Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  SATURDAY'S BALMORAL LINE LISTED BELOW

  FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 30 AT MAYWOOD

Best bet: Rockin Glory (2nd race)

First Post-7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F&M, PURSE $2,500:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

3  L-Yes We Did, Leonard  3-1  1 6 1

5  L!Seekin For Glamour, Oosting  5-2  5 8 1

7  La Semana Hanover, T. Warren  7-2  2 2 2

4  L-Pierce My Heart, Affrunti  5-1  2 3 3

2  L-Bust My Chops, R. Warren  8-1  4 4 5

1  L-It’s A Sham, Carpenter  8-1  7 5 2

6  L-Friskie Flicker, T. Curtin  12-1  1 9 7

8  L!WH Carmen, Hiteman  20-1  4 9 8

YES WE DID rushed pace with authority last two times with Casey and might again. SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR was a 13-time winner in 2014. Mare drops down to where she was claimed. LA SEMANA HANOVER has to be caught again. It may now happen.

SECOND: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, PURSE $3,500:

1  L+Rockin Glory, T. Warren  8-5  2 7 7

4  !Atomic Art, Seekman  3-1  4 6 5

3  L!Someplace Special, De Long  7-2  5 6 7

5  L+Western Deal, Leonard  4-1  6 6 2

6  L-So Be It, Oosting  10-1  6 8 *3

7  L-Dade Hall, Wilfong  10-1  3 4 6

2  L-Nightinthebox, T. Curtin  25-1  8 6 8

ROCKIN GLORY hasn’t previously been in this cheap. He may not be headed in his Maywood bow. ATOMIC ART should benefit from the class drop and is a threat to rally in time. SOMEPLACE SPECIAL stayed sharp in Ohio. He’s a steady leaver at Maywood.

THIRD: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $3,500:

5  L+Blazin With Pride, De Long  5-2  3 *3 3

7  L+Zumba, Carpenter  3-1  *8 *3 7

1  L-Cole Blue, Smolin  7-2  4 8 9

4  !Playgirl Interlude, Hostetler  5-1  5 8 8

8  L!Prosper, R. Warren  6-1  6 9 6

6  L-Fox Valley Dina, T. Curtin  12-1  4 4 4

2  L-Six Pack Annie, Rath  12-1  5 8 9

3  L-Desiree Bellabella, Affrunti  25-1  10 4 6

BLAZIN WITH PRIDE comes off a wide mile. A favorable trip may see her prevail. ZUMBA bows for her new barn. She’s capable here. COLE BLUE should dictate the fractions again.

FOURTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $3,500:

3  L-Summer Party, Oosting  3-1  3 3 6

5  L-Getoutthewayanmove, Carpenter  4-1  2 8 *6

6  L!Odds On Topaz, Seekman  7-2  7 9 2

4  L-Sealark Hanover, Leonard  9-2  *4 5 3

1  L-Candy N Apples, De Long  5-1  4 5 7

2  !All Pink, T. Warren  6-1  8 4 9

7  L-Windy City Diane, Wilfong  8-1  5 1 7

SUMMER PARTY may have found the right situation to rally past in time. GETOUTTHEWAYANMOVE changed tactics in last. Mare is a good fir here. ODDS ON TOPAZ benefits from a couple of starts in Ohio and can be considered.

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

2  !Gimmeazzzmooch, De. Magee  9-2  7 10 1

8  L!Blazing Fury, Leonard  3-1  3 7 *9

4  L-Sexy Card Shark, T. Warren  7-2  1 6 6

1  L-Sister’s Keeper, Oosting  4-1 7 5 3

6  L+Rock N Kilo, R, Warren  6-1  1 1 *7

3  L-Morwyn Hanover, Carpenter  6-1  *7 4 5

5  Belluga Babe, Seekman  12-1  3 7 7

7  L+Phobic Princess, Wilfong  15-1  2 4 3

GIMMEAZZZMOOCH was battling better and she has had past success at Maywood. BLAZING FURY’S post the concern but she has rallied past better. SEXY CARD SHARK likes Maywood and might handle tonight’s hike.

SIXTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F&M, PURSE $2,500:

1  L-I Don’t Rember, Oosting  2-1  6 1 5

7  L-Steph’s Place, Leonard  5-2  1 1 6

5  L-Sun Dream, T. Warren  7-2  3 *4 *2

2  L-Anightwithwilma, T. Curtin  4-1  3 2 2

3  L-Primrose Path, Seekman  10-1  4 7 4

6  L!Red Star Fiona, De Long  12-1  8 3 7

4  L-Fortunes Smile, Affrunti  15-1  8 5 8

I DON’T REMBER couldn’t get out. Mare may power past this time. STEPH’S PLACE is 2-for-2 at this class and may get to the top and win another. SUN DREAM fits well and is another who has to be respected.

SEVENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,500:

1  L-Equinox Seelster, Wilfong  7-2  *1 1 5

4  L!Fox Valley Hotstuf, Seekman  3-1  6 9 8

6  L+Captain Obvious, Curtin  9-2  1 7 2

5  L+Rocket Dog, De Long  5-1  *1 7 3

2  L-Manartica, Leonard  8-1  8 3 5

3  +Dick McTracy, Smolin  8-1  2 8 2

8  L+Five Cougars A, T. Warren  8-1  9 9 4

7  L+Speakin Greek, Carpenter  8-1  2 7 3

EQUINOX SEELSTER in a good spot to dictate the pace and win another, FOX VALLEY HOTSTUF returns from Ohio at a lower level where she’s a major threat. CAPTAIN OBVIOUS is in tough however she dominated her last field.

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

5  L-Makena Cat, Carpenter  9-2  4 *1 3

4  L!Windsun Montecarlo, Oosting  3-1  3 2 3

2  L-Mazeppa Hanover, Anderson  7-2  *1 2 1

3  L+Victoria Ivy, De Long  4-1  *1 1 6

1  L+Na Zdrowie, Wilfong  6-1  *1 2 1

7  L-Dolly Dune, Seekman  8-1  3 3 3

8  L-Skinny Jeans, Leonard  10-1  4 9 2

6  L-Misspanderosajones, R. Warren  10-1  8 7 8

MAKENA CAT may be in better position tonight to rush past in time. WINDSUN MONTECARLO has back class. She’s in soft after being sidelined since late June. MAZEPPA HANOVER could roll right to the front agin and maybe this time not give way.

NINTH: PACE, COND, NW $8,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $7,100:

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

1  L!Muy Caliente, Seekman  3-1  4 4 5

6  L-Financial Effort, Leonard  4-1  4 *1 9

4  L-Shez A Swift, T. Warren  9-2  2 *2 1

7  L+ER Moniva, De Long  6-1  *1 *1 6

2  L-Gentle Janet, Oosting  8-1  2 8 6

3  L-Incredible Filly, T. Curtin  8-1  2 8 6

FEEL LIKE DANCING had her 2014 season mark at Maywood. She’s capable. MUY CALIENTE comes out of Ohio Opens. Drew nicely and is well-placed. FINANCIAL EFFORT isn’t likely to be too far back tonight. Consider.

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

9  L-Montero Blue Chip, Oosting  3-1  2 3 7

2  L-Fox Valley Libero, Seekman  7-2  3 5 2

3  L+Innocent Victim, Wilfong  4-1  *1 2 3

1  L+Total Sin, Hostetler  9-2  *1 5 6

5  L-Fox Valley George, Smolin  8-1  3 4 3

4  L-Donald Himself, T. Warren  8-1  6 2 1

7  L+Monoply Man, De Long  12-1  3 *4 4

8  L-Cantholdmeback, Leonard  15-1  4 8 4

6  L-Gypsy Leather, P. Curtin  15-1  5 3 3

MONTERO BLUE CHIP could be a well-timed move away from disposing of this field. FOX VALLEY LIBERO stayed sharp in Ohio. He’s a threat from the inside here. INNOCENT VICTIM steps up but gelding fares well at Maywood and may pop here.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $2,900:

9  L-Well Dune, T. Warren  3-1  *1 6 3

1  L-Speed Minister, De. Magee  4-1  2 4 2

7  L-Fox Valley Hanson, Leonard  9-2  *4 1 5

5  L-Electric Intensity, Seekman  5-1  6 *7 4

4  L-Lizard Lick, Oosting  6-1  2 6 1

2  L-Lestrade Hanover, Smolin  12-1  5 6 1

6  It’s A Big Secret, Wilfong  6-1  4 5 7

8  Santanna Long Legs, Hiteman  12-1  7 *7 *1

3  Mister Jughead, Rath  20-1  5 3 7

WELL DUNE had a game win before the winter break. Can repeat if he races back to that kind of an effort, SPEED MINISTER is in a good spot for a favorable and maybe a winning journey. FOX VALLEY HANSON needed his Jan. 1 start. Capable tonight if he doesn’t also need this one.

TWELFTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,600:

3  L-Russell L, De. Magee  3-1  4 7 2

7  L-Dontdoubtthelakers, T. Warren  7-2  2 4 *2

1  L!Colefederate, Anderson  4-1 2 4 6

8  L!Western Slammer, Leonard  9-2  6 2 *1

4  L-Doc Telladay, Abel  6-1  5 3 1

6  L-Dylan Rocks, Oosting  8-1  4 8 2

5  L-Hanks Kid, Husted  12-1  4 1 7

9  L+Richess Nestor, Affrunti  15-1  4 4 3

2  L-Pure Addiction, P. Curtin  25-1  8 8 9

RUSSEL L shifts over to Maywood where he has had success. He’s a good fit here. DONTDOUBTTHELAKERS can sprint out and be in is usual good positon to be very competitive. COLEFEDERATE returns from Ohio to a track where he’s a number of past wins. Veteran has speed from the pole position.

   FOR SATURDAY, JANUARY 31 AT BALMORAL

Best bet: Rhombus (3rd race)

First Post-7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $2,800:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)        ODDS  LAST 3

3  Shakeittothemoon, R. Warren  3-1  2 *4 *1

7  Gabby Rei, De Long  6-1  *9 *9 3

4  L-Treat For My Sweet, Smolin  4-1  3 5 1

1  L+If I Didn’t Dream, Leonard  9-2  1 *6 3

2  L-Miriam’s Jet, P. Curtin  5-1  3 6 5

10  Jovanna, T. Warren  8-1  5 4 2

9  Sandcastle Girl, Oosting  10-1  4 6 *8

8  !SS Betty’s Ideal, Husted  15-1  5 4 1

5  L-Msrichstyle, De. Magee  25-1  7 7 5

6  L-Sammi’s Song, Seekman  30-1  10 8 9

SHAKEITTOTHEMOON is in line for another up-close trip and perhaps a victory. GABBI REI bet down when she came up with two poor efforts. Mare can close in time if she’s right. TREAT FOR MY SWEET likely seeks and gets up-close position where she’s a possibility.

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

3  Soft Velvet, T. Curtin  7-2  5 3 2

5  L-Marzy Bearzy, Wilfong  5-2  *4 2 2

2  Val’s Way, Leonard  3-1  5 8 9

8  L-Earthly Desire, Seekman  9-2  2 *4 1

1  L-Western Boudoir, P. Curtin  8-1  5 6 1

6  L-Peacelovepace, De Long  8-1  3 6 5

4  Our Miss Special, T. Warren  12-1  7 5 7

7  L-CJ’s Terror, Gregory  30-1  5 9 8

SOFT VELVET has been the victim of some wide miles. A favorable trip can see her rush past and prevail. MARZY BEARZY is an often-beaten favorite who may be a well-timed move from making amends. VAL’S WAY was pushed back out of contention. Mare is a threat here.

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

6  L!Rhombus, De Long  7-5  7 *1 9

1a  L-Park Lane Hotshot, Oosting  7-2  4 7 3

3  L-Life Is Good Today, Da. Magee  4-1  3 4 3

5  Cotton Eyed Joe, Smolin  9-2  1 10 1

1  L-Extravagant Art, Wilfong  7-2  5 4 *1

2  L+My Boy Cal, Leonard  10-1  1 7 2

4  L-Southern Scorpion, De. Magee  12-1  4 2 3

7  L+Prairie Thunder, T. Warren  12-1  2 5 2

RHOMBUS showed his back class in Ohio and should power is way another field. PARK LANE HOTSHOT heads up the entry. He was stuck inside last time. LIFE IS GOOD TODAY lacked room. Gelding is a gimmick possibility.

