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. We offer expanded analysis on one of the Horses in Focus, as well as designating which horse is our Top Play on the day. Expect to see TimeformUS Horses in Focus on this blog typically 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.
Today’s Top Play at Aqueduct
#1 Money Machine
Drops back down after trying very tough $50k claimer last time, and gets a positive rider change for this.
First start for Jacobson off the layoff was a good effort with a less-than-ideal trip.
Makes 3rd start off layoff today.
5/1 on ML.
Win bet on #1 Money Machine at 4/1 or better.
#1 Broadway Bay
Was showing nice development last summer, improving his TFUS Speed Figures from start to start (65-70-80) before trying to stretch out.
Won 2nd career start after putting in a good late run in debut.
Returned from the layoff last time to put in a strong late run & gallop out, and now makes second start back.
12/1 on ML.
Today’s Horses in Focus at Santa Anita
Toomanytomatoes, the 6 horse:
Has fastest last-out dirt speed figure in the field.
Visually impressive in last start.
Has handled this distance.
6-1 on ML.
Coded Message, the 10 horse:
Broke poorly in debut and then ran only in spots.
Still managed to finish second.
Came back to train decently and gets better post today.
7-2 on ML.
