Horses in Focus At Aqueduct and Santa Anita on Thursday January 14th


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.


Race 7:

Captain Moss (#3)

Projected to be contesting the pace in a situation favoring horses on or near the lead.

His two wins were accomplished in wire-to-wire fashion.
Was done in by a four-wide trip last time; may be in better form than it appears.
10/1 on ML
Race 8: 

Making Havoc (#6)
Should be in closest attendance to the pacesetter in a situation favoring horses near the lead.
Is dropping out of a tougher race, in which she earned a competitive speed figure.
Coming off a wide trip, may be set for better here.
8/1 on ML
Race 9:

File for Divorce (#9)
Ran better than it appears on a few occasions last year.
Fits well at this level and does his best work sprinting.
Gets a trainer upgrade to Ralph D’Alessandro and a rider upgrade to Chris Decarlo.
20/1 on ML
