Yonkers: Sunday 12/13 Analysis


MEET STATS: 394 - 1192 / $2,202.00  BEST BETS: 56 - 96 / $196.60

Best Bet: TAC’S DELIGHT (4th)

Spot Play: RONNY BUGATTI (12th)


Race 1

(2) ALEXANDER LUKAS comes in off a solid two-move second place finish versus similar last out and can graduate today with smooth sailing. (8) CAMBRIDGE is stuck outside but he picks up Bartlett and has been facing better. (12) LUKAS HALL returns locally with class relief for Mark Ford.

Race 2

(9) SUMATRA has done everything right the last few weeks except win. The sharp trotter is just a smooth trip away from a victory. (10) NOT AFRAID when right this veteran is best but he's off three weeks. (1) CAN DO has been a solid earner since moving to the Reidel barn.

Race 3

(5) THERAPUTIC showed nothing last out but that was a needed start and he was facing better; Burke trainee fits with these and is worth a look. (8) ROCK OF CASHEL is stuck outside but he closed well last out and now adds Dube. (3) MUGSHOT JESS was uninvolved last out but he was a winner the start prior.

Race 4

(5) TAC'S DELIGHT has been super recently including a totally dominating win last out; he should repeat despite the rise in class. (2) PERFECT RENDITION trotted evenly in his local return for Stalbaum and he draws favorably again. (4) PASADENA STAR missed a nose at this level last out.

Race 5

(10) FOR YOU ALMOSTFREE put in a better effort last out after a series of ugly efforts and the veteran can build off that race. (5) GWALLY returns off a good second up at Saratoga and the trotter seems to fit nicely at this level. (1) EXTRACURRICULAR looks for three straight but he won't offer any value.

Race 6

(1) ZORGWIJK NOVA has been racing well save for last out when she was uninvolved from a tough spot; the drop in class and the post relief can get her over the top. (8) SCOTTISH CROSS has been very consistent for Allard and she'll likely be on the move early from this spot. (5) SHE WORE RED was a good second in her local debut to a runaway winner.

Race 7

(10) BRICKYARD TOOTS rallied too late last out and she gets one final chance this year to reach on time; Baynes trainee certainly is capable. (9) CRAZED N LINDY returns to a professional driver and will attract some attention. (2) TURTLE EXPRESS picks up Bartlett upon arrival from Saratoga but he needs to mind his manners.

Race 8

(3) SODY'S MOONSHINE jogged last week versus similar and should be able to repeat. (1) BACK TO THE WEST went evenly versus the top choice last out and should be able to hold position from this spot, with the other contenders on the far outside. (7) BETTOR DESIGN has been aggressively handled in all starts recently.

Race 9

(4) TOUCH THE ROCK ships from Saratoga in fine form and he looks like the best price of the logical contenders. (3) WAYNE THE LEFTY was a winner in his local return and he'll be favored to repeat. (1) AMASA AL gets needed post relief and should be right there late.

Race 10

(4) BABE'S I SCOOT steps up to face tougher but he was a solid winner in two straight off the Lance Hudson claim. (2) SEA STAR jogged from the pocket in his debut for Allard; obvious threat and likely favorite. (1) MAGIC MANNY has good speed and the best draw.

Race 11

(2) STOLEN CAR wasn't bad last week, having some late pace after getting shuffled; veteran may be rounding into form and deserves a long look from this inside post. (5) BACKUP A returns to Bartlett and fits well with these. (3) BEST DEAL YET N raced well with lesser here and returns off a win at Freehold.

Race 12

(4) RONNY BUGATTI has always had the class and the talent and now he looks back in good racing shape; I'll give him a shot in this competitive 2015 finale. (6) EL SHOOTER shipped east, joined the Burke barn and jogged in two straight at The Meadowlands; big threat. (1) DEMOCRACY N gets a free ride at this level after beating these last week.
