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 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.
Sugar Gold (#6)
John Toscano gets a 96 trainer rating moving horses up in class by 50% or more.
Should appreciate stretching back out around two turns.
Goes first off the claim for a trainer who gets a 77 rating in that category.
5/2 on ML
Jcs American Dream (#2)
Has spent much of the year racing in stakes company and finds an easier spot here.
Loves Aqueduct’s inner track and ran her best races here last year.
Should be a big price in a race where the favorites look a little vulnerable.
20/1 on ML
Came back in a tough spot last time, may have needed the race.
Her sprints from last winter are as fast as what favored Ticky Zippy has been running.
Versatile enough to contest the lead or stalk the pace.
8/1 on ML
Feisty’s Cause, the 3 horse:
Pace Projector shows him on a clear early lead in a race favoring speed.
Ran strong speed figure of 104 on grass.
Handles dirt just fine.
6-1 on ML.
Time to Go Robo, the 3 horse:
Just ran competitive speed figure of 89 on synthetic.
Has run well at Los Al.
Dropping in class according to our Race Ratings.
20-1 on ML.
