Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Friday, February 15

Race 3: Dirty Bird (#1)

  • Despite finishing last behind tougher company, the 75 TimeformUS Speed Figure that she earned in her last start is among the highest in the field.
  • Is one of the few fillies who has proven her affinity for this route distance, whereas others may prefer to go shorter.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jeremiah Englehart is 32 for 57 (56 percent, $2.96 ROI) with horses dropping in claiming price by 50 percent and running back in less than 30 days on the dirt.

Race 7: Crimson Frost (#5)

  • Should appreciate getting back to the one-mile distance, at which she’s finished in the exacta in 6 of 9 starts.
  • Did not appreciate getting stuck inside behind tiring rivals in the Ladies, and is likely to be steered outside for the stretch run this time.
  • While the Pace Projector is not predicting a fast early tempo, it does indicate that speedy types Jump Ruler and Face It should square off on the lead.
