Yonkers: Tuesday 3/20 Analysis


MEET STATS: 78 - 299 / $601.40

Best Bet: MILITARY STRATCOM (11th)      Spot Play: FAT MANS ALLEY (4th)

Race 1

(5) UPFRONT COUNTRYBOY came here from Jersey and got the job done last time out. Sophomore has found a home at the Hilltop and a repeat effort is not out of the cards. (7) YEP Gelding is on fire capturing his third straight victory. (1) SOUTHWIND CHASE best lesser company at Monti last week.

Race 2

(1) MONTANACHAMPIONNE gets serious post relief and if this trotting miss can return to her Feb. 9 start, it can be game over for the rest. (6) CC MISTER C Strong factor if he could work out a good trip. (3) S F CIRO Gelding has speed to contend with these.

Race 3

(4) CAM B ZIPPER Gelding is on a roll scoring his second straight victory. Pilot Bartlett gets the return call and the hat-trick is not out of the question. (1) GREAT DRAGON just got up for win honors recently. (2) ROCK N ROLL JET was very game for the place spot in his last one.

Race 4

(3) FAT MANS ALLEY put in a mild rally in his last start. Now this gelding moves gets post relief and with a little luck, four-year-old can mow them down. (1) UPFRONT ELLIJAY ED got the job done for his second straight score. (4) BRADEN Easy score in his recent effort and is the likely favorite.

Race 5

(4) BREWING MASTER Trotting gelding is knocking at the door and is very capable of blowing these away with MacDonald at the helm. (5) CONWAY CRUISER went down the road for win honors. (2) CINDERELLA MAN should fare well with the class relief.

Race 6

(3) AVENUE HANOVER Down the road for win honors last week and this pacer has every right to make it two in a row. (2) ALEXPANDERTHEGREAT just got up for the victory in his last try. (1) ONE ON EACH LAP could have a say in this event.

Race 7

(3) WAIVER HANOVER has good tactical speed. Four-year-old can take this at his best with Brennan on the return call. (5) CRUZNWITHDABIGDOG Wire-to-wire score last time out makes him a contender. (1) FOX VALLEY RENOIR gets post relief.

Race 8

(6) CHINA KING Pacing gelding closed strongly for the place spot last time around. With a melt-down of the early leaders, this guy can mow them down. (8) STONEBRIDGE ROCKET has fine speed and he could handle the eight hole. (7) CLASSIC CALL Gelding is consistent.

Race 9

(4) LISTOWEL raced gamely in his last start. Gelding can rate and pounce over these at best. (6) WOODMERE ULTIMATE has good speed and his recent try is an indication he is knocking at the door. (2) SHOWDOWN AT SUN UP has hit the board in his last four trips.

Race 10

(4) MAGNUS DEO put in a mild rally in his last trip to the post. Gelding can blow these out of the water if the early pacesetters fall apart. (2) KID CRUISER showed some life in his last try. (6) MY TIME HANOVER could land a share.

Race 11

(1) MILITARY STRATCOM What else can you say about this seven-year-old gelding? Clearly the one to deny. (5) CYCLONE CULLY N looks to be the best of the rest. (3) ANDY BARAN completes the trifecta.

Race 12

(5) KID CARSON First time Pena is a major plus for this six-year-old pacer. With a perfect trip, this guy can take these to task down the stretch for win honors. (7) PICTONIAN PRIDE has good late punch to be a factor in here. (4) TAYLORLANE CRUISER has hit the board in his last three starts.
