Class Spells Upset in Big A Turf Feature


Interesting turf feature at Aqueduct going as the seventh race, a secondary allowances for 3YOs and upward with lots of ways to go.

She's also cycling back to her best Energy Figure three starts back and she won her only start on this course.

Taking Selenite to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing her first and second in exactas with live ship-in price shot Principessa Ava (8-1) and Little Journey (5-1), the perceived longer half of the uncoupled Chad entry,

Knocking Off the Favorites


Today's Aqueduct feature is a preliminary allowances sprint going 6 furlongs for 3YO and up.

With no shortage of speed in this contest, with Jimmy Jerkens 29% strike rate in LAY 3 scenarios and with his late developing 4YO coming off a New Pace Top going longer, the turnback and race shape clearly suits Knockher Off (5-1).

Taking Knocker Off to win at 4-1 or greater and key boxing him first and second with the speedy Big Guy Ian (2-1) and Dyker Beach (8-5) from the white hot Jacobson barn.

Blacktype to Make His Mark in Big A Feature


Today's featured 7th at Aqueduct is a secondary/allowances/optional claimer in which Blacktype (3-1), who missed his chance to get some in his U.S. in the G3 Hill Prince, will appreciate dropping into.

The lost was not entirely his fault, as he could not take advantage of his position from about mid-turn to the quarter pole; in short, he never had a chance [see replay]. Depite the trip, he earned an Energy Figure that puts him with the best in here,

Clement brought him back 11 days later for a strong hlf-mile work, a good sign that all is well, and he's worked with purpose subsequently.

He's found a spot with enough pace to set the table and his draw should enable new rider, Irad Ortiz, to get winning position in the clear.

Taking Bkacktype to win, no price restrictions, and key-bosing exactas with another class dropper, Charge Now (12-1), and live ship-in Brickyard Kitten (10-1).
