She’ll Run Good, That’s a Promise


Today’s Aqueduct feature is a secondary allowances for fillies and mares sprinting six furlongs. The fastest filly by definition, Promise Me A Cat (5-2), one that has been tested in stakes company and is from a barn that’s an otherworldly 34% with returnees of 90 days or longer is going to be a very tough out.

Add to that the fact the filly seems to fit the race dynamics perfectly with a projected clear run at the early leaders from her outside slip, she’s working well and David Cohen, who does a lot of winning for David Jacobson, takes the call here.

Compelled to take Promise Me A Cat, no price restrictions, and keying her first and second in multiple exotics with Honest Gold (8-1), Flying Train (6-1) and Taconic Victory (5-1).

Right Way Corrigan?


Today’s featured eighth race at Aqueduct is a preliminary allowances/optional claiming going a mile on the winter track and it looks like a good spot to throw deep.

Based on excellent performance figures, top connections and race dynamics, Lubango (5-2) is a worthy favorite which will take a lot of catching and beating.

But it’s Joe Corrigan (15-1), coming off a Turf Decline Line with a favorable distance and surface switch and picks up the talented apprentice, Irad Ortiz.

Since his last, he’s come back to work out with purpose and owns enough tactical speed with inside position to put himself in this from the start. He’s won at the distance and over this surface.

Taking Joe Corrigan to win at 8-1 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite here.

Will the Pattern Repeat?


Originally we were going to look at the eighth race but since it’s scheduled on turf and likely to be switched to the main track, we will look at the third with a similar purse.

An allowance race for females going two turn mile on the winter track and in a return to that surface repeating the once-off-the-layup pattern, we’ll take the value offered on Royal Sighting (8-1),whose lifetime best on the Equiform scale came on this track, at this distance.

Betting Royal Sighting to win and place at 6-1 or greater.
