Yonkers Analysis: Thursday 2/9/12


MEET STATS: 34 - 132 / $248.80

Best Bet: I LOOK SPECIAL (2nd)   Spot Play: COLLAGE (10th)

Race 1

(7) FOUR STARZ Q Tough beat for this four-year-old gelding last time out. Should be clear sailing tonight. (2) ALLMYROWDYFRIENDS Gelding closed late for the place spot. Main danger. (4) GENERAL MCARDLE showed mild pace in the stretch drive last time around. Don't overlook.

Race 2

(6) I LOOK SPECIAL She scored easily in her last trip to the post. Ten-year-old trotter stays in same condition and should boss these. (4) KONCHIE put in a good late rally in his last one. Can have a say. (1) MONTANACHAMPIONNE She should do much better with the post relief.

Race 3

(8) WITCH TRIALS Pacing mare was second best last time out. With her speed, she could put her best foot forward from her outside slot. (3) HIGHLY THOUGHT OF She did not race badly in her initial try at Yonkers. Big threat with Brennan taking over. (6) DINGLE BAY Her last start might be an indication that she is coming around.

Race 4

(2) STYX DELIGHT N was overmatched from the eight hole. The good news is she moves back inside where she has done her best racing. (1) MEDIA DARLING got the job done in her Michigan finale. Dangerous from the fence. (6) SOGGY SOGGY Dover invader could land a share.

Race 5

(5) M S HEATHER M Trotting miss had a tough uncovered trip last time out.  With the right trip, this gal could take these trotters to task for the victory. (4) BATALJ LAUNCHER Delaware shipper has the tactical speed to contend with this group. (3) REDWHITENBLUESTONE Sharp in victory at the Meadowlands last week. Not out of this.

Race 6

(5) MY DRAG QUEEN showed some late pace in her last try. Good to see trainer Yogi Sheridan call on George Brennan to drive. Chance with these. (2) NATURAL WOMAN N Tough beat in her last trip. Has good early zip. Main danger. (1) SAD TUNE took the pocket route home to victory. Two in a row is not out of the question.

Race 7

(4) RULE BY STRENGTH Gelding showed no speed in his last try. Maybe Brennan can get this eight-year-old in gear tonight. (3) MASTERS DEGREE did not fire in her last try. Capable of turning things around. (2) CC MISTER C His last victory was from post two. So watch out.

Race 8

(2) GABRIELLES GIRL She was quite sharp in her last trip to the post. Pacing mare draws the two hole and Manzi stays. (7) NIFTY ACE Five-year-old miss could be right square in the mix with these. (1) SUPERSTAR DREAM Meadowlands invader is not out of this from the fence.

Race 9

(8) BIG SKY STORM has wheeled off two straight victories. Trotter is very capable of taking three in a row from his outside slot. (1) HARDROCKENJESSICA Jersey invader draws the fence. Big player. (6) CURLY TOP could be right in the hunt.

Race 10

(3) COLLAGE was flying late from post seven to grab the show spot in her last try. She moves back inside for this event. Could rate and pounce on these. (5) ANGELWITHNATTITUDE Delaware invader could have a big say in here.  (4) LIZZIES DREAM She gets class relief. Don't overlook.

Race 11

(1) BIG SKY DOMINO Good try in this condition last out. Trotter moves to the rail plus he has good early zip. (2) CARBON FOOTPRINT raced evenly in his last start. Could do better tonight. (8) BET IT ALL Gelding has been quite sharp in his last three tries. Don’t overlook.

Race 12

(4) JIMMY THE TERROR Down the road to victory in her last start. Pacing mare can boss these on the front once again. (3) SENTBYTHEANGELS Pena trainee just got up in time for the victory in her previous try. Big threat again. (2) LATE FLYIN N will be right in the thick of it.
