Key Races & Bets for Saturday January 22, 2022

Race 6 at Aqueduct - Post Time 2:48 PM Eastern Win contenders are Moonachie, South Sea and Mi Tres Por Ciento. Horses to be considered for second on exacta tickets are Summer Bourbon, Gran Casique and Speeding Kid. Moonachie runs first off the claim by Vasquez, hitting at a VERY high rate so far at the meeting with seven wins from 19 starts. The key here is in spite of being off for almost five months off the $12,500 claim, Moonachie is raised to the $16K level. That’s because his last race at Aqueduct, [...]

Limehouse Stakes - Race 7 at Gulfstream Park - Post Time 3:05 PM Eastern Bueno Bueno returns from five months off and won two in a row before the rest, the second of the pair on turf and the first on dirt. Both were sprints and he was on an improving pattern at the time which I expect to continue. As a fresh horse there’s little doubt he’s going to go for the lead from the start under Saez, and that’s the key to controlling the pace and winning this race If Bueno Bueno [...]

Remsen Stakes - Race 8 at Aqueduct - Post Time 3:14 PM Eastern The two horses with the highest probability to win are likely to be the two favorites near post time – Zandon and Mo Donegal. That doesn’t mean the race isn’t playable and certainly since it kicks off a late pick 3, with some nice profit opportunities in the next two races this race takes on added significance. Zandon won his only start, on 10/9 at Belmont, showing a lot of maturity when rallying from fourth to win going away after hitting [...]

The 2021 Grade 3 Red Smith

There is not a lot of pace on paper, but at least the Red Smith, a long time NY turf marathon, has two horses with some early gas set to run. We all get frustrated by these turf races where all the riders seem to sit back and let one horse gallop around. In this one at least we have the possibility of Tide of the Sea keeping Channel Cat somewhat honest on the front creating a level field. We’ll see, it doesn’t always work out how it looks on paper. Tide of the [...]

Key Races & Bets for Saturday November 20, 2021

Red Smith Stakes - Race 9 at Aqueduct - Post Time 3:45 PM Eastern Given there are knocks with the horses likely to be favored by bettors, such as Soldier Rising, who has yet to win in three U.S. starts, particularly when as the eight to five favorite last month in the Hill Prince Stakes, and with Tide of the Sea, who won the Japan Turf Cup takes in October but was beaten as the seven to five favorite last month in the Point of Entry Stakes, I’ll go with Price Talk to win [...]