FOURTH: PACE, COND, WINNER’S OVER $30,000 LT, PURSE $9,400:

5  L-Wings, T. Curtin  5-2  1 *1 2

6  L+State Street Liz, Smolin  3-1  2 2 *3

3  L+Seeyouatthefinish, P. Curtin  7-2  1 4 2

4  L!Rev Me Up, De Long  4-1  9 1 *1

2  L!Just By Design, Da. Magee  5-1  3 3 2

1  L+Pretty Place, Oosting  6-1  3 1 4

WINGS was in top form before the winter break. She may win this competitive event. STATE STYREET LIZ can sprint out and be in good position to get the job done. SEEYOUATTHEFINISH has held her own with most of these mares and usually offers fair wagering value.

FIFTH: TROT, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, PURSE $3,500:

8  L-Mayfair Sophie, P. Curtin  2-1  1 8 8

1  L-A Local Band, Oosting  3-1  2 3 3

3  L-Muscular Yankee, Coleman  4-1  2 5 1

1a  L-Powerful Commander, Da. Magee  3-1  3 4 8

4  L-Itz Alive, Carpenter  6-1  4 8 5

9  L+Sunset Cove, De Long  8-1  4 2 8

2  L-Powerful Force, Wilfong  12-1  7 6 7

7  Recollection, Wilfong  15-1  6 6 4

5  Cardinal Wind, Hiteman  15-1  2 6 9

6  L-Earthquake Ernie, T. Curtin  30-1  6 5 4

MAYFAIR SOPHIE had a huge qualifier a few nights ago. If she races back to it she probably won’t be headed. A LOCAL BAND always in the gimmicks and may win it all with a likely up-close trip. MUSCULAR YANKEE is back on the track where he’s been best.

SIXTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,500:

1  L-Woop D Do Bazzle, Leonard  7-2  2 *5 3

4  L-One Last Chance, Smolin  3-1  1 *1 3

5  L-Camwiser, Oosting  4-1  *5 2 8

10  L!Bet On Him, Ri. Warren  6-1  10 7 5

6  L+Justlivinthedream, Da. Magee  10-1  2 2 *4

2  L+Pip’s Quatro, T. Warrren  10-1  *2 3 5

3  L-Jo Jo Spur, P. Curtin  12-1  8 6 1

7  L-Awesome Abe, T. Curtin  12-1  1 4 9

8  L-Dot’s Bigboy, Seekman  15-1  4 8 1

9  L-Larry’s Place, Wilfong  15-1  3 6 7

WOOP D DO BAZZLE could get out and going at the right time to win this race. ONE LAST CHANCE was sharp before the winter break. If she still is mare can make it 3 in a row. CAMWISER bet down but a rugged trip took its toll. Consider.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $2,800:

5  Vital Terror, P. Curtin  3-1  *8 1 1

6  Jm’sdukeofdelight, Da. Magee  7-2  6 4 1

1  L-Dave’s Art, Leonard  4-1  3 2 2

10  L-Speed Racer, T. Curtin  9-2  1 4 6

7  L-Here’s Toostsie, Oosting  6-1  2 *4 2

8  !Glided Towards Me, R. Warren  12-1  9 7 1

3  L-Truly Wild, Hiteman  12-1  9 4 6

4  L-Standingartfection, Beard  25-1  6 2 5

2  L-Dunesides Son, Beyer  25-1  5 7 8

9  L-Incredibly Sporty, T. Warren  25-1  8 5 9

VITAL TERROR was a two-time winner at this class before being bet down and going off-stride. JM’SDUKEOFDELIGHT proved best last time in with a price tag and may do so again. DAVE’S ART fits well from the inside if he doesn’t need his first start in six weeks.

EIGHTH: TROT, COND, WINNER’S OVER $30,000 LT, PURSE $9,400:

6  L-Justice Jet, Welch  5-2  1 *3 1

5  !Celebrity Hercules, Leonard  3-1  5 2 3

8  L-Master Of Excuses, Oosting  9-2  2 1 4

7  L!Fox Valley Veto, De Long  4-1  7 *5 4

4  L-Surclasser, Smolin  5-1  2 3 4

1  L-Ants Iner Pants, Anderson  12-1  4 1 8

2  L+Repeat Your ABC’s, Wilfong  15-1  *2 7 7

3  Clever Upstart, Da. Magee  25-1  6 6 1

JUSTICE JET may follow-up live cover and start this year 2-for-2. CELEBRITY HERCULES out of Ohio Opens and back to the track where he’s best. MASTER OF EXCUSES could go out and get early position where he’s a factor.

