Yonkers: Saturday 9/14 Analysis


MEET STATS: 279 - 784 / $1568.60     BEST BETS: 38 - 61 / $128.90


Best Bet: FAT MANS ALLEY (7th)

Spot Play: SECOND WIND N (3rd)

Race 1

(2) HI HO STEVERINO gets needed post relief in his second start at this reduced level and the veteran should be ready to roll from this spot. (4) K SLATER woke up with an improved effort last week and he drops in class tonight. (6) SEA VENTURE also gets class relief and he could be a closing threat.

Race 2

(1) P H JACKPOT returns locally and was an easy winner when last seen at this level. (3) WEE BROTHER N has been racing well versus lesser stock at Philly and he may be sharp enough to contend with these. (2) GOBAN shipped in and acclimated well last week.

Race 3

(5) SECOND WIND N is not the most reliable horse out there but he's had his moments here in the past, including a Levy win and an appearance in the final. Versatile sort can take this with a live setup. (1) MAYTIME TERROR ships back for live connections and draws best; threat. (8) VILLAGE BEAT gets needed class relief tonight but he's stuck in post eight, which may seal his fate.

Race 4

(1) SAND BENELLI has really turned it around in his last two and Dube should be able to work out a live trip from this spot. (2) THESEYESRCRYING almost went the distance versus similar last week. (6) ROADWAY closed belatedly last out and he's capable on his best day.

Race 5

(4) THE POKESTER failed to fire last week but I'm going to give him one more chance versus this suspect field; Brennan sticks. (3) FOOL OF IDEAS shipped in and beat lesser in game style; worth a look on the class hike. (8) WHIRL MONROE drops in class and will be a price departing from post eight.

Race 6

(4) GREAT VINTAGE returned locally last week and failed from off the pace; he's in a spot where he can leave the gate and maybe he can luck out with a live trip. (2) ARACACHE HANOVER has been facing tons better and he ships in for Burke as clearly the horse to beat; somehow he ends up with an inside draw. (3) DOMETHATAGAIN has been a victim of poor posts in his last two.

Race 7

(1) FAT MANS ALLEY looked like he could have gone around three more times when he blew away lesser last out; he draws best and can repeat. (4) PAN FROM NANTUCKET was game in defeat last week after battling on the front end. (2) LIGHTNING RAIDER returns to Brennan and draws well.

Race 8

(1) ROCK TO GLORY has turned out to be a solid claim. He returns locally after racing well with the best at Saratoga and he draws best. (4) CLASSIC ROCK NROLL gets post relief after two wasted eight-hole efforts. (2) MYSTERIOUS MOMENT should save ground here and be in the hunt late.

Race 9

(4) ROLLWITHITHARRY was a game winner in his debut for DiDomenico and he can be a price again with the class hike. (5) ALL SPEED HANOVER broke leaving last out; toss that effort and the veteran rates highly here. (1) I LIKE DREAMIN should land a piece from the rail.

Race 10

(1) SIR MELO'S Z TAM gets major post relief and could be best in an otherwise forgettable event. (3) MAY DAY got parked the mile last week; threat with a smoother trip. (2) DRUMFIRE A was Goodell's choice and he drops in class.

Race 11

(3) TREND SPOTTER was racing well down at Philly when Burke had him; maybe that can translate well here. (1) FLYING INSTRUCTOR exits claimers and draws best; he may be the favorite here in a lackluster field. (4) RAFFERTY HANOVER may best of the rest from this spot. Hard to get excited about anybody in here.

Race 12

(3) EIGHTEEN does his best work on the front end and he should be on the lead from this spot. (5) OUTRAGEOUS ART got jammed up in the pocket and broke at Philly; prior form is solid. (1) LETTUCEROCKU A drops and draws best; recipe for success?
