Yonkers: Saturday 9/10 Analysis


MEET STATS: 313 - 906 / $1,728.70

BEST BETS: 42 - 75 / $142.40

Best Bet: MACH IT SO (5th)

Spot Play: SAPPHIRE CITY (7th)


Race 1

(7) FIRST CLASS HORSE moves to the Milici barn for this owner and that angle connected last week; Bartlett will hopefully be on the move early. (4) HEEZ ORL BLACK N never got close last week but he had missed almost a month; he moves in a few spots and can be more involved. (1) I LIKE DREAMIN draws best and could be in line for a live trip.

Race 2

(1) MASTERSON moves all the way in after being stuck in the eight hole last week; he will look to go wire-to-wire and complete the Milici double. (2) CHEYENNE SEEBER got hung to dry last out but now gets post relief and there doesn't appear to be an abundance of speed outside of him. (5) BAKERSFIELD drops back to a more appropriate level and can be a late threat.

Race 3

(1) BADIOU HANOVER has been racing well in all recent without a victory to show for it; this looks like a very good spot to get the job done. (2) SNAP TO IT A hung in the late stages last out but should be sitting a live trip here. (3) LUCKY MCTRUCKY was an easy winner versus lesser here two back.

Race 4

(2) BIG N BAD jogged in his Milici debut holding off a decent horse in the process; veteran can repeat despite facing better. (1) MICHAEL'S POWER ships back off a nice win at Philly and he has loads of back class. (4) CITY HALL has been flat in his last few but he's capable on his best day.

Race 5

(2) MACH IT SO gets needed class relief and should take full advantage. (6) SOMEWHERE IN L A has an Open win on his resume from five back; can he get into the game earlier from this spot? (7) FORTY FIVE RED has good speed and a driver who likes to take a shot; consider at a big price.

Race 6

(6) MELADY'S MONET switches back to leading driver Bartlett after being winless since the Vincennes on Hambo day; top billing. (1) E R ELLIE hit the board again last week and is a threat to do so again from the best post. (5) LUMINOSITY was an upset winner last week and clearly he's capable of repeating.

Race 7

(3) SAPPHIRE CITY was shuffled and buried along the rail last week in the Open; veteran can fire out from this spot and sit a live trip. (4) GREAT VINTAGE was scratched sick last out but clearly the Takter trainee is a huge threat if right. (2) ARQUE HANOVER got very erratic at the wire last week costing him the win; give him another look in his second local return start.

Race 8

(2) P H SUPERCAM ends up with a very lucky post in this open draw and he should take charge from this spot. (3) DOCTOR BUTCH was going nowhere last week after getting away last from an outside post; prior two efforts were super. (4) BIT OF A LEGEND N has missed some time off a poor showing at Pocono; tough to know what to expect from the Levy champ tonight.

Race 9

(3) THESEYESRCRYING gets needed post relief and has been the victim of some tough trips recently; worth a serious look at that juicy 20/1 morning line. (4) DENNY CRANE N was way short last week after missing almost a month; Vallee charge should be tighter tonight. (1) BADIX HANOVER has raced well since shipping in and he lands the best post.

Race 10

(3) E Z NOAH never really got involved last week but did have some late pace; Allard trainee drops a notch in class and is proven at this level. (8) ROCK ON MOE would be my top choice and the likely favorite if drawn inside; Stratton drives tonight. (1) BJ'S GUY is up in class for the 4th consecutive week while in good form.

Race 11

(1) FASHION CREDITOR broke while on the move last week; toss that out and his prior form is fine. (3) TWEET ME is back in good shape and she returns locally off some good efforts at Pocono. (4) MONEY MAVEN responded well to Brennan in the bike and was a solid winner; he's driving again.

Race 12

(2) FOOL ME ONCE never got involved last week but his prior effort from a similar post he was very game in defeat. (6) FOILED AGAIN is back locally and while he's clearly no longer a stakes commodity he can make a nice living in the overnight wars. (3) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH gets Bartlett in the bike and should be close throughout.
