Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  FOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31 AT MAYWOOD

Best bet: Make It Work (1st race)

First Post-7:10 pm

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

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

2  L!Make It Work, Leonard  8-5  7 4 *1

5  L-Colechester, Carpenter  9-2  4 2 2

1  L-Richess Nestor, Affrunti  4-1  2 4 *1

8  L-Gram Legend, De Long  5-1  8 6 7

6  L!AJ Get’s The Money, Oosting  8-1  94 5

7  +Wes Mantooth, Wilfong  12-1  3 5 2

4  Boneire’s Bonanza, De. Magee  12-1  5 7 2

3  L-Captain Obvious, R. Warren  15-1  7 5 1

MAKE IT WORK is back down to where he was winning and can again. COLECHESTER was shuffled out of contention. He can go out and be a factor. RICHESS NESTOR may be in better position to get the job done.

SECOND: PACE, COND, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, PURSE $4,200:

8  !DuPage’s Z Tam, Leonard  2-1  5 4 2

4  L-Regal Honor, De. Magee  9-2  7 3 5

5  Santana Long Legs, Wilfong  4-1  7 2 6

6  !Bright Future, Anderson  6-1  6 6 9

1  Independent Dude, Curtin  6-1  2 8 3

2  L-Joey’s Wings, De Long  8-1  5 5 x

3  L-Little Hank, Hiteman  12-1  8 4 10

7  L-Mystical Shooter, Oosting  12-1  5 5 10

DUPAGE’S Z TAM out of stakes and into a much, much softer spot despite his post. REGAL HONOR was too far back leaving from the 8-hole. He may seek and get a spot up-close. SANTANA LONG LEGS may need the cover he lacked to win it.

THIRD: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $3,400:

1  L!Ringo’s Z Tam, R. Warren  8-5  3 2 4

3  L-Too Tall Tamarac, Leonard  4-1  4 3 1

6  Barbosa, De Long  6-1  6 7 3

5  Blue Truth, Rogers  6-1  2 7 4

9  L-Intrepid Skyway, Ri. Magee  8-1  4 1 3

8  L!Hyd-Dat Shooter, Carpenter  12-1  7 6 5

2  L-Eden Way, Ri. Magee  12-1  8 8 *6

4  L-CJ’s Real Deal, Curtin  15-1  8 7 5

7  L-Incredible Item, Beyer  15-1  7 3 9

RINGO’S Z TAM should relish the drop to a claimer and this significant post change. TOO TALL TAMARAC wasn’t in position to contend. That could change here.  BARBOSA may come for a slice of the gimmicks.

FOURTH: PAC E, COND, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $5,600:

1  L-Im So Handsome, De Long  2-1  *2 *1 3

4  L-Splended Party, De. Magee  3-1  2 *1 *1

2  L-Heza A Chief, T. Warren  4-1  3 10 5

8  L+Desperado Alibi, Carpenter  6-1  4 *1 5

3  Fox Valley Ibis, Hiteman  8-1  4 3 8

7  Dr Snow, Leonard  10-1  6 3 3

5  L-Movin’ N Shakin, Wilfong  10-1  4 7 3

6  L-Serious Style, Seekman  15-1  5 5 7

IM SO HANDSOME went all the way the last time he had command and he could have it tonight. SPLENDED PARTY was too far back. He’s a threat to rally past. HEZA A CHIEF will use his speed from the inside to likely be in the thick of it.

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

4  L-Dontdoubtthelakers, T. Warren  3-1  *2 *1 2

5  Dick McTracy, Leonard  4-1  3 5 1

3  L-Dot’s Bigboy, De Long  7-2  1 9 3

1  L-Major Degree, Curtin  5-1  2 1 4

8  L-Bell Valley Tiger, R. Warren  8-1  4 7 *1

2  L+Another Beauty, Oosting  8-1  *1 6 6

7  L+Bryn Bryn Tin, Altepeter  12-1  4 2 8

8  L-Josting Jack, Carpenter  15-1  5 2 5

5  Do Me Bliss, Rath  15-1  7 3 3

DONTDOUBTTHELAKERS is back in top form and may not give way this time. DICK MCTRACY wins his share at this class and is a possibility to zip past. DOT’S BIGBOY does well at Maywood with De Long and might prove best again.

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

2  L-So Be It, Oosting  3-1  5 7 6

3  L!Nash Gram, Leonard  7-2  8 5 10

8  L!Meadowbrook Samson, Hiteman  4-1  4 4 8

7  L-At Max Speed, T. Warren  6-1  9 4 4

9  L-Yankee Doodle Jim, Carpenter  6-1  2 5 5

5  L!Greg And Flex, Curtin  8-1  5 5 6

4  CJ’s Sweet Racer, De Long  12-1  4 7 2

1  L-Cinnamon Spider, Anderson  15-1  9 6 8

6  NJ’s Go Johnny Go, Rogers  15-1  7 8 6

SO BE IT was locked-in and pushed back. A favorable journey could see him prevail. NASH GRAM sheds 8-hole to go along with the drop and that’s a nice combination. MEADOWBROOK SAMPSON is in easier but post is the concern.

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

1  L+Sexy Card Shark, T. Warren  3-1  6 *1 2

6  L!Sleazy Does It, Oosting  5-2  7 *2 *2

2  L+Four Hour Nap, De Long  5-1  2 7 *2

3  All Pink, De, Magee  9-2  5 *1 2

5  L+McKenzie’s Power, Anderson10-1  1 7 5

4  L-Cole Blue, Curtin  12-1  8 1 8

7  L-Phoebic Princess, Wilfong  12-1  6 5 1

9  L-Misspanderosajones, Leonard  15-1  5 6 2

8  Little Anna Mae, Hiteman  15-1  9 8 8

SEXY CARD SHARK shifts back to the track where she went wire-to-wire and may again. SLEAZY DOES IT drops and looks capable with the striking position she lacked.  FOUR HOUR NAP is in tougher however her speed from the inside could see her contend.

