Yonkers: Friday 7/22 Analysis


MEET STATS: 175 - 738 / $1,109.70   BEST BETS: 20 - 72 / $87.60

Best Bet: JONSIE JONES (10th)

Spot Play: SAINT WILLIAM A (2nd)


Race 1

(2) DYNAMITE DUDE A put in a mild rally for third money last time out and this gelding seems to be moving in the right direction; gets the call. (1) MUSTANG MACH N was very game to miss glory by only a nose. (3) AUTOMATIC SLIMS is knocking at the door based on his last two tries.

Race 2

(4) SAINT WILLIAM A might have pushed the button too soon last out. 13-year-old is in grand form and is quite capable of bossing this group at his best. (2) SMOOTH CRIMINAL was dull in his latest at Pocono but should appreciate the return to Yonkers with the 2-hole and Sears. (1) STOMPIN TOM CREEK stays on the fence and gets a softer spot to contend with these.

Race 3

(7) SOUTHWIND RICARDO seems to be coming around and good to see Dube with the return drive; he was very game two trips ago taking down place money; big threat (2) WE THINK ALIKE Pennsylvania invader brings tactical speed to the table and he must be considered. (1) JK ALLNITELONG should fare better from the rail tonight.

Race 4

(1) WILD AGAIN very game in the pocket to lose the victory by a head last out. Now he makes his return to the fence and could be ready to greet the cameraman for pictures. (5) ULTIMATE G has wheeled off two straight victories; dangerous. (4) HALTON HURRICANE Sharp in his latest but could not get to the winner The Rock last time out. 

Race 5

(4) GRAND MASTER gets serious post relief. Gelding has fine speed and Bartlett reunites with this 8-year-old pacer; the pick. (5) ERIDANUS N Delaware valley shipper was second best in his last two trips to the post; main danger. (7) ROCK TO GLORY could be right in the mix based on his last two starts.

Race 6

(6) SELL A BIT N Even finish in her last try and two sharp efforts in a row gives this mare a shot for win honors. (7) MEDUSA led most of the way but was nailed for glory in her last start. (8) MACH IT A PAR is on quite a roll scoring in her last three trips to the post.

Race 7

(1) GROUNDED clearly is knocking at the door. Was sitting in the pocket most of the way but could not get to the winner missing by a neck last out; ready for redemption. (4) MY TALLIA IDEAL moves to the 3-hole and that should help her cause against these. (7) SWEETNSINFUL did show good speed at the Meadowlands last week; not out of this.

Race 8

(5) KID PK leaves the 8-hole for a much better post and this gelding knows how to get into the winner's circle; with a perfect drive 6-year-old can top these with best effort. (1) SPORTSKEEPER moves to the rail and is on the dropdown; main danger. (7) GALLANT SEELSTER got the job done last out via the pocket. Post hurts but is very capable.

Race 9

(4) NARCIAN JEWEL Pacing mare raced evenly in her latest against open foes upstate. Returns to Yonkers where she has done her best running and with a favorable trip she can get the job done. (1) SNOW CONE A rallied strongly to nail down the show spot last week and now the rail should move her forward. (5) HIPNUMBERONE put in a late rally to lose the score by a neck; watch out.

Race 10

(5) JONSIE JONES has hit the board in her last four tries and this pacing mare is in fine form. Could top these with a rate and score tactic. (4) HIDDEN LAND raced evenly for fourth money last time around; could have a say in the outcome. (2) MASSIVE ATTACK A Four sharp efforts in a row and this mare must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 11

(2) LUMINOSITY flashed speed at his Pocono finale. Gelding moves back to Yonkers for trainer Burke and his main man Brennan will have the assignment; ready for action. (3) SOMEBODY AS put in a mild bid to land down the show spot in his last try. (4) MARCH AWARENESS Philly invader has good speed and gets the services of Bartlett; watch out.

Race 12

(4) CINAMONY was an even fourth in her latest now she stays in same company and could make tonight a winning one with a well placed drive from Mr. Brennan. (3) JAG OUT was on the engine most of the way but ran out of gas in deep stretch in her most recent outing. (6) ALHAMBRA closed too late and had to settle for the placing losing glory by a nose.