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

5  L-Washington Hanover, Carpenter  3-1  2 2 6

4  L!Touch The Rock, De Long  7-2  1 3 7

3  L-Alequash Hotspur, Oosting  4-1  5 6 *1

7  L!Lucky Crusader, Hiteman  5-1  6 4 4

6  L+Adams Hanover, Smolin  6-1  1 4 10

1  L-Major Male, Leonard  6-1  1 3 8

8  L+Jerrico, Wilfong  10-1  *3 4 4

2  L+Svaya Knows, Seekman  15-1  2 9 7

1a  Revloutionary, T. Warren  6-1  5 8 6

WASHINGTON HANOVER was starting to put it together before the winter break came. He appears to be a good fit against this field. TOUCH THE ROCK missed all of 2014. He has back class and likes this track. Last qualifier encouraging. ALEQUASH HOTSPUR is back on home track where he looks like a possibility.

TENTH: PACE, CLMG HANDICAP, $6,000-$8,000, PURSE 3,500:

1  L-AJ Get’s The Money, Smolin  3-1  1 3 4

2  L-Nancy’s Skyscape, Leonard  7-2  3 3 4

9  L!Crime Of Passion, De Long  4-1  *7 *2 2

6  L-Bell Valley Bill, Da. Magee  6-1  *4 3 1

7  L-Hot Streak Hanover, P. Curtin  8-1  5 1 2

10  L-Meadowbrook Samson, Oosting  8-1  4 5 4

3  L-Fortune Dor, T. Curtin  12-1  2 9 9

5  L-Nitrogen Fuse, T. Warren  15-1  *5 6 5

8  L-Mysterious Bob, Wilfong  15-1  6 7 6

4  L-Ready, Carpenter  25-1  7 5 6

AJ GET’S THE MONEY can go out and maybe get another winning pocket trip. NANCYS SKYSCAPE could get command in better shape from here and maybe carries his speed all the way. CRIME OF PASSION was put in with a $8,000 tag so an outside post was expected. He’s been best at Balmoral.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $9,500 LAST 5, PURSE $7,700:

4  L!Firstclassallthway, De Long  3-1  3 3 6

10  L!Fashion Delight, Da. Magee  7-2  4 1 2

6  L+Big Brad, Smolin  4-1  *1 *2 2

1  L-Don’t Worry B Happy, Oosting  6-1  4 *1 *1

8  L-Holy Chip, Leonard  8-1  7 5 1

5  L+Stamped By Design, Hiteman  12-1  2 7 7

2  L+Ricky Bobbie, Seekman  12-1  3 5 5

3  L+Some Heart Throb, Wilfong  12-1  1 3 *3

9  L+Jackson Berlow, P. Curtin  15-1  2 5 4

7  L-No Fear No Doubt, T. Warren  20-1  9 8 1

FIRSTCLASSALLTHWAY could find this drop to his liking and put this field away tonight. FASHION DELIGHT out of the Invite. He has enough gate speed to get early position. BIG BRAD faces tougher but he can handle it if he’s still sharp.

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

6  L+Love This Place, De Long  3-1  5 9 4

4  +Window Wiper, Leonard  7-2  3 *3 *1

9  L-Molly Go Lightly, Oosting  4-1  *5 5 4

8  L-Get The Terror, Wilfong  6-1  4 3 1

10  L-Fox Valley Shiver, Hiteman  12-1  6 2 3

5  L!Fox Valley Ruby, Da. Magee  10-1  8 6 8

3  +Youroldlov-eletter, Smolin  10-1  *1 *1 2

2  L+Metis Blue Chip, Carpenter  12-1  3 9 7

1  +Lizzabelle, T. Warren  12-1  7 1 1

7  L+Jokerslitwhitelie, Anderson  25-1  4 3 1

LOVE THIS PLACE has back class and may be in cheap enough to get back on the winning track. WINDOW WIPER failed first up. Mare may overtake the speed and win this race. MOLLY GO LIGHTLY is overdue. Has ability when she’s right.
