Horses in Focus At Aqueduct and Santa Anita on Sunday January 17th


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 4:

Malibu Stacy (#5)
Has earned speed figures in the 90s in two of her last three starts.
Was shuffled out of position in the early stages last time.
May be able to shake loose on the lead this time; repeat of race three back makes her tough.
7/2 on ML
Race 7:
Fire Alarm (#3)
Races first off the claim by Bruce Levine, who gets an 84 rating in that category.
Has kept good company and run fast speed figures in recent starts.
Debut on the inner track is better than it looks, since he was very wide the entire way.
3/1 on ML
Race 9:
Chief Assignment (#2)
Raced on the dead rail on December 26.
Ran a competitive speed figure two back when breaking his maiden against a field of comparable quality.
May get ignored in the wagering as the public focuses on dubious favorites.
5/1 on ML


Race 5:

Nardo, the 5 horse:

Has the fastest last-out speed figure in the field: an 89.

Training very well off the layoff.

Trainer gets 89 rating with this rider.

5-2 on ML.

Race 8:

Sooner Time, the 3 horse:

Earned competitive speed figure, a 69, despite wide trip at Los Al.

Trainer gets 94 rating with this rider.

She has trained well since her last race.

6-1 on ML.
