Al Cimaglia: Yonkers Pick 4 Analysis | Monday, June 6, 2022

Yonkers Raceway has a 12-race card set to begin the week. The feature goes in Race 9, an Open Handicap Pace with a $39,000 purse. The $1.00 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 7, and the sequence will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 7

1-Sonny Weaver N (3/2)-Usually a big track horse but had no issue getting on the engine and wiring this kind in last. Should be a major player and will offer no value.
7-Rockin M (8-1)-Rolled the back-half in .54 to cash a 2nd place check in a Pop-Up last week. Willing to take a swing there will be enough pace to close into and should be a solid price.

Race 8

4-Speed Man N (5/2)-Came off a sick scratch with a strong try from post 7 at this same class. Has a post edge on last week's winner #6 and could be even better tonight.
6-Priceless Beach (7/2)-Gingras had the pedal down and was used a couple of times in a sharp win. Winner in 4 of 6 starts at YR should be battling the one above for top honors.

Race 9

1-Mach N Cheese (5-1)-Should get a better trip than in last and comes right back which hasn't been the case lately. Team Stratton trainee can be in the mix throughout.
8-Betterrock (7/2)-Shipped back from M1 and had a big effort to just get nipped at the wire. Joe B has gate speed to use, and the pedal should be down here.

Race 10

3-Beltane A (3-1)-Does its best work racing near the top of the stack and Gingras could get there with this post draw. Needs a sharp steer to take a picture at this class and things could fall into place here.
6-I'm Some Graduate (7/2)-Wired this kind in last but got away with a thirty second 2nd quarter and that game plan is unlikely to be repeated. Looking for Bartlett to come off cover and be there at the wire.

$1.00 Late Pick 4

Total Bet=$16
