Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  SATURDAY'S HAWTHORNE LINE LISTED BELOW 

 FOR FRIDAY, MAY 27 AT HAWTHORNE

Best bet: Carmen O (4th race)

First Post-7:35 pm

FIRST: PACE, LATE CLOSER SERIES (NO. 10) FINAL, F & M, PURSE $12,800:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

2  Bucklegirl Bobette, Leonard  8-5  *2 1 2

3  L-Likeafireballshot, Ja. Finn  9-5  1 *2 3

5  Burry Me Inthesand, Rath  6-1  3 3 1

8  True To My Heart, Hiteman  6-1  5 *1 5

6  LL-Exclusive Deisgn, Seekman  8-1  9 10 *1

1  Ashlee’s Fine Lady, Krueger  12-1  6 12 7

7  L-Fox Valley Wave, Husted  25-1  4 7 5

4  Hslb Michelle, P. Curtin  30-1  11 5 4

BUCKLEGIRL BOBETTE battled hard before ending up second best. Filly gets a helpful chance in posts tonight. LIKEAFREBALLSHOT out-gamed the above last week and may do so again. BURRY ME INTHESAND has been ignored in the wagering but she came a long way last week.

SECOND: PACE, COND, NW 1, ICF, F & M, PURSE $4,950:

2  L-Impressive Trick, R. Warren  3-1  2 2 4

1  Nat, Hiteman  4-1  3 4 9

4  !Dakota Sleek, Shehan  7-2  3 3 2

7  L-Cyber Gal, T. Warren  9-2  3 7 5

3  L-Campercaper, Leonard  8-1  8 7 8

6  !Georgeous Dune, P. Curtin  12-1  8 5 3

10  L!Lacarmeliliana, Avenatti  12-1  7 11 8

8  +Sagebrush Shelly, Patton  15-1  7 6 7

9  L-Vitaltrnsformation, Husted  15-1  5 9 7

5  +Faith Can Do It, T. Curtin  25-1  5 x x

IMPRESSIVE TRICK bothered early and came back to drop a photo despite being off since early October. NAT is another who raced big in her 3-year-old bow and will benefit from the start. DAKOTA SLEEK prepped well for her season debut. See how she’s bet.

THIRD: PACE, LATE CLOSER SERIES (NO. 11) FINAL, F & M, PURSE $12,800:

3  Rocknroll Hoochcoo, P. Curtin  3-1  *2 1 2

5  Jiggles The Clown, Leonard  7-2  *1 *5 1

6  -Sugar Crush, R. Warren  4-1  3 2 1

7  Vorfst, Seekman  6-1  2 1 4

2  Savoya Cruiser, T. Warren  8-1  4 2 *1

4  L-Little Mis Torie, R, Curtin  8-1  1 7 2

1  Manchester Mattie, Husted  15-1  6 4 2

9  Rocknrol’s Image, Shehan  15-1  4 9 2

10  L-Sinister, Hiteman  15-1  3 3 4

8  L-Sandy Win, Wilfong  15-1  5 5 2

ROCKNROLL HOOCHCOO set a slow pace and got overtaken in the late going. Beaten choice deserves another chance. JIGGLES THE CLOWN drew off with authority. Same big effort can see her win again. SUGAR CRUSH has dropped some close ones and may offer a fair price this time.

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

6  Speedy Shooter, Leonard  3-1  7 3 6

4  A Thousand Dreams, T. Warren  7-2  4 4 5

5  L!Fat And Poe, R, Warren  4-1  8 8 2

1  L!See Me Cruise, Franco  6-1  7 6 8

8  So Sophisticated, Patton  8-1  7 4 5

9  Big Bad Sissy Finn, Hiteman  8-1  4 7 8

7  !I See Success, Rath  15-1  5 9 3

3  L-Jetm, P. Curtin  15-1  6 7 x

2  Look Gigi, Wilfong  15-1  5 6 7

10  !Melodies That Rock, Krueger  15-1  8 6 9

SPEEDY SHOOTER’S tough trip took its toll. A start over the track should benefit her tonight. A THOUSAND DREAMS has improved at Hawthorne and may get her maiden win tonight.   FAST AND POE needed her start at Hoosier and she is in easier here.

