Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  FRIDAY'S MAYWOOD LINE LISTED BELOW

 THURSDAY, JULY 24 AT MAYWOOD PARK

Best Bet: Don’t Tell Wayne (9th race)

First Post 7:10 pm

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

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

6  L-Kennan’s Nancy Lee, De Long  7-2  2 2 *1

2  L-Shez A Swift, Kennedy  2-1  *1 *1 *1

1  L!Kendyl, Warren  5-2  2 *4 7

5  L-Looker Hotspur, Leonard  8-1  4 3 2

4  L+Primrose Path, Smolin  8-1  1 4 4

8  L-Delightful Dot, Carpenter  8-1  2 3 6

3  L-Pickaplacetopark, Wilfong  20-1  6 4 3

7  L-Kid Annetta, De. Magee  25-1  6 6 9

KENNAN’S NANCY LEE may get up in time with better striking position. SHEZ A SWIFT has been dominant at this class in her last four starts and is the logical and likely heavy favorite again. KENDYL was in too tough off the claim. Mare has a very big shot tonight with the drop and this post.

SECOND: PACE, COND/CLMG $1,250 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $2,700:

2  L!Star Gazed, Anderson  5-2  7 6 7

1  L!Steph’s Melody, De Long  3-1  7 4 6

7  L!McGarden McEden, Leonard  7-2  4 4 4

3  L-Our Miss Kristi, Wilfong  6-1  8 7 5

4  L-Ideal Madonna, Kennedy  8-1  6 6 3

6  L!Glitter Jolt, De. Magee  10-1  6 5 8

5  L!Makin A Statement, Rath  12-1  9 9 9

8  L-Nashville Kitty, Seekman  12-1  4 5 6

STAR GAZED has been taking on better and may have dropped down to a winning situation tonight. STEPH’S MELODY came up empty but she’s in soft and drew well again. New driver. MCGARDEN MCEDEN has an easier field to try and out-close tonight and may do just that.

THIRD: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,900:

6  L!Always A Jewel, Gillespie  5-2  1 4 3

5  L-Mazeppa Hanover, Warren  3-1  1 10 5

7  Brianna Official, Anderson  7-2  *2 1 6

8  L!Fox Valley Scotch, Leonard  4-1  9 1 *3

1  L-A Tangible Lease, Smolin  8-1  4 8 7

4  LL+Pro Shooter, Daniel  12-1  3 3 2

3  L-Tamarac Stormie, De Long  15-1  6 6 6

2  L+Erica’s Blpssom, Turnbull  15-1  2 4 5

ALWAYS A JEWEL will likely races up-close in her Maywood debut. She winter-trained on a small track. MAZEPPA HANOVER was a winner first time on Lasix and may rush past this similar field. BRIANNA OFFICIAL could get another spot near the front where she might win this race,

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

7  L!Alexibray, Seekman  2-1  3 6 *1

2  L!Inxpressiblebeauty, Leonard  3-1  8 8 1

6  Liqueur, Warren  7-2  5 8 6

8  L-Main Squeeze, Anderson  6-1  7 3 3

4  L-It’s a Sham, Daniel  6-1  2 8 7

3  L-Jenjen, Rath  12-1  4 6 4

1  L+Dashing Majorette, Curtin  25-1  5 8 9

5  L-Just Winit, Carpenter  30-1  9 9 5

ALEXIBRAY looks to be in easier tonight and has the gate speed to gain early position. INXPRESSIBLEBEAUTY”S sulky had a flat tire. Mare can come up with a winning late move at times. LIQUEUR shifts over to Maywood where the $4,000 claimers aren’t as tough as they are at Balmoral.

FIFTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $4,000, NW $1,250 LAST 5, PURSE $2,800:

2  L-Colefederate, Kennedy  5-2  4 *4 6

5  L-Rejoiceandbeglad, Bastie  9-2  2 5 9

3  L-Bryn Tin Tin, De. Magee  4-1  5 7 3

9  L-Bluebird Muffler, Leonard  5-1  8 6 4

1  L-Tangible Hope, Anderson  8-1  6 9 9

7  L!Three New Dawns, Smolin  8-1  5 10 8

8  L-BS Jeffs Lilcorcona, Gillespie  12-1  8 7 3

4  L-All Dune, Seekman  15-1  8 8 5

6  L-M M West, Affrunti  15-1  8 5 9

COLEFEDERATE gets a helpful post change that could have him on or close to the lead. REJOICEANDBEGLAD raced improved and has a fair shot to get his first season victory. BRYN TIN TIN was stuck inside. He’s trying to win for the first time since 2012.

SIXTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, ICF, F & M, PURSE $4,500:

3  L-Dee Dee Sage, Carpenter  5-1  5 8 5

4  L-Cee Cee’s Delight, Warren  3-1  8 3 4

7  L!Helen’s Place Girl, Hiteman  7-3  8 5 6

2  L-Bust My Chops. Beyer  9-2  7 4 5

6  L+Odds On Dominica, Anderson  4-1  *2 6 7

1  L+Dolly Dune, Warren  8-1  6 8 7

8  L-Desiree Bellabella, Gillespie  12-1  5 5 6

5  L!Thedayyouhavemade, Curtin  15-1  6 5 8

DEE DEE SAGE has some back class and may be in soft enough to end her losing streak. CEE CEE’S DELIGHT has been getting early position and being a factor and she may do so again. HELEN’S PLACE GIRL could turn things around with this drop.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $4,100:

4  L!Marzy Bearzy, Warren  5-2  7 3 6

5  L-Prosper, Wilfong  7-2  *4 6 4

6  L-CG Head Turner, Curtin  5-1  3 3 3

3  L-Misspanderosajones, Anderson  4-1  8 6 8

8  L-Bettor’s Babe, Leonard  6-1  3 5 4

1  L-Another Temptation, Sc. Banks  8-1  2 8 8

2  L-Candy N Apples, De Long  8-1  5 7 8

7  L-Roseraire NZ, Kennedy  30-1  7 7 8

MARZY BARZY is well placed with the drop from a Hanover to a low-end conditioned pace. PROSPER first to go three-wide in last three starts. Mare is a threat to rally in time with a more favorable journey. CH HEAD TURNER could spring out and end up in a trifecta again.

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

3  L-Manny’s Z Tam, Leonard  5-2  4 9 2

2  L-Rachels Blackjack, Warren  3-1  5 6 *3

7  L!Too Tall Tamarac, De Long  4-1  4 8 5

1  L-CJ’s Real Deal, Curtin  6-1  3 8 5

9  L-Elijah’s Jet, Beyer  8-1  6 4 2

6  L-Valley Cam, Seekman  8-1  2 6 8

5  L-Eden Way, De. Magee  10-1  8 3 7

4  L-Speed Minister, Kennedy  20-1  7 6 4

8  Wisconsin’s Best, Husted  30-1  7 8 7

MANNY’S Z TAM was stuck inside. He may be in position to power past this time. RACHELS BLACKJACK can have the lead tonight and is a threat to go all the way. TOO TALL TAMARAC drew poorly but drops in with a price tag tonight where he looks dangerous.

NINTH: PACE, COND, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $5,600:

1  Don’t Tell Wayne, Leonard  7-5  *3 3 *1

2  Movin’ N Shakin, Wilfong  7-2  1 6 *1

5  Odds On Serpens, Hiteman  4-1  1 4 6

8  L-Bell Valley Tiger, Warren  6-1  *2 *1 8

6  L-Hyd-Dat Shooter, Carpenter  8-1  10 3 2

4  Prince Ponder, Gillespie  12-1  7 4 4

3  L+McGoots, Anderson  15-1  1 4 4

7  L+Cottonland Gem, De Long  15-1  7 5 3

DON’T TELL WAYNE was locked-in as the heavy favorite and deserves another chance. MOVIN’ N SHAKIN’ is in a spot to maybe repeat his wire-to-wire victory. ODDS ON SERPENS could battle the above for control. His two season victories have at Maywood at this same class.

TENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, PURSE $3,300:

1  L-Majestic Royale, Kennedy  7-2  2 2 5

3  L-Make It Work, Smolin  3-1  *3 *1 1

6  L-Greg And Flrx, Wilfong  4-1  4 7 8

9  L-Lazy Lizard, Warren  5-1  7 5 *7

7  L-Wang Dang Doodle, Leonard  8-1  7 5 *5

8  L-Parked Onda Street, Hiteman  8-1  5 4 3

2  Wes Mantooth, De. Magee  12-1  5 9 2

4  L!Richess Nestor, Gillespie  12-1  8 4 6

5  L-Stryker, Anderson  15-1  6 3 7

MAJESTIC ROYALE gets a spot on or near the lead much easier tonight and may get an overdue win. MAKE IT WORK has proved best last three times he has been in command. He may be there tonight. GREG AND FLEX had too much ground to try and make up. He is a consideration.

