Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  FOR THURSDAY, APRIL 23 AT MAYWOOD PARK

Best Bet: Odds On Dominica (2nd race)

First Post 7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND, NW 1, F & M, PURSE $4,000:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

8  New Moon Hanover, Carpenter  2-1  3 2 5

6  L-Alaughandasmile, Warren  3-1  3 5 2

1  Tutta La Verita, Hiteman  7-2  5 2 6

3  L-Rich Item, Anderson  5-1  7 8 3

7  Fox Valley Scotch, Leonard  8-1  5 x x

4  Hip Shaken Mama, De. Magee  15-1  4 8 8

2  L-JL Golden Belle, Curtin  15-1  3 6 5

5  Kayla M, Wilfong  15-1  7 6 3

NEW MOON HANOVER in an obvious tough spot with the 8-hole but filly could rally for her maiden win tonight. ALAUGHANDASMILE can sprint out again and maybe get the top in decent shape and not be caught. TUTTA LA VERITA likely pushes the early pace and then settles in for a dangerous up-close trip.

SECOND: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, ICF, PURSE $3,200:

4  L-Odds On Dominica, Anderson  6-5  *2 *1 *1

6  L-Steph’s Melody, De Long  5-2  4 1 7

3  L-Pickaplacetopark, Affrunti  9-2  6 6 5

7  L+Spunky Baby, Wilfong  6-1  4 4 7

1  L-Primrose Path, Curtin  8-1  6 4 6

2  Justine’s Pride, Daniel  15-1  8 8 6

3  L-Nashville Kitty, Leonard  25-1  9 8 8

ODDS ON DOMINICA raced outside of the winner when she left from the 8-hole. Beaten choice can make amends here. STEPH’S MELODY comes off a three-wide effort. She’s a threat to get up in time. PICKAPLACETOPARK lacked racing room and could be a factor this time.

THIRD: PACE, COND, NW 2, F & M, PURSE $4,700:

5  Viva Venturi, Wilfong  7-5  *2 6 *6

6  +Dream Roll, Hiteman  3-1  1 *8 1

7  Mae Flynn, Rath  6-1  4 6 8

4  L-Box You In, Smolin  9-2  1 5 4

2  L-Koby’s Hoot, Carpenter  6-1  5 3 3

2  L-Fox Valley Roxanne, Affrunti  12-1  3 4 8

1  Jovanna, Leonard  15-1  8 6 6

VIVA VENTURI nailed late by the horse on her back. Try and catch her again. DREAM ROLL qualified well for her initial season start and may contend. MAE FLYNN was too far back to be a factor. I’m expecting better rom here.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $4,000, NW $1,250 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $2,700:

2  L-Shanghai Gadgette, Warren  2-1  5 3 3

4  !Fancy Too, Anderson  5-2  5 3 7

8  L-Looker Hotspur, Leonard  3-1  *7 3 3

5  L-Just Shutup Ndrive, Daniel  8-1  8 5 4

6  L!Fox Valley Dina, Curtin  10-1  7 6 7

1  L!Just Winit, Smolin  10-1  7 7 7

3  L-Money Runner, Wilfong  20-1  4 6 7

7  L!Fox Valley Vista, Krueger  20-1  8 7 4

SHANGHAI GADGETTE had nowhere to go or would have been closer. Mare gets her 6th different driver in her last 7 starts. FANCY TOO was raced inside and had too little, too late. Consider. LOOKER HOTSPUR bet down to even-money when she was parked out the mile by a 30-1 longshot. The trip can only be easier tonight.

FIFTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, PURSE $2,900:

1  L-Topville Bridgette, Hiteman  5-2  3 2 4

6  L!Alexibray, Warren  3-1  7 4 4

2  !Skyway Lena, Wilfong  7-2  1 6 6

4  L-Delightful Dot, Carpenter  9-2  3 3 6

7  Six Pack Annie, Rath  5-1  1 2 5

3  L!Star Gazed, Anderson  8-1  3 5 2

5  L!Curious Feeling, Leonard  15-1  7 6 6

TOPVILLE BRIDGETET zips out and likely has command or the two-hole. ALEXIBRAY reunited with Warren. Dropper is a possibility. SKYWAY LENA was wide much of the way and still won. In a bit tougher tonight but moves inside.

SIXTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, F & M, PURSE $3,700:

2  L-Shez A Swift, Leonard  5-2  *3 *1 *4

4  L-Babyshoebuyer, Warren  3-1  3 6 *1

3  L-McGarden McEden, Wilfong  4-1  4 2 1

5  L-CG Head Rurner, De Long  6-1  2 4 3

9  L-Our Miss Kristi, De. Magee  8-1  8 8 4

7  L-Fancy Free, Daniel  8-1  6 5 6

6  L-Kid Annetta, Anderson  15-1  5 7 5

1  L-Jenjen, Rath  15-1  7 6 5

8  L-Inxpressiblebeauty, Curtin  20-1  4 7 5

SHEZ A SWIFT had another nice finish. Even-money choice should be racing closer to the front this time. BABYSHOEBUYER failed first up. Warren takes back her lines tonight. MCGARDEN MCEDEN is racing well and might flush out live cover, so consider.

SEVENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, PURSE $3,200:

6  L-Fox Valley Bobbijo, Anderson  5-1  3 4 1

4  L-Greg And Flex, De. Magee  3-1  *3 *1 1

5  L!Tangible Hope, Warren  7-2  8 *5 2

3  L!Timewell, De Long  9-2  7 3 5

1  L-Parken Onda Street, Hiteman  4-1  3 5 4

2  +Wes Mantooth, Ippolito  6-1  4 5 6

7  L!Richard Traci, Wilfong  6-1  4 5 8

FOX VALLEY BOBBIJO may get brought up and rush past this competitive field. GREG AND FLEX was a winner last time he raced at this class against strictly ICF horses. TANGIBLE HOPE was in too tough. Fits well here and may go right to the top.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 4, PURSE $3,300:

5  L-Cottonland Gem, Leonard  9-5  2 *2 *1

3  BS Emily’s Sailor, Anderson  4-1  6 3 *1

8  L-Cuatro Cinco, Carpenter  9-2  *6 4 1

4  L-Party In The Park, De Long  6-1  4 3 7

7  L!Freefall, Curtin  6-1  6 3 5

6  L-Bell Valley Tiger, Hiteman  8-1  5 5 5

1  L-Online Learning, Rath  12-1  5 7 7

2  L!Wisconsin’s Best, Wilfong  15-1  8 6 8

COTTONLAND GEM got a pocket trip but 18-1 front-end longshot proved to be too tough. He may seek the top this time. BS EMILY’S SAILOR was hurt by outside posts in last two. Gelding is a threat here. CUATRO CINCO’S tough trip took its toll. Poor post helps tonight’s wagering value.

NINTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, PURSE $3,200:

2  L-Lazy Lizard, Warren  5-2  1 *5 *1

1  L-Jitterbug Jack, Curtin  3-1  2 *1 4

4  L-Wang Dang Doodle, Leonard  7-2  *4 6 2

6  L-Beach’s Nick, De Long  5-1  7 *1 8

5  L+Daretodogreathings, Anderson  6-1  2 2 9

7  L-Richess Nestor, Affrunti  10-1  5 2 3

8  L-Ben’s JD, Krueger  10-1  5 2 3

3  L-All Dune, Hiteman  15-1  9 7 6

LAZY LIZARD can grab command again and maybe hold off another field. JITTERUG JACK may seek and get another pocket trip and maybe this time a victory. WANG DANG DOODLE bet down but didn’t fire. He might tonight.

TENTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $4,200:

2  L+Wilfullyscooteneva, Warren  3-1  5 3 3

9  L-Bettors Babe, Leonard  6-1  6 7 9

1  L-Thedayyouhavemade, De Long  7-2  5 7 4

6  L-Prosper, Wilfong  6-1  8 2 3

4  Cams Sahbra, Smolin  4-1  4 4 4

3  L+Hookedonthefeelin, Slater  10-1  2 2 6

8  L-Anightwithwilma, Hiteman  12-1  3 4 9

5  L-Roseraire NZ, Anderson 12-1  8 5 9

7  L+Glitter Jolt, Curtin  15-1  6 5 7

WILFULLYSCOOTENEVA moves inside and could be in the right spot to get the job done this time. BETTORS BABE was never in position to be a factor. Consider him. THEDAYYOUHAVEMADE has speed from the inside to make him a possibility.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 4, F & M, PURSE $3,400:

2  L-Badlands Lady, Warren  3-1  1 1 8

9  L-WH Carmen. Curtin  7-2  3 7 6

3  L-Ideal Madonna, Wilfong  9-2  6 3 2

8  L-Miss Rich Britches, Leonard  5-1  *5 3 *1

7  Odds On Contango, Anderson  6-1  5 4 2

4  !Leeannarto, Krueger  8-1  6 2 6

5  L-Driven By Destiny, De Long  12-1  7 7 6

1  Brooklets Catch Me, Smolin  15-1  8 6 4

6  L-Wild Berry Muffler, De. Magee  15-1  7 7 8

BADLANDS LADY racing well and last two wins came at this same class. WH CARMEN had a game try and may be an easier mile away from winning this race. IDEAL MADONNA is a possibility with better striking position than he had last week.
