MEET STATS: 18 - 48 / $88.80  BEST BETS: 3 - 4 / $10.70

Best Bet: WELL TO DO (8th)

Spot Play: BAGS OF MONEY (6th)


Race 1

(2) UPPERCUTZ has no chance from post seven in this class last time. He’s no world-beater but is good enough to score at a decent price. (4) NEAT gets a ton of class relief and should win. That said, he has only one win in 22 starts. (8) THEY CALL ME GORDY is an unknown factor coming off a huge mile with Lasix added on the Iowa fair circuit; using.

Race 2

(1) WELL CONNECTED KID finds a field lacking in early speed and should sit a nice trip. (3) BROOKROAD KNIGHT broke while on the move last time. He drops again and figures to be a major player. (5) KEYSTONE WYATT might be the lone speed in the race.

Race 3

(5) CORKY BARAN is a shell of his former self, but he did show some late life last time and doesn’t exactly tackle a sharp group. (2) THISGUYAROCKSTAR lacks the class of some of the others, but is as sharp as any. (1) SAINT WILLIAM A has some speed and pylon position.

Race 4

(3) MILITARY STRATCOM bumped up off the claim and couldn’t handle the more difficult competition. He drops back down and figures prominently. (2) WAYWARD SON was claimed for $20K and quickly finds himself in for $15K; tricky call. (6) MR SHADOW moves into a good barn.

Race 5

(5) SAINT PATTY’S DOLL was claimed last time and now finds himself in a high percentage barn for the top driver at the track. (1) POINTE OF HONOUR looks like the one to beat with speed from the cones. (7) GO JESSE GO is clearly sharp and should have a chance to get early position in this longer race.

Race 6

(6) BAGS OF MONEY is racing better than you may think considering he has drawn post eight or worse in each of his last four starts. (1) GEORGE JETTISON makes his second start off the bench and drops way down the claiming ladder; tough call. (3) IDEAL CARVER is clearly sharp.

Race 7

(5) NATHAN FEELSGOOD was a solid last week and seems to have found a softer spot this week. (2) ROYAL BECQUET ships in for connections that deserve respect. (6) KEEMOSABE has high speed and the ‘Minister’ in the bike. (3) PACIFIC DESPERADO would be no shock, but he’ll need a decent trip.

Race 8

(4) WELL TO DO blitzed a NW 2 field two starts back. He had no chance from post seven last time but should be able to handle this weak-looking bunch. (1) ROYAL RECEPTION doesn’t look like much on paper but should protect his inside position for a big check. (3) GRANDPA DON returns to Yonkers with more confidence after an easy win at Monticello.

Race 9

The inside four in this race all sport legitimate credentials. (2) BETTOREVER posted his lifetime best with Brennan in the bike at Yonkers in July. Gelding should get around the pylon horse and sit no worse than second. (3) TWIN B SPY was super in his first start off the claim; very dangerous. (4) BONDI HANOVER scored in his first start for new connections. This guy has been facing better for much of his career. (1) IDEAL WILLIE already has a win at this level.

Race 10

(7) FOR A BETTOR TIME just paced a 1:52 mile at Monticello. He should be able to score with a reasonable trip. (1) CMON MR BROCK finds himself in a new barn; inside speed. (6) BEST SAID is as consistent as they come; exotics must.

Race 11

(3) GENIUS AT WORK has come into his own over the last month and looks like the clear one to beat. (6) LINDYS CRAZY DOLL hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire but could awaken with Sears signed on. (2) SLICE SLICE BABY aimed too high last time; player.

Race 12

(6) TWIN B TENACIOUS only needs to stay pacing to win easily. (2) SER JON has some early speed and could be cutting the mile. (4) MANHATTAN BENNY has been in the top three more than 50% of his races.
