Race 1

(3) MASTERSON Gelding seems to be rounding back to his winning form and there's a good chance he could mow these down if given a favorable trip. (1) PASS THEM BY N is knocking at the door based on his last two starts; big threat. (5) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N took the pocket route on his way to victory last time out; player again.

Race 2

(2) HOLDINGALLTHECARDS is back at Yonkers where this pacer seems to have better success and with a well judged drive he can greet the cameraman for pictures. (1) NEWBIE gets serious post relief and Bartlett stays in the bike; main danger. (5) VALIDUS DEO was an easy winner in his Freehold finale and he must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 3

(1) EIGHTEEN was sharp in victory at this level and from door number seven to boot. Now the veteran moves to the fence seeking his second straight score; using. (3) SOS JUSTIFIED rallied strong to nail down the show spot recently; threat. (4) HUGH HEFNER N could be tailing off a bit but still this gelding is capable; watch out.

Race 4

(1) ARI ALLSTAR did flashed good speed and might have been used up in the early stages last time around. Now he gets the luck of the draw and he could boss these down the road. (3) SOVEREIGN BANNER N moves to the 3-hole and this might be what he needs to contend in here; we shall see. (4) GOKUDO HANOVER came outside at the 3/4 pole on his way to victory last time around; must be considered.

Race 5

(2) SPORTS LIGHTNING Sharp efforts in his last two starts puts this pacer right in the scope of getting the job done over this group. (1) PHIL YOUR BOOTS was sent down the road in his Pocono finale for all the glory; player again. (4) OUR JERRY LEE N gets post relief and that could help his cause; maybe.

Race 6

(5) MACH IT A PAR Seven year old miss had a bad trip last out but she seems to rounding back to winning form; ready for action. (8) LISPATTY has scored two straight victories; post hurts but she is very capable. (4) MACKENZIE A will be closing in the final strides if she gets the right trip; possible.

Race 7

(3) HIDDEN LAND Mare looks to be in the right spot to top these at her best with Bartlett at the helm. (2) KNOW IT ALL was sitting a 3-hole trip to take home top prize last time out; factor again. (1) FRANNEY LOVE DAT was late on the scene to grab second money in her recent outing; not out of this.

Race 8

(2) HOOVES ON FIRST did not fire in her last try but the good news is she moves to door number two and clearly she is very capable of greeting the cameraman for pictures. (4) MISS IRISH ROSE A has been facing Open foes upstate and she must be respected in this event. (3) BETTOR N BETTER will need a better trip in order for her to be involved with these; watch out.

Race 9

(1) DALTON DID IT moves back to the fence where this gelding was a very game second three trips ago; the pick. (5) A SWEET RIDE was sent down the road in his latest for the victory. Gets a tough post but he is sharp enough to be a factor again. (3) WYNBERG COURAGE N drops a notch in class and that could help his chances so beware.

Race 10

Will take a shot with (2) EDEN PAIGE N to put her best foot forward and she is capable of getting a favorable trip. (3) ARMBRO COURAGE N is knocking at the door based on her last two tries; big threat. (5) BETTORHAVEANOTHER moves down in class and it's good to see Brennan remains in the sulky; don't overlook.

Race 11

(5) SECRETS OUT N leaves the 7-hole, drops in class and has tactical speed. She fits well in here, so with a favorable trip, she can make tonight a winning one. (4) LAKEISHA HALL She also gets class relief and will most likely be on the engine; big threat. (2) COUSIN MARY is back at Yonkers and she did not race badly at Philly; not out of this.

Race 12

(2) DEWAR N SODA Mare seems to be heading in the right direction, so a perfect trip can put this gal right back into the winner's circle. (3) VENUS DELIGHT took charge right from the start but did not have enough gas in the tank in her recent trip to the post; big player. (1) SELL A BIT N moves all the way to door number one and she is on a serious dropdown; beware.
