Yonkers Analysis: Thursday 2/16/12


MEET STATS: 44 - 168 / $317.50

Best Bet: SKYWAY HANOVER (3rd)   Spot Play: DYLAN ROCKS (1st)

Race 1

(2) DYLAN ROCKS Gelding recently had a nice run for the score and you will not get 7-2 tonight, but a fair price. (1) WON NITE IN VEGAS draws the rail and gets Brennan and he would appear pretty logical in this spot. (5) HANDFULOFJUNO looked good for the victory when seen here last out but the post might hurt.

Race 2

(1) MARIANS MAN put in a sharp qualifier at the Meadowlands. Now he moves to the small track and should be ready to roll with Brennan at the helm. (7) S F CIRO Laterza trainee is remarkably consistent. (5) TANGO DANCER could prove to be best of the rest.

Race 3

(5) SKYWAY HANOVER tore up the track in her last two trips. Deserving choice. (6) LINDEN BEAUTY rallied nicely for the place last time around but she has to overcome post six. (1) OUR GIRLS CHANCE N raced well when last seen at this level.

Race 4

(4) I LUV IT Meadowlands invader drops and this is not an impossible spot for her. (2) JK GERONIMO Sharp victory last out and she appears to be deserving of that respect on the morning line. (7) HALLY Speedy seven-year-old miss will have to work hard from post seven.

Race 5

(2) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN His last start might be an indication he's ready to take another step forward. (5) HARDROCK KID returns locally with class relief. (1) ENCHANTED has good early trot and is capable of better.

Race 6

(1) LADY YACHTSMAN The good news is she returns to Yonkers where this gal has done her best. See no reason why she can't move forward in this spot. (2) SAD TUNE needs to go back to her Jan 26 start to contend. (3) SO CONFUSING Brennan stays and gets post relief.

Race 7

(4) PERFECT SCAM Asher trainee reeled off three in a row at Monti and was a sharp second recently. Obviously he's got a live shot tonight. (5) MARION MISS JULIE She was impressive for win honors last week and looks best of the rest. (1) GIRL BAND Upstate invader is on a roll.

Race 8

(3) RUNAWAY ROSE Beaten chalk at the Big M and now she moves to the small track, gets Bartlett and figures to be forwardly placed. (1) SAYMYNAMESAYMYNAME she drew away in dominating fashion when we last saw this pacing mare. (4) MAKE A BUNDLE N Drolet trainee is sharp and consistent.

Race 9

This seems like a good spot for (8) TIGERS TOO GOOD, who broke in his latest at Dover against Open foes. He's got a live shot despite post eight. (2) FOLK TAIL was a runaway winner against lesser company recently. Might not be that easy tonight. (1) SIR SIRO is still a steady check-earner.

Race 10

(1) KISSMATT folded from post seven last week. The good news is this pacing mare returns to the fence and she does not need the lead against these to win. (2) GABRIELLES GIRL steps up off a dominating win. (7) FROM THE START has plenty of back class.

Race 11

In his recent trip to the post (3) BIG SKY DOMINO used up his speed and folded in the stretch drive. Should be sitting no worse than the pocket from this spot. (8) TWIN B CAVIAR Lou Pena pushes the down button. Looks best of the rest. (1) BANK PRESIDENT Post relief and the rail can help his chances.

Race 12

(3) SENTBYTHEANGELS 11-year-old miss gets another try at this level for Team Pena. With a return to her Jan. 26 start, it could mean trouble for the rest. (1) LETS GO HIGHER She just held on for win honors in her recent try. (6) TU SEI BELLA went wire-to-window but it won't be so easy tonight.
