Streaking Hoboken Hanover heads feature;
Woodbine Jackpot Hi-5 847K carryover
Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 - Mark Ratzky, publicity – Cal Expo Harness

An Open II Pace headed by the red-hot Hoboken Hanover and a simulcast of the Woodbine Jackpot Hi-5 with an $847,458 carryover and a mandatory payout are among the main attractions on Saturday’s Watch and Wager LLC program at Cal Expo.
First post for the 12-race program is 6:10 p.m. The headliner goes as the sixth event on the card while post time for the 11th race at Woodbine is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. Pacific Time. The Jackpot Hi-5 at Woodbine is a 20-cent minimum wager with a low 15% takeout rate.
Looking at the Cal Expo feature, Hoboken Hanover comes into the contest riding a four-race winning streak while steadily climbing the class ladder. He is owned and trained by Denise Maier with husband Tim once again in the sulky.
The 8-year-old son of Cam’s Card Shark started his recent skein with a March 8 victory while racing with a $5,000 tag, then came back to take his next pair in optional $6,000 claiming events, including a lifetime best 1:52 1/5 mile on March 22.
Hoboken Hanover moved up to the Open I for last week’s assignment and did the stalk-and-pounce to perfection for Maier, as he won going away by a length and three-quarters over odds-on choice St Lads Lotto that evening.
Rounding out the field are Jazzmanian Devil, Bettormeboy, King Of The Crop, Laissez Moi Passer, Mar Dream, Real Attitude and Cosmos.
Next week, the racing schedule will find a return to Saturday and Sunday night programs.
