Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Saturday, November 17

Race 3: Tiznow’s Smile (#5)

  • Is in the best form of her career right now after struggling in weaker races for so long.
  • Ran better than it appears last time, as she was buried down inside while the top two finishers got the jump on her.
  • Has always been bred to be best going route distances, and is finally getting a chance to do so.

4-1 on ML

Race 5: Pink Sands (#3)

  • Got the wrong trip last time, as she was buried down inside in tight quarters while racing behind a very slow pace.
  • Ran very well two back on Sep. 15, closing behind Palladian Bridge, who just returned to win at this level.
  • Finally gets off the rail after having drawn in the inside post in two straight races.

8-1 on ML

Race 8: Inspector Lynley (#7)

  • Has proven that he handles turf courses with some give to them, and it won’t be anywhere near firm on Saturday.
  • His grinding style should be well-suited to this longer trip.
  • Is bred to handle the stretch-out in distance, since his dam is a half-sister to Rescue Squad, who was second in this race a few years back.
