Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Saturday, January 13th

Race 2: Cain Is Abel (#7)

Took plenty of money in his debut when bet down to 3-1.

Encountered trouble around the far turn of that race, having to steady and wait for room at multiple points.

Is bred to have talent as a half-brother to talented New York-bred Mr. Buff.

3-1 on ML


Race 5: Ostrolenka (#1)

Has a valid excuse for his poor last race, as it was run during a driving snowstorm.

Handled a sloppy surface back in July at Saratoga, so may be able to overcome a wet track here.

Can use his versatile running style to get the jump on the closers.

4-1 on ML


Race 7: Colorful Charades (#6)

Gets her first chance to compete in a dirt sprint since winning her debut at Saratoga as a 2-year-old.

Her pedigree is strongly geared towards sprinting on the dirt, so it’s not surprise she didn’t handle the turf recently.

Won her debut over a “good” track, so she should not be hindered by residual moisture in the surface here.

15-1 on ML​
