Race 1

(2) PLAYEROSA did rally strongly to nail down the victory at the Meadowlands three starts ago. Gelding can top these at his best. (1) RANSOM DEMAND showed some speed and the rail should help his cause. (6) GOOD DAY MATE was sharp two back at the Big M and held on for place money.

Race 2

(6) BROADWAY ROCKS goes back to a flat mile and that seems to be his better distance; gets the call. (1) FOX VALLEY STEFFEN is knocking at the door based on his last two tries. (4) MEADOWVIEW ARNY was first up at the 3/4 pole and tired in the stretch run last out.

Race 3

(1) SOUTHWIND TERROR was sent down the road in his last try but did not have enough gas in the tank and settled for the show spot; ready to fire from the rail. (2) ARTISTIC DIRECTOR has been quite good in his last two starts and could move forward. (7) ONEISALONELYNUMBER Jersey invader could make some noise in the stretch drive.

Race 4

(4) LASER LUCY put in a nice run for fourth last out at the Meadowlands. Catches a weak group and she could take this by default. (1) KASCARA ROSA led most of the way but trotting mare tired in deep stretch last time around. (7) SIM BROWN was nailed for win honors in his last trip.

Race 5

(3) CELEBRITY BLUECHIP was late on the scene and was third best in his recent outing. Figures to get a favorable trip and boss these at his best. (2) SURFACE TENSION returns to the mile distance and could make some noise in the outcome. (7) LAUDERDALE was sharp for the victory in his latest.

Race 6

(1) MUSCLE DEFINED makes his debut at Yonkers and keeps the rail slot. Can top these down the road. (2) ONE CHIEF raced evenly in his last try and could move forward. (7) LUV AT FIRST SITE closed well to nail down the show spot last out.

Race 7

(1) AMERICAN FLIGHT gets serious post relief and gelding seems to be coming around to winning form; gets the call. (3) MC DYNAMITE moves down in class and has tactical speed; big threat. (4) EMPEROR MONTANA N just ran out of gas and held on for place money last time out.

Race 8

(5) BJ'S BEQUIA should find these to his liking and with a well rated drive this gelding could get the job done over these. (3) WHAT I BELIEVE was nailed for win honors in his last try. (7) BENJAMINBANNEKER N just missed glory by a 1/2 length.

Race 9

(6) SWISHNFLICK gets class relief and trotting mare has fine speed; ready to top these at her best. (1) CALIPARI is clearly knocking at the door and the rail should make him a factor in here. (2) A J DESTINY Gelding has put in two good seconds in a row; watch out.

Race 10

(4) PETROSSIAN AS had the lead turning for home but could not hold off the winner in deep stretch last time out. Sophomore trotter seems to be fit and ready to get back on the winning track. (1) GONEINAPUFFOFSMOKE has wheeled off two straight victories and gets the rail today. (7) TIGHT LINES showed early trot in stakes event at Tioga; not out of this.

Race 11

(7) MONEYCOUNTS DE VIE should appreciate the drop in class and the trotting gelding fits with this group; with a fine-timed drive he can get the job done. (1) APOSTLES CREED took the pocket route home to victory in his last start. (3) JAYPORT ALL MUSCLE Very consistent trotter was sharp in his latest.

Race 12

(1) LIFE UP FRONT rallied late to nail down the third spot last time around. 10-year-old pacer gets serious post relief and does have tactical speed; big threat for win honors.  (6) BETTOR REASON N was on the rim but could not sustain his bid and lasted for the show spot recently. (3) PRONOLOGY Z TAM should fare well from the 3-hole; maybe.
