Yonkers: Thursday 1/19 Analysis


MEET STATS: 13 - 52 / $72.90

BEST BETS: 2 - 5 / $9.80


Spot Play: HOOSIER CHATTER (3rd)


Race 1

(8) SHADIOS plummets to the bottom level and can leave 100 mph which should make the outside post no problem. (3) I'M THE REAL MAJOR hasn't put in a bad effort in ages for William Mann. (7) MUSTANG MACH N is clearly a perfect fit at the level but he may not be able to match strides with the top choice early.

Race 2

(2) JARNAC isn't the most prolific winner out there but she should fit well at this level upon returning from The Meadowlands. (3) HOOVES ON FIRST was a nice off-the-pace winner last week; threat. (1) VORST arrives from The Meadows and joins Team Buter while drawing best.

Race 3

(3) HOOSIER CHATTER never wins but has also never faced such a soft field. (1) TWIN B HONOUR had no excuse from the pocket last week but she remains a solid speed threat from the best post with the top driver. (4) KIA KAHA N has looked awful but I have to believe there's more than meets the eye.

Race 4

(1) ENVIOUS HANOVER makes another cross-country trip returning from Cal-Expo off a win and she's been competitive versus better than these in the past. (4) HER OWN LAND raced evenly last week in a needed start and can show more tonight. (6) DUNE IN RED could be an early speed threat and obviously has to leave hard for her best chance.

Race 5

(3) TYLER didn't fire last week but probably needed that start for his new barn; veteran is capable of better. (2) LITTLEBITASWAGGER missed a nose last week for good connections. (5) TENDTOWIN gets a top driver back in the bike off a win at Monticello.

Race 6

(6) AMERICAN VENTURE is another horse returning from California for the Ruiz barn and he's a legit Saturday night-type who is capable of crushing these. (2) DIAMOND COWBOY lands in a better spot in his third start for new connections. (4) PIER HO TEMPTATION was a solid second last week.

Race 7

(4) SANTANNA ONE was a sharp two-move winner last week and he can certainly repeat at what could be a halfway decent price. (5) SKY MCFLY swept impressively from the eight hole last out versus one notch lesser and he'll attract plenty of attention at the windows. (2) WESTERN ALUMNI was Bartlett's choice and draws well enough.

Race 8

(1) SPINARAMA seems to fit with these and should be able to work out a perfect trip from this spot. (8) FASHION DELIGHT debuts for Hudson off the claim looking for two straight; needs an alert getaway. (6) RANGERS SURESHOT saw his four race win streak snapped last out and now has missed time; use underneath.

Race 9

(4) ANALYZE was handled aggressively last week from the eight hole despite missing a month of action and she understandably tired; mare can be tighter tonight. (1) PRINCESS KATIE debuts for new connections via claim and she's in good form while drawing best. (3) PASULTIMATEDELITE N seems to be better than she's been showing.

Race 10

(2) BABY REMIND ME likely needed last week's race where she was in a tough spot; Allard trainee should be ready to roll tonight. (3) MACHO CHICK is a good fit at this level and draws well enough. (5) BROWN BRINNY is back on consecutive weeks off a decent effort.
