Finally had a decent week picking some winners. We had Sly McFly pay $10.40 to win in the Dash for the “C” Note final plus a nice $34.40 exacta and then Abrokenart Hanover came through and returned $8.40 in winning his “C” note final.

This is the final week of preliminary rounds for both the Matchmaker and Levy Series at Yonkers plus the final of the Whata Baron and Artistic Vision Series at the Meadowlands and the return of San Pail at Woodbine. Plenty of top flight racing action to watch and wager on. Good Luck!

$40,000 Pace Matchmaker Series Yonkers Raceway

4th race FRIDAY – Tried to find a way that Yagonnakissmeornot could get beaten in this final leg of the Matchmatcher Series. But I could not. Despite outside post this mare has been super sharp for trainer Rene Allard and can overcome post seven to take another leg before next weeks’ rich final. Use Krispy Apple and Ideal In Vegas in exotic plays.

$40,000 Pace Matchmaker Series Yonkers Raceway

11th race FRIDAY – This is a great matchup of some real powerhouse mares who will again battle it out next week in the final. I am taking a shot with the P J Fraley Stable entry of Anndrovette/Shelliscape. They both need to be first or second to get into the final and thus need to race their hearts out and off recent weeks they have ability to surprise in here going against some of the best in the series. Use Somwherovrarainbow and Angels Delight in exotic plays.

$25,000 Trot Preferred Handicap Pocono Downs

3rd race SATURDAY – Right now Modern Family is perhaps one of the best Open trotters in the country. Came back from a brief rest with an amazing 1:53.1 qualifying romp at Rosecroft Raceway and has been super sharp for trainer/driver Daryl Bier. Use Daylon Magician and Wind Of The North in exotic plays.

$30,000 Pace Bobby Weiss Final 3 & 4YOs Pocono Downs

8th race SATURDAY – Series saw the best effort of the year for A Stitch In Time last start with an amazing lifetime mark of 1:49.2. Should be able to repeat provided he can overcome having to start from the far outside in post nine. Use Trys Little Prince and UF Rockin Dragon in exotic plays.

$25,000 Pace Preferred Handicap Pocono Downs

10th race SATURDAY – After having his head handed to him in last two tries in the Levy Series, A J Corbelli smartly left Yonkers and comes to Pocono Downs where he drops and should pop from the rail. He was razor sharp before the series, even finished second in the opening round, but now should be able to handle this group and earn his keep. Use Abelard Hanover and Annieswesterncard in exotic plays.

$50,000 Pace Levy Series Yonkers Raceway

4th race SATURDAY – With a week’s rest after winning a series leg, Apprentice Hanover draws into a tough but beatable division as he needs the points to insure a spot in the final next week so watch for him to be racing at his best. Use the Burke Stable entry of Clear Vision/Hillbilly Hanover and P H Supercam in exotic plays.

$63,000 Pace Whata Baron Series Final Meadowlands

6th race SATURDAY – Most will side with Captive Audience here and perhaps should as he has been perfect in the series, undefeated in three starts and fresh as a daisy for the upcoming long season. But I am going with Wake Up Peter. Despite outside post he showed last week he can leave well enough to take command and hold on to the lead. In this case he may leave hard and get a two-hole trip where he can also score from. Use Captive Audience and Ontario Success in exotic plays.

$34,000 Preferred Trot Woodbine

9th race SATURDAY – It’s the 2014 debut of world class performer San Pail. $3.1 million career winner returns once again and looks to be back in shape. After two decent qualifying wins under his belt he should be ready for action and show his back class and his heels to his much younger rivals. Use Slip Into Glide and Zeus Lightning in exotic plays.

$55,500 Final Artistic Vision Pacing Series Meadowlands

 11th race SATURDAY – With a perfect season underway and 6 for 6, American In Paris should be at her best once again seeking to sweep the series in the final. Teamed with stablemate Art Ideal they look to be unbeatable in here. Use JK Letitgo and Road Bet in exotic plays.

$50,000 Pace Levy Series Yonkers Raceway

11th race SATURDAY – It’s the final preliminary division for the long series and Yonkers always saves the best for last. It’s Team Burke against four other poor souls. It’s the three-horse entry of Foiled Again/Special Forces/Easy Again. Win wagering and exacta only, no trifectas. With the way he has comeback this season Foiled Again should have little trouble remaining unbeaten in five starts. Use Mach It So and Word Power in exotic plays or sit this one out and just watch one of harness racing’s great performers do his thing.
