Meadowlands: Saturday 6/2 Analysis


CHAMPIONSHIP MEET STATS: 32 - 96 / $172.00

Best Bet: TAKEMEWITHYOU (13th)       Spot Play: OSCAR OSCAR (10th)

Race 1

(7) TRIPLE MAJOR raced well off the bench and should show even more tonight. (6) BLADE RUNNER won his last start at this level. (2) FROG JUICE didn’t race poorly last week. He just got caught in a faster mile.

Race 2

(2) ROCKWEILLER gets some much needed class relief. Though, the short price will make him hard to love. (5) JOE ROCKS comes off a good effort. (1) BESTJETYET kept up versus some killers in his latest qualifier. That effort should have him tight.

Race 3

(6) SASSY SYRINX was super in her career debut then made a break behind the gate last time. If she brings her A game, she could score at a price. (2) RIVERFEST deserves a lot of respect off her latest win. Plus the price might increase with Takter in the bike. (7) VANITY TREASURE is an improving young lady. (4) LOOSE DEUCE has early speed and that gives her an edge on some of these.

Race 4

(1) LITTLE BROWN FOX dug in very nicely in last week’s leg of the NJSS. It is always good to see a horse that wants to win. Also, Pierce gets in the bike. (7) GUCCIO has plenty of ability and could get lost in the wagering shuffle. (3) MARKET SHARE wasn’t quite as good as last week’s win suggests on paper; dangerous, though. (4) BIG CHOCOLATE and (2) VIC SMITH are also hard to toss.

Race 5

(5) PIROUETTE HANOVER looks like the clear one to beat. I’ll be keying her in most bets. (6) RAM ROCKER couldn’t last on the lead in her 2012 debut. Maybe she needed that race? She could be the value of the Casie Coleman trainees. (2) SARANDON BLUE CHIP gobbled up the dueling leaders last time. This gal has talent. (9) ROCKIN BELLE is an exotics must.

Race 6

(1) TIME TO ROLL posted a strong effort last time and could be any kind of horse. Let’s give him the narrow call over (8) A ROCKNROLL DANCE, who was awesome in his lone 2012 start. He simply powered away from his competition. (5) I FOUGHT DALAW is perfect this year and impossible to knock.

Race 7

(7) GAELIC THUNDER sneaks into this race as the condition was opened up for him. McDermott trainee is proven over this track and looks to have found a decent spot. (5) WESTERN TRADEMARK was a good second versus lesser last week. He can handle this group with the right journey. (2) TRADE EDITOR has a couple of starts in hand and could be ready to flaunt his class. (1) I WANNA GO FAST is capable of popping a big one at any time.

Race 8

(6) SHELLYSBLOCKBUSTER raced well in defeat last week and faces an even worse field this time around. (1) MUST BE THE BUNNY does well in bad fields from an inside post. He should be showing plenty of speed. (5) T M TOP GUN gets some class relief.

Race 9

(3) SOUTHWESTERN DREAM tends to wake up when dropped in class. I’ll roll the dice with him in this wide open field. (2) THEBESTOFJOEL responded nicely to the class break and addition of Lasix. (9) PANESTHETIC chased Rockem in a track record mile last time. That was his first start since December; improvement likely. (1) TOWNSLIGHT HANOVER is off a sharp score.

Race 10

(3) OSCAR OSCAR came up big last week and catches a field lacking a ton of early speed. He can steal the race tonight! (8) BIG BAM RAY brings a strong effort every week. If he doesn’t leave tonight, he’ll have his work cut out for him. (2) WESTWARDHO HANOVER qualified back well enough. Is he primed and ready?

Race 11

(4) ART FOR ARTS SAKE gets a good amount of class relief and with Miller opting off his price should be better, too. (6) WOODSTOCK HANOVER is making his second start since last August, and dropping, and gets a major driver change; hmmm. (5) BLUE CLAW moves to an overly aggressive pilot; anything is possible. (10) LETTHEROCKBEGIN took tons of money and won last week.

Race 12

(6) MAMBO ITALIANO was tackling much tougher foes at Saratoga. He should wake up tonight. (4) MILLINAIRE CAM returned from nearly two years off with a win. Notice that this guy has some class. (9) THREE TEN is capable at this level.

Race 13

(1) TAKEMEWITHYOU gets a ton of class relief and should wake up for trainer Ron Burke. (9) STRUNG OUT is the other dropper in the field; respect. (3) LEMON DROP HALL arrives in fine form. (5) SPECTACULAR MAN has a chance with a clean trip.
