Yonkers: Friday 2/26 Analysis


MEET STATS: 50 - 205 / $369.10 

BEST BETS: 4 - 17 / $19.80

Best Bet: WANNA ROCK N ROLL (4th)

Spot Play: HIPNUMBERONE (10th)

Race 1

(4) TRINE HANOVER Sears sent this gal down the road but was nailed for all the glory by Hustleonhome in her latest; sharp enough to take another stab at these for all the marbles. (2) HUSTLEONHOME had live cover and mowed most of these down for the score last out. (1) LEXUS ARTIST was sitting in the pocket most of the way but could not get close to the top two in her recent outing.

Race 2

(7) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY took charge right from the start on her way to an easy victory last out; moves outside but stays in same condition. Two straight is not out of the question. (2) MISS ALI MACH N will need a favorable trip just like in her January 28th start to contend with these. (3) LOCAL ART did not have steady progress when she was up on the rim at the half last out; could make some noise based on her tactical speed.

Race 3

(1) LOVINEVERYMINUTE gets serious post relief and drops a notch in class; has every right to boss these just like she did from the fence on January 28th. (2) FIRSTCLASSFLIGHT most likely was used up in the early stages last out; needs to revert back to her closing punch two trips ago. (6) HAPPILY EVER AFTER comes by way of The Meadowlands and on February 5th, this gal was a sharp second; post hurts but seems logical.

Race 4

(2) WANNA ROCK N ROLL Pacing mare is quite sharp based on her last four outings; sitting in the pocket most of the way, but could not get by the winner in her last trip to the post; ready to get back to greet the cameraman for pictures. (1) BLUSH HANOVER closed fast to land the show spot last out and should fare well from the fence tonight. (3) RIVER RUNS THRU IT briefly took the lead, stayed in the pocket and made a rail run for all the glory in her last try.

Race 5

(2) ZIGGY SKY was in a duel for a half, flashed a wicked pace and the gas had run out at the 3/4 pole for this gelding last time around; moves now to the 2-hole and despite the rise in class, he fits with this group. (5) GOTTA LAUGH AGAIN was sent down the road turning for home but could not sustain that speed of his for the final stretch run last time out. (6) MCCITO two starts back, this guy missed the victory by only 1/2 of length; moves down the ladder and that might help his cause.

Race 6

(2) DUNE IN RED has shown life in her last two starts against most of these open mares; if she gets a favorable trip combined with a fine-timed drive, she can make tonight a winning one. (6) ROCKN RUBY N took the pocket route home for all the glory last time out. (7) REGIL ELEKTRA led every step of the way but was nailed at the wire by Rockn Ruby N in their latest trip.

Race 7

(7) ALL ABOUT KISSES put in a very game effort for the placing last out; moves outside but this gal seems to be in excellent form. Can't fault her if she moves a step forward. (2) EYRE HOSTESS N was late on the scene to nail down the place spot last time around. (4) HANDSOFFMYCOOKIE makes her return to Yonkers after a long stay at Delaware and has hit the board 3 of 5 starts this year.

Race 8

(7) DELIGHTFUL DRAGON very sharp for second money last out and most likely was used up early; with a different tactic from Holland, this 5-year-old mare can make her return to the winner's circle. (4) JADED DREAM was in over her head in her most recent outing so the drop should give her some confidence against these. (3) MASSIVE ATTACK A is another one on the dropdown and good to see Brennan with the return call.

Race 9

(8) LYONS SHADOW is on a roll scoring her third victory in a row; now she moves to the 8-hole but if the early leaders have a complete meltdown, then she will mow them down for the four-peat. (4) JENNAS PATRIOT flashed good speed from the pocket but could not get past the winner Hazmatt in her last try. (1) CRUISINWITHMYBABY just got up for the score via the pocket route last time out.

Race 10

(2) HIPNUMBERONE showed signs of life in her last start. Mare might be ready to put it all together against these if given a favorable trip. (5) ART IDEAL did not fire in her latest but could contend with a return effort from January 28th. (1) GROUNDED rallied strongly to get the job done at 19-1 recently.

Race 11

Will give (8) MATT MAJOR a shot to make an impact with these rivals; did put in a mild bid for fourth last out and does have tactical speed to hopefully grab good position early. (2) FRIDAYNIGHTFLIGHT has wheeled off two straight victories and is very consistent; figures despite the rise in class. (1) FITZ'S Z TAM should be right in the mix given the post relief in here.

Race 12

(3) SO NICE gets a cozy post to work with and this seems to be a perfect spot for this pacing mare to get back to the winner's circle with a fine-timed drive. (2) GIANNAS DELIGHT is another that gets post relief, has early zip and Sears is back in the sulky. (6) ICOMMANDMYSPIRIT Sharp efforts in her last three trips puts this gal right in the mix.
