Yonkers: Saturday 11/14 Analysis


MEET STATS: 359 - 1072 / $1,984.50  BEST BETS: 53 - 86 / $185.50

Best Bet: CROMBIE A (4th)

Spot Play: TEXICAN N (12th)


Race 1

(1) JD'S CALEB MAN was gapping cover and was all out to prevail in his last effort, but the fact remains that he did win that race and is facing similar tonight. Allard trainee usually gets very brave when drawn inside and is allowed to control the action. (2) EIGHTEEN drops in class off a good effort and draws well again. (4) MC DYNAMITE should be a bit closer tonight and will be coming late.

Race 2

(1) SHADY CITY has raced well in all recent and seems to be a perfect fit at this NW18000 level. (3) ZIGGY SKY jogged right off the Banca claim and seems sharp enough and capable of the class hike. (4) CLASSIESISTAR N gets class and post relief and just missed at this level four back.

Race 3

(1) PREPARTY didn't take any money and never got involved upon arrival for Allard. Well-bred 4-year-old now lands all the way inside and should be aggressively handled. (7) IDEAL COWBOY is arguably in career form and he comes off a win against Take It Back Terry, but this is a tough spot with some speedy rivals inside of him. (2) CHEYENNE SEEBER should be close up throughout and he's proven he can compete with this type.

Race 4

(3) CROMBIE A drops in class again and it's not exactly like he's been bad in recent efforts; Allard import looks best here. (1) SECOND WIND N gets needed post relief with obviously makes him a contender. (4) STATESMAN N surprised me by finishing sharply last week after rolling wide and he can build off that effort.

Race 5

(2) VALIDUS DEO doesn't win all that often but he's raced well in his last two versus better and seems very logical with the good post draw. (3) YS LOTUS returns to Yonkers with class and post relief; Dube may be on the engine early. (4) FOOL ME ONCE also gets post relief and seems capable of better.

Race 6

(5) STAY UP LATE went nowhere last week trying to grind into a sharp winner but he was sharp in his two prior starts and the Godinez trainee seems capable with a live trip. (3) FAMEOUS WESTERN drops back to the level of his last win. (1) EMPEROR MONTANA N has to be considered due to landing the best post.

Race 7

(2) GOBAN tried up first up last week into the well-rated leader and weakened without much of a fight but he's shown live moves and versatility in the past; price should be decent, even from this inside post. (4) CYCLONE KIWI N recently added Lasix and has been much, much better. (1) ROGER MACH EM was a upset winner two back versus similar with Gregory in the bike.

Race 8

(7) THE REAL ONE needs a bit of help from this outside spot but he's been sharp for ages and Lachance can mow these down with the right setup. (2) PASS THEM BY N has been super in his last three, including last week when he put a scare into Dynamic Youth. (4) LUCAN HANOVER was worn down by two tough rivals last out; no shame in that.

Race 9

(2) SANTANNA ONE was hung to dry the other day; toss that race out and his prior starts have all been solid. Chance here with the improved post. (6) REUBEN BROGDEN N drops in claiming price off a couple of flat efforts; gelding was Sears' choice. (3) SIX GUN faltered on the front end last out but I have to believe the Garcia-Herrera trainee is still sharp.

Race 10

(6) UNCLE GOODFELLOW exits claimers and finds a tougher spot but he's too sharp to ignore. (4) TWIN B IMPRESSIVE always gives a good accounting of himself. Tonight he's down in class and picks up Sears; here's your likely favorite. (2) IN COMMANDO held for a board spot after an uncovered trip last week.

Race 11

(5) PANIC DISORDER has done nothing wrong since hitting town for the Brandon Todd outfit; gelding always offers value and the price should be right again tonight. (3) LONEWOLF CURRIER looks for two in a row for the tough Allard/Dube combo. (1) KIWI IDEAL N is established at this level and the Cassar trainee draws best.

Race 12

(5) TEXICAN N didn't leave the gate last week and was too far back to threaten. From this spot he HAS to be forwardly placed. (7) SAPPHIRE CITY gets some needed class relief and this gusty veteran can never be counted out. (1) LIFE UP FRONT looks for three straight but he's facing tougher tonight. (2) CLINT WESTWOOD merits a mention based in his good efforts in two of his last three.
