Yonkers: Friday 3/9 Analysis


MEET STATS:  62 - 249 / $474.90

Best Bet: SON OF NORDIC (8th)      Spot Play:  PEMBROKE PRAYER (10th)

Race 1

(6) JERSEY DAN Nine-year-old has some speed and with a perfect trip, he can make tonight a winning one. (1) BEECHWOOD WAYNE needs to return to his Feb 13 start to contend with these. (7) JAZZ BAND moves down in class and Brennan takes over.

Race 2

(1) SHOELESS WHITE SOX closed late from the eight hole last time out. Moves to the fence and good to see Bartlett stays aboard. (4) ADONIS B Trotter powered home to victory in his recent try. (2) PLAY FAIR should do quite well from the two slot.

Race 3

(5) NEWSAM Old pro is on a roll with two straight wins and a second in 2012. Moves up a notch but clearly can keep on his winning ways against these. (2) CLASSIC AMBITION went down the road for win honors last time out. (3) MCARDLE PARK gets post relief.

Race 4

(3) MEDIA DARLING closed strongly from the eight hole to grab the show spot in her recent trip to the post. Five-year-old can boss these at her best. (6) CLASSIERIVERBOAT N did put in a game try at the Meadowlands two starts back. (1) HAWKS CRY ELECTRA tired in the stretch drive recently but could contend from the fence.

Race 5

(3) S F ACEINTHEHOLE Gelding has sharp speed and has every right to return to his Feb 3 tactics. (4) GENESIS ROYAL OAK Two strong wins in a row makes him a dangerous contender. (1) WHATA HUSTLER could be right there from the rail slot.

Race 6

(7) NAUGHTYTILTHEEND She put in a good effort in her last try. Moves up the scale but her form is good enough to take this at best. (8) KEEPERS DESTINY got the job done wire to wire last time out. (2) RAMONA DISOMMA could have a say in the outcome.

Race 7

(2) WITCH IS BETTOR raced gamely in her last start and now she moves to the two path with Brennan keeping the faith. (4) LILLYWHITES moves down in class and that could help her chances. (8) STORMUNN could land a share from way out there.

Race 8

(8) SON OF NORDIC Very sharp trotter can handle any post and is the one to deny. (6) H AND MS HIT just got up for the victory last time around. (7) RINGSIDE LAURYN She got the job done in her recent effort for Team Pena.

Race 9

(2) DONT BLAME HER Pocket trip to victory last time out for this pacing mare. Her form indicates she can take another step forward at this level. (4) SAVE MY SHARK moves down the scale and that makes her a big player. (1) BEST BOSS just missed the score in her last start.

Race 10

(7) PEMBROKE PRAYER His last two starts were quite sharp. Gelding is capable of getting the job done with Brennan at the controls. (5) BENNS SURE THING Eleven-year-old held the place spot recently. (4) FOLK TAIL has hit the board in his last four tries.

Race 11

(5) RIDGE JUMPER Surged late to grab the show spot. Pacing mare can rate and pounce over this group. (3) MEMEME raced evenly in her recent trip. (1) SUMMER SNOW Five-year-old miss can fare well from the rail post.
