Yonkers: Thursday 9/10 Analysis


MEET STATS: 43 - 106 / $200.10  BEST BETS: 5 - 9 / $17.60

Best Bet: GRACE SEELSTER (7th)

Spot Play: LA FIESTA (12th)


Race 1

(3) BIG BAD BOSSMAN got hung out last time and has been stuck in post eight for three straight starts. He should easily make the front this week and has a big chance. (1) GIACOMETTI is another that should enjoy the better post; good trip chance. (7) JETTY wired the field in his last start at this level. If he makes the front, watch out.

Race 2

(4) PRIVATE PERFORMANC paced home strong in her first start for Robinson while just missing. Let's stick with her and expect an even better effort. (2) CASE SOLVED finally got over the top last time; threat for top barn. (1) EAGLE MOLLY put up a big middle half for the score to close out August; clear player.

Race 3

(2) BIJOU THEATER makes his first start for the high percentage Banca barn and gets a drop in class as well; logical choice. (4) ICED OUT gets a trainer and driver change. Mare is capable of showing more. (1) SADIES PLACE doesn't win very often anymore but knows how to get into the bottom exotic spots.

Race 4

(3) LITTLE MERMAID N was a strange claim by the Allard barn last out. You don't see many 13-year-olds get plucked out of a bottom-level claimer. That aside, this is a major barn change that could produce results. (2) NUTMEGS DESIRE has been knocking on the door and seems like the main threat. (6) MY CAROLINE is in form now.

Race 5

(3) BELLA NOCHE has yet to pick up a win in 19 starts this year, but this is really a good spot for her and I'm expecting an aggressive steer. (5) MADDIE D moves into a new barn and adds Brian Sears. I'm guessing she'll be sent off lower than those 15-1 early odds. (4) GET THE LOOK was better in her second start for this barn.

Race 6

(2) GODDESSS ROSA comes out of a race that went in 1:51 1/5 where she did all the work. This race could go four seconds slower. (4) DENYITTOTHEEND has early speed and form. (6) FRISKIES ANGEL hasn't made back a cent since the claim back in May. She got caught in a fast mile last time; using her as a saver.

Race 7

(1) GRACE SEELSTER has won her last three starts when racing for Rene Allard. If she comes close to her most recent effort, she wins again. (3) ABS TO ENVY was a bit short after missing a few months of action; capable of more. (2) EYRE HOSTESS N should save ground and get a nice chunk.

Race 8

(1) GEORGE JETTISON finds a great spot in his debut for this barn. He should come away no worse than the pocket and have every opportunity to win. (6) P L FIGHTER lacked a late kick in his two tries for this stable, but does add top driver Jason Bartlett. (4) BABES I SCOOT finally gets a better post to work with. (5) REPORT FOR DUTY N is usually good for a bottom piece of the exotics.

Race 9

(6) ALL FIRED UP showed some late pace in his first start for the new barn and seems capable of upsetting with a clean trip. (4) FITZS Z TAM comes off a huge mile and automatically warrants attention. (5) ROCKY MOUNTAIN GUY was facing some fast foes at Pocono, but hasn't won here since 2013.

Race 10

(3) LICULIA A raced well in her first North American start and should be even better tonight. (2) SOLID QUEEN should be able to leave around the rail horse and be a major player. (6) LET HER ROCK didn't exactly have a clean trip last time; upset chance.

Race 11

(5) NARCIAN JEWEL as back at Yonkers at a reduced level and should perk up for a good barn. (6) HEART MAJOR takes on her elders but has proven high speed in her arsenal. (1) KIMS DAY & (2) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC are both in good form and have drawn well.

Race 12

(5) LA FIESTA has been racing against better in Pennsylvania and now moves into a good barn; very dangerous. (1) KAITLYN RAE draws best and moves into the Allard barn. (4) JUSTHAVENTMETUYET was used hard and kept finding more a week ago. (2) FASHION MYSTERY would be no surprise.
