Yonkers: Saturday 3/15 Analysis


MEET STATS: 69 - 216 / $387.90  BEST BETS: 12 - 17 / $48.90

Best Bet: DREAM OUT LOUD N (11th)



Race 1

(3) SALEVSTER STALLION totally aired it out on the front end last week and staggered late; I'm giving the veteran a chance to bounce back tonight with better rating. (1) GIDDY UP BLACKFLY closed with pace last out and he'll be much more involved from this inside post. (2) THIRTY TWO RED had a touch of finishing pace last week but was driven into a wall of horses; he can be best of the rest from this spot.

Race 2

(5) MAYTIME TERROR raced well off a tough trip last week. He stays at the same level tonight and should be able to score. (3) FRESH N FAST steps up off a solid score and he keeps Sears. (2) NATHAN FEELSGOOD returned locally and was in too tough; he gets class relief tonight.

Race 3

(2) LISTOWEL hasn't been all that great in his last few but he drops back down in class and faces a soft group. (1) WAYNE THE LEFTY just missed last week but he probably should have won. (4) WESTERN DAKOTA has plenty of back class and would have been my choice if a catch driver was in the sulky.

Race 4

(4) MYSTIC DESIRE didn't do much versus claimers in his first seasonal start. Note than Brennan chose him over two other horses, including a Burke-trained rival. (1) GAMBLERS TALE will almost certainly be sitting no worse than the pocket from this spot. (2) BETTOR DESIGN stays at the same level off last week's big upset score.

Race 5

(1) DENVER DOLLY was a solid two-move winner when last at this level; Bartlett should work out a perfect trip from this spot. (4) DIGITAL Z TAM debuts for Garcia-Herrera via claim; interesting. (8) DREAMLANDS ART fits with these but is stuck outside again.

Race 6

(2) SAPPHIRE CITY gets class and post relief; legit Open-caliber horse should get the job done tonight. (3) ARACACHE HANOVER is another with plenty of class but the Burke trainee is a certified money-burner. (1) HERE WE GO AGAIN was a winner at this level two back but he faces tougher stock tonight.

Race 7

(5) MACHAL JACKSON is up in class off a good closing effort and the O'Sullivan trainee faces no standouts here. (2) RELENTLESS G draws inside and looms a threat with Brennan picking up the drive. (3) TRACK MASTER D gets Pierce and maybe the fresh hands wakes him up.

Race 8

(1) SPECIAL FORCES was shuffled a bit from the pocket last out and didn't fire late; Burke trainee can control the action from this spot. (2) EIGHTEEN toured the track from post eight in last; he'll obviously be closer tonight. (3) RUSSLEY RASCAL N went a long trip on the rim last week and didn't tire that badly.

Race 9

(1) FOUR STARZ TRACE has been a good money earner for Llopez and this looks like a perfect spot. (3) ESPEN DE VIE returns locally and was a fast-closing winner at this level four back. (2) ELECTRIC SHOOTER gets some post relief, is capable with these but this barn has had some trouble getting off the ground this year.

Race 10

(4) MONTREAL PHIL toured the track in his couple from tough posts; he moves in a bit tonight and the Lachance trainee should be more involved. (2) YO CHEYENNE ROCKY returned locally last week and barely got the job done; Pierce sticks with him. (7) SKY IS THE LIMIT raced pretty well in defeat last out and he could be a closing threat at a price.

Race 11

(1) DREAM OUT LOUD N drops again, draws best and should have no problems taking care of these. (3) HI HO STEVERINO woke up with a solid two-move effort versus lesser last week; sharp sort bears following. (2) OPEN WATER has been sharp in most of his recent effort and he can save ground here and flash late pace.

Race 12

(7) FLEM N EM N has been sharp in his last few and the Fraley barn has been live recently; this is a tough spot in an evenly-matched field but he could be a juicy price from this post. (3) HANG TEN drops a notch in his second seasonal start. (5) CHINA GRILL drops back to the level of his recent win but that was from an inside post where he controlled the action; Lachance may be off the pace tonight.
