Yonkers: Thursday 9/17 Analysis


MEET STATS: 183 - 867 / $1,283.40  BEST BETS: 20 - 73 / $95.20

Best Bet: LITTLE MERMAID N (4th)

Spot Play: JC KINGDOM (7th)


Race 1

(5) WHOLLY LOUY showed speed in his last two; has every right to put it all together against these. (2) BIG BAD BOSSMAN posted an easy score at this level last out; likely favorite. (4) TREND SPOTTER went down the road two starts back; could have a say in the outcome.

Race 2

(4) JUST SAYIN was late on the scene to nail down the place spot last time around. Based on her last two trips she is ready to put her best foot forward. (2) PITA charged down the lane to bring home all the bacon last out; threat again. (8) MY CAROLINE flashed good speed in her last two; post hurts but she is very capable.

Race 3

(3) BELLA NOCHE is 0 for 20 this year, however, in her last try she did show speed. With a fine-timed drive from Holland this mare can get back into the swing of things. (4) CAM FUNNY put in a mild bid for the show spot last week; contender. (7) CAMS MACHARENA fits well in here and can't be counted out of this.

Race 4

(3) LITTLE MERMAID N 13-year-old mare seems to have a fondness for the $12.5 claiming ranks. She posted a sharp victory last week and two straight is clearly not out of the question. (6) CASE SOLVED has hit the board in her last 6 starts; big threat. (2) NUTMEGS DESIRE has tactical speed and should make some noise in the final stretch drive.

Race 5

(3) LEGAL LITIGATOR put in an even finish in his last trip. This gelding can get the job done with a return to his August 13th start. (2) OUTA MY HEAD was nailed for win honors at odds-on recently; main danger. (1) BETTOR DESIGN stays on the fence and will need a better trip to contend; maybe.

Race 6

After a brief stay at the Meadows, (3) ELM GROVE INARUSH returns to Yonkers where she just missed the victory by only a half-length; ready for action. (2) DEREK DELIGHT has good early zip and Brennan stays; dangerous. (1) LET HER ROCK gets class relief and that should help her cause; watch out.

Race 7

(5) JC KINGDOM is much better than his September 3rd start. The gelding has good speed and with a favorable trip, he can take this at his best. (1) WHITE MOUNTAIN TOP comes by way of Pocono and this seems to be a perfect spot for him to contend. (3) COACH CAL was sharp at Saratoga in his last four tries; not out of this.

Race 8

(5) KIMS DAY has been on the board in 14 of 27 trips this year; made August 20th a winning one down the road; capable. (1) BAZOOKA TERROR should be right there from the rail slot with a favorable trip. (2) ROYAL KNOCKOUT showed good speed at Philly last out; beware.

Race 9

(1) IDEAL A LITTLE is a consistent pacing mare that got the job done in her latest. You can't knock her solid form this year, so the repeat is not out of the question. (5) DENYITTOTHEEND might have been used up in the early stages last out and is better than that effort; player. (2) MIKELEH got beat by Ideal A Little last week but she has a better post to turn the tables; maybe.

Race 10

(5) LUCKY MCTRUCKY flashed good speed in his return to Yonkers. With a fine-timed drive from MacDonald this guy can be the boss over these. (3) DIAMOND COWBOY faced open foes at Plainridge last time out; was second best here on May 7 and Sears is back in the bike; big threat. (1) ABBEYLARA should have a say from the fence.

Race 11

(3) MC DYNAMITE put in a even finish last time around. He has tactical speed and could rate and score over this group; we shall see. (4) FITZS Z TAM has good early pace and needs to save some gas in the tank to be a factor; capable. (6) IM BLUE TOO was second best on August 27th and could be right in the mix.

Race 12

(4) SIR LEHIGH Z TAM has put in two nice efforts and she has every right to mow them down when it counts in the final stretch run. (3) KAITLYN RAE was quite good in her last trip to the post grabbing the second money; main danger. Based on her last two, (1) EYRE HOSTESS N is knocking at the door; beware from the rail slot.
