Yonkers: Sunday 3/13 Analysis


MEET STATS: 68 - 213 / $386.50

BEST BETS: 7 - 18 / $26.00

Best Bet: TOBER (3rd)

Spot Play: ESCUELA (2nd)

Race 1

(4) CRAZSHANA didn't go the easiest of trips last out and understandably flattened late; consider from this spot at what will be an improved price. (8) LUMINOSITY was razor-sharp right off the bench swallowing up a game (7) MAJOR ATHENS; both of these nice trotters have to be included.

Race 2

(1) ESCUELA was very sharp in her local debut for the Garcia-Herrera barn and she can repeat despite facing tougher. (4) SKATES N PLATES should have a clear path to the lead today. (6) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE makes his third start off the layoff and Schnittker's trotter should have more to offer.

Race 3

(5) TOBER has looked good since returning in 2016 and this is a pretty soft field of NW18000 types. (4) HEADSAREGONNA TURN was overmatched in his last couple and has been competitive at this level. (3) THERESADEMONINME should be forwardly placed from this spot.

Race 4

(1) BINGO QUEEN is always a risky proposition but if she minds her manners and is close enough she can grind these down. (3) ZORGWIJK NOVA has been solid at this $30K claiming level and looks like the one to beat. (5) THERAPUTIC is steady stock from Burke.

Race 5

(2) RAS SHAKINTHTBACON had nothing to offer from the eight hole in her first start off the layoff but clearly she can be more involved today. (3) BRICKYARD CLASSIC gets some needed class relief for Ray Baynes. (9) EXPLOSIVEDAY has been solid recently but needs to navigate the second tier.

Race 6

(9) WESTERN CREDIT took some money last week and raced well; Auciello trainee has been sneaky sharp in his last few and has as good a chance as any here. (1) NOBLE WARRAWEE drops, draws inside and was Dube's choice. (6) PLAY THE JUSTICE should be a big price and can be considered underneath.

Race 7

(9) MOVEMENT drops in class after breaking in her local return; barn had an upset winner here the other night. (5) COMMISSIONER DALEY steps up a notch looking for two straight. (4) MAGNUM KOSMOS has a breaking problem but the ability has always been there.

Race 8

(8) TOUCH THE ROCK is a powerhouse at this basement claiming level; why is everyone afraid to claim him? (3) ROETHBLISSBERGER was held at bay by the top choice last week upon dropping to this level. (2) TOUCH ANO GO inherits the rail and will be a part of this.

Race 9

(6) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS upset right off the bench then was stuck in a quick mile last out at The Big M. DiDomenico trainee raced well here last year. (8) RONNY BUGATTI may be the best but needs a way into the race. (5) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N was aggressively handled last week and will offer a good price here.

Race 10

(2) WHAT I BELIEVE took care of business right off the Banca claim and seems capable of repeating. (4) EXIT CAM gave it a good try last out but came up short; that effort showed he can compete with these. (1) LUCKY MCTRUCKY will be aggressively handled early looking to protect position.

Race 11

(3) GALLANT SEELSTER gets needed post relief which will help his cause but he's a noted money-burner; Dube can send him to the front today. (4) HI HO STEVERINO just missed last week after being part of a fast pace. (6) HALL OF TERROR was totally dead on the board and raced like it last out; seems capable of better.

Race 12

(4) SANTA FE BEACHBOY is sharp and has class shipping in to join the Banca barn; he's routine selecting but won't be much value. (1) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS lands the best post and has plenty of early speed. (8) MOONLITEONTHEBEACH was a very sharp winner last week after taking all the money but he may have too far to come from this spot unless there's a courtesy tuck waiting.
