July 2nd, 2021

The July 3 program at Woodbine/Mohawk Park will end with a mandatory payout in the Jackpot Hi-5 in Race 11.

Well before that, however, there are many other multi- and single-race exotics to wager upon. We offer some suggestions (in post-position order) on horses we feel are worthy to add in tickets on other exotic wagers

Races 1 through 5 offer a 20-cent $10,000-guaranteed Early Pick 5.

Race 1

#7 Major Hill dips to this level, one he handled fine at Hoosier. #10 Siddhartha has been supported well at two levels in June with excuses for losing both. From the outside he may enjoy a smooth late path.

A 20-cent Pick 3 is featured for races 2 through 4.

Race 2

#5 Jabberwocky had the kind of late kick needed in this predicted speed event for freshmen. #7 Erinwood Yves is a colt by State Treasurer, a sire poised to send out some patient starters.

Race 3

#4 Pembrook Legacy N returns likely to avenge his loss as a beaten favorite.

A 20-cent Pick 4 is featured for races 4 through 7.

Race 4

#3 Dreamfair Arnie B is improving with every start, last time getting second faster than some of his foe’s winning times in this field. #8 Sports Section and #9 Im King Conn are dangerous from the outside in any early duels ensuing without them.

Race 5

#Legion Seelster was claimed from top-trainer Richard Moreau, but is still a contender after two close seconds from Victor Puddy. Great price is promised.

A 20-cent Late Pick 5 is featured for races 6 through 10.

Race 6

#5 Big Rich lost his first two in 2021, but his third could be much better considering the foes in this field.

Race 7

#5 Twin B Heart Throb needs to be taken seriously after two smart races, one a win. The same goes for PL Ozzy, winner of his last two.

A 20-cent Pick 3 is featured for races 8 through 10.

Race 8

#2 Lady Arthur has already proven she is a force to be reckoned with at three. #5 Mia Culpa can take this hike coming off of a win and will make a difference in the exotics.

Race 9

#6 Mayhem Hanover should make amends to backers who pounded him to win last time.

Race 10

#2 Cortez The Killer lost ground in a duel keeping the top and could get this one done with live cover.
