Yonkers: Sunday 11/20 Analysis


MEET STATS: 410 - 1182 / $2,223.50

BEST BETS: 54 - 96 / $177.40

Best Bet: ITS A GOOD THING (8th)

Spot Play: SIM BROWN (5th)


Race 1

(7) HEMI SEELSTER dominated last week and looked like he could have gone around five more times; Milici trainee will be moving early and gets the call to topple the mighty (8) BEE A MAGICIAN. The latter has come back from injury strong and should be very fresh this late in the season with only six starts on the year. (10) DOT DOT DOT DASH gets Kakaley back in the bike and could be a closing threat at a price.

Race 2

(6) SWISHNFLICK was driver MacDonald's choice of four in here and they teamed up to win at this level and this distance three back. (2) BINGO QUEEN closed strongly once shaking free and just missed last week; mare is always a threat when she minds her manners. (10) ZORGWIJK NOVA looks for three straight but she'll have to work a bit harder moving to the lead from the second tier.

Race 3

(2) SUMATRA raced well to secure second after leaving for a seat from the outside post last week; from the inside draw he should be in line for a perfect trip today. (3) BENTLEY SPUR has been on quite a roll but arguably faces tougher here despite racing for less money. (5) SOUL TRAIN has shown renewed vigor recently; threat.

Race 4

(4) KADABRASNEWRECRUIT trotted evenly for a board spot versus better last out and a silimar effort would make him tough in here. (5) LO RAIL CROSSING was a sharp winner off the Banca claim and Bartlett sticks with him. (6) WENDY'S GIRL has raced well in her last two for Burke, including last week's runner-up effort at a big price.

Race 5

(4) SIM BROWN goes second start for new connections and raced decently last week; he picks up leading driver Bartlett today. (3) MOVEMENT was reclaimed by Laterza and picked up another win last week; trotter is razor-sharp and can clearly take another. (1) YOZHIK is lightly raced but has flashed ability on occasion.

Race 6

(5) WELL CONNECTED KID ships in and debuts for Milici while luring Bartlett off three other horses; trotter has raced well here in the past. (2) DREAMSTEELER closed strongly inside last week to win and can certainly repeat. (1) EMPIRE EARL makes his fourth U.S. start and may have more to offer.

Race 7

(3) JOSIE'S JOY ships from the midwest for the Lorentzon barn and that angle has worked in the past. (1) KLM EXPRESS has a lot of mileage on him but he's still competitive. (4) MASSIVE TALENT has raced reasonably well for board spots in his last three.

Race 8

(2) ITS A GOOD THING is back at the basement claiming level where he was an open-lengths winner two back. (8) ADDWATER goes for another new barn and he's been sharp in all recent; only problem here is the post. (5) ETHAN HANOVER is making his third start off the layoff and he's got some back class.

Race 9

(1) INVICTUS HANOVER takes a drop in class despite racing well with better and he looms large from the best post. (4) GRIN FOR MONEY jogged in two starts since shipping from Canada and joining the Milici barn. (3) HIGH JOLTAGE has been racing well but Dube opted off.

Race 10

(3) SPINARAMA has back class and I like the switch to Bartlett. (1) LAUXMONT CAPRI returns from upstate and he's raced well here in the past. (8) BEST SAID is stuck with the worst post but he's got solid early speed which could get him into play.
