Esophagus Slice Saturday: The Conductor’s Plays at Aqueduct

The day of reckoning is upon us. 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.
