Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Sunday, March 17

Race 2: Eddy Dirt (#2)

  • Raced greenly soon after the start in his debut, taking himself out of contention in the opening furlongs.
  • Was running fastest of all through the lane, achieving a final eighth clocking that was over a second faster than any other horse in the field.
  • The switch to leading rider Manny Franco suggests that the barn expects a better effort this time.

Race 7: Flatexcel (#7)

  • Will appreciate the turnback in distance to his ideal 6-furlong trip.
  • Puts blinkers back on after changing his running style and performing poorly without them.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.

Race 8: Speightful Kitten (#2)

  • Was unwisely rated last time in a spot where he could have been the primary speed.
  • The 116 TimeformUS Speed Figure that he earned two back suggests that he’s fast enough to beat likely favorite Ready to Escape.
  • Projects to sit a good trip stalking a speed duel up front.
