Woodbine-Mohawk: $336K Carryover/Mandatory Payout Super Hi 5 | Friday, December 23, 2022

Christmas will come early for anyone who solves the Jackpot Hi-5 wager in Race 12 that carries a $336,533 carryover pool and a mandatory payout to cap the Friday, Dec. 23 card at Woodbine-Mohawk Park. For a 20-cent base wager, it’s well worth it to try and pick the top five finishers in the scheduled 12-horse field. Use our suggested $115 ticket below, or create your own. Here’s some notes to help shape your ticket:

YOURTHEONE sat a golden pocket trip, awaited room in mid-stretch and surged late to defeat five of the same rivals he meets tonight. THE BOSS SAID changed tactics and finished full of run in the 4-path to finish second. But the two morning-line favorites will start from the second tier if there are no scratches, turning the Jackpot Hi-5 into a wild scramble to solve. EMMETTS BUDDY caught the eye with a rail rally in the stretch. He was in tight late, squeezed through to get beat 1-1/4 lengths and galloped out far in front. HOWIES MAN wasn’t in the aforementioned race, but he rebounded from a disappearing act in his return to Woodbine-Mohawk Park two starts back with a wire-to-wire victory. He can make good use of his speed in this spot, too. MIDNIGHT MOOD is another longshot to consider, stepping up in class off a victory for a sharp claim barn. ACAPULCO SUNBURN came first-over at the half-mile marker, pressed the pace-setting favorite through a :27.2 third quarter and tired late.
