Yonkers: Friday 1/13 Analysis


MEET STATS: 3 - 11 / $14.40

BEST BETS: 1 - 1 / $2.80

Best Bet: LYONS AGAIN (2nd)

Spot Play: WRANGLER MAGIC (5th)


Race 1

(8) ANNUITY makes his return to Yonkers where this gelding has done his best; can get the job done despite the move to door number eight. (6) TAURANGA was very wide and he lost all chance last out at the Meadowlands; could be a player against these. (3) ABBEYLARA gets Brennan and could make some noise with the right trip.

Race 2

(1) LYONS AGAIN His last trip was an indication he is ready to put his best foot forward. (3) DATELINE HANOVER put in a nice rally for the place spot last time around; threat. (7) THE SPY should appreciate the move to the half-mile oval; watch out.

Race 3

(1) SER JON draws well tonight and the gelding was a fast closing third at Saratoga two starts back; the pick with Brennan at the controls. (5) GALLANT SEELSTER If you throw out his last trip, this 7-year-old visited the cameraman for pictures on 12/16 & 12/23 respectably; main danger. (8) MIGHTY PERUVIAN N has good tactical speed and fits well in here. Post hurts but is very capable.

Race 4

(5) THISGUYSAROCKSTAR Very sharp for the victory at the Big M last out. Gelding is good enough for the repeat. (3) N J LAW gets class relief and Brennan and that could help his cause; maybe. (2) WINTER BLAST is knocking at the door based on his last two tries.

Race 5

(2) WRANGLER MAGIC Canadian invader has fine speed and she gets a cozy post to work with; ready for action. (1) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON has put in two solid efforts in a row and appears to be a big threat against these. (4) CINAMONY came outside at the 3/4 pole to run them down for all the glory last out.

Race 6

(4) BETTOR N BETTER Pacing mare moves up in class off her last sharp try. Good to see Bartlett stays with this gal, so a move forward is well within the realm. (5) HIDDEN LAND Very consistent mare has always been right in the trifecta picture and must be considered in all the exotic slots. (6) TESSA SEELSTER broke at the 1/4 pole and she made a great recovery for the victory recently.

Race 7

(3) BAZOOKA TERROR was facing Open foes at Saratoga last time out and was sharp for place money. With a favorable trip, she can make tonight a winning one. (1) DEUCES FOR CHARITY took charge at the 1/2 mile marker and never looked back in her recent outing. (5) ICOMMANDMYSPIRIT Meadowlands shipper was late on the scene to rally for third missing glory by a neck; not out of this.

Race 8

(6) BETTOR ROCK ON N flashed good speed, sat in the pocket and came up the passing lane to get the job done recently at Philly. Two straight is not out of the question. (1) VALIDUS DEO comes back to Yonkers from Philly, gets post relief and Bartlett with the drive; big threat. (3) SAPPHIRE CITY Gelding finally leaves post eight and trainer Burke calls on Brennan; watch out.

Race 9

(2) MILKY WAY RAE was facing tougher of late and now she finds a good spot to get back into the winning groove. (1) OUR ELS DREAM N Sharp and consistent mare moves to door number one; big player. (3) FOR THE LADIES N came outside at the 3/4 pole to take charge on her way to glory last time out.

Race 10

(1) RANCOUSY comes by way of the Meadowlands and took the pocket route on his way to victory last out. Retains the rail and 6-year-old is very capable of repeating. (6) BETTOREVER is knocking at the door based on his last two outings. (4) BADIOU HANOVER should appreciate the drop in class; not out of this.
