Yonkers Peek At Program- Saturday, January 20th

 

 

Some insights into tonight’s racing program for our IdaBet players:

 

4TH RACE – (5) ESCAPE THE NEWS returned with some crisp, late energy in ’18 bow. Now intrigues getting tagged in ‘Welcome Baffles Gravel’ Invitational.

 

5TH RACE – (2) MACINTOSH N was gazed from pole in last, but didn’t put up much of a fight to pocket protect. No-threat third, maybe more aggressive here.

 

6TH RACE – (2) TAKE IT BACK TERRY did too well with the 1-through-6 draw to ignore in tonight’s winners-over feature. Never cheats in effort department.

 

7TH RACE – (2) RURAL ART was given a decent-enough tow a week ago, but didn’t fire. Even third then when ‘peeked,’ gets another short from good venue.

 

8TH RACE – (5) BETTOREVER annoyed us last time around, perfectly set up behind eventual first-up winner, finding best stride too late. Thus, we go again.

 

10TH RACE – (3) MACON GEORGIA A was beast as high-end claimer late last season, then raced out of his element. Returns for price and may have takers.

 

11TH RACE – (5) SOTO couldn’t hack a two-move effort in seasonal debut a week ago. Hard-trying sort figures to have much easier time from here, so we gaze.
