Take a Holiday From the Chalk Board
Today's Aqueduct feature race goes as the third, an optional allowances for fillies and mares going a two-turn 9 furlongs. Even in a six-horse field, trips matter when going a distance and we're going to reach out for price shot Holiday's Jewel (10-1).
Early in her career she showed good early speed but in recent recent races, she's been runing on well at the finish. Just can't trust any of the favorites here. The switch back to Lezcano makes her live in this spot.
Taking Holiday's Jewel to win at 8-1 or greater and keying her first and second in exactas with well placed/connected Scampering (7-5) and sharp speedster Natalie Victoria (5-1).
