I’ve Made My Decision

Today's Big A feature as a preliminary allowances/optional claimer going as the 6th race at 11 furlongs on the turf. Yes, another crapshoot "jockey's race." [If it weren't the feature we would pass].

Alas, the event boasts a classy marathoner with perceptible soundness issues, Zhivago (4-1), Unitarian (3-1), the in-form favorite from Team Pletcher/Castellano (3-1), and the possible trip-sitting Ampersand (9-2) with Rosario.

Instead, we'll be landing on Make a Decision (6-1) from the resurgent Linda Rice barn, a multiple allowance winning state-bred that sneaks into this re: the restricted "other than state-bred" language. A late developing 3YO, he seeks his third straight win beneath regular partner and stable rider, Cornelio Velasquez, his second without a defeat on Aqueduct turf, and sporting a pedigree that runs all day long.

Taking Making a Decision to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing first and second in the multiples with his rivals listed above.
