0-for-1 on Monday, with WILL E SUTTON running poorly in the Aqueduct opener.
Gulfstream – Race 6
#4 BEN COPENHAGEN (4/1 ml)
Juan Avila firster comes into this race looking very speedy after a sharp gate drill on Dec 19 with HITECH IS BACK, who finished 4th after setting the pace for a half-mile (at 11/1 odds) in the BOSTON POST ROAD/MISCHIEFFUL race last Sunday. BEN COPENHAGEN also appears to have outworked HITECH IS BACK in a best-of-87 gate drill on Jan 9 (HITECH IS BACK was 2nd-of-87 while going a fifth slower). Sandwiched between those drills was another strong workout where BEN COPENHAGEN was clearly best over an unraced barnmate. Figures to show speed and run well in here.
Win record: 24-for-87 (28% winners)
Total mutuels: $206.30 ($8.60 average win price)
