Yonkers: Saturday 7/2 Analysis


MEET STATS: 213 - 629 / $1149.00  BEST BETS: 30 - 53 / $105.70

Best Bet: MACH IT SO (6th)

Spot Play: GREAT VINTAGE (7th)


Race 1

(1) MYSHARONA BLUECHIP lands the best post shipping in from Pocono and despite lacking the class of others Dube may be able to work out a winning trip. (6) MATTAMERICAN was a winner last out at The Big M and was a winner versus similar here a couple of months ago; logical. (2) RU READY TO ROCK may have needed last week's race after being scratched sick.

Race 2

(6) E Z NOAH'S last local race was a disaster and now he's missed time but if right the Allard trainee may be best. (4) WESTERN ROCKSTAR bumps up off a solid uncovered score. (1) ROCK ICON was Bartett's choice of three in here.

Race 3

(4) BETTOREVER was in the Levy when last seen locally; he's back in comfortable surroundings and is reunited with Bartlett. (1) STOLEN CAR just missed last week and now moves all the way inside; big player. (6) CLINT WESTWOOD gets Dube back in the bike after having no chance last week.

Race 4

(5) BLOOD BROTHER did nothing last week in that speedy mile but he gets Bartlett back and I expect much more tonight. (3) BJ'S GUY raced well last out with decent speed at both ends and he should land a big piece here. (2) J T kept up well for Abbatiello last out and he's inside again.

Race 5

(4) BIG N BAD didn't fire last week after being in a tough spot but his form prior to that was stellar; from this improved post I'll give him the call to rebound. (1) ANNIESWESTERNCARD is on the comeback trail for Burke. (5) SECOND WIND N is back with Stratton and he moves inside a couple of spots; definite closing threat.

Race 6

(1) MACH IT SO is better than these and somehow got to draw for his post, ending up with the rail. Down the road at 2/5. (2) SOMEWHERE IN L A held pretty well off an uncovered trip last week; threat. (5) SANTA FE BEACHBOY returns to Yonkers and has proven he can go with these.

Race 7

(3) GREAT VINTAGE likely needed last week's start where he went evenly from too far back; Dube's driving tonight and he can be more aggressively handled. (2) LETTUCEROCKTHEM A is a clear talent for Allard who appears a bit off his game recently; perhaps the move back to Yonkers helps his cause. (1) ALLBEEF N NOBULL was a wire-to-wire winner in his last local appearance.

Race 8

(1) GO DADDY GO tied the track record last week in a scintillating performance; whay can't he repeat? (4) IN THE ARSENAL has underwhelmed this season but clearly he's capable of better. (2) JENERAL PATTON gets some needed post relief and must be included.

Race 9

(6) BIG BOY DREAMS is reunited with Sears after taking a shuffle last week; two back they teamed to be front-end winners in 1:51 1/5. (2) NORTHVIEW PUNTER N gets needed post relief and hails from a barn that's going well now. (1) PHIL YOUR BOOTS will be close up throughout but always seems to burn money; use caution.

Race 10

(5) HILLBILLY HANOVER has been solid in his two local starts and should be a decent price in a tough-to-figure event. (3) WICK N gets Brennan in the bike and may be more aggressively handled. (2) IDEALBEACH HANOVER has been a bit short in his last couple but if he reverts back to his form from three and four back he's a big threat.

Race 11

(3) LUMINOSITY seems like routine selecting given his generous post assignment. (7) MAJOR ATHENS bounced back in a big way last week and is a legit Open commodity. (5) ALLERAGE STAR was used hard early last week and tired late; threat.

Race 12

(6) THE REAL ONE has Dube driving again for Lachance and he only needs to be close enough to roll by late. (3) UF ROCKIN DRAGON has been solid in his last three yet still may offer a decent price. (7) BETTOR ROCK ON N needs an alert getaway or else he'll be too far back.