FIFTH: PACE, LATE CLOSER SERIES (NO. 15) FINAL, F & M, PURSE $14,600:

5  L-Young American, Petrelli  3-1  2 *5 8

2  L-Sure You Are, Leonard  5-2  1 9 8

3  L-Lil Miss Knuckles, T. Warren  7-2  *3 3 *1

7  L-Joyful Game, Krueger  9-2  4 1 8

1  L-Prosper, P. Curtin  6-1  5 *2 3

6  L-If I Didn’t Dream, Husted  8-1  6 4 7

8 L-Pacifire, Wilfong  25-1  9 10 9

4  L-H-And-N-Letsrace, Bell  25-1  10 5 8

YOUNG AMERICAN used twice when she came up a half-length short. Gets the nod. SURE YOU ARE raced well for Casey who is back. Mare may get up in time again. LIL MISS KNUCKLES bet down when she raced game in defeat. She’s another who must be considered in here.

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

5  L!Fox Velley Pipa, Leonard  3-1  7 4 5

8  Stephie Clay, Husted  4-1  *2 3 3

6  L!Shez A Swift, Wilfong  7-2  5 9 3

2  L-Desiree Bellabella, Affrunti  9-2  2 8 9

1  L-Perfectly Clear, P. Curtin  8-1  5 4 5

10  Our Miss Special, T. Warren  8-1  4 10 7

3  L-Thedayyouhavemade, Lake  15-1  3 6 6

9  L-It’s a Sham, Krueger  20-1  3 6 2

7  L-Getoutthewayanmove, Seekman  20-1  5 5 6

4  First To Arrive, Molitor  25-1  9 5 7

FOX VALLEY PIPA may be in cheap enough here to turn her fortuned around. STEPHIE CLAY has raced well despite a winless season thus far. Big shot here. SHRZ A SHIFT has been taking on better and could handle this softer field.

SEVENTH: PACE, LATE CLOSER SERIES (NO. 16) FINAL, F & M, PURSE $17,600:

1  Fox Valley Charm, Krueger  8-5  *9 7 5

6  L-Seeyouatthefinish, Husted  3-1  5 1 1

3  Feetonthedashboard, Hiteman  4-1  5 *5 4

2  Town Temptress, P. Curtin  6-1  2 1 1

8  L-Alibi Seelster, Seekman  8-1  6 3 7

5  L-Our Miss Lily, Leonard  10-1  1 4 6

7  L-Wings, T. Curtin  15-1  4 6 1

4  L-DP Angel, Wilfong  25-1  7 9 10

FOX VALLEY CHARM went from last entering the final turn to first rather handily. SEEYOUATTHEFINISH came on strong once she got out and going. She’s a danger. FEETONTHEDASHBOARD is inside for the first time at the meet and that makes her a major threat.

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

9  L-Fox Valley Kit, P. Curtin  4-1  10 4 10

6  L-Incredible Filly, Leonard  3-1  7 3 4

8  L-Fox Valley Ruby, Shehan  5-1  4 8 3

2  L-Always Reese, Rath  6-1  6 9 6

4  L-Misspanderosajones, R. Warren  8-1  5 5 4

1  L-Cee Cee’s Delight, Krueger  10-1  9 6 7

3  L-Sea Bug, Anthrop  12-1  9 5 2

5  L+Printonthebeach, Wilfong  12-1  5 3 2

7  Lizzbelle, Hiteman  12-1  8 6 7

10  L+Missiana, T, Warren  15-1  5 7 7

FOX VALLEY KIT made a rare early break and was never a major factor. Mare meets a less-then-inspiring field tonight. INCREDIBLE FILLY, as usual, has to be caught. Maybe she won’t with her new driver, VALLEY RUBY hurt by a slow start but she did have an encouraging strong finish. I’d consider. ALWAYS REESE raced first up. She looks like she’s getting sharp.

