Yonkers Raceway has an 11-race card. The 0.50 Pick 5 with a $10,000 guaranteed pool rolls in Race 5. The $1.00 Late Pick 4 starts in Race 8, and it will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 8 (9:20 PM EST)

2-C-Bet Hanover (4-1)-Recent form has been good and picked up a win at YR and at M1. Steps up and might be overlooked. Will respect chances, can get a similar trip and winning 3 straight isn’t out of the question. Will fade #3 Air Force Hanover who is 8/5 in the morning line and that feels like an underlay.
4-Eminem Hanover (8-1)-Drops to a more competitive level and Brent Holland has some gate speed to use. Could leave and get the jump on others and the price is right to take a swing.
6-Arden Messi N (12-1)-Drops to a winnable level but needs a sharp drive. This could be a spot for Joe B to stalk and then take advantage of a quick pace. Time will tell if looking for prices in this leg was the right strategy.

Race 9 (9:40 PM EST)

5- Gamblingterror (9/2)-Raced well versus better to come a close 2nd coming off an injured scratch. Not really feeling any of the others in this field, and sometimes it’s best to not over think. Should be a major player, comes back in sequence and hopefully the ML price holds up.

Race 10 (10:00 PM EST)

5-Laz (5/2)-Has been in sharp form in the last 3 races and those were versus this kind. Makes the 1st start off a claim by the DiDomenico barn. Will likely be good again but might be bet down.
7-Human Cocktail (6-1)-Wired this type in last but that was from the 4-hole. Drawing post 7 helps the price and there isn't a lot of gate speed inside. Might not land on the point but should get a close-up seat and that could be enough for a picture.

Race 11 (10:20 PM EST)

1-This Is The Plan (2-1)-Drops and with this post draw it is difficult to leave off the ticket. Also using because there were price shots taken in earlier legs. But can't completely trust so will use 2 others.
2-Hunters Hero (4-1)-Will toss last from the 8-hole at this level. Will need a strong effort to win and usually does well with a cozy trip. Should get that tonight and could roll by down the lane.
7-Leonidas A (8-1)-Well, on the drop it does make some sense to use at this price. Could pop if gets a sharp steer. The days of getting respect because of back class has passed for me, at least versus this kind.

$1.00 Late Pick 4
