Pacers Stampede At Yonkers
Dreamlands Art (4) is one of Ron Burke’s series campaigners, coming from the trainer’s hot stable at the Meadows. “Art” is ready for this and could come through with a price. Foreign Officer (1) was one of the top three-year-old pacers last year and should be in it. Wholly Louy (2) returns to the series where he has done best.
Real Nice (7) loves this track and this series, playing a longshot role in exotics as well as winning legs more than once. He should be a good price here with two-time defending series champ Foiled Again on the plyons. Whackamole Hanover (2) is looking to go three for four. The outsider could be Poker Hat (5), expected to race better than he has recently.
Go Go Solano (1) is a New York-bred champ who can battle with the best of this group. He is bound to pick up some big cash in the series even if he doesn’t make it to the end, so grab what he may offer now. Southwind Lynx (5) loves Yonkers and returns after doing well at Dover. Valentino (8) comes to Yonkers for the first time in the Surick barn. Last year, this horse almost beat One More Laugh in the Cleveland Classic at 10-1.
The Mohegan Pan (3) has had some rough miles at the Meadowlands while being heavily backed. This could be the place for him and hopefully he will be ignored on the board. Legal Litigator (7) comes back after losing here in his last start. Pangiorno (1) comes off a good qualifier in 1:53.1. The one to watch is Forensic Z Tam (5), who meets less aggressive field then he is used to facing.
Levy Race 11
Bluegrass Western (4) does not promise a good price here but may be ready for a giant mile. Shoobee’s Place (2) comes to get his first victory in 2011. Southern Allie (5) struggled at the Meadowlands and comes back to Yonkers after breaking issues. The one to watch is This Is Wyatt (1), coming off a win in the Open Handicap at Yonkers; he has won four of six this year.
Meadowlands Pick 4
Saturday, March 26 it's another shot at the no-takeout late Pick 4 at Cal Expo.
(2) Heelwin was a sharp second last week to a good winner. (8) Perfect Magic was in a marred race but swept almost a dozen lengths to the top during the maylay.
(7) Jet Tet Tet should return with a win in this field of breakers, layoff horses and poor performances.
(6) Pedal Pad was the beaten favorite last week in a better group than this, losing due to an overland journey. Another single.
(3) Nikoleta should have won but held for second. (8) Don’t Dally Witch shocked with a sharp-closing second at 24-1
If you want to use all of these, the ticket cost $8. You can add to it but we like it so much we may buy it twice.
