Yonkers: Tuesday 3/15 Analysis


MEET STATS: 68 - 213 / $386.50

BEST BETS: 7 - 18 / $26.00

Best Bet: P L INDYANACA (9th)

Spot Play: BB’S HARLEY (2nd)

Race 1

(6) QUICK FUN N has raced very well since arriving from overseas and he has a slight post edge on main rival (7) RODEO ROMEO. The latter has loads of talent and was an easy well-rated winner in round one; the one to beat despite the outside post. (4) WESTERN PIONEER has Bartlett in the bike again and can be considered underneath.

Race 2

(3) BB'S HARLEY didn't race that badly last week after getting hung to dry the week prior; I assume the connections wouldn't send this horse cross-country if there wasn't some talent there. (1) AM MAGIC MAN draws best and certainly is logical from this spot. (2) WAR N MUNN returned from a very successful trip to Woodbine, where he swept the Count B series and he was forced uncovered into a 1/9 winner last week.

Race 3

(3) WAYWARD SON returns locally from The Meadowlands, where he was victimized by some tough trips; Blumenfeld barn is going well now. (1) SER JON also arrives from the big track and was second best in his last two. (2) ANTAR PHIL raced pretty well last week at a big price; consider him here with the improved post.

Race 4

(2) SOME POWER connected upon arrival for the Banca barn and is inside what he needs to beat today. (4) TEAM CAPTAIN has figured it out in his last two for the O'Sullivan barn, which is clicking at 50% this year. (5) J T will be on the move early for Brennan/Burke.

Race 5

(5) SPORTS BETTOR has been solid for these connections and he showed some versatility last week by grinding on the rim; I don't know what's up with the new trainer listed but I assume the routine will be the same. (1) QUALITY CLOSER was third best last week, now draws best and will look to protect position. (2) SHANE ADAM is capable on his best day.

Race 6

(6) TONI'S AFFECTION was nipped on the wire last week by the pocket sitter in his debut for the Vandevort barn; this doesn't look like the toughest division here and he can come out on top with a smooth trip. (2) SPEAKING OUT gets needed post relief and could show more. (1) STEVE SAID will be close up throughout from this spot.

Race 7

(3) COVERT OPERATIVE took all the money but didn't fire last week, his second start since joining the Allard barn. I would expect better today. (2) NORTHERN OBSESSION was second best to the strong winner last out, finishing in front of the top choice. These two seem to stick out here. (10) MASSIVE LIGHTNING has Bartlett driving again and seems capable of better.

Race 8

(1) LE TISSIER returns locally and gets Sears back in the sulky; gelding has a big chance with a stalking trip. (9) DOMINUS HANOVER looks for four in a row and is clearly the one to beat; will the second tier prove tricky today? (6) GABE THE BEAR DEAN has talent for the Schnittker barn and did rally decently last out at a big price.

Race 9

(1) P L INDYANACA toured the track from the eight hole last week upon shipping in and joining the Banca barn; expect completely different results today from the rail. (7) BETTER TO BE LUCKY was racing okay when last seen locally and he picks up Sears today. (6) NED PEPPER broke at 1/9 in his debut for the Beckwith barn; price will be much better now.

Race 10

(6) ALMAFI COAST raced very well to be second best right off the bench and the Garcia-Herrera trainee should only be better today. (4) FLIRTING DUEZY was a winner four back at this level. (3) DIVINATION picks up Mark Macdonald in the sulky, who has been driving well recently; use underneath.

Race 11

(4) ASHLAKE jogged three back at this level and with Tyler Buter driving; the veteran may offer some value in this competitive field. (2) KASCARA ROSA has plenty of talent but clearly needs to stay trotting. (9) DRIVING MISS CRAZY ships in from The Meadowlands off a good try where she just missed.

Race 12

(6) HEADSUP YANKEE broke leaving last out but his prior start was a pocket-rocket win; Bartlett's choice can be forwardly placed again. (4) MARTINI HANOVER qualified effectively and looks best but this one has burned money in the past. (2) BATTLE CALL seems capable of holding off the rest from this spot.