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

5  Just One Dance, Wilfong  3-1  *1 7 *3

6  L-Profile, Warren  4-1  2 3 8

3  L+Towne Believer, Daniel  5-1  1 3 3

2  L-Another Burbon, Leonard  9-2  4 1 2

8  L!Hopenptomises, Seekman  6-1  6 3 *1

1  Stephie Clay, De. Magee  8-1  1 2 6

7  L-Driven By Destiny, Anderson  8-1  4 2 6

9  Pownal Bay Magic, De Long  12-1  1 5 8

4  Be My Escape, Husted  30-1  5 7 5

JUST ONE DANCE took advantage of a great trip and may go out and get another. PROFILE is racing well with Warren and could go out and get the job done. TOWNE BELIEVER steps up a notch but mare is in top form right now.

  FOR FRIDAY, JULY 25 AT MAYWOOD PARK

Best bet: Seekin For Glamour (3rd race)

First Post-7:10 pm

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

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

4  L!Dunside Art, Warren  5-2  5 7 *7

2  +Dozer, Wilfong  3-1  1 *2 *1

7  +Vital Terror, Kennedy  4-1  1 1 6

6  L-Wildartiscape, De Long   9-2  8 3 4

1  L-Major Beach, Leonard  6-1  9 4 1

8  L+Set The Tempo, De. Magee  8-1  2 3 8

5  Bordo Bay, Anderson  15-1  9 7 3

3  L-Standingartfection, Husted  30-1  10 7 8

DUNSIDE ART drops back down to a claimer after being stuck behind poor cover. DOZER was an easy winner after getting away with a slow first half. Try and catch him again. VITAL TERROR steps up a notch but he’s sharp right now so consider.

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

1  LL-Rockin Reality, Seekman  2-1  5 4 2

5  Bubbala, De. Magee  6-1  1 6 5

3  Scootin Bubbles, Leonard  4-1  1 dnf 6

2  Parklane Glitter, Wilfong  9-2  2 4 x

4  L-Eloquence, Curtin  6-1  7 7 6

8  Flashy Dune, De Long  8-1  6 1 6

6  I See Success, Anderson  12-1  6 4 4

7  AJ’s Princess, Kennedy  12-1  5 x x

ROCKIN REALITY makes her career debut on Lasix. She’s the younger sister of Rockin Rumble (1:49.4). BUBBALA was a well-regarded yearling making only her seventh career start at the age of four. Her last qualifier was encouraging, however. SCOOTIN BUBBLES off a month but did qualify nicely on this track.

THIRD: PACE, CLMG $6,000, F & M, PURSE $3,600:

3  L-Seekin For Glamour, De Long  8-5  *1 8 4

6  L-Act Of Magic, Leonard  4-1  2 1 *3

2  L!Pierce My Heart, Anderson  6-1  7 5 4

4  L-Sun Dream, Warren  6-1  4 *3 2

1  L-Anightwithwilma, Wilfong  6-1  7 1 7

8  L-The Right Move, Carpenter  8-1  3 6 *2

5  Lil Miss Knuckles, De. Magee  12-1  6 5 1

7  L-WH Carmen, Curtin  12-1  5 2 5

SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR hasn’t been stopped in a claimer over the past two months and looks good for another. ACT OF MAGIC finished in a hurry one she shook loose and looks like the main danger. PIERCE MY HEART looks well placed with this drop and is a consideration.

FOURTH: PACE, COND, NW 1, PURSE $4,000:

4  He’s A Burbon, De Long  7-2  3 3 6

6  Call Me Muddy, Leonard  3-1  2 2 2

5  JM’s Double Terror, Rath  4-1  2 3 1

7  L-Lestrade Hanover, Curtin  6-1  6 3 7

8  Amsterdam Z Tam, Wilfong  6-1  4 3 5

2  LL-Serious Style, Seekman  8-1  2 3 8

1  Risky Reward, Hostetler  8-1 6 8 3

3  L+Prairie Ibeezabert, De. Magee  10-1  3 3 2

HE’S A BURBON has been racing better with De Long and may get his maiden win. CALL ME MUDDY has been second best in 5 of 7 season starts. One way ot another he may shed that role tonight. JM’S DOUBLE TERROR had a good try in a needed start and looks like a contender here.

FIFTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $3,000:

1  L-Freshman Phenonom, Anderson  3-1  1 6 3

2  L-Thunder Rises, Wilfong  4-1  4 1 6

5  Dick McTracy, Leonard  7-2  6 *1 *4

3  L-Equinox Seelster, Seekman  5-1  7 2 3

7  L-Five Cougars A, Kennedy  6-1  1 3 5

6  L+Another Beauty, De Long  8-1  1 3 5

4  L+Darn Skippie, Carpenter  12-1  3 2 7

9  L-Major Degree, Curtin  12-1  5 5 *2

8  Art’s Shadow, Hiteman  20-1  8 5 6

FRESHMAN PHENONOM may be in the right spot for another winning journey in this competitive race. THUNDER RISES switches back to Maywood and moves inside. Is that a winning combination? DICK MCTRACY may get better striking position and resume his winning ways.

SIXTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, PURSE $4,500:

7  L!Whirlwindiplomacy, Leonard  5-2  6 2 3

1  L-Crime Of Passion, De Long  7-2  9 7 8

3  L-Fox Valley Mahalo, Warren  5-1  7 3 4

5  L-Nash Gram, Anderson  4-1  2 4 9

4  L-Yankee Doodle Jim, Smolin  6-1  3 8 5

2  L-Golden-Nugget, Kennedy  8-1  8 7 6

8  L!Ringo’s Z Tam, Wilfong  10-1  6 2 6

6  L-SS Tommy Turner, Carpenter  15-1  5 5 8

WHIRLWINDIPLOMACY was raced easy in a needed start and may power past this time. CRIME OF PASSION has back class and tonight gets a rare start from the inside. FOX VALLEY MAHALO may get the front or the cover he lacked so consider.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $4,000 LAST 5, PURSE $6,400:

4  L-Kansas Wildcat, Carpenter  3-1  2 6 6

9  L!Long Term, De Long  5-1  8 6 5

2  L-Chewy Baca, Leonard  9-2  7 3 9

7  Blooming Genius, Seekman  4-1  6 7 7

3  L+Big Turn On, Anderson  6-1  1 *6 1

1  L-Alequash Hotspur, Curtin  8-1  5 4 *1

5  L+Memory King, Kennedy  12-1  *2 3 2

8  +CJ’s Sweet Racer, Warren  15-1  1 2 4

6  L-Employess Go Wild, Wilfong  12-1  2 *1 2

KANSAS WILDCAT finished strong once he got a clear path. Veteran gets my vote in this open race. LONG TERM returns to Illinois after an unsatisfactory campaign out east. He proved best in his last Maywood start and it was against similar. CHEWY BACA shouldn’t be too far behind again with this favorable post change.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND, NW $4,000, PURSE $6,400:

1  L+Mortal Combat, Warren  3-1  *1 6 6

3  L-Real Hero, Anderson  7-2  2 *5 *3

4  L-Cantholdmebackmack, Leonard  4-1  5 *1 *2

5  Jude Hall, De Long  5-1  3 *4 3

2  L-So Be It, Kennedy  6-1  6 1 3

9  L-M T Nester, Carpenter  8-1  3 *2 2

8  L+Ricky Bobbie, Wilfong  15-1  1 1 1

6  Pure Smoke, Seekman  15-1  8 6 *1

7  L-Chasing Connor, Smolin  15-1  4 1 8

MORTAL COMBAT bet down like a sure thing for his new connection and romped despite an early break. REAL HERO trying hard for his initial season victory and another big effort may get it. CANTHOLDMEBACKMACK came on strong and might have rushed past if he didn’t go off-stride.

