Yonkers: Saturday 10/15 Analysis


MEET STATS: 352 - 1039 / $1,906.60

BEST BETS: 46 - 86 / $152.80

Best Bet: CRAZSHANA (2nd)

Spot Play: SANTA FE BEACHBOY (3rd)


Race 1

(1) STOLEN CAR has very quietly had a solid season with over $100,000 banked. He's a proven fit at this level and looks enticing at 12/1 morning line. (5) CYCLONE KIWI N returns locally off a very sharp score versus lesser at Philly. (3) SOHO LENNON A finally put it together last week with a solid effort and Stratton sticks with him.

Race 2

(6) CRAZSHANA has missed time between his recent starts but he's back now on a week's rest getting needed class relief; Bamond trainee looks like the one to beat. (2) ZOOMING has been much better in his last two after a few dull efforts. (4) SOMEBODY AS always lands a share but he sometimes lacks the winning habit, especially at Yonkers.

Race 3

(6) SANTA FE BEACHBOY has always been an erratic sort but he's really fast when on his game; Banca trainee looks for two straight. (1) SAPPHIRE CITY gets needed post relief and he'll be on the lead or stalking close up. (2) TEXICAN N finally broke into the win column last week and he's certainly classy enough to repeat.

Race 4

(8) FIRST CLASS HORSE broke leaving last week ending his insane string of races after moving to the Milici barn but he made up a ton of ground to be a solid third. Obviously with no mishaps Bartlett can make it to the front and control these. (4) ROCK N ROLL WORLD seems like he should be better than he's showing; Burke trainee can be a threat from this spot. (7) BLOOD BROTHER has obvious ability but can't come from last; can he float early for a seat?

Race 5

(1) DREAM OUT LOUD N probably should have won last week but it certainly wasn't a bad effort; Cassar trainee can trip out from this spot. (8) FEEL THE NEED A was a decent and unextended third last week in the Open; we've seen flashes of brilliance from this import and he can be considered even from this outside spot; watch the board for clues. (7) TAKE IT BACK TERRY is also stuck with a tough outside post but we know he fits with these.

Race 6 – International Trot

(5) OASIS BI is one of three European horses who raced in last year's International Trot, and he had plenty finishing after escaping traffic. He's had just as stellar of a campaign this year overseas and from this nice midpack post he should be in the clear throughout. Riding live cover can get it done. (1) HANNELORE HANOVER has been super for the Burke stable and lands the inside post. I'm sure the strategy will be for the mare to take these down the road, but it should be a pressured pace throughout. (7) BBS SUGARLIGHT also had a trip over the Yonkers oval last year and didn't race badly. He's another that seems capable with a live flow. (2) RESOLVE is arguably the best trotter here for Svanstedt but from this starting spot it's possible he gets buried early and never escapes, especially with the European style of drivers living on the rim.

Race 7 – Invitational Trot

(10) WIND OF THE NORTH has been much improved in his last three after moving to the Dylan Davis barn, hitting the ticket on all three occasions. Callahan's here to drive and seems worth a play if the price is right. (2) BEE A MAGICIAN returns to the racing wars off two nice qualifiers and should be ready to roll; clearly the one to beat. (8) SHAKE IT CERRY wasn't at her best last out and is stuck in post eight today, but we know the Takter trainee is more than capable.

Race 8

(7) DOT DOT DOT DASH has proven herself in the past versus this type with some solid efforts and the added distance can help her cause in this wide-open affair. (3) BINGO QUEEN has been feeling good lately and minding her manners; consider. (4) SUPER MANNING was used very hard last week and proved very stubborn before giving way; he can be a big price here.

Race 9

(1) SUMATRA gets some needed post relief and should be close up throughout. (9) WORLD CUP has hit the board in his last few efforts at this level with a win sprinkled in; Gingras drives today and he can be considered the one to beat despite starting from the second tier. (7) LUCK O THE IRISH recovered very nicely from a break last out versus lesser; could be a late threat.

Race 10 – Invitational Pace

(8) WIGGLE IT JIGGLEIT certainly isn't a cinch from this outside starting spot but how can you go against or root against him? No doubt Montrell Teague will have him firing early. (4) ALL BETS OFF has had a very nice season chasing the top ones, banking over $500K in the process. Note last week's 1:46 2/5 effort chasing Always B Miki. Burke trainee is way overdue. (1) BIT OF A LEGEND is the Levy champ and has clearly accomplished the most of the locals; impossible to ignore him from this spot. This should be a great race.

Race 11

(2) WINDS OF CHANGE brushed aggressively last out, cut a rated pace and gave way late. Takter trainee seems better from off the pace, which is where he should be today. (1) THE REAL ONE is back up in class after jogging versus lesser and he draws best. (5) FOILED AGAIN is back locally after bouncing back from some adversity for seemingly the 100th time. Note the champ is reunited with Gingras.

Race 12

(4) WINGS OF ROYALTY was a sharp pocket-sitting winner last out and now he gets Sears back in the bike; repeat trip is possible. (8) MAJOR ATHENS qualified effortlessly and he can be a threat despite the outside post. (3) CRAZY ABOUT PAT saved ground and closed well last week in his local return.

Race 13

(3) WESTERN ROCKSTAR A was outbattled late by a speedy rival last week upon dropping to this level and he can make amends today. (1) THESEYESRCRYING has loads of speed and a much better post. (2) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH keeps Bartlett after getting nailed on the wire last out but he hasn't beaten this type in a while.
