Race 3: Pretentious (#6)

  • Has improved since being claimed and stretched out to a mile.
  • Did well to overcome a slow pace last time while closing against arguably tougher company.
  • Mertkan Kanarmaci’s horses have been running surprisingly well during the past month.

Race 6: Playwright (#3)

  • Was steadied on the far turn last time and did well to rally for second thereafter.
  • A one-turn mile is his best distance, having earned both of his career victories at this trip.
  • The Danny Gargan barn has started to pick up steam in the last month.

Race 8: Blindwillie McTell (#6)

  • Chased home a very talented horse in Le General last time while finishing well clear of the rest.
  • Should work out a good trip from off the pace in a race that is predicted to feature a fast pace.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Linda Rice is 20 for 49 (41 percent, $3.26 ROI) with second time starting maidens in dirt sprints at Aqueduct.
