Yonkers: Saturday 4/26 Analysis


MEET STATS: 127 - 372 / $674.60   BEST BETS: 21 - 30 / $72.90

Best Bet: EASY AGAIN (10th)

Spot Play: COWBOY TERRIOR (3rd)

Race 1

(4) WHOGOESFIRST never got involved last week from post eight; tonight the veteran is in a much better spot. (3) DELCO ROCKNROLL is back at his preferred venue and the Fraley trainee should be involved here. (1) TRACK MASTER D drops, gets serious post relief but he's been off almost a month.

Race 2

(4) CONNERY BLUE CHIP hasn't made a serious impact since the Garcia-Herrera claim but he does fit with this type and could take this with a favorable trip. (1) SPINARAMA returns locally, draws best and gets a more accomplished driver in the bike. (5) OLDE TIME HOCKEY was empty last week; he's capable of being more involved from this spot.

Race 3

(5) COWBOY TERRIER showed a new dimension last week by kicking home nicely from off the pace; he merits a serious look tonight, especially from these connections. (1) N J LAW is up in class again but he's been sharp in his last two. (6) DOCTOR BUTCH hasn't raced badly since returning as a four-year-old but he's seemed to have lacked the knockout punch.

Race 4

(2) NEPTUNE takes a needed drop in class and gets post relief as well; lots to like. (4) ONE THROUGH TEN went evenly last week after saving ground; Brennan drives tonight and he may be forwardly placed. (3) BUBBIE BOY didn't really fire last out but at least Sears is driving again.

Race 5

(1) GLASS PRINCE went an insane trip to score last week and he gets a free ride at this level; repeats. (7) VERSADO may be gunning out and if he finds an early spot he'll be trouble. (4) MONEY TWITCH A should be able to garner a share versus these.

Race 6

(8) ITRUSTYOU raced well in the Levy; one would expect Gingras to be aggressive enough early to overcome the eight-hole handicap. (1) HESTON BLUE CHIP makes his third start back from vacation and lands inside; no more excuses...this one should be ready to roll. (5) GOBAN has good early speed if Bartlett elects to use it.

Race 7

(4) LAWGIVER HANOVER gets some post relief and returns to a catch-driver; worth a look in this wide-open event. (2) REAL NICE is clearly feeling good again after a prolonged rough stretch; big threat to take his third straight. (7) STATESMAN N is back up the ladder after cruising in two straight versus lesser.

Race 8

(6) FASHION MYSTERY dropped down last week and faltered on the front end; this is a wide-open consolation affair tonight and she's proven to be capable of rallying off a trip. (2) RAMALAMA draws best and merits respect based on that angle. (7) SHELLISCAPE is probably best here but she may be done in by the eight hole.

Race 9 - Matchmaker Final

(4) YAGONNAKISSMEORNOT has been nothing short of phenomenal since the Rene Allard purchase. Mare is coming into this race in career form and Dube has good tactical options starting from this inside post. (3) SOMWHEROVRARAINBOW has loads of ability but has proven to be a bit bumpy early; two back my top choice rolled right over her. (2) ANNDROVETTE hasn't been at her best but she's capable of stepping up with a top effort.

Race 10

Not only are (1) EASY AGAIN and (1A) CLEAR VISION the two best horses in the race, but they both draw well and are coupled in the wagering; $2.10 for a win and place price may be value here. (3) MALAK USWAAD N could save ground and arrive with a late rally. (4) ROCK ON MOE has sucked along in every leg of the series and has picked up some checks; it's not impossible to hit the bottom of the ticket.

Race 11 - Levy Final

(2) FOILED AGAIN lands back inside for the Levy final off last week's no-chance tour of the track. Veteran has come back sharper than ever this season and he'll be very tough if he's not harassed too much early. (6) DANCIN YANKEE has been razor-sharp and he may have been my top choice if not for the poor post. I do expect Pierce to look for an early seat and have him in striking position at some point in the mile. (1) P H SUPERCAM was a $15,000 claimer this time last year and now he's a legitimate contender in the Levy final. Last week he was off the gate in :26 4/5 and home in :26 4/5 to upset. Obvious threat from this inside post.

Race 12

(6) DALLENBACH HANOVER faltered late after a two-move effort last week. There's no reason why he shouldn't head to the front again. (1) COLE HEAT is up in class again but he's been stellar in his last few. (4) PANONGHAELA is a good fit with these.