NINTH: PACE, COND, NW $9,500 LAST 5, PURSE $9,000:

2  L+Firstclassallthway, De Long  2-1  *1 *3 2

4  L-Kanaris, Seekman  5-2  *1 9 3

3  L-Boi, Smolin  5-1  2 5 2

6  LTink And Tiger, Warren  9-2  5 5 1

1  L-At Max Speed, De. Magee  6-1  *2 1 3

7  L-Crankin’ It Up, Wilfong  15-1  3 7 8

8  L-Turn It Up Loud, Leonard  15-1  7 1 9

5  Gypsy Leather, Anderson  20-1  6 6 7

FIRSTCLASSALLTHWAY showed his class and can zip out and be on or close to the front again. KANARIS looks like he was well-placed last week and proved so. He may battle the above for command. BOI raced well and could be in position to land again in the gimmicks.

TENTH: PACE, COND, NW $9,500 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $9,100:

4  Auniqueaquistion, De Long  2-1  5 2 *6

2  +Poco Granny, Warren  3-1  1 9 4

1  Belluga Babe, Anderson  4-1  3 6 1

3  +Tweeds Fly N Star, Leonard  6-1  5 *1 2

7  L-Summer Party, De. Magee  12-1  4 3 7

6  L+Don’t Flash Me, Wilfong  12-1  9 7 7

9  L+Weekend Update, Kennedy  12-1  2 6 7

5  L-Edita Hanover, Seekman  15-1  6 7 *1

8  L+Arts-Rockstar, Curtin  20-1  6 3 3

AUNIQUEAQUISTION moves in where she could be in position this time to power past. POCO GRANNY has fared well at Maywood and is a capable fit from the inside tonight. BELLUGA BABE can get another trip near the front and be a factor.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, PURSE $3,700:

3  L-Gram Legend, Leonard  3-1  7 1 7

1  L-Lovedancinwithyou, Kennedy  7-2  *4 3 5

5  L-Fox Valley Hotstuf, Curtin  9-2  3 8 6

9  L-Dontdoubtthelakers, Anderson  4-1  5 *2 9

8  Atomic Art, De Long  8-1  6 4 7

4  L-Nitrogen Fuse, De. Magee  8-1  8 *2 7

2  L-Bummed Out, Warren  10-1  2 5 3

7  L!Passion For Today, Seekman  15-1  6 5 3

6  L-Toledo Bend Gator, Wilfong  20-1  7 8 7

GRAM LEGEND had Maywood’s 8-hole in last two. He’s in a good spot to come away a winner tonight. LOVEDANCINWITHYOU could have the lead or maybe end up with a winning pocket trip. FOX VALLEY HOTSTUF battled hard first over and was only a neck short. Respect his chances.

TWELFTH: PACE, COND, NW $4,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $6,400:

9  L-Ladybones, De Long  4-1  6 2 5

6  L!Sleazy Does It, Warren  3-1  9 5 3

4  L-Muy Caliente, Curtin  7-2  3 2 6

1  L-Triple Lane Melody, Wilfong  6-1  *7 1 2

2  L-Mystical MJ, Carpenter  8-1  4 3 2

7  L-Sealark Hanover, Leonard  6-1  1 3 8

6  L+Makena Cat, De. Magee  12-1  *1 2 8

3  L-Mackenzie’s Power, Kennedy  15-1  8 7 9

8  Six Pack Annie, Rath  15-1  3 4 2

LADYBONES ended up in poor position to try and mount a rally. Maybe the trip will go her way this time. SLEAZY DOES IT has been chasing better and has a big shot with this drop. MUY CALIENTE had another big effort in defeat. Mare may end her losing streak tonight.

THIRTEENTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, PURSE $4,200:

6  L-Don’t Worry B Happy, Warren  2-1  5 4 4

5  L+Goose On The Rocks, Seekman  3-1  2 9 3

3  L-Dade Hall, Anderson  9-2  3 4 7

2  L-Fox Valley George, Smolin  6-1  7 3 3

1  L!Larry’s Place, Curtin  8-1  9 5 1

9  L!Plenty Of Spunk, Leonard  12-1  9 6 2

4  L-Krusty The Clown, Wilfong  15-1  7 7 4

6  L-Cinnamon Spider, Beyer  15-1  4 4 7

7  L-Nightinthebox, Kennedy  20-1  6 8 8

DON’T WORRY B HAPPY had a wide mile in his first start back in almost a month. He takes another drop tonight. GOOSE ON THE ROCKS could sprint out in a hurry again making him a possibility. DADE HALL hurt by the 8-hole. Overdue pacer gets a rare start from an inside slot.
