Yonkers: Saturday 10/8 Analysis


MEET STATS: 347 - 1015 / $1,883.80

BEST BETS: 46 - 84 / $152.80

Best Bet: P H SUPERCAM (11th)

Spot Play: SOHO LENNON A (2nd)


Race 1

(4) EXIT CAM just missed last week after stalking from the pocket and he's one of the few proven entities at this level. (5) MIRAMONTMAN was an upset winner three back versus similar and he gets Dube back in the bike off a no-chance effort; big threat. (1) CHUCARO ACERO BC double-jumps in class off an easy score.

Race 2

(4) SOHO LENNON A gets much-needed post relief tonight and note two back he was second best to a tough runaway winner; this just looks like a good spot for the import. (7) BETTOREVER drops in class and should be aggressively handled by Bartlett. (2) SAMMY THE BULL N should be in line for a ground-saving trip up close and can hit the ticket.

Race 3

(1) MACHTU N was a winner at this level and from this post two back; Surick trainee seems quite logical. (4) E Z NOAH never fired last out in a quick mile; his prior two efforts were solid. (5) THEARTOFCONFUSION A was a winner last week out of town; I suppose he could be an off-the-pace threat here.

Race 4

(7) SOMEWHERE FANCY needs some help from this spot but he's kicked home strongly late in his last two and could reach if the pace is hot. (4) SNAP TO IT A was used early then overtaken by a strong In The Arsenal; would be no surprise if he won. (3) IN COMMANDO is making his second start in the Banca barn and gets post relief; watch the board.

Race 5

(6) BIT OF A LEGEND N never got involved last week from the eight hole but he gets slight post relief and we know he's more than capable if he's close enough. (5) MACH IT SO closed well coming out of the same race as the top choice but also had too much ground to cover. (1) FEEL THE NEED A has really tailed off after making a big splash when first arriving in the U.S.; if he's right he can take these a long way.

Race 6

(1) LUMINOSITY gets the best of the draw here and hasn't been all that bad in recent efforts; Burke trainee is clearly the most logical here. (2) CASH ME OUT steps up to face Open types off a solid pocket-sitting score last week. (8) ALLERAGE STAR has been razor-sharp in her last two but she missed a week and is assigned the outside slot.

Race 7

Let's see how good (7) FIRST CLASS HORSE really is, stepping up to face some tough foes. Kudos to the Yonkers race office for assigning him the outside post despite moving up in class. (5) ARTISTIC MAJOR never got involved last week but he's been a solid player all season with these. (6) AMERICANPRIMETIME finally put it all together last week with a record-tying score; clearly he's capable of repeating.

Race 8

(4) DREAM OUT LOUD N has more than held his own versus much better recently; hard to look past him dropping to this level. (2) FIERY LUSTRE N is reunited with Bartlett and draws well. (6) RONNY BUGATTI has had no real chance in his last three but his form in prior starts was good and he can hit the ticket with a smooth ground-saving trip.

Race 9

(1) TEXAS TERROR N had good pace from the three hole last week in a needed start; he draws best in this very competitive race and deserves a long look. (2) IN THE ARSENAL responded to aggressive handling from Goodell and beat up lesser for his first 2016 score; he could be ready for more. (7) SANTA FE BEACHBOY has a ton of talent but is erratic; Bartlett's choice of three in here.

Race 10

(5) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH faces a softer field tonight, gets Bartlett back in the bike and I would expect an aggressive effort. (4) CLASS SIX has had some gaps between his races recently but the Burke trainee lands in a better spot and could step up with a good effort. (3) J T was buried last out but finished with good pace.

Race 11

(2) P H SUPERCAM gets the needed class and post relief to make him an easy winner at a short price. (4) MCARDLES LIGHTNING has raced well in his last handful of local starts. (6) ROCK N ROLL WORLD broke leaving last week; give him another look.

Race 12

(3) FOOL ME ONCE loses Stratton tonight to the Tritton trainee but he always races well from inside posts and he can be close enough to grind these down. (2) TEXICAN N lands in a much more realistic spot tonight and is a legit Open commodity when he's on his game. (5) STOLEN CAR has hit the board in his last five tries at this level and always offers good value.
