Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Thursday December 29th


Race 6

Mastic (#4)

Gets a subtle trainer upgrade to Mitch Friedman.

Was pinned down inside on the worst part of the track in the stretch last time.

Has run plenty of speed figures that would make her competitive here.

8-1 on the morning line


Race 7

Cumberland River (#1)

Should have won last time after getting fouled in the last sixteenth of a mile.

Was green in that Gulfstream race, failing to change leads in the stretch.

Is one of the few runners with tactical speed in a paceless race.

9-5 on the morning line


Race 8

Bourbon Empire (#2)

Finished well against a decent field of stakes horses last time.

Is bred to stretch out in distance.

TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting he’ll get a fast pace to close into.

7-2 on the morning line
