Hawthorne Race 7 6 1/2 furlongs Allowance 2L (5:48 ET)
Best Value Play: #8 Dancing Dove (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Skylarbdancing (7/2)
Other Contenders: #3 Battle Creek Lady (5/2), #6 We We Cherie (9/2)
Analysis: Skylarbdancing has high percentage connections and looks to be poised for a top stalking effort. Battle Creek Lady has speed but can also wait for the lead. She comes to fight in every race. We We Cherie is lightly raced and her first race this year was a solid effort. Dancing Dove won her debut with ease, posted a great work a few days ago and will get to stalk leaders from the outside.
Hawthorne Race 8 6 furlongs Claiming $4,000 (6:18 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Hallie Ruth (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #1 Foxie’s Sly Won (3/1)
Other Contenders: #4 Toast With Honey (6/1) #9 I Want Out (9/2)
Analysis: Foxie’s Sly Won goes for a tough barn and is handled by an excellent rider, won her last and may control the race from start to finish. Toast With Honey looks to be primed for a top effort and trainer uses a rider that has brought home the bacon before. I Want Out loves the Hawthorne strip and ran well last out after a rest, plus goes for tough connections. Hallie Ruth may not be the top candidate for the Winner’s Circle, but leaving her out of the exotics would be a mistake.
