The day of reckoning is upon us at Aqueduct. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. Clm 40000n2L
#4 Casper Slew (5/2) – 2nd off the layoff, this colt is steadily progressing and Jose Ortiz hops aboard. He’s working well and looks to get a great trip up close to a moderate pace.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. (Outer Turf) F.S.Mdn 62k
#8 Chouchou de Boo (8/1) – She ran well in her debut at a huge number in a race taken off the turf. She should move up on the grass an Castellano takes the mount.
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.S.Alw 66000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Tempers Way (8/1) – Getting back on the turf, she’s the only girl who wants the lead in year. She has a major chance to wire this field.
Race 4: 6½ Furlongs. Clm 10000
#3 Sir Ballantine (6/1) – Cutting back to a sprint, he’ll be flying late and loves the Aqueduct surface.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. (Outer Turf) Clm 25000
#2 Celebration (6/1) – He has an early pace edge over this group, which is always dangerous in a turf sprint.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 70k
#1 Telephone Talker (2/1) – This colt ran very well in his debut sprinting on turf and is bred to be even better on the lawn.
Race 9: 1 3/8Mile. (Turf) G3 Red Smith Stakes
#3 Nakamura (10/1) – He keeps running well regardless of having slow paces to close into. He has huge late pace figures and looks to get a fairer setup today.
