BEST BETS: 45 - 92 / $171.00


Race 1

(1) AMERICAN ISLAND rallied strong to nail down the show spot recently, so it appears he heading in the right direction; the pick. (3) OUTRAGEOUS ART was on the lead most of the way but was caught in deep stretch last time out; player. (5) URBANA BAYAMA came outside to take home top prize in his last try; could he do it again? Not out of the question.

Race 2

(2) DEUCES FOR CHARITY came close to getting the job done last out. Pacing mare has a fondness for the Hilltop; so with that said, she can greet the cameraman for pictures if she minds her manners. (1) I DANCE U PRANCE was nailed for win honors last week and she retains the 2-hole; big threat. (5) MACS SECURE has scored her last two trips to the post and she must be respected in this event.

Race 3

(2) CHEYENNE OXE Veteran showed signs of life last time around and if he gets the right trip tonight the rest will have to settle for minor awards. (1) SAMS ESCAPE Very sharp in his last three tries so he must considered as a threat from the fence. (3) TYLER got the job done in his Pocono finale; can be right in the mix.

Race 4

(4) ITTY BITTY Sophomore filly has great success at Yonkers. She did not have enough gas in the tank from the pocket last week but this gal has been on the board 12 of 20 starts this year; gets the call. (5) MACY BLUE CHIP N was second best against lesser company last out; could have a say in the outcome. (2) ROCK ME GENTLY was evenly for fourth money recently but she needs to revert to her 10/10 start if she's going to have a chance in here; capable

Race 5

(4) JOYFUL GAME Mare seems to be knocking at the door based on her last two outings. Good to see trainer Dane calls on Bartlett in hopes of getting this seven year old miss right back into the winner's circle. (3) MORE THAN MANY was sitting a 3-hole trip and came down the lane for all the glory last out; dangerous again. (2) CHEYENNE ROBIN put in a sharp qualifier at the Meadowlands on 10/26; watch out.

Race 6

(2) DECLARATION OF WAR closed well to grab the show spot in his last try. Gelding is good enough to put his best foot forward, if given a favorable trip. (1) BOOGIEWOOGIEBRIAN was sent down the road in his latest for the victory; the one to deny. (5) ROLL ON will need a better trip in order for him to contend; possible.

Race 7

(3) HIGHVIEW CONALL N This might be a perfect spot for this pacing gelding to put his best foot forward; we shall see. (1) EXIT CAM moves to the fence and that might be the ticket for this gelding to be a serious threat. (6) DULL ROAR was sent down the road in his Pocono finale for all the glory; could have a say with this group.

Race 8

(3) AMERICAN FLIGHT catches a weak group and he does have a cozy post tonight; with a well judged drive, he could make tonight a winning one. (4) KINGS BARNS gets serious post relief and that might help his cause; maybe. (1) CHARGER BLUE CHIP should fare much better from the rail; not out of this.

Race 9

(1) BRALEY HANOVER was late on the scene to grab third money last week. Sophomore appears to be heading in the right direction, plus he receives the pole position; using. (3) MADIBA MAGIC N is back at Yonkers where he has done quite well; player. (5) SPORTY REDHOT came charging down the center of the track to grab the place spot at big odds last out; don't overlook.

Race 10

(4) MARVALOUS JET makes her second start at Yonkers and her last try was not that bad. So if the right trip comes her way she can greet the cameraman for pictures. (1) E L PEACEMAKER did flash speed but tired in the stretch run last time around; contender. (7) SHE SAID just missed the score by a neck last out; post hurts, but she is capable.

Race 11

(5) STYXIT TO EM N put in a late run for third money last time out. Five year old pacer appears to be in a perfect spot to get the job done with Bartlett at the helm. (3) RANSOM DEMAND came close to the victory, missing by only a nose; dangerous. (4) MAJOR WAR takes a drop in class and that might help his cause; we shall see.