NINTH: PACE, LATE CLOSER SERIES (NO. 31) FINAL, F & M, PURSE $13,400:

9  Dandy’s Diva, T. Warren  4-1  *4 1 4

4  L-Duneside Perttie, Wilfong  3-1  *1 *1 7

1  L-Faithful Friend, Petrelli  6-1  3 5 *3

7  L-Tamarac Smoochie, Leonard  5-1  2 3 6

2  Dali Treasure, Husted  8-1  1 8 8

3  L-Awesum World, R. Warren  8-1  4 4 1

6  LK’s Nancy Lee, Hiteman  8-1  3 2 6

10  L-Eva Bella, P. Curtin  10-1  2 3 4

8  L-Alwayssmoothraigin, Lewis  15-1  5 2 5

5  L-Rockn Legend, Franco  20-1  7 4 3

DANDY’S DIVA used hard and often early. She’s at her best coming from out of it. DUNESIDE PERTTIE racing game and could grind out another victory. FAITHFUL FRIEND was shuffled out of contention. Respect her chances here.

TENTH: PACE, CLMG HANDICAP, $5,000-$7,500, F & M, PURSE $5,000:

9  L!Carmen O, Leonard  8-5  *2 *1 *1

3  L+Make Way, Krueger  7-2  1 4 8

10  L+Western Dame, T. Warren  4-1  10 1 9

2  L+Beauty’s Life, Hiteman  6-1  5 1 8

1  L-O Come On Now, Wlfong  10-1  7 7 6

5  L+Miss Pat Weisar, T. Curtin  15-1  2 10 8

8  L+Shakeittothemoon, Avenatti  15-1  6 4 7

7  L-La Semana Hanover, P. Curtin  15-1  6 6 9

6  L+Ms Solongbyebye, Petrelli  20-1  7 9 6

4  L!Beach Sand, Husted  25-1  9 9 5

CARMEN O had a nice try at a higher level. Mare could rally past this time. MAKE WAY won with authority and could get to the top again and repeat. WESTERN DAME could go out and get a spot up close again but with a much better end result.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $5,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $5,500:

4  L!Scarlet N Silk, T. Warren  3-1  8 2 8

2  L-Ahlbback Yankee, R. Warren  4-1  5 5 4

8  L+Financial Effort, Leonard  9-2  *1 *5 2

5  L+Rev Me Up, Krueger  5-1  1 8 6

3  +Fox Valley Brooke, Husted  8-1  *5 1 5

10  L+Fox Valley Gypsy, Hiteman  10-1  7 10 2

7  L+Iced Out, Seekman  12-1  9 8 3

6  L-Kesons Avaia, P. Curtin  15-1  4 3 5

1  L-Togetherforver, Wilfong  15-1  7 1 9

9  L+Melanies Sharkette, Shehan  15-1  6 5 7

SCARLET N SILK   is out of a high-level series and into a much more favorable situation. AHLBBACK YANKEE is back on the track where she had success earlier. Mare is well placed here. FINANCIAL EFFORT got a winning inside trip. Steps up and moves further outside tonight.

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

3  L+Molly Go Lightly, Leonard  3-1  2 7 3

1  L-Pretty Place, R. Warren  4-1  3 4 1

5  L!Just By Design, Seekman  5-1  7 1 9

7  L+BS Tyrichess, Hiteman  6-1  1 6 4

8  L-Peacelovepace, Wilfong  6-1  2 3 3

4  L!Sir Lehigh Z Tam, P. Curtin  8-1  3 7 4

2  L-Bust My Chops, Husted  12-1  4 2 10

10  L+Sister’s Keeper, T. Warren  12-1  *3 *2 5

6  L+Mystical MJ, Krueger  20-1  6 10 1

9  L-Steph’s Place, Lackey  20-1  9 3 5

MOLLY GO LIGHTLY had too much ground to try and make up. The move inside is a big plus for her. PRETTY PACE also was too far behind and this late charger should relish this significant post switch. JUST BY DESIGN drops after a needed start. She’s beaten much better in the past.

