Yonkers Analysis: Friday 1/27/12


MEET STATS: 20 - 60 / $170.50


Race 1

(2) LORD OF THE BLING Sharp in his last try. Gelding fits well in here so he can move forward in this event. (1) BADLANDS AND ART draws better tonight and has speed to be a big threat. (4) HANDFULOFJUNO Game effort in his last start and that makes him a strong contender.

Race 2

(4) TRIPLE BARS moves to the four hole after three straight in the sixth path. Pacer did race well last time around. Can take this at his best. (3) WESTERN MAC has scored two in a row for dangerous driver/trainer combo. Capable of the hat trick. (1) DYLAN ROCKS held the place spot via the pocket. Not out of this.

Race 3

(3) CINDERELLA MAN Seven-year-old trotter draws back inside. Has the speed to take this group all the way for the score. (5) TSARINA was used up in the early stages last time out. Could turn things around tonight. (2) HOLLY HILL MASTER went down the road against lesser company in his previous try. Don't overlook despite the escalation.

Race 4
(5) MEDOLAND SNUFFY had some trouble at the start but recovered quickly to get the job done in his last start. Eight-year-old pacer is on a roll. Three-peat is not out of the question. (1) IRISH ELITIST returns to Yonkers with the rail and Bartlett gets aboard. Main danger. (6) GOING NATIVE raced evenly in his last one. Can land a share.

Race 5

(4) SPECIAL COMMAND Six-year-old has good early zip. With a perfect trip, he can make tonight a winning one. (1) SPECIAL HUSTLER draws the fence and Bartlett keeps the faith and stays aboard. Big threat. (6) RAPID STRATEGY Even finish in his last trip to the post. He's moving down the ladder so watch out.

Race 6

(8) PANCLEEFANDARPELS Goodell might have pushed the button too quick. Eight-year-old miss returns to the eight hole and with a better trip, she can boss these pacers at her best. (6) DELIGHTFUL DIVA flashed good speed and held the place spot at the Meadowlands. Dangerous. (7) BREAKHEART PASS was quite sharp for the victory last time around. Two in a row is not out of the cards.

Race 7

(4) JASPERTHAT A Anderson pushes the down button on this pacing mare. She has good tactical speed and if the right trip comes her way, she can rate and pounce over these. (3) MY GAL MYKENNA Did not fire in Jersey so the move back to the Hilltop and Brennan taking over can be a positive. (1) HAWKS CRY ELECTRA had good speed against lesser and could contend in here.

Race 8

(5) H AND MS HIT Game effort in his last start. Trotter can rate and pounce given a perfect trip. (2) FOUR STARZ CREDIT is better than his last flop and Brennan sees fit to stay aboard. Big threat. (1) DEFINITELY MAMIE Showed speed and tipped off the fence to get the job done in his latest. Don't count him out again.

Race 9

(2) SOUTHWIND SWALLOW Last two at the Big M weren’t bad. Pacing mare does have tactical speed and the good news is Brennan gets the call on this seven-year-old miss. The two hole is a big plus. (3) HULAS Z TAM takes a slight drop in class off her even trip last week. Dangerous. (6) UP FRONT CRUISER showed speed that will put her right square in the mix.

Race 10

(4) IDOL Down the road in her last trip to the post. She is sharp and has every right to boss these once again. (6) RAMONA DISOMMA will need a better trip to be a major factor in here. (1) PAY TRIBUTE Even finish in her last try. Not out of this with Brennan back at the helm.

Race 11

(2) WYGANT PRINCE Trotter rallied strongly for the show spot last week. With a perfect trip, he can mow them down at best for the score. (4) STAND GUARD just got up for win honors. Another forward move is not out of the question. Main danger. (7) TASTY MAX has wheeled off two straight victories. Major contender.

Race 12

(1) KEYSTONE KATHERINE was uncovered and still held the show spot in her last one. She now moves to the fence and has the tactical speed to get the job done at her best. (4) RIDGE JUMPER was second best last time out. Main danger for team Pena. (2) BEST BOSS Given the post relief, she will fare well.
