Race 1

(4) ANNUITY showed life at the level last out and has every right to move forward against these. (2) MODERN XHIBIT gets post relief and that most likely will help his cause. (3) SO BAD IM GOOD returns to Yonkers where he has done his best running.

Race 2

(1) WILD AGAIN Gelding put in a nice effort at Pocono last time out. This should be a better spot for this 4-year-old and the rail should make him a serious threat. (2) AZOREAN ART swung wide and mowed them down for all the glory recently. (7) CAN'T IT BE ME was sent down the road in his last trip for the victory.

Race 3

(1) SCOOTIN FOR JOY should appreciate the move back to the fence and this pacer can boss these down the road. (4) ANISTON SEELSTER led most of the way but was nailed for win honors last time around. (3) SAGE N did flash speed as the chalk last out and could make some noise in the final stretch run.

Race 4

(1) BEAUTIFUL LADY moves down in class and has the fence. Mare has the early zip to make tonight a winning one. (3) CINAMONY leaves the 8-hole for a cozy post and Brennan stays. (6) KNOW IT ALL gets a tough post but is very capable against this group.

Race 5

(1) BETTOR N BETTER Mare gets the luck of the draw and with her tactical speed she can take this with Bartlett at the controls. (6) JUNGLE GENIE N Almost took all the marbles but was caught at the wire and had to settle for place money last out. (3) MASSIVE ATTACK A has scored in her last three starts; not out of this despite the rise in class.

Race 6

This is a powerful Burke trained entry starting with (1A) MOTHER OF ART. She was used up in the early stages in a Tioga stakes event last time out and she seems to have a fondness for the Hilltop; ready for action. (2) SEAFOOD LINDA got the job done at the historic Goshen oval last out and could have a say in the outcome. (1) DIME A DANCE could leave or stay off the pace and strike; big threat.

Race 7

(7) RAMPAGE JACKSON moves up in class off another fine victory last out. Gelding moves back to the 7-hole however his form is outstanding and if all goes well 8-year-old should keep on his winning ways. (2) GALLANT SEELSTER led most of the way but was nailed for the score last out. (4) SAMS ESCAPE was second best recently and could make some noise in the final run.

Race 8

(4) AL RAZA N took charge approaching the half but might have ran out of gas in the stretch drive and settled for fourth money last time around. Pacing mare fits well in here and with a well rated drive she can get the job done. (8) MEDUSA has taken home top prize in her last five outings and the 8-hole should not be a problem where she won an Open event at the Meadowlands three trips ago. (6) REGIL ELEKTRA was sharp in her latest with a second place finish last time out.

Race 9

(5) HIPNUMBERONE She has been sharp in her last three outings and now this 4-year-old mare gets the services of Jason Bartlett to get this gal back to greet the cameraman for pictures. (4) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE drops a notch in class in hopes for a return to the winner's circle. (2) LUCYS PEARL was quite good from the 8-hole last out for the place spot.

Race 10

(5) JAILHOUSE JESSICA Easy victory in her last start now this trotting mare moves up the ladder. Her form is sharp and Mr. Brennan has the assignment; gets the call. (2) MONROE COUNTY Sharp for the placing against better company recently and she appears to be a big threat. (1) HASTY PROFFITT Philly invader gets post relief and that should help his chances in this event.

Race 11

(1) ENCORE DEO might have pushed the button too soon at the 3/4 pole and was no match to the winner Cut N Paste last out at Tioga. Now the pacing filly makes her return to Yonkers where she was a game second on May 16th. (2) GHOST RUNNER put in a mild rally for the show spot in her most recent outing and is knocking at the door. (4) TIME ON MY HANDS makes her return to the races off two fair qualifiers at the Meadowlands; might need one.

Race 12

(5) TOTALLY RUSTY Mare put in a mild bid last out and there should be enough speed in this for her to pick them up and mow them down; gets the call. (8) VELOCITY VESPA Five down the road victories in a row makes this gal the likely favorite; post hurts but is very capable. (3) GROUNDED could move forward off her last third place finish last out.