Mike’s Solid Plays

Fox Valley Charm (7th race)

Carmen O (10th race)

Mike’s Price Shots

Fox Valley Ruby (8th race)

Faithful Friend (9th race)

   

FOR SATURDAY, MAY 28 AT HAWTHORNE

Best bet: TE’s Black Tie (3rd race)

First Post-7:35 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND/ WINNER’S OF 2 BUT NOT MORE THAN 4 AT EXTENDED PARI-MUTEL MEETS OR $20,000 LT, PURSE $6,000:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)        ODDS    LAST 3

2  !Dan D Dune, Leonard  3-2  *4 2 1

3  !BS Tyrrific, Wilfong  8-5  3 1 3

1  Jewel Maker, Franco  9-2  *1 2 1

8  L+Big Moon Rizing, T. Warren  8-1  2 *4 4

5  L+Rockin Jimmy, Husted  10-1  8 7 4

4  L-Macho Burbon, T. Curtin  15-1  4 9 1

6  +Strong Like Bull, Fletcher  25-1  4 2 6

7  Gunny Wilson, Hiteman  50-1  6 7 10

DAN D DUNE isn’t likely to be too far back again. He had a 26.1 last quarter a week ago. BS TYRIFFIC had a good effort in a needed start. He’s a major threat. JEWEL MAKER likes this track and post should have him in good position.

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

5  Dandy’s Brother, Leonard  3-1  4 4 x

7  Fox Valley Valdez, P. Curtin  7-2  2 3 3

9  Dan P, Hiteman  4-1  6 2 7

10  Easy Joe, T. Warren  6-1  8 7 4

3  Fox Valley Hidalgo, F. Patton  8-1  5 5 3

1  Wimple’s Dimple,J. Patton  10-1  6 2 5

4  L-Dumas Gram, R. Warren  12-1  3 6 10

2  !Pocket Party, Krueger  12-1  7 3 6

6  Whatdoesthefoxsay, Seekman  20-1  8 5 2

8  L-Fox Balley Maestro, Wilfong  25-1  6 10 6

DANDY’S BROTHER was raced easy in his pari-mutuel debut and may rally past this time. FOX VALLEY VADEZ found last winner too tough. He may zip past these horses. DAN P bet down but was never in position to contend. Consider again.

THIRD: PACE, COND, NW 2, PURSE $5,000:

5  TE’s Black Tie, T. Warren  7-5  4 1 4

6  Red Dog Ryan, Wilfong  4-1  4 3 1

4  L-Trixsen Gram, Leonard  5-1  5 5 3

9  L-Genuine Desire, Krueger  8-1  7 7 *4

10  Tha Pipe Fitta, J. Patton  8-1  9 4 3

7  My Man Red, Husted  12-1  5 10 6

8  L-Fox Valley Chino, Hiteman  15-1  8 6 3

1  Mr Big W, F. Patton  20-1  8 8 1

3  L-Red Red Redneck, R. Warren  25-1  8 4 10

2  L-Every Advantage, Rogers  50-1  6 7 8

T E’S BLACK TIE out of a series and into a spot where he can power past and prevail. RED DOG RYAN hurt by slow recent starts. He’ll be better. TRIXSEN GRAM should find tonight’s field more to his liking.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,500, NW 4, F & M, PURSE $4,500:

