Yonkers: Saturday 3/28 Analysis


MEET STATS: 93 - 273 / $466.90  BEST BETS: 12 - 23 / $41.60

Best Bet: DANCIN YANKEE (10th)

Spot Play: MACH IT SO (9th)


Race 1

(4) THAT'LL BE THE REI was clearly aimed too high in the Levy last week; Harmon trainee is back where he belongs and he could be heading to the front. (1) ORILLIA JOE tired with little excuse out of the pocket last week but the drop in class and inside draw makes him a contender. (6) SECOND WIND N was caught uncovered last out and hung around for a while before tiring; veteran also gets class relief.

Race 2

(2) GOBAN gets much-needed post relief in his second start from vacation and he should be on the lead or in the pocket from this spot. (1) STOLEN CAR is always in the hunt from inside posts. (4) BIGRISK has been making live moves of late and he also gets an improved post.

Race 3

(5) SHOW ME UP has been a terror since the DiDomenico claim and I think he's got the back class to handle the double-jump in company. (3) THE LUNCH PAIL has closed well in all recent starts and he gets post relief. (4) HANG TEN was a winner at this level two back from the rail spot; Burke trainee can be a part of this.

Race 4

(3) STATESMAN N came up a touch flat from the pocket last week chasing a game winner; veteran should be better than that and he can rebound from this spot. (1) AMERICAN RAGE hasn't fired with his best in his last few but he has to be considered from this rail spot. (2) ODYSSEUS BLUECHIP should look to get away close up then sit and try to rally late.

Race 5

(4) CASIMIR JITTERBUG went a big effort in defeat last week; veteran pacer has proven in the past that he belongs with these and he can take this with any sort of favorable trip. (3) HALL BRO went evenly in a needed first seasonal start for Burke. (1) RU READY TO ROCK draws best and that makes him an obvious contender.

Race 6

(5) BACKSTREET HANOVER had good finishing trot on both ends of her mile last week and she should be forwardly placed again to sit a trip. (7) DW'S NY YANK hasn't been bad this year but hasn't been great; when right he can roll over this field. (6) DANCEHALL MISTRESS went a big, big effort last week but was held off by the streaking Not Afraid. The problem here is that she may get away last.

Race 7

(5) CLEAR VISION raced okay but was outfinished in his seasonal debut; classy double-millionaire should be tighter tonight. (4) P H SUPERCAM rode the pocket trip to victory to edge by Foiled Again last week; he'll likely have to work harder to get a similar trip. (8) LUCAN HANOVER finished well last out but he may be done in by the poor post.

Race 8

(2) FOILED AGAIN was aggressively handled to the front from the outside post last week, his seasonal debut. Note that after getting passed deep stretch he was actually fighting back to the wire. Tough not to pick him on top, even with the presence of (1) POLAK A inside of him. The latter hit U.S. soil and was a solid winner last week, but he was left alone most of the mile. Clearly the import has major talent. (5) MICHAELS POWER dug in gamely after getting stung early and pulled off the upset. Tough to say if he (or Warrawee Needy) can make the front tonight.

Race 9

(5) MACH IT SO got buried last week and charged home too late once clear. Clearly the Bamond trainee has come back sharp and he only needs a smooth trip to sail by. (2) SAPPHIRE CITY bounced back with a better effort last out. (4) BEACH MEMORIES was very aggressively handled to beat a weaker Levy division in round one.

Race 10

(1) DANCIN YANKEE was conservatively handled in the early stages last week but he finished up well in his seasonal debut. He'll be winging tonight from the rail. (4) BETTOR'S EDGE was clearly short late in the mile off the shelf. Expect better. (2) WINDSONG JACK put in a big effort at a big price last week.

Race 11

(1) TWEET ME went a huge trip in defeat last out in an added-distance event; clearly she must be given another chance tonight. (4) IL MAGO stopped two back when last seen here but he can be excused for that effort as he was used up early. His last two efforts at The Meadowlands were good. (5) LORENZO DREAM and (6) TAKE MY PICTURE are both speed threats here; one or both may be leaving the gate.

Race 12

(3) FITZ'S Z TAM took plenty of money despite being way up in class off the Allard claim but he never fired from a tough spot. I'll give him one more chance to prove he can compete with these. (5) MR HASANI N finished with plenty last out after a ground-saving trip; he'll have to be used harder at some point tonight. (1) I FOUND MY BEACH wasn't awful last week when hiked to this level and he does draw best.
