Yonkers: Sunday 1/10 Analysis


FINAL 2015 STATS: 401 - 1216 / $2,254.60 

BEST BETS: 57 - 98 / $200.00

Best Bet: TAC’S DELIGHT (2nd)

Spot Play: MADIBA MAGIC N (11th)

Race 1

(5) SCOTTISH CROSS has speed, is well mannered, lands in a good midpack spot and hails from the Allard barn, which seems to have come back sharp in this young season. (7) OH MY MAGIC jogged upon arrival and can build off that effort. (3) MAGNUM KOSMOS is lightly raced but is very talented.

Race 2

(4) TAC'S DELIGHT ran well last out but lacked the power punch he had in prior efforts; he's back down a notch in class and can draw away from these. (5) PARKHILL LANCELOT has trouble staying trotting the duration, but is a threat if he minds his manners. (2) DREAM ROCKER draws well and seems to fit with these.

Race 3

(6) ROCK OF CASHEL never fired last out at The Meadowlands but had been making live moves in his prior Yonkers starts; classy trotter should be a smooth trip away from glory. (5) HASTY PROFITT ships in off a win on the big track and picks up Sears. (4) SUMMER INDIAN gets some needed class relief for Burke.

Race 4

(1) I C CAVIAR has had some good recent closing efforts and he should be closer from this spot; worth a look. (2) BASTILLE has been sharp and certainly makes the most sense, but the veteran isn't the most prolific winner. (6) FICO seems to be better than he's been showing.

Race 5

(10) CHARLES VII returns locally off a very brave try at The Meadowlands and he raced reasonably well here versus better; he should be a big player with a smooth trip. (6) EXTRACURRICULAR looks for four straight for sharp connections; logical favorite. (8) CASH POOR did beat better a couple of months back but needs some help from this post; consider if the price is right.

Race 6

(6) MONEY MAVEN ships in from Canada and joins the Julie Miller barn; trotter is worth a long look both on the track and the toteboard. (3) LUKAS HALL returns with class relief and looks like a player. (4) CAMBRIDGE has disappointed of late, burning money in the process; he seems capable of better.

Race 7

(9) BORN TO FIGHT has been knocking heads with better recently and finds a very suspect field here; Mark Ford trainee is worth a play. (2) BIG PAYOUT had been racing decently prior to the holiday break; he will be on or near the lead from this spot. (10) BLUEBIRD KIDSQUEEN has proven to fit with this type and she should be a decent price.

Race 8

In a very competitive 6-horse affair, I'll take a look at (3) SUMATRA for some value. Trotter had been rock solid in all recent without a victory to show for it before being used too hard last out. With some racing luck he can upset. (2) TWEET ME has been very sharp, including an easy upset win in her last local try. (6) RED HOT HERBIE is the horse to beat from Allard despite the outside assignment.

Race 9

(1) ZOOMING gets needed class and post relief and should be able to trip out from this spot. (5) CROSBYS CLAM BAKE has been flashing good speed out of town and should be forwardly placed here, especially with Brennan driving. (4) CLEMENTINE DREAM finished in behind the top choice last out and figures for a share here.

Race 10

(6) FOUR CORNERS has shown improvement since moving to the DiDomenico barn and he can have a conditioning edge in these having raced last week at Freehold. (1) RING WARRIOR will undoubtedly show more from this spot for Banca. (4) DASH N has loads of back class and local experience.

Race 11

(5) MADIBA MAGIC N has taken his last three starts at this level yet still may offer value from this spot. (1) JUSTIFIED finally lands a good spot and will be prominent throughout. (3) ALLSTAR LEGEND ships in for Burke looking for two straight.
