Yonkers: Monday 11/13 Analysis


Best Bet: SKINNY DIPPER (11th)

Spot Play: MARCED MAGIC (5th)

MEET STATS: 452 - 1284 / $2,445.90

BEST BETS: 62 - 109 / $205.20


Race 1

(6) RICKY'S QUICKIE raced well in her local debut then followed that up with an aggressive try over at the Meadowlands; she's back at Yonkers in a questionable field and looms a player but good luck getting close to that 8/1 morning line. (3) IDEAL CLASSIC beat a weak field on the engine last week and clearly she's a player here. (1) HARPER CHOICE is erratic but she does get Bartlett in the bike tonight.

Race 2

(3) WINBAK WILLY T came up a bit short late after pulling the pocket to assume command; Erv Miller trainee can improve off that effort. (2) CHEYENNE REIJANE gets much-needed post relief and may look to take these the distance. (4) NATIVES BEST BET stopped badly on the lead last week but at least he's right back in the box and will be a much bigger price tonight.

Race 3

(4) DON'T STOP BELIEVIN  has looked very sharp in three starts for Team Bongiorno after shipping from Canada and she'll likely be favored here to convert. (5) FLYMETOTHEMOON was a game front-end winner last week for Burke/Brennan. (2) BAD MEDICINE may have gained some confidence up at Monti; playable with Bartlett driving.

Race 4

(3) FUTURE HEADLINES was undoubtedly facing better up in Canada and now debuts for Bamond; tread lightly, however, as she's off a month. (2) SNEAKY GIRL is another in a long line of Iowa fair shippers who have migrated to the East coast and performed well; player. (4) JK JAZZITUP blew away cheaper last out and may have to go even faster tonight.

Race 5

(1) MARCED MAGIC had plenty of late pace last out but had too far to come; post relief here sets him up for a winning trip. (3) SGT PAPPA DADDY looked good in his first two starts for Banca after shipping from Running Aces but then failed at 5 cents on the dollar; if you stick with him you'll get a much better price. (2) JUPITER JOHNNY will attract some attention after being timed in 1:50 4/5 over at Pocono.

Race 6

(2) BEYOMBO finished belatedly to land a minor share from the eight hole in his local return; prior form up at Saratoga would suggest that the 3-year-old will fit nicely here. (3) OZONE BLUE CHIP ships in with some minor stakes experience  and certainly needed last week's start. (6) PRETTY BOY SWAG faces better off two dominating wins upon arrival from the Midwest.

Race 7

(2) VINTAGE GRAND raced decently three back then was stuck with outside posts; Lachance trainee moves back inside while facing a pretty soft field. (5) HORSING AROUND figures to be on the move early, perhaps even cutting the mile. (7) JOE'S BID would be the clear choice here if not for the post.

Race 8

(7) JUXTA COWGIRL has been a terror since arriving from the Midwest and the filly should fit nicely here. (1) QUEEN TO ME gave way after battling on the front end last out; a smoother trip can yield better results. (4) ENERGIZER IVY arrives from New England sporting nice form; Bartlett drives.

Race 9

(7) ROCK THIS WAY arrived from Canada, joined the Banca barn and got the job done at a very short price; he faces tougher tonight from an outside post but he should offer decent value. (1) SUTTON SEELSTER has been sharp in three starts since moving to Team Bongiorno. (3) HALLIE'S COMET gets needed post relief.

Race 10

(7) ROLL AWAY JOE drops out of the Open 4YO, where he certainly didn't disgrace himself; Burke trainee can handle these if he doesn't get too roughed up. (4) POINTOMYGRANSON was a game front-end winner last week. (2) SUNKEN TREASURE was very stubborn last out getting defeated by a better rival.

Race 11

(1) SKINNY DIPPER is back with Croghan, who has had the best with her, and she's already turned things around in two starts. (4) HAIL DAMAGE BLUES raced decently upon arrival last week; Bartlett drives. (3) MANIANA has been rather flat of late but she appears capable of better.

Race 12

(4) SANTA FE BEACHBOY was much sharper second start off the bench and he gets a free ride at this level. (1) DREAM OUT LOUD N fits perfectly with these and draws best; big threat. (2) SETTLEMOIR drops and will be close up throughout.
