Yonkers: Friday 5/20 Analysis


MEET STATS: 122 - 526 / $765.70

BEST BETS: 13 - 54 / $54.30

Best Bet: AL RAZA N (6th)

Spot Play: ONE THROUGH TEN (4th)

Race 1

(1) WINTER BLUES gets serious post relief and this 11-year-old pacer is seeking his first score of the year; ready for action. (3) OR is knocking at the door based on his last two seconds. (7) ONTHECLOCK HANOVER Gelding has speed and could have a say in the outcome.

Race 2

(6) WAYNE THE LEFTY did not fire at all in his latest but he catches a weak group. If he goes on the engine it could be game over for the rest of these. (3) AUTOMATIC SLIMS Quite sharp in his last two trips and could be a major factor in here. (1) DVCFLYINGFRENCHMAN has the rail and this should be a better spot for gelding to contend with these.

Race 3

(8) SPORTING THE LOOK put in an even try in his last start. Now he moves to the 8-hole but with a favorable trip this pacer could mow them down at his best. (2) ROETHBLISSBERGER has good tactical speed and has hit the board 9 of 12 starts this year; threat. (1) BOX CAR JOHNNIE should appreciate the move to the rail and should make some serious noise with a return to his April 21th trip.

Race 4

(1) ONE THROUGH TEN this seems to be a perfect spot for this 7-year-old to greet the cameraman for pictures; gets the call with Dube with the return drive. (8) RU READY TO ROCK has been sharp in his last three tries; post hurts but is very capable. (4) BIG N BAD made a quarter nice move to the front but tried in deep stretch last out.

Race 5

(1) LYONS SHADOW moves up in class after her keen performance for win honors last out. She retains the pole position and despite the rise in condition she can take another. (3) SASSA HANOVER Two fine seconds in a row at the Meadowlands puts this gal right in the mix. (7) DEVIL CHILD was flashing good speed at Philly last time around; not out of this.

Race 6

(4) AL RAZA N now leaves the 7-hole for a cozy post and hopefully she will get the jump on these if given a favorable trip. (8) YAGONNAKISSMEORNOT was on her way to taking the Chip Noble at Miami Valley last week but was caught at the wire; figures to be the main danger. (5) SELL A BIT N was dull from the far outside last time out but the 5-hole should help her cause; maybe.

Race 7

(7) SKATES N PLATES retook at the quarter pole and that might have compromised his chances last time out. Clearly he is the speed of the speed in this event and if everything goes his way 5-year-old can get the job done. (1) LATOKA raced evenly for fourth money last out; could have a say from the rail. (5) STIRLING CADET will need a better trip then in his last try; we shall see.

Race 8

9-year-old mare (6) MACHO CHICK does know how to win races. Two starts back she was the boss down the road and of course she is quite versatile; the pick. (2) GROUNDED tried badly in deep stretch last week but she is capable of making a quick turnaround. (4) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP took off like a shot to the front at the 3/4 pole on her way to victory last out; don't overlook.

Race 9

(1) IDEALBEACH HANOVER was on the rim from the 3/4 pole and was very game to hold on for the place spot last week. Pacer figures to get a much better trip and good to see Brennan with the return drive; threat at his best. (7) GALLANT SEELSTER was all alone at the wire for his third straight victory; the main danger despite the rise in class. (5) KID PK was sent down the road last time out for all the glory.

Race 10

(2) TOBER takes another drop in class and now moves to the 2-hole. Gelding can mow these down with a fine-timed drive from Mr. Holland. (4) RED HOT HERBIE is very consistent and has good early zip; contender. (1) E R ELLIE Trotting mare closed down the center of the track to nail down win honors last week.

Race 11

(4) INVICTUS HANOVER This seems to be a better spot for this gelding to get back into the winner's circle. Dube had other options and chose to stay with this 5-year-old; at his best he could make tonight a winning one. (1) MARINER SEELSTER retains the rail and will need a better trip to make some noise in here; maybe. (6) KINDOFABIGDEAL was a sharp second missing the score by 3/4 length; watch out.
