I play Hawthorne as my plan “B” track most of the time. I spot play, and look for value. Saturday offers up a full complement, and you better dial up your data early to get ready for a great day of racing in Cicero.

I like some runners, and after looking at my W/P data, I am starting to fall in love with some sweet plays indeed…

Let me begin with Race #7, the $100,000 Buck’s Boy Handicap going 1 1/16th. The event is shaping up nicely, and is worth the look… Begin with #3 Stonehouse (2-1). He sports a 61 speed rating with a (+) symbol, and that means good things are coming. His last three efforts have yielded a 54, and he looks solid. Ran in the G-2 Hawthorne Gold Cup against open company, and the drop in class should do the trick… He worked a bullet on October 25th, and that signals ready and waiting to me…

There are six $100,000 races, and it should play out to be a solid day of Illinois racing. Pretty much the best of the best is on the shelf and waiting for the Breeders’ Cup. But, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some great action to play. This track offers some great value, and it is yours for the taking. Just get your data in hand, and be sure to utilize the track condition dropdown. There has been some storms from Chicago all the way to Alabama. So, before leaving the house or punching in your bet, look at the weather, and get ready to roll…..

Good luck!
