from current F1 drivers Nicholas Latifi and Lando Norris, reserve talent Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Gutierrez, and legend Nico Hülkenburg. Formula 2 racers, Academy drivers, and pros from other series filled out the starting grid. Odds for these events have been popular betting options over the last few weeks. Heading into the next event, Team Renault is favorites to win a 4/1 with McLaren (5/1) and Mercedes (6/1), taking the next two spots on the odds board. The latter is an interesting play at those odds considering Guiterrez and Vandoorne are both F1 test drivers and gamers, making Mercedes a strong contender. These are just three of the major series going on right now, but IMSA, Porche, and the WRC all have eSports events running on a weekly basis. These series will continue to run and provide betting options even when real-world racing returns to action. This is the perfect time for the sports betting industry to embrace not only eSports but the competitive virtual racing scene. PayPerHead® agents can stand to benefit massively from this emerging sport. Especially during these trying times, having a weekly event for fans to bet on is a powerful thing. Any time you can get your clients interested in new events is time well spent. If your pay per head service provider does not include eSports on their list of odds, then it might be time to find a better option. At PayPerHead®, we pride ourselves on offering odds on a slew of virtual and simulation sports to keep your players busy while we await the return of major sports nationwide.
