The Prince of Aqueduct


Interesting feature, this ungraded turf route at the Big A, the Artie Schiller at one mile. This looks like the spot for Delta Prince (5-2) one of the more talented grass eunners in New York without a stakes victory.

His return at this level, at a distance of ground over which he's 3-for-4 with a string of recent impressive works for a Jimmy Jerkens, 27% profitable with this spacing, makes it appear that Jose O-ridden 4YO is sitting on go.

Taking Delta Prince to win at early line odds or greater and exacta key-boxes with LAY-2 Chad runner A Lot (6-1), also well intended here, and class dropping Blacktype (3-1).

Meet Me at the Big A Louie


For an 11-furlongs turf marathon that features a small field, there seems to be enough route speed signed on at least to insure that the pace will be contested at some point early to mid-race.

In that spirit, and for that reason, we're interested in St. Louie (2-1). At home on Big A turf (2-for-4), he handles the marathon trip, goes very well beneath Luis Saez and returns with adequate spacing for turf ace Mike Maker.

Taking St. Louie to win at early line odds or greater and an exacta box with the West Point Stable entry (3-1).

Franco On the Sky at Big A


Back to normal, i.e., a turf sprint feature, although the novelty is a 6F trip on the Big A turf course. Try as I might, I can't beat the favorite, Grand Sky (2-1).

He's the fastest on many speed scales, is well drawn, comes from live connections, and Manny Franco should be able to work out a good, ground-saving trip. He has speed when you need it to make that possible, assuming a clean break.

Taking Grand Sky to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing exactas with Banana Thief (6-1) and The Crocheron Kid (12-1).
