Yonkers: Saturday 11/12 Analysis


MEET STATS: 400 - 1152 / $2,182.10

BEST BETS: 52 - 93 / $172.00

Best Bet: GRIN FOR MONEY (1st)

Spot Play: DALHOUSIE DAVE (5th)


Race 1

(5) GRIN FOR MONEY took care of business at odds-on upon arriving from Canada and joining the Milici barn; he faces a very suspect group here and can easily repeat. (6) MAGIC MANNY could show more in his second start off the vacation. (4) UNION MAN HANOVER has been empty in his two starts off the claim for his new barn but he does face softer tonight.

Race 2

(1) FAMEOUS WESTERN has raced well in all recent efforts and lands another good post; veteran can trip out from this spot. (4) SKY IS THE LIMIT gets Brennan back in the bike and they teamed up to beat lesser two back. (2) MACHTU N is probably best here but has been a bit flat recently.

Race 3

(3) GYPSY LEATHER hasn't had the easiest of trips in his two starts off the Robertson claim but he drops a notch in class and draws better. (1) PAMS LEGACY finished decently last week and could be rounding back to form. (7) JUSTICE MY WAY can go with this type and could be considered underneath at a big price.

Race 4

(2) WHAT I BELIEVE has been on an insane form spree and there's no reason he can't take another. (5) SHADIOS will be firing to the front and trying to take these the distance, but don't expect 19/1 this week. (6) IDEALBEACH HANOVER showed some forward progress last out for the first time in a while.

Race 5

(6) DALHOUSIE DAVE got hung to dry last week and lingered around for a while before tiring, still pacing in 1:53 3/5; Bartlett's back driving tonight and they teamed up for his two local wins. (1) TEXICAN N moves back inside and will be right there throughout. (5) DREAM OUT LOUD N drops another notch in class and clearly is a player.

Race 6

(2) ROCK ABSORBER has been razor-sharp since being claimed by Allard and he will look for four straight versus this competitive bunch. (3) BETTOR REASON N stormed home for the victory last out, his second off the Milici claim. (7) DOJEA SOLO has sharp early speed which will help him overcome the outside post.

Race 7

(1) SCOTT ROCKS returns locally looking for three straight and has controlling speed from the best post. (6) SAPPHIRE CITY hasn't been at his sharpest of late but he still merits consideration with this type. (5) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH was shuffled last out but I'm not sure how much he had left anyway; Bamond trainee has a nice move that needs to be timed right.

Race 8

(6) THE REAL ONE had plenty of pace last week but no chance; Lachance can storm by late with any sort of live setup. (2) FIRST CLASS HORSE qualified effectively and we all know what kind of raw speed he possesses; don't ignore. (1) ROCK N ROLL WORLD gets needed post relief and we'll see if the 4-year-old can go with these.

Race 9

(1) BJ'S GUY gets the best post in a field with some question marks; consider him if the price is right. (6) P H SUPERCAM was outfinished off a two-move effort last out and I suppose he could be considered the one to beat. (8) RAMPAGE JACKSON has gone from a $12,500 claimer to being assigned the eight hole in the Preferred....what a story! He's got blast-off early speed to get good position.

Race 10

(3) FEEL THE NEED A has become a bit of an erratic type since making a big splash upon arrival in the U.S.; he's worth a look here in a field lacking a standout. (7) CLASS SIX has been very sharp in his last three and would be my top pick if not for the poor post. (1) ROLAND N ROCK was a solid pocket-sitting winner versus lesser last week but I'm not too confident with him versus some better foes.
