Yonkers: Sunday 2/28 Analysis


MEET STATS: 44 - 153 / $271.00

BEST BETS: 6 - 13 / $20.50

Best Bet: CRAZSHANA (9th)

Spot Play: GALACTIC GALLEON  N (12th)

Race 1

(7) DOT DOT DOT DASH may have too far to come from this spot but she's probably the best closer in here and the added distance could help. (8) ALLERAGE STAR blew away a cheaper field last week and has the speed to overcome the post. (1) BRANDOS MUSCLE MAN was sharp off the claim but he faces some tough ones on the class hike.

Race 2

(3) YOU'RE MAJESTIC didn't fire at all last week in a strung-out race but I have to believe she's better than that. (10) CASH ME OUT ships from The Meadowlands where he was wiped out in his most recent versus better. (2) TOBER was sharp in victory versus lesser in his first start off the bench.

Race 3

(2) BRICKYARD CLASSIC was a winner when last at this level and at this distance; if he doesn't get lost early in this bulky field he's got a chance. (10) SOUL TRAIN appears to have more talent than he's been showing. (5) PASADENA STAR has been good in his last few and is certainly logical from this spot.

Race 4

(1) ZORGWIJK NOVA has been a very consistent sort with this level of trotters and she was Sears' choice. (5) EXTRACURRICULAR enters a new barn while sharp and the veteran is a prime contender here. (3) THEREISADEMONINME looks for two straight for the raging Julie Miller barn.

Race 5

(10) SCOTTISH CROSS was collared at the wire last out by a classy rival and the veteran mare can rebound here, provided she's away smoothly from the second tier. (1) LATOKA is sharp and looks for four straight. (8) FOREVER AS is also sharp and seems to be a closing threat from this outside spot.

Race 6

(10) ARMOR HANOVER is up in class and has missed some time but he's shown live moves since arriving locally and faces a field full of question marks. (7) KLM EXPRESS rebounded with a good effort last out. (1) VEGLIANTINO draws the best post and should be a player.

Race 7

(4) COUSIN EDDIE continued his good form last out for his new barn and seems like the most logical option here. (2) FOLLOW MY DREAMS has been improved since Stratton took over the driving. (6) NOBLE ANTHONY is up a notch in class looking for two straight.

Race 8

(1) SHORTSTACKED keeps Brennan in the bike, drops in class, draws best and should be aggressively handled. (2) FORT KNOX qualified nicely but may need a start. (7) SOMESIZESOMESTYLE also gets class relief but the outside post may be too much to overcome.

Race 9

(5) CRAZSHANA had no chance last week getting away last from the eight hole; Bamond trainee was awesome prior to that and this improved post makes him legit here. (4) NOT AFRAID tailed off in his last couple but the Takter trainee is always capable of turning things around in a hurry. (7) MAJOR ATHENS was last week's winner and he'll probably be forwardly placed again.

Race 10

(1) ROETHBLISSBERGER gets that all-important post relief which makes him a serious player. (3) FOUR BOYS drops back down to the 20K level and draws well enough to be a force. Nice to see (2) FAT MANS ALLEY find the winner's circle again, as he did last week after saving ground and he remains at the same level.

Race 11

(5) PASS THEM BY N fired hard but was outbattled last week; give him another chance here. (1) DIAMOND COWBOY was caught uncovered last out and tired; trip will be better today. (3) CLASSIESISTAR N finally gets some needed post relief.

Race 12

(1) GALACTIC GALLEON N gets much-needed class and post relief today and was a winner when last at this level. (7) WINDS OF CHANGE gets Dube in the bike for Takter and he may be firing from the gate. (3) SNAP TO IT A gets a free ride off a win here last week.
