Hawthorne Race 4, 5 ½ furlongs Claiming $5,000 (4:40 ET)
Best Value Play: #10 Eyema Delight (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Rahab Your Soul (3/1)
Other Contenders: #5 Johannesboom (5/2), #7 Bari’s Pulpette (6/1)
Analysis: Rahab Your Soul is down to a level where he should easily win after facing much tougher for quite some time. Johannesboom comes back after a rest and runs for the highly successful Michael Reavis barn for the first time since claimed. Bari’s Pulpette has been camera shy but leaving her off the ticket may be a big mistake. Eyema Delight runs for Divito and gets blinkers that should get him in the race sooner and could make the difference at the wire.
Hawthorne Race 7, 6 furlongs Claiming $10,000 (6:10 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Misty Miranda (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Case Cracker (5/1)
Other Contenders: #9 Sing Kitty Sing (7/2) #10 Mr. Mabee’s Baby (4/1)
Analysis: Case Cracker comes in from Keeneland and takes a significant drop for the successful Rivelli barn. Sing Kitty Sing will be dangerous with her speed and could take them coast to coast. Mr. Mabee’s Baby goes for three in a row and appears to love Hawthorne, plus she gets a perfect post to be a close up stalker. Misty Miranda has finished in the money 50% of the time and has faced tougher all year long.
