Hand-selected by The TimeformUS team, Horses in Focus stand out on our feature sets, such as pace projector, TimeformUS speed figures, spotlight ratings, trainer ratings, pedigree ratings, etc. Expect to see TimeformUS Horses in Focus on this blog every Wednesday-Sunday. If Horses in Focus are available for tracks with a later post-time, they will be added to this post throughout the day.
Aqueduct Race 3:
Projects for good tracking trip in behind the leader.
Improved form for this barn, with 2 wins, and all 3 losses were when unable to catch front-running winners.
We find the three favorites on the ML to be suspect.
6/1 on ML.
Aqueduct Race 9:
#11 Four Directions
Expecting improvement as he makes third career start for solid barn.
Lost all chance on March 16 after getting bumped and then shuffled back while winner rolled along on a gold rail.
Has finished strongly in both career starts.
8/1 on ML.
Santa Anita Race 3:
Fifteen Black, the 9 horse:
Pace Projector puts him on early lead.
Appreciate cutback in distance.
Recent speed figures fit nicely in here.
7-2 on ML.
Santa Anita Race 10:
Kukaluka, the 5 horse:
Filly gets in light.
Pace Projector shows her far back early in race projected to have fast pace.
Received terrible trip in last race.
15-1 on ML.
Santa Anita Race 11:
Southern Sunrise, the 1 horse:
Pace Projector puts him just off the early lead in race projected to favor speed.
Last-out speed figure of 97 hits very hard in here.
Has strong back-figures and goes 2nd off the layoff today.
2-1 on ML.
