Racing Analysis HAMBO DAY 8/8/2020

 

RACE 1

5- happy Hambo day everyone!! Let’s get off to a winning start here, gets into this class because of money earned, racing well, nod

7- Dunn’s choice and that means a lot here, horse has been drawing away recently, player

 

1- gets his regular pilot back and draws the advantageous rail, pocket rocket ride?

RACE 2

3- went to Hoosier and did what she had to at thirty cents on the dollar, will be tough to beat in this compact field

4- got tired late in The Geers, has a nice final burst when she’s used only once 

 

2- got away slowly at The Meadows and that cost her, play underneath 

RACE 3

5- mare is a millionaire twice over, she’s the Queen of this division for a reason, watch and enjoy!!

3- gave JL Cruze all he could handle last week, looking for a big piece of the pie here

 

2- did what she had to do in the Miss Versatility, Ake mare has credentials 

RACE 4

3- that 15-1 ML looks awfully juicy to me, seems to be trending forward and may be ready to fire her best shot here

6- well traveled filly will be doing her work from off the pace, consistent sort

 

7- could be riding my second choice’s back through the far turn, good chance 

RACE 5

6- YG takes a seat in the bike now.. is this guy totally over those breaking issues?  I’m willing to say yes, fast horse puts it all together here

9- was going along nicely earlier this summer, looks to get his early season form back

 

4- gets Tetrick and I like that… especially on Hambo day!! Could sneak his way into this 

RACE 6

4- when the money is on the line I’m going with TT, needs a great drive and could very likely get one

10- jumped it off mid-stretch last week and now she’ll have work to do, I’d demand a reasonable price now

 

5- is getting better with every start and looks to peak when the big money is up for grabs 

RACE 7

8- likely needed that last one and this is second lasix now, tough horse knows how to get the job done

2- has been freshened up and should be ready to fire a doozy, catch him

 

3- lightly raced, but he’s fast! If the race falls apart the last 100 yards he’ll be coming hard

RACE 8

4- Yannick’s choice and that’s enough for me, hasn’t raced in almost three weeks but he’ll be ready 

1- is getting better each and every start, in a great position to grab a big share of this 

 

5- loses YG, but gets the services of DD.. not a bad thing! Can close nicely when he behaves 

RACE 9

7- just didn’t have it in the Del Miller, it happens.. has been given a few weeks off and I’ll be willing to say she’s all systems go

12- starts in the second tier which can be a nuisance, hasn’t ever been off the board

 

11- another that starts from the upper deck, has been freshened up like her stablemate 

RACE 10

4- have a feeling he’s gonna be brushing the front on the backside, plenty capable 

2- tough mare takes on the big boys, she won’t go down easily 

 

7- likely favorite and I’m willing to swing against him here, will need to be at his best 

RACE 11 HAMBO

2- I didn’t like him on the front last week, does his best work from off the pace, just needs a trip to take The Hambo!!!

1- has been carefully prepped for this day, gets a great spot to sit and watch the race unfold. Big player.

 

5- filly takes on the boys here, she’s got heart that’s for sure, has a few different options starting from post five, great chance.

RACE 12


6- had a feeling he wouldn’t fire his best last week..  now it’s back to business!! This shirt field will make him VERY tough to beat.

4- hasn’t won yet this year but he’s a good one, qualified nicely to tighten up for this 

5- upset the apple cart last week, can he do it again? Likely to show early speed


Race 13

6- had a feeling he wouldn’t fire his best last week..  now it’s back to business!! This shirt field will make him VERY tough to beat.

4- hasn’t won yet this year but he’s a good one, qualified nicely to tighten up for this 

5- upset the apple cart last week, can he do it again? Likely to show early speed

Race 14

3- love watching this guy race! Can absolutely fly when he gets his setup

6- burned himself up last week leaving from post nine, will be showing speed again here and hoping to get a rest along the way

1- he’s a little guy with a big heart, never very far off at the wire, rail draw keeps him in play 

Race 15

5- seven year old mare still has that competitive fire in her belly, will be game as always 

8- YG opted here and I can jive with that, looks fresh

4- always comes strong late in the mile and will need a decent pace to run at

Race 16

7- my horse of the day!!! Those NW8 are very tough at Yonkers, this is a winning spot!

4- has had some issues lately but seems plenty capable when he puts it all together 

10- is gonna need to leave for a spot if he wants any say in here
