Yonkers: Horses to watch for Apr. 9 - Apr. 14


Meet Stats: 17 - 68 / $104.10

Monday, April 9

HIGH OCTANE N (NW8000) - Decent second-pace effort despite chasing a runaway winner.

PFORTYSEVEN GIRL (NW2) - Pulled uncovered from last, grinded a long way and came up just shy in a solid try.

Tuesday, April 10

MCARDLES STAR ($12,500 Clm) - I know it was a pretty weak field of bottom-level claimers but he put in a decent two-move effort at 39-1 before tiring.

RUTHLESS ACE (NW5000) - Floated out and tucked, had a dead rival pull in his face, had to wait for clearance, finished well but the winner was gone.

Thursday, April 12

COSMO MADNESS (NW5000FM) - Sat in traffic, tried to knife through but never got a clear path.

Friday, April 13

WINBAK DREAM (NW12000) - Trotter has speed and is smoothly-gaited; one of these weeks she's going to find the right field and trip out for the win.

NAUGHTYTILTHEEND (Matchmaker) - Left uncovered past the half, challenged through a quick third panel and understandably tired.

FOUR STARZ ROE (Preferred FM) - Never saw the rail, grinded forever and came up half a length shy.

Saturday, April 14

POKER HAT (WO25000) - Veteran gelding rushed up uncovered into the rating leader, battled a long way and came up a nose shy.
