Spot Play: FOUR BOYS (12th)

Race 1

(2) ART FOR ARTS SAKE gets serious post relief in his second start at this basement level and he's capable of showing more. (4) P L FIGHTER faces softer in his debut for new connections. (7) JACKED UP returns locally and he has a long and successful history here.

Race 2

(2) NEPTUNE returns to Yonkers and is reunited with Stalbaum; those two have teamed up for some live efforts in the past. (6) LISTOWEL picks up leading driver Bartlett and he has some back class. (1) LENNON BLUE CHIP goes second-time Lasix and draws best.

Race 3

(5) CHARGER BLUE CHIP hasn't fired with his best this season but he's capable of so much better. (2) KEEMOSABE makes plenty of sense with his controlling speed but he's not the most reliable horse out there. (7) STONEBRIDGE COWBOY has raced well in his two starts for the Weiner barn; Brennan drives tonight and he should be trying to leave for position.

Race 4

(1) SPECIAL PACKAGE has just one win in her career but she may be faster than these; timid call. (4) HEAVEN'S LEGACY returns from Freehold off an easy win with Julie Miller in the bike. (2) DELIGHTFUL PLAN should be close up throughout.

Race 5

(4) LYONS SHADOW was a very comfortable winner upon arrival in just her third career start; mare is capable of repeating. (2) HEAVEN ON EARTH held okay after being passed last week. (1) SOUTHWIND LEA beat lesser here two back for Steve Elliott, who is undefeated here this year.

Race 6

(1) URBANA BAYAMA hit town two back and reeled in a classy rival; last week he had no shot from post eight but came home in :26 4/5; logical contender tonight departing from the rail. (3) FORT KNOX gets needed post relief and he may be controlling the action. (6) GOBAN was very good last week and he merits a look at a price.

Race 7

(6) O'SUNDLAND returned to Yonkers last week for Stalbaum and tired on the lead with little excuse; he's better than that and deserves a chance to rebound. (4) ALLSTAR PARTNER is zero for the last two years but he does fit well here. (1) THAT MAN OF MINE gets needed post relief and can hang around for a share.

Race 8

(4) ANNIESWESTERNCARD seems to have regained some of his old form in his last few starts after a dry spell; veteran deserves the call here based on class alone. (1) COLOSSAL lands all the way inside and does have plenty of early speed to secure a good spot. (6) LUCKY MAN had aim from the pocket last out and may have been going by but he broke; chance to rebound at a decent price.

Race 9

(1) ROCK TO GLORY took care of business in professional fashion last week and he gets a free ride at this level; repeats. (4) SAM'S ESCAPE was in too tough in his last few and he looks like the main threat with the drop in class. (3) SCARLET CHASER kicked in too late last week; consider underneath here.

Race 10

(1) SHORTSTACKED has a win and a second the last two times Brennan drove and he has an obvious post edge on his rivals here. (4) PANONGAHELA had no shot in his last two but raced well; post relief helps. (3) DELCO ROCKNROLL was improved last week and rates highly here.

Race 11

(3) BEST SAID had no chance last out versus some tough rivals; with the class and post relief tonight he'll be much more involved. (5) ALBERTO CONTADOR N also takes a needed drop in class. (1) GALLANT SEELSTER was a pocket-rocket winner versus lesser off the claim and he faces tougher now but does draw best again.

Race 12

(2) FOUR BOYS shipped in last week to the Godinez barn and had loads of late pace; he does face tougher here but is worth a follow-up look. (6) BIG JER is up in class again but he may try firing from the gate. (5) FORTY FIVE RED was hounded on the lead last out and held for a board spot; three back he was a solid winner.
