Yonkers: Monday 1/12 Analysis


FINAL 2014 MEET STATS: 372 - 1082 / $1961.90  BEST BETS: 57 - 88 / $185.20

Best Bet: JD’S CALEB MAN (3rd)


Race 1

(1) AZOREANSAILOR was very big in defeat when last seen locally and he was in a bit too tough at The Meadowlands; Kakaley can trip out from this spot. (4) SIR CORBRAN Z TAM has been racing gamely at Monti for Godinez. (3) LITERATE HANOVER is a big speed threat from this spot.

Race 2

(8) JACOB WAYNE ships up from Dover, picks up Bartlett and seems to have the early speed to overcome the eight hole. (7) VEGLIANTINO has hinted at a touch of ability; Brennan drives. (2) ROCKINTHEPINES stormed home to upset at Freehold and the Del Cid trainee may be the one to beat.

Race 3

(2) JD'S CALEB MAN ships down from Woodbine and he simply looks faster than these. (4) TRIPLE MAJOR picks up Brennan looking to end a long losing streak. (7) MORTAL COMBAT fits here but he may have too much to do from this outside post.

Race 4

(2) CLASSIC CARPET has been a winning machine for Burke and she should adapt nicely to the small track. (1) A LA NOTTE HANOVER raced well here last summer in stakes action and she closed a ton last out at The Meadowlands. (5) BETTOR BUSINESS is clearly best of the rest.

Race 5

(2) EXPLOSIVE VICTORY raced last season in Pennsylvania with moderatre success; she's got as good a chance as any in this wide-open event. (1) JUSTIN ON BROADWAY had a recent trip over the track at The Meadowlands and he can be tighter here. (6) MARKUP HANOVER could try leaving the gate with Bartlett.

Race 6

(4) WORLD OF ROCK finished up willingly last out at The Meadowlands and based on that tightener she should be tough here. (5) ARABELLA J makes just her second lifetime start for Vallee and she can show more. (3) WEDDING SET gets a driver upgrade to MacDonald tonight.

Race 7

(3) ALESSANA HANOVER had her win streak snapped last week at The Big M but the well-bred mare should probably be able to take control here. (1) COCHITA HANOVER was second best as the favorite when last seen locally. (4) REGIL MEG is another Woodbine shipper who should fit well here.

Race 8

(3) GALLANT SEELSTER lands a decent post in a field full of question marks and his effort two back was good. (2) COLONIAL ROAD has been flat recently but he's inside again. (7) ONE MORE LAUGH has loads of back class but not much of a motor left.

Race 9

(2) ADDWATER and (3) LIGHTNING STRIKE can both step over the rail horse and either should be in good striking position turning for home. (6) KEEMOSABE has talent but he can be erratic.

Race 10

(6) CRAVEN THE BEACH has big-time speed and he faces a suspect field; maybe. (4) MYSTICAL WALTER is the one to beat but he didn't look all that good in his last race. (1) HOT RODDY has the rail, should ride a good trip.

Race 11

(2) DELLA CRUISE has plenty of ability and has gone some fast miles in the past at Philly; not impossible from this spot. (1) CAVIART KEY has speed, class and the rail; logical contender. (6) GARNET RIVER A is better than his last few would indicate.