1  !Steal My Thunder, Wilfong  3-1  8 4 3

5  L+Fox Valleytiramisu, Leonard  6-1  6 8 4

7  L-Addie Rose, Krueger  7-2  8 5 3

6  L!It Takes A Village, Petrelli  9-2  2 3 6

8  Parklane Dragon, Franco  5-1  1 45 6

3  Leenah Pearl, Shenhan  6-1  9 *1 5

2  L!Dont Dali Around, P. Curtin  8-1  5 3 7

4  L!Foolish Behavior, Lake  15-1  7 9 6

STEAL MY THUNDER drops and sheds second tier and that may be a winning combination. FOX VALLEYTIRAMISU probably needed her last two. Casey takes over her lines tonight. ADDIE ROSE started running early and often. A flat mile makes her a possibility.

FIFTH: PACE, COND, NW $1,000 LAST 5, PURSE $4,000:

2  L-Bright Future, Leonard  5-2  4 7 *3

4  L!Medway Tower, Petrelli  7-2  6 2 7

10  L-Rejoiceandbeglad, P. Curtin  6-1  6 1 9

3  L-Onesportonly, R. Warren  5-1  3 8 8

5  L-Sporty Gypsy, Hiteman  8-1  4 9 10

7  !Im So Handsome, Husted  8-1  5 8 5

6  L-Judson Director, Seekman  12-1  6 9 6

8  L!Allaboutme Hanover, Wilfong  15-1  3 5 7

1  L-Nancy’s Skyscape, Avenatti  20-1  9 10 3

9  L-Ulshooturkeyeout, T. Warren  25-1  8 7 8

BRIGHT FUTURE”S layoff the concern but pacer looks well placed for his local debut. MEDWAY TOWER not only needed his las but it came against tougher and from the 9-hole. REJOICEANDBEGLAD benefits from a needed outing but did land another bad post.

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

8  L-Uncle Bud, Leonard  4-1  7 3 3

7  L!Earndawg, T. Warren  7-2  7 1 9

4  L+Fox Valley George, Husted  9-2  *1 3 10

6  L-Ricky Bobbie, R. Warren  5-1  4 2 6

9  !Smoke Rings, Lackey  6-1  5 2 4

10  L!Ulysse’s Blue Chip, Petrelli  8-1  9 2 1*

2  Part Time, P. Curtin  12-1  4 6 2

1  L+V Mack, Seekman  15-1  7 7 3

3  L!Country Jewel, Krueger  15-1  5 2 5

5  L-Make It Work, Wilfong  20-1  10 2 8

UNCLE BUD came up short in his first race in over four months. He might not be tonight. EARNDAWG drops back down where he beat a comparable field. FOX VALLEY GEORGE was a game winner and may handle this class hike and repeat/

SEVENTH: PACE, LATE CLOSER (NO. 7) FINAL, PURSE $17,400:

5  L-Ontario Success, Leonard  1-5  *1 *1 1

4  Freedomformysoul, T. Warren  6-1  3 5 *1

3  L-Kolt Power, Hiteman  5-1  2 2 2

2  Bngs Express, Seekman  12-1  4 5 *2

1  L-Lucky Crusader, Husted  30-1  6 4 9

6  Coal Hanover, Shehan  30-1  5 1 *4

ONTARIO  SUCCESS has simply been too strong for these horses. Will he win at 1-5 or 1-9? FREEDOMFORMYSOUL could be second best if he makes the top easier. KOLT POWER keeps racing well in defeat and should hit the board again.

EIGHTH: PACE, LATE CLOSER (NO. 6) FINAL, PURSE $15,400:

3  L-Southwind Scorpion, Krueger  3-1  *1 1 3

9  Sunset Dreamer, Wilfong  7-2  *1 1 6

5  L-Big Brad, Leonard  9-2  3 *2 1

8  L-Officially Yours, P. Curtin  6-1  5 2 1

7  L-Montero Blue Chip, Hiteman  8-1  4 4 3

2  L-Mr Coolie, T. Warren  8-1  2 4 7

6  L-Victor Bayama, Husted  12-1  8 *3 *1

1  L-That Man Of Mine, T. Curtin  15-1  3 6 7

10  L-Fox Valley Cupid, Shehan  15-1  5 5 5

4  L-Red Pine, Seekman  15-1  2 9 2

SOUTHWIND SCORPION is sharp and confident now. He can overtake another field. SUNSET DREAMET loves Hawthorne’s stretch. The move to an outside slot makes his task obviously more difficult. BIG BRAD likely seeks and gets the front again and may offer fair wagering value.

