Spot Play: CASSAS IMAGE (2nd)


Race 1

(2) BEACHY DREAM makes his return to Yonkers and the gelding does have a fondness for this trackl threat at his best. (6) SANDESTIN HANOVER moves down the ladder and that might help his cause. (1) WYNBERG COURAGE N should find these to his liking and draws the rail; watch out.

Race 2

(3) CASSAS IMAGE is knocking at the door based on her latest effort for second money; all systems go for all the glory. (1) FOUR STARZ CREDIT was sent down the road last out for the victory; going for the hat trick. (6) SURFACE TENSION had a sharp performance in his Pocono finale for the score last out; not out of this.

Race 3

(1) MOVEMENT Mare is very tough scoring her second straight victory last out and should keep on her winning ways. (3) WARRAWEE ONYX Gelding was third best in his last try at Pocono; contender. (4) JURGEN HANOVER rallied strongly to nail down the victory recently.

Race 4

(4) BROADWAY ROCKS was facing Open foes at Freehold last time around and the trotter makes his return to Yonkers; can boss these at his best. (1) HOME TURF gets serious post relief and he does have some early trot. (2) WHATNBLAZES moves back to the 2-hole where he was a game second two trips ago; must be considered in all the exotic slots.

Race 5

(2) WINTERBERRY Filly did not race badly in her Monticello finale and the trotting miss has tactical speed and the 2-hole; could make some serious noise. (4) ALL NIGHT CREDIT came down the center of the track but could not get to the winner in his latest effort; main danger. (5) DO THE DEAL put in an awesome qualifier at Monticello last out which makes this sophomore the one to fear.

Race 6

(4) TOP OF THE LINE took the pocket route home to victory last time out and this 3-year-old trotter is very capable of taking another one. (5) DEWY DON'T CHEAT was a game second in Canada and figures to be right in the hunt against these. (2) HURRIKANE TONY MAC put in a game effort to nail down the victory in his last start; don't overlook.

Race 7

(2) NOBLE WARRAWEE finally receives post relief and is on the dropdown; big threat. (6) FASHION CHOCOLATE got the job done last out via the pocket; dangerous. (5) GAELIC AND GARLIC has wheeled off two straight victories and should again be right in the mix.

Race 8

(2) SOUTHERN CROSS is clearly knocking at the door based on his last two starts. Gelding can take this with a well judged drive. (4) ONE TOO MANY has good speed and should find the half-mile oval to her liking; threat. (1) ALL THAT SPARKLES can make an impact from the fence; maybe.

Race 9

(6) MUSCLE DEFINED had some trouble turning for home but this gelding made a great recovery to grab the glory last time around and you have to love his consistency. So with that said two straight is not out of the question. (8) CANDY LANE Trotting filly took the pocket route en route to victory last time out; post hurts today but she is very capable. (3) NOBLE POWER was second best in his latest and figures to have a say in the outcome.

Race 10

(2) PARTY ON THE RIVER could not get to the winner in his last start. 4-year-old trotter seems to be in fine form so basically he can put his best foot forward. (5) GRACIE HANOVER was facing tougher at the Meadows last out and now she is back with old friends; big threat. (1) CAPT SERIOUS should fare much better from the fence.

Race 11

(1) PIERCEWAVE HANOVER Trotting gelding has put in three sharp efforts in a row and now he draws the rail. Can take this with Sears at the helm. (2) MADMAN HALL moves to the 2-hole and that should help his cause; we shall see. (8) HONOR AND SERVE takes a big drop in class but will have to get it done from the 8-hole; capable.

Race 12

(2) TOATSMYGOATS Gelding moves to the half-mile oval and has fine speed; can take these down the road. (1) MANHATTAN BENNY took charge at the 1/4 pole from post 8 but had nothing left in the tank in the stretch drive last out but now moves to the fence and that puts him right in the mix. (3) TYE SEELSTER was on the engine most of the way but tired in deep stretch last time around; can't be overlooked in this event.
