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
Didn’t pan out as a Derby prospect, but still believe he’s going to be a better horse over shorter distances on dirt.
Lone win came in last start around one turn on dirt, and he earned his top TFUS Speed Figure the last time he went this distance on dirt, which came in his second career start as a 2yo.
Returns as a new gelding for Pletcher, who gets a 92 Trainer Rating off of layoffs.
5/1 on ML.
Win bet on #7 Harpoon.
Exactas with #2 Brass Pear, #6 Round, and #8 Leilani’s Ticket.
