Yonkers: Sunday 3/20 Analysis


MEET STATS: 77 - 249 / $425.10

BEST BETS: 10 - 21 / $36.30

Best Bet: OH MY MAGIC (6th)

Spot Play: RONNY BUGATTI (10th)

Race 1

(10) CRAZSHANA was aggressively handled and put in a winning position last week by Bartlett but came up a touch short; he has some work to do from this spot but will clearly be the best price of the contenders. (6) LUMINOSITY gets the needed post relief and is the one to beat. (8) MAJOR ATHENS was super last week and looks to repeat for the impossibly good Milici barn.

Race 2

(10) GIANNI has trouble behaving himself but the talent clearly is there; Dube can work out a live outer-tier trip and upset in what promises to be an entertaining affair. (2) HASTY PROFITT gets needed post relief and has leading driver Jason Bartlett in the bike. (7) HEADSAREGONNA TURN was a decent third last week chasing two tough ones who had it their own way on the front end; Team Buter trainee drops a notch in class. (6) CALIPARI also faces softer and can be considered for French driver Pierre Levesque.

Race 3

(1) NOT AFRAID and (3) RED HOT HERBIE both drop from Open company and they seem clearly better than these; nod to the Takter trainee, who is clearly the more proven commodity. (4) ALLERAGE STAR broke last out after dominating the week prior; Bartlett bails however and chooses the Banca-trained (5) MONROE COUNTY.

Race 4

(9) COUSIN EDDIE debuts for new connections while in career form; I think he's sharp enough to handle the class hike. (5) MASSIVE TALENT trotted a nice back half in a needed start up at Saratoga for the Allard barn. (8) RAS SHAKINTHTBACON was aggressively handled last week and gave way on the front end; she's likely to get better rim rating from this spot by French pilot Vercruysse.

Race 5

(1) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE finished with trot in his last two from tough spots; Schnittker trainee looks best here and should be driven accordingly. (10) THEREADEMONINME just missed last week and now gets the services of Bartlett. (3) NO RECESS hails from the live Spagnola barn, picks up Dube.

Race 6

(3) OH MY MAGIC was used early last week and finished just evenly when shuffled but it wasn't too long ago that this Burke trainee dominated this class in back to back starts. (4) MOVEMENT debuts for Allard via claim and the trainer keeps Bartlett in the sulky. (5) STORMONT PARK moves in a couple of spots and could rally for a minor share.

Race 7

(4) CHARLES VII returns from The Meadowlands and it wasn't too long ago that he beat much better than these. (10) AXIOS is another Chris Marino trainee who has the ability but needs to stay trotting; must include. (7) FICO has missed time but he has been good in his last two.

Race 8

(2) LIGHTNING RADIER N raced well last week to protect the pocket and held for a share; this looks like a decent inside spot for the veteran to trip out. (4) DEMOCRACY N finds his softest spot since the $40K claim last month. (5) THEREISAPACEFORUS had some late pace after saving ground in his debut for new connections; they keep him protected in this conditioned class and the well-bred gelding gets leading driver Bartlett today.

Race 9

(1) VILLAGE BEAT hung from the pocket two back but he lands the rail again today and can control the action. (3) SAND BENELLI hails from the Brittany Robertson barn, who had two very live winners this past Thursday night. (7) GALACTIC GALLEON N gets Bartlett in the bike but has much to do from this spot.

Race 10

(5) RONNY BUGATTI had no chance last week from post eight; this is a better spot and the gelding seems way overdue. (1) SOHO JACKMAN A drops and was an off-the-pace winner two back at this level. (4) BRETT MCFAVRELOUS was bottomed out by a Levy contender last week; Bartlett drives today.

Race 11

(1) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS finished with pace last week but it was a touch too late; in line for a better trip today. (2) KID PK returns locally, now in the Milici barn; routine selecting. (3) HI HO STEVERINO doesn't have a great win record but he's always around the number.

Race 12

(8) GOLD ROCKS tried hard from the eight hole in his Milici debut but never looked settled and was caught up in a fast mile; give him another chance. (4) HALL OF TERROR finds a much better spot today for the leading driver/trainer tandem. (1) SHORTSTACKED lands a cozy post and should pick up a share.
