Selected features, stakes coverage and the never-ending TwinSpires’ horses-to-watch list (H2W) share keys to success in exotics, win, place and show payoffs.

Thursday, May 11

Mohawk Miles

Each week, we highlight probable longshots from Mohawk Park (WoMo) in this features section. If they do not win at first crack, we add them to the H2W the following week as a bet-back while adding new possibilities to this Mohawk Miles section.

Race 4—Deadly Delight; Clever entry at this level? Bold, at least.
Race 6—Thundering Jim; Coming around and dangerous beaten favorite.
Race 8—Djimon; Could repeat winning ways in touch step-up move.

Power Plays

Hoosier / Races 11, 12, 13, 14

Hit the late Pick-4 at Hoosier Park on Thursday and split the $1,000 daily jackpot.

Here are our contenders for the Pick 4. We feel they help exotic payoffs so consider them when building a Pick-4 ticket, as well as for single-race bets.

Race 11

Pure Luck comes from a sharp win that rightfully hoists her to this level.

Race 12

Four pacers noted last week are stacked here. Riggins Time was in a dead heat for fourth as a well-backed contender and deserves a shot off of that effort.

Vel What A Star comes from the also-eligible list and is raring to go.

Rockinforreal just missed dropping down into this class.

Go Viral stands a chance to show he’s worth battling better than wanton West-Coast maidens.

Race 13

Maddie's Jet Lady gets a pass for last week’s dud mile; she’s better than that.

How much class does It's Corona Time have over these? It could be a lot, and the crowd may not feel she can show it from far out against inside speed. Overlay time?

Race 14

This is a tough one to nail if you are alive in the P4. It would be a race to pass alone, but we must make a commitment. Momentstruth carries the burden. A drop down, a stressful use of speed last out, and supported enough two back to single against this motley crew.

Power Plays


Our contenders in the following three races are available for a personal parlay (to win, place or show) and single-race exotics for any tickets you build).

Race 1

Ali’s tough trip strongly defeated the favorite last out and may offer a good price stepping up.

Race 2

Anarchy Hanover saved ground and flew late to get second at 7-1 between two favorites.

Race 3

Treasure Mach was short of foot late due to a mid-mile challenge, a good enough excuse to forgive that loss.
