Nick Tammaro’s Aqueduct Analysis – Saturday, February 27

AQUEDUCT – 2/27/2021

RACE 1: 1A-6-4

#1A MAKE OR BREAK drops in class and is in decent form for the underrated barn of Mertkan Kantarmaci.  She has the speed to stay close in this spot and there’s a dearth of early zip signed up.

RACE 2: 6-3-2-4

The ability shown on debut by #6 ONE GLAMOROUS GAL is enough to consider her a heavy favorite and likely winner.  This barn does well with second timers and she meets softer foes dropping in for a tag.

RACE 3: 3-2-5

Until dethroned, #3 MR. BUFF is the king of the winter handicap scene at the Big A.  He figures to notch another score here given the pace scenario and competition in this event.

RACE 4: 3-1/1A-7-9

This is the right spot class-wise for #3 TRI SAINT LORENZO, who is a good fit at this 7 furlong distance as well.  Look for him to be able to lay back and make one run given the likelihood of an honest pace.


RACE 5: 4-2-6

#4 TOUGH WORKOUT is a home bred son of Outwork out of a dam who scored on debut.  She dropped multiple NY bred winner Microscope, so there’s reason to believe this colt can be ready at first asking.

RACE 6: 4-1/1A-3

#4 HAVE A HEART represents low percentage connections, but has the best and most consistent speed figures of anyone in this race and should be a major stretch threat.  Provided the track is fair he’s a serious player.

RACE 7: 7-2-4

#7 VIKING ZIM is a firster by Mshawish, whose progeny score on debut at a 20% clip.  This colt worked :21 and 2/5 at the sale last year and has 3 siblings to win from 4 to race.  The dam was also a winner.


RACE 8: 9-11-10

#9 FRANKIE BARONE was wide the whole way last time out when facing tougher competition and now drops in class and cuts back a furlong.  He should get some pace to run at in here and will be a square price.

RACE 9: 10-4-9-11

#10 TASSI debuted against tougher competition and now returns off a break with Lasix.  She was close to the inside that day and that was not the place to be, so an outside stalking trip will help her cause in here.
