Yonkers Analysis: Tuesday 2/21/12


MEET STATS: 48 - 192 / $339.90

Best Bet: M K G (9th)    Spot Play: ITSJUSTABEGINNING (3rd)

Race 1

(3) LUDI CHRISTY Gelding needs to return to his old self and he catches a weak group. Maybe.  (1) CLASSIC AMBITION Nice rally for third in his recent start. The likely favorite. (5) IM THE GOTO GUY Game effort in his last try.

Race 2

(2) RODEO RED did not race badly in his last start. Gelding has a great chance to put his best foot forward and get the job done. (5) LORD BURGHLEY was nailed in his last try and is the main danger. (1) JEREMIAH TROTTER is on a roll with his second straight score.

Race 3

(7) ITSJUSTABEGINNING set a good pace in his last try. Nine-year-old gelding can be ready for action with a perfect trip. (5) MOBILE Quite sharp in his last two scores and is a big threat again. (3) JERSEY DAN Down the road winner in his recent start.

Race 4

(3) TIGER BAIT returns back to Yonkers and catches a weak group. We will see if Brennan will opt to take this guy down the road for all the glory. (6) QUICK BELL Dover invader can have a say. (2) PRINCE BUBBA completes the trifecta.

Race 5

(1) ROYAL TAGA should appreciate the post relief and this trotter can boss these at best. (4) FOUR STARZ F put in a sharp effort in his last one and is the one to beat. (3) HARDROCKENJESSICA moves down the ladder and gets Bartlett.

Race 6

(5) MY CIVIL DOLLAR Gelding has tactical speed. He can move forward with these given a fine-timed drive from Manzi. (2) LISTOWEL Easy score in his recent trip and is the likely favorite at post time. (3) REDSIDE MANNER was second best in his last start.

Race 7

(3) FAMILY SPIRIT N did not get the trip he wanted last time out. With some racing luck, this guy can put in a top performance if Bartlett grabs a good spot. (6) INDIAN GIVER N just got up from the victory in his recent try. (5) MIDNIGHT GAMBOL held on for win honors last week and will take money again.

Race 8

(6) PANFERMIN FESTIVAL catches a so-so group of pacers and this gelding will need a perfect trip to top these. Quite possible. (1) GRAB A CRAB put in a late rally in his last start. (5) MCMARVEL Jersey invader could be ready with Brennan at the helm.

Race 9

(1) M K G returns to the fence where he got the job done three starts back.  Down the road for the victory tonight. (4) PLAYIN FOR KEEPS Gelding could be right in the hunt. (6) HUSTLE ON OVER could land a share.

Race 10

(3) MEDOLAND SNUFFY is better than his last trip to the post. Pacing gelding can mow these down with a good trip. (6) THE ENCOUNTER has speed and is the one to beat. (4) VERY UPSET RICHIE could have a say.

Race 11

(2) MARKY MIKE Gelding is knocking at the door. He has good tactical speed and can boss these at his best. (5) CYCLONE CULLY N Rallied mildly for the show spot and is a big threat with Brennan. (1) KANDI CHIP gets post relief

Race 12

(2) VALLEY FEVER is knocking at the door. Four-year-old has speed and can top these with a perfect trip. (1) CLASSIC CAMELOT last two starts were sharp and he will be a big player from the rail. (5) WEIGH THE ODDS Game effort in his last try.
