Yonkers: Monday 7/16 Analysis


MEET STATS: 184 - 555 / $871.20

Best Bet: JK FINE ART (4th)      Spot Play: CURRENT CLOSER (7th)

Race 1

(7) CENTRALIA HANOVER made the lead from the outside post, yielded and had plenty left late when last seen here; why not again? (5) BROWNSVILLE BOMBER has a post edge again on the top choice; contender. (1) ZELLWEGER BLUE CHIP looks to be a notch below the top two.

Race 2

(1) TRAVELIN PREACHER has missed some time, but he's more than capable versus these. (5) LUKIN AT ME KID drops in class and can show more. (4) GET PACKIN has speed, Brennan driving.

Race 3

(4) HANDSOFFMYCOOKIE needed a bit of encouragement last out but scored safely; is this wonder filly vulnerable? (6) RYDER BLUE CHIP flashed speed last week versus overnight types; maybe she can try to leave tonight. (1) NEW YORK KITTY was not all that inspiring last out.

Race 4

(6) JK FINE ART was second best to a killer in last; she looks like she should roll over these. (4) ARM IN ARM looks as good as any for second (1) MARINADE HANOVER draws best again, has Tetrick driving.

Race 5

(7) RAM ROCKER ships in for Casie Coleman and lures Brennan; I don't need much more convincing than that. (3) AFRICAN QUEEN tired late after a busy effort last week; she seems like she is on the cusp of a victory. (2) THINKYOUCANDANCE moves up in class, loses Brennan.

Race 6

(2) ROMANTIC MOMENT was second best to American Jewel in the Fan Hanover, then came here and jogged; she almost seems worthy of her likely $2.30 win price. (3) EIGHTHUNRDOLARBILL was second best to Handsoffmycookie last out, should be second best here and complete the $3.40 exacta. (6) LADYS ART raced well last week but she obviously is in a tough spot tonight; third best maybe?

Race 7

(3) CURRENT CLOSER was in traffic last out; Doherty charge drops and can grind his way to victory. (5) NEW HAMPSHIRE BOY also drops and picks up Tetrick on the catch-drive. (1) JUSTANOTHERSPUR returns off a win and draws best.

Race 8

(3) SWASH HANOVER should be close up throughout and faces no world-beaters here. (2) HEPBURN BLUE CHIP drops out of NY stakes action but she failed to beat this type two back. (4) SIR SYNC Z TAM looked good beating a weak field last week.

Race 9

(3) OOH DEAR SAM finished with late pace after escaping some traffic upon arrival; Delaware shipper can build off that effort. (1) SECLUDED ISLAND jogged at Saratoga and he's beaten better than these in the past. (4) JAZZ BAND will bottom out the right field one of these days; I don't think it's tonight, however.

Race 10

(2) COURSER HANOVER debuts for the newest training sensation, Cad Gregory, who has five wins in seven starts as of this writing; toss out last week's break and the gelding has been solid. (6) GODDESSS JUSTIN was reclaimed by Casie Coleman; she must like this veteran. (1) REAL MYSTICAL has been sharp for ages.

Race 11

(4) DAN CHAZ has been good recently for the very live Buter outfit; the post relief can get him over the top tonight. (5) LIL SHARK SHOOTER debuts for Cad Gregory (see race 10) and has plenty of speed. (8) SPARKY is an obvious fit here, needs to overcome the eight hole.

Race 12

(1) CORAL SNAKE looked like super-horse, then broke on the lead last out; we'll see if the three-year-old can rebound. (5) KID CORAGEOUS A had a useful outing last week, should be tighter tonight. (2) DIGITAL Z TAM drops in class and draws well.
