Saturday March 29 – Aqueduct Top Play
Scheduled Local Post Time – 3:16pm ET
Let’s play the longest shot on the board in the 5th race at Aqueduct.
#2 Gloria Victoria (8-1 ML) may not be the longest shot when the gates open, but she will likely be a good price, and she sure looks as if she is moving in the right direction. In her eight career starts, her only off-the-board finish was the one time she tried turf. She has the fastest last-out speed figure in the field, and her numbers are those of a filly who is improving each and every time she enters the starting gate.
Will we get 8-1? No, probably not, but if we get at least half of that price, we will pounce.
#5 Hot Splash (5-1 ML) is another one who seems to be finding her best form and who should be used in exotics.
The favorite, #6 Lunar Surge, is probably the fastest mare overall, but with her running style, she seems a good bet to come up short as she usually does.
The Wager: #2 Gloria Victoria to win. Use #5 and #6 in exotics underneath our choice, and add a small saver exacta: 5 over 6.
