Yonkers: Monday 7/28 Analysis


MEET STATS: 218 - 636 / $1137.70  BEST BETS: 37 - 52 / $120.40

Best Bet: MIDNITE CRAZE (5th)



Race 1

(7) CF STING REI has shown some signs of life in his last few and he looks like he's got as good a shot as any in this dreadful field. (4) TIME STOOD STILL may show more with the change in venue. (1) EIGHT TEN EOM gapped and never responded last out but at least he does draw well again.

Race 2

(8) GO JESSE GO drops back down in class for a hot barn and he's got the early speed to overcome the poor post. (1) NOWERLAND FIREBIRD was a solid winner versus similar in last and he would appear pretty logical here. (6) NICE DREAM was a good second two back at this basement claiming level.

Race 3

(6) CUTTY SHARK returns to Brennan after being hung to dry last out. (2) FEELIN CORNERED picks up Sears and draws better. (3) WHO DAT LOVE hasn't won in two years but he's been facing better out of town.

Race 4

(6) KEYSTONE RIDEAU returns locally and the veteran has faced better than these in the past. He's my top pick in a race where I don't really have any strong opinion. (4) HARNESSNITENCANADA has the talent but he's awfully erratic. (1) STONEBRIDGE BONUS draws best and should be able to land a share.

Race 5

(2) MIDNITE CRAZE has been tearing it up out of town and he deserves a shot racing for better money. (4) TEACH ME TO BUCKY took the money and delivered upon arrival for Heidi Rohr; main threat. (3) CREDIT TO ELGIN broke in her last two local races.

Race 6

(1) MAJOR DANCER took the Town Pro at Mohawk and a NYSS test at Saratoga in stellar fashion; Casie Coleman trainee looms a short price from this spot. (4) BLUSH HANOVER has been very consistent for Toscano. (5) ALI BLUE is getting a late start to her three-year-old season and she will likely need a race.

Race 7

(3) IT WAS FASCINATION has shown major improvement in her last handful of races and the Alagna-trained filly has a big shot here. (2) SPREESTER has been no worse than second in her last handful of starts; Morrill, Jr. drives again. (8) KEN DOLL J faces an uphill climb from this spot but she's shown ability when she stays flat.

Race 8

(1) CARLOTA BLUE CHIP draws best in what looks like the weakest of the three NYSS divisions and Brennan should be sitting a perfect trip with her. (6) MEDUSA should be forwardly placed for her best chance. (2) SKY ARTIST had no chance last week from the outside post; she will be closer to the action tonight.

Race 9

(1) MACHTOTHEMOON has hit the board in his last three at this level and he appears ready to advance. (2) TYLER is back in a better spot after being overmatched in his last two. (4) ROLANDALE BUSTER was an easy winner versus these last out and it would be no surprise if he repeated.

Race 10

(6) ROCKNROLL MEG bottomed badly from the pocket last out but her prior effort was good; give her another chance. (5) PITA ships in for Simpson and she may fit well here. (7) ROCKLINDAROCK was tons the best in last but it may be tough to accept a short price tonight from this spot.

Race 11

(3) FOREVER JUST finished steadily though was outfinished last week versus better; Auciello trainee appears overdue. (5) FLIPPER J moves in a couple of slots and should be more involved. (7) UNCLE SMOOTHIE  ended up extra crispy after that speed duel last out; he's likely coming from off the pace tonight.

Race 12

(6) SEAFOOD ANNIE just missed last out and has been fairly consistent with this type; maybe. (2) FREETIME can't win up in Maine going for $3,500 so it's tough to endorse her on top racing for a $21K purse tonight but she does appear pretty logical from this spot. (4) LOOKOUT STOKK ZONE has been a steady earner for Floyd Pratt.
