Yonkers: Tuesday 2/9 Analysis


MEET STATS: 42 - 150 / $282.70

BEST BETS: 3 - 12 / $14.60

Best Bet: DIAMOND JOE (2nd)

Spot Play: KIPPENBERGER N (6th)

Race 1

(2) OPEN WATER got the job done down the road at Freehold last out; form seems to be in good order for this gelding to take another. (1) SPORTING THE LOOK led every step of the way to hold off Arthur for win honors recently. (3) BATTLE CALL took the pocket route on his way to victory last time around.

Race 2

(4) DIAMOND JOE flashed early trot but could not keep going forward last time out; hopefully he will receive a much better trip and take home top prize. (2) PINE TAB should benefit with the move to the 2-hole. (3) KASCARA ROSA Trotting miss did not race badly in her latest at the Meadowlands.

Race 3

(5) PRINCE ASTON Two sharp efforts at the Hilltop including a lifetime mark on January 12th; all systems go for his second score of the year. (3) UF HARDER HANOVER came very wide to mow most of these down for all the glory last out. (4) FULL TIME GIG put in an even run to take home fourth money in his most recent trip.

Race 4

(2) COUSIN EDDIE seems to have a fondness for Yonkers including stopping the clock in 1:58 three trips ago; capable of being the boss over these down the road. (4) STAR STUDDED CAST has hit the board in his last four tries. (8) MEADOWVIEW ARNY was sharp for the placing last time around, but will have to contend from the 8-hole today.

Race 5

(7) THIS IS WYATT Gelding has good speed and should overcome the outside slot with clear sailing; gets the call. (3) BIG BAMBU rallied strongly to nail down the second spot in his last try. (2) GLASS PRINCE put in a good rally for the placing recently.

Race 6

(8) KIPPENBERGER N showed signs of life in his last start; gets a tough post but with a favorable trip, he could make tonight a winning one; possible. (5) CASTLE FLIGHT just missed the score by only a length and a half in his Jersey finale. (2) LIGHTNING RAIDER N 11-year-old gets serious post relief and that might help his cause.

Race 7

(2) COME ON RIDGE was charging down the lane to get up for the victory and stop the clock in 1:53 4/5 in his last trip to the post; figures to get another good trip so two straight is not out of the question. (1) INTHEPERFECTSTORM has been very game in his last three tries. (4) ZIGGYS SKY Consistent gelding took the pocket route on his way to victory recently.

Race 8

(7) ROETHBLISSBERGER had to be used up in the early stages, so that compromised his chances of the score last out; very capable of getting a much better trip and at his best, he can get the job done. (3) SHARK FANTASY was late on the scene to miss the score by only a length and a half in his most recent outing. (1) QUICK ART Gelding seems to be coming around with a fine effort at Freehold last out.

Race 9

(3) LAWGIVER HANOVER is heading in the right direction with a very game second place finish last time out; today can be a winning one with a fine-timed drive from Brennan. (6) COPPER COAST A fits with these and needs to revert to his January 2nd trip at Freehold to contend with these. (4) SIGN TO INVERELL A showed life in his latest missing the victory by a length and a half.

Race 10

(2) SHANE ADAM was very wide and charged down the center of the track to lose the victory by 3/4's of a length at the Big M last time around; has a score here on December 1st so with that said, he is very capable of getting the job done. (1) BILLABONG BEACH is much better than his last try and he could fare well from the fence. (3) HEAVEN ROCKS moves inside and gelding flashed speed two trips ago.

Race 11

(2) EVERY INTENTION comes by way of Canada with excellent speed and this might be a perfect spot for this gelding to top these wire to window; we shall see. (8) GO COLLECT N Sharp for win honors in his last try but will have to grind it out from the 8-hole to make it two in a row. (1) WILD AGAIN Easy victory from the far outside slot last time out.

Race 12

(1) GO DADDY GO makes his second start at the Hilltop and his qualifier at the Meadowlands on January 8th was super; the rail slot should be a perfect fit for this gelding to get the job done at his best. (8) JT Speedy pacer can handle the 8-hole and good to see Brennan keeps the faith. (4) ABERDEEN HANOVER put in a mild rally for the place spot last out.
