The Ductor is focusing on only the dirt races with potential snow. A solid three whack at Aqueduct to start the racing week. Let’s Ride.
NYRA Aqueduct Race 1: 1 Mile. Mdn 80k
#1 Rock Sugar (4/1) – The Ductor played him last time and he got a terrible trip and ride. His race behind Risk Taking last year would beat this group and the Ductor likes the added distance for him today. He gets a rider upgrade too.
Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.OC 80000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Boss Lady Kim (6/1) – They thought enough of this filly to ship her to Saratoga and run in a Grade 2 after her debut. She was eased in that race and came ran to run a very strong 3rd with major trouble last time. Jose takes the mount for a barn he rarely rides for, and the Ductor is leery of the odds-on favorite who ran a big number in the slop on debut.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. Mdn 80k
Gunton Roe (6/1) – While this colt was well bet on debut and had a no chance trip where he made a sustained wide move on the turn. He puts blinkers on today and the Ductor sees him taking a big step forward.
