Yonkers: Monday 3/5 Analysis


MEET STATS:  50 - 155 / $250.70

Best Bet: FROGGY TURNER (9th)     Spot Play: MEANT TO BE ME (10th) 

Race 1

(5) DONNIE BOP returns locally and has had plenty of success here for Team Stalbaum in the past. (1) WILDMOTION plunges in class in his return from vacation and he qualified effectively. (8) WON NITE IN VEGAS keeps Brennan and could rally for a share.

Race 2

(2) LORD BURGHLEY ran into a killer last out; veteran looks like he could control the action tonight. (5) JEREMIAH TROTTER moves into another new barn tonight, and he remains in good form. (4) LARISSA is back with a catch-driver and she gets post relief.

Race 3

(5) ANGELOS DREAM looked like a new horse in her latest effort and she can come right back for another. (4) PFORTYSEVEN GIRL ships from The Meadowlands for Mark Ford off a good effort, but beware, she shows multiple breaks over the half-mile surface. (7) DRAGONS JOJO returns to the races for Pena after a decent two-year-old campaign.

Race 4

(6) UP FRONT JERRY was in a bit too tough last out and weakened; he's back at the level where he fits best. (1) HONEYS DRAGON draws best and he appears capable of holding his own from this spot. (8) LONESOME CRUISER has been razor-sharp in his last two but he faces tougher here and is stuck in the eight hole again.

Race 5

(8) SOUTHWIND TRINI has looked good in all three of her local starts and she has the gate speed to overcome the outside spot. (1) VY HANOVER was stubborn on the front end in her local debut. (7) CRAZYBOUTDADRUMMER fits nicely with these, but the apparent lack of early speed may make things difficult.

Race 6

(1) GRAB A CRAB hikes in class tonight but he looks sharp enough to compete with these. (7) AVENUE HANOVER got shuffled last out; give him another look. (2) HOME AGAIN DRAGON rallied well from post seven last out; now he departs from the two hole and Sears is back.

Race 7

(5) MICKEY HANOVER raced well in stakes action at The Meadowlands and the Allard charge looks well spotted here. (1) NATHAN FEELSGOOD was towed right to the winners circle last out; he's in line for another good trip tonight. (6) LOADEDUPNTRUCKIN was game in defeat in last and Brennan sticks.

Race 8

(4) CAMS ORACLE displayed wicked speed and didn't tire all that badly last week; he debuts for a new barn tonight that's had success with these speedy types. (1) LETS ROLL JOE rallied well for place honors last out; veteran can be erratic at times but he certainly is capable. (2) LAKE SHARK is back in with claimers and he draws well.

Race 9

(1) FROGGY TURNER has been hard to fault in all recent outings and he looms the one to beat from this spot. (4) ALLAMERICAN INCA is another who's very sharp but he's also the camera-shy type. (5) TIVOLI HANOVER got away with murder on the front end in his last two; it really shouldn't be as easy tonight.

Race 10

(5) MEANT TO BE ME looks like an interesting claim here that can pay immediate dividends. (7) RAINING AGAIN looks for six in a row but he hikes in class here and lands outside. (3) MCAPULCO showed a touch of life last week; hard to ignore any Burke horse.

Race 11

(1) ORR HANOVER gets much-needed class relief and he would appear to have no excuse to fail. (4) OPEN WATER raced gamely on the rim last out. (3) RUNAWAY FIRE A has tailed off since joining the Croghan barn; let's see if he can show some improvement tonight.
