Yonkers: Tuesday 7/28 Analysis


MEET STATS: 207 - 661 / $1162.50 BEST BETS: 28 - 52 / $97.30

Best Bet: ROLAND N ROCK (3rd)



Race 1

(3) VANGURA raced very well in his local debut and a repeat of that effort will make him tough to beat; short price looming. (1) JACK REACHER qualified safely last out and he should be close up if he minds his manners. (7) REGGIANO will be offering speed, stamina seems to be the issue.

Race 2

(2) MUGSHOTS BRO raced just evenly last out but he has the looks of one who can show steady improvement as he gets more races under his belt; consider at a price from this inside post. (3) IMAGE OF LUCK races well when he minds his manners. (5) P MAC ATTACK has been flashing speed at The Meadowlands and hails from the sharp Johansson outfit.

Race 3

(7) ROLAND N ROCK saw his perfect win record snapped when he shipped to The Meadowlands to face the big boys but he certainly didn't disgrace himself; he looks like a strong play here despite the poor post. (1) FREEDOMFORMYSOUL has been a fringe player in NYSS events; this should be a better spot. (3) SPORTS BETTOR was good in his debut for Burke and he can have more to offer.

Race 4

(2) HOLLYWOODS THATWAY returns with some post relief and the 3-year-old sports a nice career record; Sears' choice. (4) WAITING ROOM has been minding her manners recently and has been flashing good speed; to the front. (8) GIANNI moves up in class looking for three straight and is stuck in the eight hole but the price will be right.

Race 5

(1) RAISE THE CURTAIN was used hard from the eight hole and held for a board spot last out, and prior to that he had been racing well out of town; post relief can get him over the top. (6) MOJITO AS throws in occasional breaks but when she minds her manners she's a big player. (4) SS POSIEDON has taken three of four and clearly Steve Smith gets along perfectly with him.

Race 6

(7) ROLLIN RING AFIRE took a shot in the Rooney, which didn't work out, but most recently he jogged at Tioga in a wicked-fast time; Charlie Norris trainee should be best here. (3) FAST MOVIN TRAIN seems to be camera-shy but he should be forwardly placed and a part of the number. (4) WELL WELL WELL gets needed post relief in his second start at this level for the Schnittker barn.

Race 7

(3) MAXI BON is still looking for that elusive first seasonal win but he did close welll last out and just needs some aggressive early handling to have a great chance. (1) CAVIART LUCA was third best to some good ones in last and is clearly the one to beat from this spot. (4) AMERICAN TOWER finally lands a better post to work with and should show more.

Race 8

(1) LIMITLESS has proven to be a good fit with this type and he recovered well after being bothered last out. The extremely talented Scott Zeron drives today and I have confidence in him to work out a good trip in this bulky field. (2) DREAMSTEELER has just missed in four straight; obviously the Banca mare can take all. (8) HOT SUMMER KNIGHT came from well out of it to score in his local return; he'll be at the back again today but seems capable of another rally.

Race 9

(5) BOUNCING BAX returns locally, now in the Noel Daley barn and she's been facing much better recently; Bartlett's choice can take these a long way. (2) CASH POOR ships back from Saratoga off a perfect-trip score and he picks up Brennan. (4) ELIAS JOY has never been one of my favorites but he switched barns last week and raced better.

Race 10

(10) PHOTOSAVVY hasn't fired with her best recently but she's faced better than these in the past and goes second-time Lasix. (9) STITCH IN TIME closed crisply last out after being used too hard the start prior in an added-distance event; Buter should be getting away decently midpack from this spot. (1) ALEXANDER LUKAS steps up after jogging upon arrival.

Race 11

(6) AS YA'LL LIKE IT double-jumps in class off a very impressive win and the mare does have some back class to work with; price should be decent in this wide-open event. (4) WINWOOD SCOUT is one of a number of trotters here with early speed and this gelding has been solid all season for all barns and at all distances. (1) ON THE PODIUM has tailed off recently but he beats these on his best day.

Race 12

(2) BLOOMFIELDCANTIFLY exits the amateur ranks, where she performed admirably, and gets Dube in the bike with a good post. Lots to like. (3) FALCOR BLUESTONE finally put it all together last out at Pocono and he can build off that effort. (6) ITZAZIAM has really fallen on hard times, earning less than $5,000 this year after banking 142K last season. Will he ever regain his form?
