Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Sunday, December 9

Race 5: Cariba (#3)

  • Was very green in her debut, attempting to lug in throughout the stretch drive.
  • Had trained well prior to her first start, and has a right to do much better with that experience under her belt.
  • Kiaran McLaughlin gets a 94 TimeformUS Trainer Rating with second time starters, as opposed to his 57 Rating with firsters.

7-2 on ML


Race 6: Beachside (#1)

  • Has already handled this one mile distance, which is a question that the favorite still has to answer.
  • Ran better than it appears in his dirt sprints, and relished the stretch-out to a mile last time.
  • Was flattered when Not That Brady, whom he beat last time, returned to win impressively on Saturday.

9-5 on ML


Race 7: Bon Raison (#5)

  • The TimeformUS Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.
  • Handled this 9-furlong distance at Saratoga.
  • Gets needed class relief after getting placed too ambitiously against graded stakes company in his recent starts.

9-2 on ML
