Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Friday, December 21

Race 3: Simona (#8)

  • Has ben facing subtly tougher company in her recent starts.
  • Her last race is not quite as poor as it seems, as she had to duel inside in a race that was dominated by outside runners.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Rudy Rodriguez is 15 for 68 (22 percent, $3.21 ROI) second off the claim on dirt with horses that were out of the money first off the claim.

Race 6: Accabonac Harbor (#10)

  • Is better bred for dirt than turf, so should appreciate this surface switch.
  • Gets a needed drop in class after facing tougher in her debut.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Chris Englehart is 7 for 14 (50 percent, $5.00 ROI) with maidens switching from turf to dirt sprints at NYRA.
