Yonkers: Tuesday 11/26 Analysis


Race 5 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Five Pool

Best Bet: WHOLLY LOUY (1st)

Spot Play: FUDGE (7th)

Race 1

(2) WHOLLY LOUY got parked in last and finished up the track. Prior was wire to wire. Bet well both times, he could pull off the minor upset on best. (1) SEMALU EXPRESS  has speed enough to stay close throughout but has not displayed the stretch determination one likes to plop the money on. (4) BEST DREAM SEEKER finished well in last and would be no shocker.

Race 2

(3) CELEBRITY BOMBAY gets the nod with Bartlett to get off the losing streak. (4) IVANA HANOVER has to be the one to fear in the lane. (2) WHATA HUSTLER will improve leaving from the inside.

Race 3

(7) DRAGON RIDGE will not be 20-1 this time out but is impossible to go past in current form. (1) TYS A BIG STAR has speed and the pole and just missed this level in last. (2) ECKSTROM should sit in and suck along for a fair share this evening.

Race 4

(6) SCRATCH OFF qualified well two back and was tightened with off the pace finish in last. There was a time when speed in a qualifier followed by a late closing first start was a mortal lock in next but that was then.... (1) BEAUTIFUL WINDSONG seeks third straight and winning streaks are tough to look past. (3) ONE MORE KID should be right there in the lane and hold for a piece.

Race 5

(1) KEYSTONE ISABELLA will go down the road as far as she can but may have to ward off a middle half challenge. (2) FIFTY SHADES sits, stalks, waits, pounces and might turn the tables on the speed if the front end duel develops. (4) HOWES MAGIC seems to have forgotten how to lose and will be hard pressed to lose if he gets to the top but the top one should not give up the lead without a fight.

Race 6

(7) SWEET WATER JACK gets a shaky vote in competitive race but the price might be worth a quid or two. (4) FAIRYTALE PRINCE has been tightened twice off the front stepping front end qualifier win and could get it done. (3) ALLCARDSALLTHETIME was parked too long in last and tired.

Race 7

(3) FUDGE won as favorite two back, toured the track in last and he will pull off the mild upset this evening. (1) DANCING IN TERROR has the rail and sucks along with a possibility of finishing the exacta. (3) PRONOLOGY Z TAM has late speed and would add a bit of exotica to the exotics if he gets the right trip.

Race 8

(5) CITY HALL ships in off some encouraging efforts and could be a decent price if Dube hits the pedal at the right time. (6) K LEES SHAKENBAKE has won last two and gets noticed. (4) ONE WARRAWEE seems to be picking up the mileage points this year and always stays close enough to be a late threat for a share.

Race 9

(3) RIVER RUN FOR RYAN moves in enough after two mild closing trips from the outside and should close down the speed. (2) CHARGER BLUE CHIP has shown enough last few to indicate his chances are quite good on best. (4) SAWBUCK HANOVER wired the field in last racing at Freehold and has shown gate speed from post 8 at Yonkers in the past (but did falter).

Race 10

(3) TRIP HANOVER has been kicking butt with Brennan in the bike. Garcia-Herrera trainee switches to Bartlett tonight but should continue his dominance. (2) GAVINS DESIGNER has speed and knows how to win but has caught a few times. (1) A LIST has the rail, sits in and picks up the rest.

Race 11

(2) MACHTOTHEMOON gets nervous vote with Dube. (1) ER ROOM could get second racing from pole in well-matched field. (3) ART OF TEMPTATION has hung with the prize on the line too often to be picked on top but always seems to be close enough to hang.

Race 12

(1) PAN OF OUTSIDERS moves in and gets the nod from the rail after he was a beaten favorite two back. (3) COLBYS COMET was a scratched sick in last but has gone well from the inside.  (4) MAJOR MERLO has been close in all recent and keeps earning good money without winning.
