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.

Luck Be a Lady Today


Today's Aqueduct feature is a preliminary allowances for state-bred fillies going a mile on the turf. Almost anything can happen in this limited-winners event and Lunar's Lucky Lady (6-1) rates as good as the favorites and better than most.

She earned a good figure win over this course last year and showed improvement at today's distance this summer in Saratoga. Hindered by a slow pace in her last two starts but should receive a more favorable setup here. She's back in winning hands and Montalvo talented turf rider.

Taking Lunar's Lucky Lady to win at 4-1 or greater and an exacta box with the freshened Zellweger.
