Older Pacers Parade At WoodbineWoodbine harness presents four-and-five-year-old pacers of both sexes in leg 1 of two major series. For the mares, there is the Damsel, with a trio of miles on Friday, Feb. 24. For the males there is a double-header of divisions for leg 1 of the Cam Fella.
The series named after one of the sport’s stalwart pacers and certainly one of its great studs commences on Saturday, Feb. 25 with a pair of miles. The Cam Fella, leg 1, features nine of the big guys. Many of these will be performing in some of the top stakes for this division throughout the year, though in the richer events there will be the likes of those older than five.

The Feb. 25 no-takeout Pick 4 at Cal-Expo is one more giant step to profitland [sic] if we are right about the following contenders. Feel free to increase the size of your ticket by adding to our suggestions.
(6) High Maintenance was off and pacing solidly at 18-1, leading to three-quarters before caught. (8) Dawnlikeslillies put in a bad mile, finishing fifth but should do better here.
(4) KD Rowdy One had a sharp tank of speed early last week which is a good sign even though he tanked and finished sixth. He was 25-1. (5) Ailene’s Prince was on the attack from the outside and could not make up the lost ground at 7-1; a danger here.
(6) Roger J won outside of the Pick 4 where we had him and was powerful at 13-1. A repeat, though maybe at less the price, is in order (7) Sterling Chris should come back to form after being 10-1 and not able to handle the 10 hole.
(1) Wicked Beach made up a lot of ground to complete an exacta last week at 16-1 and although he has some competition in this mile he could utilize the inside to romp.
