Yonkers: Monday 4/9 Analysis


MEET STATS: 90 - 273 / $423.90

Best Bet: GREYSTONE CASH (9th)     Spot Play: WHATSITTOYOUGRANT (10th)

Race 1

(1) ARBIELLA qualified very nicely and she could be ready here at first asking. (2) PARTY HANOVER fizzled out in the Petticoat; this may be an easier assignment. (7) PFORTYSEVEN GIRL has some ability for Mark Ford, needs to stay flat.

Race 2

(1) THE WINDSURFER A was simply awful last out at odds-on; the rest of Team Stalbaum has been good recently so maybe this one can turn it around. (1) PHOTO RULES seems logical from this spot. (3) HASTE has back class, maybe it will resurface someday.

Race 3

(1) DRAGON ISLAND drops to the basement claiming level for Pena; former Open pacer should have his way with these. (2) DONNIE BOP should stalk throughout and he can hold off the rest. (5) BETHS BOY seems capable of landing a share.

Race 4

(3) ROCKNROLL PRINCESS was a solid winner in the Petticoat consolation and she arguably faces weaker here for trainer Lindsay Greene (Scott Blackler?) Honestly, this rotating trainer nonsense has got to stop. (5) UP FRONT SHARON has some class and looks imposing, despite the layoff. (1) PARTY DREAM could land a share from the inside post.

Race 5

(4) MONEYBACKGURANTEE has had some success here in the past and Brennan drives tonight. (3) WICKED N RUDE is on a nice form spree. (1) CRY FOR CASH finally gets a break at the post draw and he has a legit shot from this spot.

Race 6

(4) WILLIE BOOTS ships in for Pena and this looks like a pretty good spot. (8) SAKRA FELLA gets needed class relief but he's stuck in the eight post; veteran is probably better than most of these. (2) HIGH OCTANE N is an interesting Down-Under shipper.

Race 7

(2) SALVESTER STALLION fits nicely with these and outdraws his main competition; Dave Miller's here tonight to drive the Coleman stable horses. (4) MILITARY STRATCOM looks for six straight since the Pena claim, but he's missed a couple of weeks. Why? (5) KEVLAR HANOVER is razor sharp; debuts for DiDomenico.

Race 8

(5) MCGREAT lacks the class of others here but he's been solid in two starts for McDermott and he may work out a live trip in this very competitive field. (6) TIVOLI HANOVER unleashed a big off-the-pace rally to win last out; who knew he was capable of that? (2) ROADWAY has a shot from the inside post.

Race 9

(2) GREYSTONE CASH went a tough trip from post eight and understandably tired last out; he's back inside and at the level of his last dominating win. (3) RAINING AGAIN is sharp right now for Jason Robinson. (1) PEMBROKE NICK had no pace in last for Pena; perhaps the tank is refueled for tonight's race.

Race 10

(2) WHATSITTOYOUGRANT has had pace in his last two starts and he should be a big threat from the inside post. (6) SAMS ESCAPE was a strong winner in last; threat here, even from the tough post. (3) DALLENBACH HANOVER dropped and popped in his third back from vacation.

Race 11

(1) SECLUDED ISLAND drops, draws best again and gets a weak vote in the finale. (5) OPEN WATER has hit the board in four-of-six locally this season. (2) NATHAN FEELSGOOD will be close up throughout.
