Yonkers: Tuesday 3/10 Analysis


MEET STATS: 58 - 178 / $289.30  BEST BETS: 8 - 15 / $28.20

Best Bet: FORT KNOX (2nd)

Spot Play: FITNESS CRAZE (11th)


Race 1

(3) ROCKIN ROBERT drops in class for the fourth consecutive week and he hasn't been awful recently; weak call in the opener. (2) GIDDY UP BINKS didn't fire enough from the pocket last week but he should be close up again. (1) MACHIN MONEY adds Sears and draws best.

Race 2

(1) FORT KNOX exploded home from nowhere in his local debut and everything from these California connections have been super; top call. (4) BETTOREVER has raced well in three efforts at The Meadowlands since joining the Bamond barn. (2) COMPANY MAN faltered in the Sonsam final at The Big M but he was a stakes winner there in January.

Race 3

(1) VEGAS ROCKS gets a free ride at the same level where he's taken two straight and he lands the rail again; looks like pretty logical selecting. (5) WELL SAID STRIDE was bet heavily into the top choice last out but broke. (3) MISTER SKITTER was overmatched on the big track; he can find these more to his liking.

Race 4

(7) ROGER MACH EM shipped from Cal Expo for Jennifer Sabot and much like all his stablemates he was awesome; down the road again. (2) REDISCOVERY is another of many Meadowlands shippers with stakes experience there and this one made some money in the Sonsam. (3) SIR SAM'S Z TAM kept up well in his seasonal debut for Lachance.

Race 5

(7) CRANK IT UP has been racing very well at Northfield for trainer/driver Mike Dowdall and now he picks up Dube for his local debut; worth a look at a decent price. (3) JK PATRIOT arrives with a nice resume for Toscano and with Tetrick driving he'll attract all the attention. (1) VICTORY AT LAST goes third-time in the Burke barn, has speed, the rail and Brennan driving.

Race 6

(2) MAJOR UPTREND has been a highly regarded horse in this young season for Burke and he was a big second in the Sonsam final. Assuming he handles the Yonkers surface he'll jog here. (1) YS LOTUS raced very well to be second best in his debut for Allard. (6) STRATOCASTER was aimed too high in his forst local start; worth using underneath for the streaking Tyler Buter.

Race 7

(1) CLASSIC ART has gone big efforts in his last two since joining the Rohr barn and Bartlett can trip out from this spot. (3) VANCE BAYAMA will be heading to front with Dube; clearly he can take these the distance. (6) WHAT I BELIEVE is another big track shipper who's been a fringe player recently; I'm sure Brennan will try to handle him aggressively.

Race 8

I've never been a fan of (8) LOOKING HANOVER but he appears to have too much class for these. Overcoming the outside posts in these added-distance events seems easier than I thought it would be. (3) WELL CONNECTED KID debuts for new connections and has been racing well. (4) BLOOMFIELDCANTIFLY debuts for DiDomenico and has Tetrick listed to drive.

Race 9

(8) MACK'S GOLD BAND won't have it as easy this week but the Allard trainee is a threat to go all the way. (3) MOVEMENT acclimated nicely last week just missing to the top choice and he is capable of being even better today. (12) SILVER CREDIT arrives from Freehold where she was a solid winner last out at odds-on.

Race 10

(9) MYATTITUDEURPROBLM blew away a cheaper field last week at Monticello and she arrives locally to face a very suspect group today; why not? (10) TAXED TO THE MAX looks to be steadily improving for Team Miller and I suspect he'll attract plenty of attention at the windows. (6) PERFECT TWENTY ONE has ability when he stays trotting; hold your breath early if you wager on him.

Race 11

(5) FITNESS CRAZE ships in off a sharp win at Dover and these connections have had success here. (4) WESTERN CREDIT picked up a live trip and was a sharp winner first out for these new connections; trotter is certainly capable of repeating. (2) STONEBRIDGE IDOL qualified nicely and could have more to offer.

Race 12

(5) SHE GLIDES arrives from Cal Expo for Sabot and as previously mentioned everything she is sending out is razor-sharp. (10) PASSING JETTA also hails from sharp connections and she is likely facing lesser arriving from The Meadowlands. (6) VEGLIANTINO did win two in a row when seen here in January.
