Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

 FOR FRIDAY, MAY 6 AT HAWTHORNE

Best bet: We Rob Banks (4th race)

First Post-7:20 pm

FIRST: TROT, COND, NW 1, PURSE $4,500:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

1  Surviver DI, Searle  3-1  2 5 3

9  Psychic Survior, Leonard  7-2  1 1 1

7  !Awfully Emotional, Brink  4-1  1 4 3

5  Primed N Powerful, F. Patton  9-2  1 6 7

2  !All About Cowboys, Krueger  8-1  2 3 7

4  L-PJ Boy, Rogers  8-1  2 5 4

3  +Mack Spirit, P. Curtin  12-1  5 4 3

10  +Just Like Paradise, Wilfong  15-1  5 5 3

8  Budda Pest, Rath  25-1  6 6 3

6  Special Occasion, Sc. Banks  25-1  5 6 10

SURVIVER DI comes off a big try at Hoosier and sheds their 10-hole for Hawthorne’s one-slot. PSYCHIC SURVIVOR prepped well for this and Casey chose over the above.  AWFULLY EMOTIONAL showed ability as a freshman and prepped well for this start.

SECOND: PAE, CLMG HANDICAP, $5,000-$7,500, F & M, PURSE $5,000:

4  L-Moon Bay Dancer, T. Warren  3-1  3 5 4

8  L!Fox Valley Pippa, Leonard  7-2  7 *1 10

6  L-Shez A Swift, Seekman  4-1  *3 6 2

2  L!Lil Miss Knuckles, Krueger  9-2  2 *9 1

5  L+Ms Solongbyebye, Petrilli  5-1  *1 1 *1

7  L!O Come On Now, Wilfong  8-1  6 1 *5

1  L+Perfectly Clear, P. Curtin  12-1  5 7 2

3  Lovers Holiday, R. Warren  20-1  7 6 6

MOON BAY DANCER raced well in Indiana after a needed start and fits nicely here. FOX VALLEY PIPPA is back down where she may make the top and not be collared. SHEZ A SWIFT was a consistent threat on the Chicago circuit. Respect her chances.

THIRD: TROT, COND, NW 2 OR 3 RACES, PURSE $5,000:

6  !Pastor Clint, Leonard  2-1  8 6 8

7  !Praise Singer, Brink  7-2  1 2 9

9  !Powerful Father, T. Warren  9-2  3 4 8

10  L!Speedy Rendezvous, Prather  6-1  3 5 10

5  Stirling Emissary, Seekman  8-1  8 6 2

2  +Chocolate Hare, Sc. Banks  12-1  1 2 4

8  Homershobbyhorse, Rogers  15-1  5 4 4

4  Infared, Rath  20-1  4 7 6

3  +Swift Cougart, J. Patton  20-1  5 9 10

1  +Song Of The Swan, F.. Patton  25-1  6 1 2

PASTOR CLINT was last year’s Cardinal freshman champion and had been facing better in Pennsylvania. PRAISE SINGER qualified like she might be ready. Filly is from a winning barn. POWERFUL FATHER a stable-mate of the above. He was a Cardinal elimination winner at two.

FOURTH: PACE, COND, NW 1, PURSE $4,500:

8  We Rob Banks, Leonard  9-5  4 3 2

7  Sand Shocker, Krueger  4-1  4 6 10

6  L-Sagebrush Sam, Rogers  5-1  3 2 2

4  Parity, Seekman  6-1  3 6 8

5  L-AJ’s Prince, Wilfong  8-1  5 6 3

3  Iyq Yqr, Watson  12-1  2 5 x

10  L-Sagebrush Sonny, Einhaus  15-1  4 *8 4

1  +Kitty Kocktail, R. Warren  15-1  6 x x

9  L-Dumas Gram, T. Warren  25-1  10 9 5

2  +Hash-Tag Swag, P. Curtin  25-1  6 x x

WE ROB BANKS finished well in Indiana after his needed initial career start. He could zoom past this field. SAND SHOCKER hurt by slow starts. Maybe he’ll try to follow-up the above. SAGEBRUSH SAM could get a slice of these gimmicks.

