FOR FRIDAY, MAY 14 AT HAWTHORNE

Best Bet: Rising To The Top (4th race)

First Post 7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND, NW $2,500 (ICF $3,125) LAST 4, PURSE $6,600:

3  L-Primo Giovanni, Leonard  5-2  3 *1 6

8  L-R Bazingga, T. Warren 3-1  4 2 3

7  L-So So Delightful, Seekman  7-2  *2 3 *5

4  L-American Chrome, Bender  9-2  2 9 8

6  L-Hot Rod Dylan, Wilfong  8-1  3 8 6

2  L-I’m An Athlete, Husted  10-1  *45 3

5  L-Northern Angle, Bell  15-1  7 9 2

1  L-Rocky J Squirrel, Shehan 15-1  2 4 8

PRIMO GIOVANNI was Casey’s pick over the Nos, 2 and 6 pacers. Horse couldn’t clear last week. R BAZINGGA gave way in a start he needed. Consider again. SO SO DELIGHTFUL bet down in his loss. He’ll likely be at better odds this time.

 

SECOND: PACE, CICERO CLAIMING SERIES, LEG 1, DIV 1, CLMG $5,000, PURSE $5,000:

5  L-Mckee Creek, Wilfong  2-1  3 1 6

4  L-E R Vincent, Leonard  4-1  3 2 7

3  L-Terror Of The Nite, Lackey 7-2  8 8 2

1  !Crash And Burn, T. Warren  5-1  4 6 8

7  L-In To The Chase, Seekman  6-1  1 5 3

6  L-Gabe Henry, Stewart  8-1  7 7 1

2  L-Mykonos, Shehan  8-1  8 10 1

MCKEE CREEK had a big try in his initial start of the year. E R VINCENT should be a factor for his new driver, TERROR OF THE NOTE a veteran who seems well placed.

 

THIRD: PACE, CICERO CLAIMING SERIES, LEG 1, DIV 2, CLMG $5,000, PURSE $5,000:

3  L+Crankin It Up, Wilfong  2-1  2 4 6

1  L+Shadyman, Seekman  5-2  2 2 7

6  L-To The limit, Leonard  4-1 1 2 5

7  L-Shark Control, T, Warren  6-1  4 6 5

6  Bluffs Image, Shehan  6-1  5 4 7

4  L-Charming Blitz, Stewart  8-1  2 5 5

2  L-Who Dat Love, Husted  15-1  6 9 6

CRANKIN’ IT UP comes off a nice win and fits well again. SHADYMAN has speed from the inside to merit consideration. TO THE LIMIT gets Casey at his lines. Could be coming on late.

 

FOURTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,500 ($3,125) PURSE $6,600:

6  L!Rising To The Top, Seekman  7-5  7 7 7

3  L!Hilltop Ginger, Husted  4-1  3 8 7

5  L!Why Ask Why, T. Warren  6-1  6 10 4

2  +Frontier Muffler, Wilfong  6-1  7 1 1

1  L+Pace Seelster, Shehan  15-1  7 7 4

4  L-Lima Ginger, Long  10-1  3 8 7

7  L-Super Pac Hanover, Stewart  20-1  7 6 9

8  L_Redneck Rally, Wingard  20-1  6 1 5

RISING TO THE TOP is the class and it can tell tonight. HILLTOP GINGER in from Hoosier is a possibility. WHY ASK WHY can come up with a nice race at times.

 

FIFTH: PACE, ICF F & M, NW $1,001 LAST 4, PURSE $4,400:

6  !Pretty Iris, R. M. Avenatti  3-2  8 2 4

4  !Winter Gram, T. Warren  4-1  9 3 6

1  L!Shelly On My Mind, Stewart  3-1  9 6 6

8  !Roberts New Life, Seekman  8-1  6 5 7

5  L!Art Angel Baby, Franco  12-1  7 6 8

7  !Sporty Miss, R. Warren  15-1  4 6 7

3  !Tempest Heart, RS Finn  15-1  9 5 4

2  L+Beamer N Bud, Shehan  15-1  7 9 7

PRETTY IRIS may be in cheap enough to turn her fortunes around. WINTER GRAM benefits from a start and is a consideration. SHELLY ON MY MIND did race well at Hawthorne last year,

 

SIXTH: PACE, F&M, CICERO CLAIMING SERIES, LEG 1, CLMG $5,000, PURSE $5,000:

2  L!Patricks Cookie, Wilfong  2-1  10 1 9

8  L-Casa Miasa, Smolin  6-1  7 1 7

1  L-Karefree Kara, Stewart  8-1  5 3 *2

3  L!Kinda Like Kori, Husted  6-1  7 9 8

7  L!Bad Medicine, Leonard  4-1  7 9 8

9  !Party Belle, Seekman  15-1  8 5 1

PATRICKS moves inside for his new driver and looks placed in this claiming series. HOPE HOTSPUR was pushed back. Dropper may offer good betting value. CASA MIASA in from Hoosier and may be a factor.

