Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Friday, January 4

Race 1: Fancy That (#3)

  • Faced a tougher field in her Saratoga debut, in which she stayed on well to be fifth.
  • Is bred to improve with added distance as a full-sister to graded stakes-placed router Sara Street.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Kiaran McLaughlin is 5 for 18 (28 percent, $2.96 ROI) with second time starting maidens going from sprints to routes on dirt at Aqueduct.

Race 2: Pulsate (#5)

  • The 102 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned last time out is tied for the highest number in the field.
  • Ran better than it seems last time after getting shuffled back on the turn and racing on what may have been a dead rail.
  • Should appreciate the slight turnback in distance.

Race 7: Singapore Trader (#6)

  • Has been in the best form of his career lately, earning a speed figure last time out that makes him competitive with the favorite.
  • Handled this 9-furlong distance when a solid third in the Albany during the summer.
  • Should work out a good stalking trip in a race that does not feature much early speed.
