Shippers Rule the Day as Big A Main Track Reopens


In recognition of the return to main track racing at Aqueduct--and before the animal rights groups put padlocks on the entrances (does that also include the casino?)—we’re analyzing today’s feature, the Lynclar for older fillies and mares sprinting six furlongs.

To say this race is open might be understating the case; each member of the seven horse field has a legitimate chance to win this. We’re opting for ship-in Strike The Moon (5-1) for several reasons.

First, if you take a look at recent company lines, you’ll see names like Pomeroys Pistol, Belle of the Hall and R Holiday Mood, a pretty salty group of female speedsters that were last seen in action at Gulfstream Park. Further, her internal figure for this distance when narrowly beaten in a similar spot two back is more than good enough to win this.

Surrounding that effort came two Grade 3 sprints now she tries overnight stakes company for a barn that’s batting 21% at the current meet and is 22% lifetime with its shippers. Regular rider Julien Pimentel reunites with the 4-year-old filly who’s 1-for-1 on this surface.

Taking Strike The Moon to win at 7-2 or greater and key boxing her in multiples with sharp horse for course Isn’t She Grand (10-1), and fast-working shippers Aquitania (7-2) and My Sunshine Gal (12-1).

Running Totals: (1046) 323-204-153 Total Dollar Return: $2,229.40 [win selections only]
