Yonkers: Monday 7/2 Analysis


MEET STATS: 173 - 507 / $822.20

Best Bet: S F ACEINTHEHOLE (5th)      Spot Play: PHILANTHROPIST (1st)

Race 1

(3) PHILANTHROPIST moves into a new barn, doesn't face any standouts here and appears overdue. (1) RAFFERTY HANOVER won three back at this level, this post. (4) MAKE IT BRIEF just missed in his local return.

Race 2

(7) STEUBEN LONE PINE recently added the hobbles and raced well in defeat last out; Filly had some nice efforts here last season in NYSS action and bears following even from the outside post. (4) BARBARA GOLDSTEIN made some nice coin as a freshman, has good speed. (3) VIXY also has plenty of speed, will get tested for class.

Race 3

(2) ANANDAMIDE has been hard to fault this season and from this spot, she looms the one to beat. (7) FORTUNISTA is the clear threat to the top choice, even from the poor post. (5) MONTANA SKIES has some speed for Smedshammer.

Race 4

(1) FOR A DANCER only needs to navigate the first turn and it should be all gravy from there. (2) MISS FIDGET can follow the top choice around from start to finish. (4) FANCY could rally past the rest.

Race 5

(2) S F ACEINTHEHOLE should really win this race on memory. (1) WESTERN CREDIT shipped in, went uncovered into a rated pace and did not threaten; he should be in line for a better trip tonight. (5) ORPHAN VICTOR has some back class but he's missed some time.

Race 6

(7) BRIDGE THE WAY gets a huge driver change to Brian Sears and she's worth following just off that angle. (4) COWGIRL HALL looks like decent stock from Gates Brunet. (1) PRECIOUS METAL draws best and has Morrill, Jr. driving.

Race 7

(3) AWESOME ABE and (2) BILL ONTHEHILL A both get needed clas relief tonight. Neither particularly likes to win, but Abe should be the better price. (4) DREAM PROOF has plenty of back class and he looked good winning at Plainridge.

Race 8

There's a subtle trainer change on (4) I GOT SKILLZ to Garcia-Herrera; I'm sure the Yonkers faithful will pick up on it. (1) LIVE WIRE went steadily in her local debut. (3) DAWGS BUDDY doesn't win often, but she should be close up from this spot.

Race 9

(2) COSMICPEDIA gets a free ride at this level off last week's easy win; obviously him taking another would appear pretty logical. (6) LOVER BOY finished with some pace after the fact last week; will Brennan be forwardly placed tonight? (1) COLOSSAL should go well from the rail.

Race 10

It can be argued that (5) DOMITIAN HANOVER has a class edge on most of these and we know he's capable of leaving the gate; worth a look. (7) CAMS ORACLE drops out of claimers and he should be more involved. (6) PACIFIC DESPERADO gets Brennan in the bike tonight.

Race 11

(3) SUNSET GENTELMAN finally gets a good post and it's time for the veteran to show something. (5) WHATNBLAZES was facing better when last seen here. (4) TOUCHDOWN FRANCO never got involved last week; Sears sticks.

Race 12

(2) HEARTS N FLOWERS raced erratically last out but managed to get the job done; if she's straightened out she can be even better tonight. (1) CHILDS PLAY has speed, the rail and Brennan. (6) SWASH HANOVER ships from Pocono, where she showed some decent efforts.
