Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Thursday January 5th


Race 1

Carolina Courage (#4)

Only finished four lengths behind Thursday’s favorite despite encountering trouble two back.

May have disliked the wet track last time.

Is a half-sister to Night Madam, who won her maiden going two turns on the inner track.

4-1 on ML

Race 4

Quien Sabe (#3)

Ran into eventual Albany Stakes winner Hit It Once More in his only dirt route.

Was against a slow pace (color-coded blue in TimeformUS PPs) in that April 14 race.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Mark Hennig is 5 for 15 (33 percent) with a $2.32 return on investment with horses going from sprints to dirt routes in maiden claiming races.

6-1 on ML

Race 5

Tiz Rae Anna (#2)

Stumbled and was squeezed back at the start last time, placing her out of position early.

Was blocked for nearly the entire stretch drive in that most recent start.

Is the only horse fast enough to challenge favored Liz’s Cable Girl.

4-1 on ML
