Aqueduct Friday Highlight Horse: Time Squared to Circle the Field

Votre Coeur (#7) was an even third in her sloppy track debut, but we get the feeling that this stretch-out in distance is going to benefit her. She is by decent route sire Flatter and gets plenty of stamina from her dam’s side. Chad Brown certainly knows how to improve a second-time starter on the dirt, and she’s a deserving favorite.

We could say similar things about fellow stretch-out Bahnahno (#5), who figures to go off at a much higher price. She was pretty sluggish through the opening furlongs of her sprint debut but did do a bit of running through the stretch. Her dam was a multiple stakes-winning router, so she figures to appreciate this stretch-out in distance.

While we’ll use both of those fillies, our top pick is TIME SQUARED (#3).

Unlike so many others in this field, Time Squared already has positive dirt-route experience. She was well-beaten by the highly regarded Katniss the Victor in  her initial two-turn attempt, but took a significant step forward last time. Racing wide around both turns, she gave away a ton of ground to the pair of runners that beat her, but nevertheless finished up strongly through the lane to be a fast-finishing third. With stretching-out sprinters, along with the speedy Lilikoi (#6), entered in this race, Time Squared figures to get enough pace to set up her late run. If she repeats that effort here, we believe she’ll be tough to beat.
