Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Saturday, January 12

Race 2: Sandy Belle (#5)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting a situation favoring horses on the front end, and she is quick enough to make the lead.
  • Hopped at the start last time, which cost her any chance she might have had.
  • Her overall wet track record belies the fact that she strongly prefers a harrowed surface.

Race 3: Dark N Cloudy (#5)

  • Earned a 109 TimeformUS Speed Figure last time, which compares favorably to the best numbers earned by main rival Missle Bomb.
  • Should appreciate the turnback in distance after getting tired in the late stages.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jason Servis is 29 for 101 (29 percent, $2.23 ROI) with horses going from routes to sprints on dirt.

Race 7: Wine Not (#3)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting he will get a fast pace to close into.
  • Runs his best races at one mile, having finished in the exacta in 5 of his 6 starts at that distance.
  • Has deceptively been in very strong form since the summer, even though he’s yet to win a race this year.

8-1 on ML

Race 8: Celtic Chaos (#6)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting he will finally get a fast pace to close into after encountering a few slow paces this year.
  • Seven furlongs is arguably his best distance.
  • Showed two back in the Hudson that he can compete against favored Gold for the King.

5-1 on ML
