Yonkers: Tuesday 6/2 Analysis


MEET STATS: 163 - 501 / $871.70  BEST BETS: 21 - 40 / $76.60

Best Bet: MOJITO AS (6th)

Spot Play: CARD SHOCK (12th)


Race 1

(4) WACO BRUISER has just one career win but he's got good early speed which should put him into play. (5) TRUE HERO rallied belatedly in his debut for Banca and now he gets some post relief but I suspect he'll be overbet. (2) MIKADO BLUECHIP went evenly in his two local appearances last month.

Race 2

(5) BINGO QUEEN has missed some time, which is a concern, but I suspect Kleinhans will be able to handle her well and she can charge home in this impossible-to-figure amateur event. (6) MOVEMENT has been sharp in most recent efforts. (1) WHATNBLAZES has class to him and he should be close up throughout.

Race 3

(3) TUFF GUY LINDY broke upon arrival when shipped in from Plainridge, where he had been tearing it up. Give him another chance. (4) UP ZET has been racing well for Forte without a victory to show for it. (7) SMART AS A WHIP was likely facing better at The Meadowlands; have to respect the Svanstedt barn.

Race 4

(1) BRICKMAN finished with willing pace in his local effort three back and he returns with the best post; Brennan should be able to work out a live trip. (3) WISHING YOU WELL gained too late and just missed as the heavy favorite upon entering the Banca barn; big threat. (4) GIOVANNI arrives from Canada and joins the Allard barn; youngster was Sears' choice.

Race 5

(5) JK ALLNITELONG has been very consistent in his last few efforts, including a trip-sitting win last out in a minor NYSS contest; Sears should definitely be firing from the gate. (1) SIR SAM'S Z TAM finally picked up a win last out and gets another crack with similar. (2) BYBY LANDON gets post relief in his second local start.

Race 6

(3) MOJITO AS  was a solid winner upon arrival for connections who have had plenty of local success with trotters in the past; repeats at a short price. (1) QUIKWIT has hinted at ability and draws best. (4) MERGATROID never wins but she does have speed and stays flat; note that Jeff Gregory drives today.

Race 7

(3) DEWYCOLORINTHELINE hasn't really put in a bad effort all season, but he's seemingly been just a notch below some of his competitors. He gets a very favorable draw today and wouldn't be a total shock with a live trip. (12) LUMINOSITY is the current King of the Open, having taken three straight in solid fashion, but he's going to have to navigate early traffic from the second tier. (6) BACKSTREET HANOVER has proven she can go with these and she can complete the bottom of the ticket at a big price.

Race 8

(10) STITCH IN TIME finished very willingly for Buter in his local debut and with some racing luck he appears capable in this well-matched event; price should be good. (1) BOUND FOR FAME shows some good efforts recently with better; logical. (8) WESTERN CREDIT was used early overcoming the eight hole last out and understandably tired late; prior race was a sharp closing effort. (2) LIMITLESS looks for four straight for the Allard barn.

Race 9

(5) ANDRIY FORTUNA never looked comfortable last week and ultimately made a break. A more relaxed effort early combined with the added distance can work in his favor today. (9) MUGSHOT JESS had no chance last week but his prior effort was a solid win; veteran fits with these. (10) ROCK OF CASHEL has a solid brush in him but it has to be timed right.

Race 10

(3) WINWOOD SCOUT never fired on the rim last out after being stuck with a second-tier start; from this post it should be much smoother sailing. (1) DREAMSTEELER was super in victory last out, finally putting it together in her third start for Garcia-Herrera; capable of repeating but there won't be much value. (4) MASSIVE TALENT moves inside and can be more involved. (6) CHELSEAS CHANCE returns locally for a barn that's had success here this year.

Race 11

(2) SEAGRAM hasn't done much this year but he does enter a new barn via claim and finds his softest spot in some time. (6) SUN OF A VICTORY does look much the best on paper but he was also claimed last out from a leading trainer; red flag? (9) DIAMONDS R US does fit at this claiming level but she has to mind her manners.

Race 12

(2) CARD SHOCK held pretty well last out after a tough trip chasing some good rivals; this looks like his best spot he's had since returning from Canada. (5) BRISTOL BAY was second best to a runaway winner upon arrival. (7) GOOD SIDE has two big wins at The Meadowlands since joining the Drennan barn.
