Yonkers: Monday 5/23 Analysis


MEET STATS: 122 - 526 / $765.70

BEST BETS: 13 - 54 / $54.30

Best Bet: FRANNEY LOVE DAT (5th)

Spot Play: SHANE ADAM (10th)

Race 1

(1) M A BAY comes by way of Freehold and catches a weak group; can boss these by default.  (3) GAIUS CRASTINUS makes his 2016 debut with a couple of decent qualifiers; factor. (4) FAST N VICTORIOUS had live cover but could not make a forward bid and settled for fourth money last time out.

Race 2

(3) CHEYENNE MOLLY was sent right to the front but tried in deep stretch to hold on for the place spot last out; seems to be the speed of the speed and she could make amends.  (2) EXCELANT CHANCE Monticello invader gets post relief and that might help her cause.  (5) YULE LOVE IT makes her pari-mutuel debut and put in an excellent qualifier in Florida; watch out.

Race 3

(2) COMBAT gets the best of the draw and this might be a perfect spot for this pacing gelding to get back to the winner's circle but needs to revert to his April 24th trip at Pocono. (4) DR J HANOVER very sharp in the pocket and rolled thru the passing lane for all the glory last out. (5) CONCUR put in a great battle with Dr J Hanover most the way but was nailed for the victory in their latest try.

Race 4

(4) J T was completely out of it last out but gelding now gets post relief; at his best he can get the job done. (1) SOHO HIGHROLLER A is another with a better post to work with; main danger. (4) LEGION OF BOOM was flashing good speed but tired in the stretch drive last time around.

Race 5

(5) FRANNEY LOVE DAT was an easy winner last time out and this mare figures to keep on her winning ways. (1) SHE SAID moves inside and that surely help her chances in here. (2) AMANDEROSA has wheeled off two straight victories at Monticello; don't overlook.

Race 6

(3) SECRET DELIGHT Gelding is knocking at the door based on his last two tries; might rate and score over these. (4) PERFECT BET had live cover and mowed them down for the victory last time out. (2) TEAM CAPTAIN was very game in his last start to land second money; not out of this.

Race 7

(1) BJS GUY was sharp at Saratoga last out missing the victory by 1/2 length; can boss these down the road with Brennan at the helm. (5) TWIN B HOLLISTER needs a better trip to contend with these; possible. (3) SANTANNA ONE might have found a better spot to be a factor in here; watch out.

Race 8

(2) SPENDABUCKONME Gelding now moves to the 2-hole and is seeking his first victory of the year. With a fine-timed drive from Dube he might greet the cameraman for pictures. (8) SELVIN blasted from the 8-hole and tucked in the pocket on his way to victory recently at Philly; main danger. (4) CLASSIC BREEZE closed well on the cones to lose glory by a nose; not out of this.

Race 9

(4) WINDSUN STETSON raced evenly in his last start at the Meadowlands. Gelding does have tactical speed and the good news is he will have the services of Bartlett; threat at his best. (1) REGAL SIGHT hopefully this gelding will get the right trip from the pole position; maybe. (2) ELWELL showed brief speed last time out so there's a chance that he could move forward.

Race 10

(2) SHANE ADAM put in a mild rally for fourth money last time around. With a covered up trip he could get the job done; we shall see. (6) FEELING CAM LUCKY Sharp in the pocket last out and held on for the place spot; dangerous. (3) KONA KID most likely will be on the engine and good to see Bartlett with the call.

Race 11

(3) BLOOD BROTHER led most of the way but did not have enough gas in the tank in deep stretch last time out but hey it was his first start of the year so he could be ready for action tonight. (6) BET YOU was on the rim at the 3/4 pole and was very game for the place spot last out; big threat. (2) SPORTSKEEPER took charge to the front turning for home only to be nailed for win honors by Perfect Bet last week.

Race 12

(3) BETTER SAID is back inside where she belongs and mare is seeking her first score of the year. Has the speed and if she gets a favorable trip the rest will have to settle for place money. (1) SINGLE ME did not have the best of trips last time out but should make some noise in here. (2) BLACK WIDOW BABY Jogged home to an easy victory last week and figures to be the main danger to repeat.
