Yonkers: Saturday 9/6 Analysis


MEET STATS: 271 - 780 / $1369.90  BEST BETS: 46 - 64 / $146.60

Best Bet: FAT MANS ALLEY (8th)

Spot Play: DREAM OUT LOUD N (6th)


Race 1

(4) CEE PEE PANIC had no chance last out in a paceless race, but three starts back at this level he raced well from a similar post. He's got a chance here in a wide-open event. (2) TELL US MORE has been facing better recently with some success. (7) BULLET BOB fits well with these and he does have some early speed to work with; does Steve Smith get him involved?

Race 2

(2) THAT MAN OF MINE faces his softest competition in some time and he really shouldn't fail from this spot. (3) HIGH OCTANE N steps up off a solid uncovered score and he's got a chance to repeat if given a similar trip. (7) ONE THROUGH TEN is stuck outside again but Brennan's driving tonight and I wouldn't be shocked if he tried to fire from the gate.

Race 3

(5) ONE AND ONLY toured the track with no chance last week; Sabot trainee should be more involved tonight. (1) PANONGAHELA was a good second at this level two back and he draws best here; big threat. (3) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS gets some needed post relief tonight for Lachance, who will probably sit with him, just like he did in his last nine starts.

Race 4

(7) MCERLEAN has had solid pace in all his recent outings but his last two he had no chance of reaching. He's stuck outside again but I have to give him one more chance. (5) MACHS BEACH BOY drops in class off a solid try where he was chasing the well-rated Doctor Butch; I think he's the one to beat in here. (2) MAY DAY has good speed, ends up with the best draw and has Sears driving.

Race 5

(2) HI HO STEVERINO drops, draws better and was Sears' choice over (1) LAWGIVER HANOVER. The latter was a bit erratic on the rim last week after taking all the money. Tonight Vallee drives but he's obviously got a big chance. (3) GALLANT SEELSTER returns locally and has some class to him.

Race 6

(3) DREAM OUT LOUD N has come up big in his last three efforts without a victory to show for it; classy Cassar import appears overdue. (4) SAPPHIRE CITY was handled aggressively from post eight last out but had to back off and was done; he has to be considered from post four tonight in this open draw. (1) RAMPAGE JACKSON has been super but he gets tested for class tonight.

Race 7

(2) SAFE HARBOR has to move up in class off two consecutive easy victories but I don't see anyone getting in his way tonight; repeats again. (6) JUSTIFIED  gets a touch of class and post relief and the Burke trainee can be more involved. (3) OFF LIKAPROMDRESS has turned into a quality overnight animal and he should be close up from this spot.

Race 8

(1) FAT MANS ALLEY had zero chance in his last two from outside posts versus tough competition; a spot like this is where the classy gelding prospers. (4) PANCETTA also drops from the Open ranks and he tries Sears tonight. (2) RONNY BUGATTI returns locally off an awesome stint at Saratoga and clearly Siegelman gets along well with him.

Race 9

(2) THE REAL ONE drops for the third consecutive week and last week he was a solid second to the big favorite; he's done nothing wrong since arriving from Canada. (1) SOURCE OF PRIDE will likely be controlling the action from this spot. (4) LIFE UP FRONT may have tailed off in his last few but he may have just been discouraged from facing tougher.

Race 10

(4) COMICBOOK HERO held pretty well after coming uncovered into a very soft pace; Burke charge may be forwardly placed with Brennan at the controls. (1) BJ'S GUY will get a live trip from this spot almost by default.  (5) LUCAN HANOVER is still looking to get underway this season and I can see him being overbet here.

Race 11

(3) DREAMLANDS ART was very stubborn in defeat last week and there's no reason to think he won't be just as competitive here. (1) THIRTY TWO RED took them down the road last out but couldn't last; he gets another crack from the rail spot tonight. (5) EXIT CAM has proven in his last few that he actually belongs with these.

Race 12

(3) LETS ROCK TOGETHER has hit the ticket in his two starts since arriving and the Allard trainee should be well-spotted from this post. (4) VILLAGE BEAT drops back to the level of his last win. (7) WORD POWER would probably be the top choice if not for the outside post.
