Ron Uchman’s Hawthorne analysis for Sunday, October 10th

Race 1

5-AVASARALA drops and heads back to the main track. She hasn’t raced on dirt since March and hasn’t been very effective since 2020 but think she can come around at this level. 1-HOODWINK looks like the best speed. She tends to run out of gas but the track has been favoring speed so far and she might be so far ahead that she forgets to stop. 3-SPECIAL CONQUEST is a stellar 1 for 48 but she has finished in the money another 20 times. Maybe.

Race 2

2-SON OF GRACE looked pretty strong on the lawn but the race has been switched to the main track. However, must still respect his form and his connections. Can graduate. 3THIRSTY OWL stopped badly in Ohio in his last race but ran well in his two races at AP prior to that last. Showed he can run on the main track. Could be poised to upset. 11-CAUSEIMCHOCOLATE had some decent races in Minnesota. Connections were probably hoping this race got moved to the main track. Has to overcome the outside post but would imagine there will be some scratches to his inside which could help.

Race 3

2-LUCKY SHOT never had a shot when he unseated his rider soon after the start in his debut. Had been working well going into that race and had a bullet drill coming out. Adds blinkers for this. Deserves a second chance. 8-TRIPLE CHROME beat only two in his debut but that race likely set him up perfectly for this. Races on dirt for the first time. Expect marked improvement. 9-MAGIC MONDAY has been training well for his debut. His barn doesn’t pressure them to win early but all that come from the barn are ready to run. He could graduate at first asking.

Race 4

The connections of 2-HUSH Y’ALL are probably happy this race got moved to the main track. He had never raced on turf before and this will be his first start since he got claimed by them. He is a dirt specialist. That could give him an edge over the rest in here. 5-PRESENT OF HERO is fresh off a victory on the AP turf but he has been good on the dirt here in the past. He’s been effective all year when racing at the right level. He could prove tough to beat in this one. 10-SEVEN SEVENTEEN is hard to overlook. He just reeled off three wins in a row. Those races were on polytrack and he never won in his five races here but he should be given the benefit of the doubt in his current form.

Race 5

10-ALMAFUERTE has been in good form downstate and she finished in the money in all four of her previous local races. She had only one slow drill since her last race at the end of August but guessing she’ll pick up right where she left off. 9-GHAALEB’S SICILIAN is another that has been in good form at Fairmount and another returning from that freshening with only one drill. She has also done well here in the past. Figures. 3-HOPPESTRY finished in the money in her last four races between AP and Indiana. She had a win and a third from her three races here. Meets a bit easier today. Could be the one.

Race 6

14-JEFF THE LION was entered for main track only and his connections got their wish. His good natural speed should allow him to get a forward position despite drawing the outside post. Would imagine there will be a number of defections with this race coming off the weeds. He isn’t a lock but he is probably the one they have to beat. 4-LAND MARK DEAL is primarily a turf runner but he does have a victory on the main track. A couple of good drills since his last start should have kept him on his toes. Figures prominently. 5-COCKALORUM won his last two races. Both were on turf but he has run well on Hawthorne’s dirt track. Could run them down.

Race 7

10-MR KELLY has had only one race since March, a claimer on the lawn, but he just missed in that event. He had limited races on dirt and little success but he faced better in all of those races. This field is highly competitive but think, at his best, that he’ll take them. 5-LT. JUNIOR GRADE meets winners for the first time but he did look sharp in his maiden victory. Gets Lasix for this race. Santiago stays aboard over a runner that appears more highly regarded. There much be a reason. 7-WISE KHOZAN, from the same barn as Lt. Junior Grade is another fresh off a maiden victory. He’s been in good form for months. Expect that to continue.

Race 8

The speedy 8-TOTALLY DOVISH won three of her five races and finished second in the other two. Although her victories and one of her second-place finishes were all speed, she came from out of it in her debut to finish second. Have to figure she’ll be a late factor on or off the pace. 4-FIELD LETTERS could be poised to take advantage if the projected heated pace does develop. She’s been in great form at AP, winning three in a row and finishing in the money in her last couple. She just missed in last as the favorite. Can make amends. 5-FOX FREY didn’t handle the turf in last but she has been competitive in the vast majority of her other races. She’s likely to go off at a long price. Should be considered, at least in the gimmicks.

Race 9

3-TWIRLING ROSES dominated when dropped back into maiden claimers in his last at Canterbury. He had a couple of modest drills since that race but you know his barn brings them ready. Minnesota-bred 4-SILVER DASH has finished out of the money in only one of his six races this year. He’s turning back in distance for this. Seems likely to finish with a ton of run. Can earn his second victory. 5-FLORIDA FLASH is another turning back in distance. He broke his maiden here back in April. Might awaken in his return.
