Yonkers Race 6
Bye Hanover (5) Steps up after loss. Good spot for longshot. Ideal Classic (2) wired similar from 4 post. Remains tough. Rose Run Toni (1) uncharacteristic break in last as 1-2 chalk. Must consider from the rail. Ella Is Awesome (4) necked in strong bid. Will be closing fast.
Selections: 5, 2, 1, 4
Yonkers Race 8 is at the distance of one mile and one sixteenth. That means the race starts earlier in the stretch and it gives the outside horses a better chance with a much longer straightaway. They carded these races a few years ago and it was great. Many 7 and 8 post horses were hitting the board. None Bettor A (6) Import makes US debut. He is used to racing added distances. In a good spot here. Y’s Lotus (8) Empty bid from rail as 1-1 chalk. On his best, he is very fast. Post is a factor. Military Master A (2) Not close in four 2019 starts. Has a chance to improve from this spot. Late Mail N (1) Can leave enough to find a great trip from here. Must use in all exotic wagers.
Selections: 6, 8, 2, 1
Yonkers Race 10
You Said It (3) Won last 3 in a row at Pompano, Florida. Ships north and finds a good spot. Won 3 of 4 this year. The rest of the field has 2 wins combined. Photobombr Hanover (7) Been overmatched lately. Takes drop in class tonight. Must consider. Art History (1) draws rail. Should improve after bad races from outside posts. Take It Back Terry (2) Burke trainee moves inside and also takes a BIG drop in class. Can land in the exotics.
Selections: 3, 7, 1, 2
