Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Sunday, February 17

Race 2: Flatexcel (#4)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the lead early, and inside speed has been very dangerous recently.
  • The added distance should be no problem since he broke his maiden around two turns as a younger horse.
  • Will appreciate getting back on a fast track.

12-1 on ML


Race 4: Carthon (#3)

  • May appreciate the stretch-out to 1 1/8 miles, since he has a grinding style that makes him well suited to more distance.
  • Usually is an overlay and will offer value in the face of the heavily favored entry.
  • Eric Cancel rides this horse very well and will aggressively attempt to make the lead over a track that has been kind to inside speed.

9-2 on ML


Race 7: Syndergaard (#2)

  • Ran an exceptional race in the Say Florida Sandy, contesting an honest pace and earning a 119 TimeformUS Speed Figure.
  • Should handle the stretch-out to a mile, since he ran one of the best races of his career in the Champagne as a 2-year-old.
  • Possesses the speed to secure a forward inside position.

3-1 on ML
