Race 1

(1) REMISSIONOFSINS This looks like a perfect spot for this gelding to get back into the winner's circle; flashed fine speed last out; threat at his best. (2) GALLANT SEELSTER is better than his latest and did get the job done down the road two starts back; main danger. (7) BULLET BOB Scored two straight at Freehold; exotics factor.

Race 2

(2) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN gets a cozy post to work with; should be geared up to make tonight a winning one. (6) PASADENA STAR Sharp at Saratoga; makes his return to Yonkers and could make some noise in deep stretch. (5) FOR YOU ALMOSTFREE was second best two trips ago; needs a favorable trip to contend; maybe.

Race 3

(5) AUCKLAND FLYER leaves the 7-hole for slot number 5; with his tactical speed he could mow these down; player. (3) BET THE MOON moves down the ladder and that should help his cause; major player. (2) SIGN TO INVERELL A just missed the victory by only a neck last out; not out of this by far.

Race 4

(6) MAINLAND KEY N showed good speed on September 12th; has hit the board 11 of 27 starts this year and with a perfect trip, he could take top honors. (1) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY raced evenly last time around; should fare quite well from the fence. (7) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N is on the dropdown and must be considered against these.

Race 5

(2) TWIN B SPEEDO did not get the best of trips last out; was a sharp second three starts ago when he just missed by only a neck; can take this at his best. (3) LIFE UP FRONT is knocking at the door based on his last two starts; his speed makes him a strong contender. (1) REGULUS N should do much better from the fence; we shall see.

Race 6

(7) JONSIE JONES Clearly this pacing mare is better than her previous try; with a favorable trip, she could mow these down when the smoke clears. (6) INITTOWINAFORTUNE got the job done last out at Philly; could have a say in the outcome. (2) SKIPPIN BY might have been used up in the early stages last time out; fits well in here. Beware.

Race 7

(7) STOMPIN TOM CREEK has picked up checks of late; he gets the services of Bartlett who was in the bike when this gelding was second best on August 28th; contender. (5) MUSTANG MACH N was quite strong for the victory in his latest; main danger. (6) UNCLE GOODFELLOW Three nice efforts in a row  puts this guy right in the mix with these.

Race 8

(2) IDEAL RACE surged late to grab the show spot last time out; moves back inside and that should help his cause; the pick. (3) SANTANNA ONE Gelding was sharp in victory last time out; threat again. (1) DUE WEST HANOVER used up in his last try but the rail slot will put this guy right in the mix.

Race 9

(2) MEDUSA was facing tougher pacers last time around and showed good speed to boot; should find this group to her liking. (4) SOLID QUEEN She held on to nail down the score recently; big player. (5) HER OWN LAND is better than her last flop; not out of this.

Race 10

(1) HICKORY ICON has hit the board 15 out of 25 starts this year; moves to the rail and this gelding should be considered against these. (8) DONAU has wheeled off two straight victories; post hurts but could contend. (5) SAMS ESCAPE was sent by Bartlett down the road last week for all the glory; figures despite the rise in class.

Race 11

(6) SUMMER INDIAN is on a roll scoring in his last two starts; now he takes his trade to the Hilltop and could keep on his winning ways with Brennan at the helm. (1) MUGSHOT JESS moves to the rail where he was third best here on August 15th; exotics factor. (3) SUMATRA has fine speed and will be the one to catch.

Race 12

(4) ELISAVETA N Pacing mare is knocking at the door; got the job done on August 27 with Bartlett in the bike; all systems go to boss these. (5) AL RAZA N Game effort for the victory last time around; must be considered. (2) ARODASI has been facing open foes of late; now she returns to Yonkers where she took home top prize on July 23rd; beware.
