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
#4 Live Love Laugh
Good effort two back when 4-wide all through the turn and staying on gamely late vs. a much tougher field (Race Rating 87, vs. today’s 73).
Earned competitive TFUS Speed Figure of 82 for that effort.
Faced tougher when last seen on Cigar Mile Day, as well, and wound up away from that gold rail all the way.
3/1 on ML.
Win bet on #4 and press her in multi-race wagers.
