Ron Uchmanís Hawthorne analysis for Saturday, October 9th

Race 1

3-HARD COMPANY, like most in here, makes his second start. He didnít show a lot in his debut and beat only one rival but think the longer distance of this race will suit him better. Regally-bred 1-AULENTI split the field in his debut but he races for a barn that doesnít press their runners to win early. Heís another likely to improve with experience. Could live up to his pedigree. 2-STONEVICIOUS could have a lot of upside. He finished third in his lone race, a short sprint, but was gaining ground when the race ended. Should relish the extra distance of this race.

Race 2

2-LONG STATION gets the nod. He raced well here last fall and this spring, though his recent races at AP and Fairmount leave a lot to be desired. However, he has had a couple sharp recent drills and heís facing a weak field. Might come back around. 3-EASTER MUSIC faces his easiest field in quite a while. Heís another whose recent form has been off but heís another who has done well here in the past. Like the top pair, 1-RIPE ATTACK has a history of running well at Hawthorne. Would like hi better if he had more than one drill in the last six weeks but he could still be ready for this weak group.

Race 3

7-WILL KNOWS could take advantage of all the speed in this race. Like most of his rivals in here, heís been having a great year but so many of the others have only been doing well on synthetic tracks while he has been good on both surfaces. He also appears to be the best closer in a field filled with speed. 1-STORMINSIDE and 5-PITAMAN race for the same trainer and both love the front end. Storminside won four of his last six races, finishing second in the other, while Pitaman scored in four of his last five. Both are capable of wiring the field.

Race 4

This race is scheduled for turf but it has already been switched to the main track because of considerable precipitation. Not sure if many, or any, will scratch. This race is filled with speed but still going to take a front runner. 9-PACKED HOUSE drops to an easier level. Though this race was scheduled for turf, heís never really been a turf runner, though he has a win on the lawn. Heís likely to face plenty of competition for the front end but think he will outlast them all. 1-WHEREíS JORDAN could play the roll of upsetter. He is a turf runner primarily and thereís a good chance heíll scratch but, if not, heís going to have a fast pace to run against. 14-MINNESOTA LUCKY could be tough if he draws into the race. Most of his success came on the lawn but he had two wins and a second in his last three races on dirt at Canterbury.

Race 5

8-BIRDMAN RICHIE could wire the field. He led most of the way in his first two races but ran out of gas late. Cuts back in distance for this. Might never be headed. 2-AFTERMATH has been training forwardly for his career debut. His barn does well with first timers. Could give top choice all he can handle. 3-DARE GOES A DEVIL-drops in class, turns back in distance, and heads back to the main track. He didnít get close in either of his races but his debut race turned out to be a ďkeyĒ race and he simply ran out of gas late in that last turf mile. Could finish this with a full head of steam.

Race 6

Donít know if 5-RUSSIAN MAFIA is going to stay in this race with it getting switched to the main track but she has been facing better runners all along. 10-SERENE wins the pedigree war. He showed little in his races at Saratoga and Kentucky Downs but ran very well at AP, including an eight-length maiden win in a race that was switched to the main track. 9-WINDY CITY GIRL could attack late. She didnít show much in her only two main-track starts but she has been in good form since getting claimed by this barn.

Race 7

3-SOUPER HIGHVOLTAGE has reeled off four wins in a row and generated some hefty speed figures along the way. Heís meeting plenty of other speed in here but he isnít likely to contest the lead. Instead expect him to press the early pace and start to make his move midway down the stretch. 9-JAMMING CAMERON could be the best of the speed. He scored in six of his eight races this year and finished second in the other two. Heíll have to deal with other speed but nobody gets them out of the gate and holds them together better than rider E T Baird. 12-FOLLOW THE SIGNS will be coming late. He didnít fire in last in a race won by top choice but he had plenty of excuses. He has done very well here in the past. Could surprise.

Race 8

7-HURRICANE HIGHWAY is a slim pick in a wide-open race. Sharp connections claimed him from last and they do quite well with their first-time claims. All the speed in this race should set up perfectly for his late running style. Could fly by them all. 2-WOODLAND WALK is hard to gauge. This 10-year-old is loaded with speed and past class. He hasnít raced a lot the last couple of years but he has been highly effective when he does start. 1-RICHIESGOTSWAGGER is always a factor when he races at the right level and this is where he belongs. Good speed should have him tracking from the start. Not sure he can win this but he certainly fits in the vertical gimmicks.

Race 9

4-DARLIN ROSIE is back at her favorite track. She won seven of her 20 starts here and finished in the money another eight times. She finished second in three of her last four races between Fairmount and AP and should be primed for a big effort here. 5-SHOWIT raced only once since March and that was a turf effort at AP in August. But she has been training well and she is taking a class drop. Would expect a strong effort from her today. 8-KENAI COOL is capable on or off the pace. Itís been two months since his last start but he has been training regularly. Could fit in well with these.
