Aqueduct Wednesday Highlight Horse: D. S. Boyd should appreciate the return to turf


>>Aqueduct | Race 9 | Wednesday April 13th | Post Time 5:44 EDT | Go To The TimeformUS PPs

The horse with the best proven turf form is probably Said No One Ever (#4), but he has never raced raced around two turns and must deal with a layoff. He can certainly win, but we believe there are more interesting options at better prices.

Randie’s Dream (#5) hasn’t shown much on dirt but has plenty of turf pedigree on his dam’s side, as a half-brother to turf winners J L Bernstein, My Jopia, and Giant Jo.

But our top selection is D. S. BOYD (#7).

He has raced on turf only once, but that start came against a significantly tougher group. Furthermore, his rider never gave him a chance that day, going four-wide around both turns. D. S. Boyd made a mild middle move coming to the top of the stretch before fading late. Despite his finishing 12th and last, Trakus data indicates that he actually maintained an average speed that was faster than the winner of the race, while traveling a ridiculous 101 feet farther than the horse that took the shortest way around.


Win:  7

Exacta Key Box:  7 with 4,5

  1. If there ever is a day for IRISH PRAYER it’s today. Runs with his knees under his chin, the dam,Multiple GS placed on the grass, couldn’t stand up on fast dirt. Her first foal won first time she tried the grass..with Aaron Gryder up quel coincidence. Dublin yet to have a winner on grass, but only 6 have tried. At least a mental Health wager indicated. Personally, I’m wagering that Maker had a plan, and this is it.
