Yonkers: Monday 2/18 Analysis


MEET STATS: 36 - 96 / $194.90    BEST BETS: 5 - 8 / $15.40

Best Bet: GOING NATIVE (1st)    

Spot Play: GLASS PRINCE (11th) 

Race 1

(1) GOING NATIVE stays at the same level off that solid victory and he looks like the deserving favorite here. (4) JOEY HACKETT was uncovered and going nowhere into a rated pace last out; he's capable of better. (5) SOMETHINSGOTAGIVE may show some speed from this spot.

Race 2

(1) IM THE CASH MAN went an even trip last week. From this spot he should take control. (7) SENOR GLIDE and (8) SPECIAL EDDIE can both be used to spice up the exotics if either one can overcome the outside post.

Race 3

(8) GODDESS'S JUSTIN was stuck outside at The Meadowlands and managed a small share. He's had success here at this level in the past. (1) DOUBLE IT UP gets another crack at the pole position. Let's see if he can be more aggressive early. (3) TINYS MILLION looks for three in a row; logical.

Race 4

(4) SHES LOVIN IT brushed and prevailed last week; why not again? (1) AIN'T GOT A HOME was much improved to be second best to the top choice; she can show further improvement. (3) SPECIAL NEWS arrives from Woodbine and merits a look.

Race 5

(8) K SLATER had some willing late pace while facing some tough ones in his seasonal debut at The Meadowlands. From the eight hole, the price should be good enough to take a shot with him. (4) TOUCH AND GO drops in class and will be more involved. (1) EAGLE LUCK ships back from Canada and note he's a millionaire.

Race 6

(4) REL POSTAGE DUE will be fast off the gate and will likely try to take these the distance. (2) CITY KID is a steady commodity at this level. (3) CC MISTER C had little to offer last out. From this spot he can save ground and rally late.

Race 7

(4) WYNSUM MAGIC has taken two straight in solid fashion. He faces tougher tonight but he might be sharp enough to handle these. (1) JETTIN JUSTIN figures to work out a nice stalking trip from this spot. (2) VERY UPSET RICHIE can go with these, just needs a good trip.

Race 8

(1) GLASS PACK is razor-sharp again; the bump up the claiming ladder shouldn't slow him down. (6) AWESOME ARMBRO N looked like a winner every step of the mile last week after leaving hard; veteran knows how to get it done. (8) TY'S A BIG STAR had pace last week from an impossible spot; this may be another impossible spot tonight.

Race 9

(2) RUCKER PLACE returned from Chicago and was a solid second to the lock-city Newbeginning; veteran has plenty of experience over this track. (6) DIABLO SEELSTER has been sharp and he picks up Brennan tonight. (1) ULTIMATE DESIRE toured the track last week; prior effort was a well-meant victory; he can make some noise from the rail.

Race 10

(2) SPY N draws well in this tough-to-figure event; maybe. (1) ALLAMERICAN PEWTER has hit the board in his last two and he gets another crack from an inside spot. (6) GO WEST LUCKY CAM debuts for Casie Coleman via claim...must respect that.

Race 11

(1) GLASS PRINCE will undoubtedly be ready to go for Garcia-Herrera; don't let the layoff concern you. (4) BJ'S GUY was reclaimed by Coleman at a premium; he's heading right to the front. (3) C'MON BUZZ OFF gets some needed post relief.

Race 12

(1) MCBOOGIE had no chance last out; his two prior local effort he rallied sharply. Tonight from the rail he may be close enough to strike. (7) E STREET PLAN clearly finds an easier spot tonight and he must be included. (2) SO TAKE THAT was an upset winner last week; capable of repeating.
