Yonkers: Thursday 7/25 Analysis


MEET STATS: 6 - 12 / $21.90     BEST BETS: 1 - 1 / $3.40


Best Bet: BLOWS ME AWAY (13th)

Spot Play: NY YANKEES (11th)

Race 1

(3) PRICELESS EDITION was short in his first start off the bench and got caught in a fast mile last time. This looks like a good spot for the Rene Allard trainee. (1) OUTA MY HEAD doesn't exactly face a strong field and should flash some speed in this spot. (6) FRITZIE ROCKET gets some serious class relief and could awaken.

Race 2

(1) CASH VALUE stayed flat and overcame a bad trip to score last time. I'll stick with him. (3) MR FENWICK returns to Yonkers at a reduced level and is certain to show early speed. (5) ELIN never got on track versus a decent field in the slop at the Meadowlands last time. Don't toss this mare too quickly.

Race 3

(1) BACCARAT STENA has yet to win in 16 starts this year but finds a tailor-made spot against a suspect group. (2) WESTERN EXPRESSION has enough speed to set up a decent trip. (5) THE LIFE BOAT has found his form versus lesser competition and seems sharp enough to compete tonight.

Race 4

(3) LOOK ANNIE HALL is another on the card tonight without a win this year but a good chance at getting on the scoreboard. Croghan trainee finds a very soft spot and should be handled aggressively. (5) MEMEME is fast off the gate and doesn't face much early competition. (6) STRATUS makes her second start since January and figures to be tighter this time.

Race 5

(6) JAILHOUSE FUNK has done his best work with Sears in the bike and he chose this guy over another logical contender. (4) KEYSTONE WILD CARD showed some early zip to find a seat and tired after coming uncovered following a slow half. I expect a good showing. (7) FAT BOY moves into a top barn and could perk up.

Race 6

(2) LINDEN BEAUTY should make the front easily and looks tough in this spot. (3) RACHEL CUHENO is sharp now and looms a serious threat. (4) PAY TRIBUTE has been popular at the claiming window and remains at that same level. (8) G G ROULETTE drops for a strong barn.

Race 7

(2) TIGER WILLIAMS took seven weeks off to freshen up and couldn't last on the engine. Let's give this guy another shot. (8) ARDENS STORM N has speed and should be able to use it with the early start in this 1 1/16 mile race. (3) ONLY ROCK N ROLL drops back down to the level of his recent claim.

Race 8

(2) IM JUST SPECIAL faced better when last seen here and comes out of some fast miles at Pocono. (7) LATIN LYRIC has been claimed six straight times and won five of her last seven; clear contender. (1) CHARLOTTES MAGGIE drops down in class and deserves a look.

Race 9

(1) LOVER BOY just missed last time at this level and shouldn't have to work as hard to take charge this time around. (5) CHANG DYNASTY has been off his game but should be close to the action. (2) DIABLO SEELSTER draws better; maybe.

Race 10

(2) MIKELEH rallied nicely from the back in her second start of the year and seems worth following. (5) ROCK N LOAD was in against tough company in the Open ranks at Saratoga and seems like a fit here. (4) DELIGHTFUL DIVA should have a shot with a clean trip.

Race 11

(1) N Y YANKEES hasn't been in this cheap in a long time. She is not in form but should turn things around. (2) APACH OF LUCK ships in sharp for Burke. (4) SIR LBS Z TAM drops down to a more realistic level.

Race 12

(2) RINGSIDE MUSCLE couldn't be any sharper and should be sitting no worse than second. (8) FIRE IN THE CELL moves into another live barn and has enough early speed to get involved. (6) LONG STORY SHORT needs some pace help but clearly has a chance.

Race 13

(4) BLOWS ME AWAY drops way down and adds Brennan. (7) ASSET MANAGEMENT was Bartlett's choice. Can he get her involved from post seven? (2) BOOTS PLACE draws better and was Sears' choice.
