Yonkers: Sunday 11/13 Analysis

Email

MEET STATS: 400 - 1152 / $2,182.10

BEST BETS: 52 - 93 / $172.00

Best Bet: MACINTOSH N (10th)

Spot Play: LUMINOSITY (1st)

 

Race 1

(3) LUMINOSITY catches three breaks today: he gets the best possible draw, he faces a field of only seven rivals going the added distance and he meets a pretty weak Open field. This looks like his race to lose. (5) HEMI SEELSTER has been an absolute terror since joining the Milici barn but does face better today. (6) TORNADO TIM has proven he can be a big closing threat and the added distance can help his cause.

Race 2

(9) NOT AFRAID oozes class for Takter and he shows up for work week after week; veteran can top these given a smooth second-tier trip. (3) RED HOT HERBIE was a solid winner from the pocket two back at this distance beating the top choice. (1) LADY'S DUDE returns locally off two solid scores out of town and the Burke trainee has had his moments here.

Race 3

(3) ZORGWIJK NOVA was very impressive on the front end last out, her second start off the Banca reclaim; she's capable of repeating. (10) PIERCEWAVE HANOVER will offer up good late trot if in striking position turning for home. (9) XTATIC HANOVER was empty last week but he was a solid second two back versus similar.

Race 4

(2) WING FLASH dug in gamely last week holding off a decent rival in the process; Julie Miller trainee has looked great in her two local starts and deserves top billing off those efforts. (3) CLEMENTINE DREAM just missed in a good speed try last out at this distance. (8) SUMATRA gets class relief and would possibly be my top choice if not for the poor post.

Race 5

(2) CI'S BUCKEYE has shown nice versatility since shipping in for Milici, including a win last out at this level, this distance; Bartlett drives again. (6) SOUL TRAIN has looked much, much better in his last two. (7) CALL ME RICHARD ships from Canada, where he has been racing well on the 'B' circuit, and he joins the Harris barn. (4) SIM BROWN goes for a new barn and merits following, possibly for future weeks.

Race 6

(2) WALLTOCOUSINS drops to the basement off a series of even efforts and he deserves top billing in this competitive event. (10) LO RAIL CROSSING debuts for Banca via claim and lures leading driver Bartlett off the morning-line favorite (6) GEORGINA CORNER, who did have late trot last week but too far to come.

Race 7

(4) WESTERN CREDIT was absolutely awful at this distance last out but that was against better; his prior two efforts versus this type resulted in sharp wins. Let's hope he reverts to that form. (1) DREAMSTEELER qualified very effectively for Banca with Stratton driving and he's in the bike again. (10) FOX VALLEY STEFFEN has hit the ticket in four of five versus similar.

Race 8

(3) SHORTSTACKED returns locally off a decent win at Philly and the veteran fits well with these. (1) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT is reunited with Bartlett, who drove him to a sharp eight-hole win two back. (4) DRUNKEN DESIRE A was overmatched last week but he was second best at this level a few times recently.

Race 9

(7) ONE THROUGH TEN returns from vacation now in the Milici barn and he qualified effectively up at Monticello; Bartlett's driving and he'll likely be sending him to the front. (2) STEVENSVILLE doesn't win as often as he should but he'll be in line for a good trip from this spot. (1) ROCK TO GLORY draws best in his local return and should be heard from.

Race 10

(3) MACINTOSH N drops in class, where he's proven to be a very live fit, and he gets the services of Sears in the sulky. (7) MOONWRITER has been live in his two starts for the Harris barn. (1) COWBOY TERRIER has been too inconsistent recently to endorse at a short price.
