Race 8: 4th@ 2.20/1
Race 9: 10th& 3.50/1
In Race 3, Perceived never lifted a hoof finishing well behind the winner. Bad pick on my part. I had a feeling Baby Yoda would be fraudulent here at odds on and Morello was in good stalking position to upset but he was flat to the boards turning for home and instead it was 42/1 Double Crown springing the upset. In Race 8 Glass Ceiling lost the race at the break breaking three lengths behind the field and was only able to muster a mild bid. Trainer Charlie Baker’s bad luck streak continues. In Race 9, Meraas gunned to the lead but wasn’t able to hold off the charge of closers backing up in the drive.
With the 2022 Breeder’s Cup coming up this weekend this is the perfect opportunity to relive some classic moments from the Breeders Cup Classic. Our first installment is the 1989 Breeders Cup Classic which featured a showdown between arch rivals Sunday Silence and Easy Goer. Enjoy!
Despite a tough week so far let’s wrap up a very profitable month of October with New York Bred Day at Aqueduct! We’re expecting fast and firm conditions beneath partly cloudy skies with chilly temperatures. Let’s get to it!
Belmont at Aqueduct:
Race 10: Jackson Heights - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 8/1)
The Sleepy Hollow is at a mile on dirt for two year old colts and geldings and drew a fun field with a pretty even number of speeds, stalkers and closers. I’m not sure horses like Arctic Arrogance or Canarsie want to go this far and both possess enough early speed to set the table for a closer. Jackson Heights began his career racing on turf, a surface he’s bred for on his dam’s side but he didn’t show much. In his third start he caught a sloppy track and ran an improved effort finishing third. Last time out his connections showed confidence to enter him as a maiden in the Bertram F. Bongard Stakes and he raced near the back of the pack before gobbling up his rivals to win going away at 24/1 odds. I predict a similar pace scenario today and at 8/1 odds with two more workouts under his belt I think he’ll be a handful.
Wishing our members the very best of luck on all of Sunday’s races from Aqueduct !
