Email

MEET STATS: 198 - 859 / $1,262.30 

BEST BETS: 25 - 82 / $129.70

Best Bet: ROYAL ENGAGEMENT (10th)

Spot Play: ANALYZE (7th)

 

Race 1

(2) MUSTANG MACH N has been in the exacta picture in his last four tries and clearly this gelding can boss this group. (5) ADDWATER was wide approaching the three quarters and just missed glory by 3/4 length. (6) SHADIOS most likely will be on the engine; the one to catch.

Race 2

(2) FRATERNITY put in an even finish from the 8-hole and was third best last out. Pacing gelding appears to be rounding to form; the pick. (3) DUKE DID IT was very game in his most recent outing and he should make some noise against these. (5) MISTER ACCUMULATOR lasted for show money in his Philly finale; watch out.

Race 3

(3) MACHERATI leaves the outside post and gets class relief. Gelding could take this with a well judged drive. (6) SPORTS BETTOR rallied up the cones to get up in time for win honors last out; big player again. (4) WINNING IS SWEET has good early zip and clearly this guy is not out of this.

Race 4

(3) DOUBLE YOUR BET has put in two sharp performances at Saratoga and now he moves his trade downstate. Gets a cozy post to work with and with a favorable trip he could get the job done. (1) TRACK MASTER D gets class relief and the moves to the fence; big threat. (6) MAINLAND KEY N 11-year-old is knocking at the door based on his last two trips to the post.

Race 5

(2) STEVENSVILLE'S last start was very dull but the good news is the 5-year-old moves back inside where he has done quite well and this is his second start off the dropdown; threat at his best. (3) DRUNKEN DESIRE A Gelding lost second in his last start but was very game; major player. (1) LAWGIVER HANOVER closed strongly to land the show spot in his latest; don't overlook.

Race 6

(8) KRISPY APPLE Pacing mare tired turning for home last out but clearly this gal seems to be ready to get back to the winning groove just like she did on August 5th. (6) SELL A BIT N was sharp in her last start at Pocono for the place spot; main danger. (5) TESSA SEELSTER was on the front most of the way but did not have enough gas in the tank and settled for place money last out.

Race 7

(1) ANALYZE makes her return to the Hilltop where this mare got the job done three starts back. Gets the fence where she beat Open foes at Tioga four trips ago. (4) VELOCITY VESPA moves down the ladder and that might help her cause against these. (5) JAG OUT was second best against lesser company in her latest; don't count her out of this.

Race 8

(3) SHORTSTACKED showed life in his last start flashing speed for a half and held the fourth spot. This 10-year-old has every right to get back to the winner's circle with a fine-timed drive from Brennan. (1) BULLET BOB has good speed and retains the rail; dangerous. (4) TRUE BLUE HALL closed strongly to nail down the victory at Saratoga last time around.

Race 9

(4) COWBOY TERRIER seems to be a perfect spot for this pacer where he just missed the victory by a head at this level three starts back. Ready to greet the cameraman for pictures. (2) RAMPAGE JACKSON is in the best form of his life and will take some catching in here. (1) TENDTOWIN has wheeled off two straight scores so this gelding must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 10

(5) ROYAL ENGAGEMENT was quite game in her last start finishing third but this pacing mare knows how to win at Yonkers and if she gets the favorable trip the rest will have to settle for minor awards. (7) MOSQUITO BLUE CHIP took charge right from the bell en route to victory in her last one; post hurts but she is very capable. (1) CINAMONY did not race badly last out and should appreciate the move to the fence.

Race 11

(2) TOBER is back with friends where this gelding put in a late rally for all the marbles three trips ago. Gets a good post and he should be poised to boss these for his sixth score of the year. (3) MONEY MAVEN Trotting gelding broke at the start and lost all chance last out but it was against much tougher; main danger. (5) WORLD CUP was second best in his 2016 Yonkers debut and has every right to put his best foot forward.

Race 12

(6) AL RAZA N Mare is knocking at the door and now she leaves the 8-hole and  should find the NW20000 ranks to her liking. (1) HIDDEN LAND was in front most of the way but the gas ran out and she lost by 3/4 length; contender. (2) CHEYENNE ROBIN is very consistent and has tactical speed; must be considered in all of the exotics.