FIFTH: PACE, COND, NW 1, F & M, PURSE $4,500:

4  See Me Cruise, T. Warren  4-1  8 6 7

3  L!Exclusive Design, Leonard  3-1  2 4 5

7  Leenah Pearl, Shenan  7-2  5 6 4

9  Pretty Stella, R. Warren  8-1  4 8 5

1  L-Mekka, Krueger  6-1  5 2 6

2  Team Leader, Wilfong  8-1  4 6 6

6  +Gorgeous Dune, P. Curtin  12-1  3 5 5

10  Lacarmeliliana, Avenatti 15-1  3 10 9

8  !Melodies That Rock, R. Magee  15-1  6 7 5

7  +Sagebrush Shelly, J. Patton  20-1  6 x x7

SEE ME CRUISE drew poorly in his first two lifetime starts. Filly is in a better spot for her local bow. EXCLUSIVE DESIGN’S latest Springfield qualifier was encouraging. She fits well if he doesn’t need the outing. LEENAH PEARL showed some speed in last and may be racing up-close again.

SIXTH: TROT, COND, NW $2,500 LAST 5, AE: NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $4,500:

4  L-Neversettleforless, Wilfong  7-2  5 6 5

5  L-Macie Rae, Rogers  9-2  1 2 6

6  !Mystic Flower, Lake  4-1  4 2 *2

2  LL!Wrightwood, Leonard  6-1  2 8 10

9  !Trot Fudge Sundae, Seekman  5-1  6 3 9

7  L+Defend The Rock, RS Finn  8-1  10 3 1

8  L+Quantum Uptown Boy, Petrilli  8-1  *3 2 6

1  L!Chocolate Surprise, Watson  12-1  5 4 9

3  L!Laser Lucy, T. Warren  15-1  6 3 7

NEVERSETTLEFORLESS returns to the track where she won earlier. Mare is a good fir against this field. MACIE RAE had a big downstate qualifier but does she need this start? MYSTIC FLOWER has been on half-milers. Catch her.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $1,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $4,000:

7  !Windy City Diane, R. Warren  3-1  6 4 9

8  L-Pretty Place, Searle  7-2  4 8 7

1  L-Weekend Update, Leonard  4-1  1 6 9

9  L!Steph’s Place, Sc, Banks  5-1  5 1 10

3  L-Peacelovepace, Wilfong  8-1  4 6 7

6  L!Two Green Peppers, Shehan  8-1  4 9 6

4  L-Cee Cee’s Delight, Krueger  12-1  2 5 8

5  L-Always Reese, Rath  15-1  3 9 7

2  L+Sea Bug, Anthrop  15-1  5 7 dnf

6  L!Two Green Peppers, Shehan  8-1  4 9 6

WI8NDY CITY DIANE may be in cheap enough to handle this field. PRETTY PLACE likely needed her last two in Indiana. Mare may rally in time. WEEKEND UPDATE could be up-close throughout. Layoff is the concern.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND,. NW $2,500 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $4,500:

6  L+Excelerated Speed, T. Warren  9-5  2 1 10

1  L+Joyful Game, Krueger  7-2  5 4 5

8  L-Earthly Desire, Seekman  9-2  1 5 2

4  +Lizzabelle, Leonard  6-1  3 1 6

9  L+B N A Starrr, Shenan  8-1  4 3 1

3  L!Incredible Filly, Rogers  12-1  4 9 8

2  L-Another Temptation, Sc Banks  12-1  1 9 10

5  L!Fox Valley Kit, P. Curtin  20-1  10 10 4

7  L-Kiss On The Lips, Longo  20-1  9 6 6

EXCELERATED SPEED had a big effort in Indiana following her layoff. JOYFUL GAME could find Hawthorne’s stretch to her liking and rally past. EARTHY DESIRE overcame Hoosier’s 10-hole. She could get early position here as well.