 

SEVENTH: TROT, THE BEA FARBER FINAL, PURSE $16,600:

9  Rockyroad Aldo, Husted  2-1  1 2 9

5  Reign And Shine, Jo Patton  7-2  1 3 4

2  L-Justa Nother Bag, W. Avenatti  6-1  3 8 5

2  Fox Valley Elicit, T. Warren  6-1  4 4 3

4  L-Joe Joe’s Violet, Seekman  20-1  5 4 9

10  L-Easy Flo, JD Finn  20-1  3 7 5

1  L-Lousinuitm Stewart  20-1  4 5 8

ROCKYROAD ALDO will have to work harder to repeat but maybe he can get to the front again. REIGN AND SHINE stayed flat and closed strong. A repeat is very possible. JUSTA NOTHER BAG likely on or close to the front again.

 

EIGHTH: PACE, COND, NW $4,000 (ICF $5,000) LAST 4, PURSE $8,000:

5  L-Soho Wallstreet A, Wilfong  9-5  3 5 7

1  Lucksrealdeal, Lopez  10-1  5 1 9

3  L-Party’s Jet, Franco  20-1  7 1 6

SOHO WALLSTREET is a one-time sub 1:50 pacer. Well placed for Hawthorne debut. MYSTERY DRAGON must avoid being too far back again.  ROCK STEADY RON can leave in a hurry and paced some fast miles in past years.

 

NINTH: TROT, THE DARYL BUSSE FINAL, PURSE $16,500:

2  Fox Valley Specter, Seekman  3-1  2 *2 1

9  RSVP, Wilfong  4-1  *1 2 2

1  L-The Papa Bear, Husted  9-2  4 3 *5

8  L-She Loves Tojiggle, T. Warren  20-1  3 6 9

4  Lous Livia, Franco  25-1  5 4 10

FOX VALLEY SPECTER hurt by 10-hole. Benefits from the start and this significant post shift. RSVP could go out and grab another spot near the front and win right back. THE PAPA BEAR hurt by the second tier and the leisurely fractions.

 

TENTH: PACE, THE WALTER PAISLEY FINAL, PURSE $16,300:

4  Cassie’s Marie’s T T, T. Warren  5-2  2 1 8

5  Nora Tova, Wilfong  3-1  *1 2 6

9  Wildcat Delight, Leonard  7-2  *11 4

1  Dirtylittlelies, Bender  8-1  4 4 8

2  L-Ashlees Fine Girl, Husted  12-1  4 5 8

8  L-Style And Spirit, Bell  15-1  3 5 6

10  Sister Said, Flowers  20-1  2 7 2

6  L-Pootie Cat, Stewart  20-1  3 8 8

7  L-Yankee Joanie, Smolin  25-1  5 4 7

CARRIE MARIE’S T T needed outing may see her not be collared tonight, NORA TOVA bet down and breezed. She’s a major danger. WILDCAT DELIGHT came out ready. Mare may be heading out in a hurry tonight.

 

ELEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $4,000 (ICF $5,000) LAST 5, PURSE $8,000:

5  L-Fox Valley Ren, Leonard  5-2  5 3 5

8  !Some Nobody, Seekman  15-1  6 4 9

7  L-Rock N Tony, Bender  15-1  4 4 7

FOX VALLEY REN may be an easier trip away from a winner’s circle stop. JERSEY JIM was in too tough. He isn’t tonight. JACK ROGER had some success in Indiana. He is a consideration.

 

TWELFTH: PACE, COND, NW $1,000 (ICF $1,250), PURSE $4,000:

8  L!Park Official, Shehan  3-1  6 2 8

1  L+Heartland Desire, Stewart  15-1  8 8 5

5  L+Flashy Dude, Long  20-1  7 6 8

PARK OFFICIAL needed last week’s start. He’s in soft tonight. LUCKY CRUSADER an old-timer who should enjoy the drop and tonight’s better starting point. ROCKIN EDDIE likely will have to be caught again.  New driver.

 

+-Class hike. !-Class drop. L-Lasix user. LL-First time Lasix.