NINTH: PACE, CLMG HANDICAP, $10,000 TO $15,000, PURSE $6,500:

8  L-Old Man River, T. Warren  3-1  *1 1 *3

2  L+Mystical Walter, Leonard  4-1  *1 9 5

6  L-Outkawdangruswatrs,Krueger  6-1  3 1 5

5  L-Lil Al Bundy, Husted  5-1  4 5 6

7  L-Cool Like That, Seekman  8-1  7 3 1

1  L_Lastdukestanding, Hiteman  8-1  *1 2 4

3  L!B C’s Bad Cat, Shehan  10-1  4 4 4

4  L-Fantastic Rock, P. Curtin  12-1  2 6 1

10  L-Bestnotlie Hanover, Lackey  12-1  1 *2 6

9  Who Seen Bolt, Wilfong  25-1  8 5 5

OLD MAN RIVER is in top form and he can get the job done up close or again in come-from-behind fashion. MYSTICAL WALTER bows for his new connections. When he’s right he can rattle off a big mile. OUTLAWDANGRUSWATRS likely has to be caught again.

TENTH: PACE, COND, NW $7,500 LAST 5, PURSE $6,500:

6  L+Dinky Dune, P. Curtin  3-1  *1 1 1

4  L!Feelnlikearockstar, R. Warren  7-2  7 2 3

5  L!Royale Rose, Krueger  4-1  2 2 2

8  Chip Again, T. Warren  9-2  *3 2 3

2  Cole Heat, Hiteman  8-1  1 8 5

1  L-Sir Mammo, Wilfong  8-1  1 2 2

9  L-Holdingallthecards, Leonard  12-1  9 1 5

3  L-Wondrous Sport, Seekman  20-1  5 6 6

7  L+Full Moon Rising, Lake  20-1  7 8 4

10  L-Delight Fashion, Franco  20-1  8 5 4

DINKY DUNE had a banner 3-year-old season and looks like he could be ever better at four, FEELNLIKEAROCKSTAR back from Indiana and well placed to do some good. ROYALE ROSE had a 25.3 last quarter in his sophomore debut at Hoosier. Meets older horses tonight.

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $5,000 LAST 5, PURSE $5,500:

8  L!Extravagant Art, Krueger  7-2  2 4 1

10  L!Fiveknuckleshuffle, Seekman  3-1  7 6 *5

6  L+Jerrico, Leonard  4-1  1 *4 *2

1  L+Master Of Desire, T. Warren  6-1  *1 6 4

9  L!Dixie’s Boy, Hiteman  8-1  6 3 4

4  L!Yankee Bounty, Rogers  8-1  6 7 5

5  L!Lodi Machette Man, Wilfong  12-1  2 1 3

2  L+Lieutenant Steve, Lackey  12-1  2 5 4

4  L!Yankee Bounty, Rogers  8-1  6 7 5

3  L!Pistopackinpiper, Husted  20-1  10 5 7

7  L!Endeavors King, P. Curtin  30-1  7 7 8

EXTRAVAGANT ART trying hard and another big effort may get the job done this time. FIVEKNUCKLESHUFFLES was chasing much better. Post the worry but still should be respected. JERRICO dug in nicely. Maybe he’ll handle this hike.

TWELFTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,500, NW 6, PURSE $4,750:

9  L!Twinkle Like Astar, T. Warren  9-2  5 7 5
