Race 7 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

MEET STATS: 100 - 408 / $648.90

BEST BETS: 11 - 44 / $41.00


Best Bet: BROOKSTONE (1st)

Spot Play: ROCK MY WORLD (7th)

Race 1

(5) BROOKSTONE put in a solid effort for third money last out, so this gelding should be ready to put his best foot forward. (1) DRIVE EM COWBOY posted an even finish in his latest and is looking for his first win since 2014. (2) ART FOR ARTS SAKE has hit the board 3 out of 7 tries this year and the 2-hole should help his cause.

Race 2

(1) GALLANT SEELSTER was much the best against lesser company last out. Gelding moves up a bit and has the rail for another try at glory; very capable. (2) ROETHBLISSBERGER is on a roll scoring his fourth straight via the pocket route last time out. (4) FEELS LIKE MAGIC N was sent down the road by Buter to get the job done in his recent outing.

Race 3

(2) PASADENA STAR gets class relief in here after losing all chance when this gelding broke at the start last time around. Has good early trot and he has every right to top these with a favorable trip. (4) HIDDEN IDENTITY took the pocket trip up the cones to score his second straight victory last out. (6) COUSIN EDDIE should be the speed of the speed; ran out of gas in his last try.

Race 4

(6) CLARA BEA showed signs of life in her last start. Pacing mare knows how to get back into the winner's circle. With a well rated drive she can greet the cameraman for pictures. (1) AFTER ALIMONY retains the fence after her sharp second-place finish in her last trip. (5) SENTIMENTAL LADY If you throw out her last flop this mare is very capable of making some noise.

Race 5

(6) AMERICAN FILLY was on the rim and took charge at the 3/4 pole, but could not hold off Narcian Jewel for win honors last out. She appears to be rounding back to solid form, so having said that a fine-timed drive can get her back into the winner's circle. (1) MISS ALI MACH N had live cover and mowed them down for all the glory in her most recent outing. (2) BAD GIRL VEGAS could have a say if she can revert to her April 7th try.

Race 6

(6) SWISHNFLICK was facing open foes at The Meadows last time out and showed good speed. Makes her return to Yonkers and should find these to her liking. (1) CINCINNATI MISS moves back to the rail where she was sharp for third money last time around. (5) CAN DO fits well with these and Brennan has the assignment.

Race 7

(7) ROCK MY WORLD was parked out approaching the 3/4 marker and tired in stretch drive last out. Mare takes a slight drop in class; let's see if Sears can use different tactics to get this gal back to the winner's circle. (3) MY TALLIA IDEAL did not fire in her recent try but this looks to be a much better spot for her to contend. (5) SENORITA SANTANNA was very wide and lost all chance last out, but she is better than her last flop.

Race 8

(1) IDEAL CARVER was late on the scene to nail down the place spot in his last start. Now he moves to the fence and should show more speed against these; threat at his best. (3) MUSTANG MACH N was facing lesser company en route to an easy score last time around. (6) DALLENBACH HANOVER flashed speed outside but did not have the best of trips and tired in the stretch drive recently.

Race 9

(6) JONES BEACH posted two straight excellent scores in Pennsylvania and that makes this gelding quite tough in here. If he returns to his back class, the rest will have to settle for second money. (2) R CAAN was sharp in the pocket last time to just miss glory by a head. (1) COACH CAL put in a mild rally for the show spot last time out.

Race 10

(5) HAZMATT makes her return with old friends where she dominated at this level; the one to deny.(1) ELM GROVE INARUSH raced evenly and held on for the third spot last time out at Saratoga. (4) BROWN BRINNY left the pocket at the 3/4 pole and just held on for win honors in her last try.

Race 11

(7) A LITTLE MORE LOVE raced well against open foes at Saratoga last time out. Gelding seems to be in the best of form and good to see Mr. Brennan with the call; threat. (1) UNDERCOVER STRIKE twice moved to the front at the quarter pole and never looked back against better recently; main danger. (3) ZORGWIJK NOVA is knocking at the door based on her last two tries; watch out.

Race 12

Pompano invader (4) CAM FUNNY was in against some good open foes and did not disgrace herself. Makes her return to Yonkers and you have to go back to September 17th where this 6-year-old mare was a game second; worth a shot at a decent price. (5) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY was on the engine most of the way but she ran out of gas and had to settle for the placing last time around. (6) THE RIGHT MOVE has put in three nice efforts in a row and in her last one lost glory by just a length and a half.
