Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Saturday, November 24

Race 5: Bernardino (#3)

  • Had worked well prior to his debut and ran better than his final finishing position suggests.
  • Despite being up against a slow pace, he ran the fastest final quarter mile of all in his debut after getting held up early.
  • Is bred to be a decent turf horse as a half-brother to turf winners Manofffire and Given Fire.

Race 8: Identity Politics (#3)

  • Earned a competitive 110 TimeformUS Speed Figure when winning his maiden last time.
  • Appeared to handle dirt very well in that recent win, making a sweeping last-to-first move off the far turn.
  • Is more reliable than his main competitors, who both come with some flaws.

Race 9: Lady Montdore (#2)

  • Ran very well in both of her prior starts at this distance at Saratoga.
  • Never appeared to be quite as comfortable stalking the pace at Belmont last time.
  • Should play out as the controlling speed in a race lacking any confirmed front-runners.

7-2 on ML
