Saturday’s Race Recap from Aqueduct:
(All odds US)
Race 6: 1st@ 1.70/1 - BEST BET 💥💥
Race 9: 9th@ 50.20/1
In Race 6, I LOVED Tapit Trice as our BEST BET and he had to grind out a win over the Brad Cox trained Slip Mahoney but grind he did. This two-year-old son of Tapit has a bright future and I look forward to seeing him on the Kentucky Derby trail next year. In Race 9 we took a shot with Incantation making his debut and he was well back early and actually came with a little bit of a run wide before flattening out late at 50/1 odds.
Saturday’s Race Recap from Gulfstream Park:
(All odds US)
Race 8: 2nd@ 6.20/1
Race 10: 5th@ 13.60/1
In Race 8 our first time starter Archangelo (which the announcer annoyingly kept calling “Arc-Ann-JELLO” for some reason) (I think it’s supposed to be “Arc-ANNN-Jello” like maybe “archangel” in Italian) broke poorly over the sloppy track but progressed nicely and was gaining on the winner at the end. We had to settle for a 6/1 second place finish. In Race 10, the sloppy, speed favoring track spelled doom for late closing Celestial Glaze as he was only able to muster up a mild rally. We spotted the fraudulent odds on favorite Nitrous Channel and he lost as we had thought, but unfortunately we weren’t able to capitalize.
With all the rain at Gulfstream we’re going to move our tack to Aqueduct to close out the week. Fast conditions are expected. Let’s get to work!
Sunday at Aqueduct:
Race 10: Ukrainian Princess - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 10/1)
Two-year-old maiden claiming fillies sprint 6 furlongs as we close out the week as well as any Aqueduct racing til Dec. 29. Our 3/1 morning line favorite ships in from Delaware Park where she’s run some very average looking races against weaker competition. I like Ukrainian Princess, who debuts here for trainer Bruce Levine. A Tomlinson of 449, which is super high, tells us she’s perfectly bred for the distance. She will have to navigate a trip from the outside but there doesn’t look like much in here and Levine debuts winners in maiden claimers 21% of the time. Worth taking the longshot chance vs. a suspect field.
Best of luck to all our members closing out the week at Aqueduct!
