Yonkers: Tuesday 7/26 Analysis


MEET STATS: 177 - 750 / $1,138.90

BEST BETS: 21 - 73 / $110.20

Best Bet: TWISTED PRETZEL (3rd)          

Spot Play: HIDDEN IDENTITY (6th)


Race 1

(3) MIRAMONTMAN Sharp in his last trip to the post and could put his best foot forward against these.  (2) ARTISTIC DIRECTOR tired as the chalk recently but could rebound. (1) PLAYEROSA needs a better trip than in his last to make an impact.

Race 2

(4) WYGANT PRINCESS showed signs of life last time out. This trotting mare stays in same condition and could take this with a fine-timed drive. (1) FORT VALLEY AS gets post and class relief and that might be the ticket that will put him into the winner's circle; we shall see. (3) TRADING PLACES could have a say in the outcome.

Race 3

(3) TWISTED PRETZEL Upstate invader will give Yonkers a shot for glory. Trotter fits well in here and could be the boss at his best. (5) BROADWAY ROCKS was sharp in his last start missing the score by only a length; threat. (1) SOBORO HANOVER did not fire at Philly last time out but this seems to be a better spot for this gelding; watch out.

Race 4

(1) SOUTHERN WINDS Gelding closed down the center of the track to get the job done in his recent outing. Now moves to the rail so two straight is clearly not out of the question. (2) BJ'S BEQUIA put in a game effort but could not get to the winner in his latest. (5) SIMPLY BUSINESS has tactical speed and could make some noise against this group.

Race 5

(3) SURFACE TENSION closed late to get up for the victory last time out. Trotter stays in same company and Brennan stays at the controls; the pick. (4) MUGSHOT JESS moves back to the 4-hole where he was a game second two trips ago. (2) ITZAZIAM could have a say if he returns to his July 4th outing at Philly.

Race 6

(3) HIDDEN IDENTITY Clearly this trotter is knocking at the door. If he stays on gait the rest will have to settle for place money. (4) LAUDERDALE has good speed and most likely will be on the engine; main danger. (6) MOVEMENT has tactical speed and Brennan keeps the faith; not out of this.

Race 7

(3) ONE CHIEF Trotter fits with these and Brennan stays in the sulky. With a well judged drive this sophomore can get the job done. (5) LUV AT FIRST SITE raced evenly and held on for fourth money in his last trip. (1) UNCLE DAN was sent down the road last time out for all the glory; watch out again.

Race 8

(1) RANGERS SURESHOT makes his return to Yonkers and gets the luck of the draw. Capable of being the boss over this group. (4) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N led every step of the way but ran out of gas to hold on for the placing. (6) BOOGIEWOOGIEBRIAN could land a share of the purse.

Race 9

(3) TRUST FUND BABY 4-year-old gelding closed strongly to nail down the place spot at the Meadows last time around. Now he moves to the Hilltop and good to see Bartlett with the assignment. (1) FASHION CHOCOLATE retains the rail and has speed; main danger. (3) FLEET BUMBLEBEE should fare much better from the 2-hole.

Race 10

(3) HILLMAN was second best in his last start so you have to like the way this trotter is in fine form; can be the boss over these at his best. (5) THE PERFECT LINDY got the job done via the pocket route in his last trip. (4) BAHAMA MAMA AS Trotting miss gets post relief and that could help her cause.

Race 11

(2) CAPT SERIOUS is very consistent and scored in his last try. Stays in same company and figures to be tough in here. (4) CUDDLE PUNK held on for win honors last time out; main danger. (6) SKY HANOVER did not fire in her Jersey finale but might find these to her liking.

Race 12

(2) KINDOFABIGDEAL moves inside and has tactical speed. Gelding is 0 for 13 but finally can make today a winning one. (1) AMERICAN FLIGHT retains the rail and good to see Sears at the helm; main danger. (6) J JS DELIVERY could land a share of the purse.