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

2  L-MJ’s Last Dance, C. Leonard   3-1  4 *1 10

6  L-Feel Like Dancing, Wilfong  7-2  2 1 *2

1  Belluga Babe, Seekman  6-1  8 4 5

4  L-Blazing Fury, De Long  9-2  *5 3 7

9  L-Muy Caliente, De. Magee  8-1  1 7 2

5  L+Morwyn Hanover, R. Warren  8-1  1 7 8

3  L-Fox Valley Shriver, Krueger  8-1  8 1 6

8  L+Candy N Apples, T. Warren  12-1  *2 3 4

7  Tweeds Fly N Star, Oosting  12-1   7 8

MJ’S LAST DANCE lacked racing room. Mare sheds 8-slot for the 2 tonight. FEEL LIKE DANCING can shoot out again and maybe this up-close trip goes her way. BELLUGA BABE was too far behind. That shouldn’t be a problem tonight.

NINTH: PACE, CLMG $10,000, PURSE $5,400:

1  L-Rejoiceandbeglad, R. Warren  3-1  *4 2 1

4  L-Chewy Baca, Leonard  7-2  1 *2 *1

3  L!Crime Of Passion, De Long  4-1  3 *5 2

6  L+Stryker, Oosting  5-1  *1 *1 1

2  L!Employess Go Wild, Carpenter  6-1  10 8 3

7  Atomic Art, Seekman  8-1  3 5 3

8  L-Western Deal, Krueger  8-1  8 3 1

5  L!Ricky Bobbie, Curtin  15-1  9 6 7

REJOICEANDBEGLAD was first to go three-wide ion last two. Maybe he can clear the speed tonight. CHEWY BACA a winner when dropped to this class and can’t be overlooked again. CRIME OF PASSION has back class. Cut a fast pace qualifying in the slop at Balmoral.

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

9  L-Jerrico, Oosting  7-2  5 7 7

4  L-Plenty Of Spunk, Leonard  9-2  5 8 5

5  L!Cest La Vie, Anderson  5-1  7 *1 3

1  L-Chasing Connor, T. Warren  4-1  2 *6 4

2  L-Montero Blue Chip, Seekman  6-1  3 3 6

7  L+Gypsy Leather, Curtin  8-1  1 2 7

3  L-Sporty Gypsy, Hiteman  8-1  7 *1 6

8  L-Fox Valley George, De Long  12-1  5 4 8

6  L-Finn Jet, R. Magee  15-1  8 1 1

JERRICO was stuck inside and pushed back. He’s reunited with Oosting tonight. PLENTY OF SPUNK has shown he can win at this class ad could be in better position to do so this time. CEST LA VIE was in too tough in Indiana. That’s not the case tonight.

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

4  !Auniqueaquisition, Hiteman  5-2  9 5 4

5  L-Mystical MJ, Oosting  4-1  3 4 6

6  L!Skinny Jeans, Carpenter  5-1  6 1 5

2  L+Steph’s Place, C. Leonard  6-1  1 6 4

1  L+The Right Move, Carpenter  6-1  3 3 *1

8  L-Rev Me Up, P’Pool  8-1  *6 9 2

3  L-Triple Lane Melody, T. Warren  10-1  3 1 7

7  L-Dolly Dune, Seekman  12-1  5 2 2

8  L-Summer Party, De Long  12-1  2 7 9

AUNIQUEAQUISITION is back in his old barn who has her well placed with this significant drop. MYSTICIAL MJ was never in contention. She has a fair shot to get up in time. SKINNY JEANS at her best near the front on this track and she wasn’t there last week.

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

4  Part Time, De. Magee  7-2  7 3 4

2  L!Boogie Nights, Hiteman  5-2  8 6 9

3  L-Krusty The Clown, Wilfong  4-1  3 2 9

6  L-Dade Hall, T. Warren  5-1  8 3 4

9  L!Smooth Transition, De Long  8-1  2 6 7

8  L-Donald Himself, Leonard  10-1  8 7 2

7  L+Fox Valley Hotstuf, Seekman  12-1  1 7 9

1  Pansflying, Oosting  20-1  9 8 8

5  L-Polar Bear, Anderson  20-1  6 6 8

PART TIME didn’t leave, didn’t threaten. He may have to be caught tonight. BOOGIE NIGHTS takes another drop after a series of races from outside posts. He’s the danger. KRUSTY THE CLOWN ‘S last two have been much better. He’s a consideration.

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

9  !Dunside Art, T. Warren  5-1  7 3 2

1  L-Rachels Blacjjack, Oosting  3-1  *6 2 3

2  L-Innocent Victim, Wilfong  6-1  7 2 8

4  L-Doc’s Deal, Seekman  4-1  3 4 1

3  Capital Wiz, Leonard  8-1  9 2 3

8  L-Bummed Out, De. Magee  10-1  2 4 3

5  L-Golden-Nugget, Anderson  10-1  5 9 5

6  L-Cottonland Gem, Carpenter  20-1  7 7 4

7  L-Passion For Today, De Long  25-1  8 8 6

DUNESIDE ART is back down to where he can do some good again. RACHELS BLACKJACK used hard and often before folding. He has a big shot here. INNOCENT VICTIM is a good fit tonight if he doesn’t need another start.
