Yonkers: Saturday 4/14 Analysis


MEET STATS: 90 - 273 / $423.90

Best Bet:  BLATANTLY GOOD (7th)    Spot Play: WHACKAMOLE HANOVER (10th)

Race 1

(3) TIVOLI HANOVER was used up early last out; he's back with Fraley tonight and he could sit a trip behind likely favorite (5) FROGGY TURNER. The latter jogged first-time Pena and is capable of repeating. (1) ALFREDSSON looked good racing against lesser when last seen here.

Race 2

(2) DEEP FINESSE hasn't done much since shipping up north; Sears drives tonight and he should be close to the action. (4) JETTIN JUSTIN had no response last week; he's better than that. (6) LEAN ON YOU drops, has closing kick.

Race 3

(1) MASTER OF DESIRE shows two wins in this company this year; deserving favorite from the rail. (3) MERCURIO N gets needed class and post relief. (7) ON THE BRINK was second best in a fast time last week.

Race 4

(4) STRAND HANOVER tired after a tough trip last week and now he lures Luc Ouelette back from Canada; interesting. (5) RAZZLE DAZZLE was Sears' choice here and he raced well last out. (6) ONE MORE LAUGH gets Gregory in the bike tonight, and last week's effort was better.

Race 5

(3) PEDRO ISLAND found his stride on the big track; maybe that can translate back to the Yonkers oval. (4) JERRYS BROWN GOLD drops back down a notch and would surprise nobody here. (5) SAND BENELLI has been picking up nice checks versus tough claimers recently.

Race 6

(3) RIVER SHARK was game on the rim last week, but he probably should have won; one more chance here. (4) NOB HILL HIGH continues to impress. (7) FITZ'S Z TAM finished strongly once getting clear up the rail last out; it's gonna be tough from the far outside post.

Race 7

(1) BLATANTLY GOOD gets away from Foiled Again and Real Nice tonight; his turn to play bully. (6) CODE WORD flashed speed to clear the lead last week; maybe he can do it again. (5) DANCIN YANKEE seems capable with a trip.

Race 8

(4) REAL NICE will likely be 1/9 again, will likely head to the front and will likely jog. (1) ROCK TO GLORY and (2) JK CAMELOT seem like the logical candidates to stalk the favorite and either can complete the exacta.

Race 9

(4) FOILED AGAIN may have to work a bit harder tonight, but the results should be the same for the champion gelding. (2) ART Z has been surprisingly solid in the Levy and he could complete a cold chalk exacta. (1) FOREIGN OFFICER gets needed post relief and he seems capable of holding for a share.

Race 10

(2) WHACKAMOLE HANOVER moves back inside off a decent eight-hole effort and Gingras picks up the drive; he appears to have a tactical advantage on his rivals from this spot. (5) POKER HAT has been rejuvenated since joining the Pena barn. (8) LUCKY MAN has the speed to overcome the eight hole.

Race 11

(1) FOX VALLEY TRIBAL is ambitiously placed here but his last effort was super and Stalbaum could work out a winning trip. (6) NY ICE has the needed speed here for Pena/Brennan. (3) WHATSITTOYOUGRANT is a steady earner at this level.

Race 12

(3) SAINT WILLIAM A was a pocket-rocket winner last week versus one notch lesser; he's got the class to dominate here. (6) CIGAR HALL has been rock-solid since arriving. (4) ART FOR ARTS SAKE picks up Brennan for his local return.
