Yonkers: Thursday 9/8 Analysis


MEET STATS: 213 - 919 / $1,385.70

BEST BETS: 26 - 87 / $132.30

Best Bet: ROBIN J (6th)

Spot Play: SEVENATENINE (3rd)


Race 1

(2)  ANN HILL could not sustain her speed as the chalk last out but she is clearly fast enough to boss these fillies at her best. (3) QUEEN ELSA comes by way of Canada and has hit the board in her last four tries, including a down the road score last out. (4) ROLL BABY ROLL will need a favorable trip to contend with these; maybe.

Race 2

(1) HAVITURE WAY HONEY is knocking at the door based on her last four outings. Juvenile miss draws the rail and has every right to rate and mow them down. (2) YOURLIPSTOGODSEARS was sent down the road last out at Monticello for all the glory; main player. (4) OCEANIA posted an easy score upstate and that makes this gal a true contender.

Race 3

(5) SEVENATENINE showed signs of life in her latest, missing glory by a head. Two-year-old filly seems very capable of getting the job done for her first pari-mutuel score. (6) BESTGIRLFRIENDEVER was on the engine and never looked back for all the marbles at Monticello last out. (1) DELILAH DE VIE moves back to the fence where this gal was a sharp winner at Batavia two trips ago.    

Race 4

(8) NIPPY W HANOVER catches a weak group tonight, however she will have to overcome the 8-hole; very capable. (2) KAITLYN RAE flashed good speed in her qualifier last out, so she fits with these; threat. (6) AMERICAN ALIVE came outside to run them down for the victory last time out.

Race 5

(3) MILLWOOD FAITH N put in an even finish to hold on for the show spot in her last trip to the post. Good to see Brennan keeps the faith and with a well-judged drive she can get the job done. (1) CAM FUNNY retains the fence and did show some early foot last out. (8) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N just got up for win honors in her last start.

Race 6

(3) ROBIN J is on quite a roll scoring her fourth straight victory at Monticello last out. She has every right to keep on her winning ways if she minds her manners. (5) TEQUILA MONDAY is unbeaten in her only two trips to the post; main foe. (1) THAT'S HOW WE ROLL should grab a share from the fence.

Race 7

(3) CRUISINWITHMYBABY showed excellent speed and held on for all the glory last out. Five-year-old mare is in fine form, so two straight is clearly not out of the question. (7) SUMMER SNOW rallied strongly to nail down the victory recently. (2) BEAUTIFUL LADY was very game in her last trip but could not get to Canaco Star last week.

Race 8

(3) HIPNUMBERONE leaves the open ranks at Saratoga and finds a softer spot tonight. Mare might show speed against these and boss them at her best. (5) HAPPILY EVER AFTER closed well to grab the show spot in her last try. (2) APRICOT SOUR posted a sharp victory at Philly last out and should fare well from the 2-hole.

Race 9

(1) PAPPYS PAL gets serious post relief and this gelding has good early speed; gets the call for the Brennan/Burke team. (2) TRACK MASTER D was sent down the road last out for all the glory; big threat again. (3) TOPCORNERTERROR will need a better trip than in his last try; we shall see.

Race 10

(6) ROCK OUT had some trouble in his last start but did manage to hold on for fourth money. Gelding could put in a better effort with a well-judged drive from MacDonald. (7) PAMS LEGACY has wheeled off two straight victories; post hurts tonight but he is very capable. (1) ROETHBLISSBERGER moves down in class and has the fence; not out of this.

Race 11

(3) ZORGWIJK NOVA got the job done via the pocket route last time around. Mare is very sharp, fit and ready to take another. (6) MIDNITE CRAZE was second best against open foes at Plainridge last out and figures to contend in here with Sears at the helm. (1) YANKEE PUZZLE came up with an easy victory against lesser company last out. Now she moves up the ladder but could make some noise from the fence.

Race 12

(4) ARIELLE LYNN posted a sharp victory last out and this mare could be poised to boss these for her second straight score. (3) I DO IT MYSELF took charge at the three quarter pole and was nailed for win honors by Summer Snow last out; dangerous. (6) FROST DAMAGE BLUES put in a nice run last time around to lose glory by a half-length; watch out.
