Yonkers: Tuesday 3/31 Analysis


MEET STATS: 93 - 273 / $466.90  BEST BETS: 12 - 23 / $41.60

Best Bet: VEGLIANTINO (2nd)

Spot Play: MAKES ME STUPID (4th)


Race 1

(1) WACO BRUISER has been racing much better of late, including last out in a seemingly unnecessary qualifier; he should be in line for a live trip from this spot. (3) BULLSEYE was overmatched in the Sagamore but was a winner at this level three back. (5) ARDIE B SPEED raced well in his first start off the shelf.

Race 2

(3) VEGLIANTINO hasn't put in a bad effort in ages and she clearly looks like the one to beat. (6) MUSCLESPRINCTONIAN looks for two straight and three of four for the live Buter barn. (1) ADRENALIN JUNKIE needs to stay flat, but the ability is there.

Race 3

(4) DINNER GUEST had a tough trip to overcome last out and understandably gave way; he drops in class today right into the winning spot. (2) CEE PEE PANIC raced willingly over at Pocono, his first seasonal start. Note he was facing better when seen here last year. (3) CARMENS BEST drops off a good effort and he should be right there late.

Race 4

(3) MAKES ME STUPID had good speed at both ends two back then was stuck with a second-tier getaway up at Saratoga; with nose on gate today he should head to the front. (6) ROCK FAME beat the top choice two back then was too far back to threaten last week; Dube is back aboard. (8) CARRACCI HANOVER may be done in by the eight hole; will Lachance be aggressive early?

Race 5

(4) DONT TELL WAYNE has been razor-sharp in three seasonal efforts and he deserves a serious look at what could be the best price of the contenders. (2) BLACKTREE has speed and a better draw; threat to go all the way. (3) COMPANY MAN stopped on the lead for no apparent reason last week; prior efforts were decent.

Race 6

(5) BETTOREVER has looked super in the series so far for the Bamond barn, including last week's big eight hole win; he lands a decent enough post here and deserves top billing in a competitive Sagamore final. (2A) FORT KNOX is one half of a solid entry from Sabot but they both draw poorly; well-bred horse has the ability to overcome the eight hole. (3) REDISCOVERY draws best for Brennan/Burke and clearly is a contender.

Race 7

(10) LENNY MAC has been good in recent efforts, including an off the pace rally last out; she's sharp and is capable with a trip. (12) KEENAN drops in class but with little current form. (8) STONEBRIDGE IDOL returns at a reduced level off a blowout win and he'll be a price from this post.

Race 8

(2) MOVEMENT broke before the start last out and obviously lost all chance; prior efforts were good and she fits well with this kind. (11) MARQUESAS is also a good fit at this basement level and Tetrick drives for DiDomenico. (12) SUN OF A VICTORY lasted gamely for a share of the top prize after cutting the mile last out; it will be tough hitting the lead from this second tier start, however.

Race 9

(8) LADY CATERINA went evenly at Pocono in her first trip of the season, obviously a needed start. Filly has stakes experience and should be leaving hard for her best chance. (4) BATTLE MAGE is another filly making her seasonal debut off a decent morning effort. (6) NUTMEGS DANCER was well meant in his last local appearance but hung late. He followed that up with a sharp win at Pocono; big threat.

Race 10

(4) ORANGE BIGI tried to brush last week but the driver seemed to get a bit indecisive and she broke. Veteran gets Brennan in the bike today. (10) SCHLIM SCHLAMMA has been making live moves of late and she always offers a price. (3) ROYAL MALINDA drops in class and will likely be part of the early pace.

Race 11

(3) FITNESS CRAZE gave way pretty badly last out but these connections have been sharp with their trotters and I like having Dube in the bike. (4) WINWOOD SCOUT has won four in a row, all for different barns. Can he be alive for five? (5) CANBEC FRIDOLIN was good once upon a time and he does debut for new connections which could perk him up.

Race 12

(3) SANDESTIN HANOVER really has done little wrong in his three starts since shipping cross country for Sabot; gelding should be aggressively handled from this spot. (2) POP COP showed some signs of life last out and now drops in class. (6) PIERCE has raced really well in his last four efforts and he'll be a good price again.
