Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

 THURSDAY, MARCH 26 AT MAYWOOD

Best Bet: Financial Effort (2nd race)

First Post 7:30 pm

FIRST: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, PURSE $2,750:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

2  L-Make It Work, Oosting  2-1  *2 2 4

1  L-Stryker, Leonard  5-2  1 7 1

3  L-TJ’s Rocky, T. Curtin  3-1  3 3 *2

6  L-JHS, Smolin  9-2  2 2 5

7  L!Cuatro Cinco, Carpenter  6-1  7 2 1

4  L-Darn Skippie, T. Warren  20-1  5 6 1

5  L-Larry’s Place, Seekman  25-1  6 5 8

MAKE IT WORK had a tough trip when he dropped a photo. Beaten choice may get to the front and make amends. STRYKER is a frequent winner at Maywood at this class and he’s in a very good spot for another. TJ’S ROCKY another who fares well on this track, especially in a $4,000 claimer.

SECOND: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,800:

3  Ataway Samantha, Widger  2-1  4 2 6

2  L-Onelesslonelygirl, Leonard  5-2  2 4 2

6  L-Transplanted, Oosting  3-1  3 *3 5

7  L-Princess Joventina, De. Magee  6-1  5 4 6

5  L-Scootin Bubbles, T. Curtin  6-1  5 4 4

4  L-Alaughandasmile, P. Curtin  15-1  6 7 5

1  Mizmealibit, M. Finn  15-1  7 6 9

ATAWAY SAMANTHA’S tough trip its toll. A favorable journey could see her have success. ONELESSLONELYGIRL can sprint out and get another trip on or close to the front. Big shot. TRANSPLANTED gets first local start from an outside slot where mare will have to pick it up a notch.

THIRD: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, PURSE $2,750:

1  L-Fox Valley Hotstuf, Seekman  3-1  4 5 *3

7  L-Golden-Nugget, Widger  2-1  1 *1 1

3  L-Lovedancinwithyou, Oosting  5-2  *2 2 3

2  L+Gram Legend, De Long  4-1  *1 7 6

4  L-Dylan Rocks, Leonard  12-1  7 4 7

5  L-Fox Valley Bobbijo, R. Warren  15-1  9 5 5

6  L+Captain Obvious, P. Curtin  15-1  7 4 2

FOX HOTSTUF gets a huge post shift and can be racing up-close this time. GOLDEN-NUGGET is in top form and may get to the front again and make it four in a row. LOVEDANCINWITHYOU is a consistent threat and another who must be considered here.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,500:

5  LL-Official Court, De Long  9-5  6 7 *2

4  Insidedus Sidney, P. Curtin  7-2  4 6 1

2  Shifting Interlude, T. Curtin  4-1  8 *6 2

3  Dashing For Home, Rath  5-1  3 3 3

7  Mystery Maid, Smolin  6-1  1 7 6

6  Ogs Tux Is Shining, De. Magee  8-1  4 6 4

1  Dakota Run, Oosting  15-1  3 4 7

1a  Dakota Awe, Leonard  15-1  3 4 7

OFFICIAL COURT is a first time Lasix user dropping to a soft claimer tonight. Filly got her season win earlier at Maywood. INSIDEOUS SIDNEY can go out and get a spot near the front again and maybe to more with it this time. SHIFTING INTERLUDE needed her last and is in a good spot for her new barn.

FIFTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, ICF, F & M, PURSE $2.750:

1  L-Shez A Swift, Smolin  9-5  4 *2 7 3

3  L-Cee Cee’s Delight, Carpenter  5-1  1 2 7

2  Inxpressiblebeauty, Oosting  3-1  2 5 6

5  L+Bust My Chops, Leonard  9-2  *1 7 2

4  L!Na Zdrowie, T. Warren  6-1  5 2 4

7  L!Odds On Dominica, Seekman  10-1  6 3 *4

6  L+Steph’s Melody, De Long  12-1  1 6 3

SHEZ A SWIFT gets a rare start from the inside where she could dictate the fractions and maybe hold on. CEE CEE’S DELIGHT was too far back. That could change here. INXPRESSIBLEBEAUTY is overdue to overtake a field. Oosting's pick over the 4-horse.

SIXTH: PACE, COND, NW $4,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $5,900:

1  L!Financial Effort, Leonard  8-5  8 9 *1

2  L+Makena Cat, Carpenter  4-1  3 *1 6

6  L-Cole Blue, Smolin  9-2  4 3 8

7  L-Togetherforeverm Oosting  6-1  3 3 1

3  L-Zumba, De Long  8-1  7 3 3

5  L+Sister’s Keeper, Seekman  6-1  *1 6 4

4  L+Life On The Row, Widger  8-1  1 3 3

FINANCIAL EFFORT breezed last time she was in this cheap and she could do the same tonight. MAKENA CAT couldn’t clear with an early three-wide move. A more favorable journey is likely. COLE BLUE, as usual, will have to be caught.

SEVENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, PURSE $2,800:

1  L-Seekin For Glamour, Seekman  3-1  *2 *4 2

8  L-Steph’s Place, Leonard  7-2  *1 6 1

4  Val’s Way, Widger  6-1  10 2 6

9  L!Anightwithwilma, T. Curtin  9-2  2 5 1

7  L-Yes We Did, T. Warren  6-1  3 4 3

3  L-Aubession, Oosting  8-1  5 2 1

5  Our Miss Special, Smolin  8-1  *6 *8 *4

6  L-Fortune’s Smile, R. Warren  15-1  4 3 2

2  L-Star Gazed, Carpenter  20-1  3 8 5

SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR go nipped again. Maybe tonight she can carry her to the wire and make amends. STEPH’S PLACE was claimed back by her winning stable. Post he concern but she can leave well. VAL’S WAY is back on her home track and at a low level.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $3,100:

5  L-Yes Indeedee, Seekman  2-1  *3 *1 *7

2  +Dakota Snow, Anderson  3-1  *6 2 2

4  Desi Dune, T. Warren  5-2  2 2 *1

1  Mae Flynn, Rath  8-1  5 6 1

6  Stephie Clay, T. Curtin  8-1  4 7 4

7  L-Towne Believer, Oosting  10-1  6 7 10

3  +Flashy Dune, Leonard  12-1  1 9 6

YES INDEEDEE had to work too hard to make the top and was on empty in the lane. Catch her again. DAKOTA SNOW steps up but mare had the 8-hole in last 3 starts. She’s sitting pretty here. DESI DUNE is another racing well who can zip out and be a major factor.

NINTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW $1,150 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $2,300:

9  L-Primrose Path,Seekman  5-1  5 4 8

5  L!It’s A Sham, T. Curtin  3-1  5 3 8

1  L!Thedayyouhavemade, Smolin  7-2  4 4 6

7  L-Miss Rich Britches, Oosting  9-2  2 6 4

3  L-Nashville Kitty, Leonard  6-2  2 4 5

2  L!Roseraire MZ, T. Curtin  8-1  7 6 3

4  L-Dashing Majorette, Widger  10-1  3 9 5

6  Fancy Too, Anderson  15-1  4 7 6

8  L-Glitter Jolt, R. Warren  25-1  6 4 6

PRIMROSE PATH got a great trip behind a heavy favorite but that mare had enough by the three-quarters. Consider again. IT’S A SLAM is in easier and we could see much better from her. THEDAYYOUHAVEMADE is in easier and can get another up-close journey.
