Race 1

(3) HIGHLAND ROCKSTAR drops back down to the non-winners of 2 races level this week and really has no excuses. (8) AVE ULRICA arrives for top trainer Julie Miller and gets Brian Sears in the bike. (5) WITHMEWITHOUTME hasn't won in 13 career starts, but has been picking up checks with consistency.

Race 2

(4) MISTER ANSON made a good living picking up checks versus much tougher on the NYSS circuit. We'll find out how good he is tonight. (2) MASSIVE TALENT finds an easy spot in his return to Yonkers. (5) TEACH ME TO BUCKY has put in a good effort in ever start over the previous month.

Race 3

(3) CITY HALL comes in from Pocono where he was tackling better foes. Allard/Sears charge should prove tough. (1) DULL ROAR is another Pocono shipper, but he wasn't in quite as deep in Pennsylvania; threat. (7) ROCKSTAR TEMPER drops down and has early Brennan and early speed; price play.

Race 4

(5) BREATHTAKING has proven herself at this level in the past and seems to be one of many with a shot of winning tonight. (1) FASTER FASTER put up a victory when she last drew the rail in this class. (7) SUPPLEMENTAL INCOME gets away from stakes company and only has to overcome the poor draw. (4) SCANDALICIOUS is another getting away from Sire Stakes foes.

Race 5

(3) PRIMETIME JERRY didn't fire upon arrival but does drop to the basement claiming level this week. (4) IMA QUE T has made a break in every start since the claim. If she behaves, she'll win. (1) PACIFIC MARGAUX should get away close and get a decent piece.

Race 6

(2) FLYING INSTRUCTOR exits the claiming ranks as he moves into a live barn. (5) R CAAN was stuck in some fast miles at Pocono. (4) A PLACE IN HISTORY broke and still won last time; using.

Race 7

(5) MY TEMUDJIN N continues to step down the condition ladder and may have finally found the proper level. (1) JACKED UP returns to Yonkers at a reduced level and is hard to toss. (2) MISSISSIPPI HIPPY is not going to be used on my win tickets, but is a clear exotics player.

Race 8

(6) OUR DRAGON KING comes in from Balmoral with proven ability to go fast. Whether he can handle the half-mile track seems to be the only question. (1) VALENTINO is clearly the horse to beat for trainer Rene Allard. (4) GALLANT SEELSTER is sharp enough to menace with the right trip.

Race 9

(1) JOHNNY Z draws best and figures to use that position to his advantage. (6) PAMS LEGACY leaves every week and will likely try those tactics again. (2) P H POWERPLAY & (3) LITTLE PRINCE are both legitimate exotics players.

Race 10

(2) THORN IN YOUR SIDE had no shot from post eight last time. Auciello barn was showing signs of life on Thursday night and that can easily carry over. (4) MCERLEAN is at a winning level but lacks early speed. (1) THE BRUISER should push away from the inside and hit the ticket.

Race 11

(4) DAVID'S DREAM ships in while in fine form and should be tough. (7) NOB HILL HIGH knows how to win when he drops down in class, but might be hindered by the outside post. (1) MC RUSTY draws better this week and should improve accordingly.

Race 12

(1) ONE THROUGH TEN finally gets a good starting post and should take full advantage. (5) THAT MAN OF MINE comes off a decent effort and looks like the main threat. (3) GAMBLER'S TALE has been racing well of late.
