Yonkers: Monday 6/27 Analysis


MEET STATS: 208 - 605 / $1125.50  BEST BETS: 28 - 51 / $100.40

Best Bet: JJ FLYNN (5th)

Spot Play: BJ’S BEQUIA (5th)


Race 1

(3) KILLALY showed some promise as a 2-year-old in limited action and she makes her local debut now in the Banca barn; seems worthy of a long look in the opener. (1) CHEYENNE MOLLY gets needed post relief and is a big threat from this spot. (6) KEYSTONE PAULA shows two decent qualifiers for Erv Miller.

Race 2

(5) LIGHTNING RIDE jogged from the pocket last out and can repeat at a healthier price. (1) MARLA MCGIVERS faces a bit softer tonight and draws best with Sears driving. (7) TRACEY'S DESIRE has looked good since adding Lasix but is stuck in a tough outside spot tonight.

Race 3

(1) CARIBOU BEACH was overmatched in PA stakes action but should find this field much more to her liking. (3) SHIFT RIGHT was a well-meant winner in his debut for the Mike Russo barn. (8) DR J HANOVER qualified sharply at Gaitway for the Alagna barn with Zeron driving.

Race 4

I'm picking a horse who's winless in 54 lifetime starts but (2) STELLA'S PHELLA is always close and draws well in an absolutely dreadful field. Now or never. (8) GOLDEN GESTURE looks best here but is stuck in the eight hole. (3) AUSTIN ROCKS gets much-needed post relief.

Race 5

(2) JJ FLYNN has been facing much better and was actually a PA Classic finalist a couple of months ago; he should be able to handle these. (1) FASHION DRAGON returns locally with the best post and will be in line for a live trip. (3) WELL WELL WELL hails from good connections and is looking to snap his seasonal skid.

Race 6

(5) BJ'S BEQUIA got stuck in and finished too late last week; Allard-trained veteran has loads of back class to call upon. (7) MASTERSON never fired in a quick mile last week but the Milici trainee is capable of rebounding. (2) CHEYENNE SEEBER took a month off and freshened nicely in the morning.

Race 7

(1) TWIN B SWEETHEART makes his second start since arriving from Canada and he's likely to get a smoother trip this week; top billing. (2) NEW JOEZ upset many of these last week but was dq'ed for leaving the course; obviously he can be competitive tonight. (4) CHEYENNE TRIENGEL was racing well last month and seems capable of better.

Race 8

(5) MOTU MOONBEAM N powered off in his U.S. debut and appears to have more to offer. (3) SHOW TIME HILL raced well in NJSS action over at The Meadowlands for the Alagna barn. (1) UPSIDE SURPRISE faces tougher off a win but does draw best.

Race 9

(1) MC RUSTY is still looking to regain his top form but he draws best and note this barn had a couple of winners the other night. (3) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT has raced decently in his last few versus similar. (2) WESTERN BAYAMA draws well for Burke/Brennan and must be considered.

Race 10

(4) KINGS BARNS gets needed class and post relief and figures to awaken big-time for Allard. (1) BULLVILLE KYLE is in good shape now and has proven capable with this type in the past. (2) TYLER has shown improvement since moving to the Banca barn.

Race 11

(5) SINGLE ME really hasn't put in a bad effort since arriving locally and I'll give her the call despite drawing outside her main competition. (4) HEAVENLY HILL couldn't hack the two-move trip last week; all other efforts have been solid. (1) JACLYN HANOVER rallied well from far back last week and now moves all the way inside.

Race 12

(6) DEETZY got a touch leg-weary deep stretch and had to settle for second but it was a solid eight-hole speed try and he can build off that effort. (3) PERFECT BET has hit the ticket in his last three local tries. (7) ELWELL is coming off a lifetime best last week but may have too far to come tonight.
