Yonkers: Thursday 1/7 Analysis


FINAL 2015 STATS: 246 - 1167 / $1,690.80  BEST BETS: 29 - 97 / $127.80

Best Bet: STORMUNN (12th)



Race 1

(7) SENTIMENTAL LADY flashed good speed in her latest, but tired in the stretch drive last out. On November 20th, this gal took down the 1-9 choice Hustleonhome with a 3-hole trip; threat at her best tonight. (1) ISLAND VIEW makes her second try at this level and the rail slot should put her in the mix. (4) HUSTLEONHOME has not been the same since her last victory on October 29th, but must be considered in the exotics.

Race 2

(2) SIMPLE SAVER N was on the engine but was nailed at the wire for win honors at Freehold in her last trip. Blank in 8 starts last year, but this seems to be a perfect spot for this mare to make a quick turnaround. (1) CRUISINWITHMYBABY showed signs of life in her latest at the Meadowlands last time around; big threat. (3) BORN TO DREAM put in two nice efforts in a row at the Big M; dangerous.

Race 3

(4) DEREK DELIGHT scored her second straight victory on December 11. Clearly she is the speed of the speed, so the hat trick is surely not out of the question. (7) BAD GIRL VEGAS was second best against the top pick last time out; sharp enough to be a major factor in here. (5) BABY REMIND ME posted an even trip last out. Five-year-old mare could move forward.

Race 4

(7) HOOSIER CHATTER showed some early zip in her previous outing. If Holland chooses to change tactics with this gal, she could mow them down; needs a favorable trip. (2) CHAMPAGNE SHOWER put in a nice run last time out but could not get to the winner Derek Delight recently; big threat tonight. (1) CHECK MY PULSE comes by way of Saratoga. Was facing slightly tougher last time around, so the rail slot could be what she needs to factor with these.

Race 5

(6) THEREISAPACEFORUS rallied strongly recently to miss the victory by only a length and a quarter. Gelding appears to be heading in the right direction. Despite the rise in class, this guy can make tonight a winning one. (4) A PLUS HANOVER comes off two dull efforts upstate and now this gelding makes his return to the Hilltop where he got the job done on October 6th; must be considered. (5) DISARREI was over his head against tougher, so the drop in class should help his cause; we shall see.

Race 6

(5) JUST PLAIN LUCK is a very consistent gelding that took the pocket route home for glory last time around. He has a fondness for Yonkers since the move from Canada; poised to get it done. (2) CAMTURO ROCK was very good in his last three and got the job done here on November 20th; main danger. (1) DOUBLE YOUR BET was dull in his latest, but the rail should put him right square in the mix; watch out.

Race 7

(5) HALTON HURRICANE chasing better at the Meadowlands last time out but tired in the stretch drive. Now he moves his trade to the half-mile oval. His tactical speed could put him right in the scope of a victory tonight; threat at his best. (1) OK GALAHAD was third best at the Big M two trips ago. Last time he was on the fence, this gelding was a strong second on December 4th; dangerous. (6) HALL OF TERROR fits with this group, showed speed in his Jersey finale; can't be overlooked in this event.

Race 8

(7) THE FILLY PRINCESS takes a slight drop in class. Gets a tough post, but this gal is very capable if given a favorable trip. (3) SHES HEAVENLY Jersey invader has flashed speed in her last three trips to the post; could have a say in the outcome. (2) JENNAS PATRIOT ships in from Saratoga with a cozy slot to work with; not out of this.

Race 9

(2) PLAYAWAY N gets class relief for leading trainer and driver combo. On November 13, this gal was very game for the show spot. A move forward is not out of the question. (1) DELICIOUSLYNAUGHTY rallied strongly to nail down the victory last time out at Saratoga. Should fit well with these gals; main danger. (5) LITTLE MISS HENRY has sharp speed and took the pocket route home for glory three trips ago; not out of this.

Race 10

(4) COACH CAL makes his second try at this level. With a change in tactics, this guy could roll by these for all the marbles. (1) UNCLE GOODFELLOW moves back inside and that should help his cause; maybe. (3) HARDTS OR BETTOR was strong from the pocket but could not get to the winner in his latest; beware tonight.

Race 11

(1) CANACO STAR went to a stop from the rail last time out. Napolitano might try to get this mare to relax for the final stretch run; capable. (3) EXHILARATED closed sharply to grab the victory recently at the Meadowlands; consider in all the exotic slots. (7) LITTLE SANTAMONICA was facing better in her last try and rallied down the lane to nail down the place spot; big threat.

Race 12

(4) STORMUNN was sharp in victory last time out. This seems to be another perfect spot for this gal to repeat; the one to deny. (8) KAITLYN RAE is on a roll scoring her second straight score. Post hurts, but she is sharp enough to make some noise again. (3) LYONS SHADOW gets post relief and the last time she was here, pacing miss got the job done three starts back; consider.
