Yonkers: Saturday 5/5 Analysis


MEET STATS: 127 - 366 / $616.30

Best Bet: FROGGY TURNER (3rd)        Spot Play: SHARKS LEGACY (5th)

Race 1

(3) MY LAST LAUGH destroyed lesser in his last two and he's got the class to compete with these. (4) STONEBRIDGE TONIC dropped out of the Levy and jogged; he's another that should fit nicely at this level. (2) SHORTSTACKED draws well for Vallee and figures to loom large.

Race 2

(6) URGENT ACTION was used up early last week; he drops again and is capable of rebounding. (1) OUTA MY HEAD gets class relief, post relief and Brennan in the bike. (4) K SLATER faces some tough ones here but he is sharp.

Race 3

(2) FROGGY TURNER just missed versus better last out; Pena trainee drops back to the winning level and Brennan should be controlling the action. (1) SALVESTER STALLION was shuffled from the pocket, finished with pace last week. (3) ROADWAY comes in off a win and he should be close up throughout.

Race 4

I liked the way (4) DALLENBACH HANOVER was aggressively handled last out, but unfortunately he got parked; give him another look here. (1) MILITARY STRATCOM was flat after an easy trip; is he tailing off? (5) SAND SUMMERFIELD gets a bit of class relief tonight.

Race 5

(1) SHARKS LEGACY picked up minor checks in the Levy, including one leg where he fended off champ Atochia for a board spot; Fanning trainee has plenty of class and he should be live from the rail. (6) HICKORY HORACE needs to be more involved early; Brennan drives. (3) SHOW ME UP gets class and post relief.

Race 6

(3) SEA VENTURE is very talented, but also very erratic; Pena trainee deserves consideration from this spot. (6) RIVER SHARK should be more involved from this spot. (2) WHACKAMOLE HANOVER might lack the class of others but he has a post edge.

Race 7

(2) STONEBRIDGE WISH had missed some time prior to last week's start and he came up a touch short; Allard trainee should be better tonight, (5) FOX VALLEY TRIBAL is reunited with Stalbaum and he's got plenty of speed. (3) GREYSTONE CASH is in career form.

Race 8

(6) LUCKY MAN was uninvolved in his last two; versus this field, perhaps Goodell could get more aggressive. (7) EMJAYEM GRAND A is good stock from Pena. (4) HERE WE GO AGAIN was nailed with no visible excuse last week; Burke trainee just doesn't like to win.

Race 9

(5) HIGH OCTANE N was a solid pocket-sitting winner in his third U.S. start; he faces a much tougher test tonight but the price should be right to take a shot. (1) BJ'S BEQUIA just missed in a fast clocking at Pocono; logical here. (4) MEANT TO BE ME closed in :26 4/5 last week from an impossible spot.

Race 10

(6) MACRAIDER N drops back into claimers; to the front tonight? (2) REPORT FOR DUTY N was all over the track last out; can Holland keep this one on the straight and narrow? (5) RAINING AGAIN has been solid in all recent starts for Jason Robinson.

Race 11

(1) SILENT SWING had pace in traffic last week; from the rail tonight, Mark Ford's veteran looks like the one to beat. (6) ELECTRIC OUI is capable of blasting from the gate. (5) MAJOR BELLE ships back from Philly/Chester off a game defeat.
