Yonkers: Thursday 7/28 Analysis


MEET STATS: 180 - 762 / $1,151.80

BEST BETS: 22 - 74 / $113.50

Best Bet: SO BAD IM GOOD (8th)



Race 1

(4) JC KINGDOM comes off two seconds in a row, which is an indication he's ready to put his best foot forward. (6) FRATERNITY closed down the center of the track to get the job done last out. (1) BIG BAMBU flashed speed in his Tioga finale and the rail could help his cause.

Race 2

(6) MY IDEAL HANOVER might have been used up in the early stages last time out. Pacing mare can take this with a relaxing trip. (7) NIPPY W HANOVER scored in her last two outings; post hurts but she is very capable. (5) AMERICAN ALIVE is knocking at the door based on her last two tries.

Race 3

(5) CRUISINWITHMYBABY led most of the way but was caught in deep stretch by Nippy W Hanover last week. Mare will try to atone for that lost for team Sears/Allard. (4) MISS MACHQUEEN put in a mild rally for show honors last time out. (2) FOX VALLEY HERMIA showed good speed at Philly recently and could have a say in the outcome.

Race 4

(2) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY leaves the 8-hole for a cozy post. Clearly she has good early zip and now Bartlett has the assignment; the pick. (5) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N got the job done via the pocket last time out; threat again. (3) I DO IT MYSELF was sent down the road in her last trip for all the glory.

Race 5

(4) CAROBBEAN PACETRY takes a drop in class and the move to the 4-hole could have this pacing mare greet the cameraman for pictures tonight. (2) CLARA BEA closed strongly to lose glory by only a length; factor. (1) THE RIGHT MOVE moved too early for the lead at the half mile pole and tired badly in the stretch drive last time.

Race 6

(2) HER OWN LAND gets class and post relief. The good news is this pacing mare knows how to get the job done and a favorable trip can make it happen. (3) SUMMER SNOW raced evenly in her last trip to grab fourth money; main danger. (6) CHEYENNE ROBIN should appreciate the drop in class; not out of this.

Race 7

(4) URBANITE HANOVER has put in two sharp efforts in a row at the Meadowlands. Gelding moves his trade to Yonkers and good to see Bartlett at the controls; big factor. (1) CROMBIE A was dull at Pocono last out but is back at the hilltop where he got the job done on July 7th. (2) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS is knocking at the door based on his last three outings; watch out.

Race 8

(4) SO BAD IM GOOD showed signs of life in his last try and this gelding has hit the board in 6 of 12 trips to the post. Now trainer Bamond calls on Mr. Brennan to get this pacing gelding back to the winner's circle. (5) SHADIOS is a speedy gelding that ran out of gas in his last start. He will try to take these all the way again; maybe. (3) ELRAMA N posted an easy victory down the road against lesser company last out.

Race 9

(2) INTREPID HALL takes a slight drop in class and leaves the 7-hole. Gelding figures to get a much better trip and with a return to his July 12th trip, it could be game over for the rest. (1) OHOKA TEXAS N has tactical speed and figures to be right in the mix. (8) PAMS LEGACY moves down the scale but will have to make some noise from the 8-hole; possible.

Race 10

(1) COBBLE BEACH posted an even finish in his last try and now this 6-year-old draws the fence and Bartlett is back in the sulky. They both teamed up for a wire to window score two starts ago; gets the call. (4) LUCKY MCTRUCKY should be right in the mix based on his last two starts. (7) REAL FLIGHT has wheeled off three scores in a row. Post hurts but the four-peat is not out of the question.

Race 11

(1) ON THE PODIUM poured it on turning for home en route to an easy victory last time out. Now the trotting gelding moves up in class but the good news is the 7-year-old draws the fence; ready for the double score. (2) FORTUNISTA was very game in her last start but could not get to the winner, Soul Train; main danger. (3) AUSPICIOUS HANOVER showed good speed in his Pocono finale and could move forward off that effort; maybe.

Race 12

(1) VILLAGE JESSICA moves to the rail and clearly has fine speed. In her last trip to the post she missed glory by only a neck. She can boss these at her best. (2) DEUCES FOR CHARITY rallied strongly to lose win honors by only 3/4 length; threat. (3) ROCKAROUND SUE gets class relief and that might help her cause; we shall see.