NINTH: PACE, COND, NW 2, F & M, PURSE $5,000:

2  Likeafireballshot, Ja. Finn  3-1  10 5 2

7  Dandy’s Diva, T. Warren  7-2  6 *1 5

5  Narcissistic, Shelan  4-1  6 4 3

6  Rocknroll Hoochcoo, P. Curtin  8-1  6 5 2

9  !Sara’s Terror, Sc. Banks  8-1  5 4 4

1  Ashlee’s Fine Lady, Krueger  12-1  8 2 3

3  LK’s Nancy Lee, Wilfong  12-1  6 1 4

10  Backwood’s Barbie, Rogers  12-1  2 9 *7

8  Jiggles The Clown, Leonard  12-1  9 6 *3

4  L-Girls Girls Girls, R. Warren  15-1  9 11 6

LIKEAFIREBALLSHOT finds an easier field for her Illinois return. DANDY’S DIVA was too far back in a needed outing. She’s a danger here. NARCISSISTIC hurt by quick first quarter last time. Filly benefits from those two April starts.

TENTH: PACE, COND, NW $9,001, LAST 5 STARTS, F & M, PURSE $7,000:

2  L+Sir Lehigh Z Tam, T. Warren  3-1  *4 5 6

6  L+Feel Like Dancing, Wilfong  4-1  1 5 2

9  L!Flick A Fly, Leonard  5-1  5 8 1

7  L!Young American, Petreilli  6-1  2 3 3

5  L+Heyhey Mahannah, Shenan  6-1  1 6 3

4  L!Prosper, P. Curtin  8-1  3 2 3

3  L+Sure Yo Are, Lakei  12-1  1 5 3

8  L!Kesons Avaia, Krueger  16-1  *8 6 1

1  L+Mystical MJ, Rogers  15-1  1 6 1

10  L+Pacifire, Seekman  20-1  *5 4 *1

SIR LEHIGH Z TAM has some back class. Overdue mare may win this open race. FEEL LIKE DANCING could get to the top again and hold off another field. FLICK A FLY bows for a new stable. Eastern invader did miss the month of April.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $4,000, NW RACE LAST 4, F & M, PURSE $4,000:

2  L!Carmen O, Leonard  2-1  2 5 6

1  L-Make Way, Sc. Banks  3-1  8 5 4

9  L!Our Miss Leah, R. Warren  6-1  5 7 4

7  L!Babyshoebuyer, T. Warren  6-1  9 6 8

5  L!Miss Pat Weisar, T. Warren  8-1  8 9 4

10  L!Desiree Bellabella, Affrunti  12-1  9 3 8

6  L+Onelesslonelygirl, Lake  15-1  5 9 4

4  !First To Arrive, Wilfong  15-1  7 6 10

3  L!Getoutthewayanmove, Seekman  25-1  10 10 8

6  L!Shakeittothemoon, Avenatti  25-1  10 9 10

CARMEN O hurt by slow starts at Hoosier. She may power past in time for her new driver here. MAKE WAY was battling tougher earlier in Ohio and is well placed tonight. OUR MISS LEAH should be better against this softer field.

TWELFTH: PACE, COND, NW $1,000 LAST5, F & M, PURSE $4,000:

6  L!Extravagant Art, Leonard  8-5  4 6 7

7  L!Fox Valley George, Krueger  5-1  9 9 1

9  L-Crankin It Up, Wilfong  4-1  4 5 6

10  L-Ricky Bobbie, T. Warren  8-1  2 2 5

4  L!Sporty Gypsy, Rogers  12-1  10 6 8

1  L-Acting Captain, Lake  8-1  1 1 *6

8  L-NJ’s Go Johnny Go, F. Patton  15-1  2 5 7

5  Realeewantiwin, Seekman  15-1  5 6 3

3  L-Rascal Flatter, Petreilli  15-1  5 8 5

2  L!Big Moon Riziing, R. Warren  20-1  4 5 5

EXTRAVAGANT ART drops into a softer spot after a trio of starts at Hoosier. FOX VALLEY GEORGE another dropper who faced tougher in Indiana. Consider. CRANKIN IT UP is back from Ohio and appears to be well placed here.
