AQUEDUCT – 4/3/22
RACE 1: 5-6-3
#5 FORESTWOOD LANE narrowly missed last time out at this level and seems poised to exit the maiden ranks with a similar effort. You’ll have to swallow a short price in a race where contention hardly runs deep.
RACE 2: 1-5-4
#1 BABY BOSS is the one to catch from the inside first off a positive claim by Charlie Baker. This daughter of Frost Giant was in tough last time out behind repeat winner Awesome Indra and fits well in this spot.
RACE 3: 1-4-3-2
#1 NEW YORK BANKER looms a major player second time against winners after running her best race to date last time out for trainer Mike Miceli. She has the speed to protect the inside and will be in the mix from the opening bell.
RACE 4: 6-4-2
Why can’t #6 KAREN’S COVE wire this bunch? He is drawn favorably on the outside and looks like the main speed in a weak field. If able to get clear under the double bug, he just might forget to quit.
RACE 5: 4-2-8-6
#4 DAREDEVIL BULL goes first off a claim by trainer Jeff Englehart, who has done very well with these types at this meet. This daughter of Daredevil was a good second two back at Parx and now comes to NY off a poor effort where she set a white hot pace. An easier time of it early would help her cause.
RACE 6: 4-1-6-5
#4 SINFUL DANCER is the one to beat moving back into the NY bred ranks off a runner-up finish behind blowout winner Disco Pharoah. He is the one to catch today for a barn that already has two wins this week.
RACE 7: 6-4-5
#6 PRAIRIE FIRE surged late to score last time out from just off the pace and figures to be rolling in the closing stages once again. She has been remarkably consistent over this oval and is realistically spotted off the claim by the underrated barn of Charlie Baker.
RACE 8: 5-1-6-3
#5 PRETTY CLEVER is capable of upsetting this field given the layoff of #1 VELVET SISTER. This daughter of Hard. Spun is beautifully bred and has plenty of upside. She was a good third last time out in her first start off the bench and she should be set for improvement here.
RACE 9: 8-9-7-6
#8 ARDUOUSLY is drawn favorably on the outside and should be involved from the start today. She has had the misfortune of racing on the wrong part of the surface on multiple occasions recently and now should have few impediments on the way to an early lead.
