AQUEDUCT – 3/6/2021
RACE 1: 3-6-2
#3 DESTINATIONWINNERSCIR raced against the grain of the track last time out and now faces a weak field in a spot where he should graduate.
RACE 2: 4-5-3-1/1A
#4 MAMA KIN faced considerably better last time out and now gets needed class relief for a barn that has continued to strike at a high rate this winter.
RACE 3: 5-7-1-3
#5 MORGANTOWN is taking an enormous drop in class but has been disadvantaged of late by racing on the wrong part of the track on multiple occasions. This is the right spot class-wise at this point in his career.
RACE 4: 7-1-5-2
#7 FLEET WARRIOR lost ground from the start last time out, which came during the period when the inside was particularly good over the Big A main track. He has the speed to get control of this event from the start.
RACE 5: 5-1/1A-7
#5 SCOTTO improved on a barn change last time out and seems poised to leave the maiden ranks with any improvement off of that effort in this spot.
RACE 6: 3-5-1
#3 SEARCH RESULTS won authoritatively on debut and now ships up for trainer Chad Brown. Though she will have to run a considerably faster race, there’s clear upside here.
RACE 7: 6-2-1
#6 WENDELL FONG is the “now” horse and should get a huge pace setup today. He exits an effort that was good enough to win this, and the circumstances of this race look to be in his favor.
RACE 8: 8-5-2
There were always high expectations for #8 LAKE AVENUE, and she might be set to realize them as a 4YO. Her seasonal debut was outstanding and she meets a soft bunch in what constitutes only a minor jump in class.
RACE 9: 3-5-7-2
#3 HIGHLY MOTIVATED showed flashes of brilliance as a 2YO, including when he won the Nyquist. That turned out to be a key race, and this colt still has a world of potential.
RACE 10: 2-8-4
#2 COOLBOY had the wrong trip given the track profile last time out and now lands in a softer spot one rung down the class ladder.
