MEET STATS: 34 - 132 / $248.80

Best Bet: FOREVER WILD (3rd)    Spot Play: UP FRONT KELLIE JO (12th)

Race 1

(7) JK KINAHURRA Last time out at the Big M the five-year-old showed good speed; tonight Brennan is at the helm. (4) BADLANDS AND ART needs to go back to his Dec. 12 event. (1) LAYTON SEELSTER Jersey invader draws the fence.

Race 2

(2) ROOKIE MISTAKE charged late from post 8. Trotter can put his best foot forward. (4) CREDIT BLUES scored in his Chicago finale. (5) PETTY HANOVER In his latest at Dover the gelding closed well.

Race 3

(1) FOREVER WILD Quite sharp in his previous trip and he retains the rail. Loses Brennan but has a capable pilot in Goodell. (8) AWESOME ABE Down the road score last time around. This gelding is consistent. (6) M K G moves to the Pena barn and Brennan gets the call.

Race 4

(2) FAMILY SPIRIT N Pacing gelding just got up for win honors. He has the speed and Bartlett stays aboard. (4) CUTTY SHARK needs a good trip to contend. (5) NF INDEPENDENCE gets a better draw.

Race 5

Jersey invader (1) MANO CORUNTO returns to Yonkers with speed, the rail and Brennan. With the inside draw (3) HANNAH ISABEL is a contender. (2) LEGERDEPAN will have a say in the outcome.

Race 6

(3) KAYLAS DREAM Pacing mare has early zip and with the 3-hole she can make some noise with a perfect trip. (7) PANCLEEFANDARPELS will be charging late. (5) SHAKY HANOVER The return to Yonkers and top pilot at the controls can help her chances.

Race 7

(1) ASTREAS NOTICE moves to the fence and Bartlett keeps the faith. (3) NAUGHTYTILTHEEND moves up in class off a sharp score. Going-away winner (4) P NOTE BLUE CHIP might like it here despite the escalation in class.

Race 8

(5) SON OF NORDIC led every step of the way at this condition and this trotter is in solid form. With a better trip (3) DEFINITELY MAMIE has a shot to contend with these. Nice score last out for (7) ROSE RUN HOOLIGAN and he clearly fits in here.

Race 9

Speedy (5) WHATA HUSTLER tried in the stretch drive in his latest. Trotter reunites with Bartlett in hope for better results. (4) STAND GUARD Trainer Mark Ford pushes the down button. Jersey shipper (2) LIVE JAZZ fits with these.

Race 10

Experiment at the Meadolands did not work out for (2) SLOMOTION. The good news is she has early zip, is back to the half-mile oval and sharp pilot Bartlett takes over. (3) SHESA BRAGN DRAGON put in a game effort in her last try. Despite the rise in class (4) ISLAND TERROR can be right in the hunt.

Race 11

Nine-year-old gelding (3) TASTY MAX draws better and reunties with Goodell who scored two in a row with this trotter. (1) RINGSIDE LAURYN wheeled off two straight victories for the powerful team of Brennan/Pena. (5) NEWPORT VOLO's last two efforts were sharp.

Race 12

(4) UP FRONT KELLIE JO did not disgrace herself in the Cape & Cutter series at the Meadowlands. Top pilot Brennan returns where he got this gal to victory last time here. (2) TOMORROWPAN Game effort in her last two tries puts her in the mix. (3) BEST BOSS should fare well with the post relief.
