Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Saturday, April 6

Race 6: Mind Control (#3)

  • Is getting some class relief out of the Gotham.
  • Should appreciate the slight turnback in distance to 7 furlongs.
  • Ignoring the Breeders’ Cup, he has improved with each career start and will beat this field if he steps forward again.

2-1 on ML


Race 7: Monongahela (#3)

  • Had been in the best form of his career for his prior trainer.
  • Jason Servis usually improves horses like this after they spend more time in his barn, so I expect a forward move.
  • Will have no trouble handling the 1 1/8 miles in a race where you can question the stamina of others.

5-2 on ML


Race 8: Off Topic (#3)

  • Should have no trouble handling the distance given her stamina-oriented pedigree and tall frame.
  • Ran better than it seems when she broke her maiden two back after a ridiculously wide trip.
  • Motion Emotion, who defeated her at Oaklawn last time, is better than any of the rivals she faces here.

5-1 on ML


Race 10: Final Jeopardy (#5)

  • Is bred to handle two turns and has the physicality of a horse that should improve with added distance.
  • Won that allowance race at Gulfstream in commanding fashion while showing a new dimension to his running style.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will get a fast pace to close into.

8-1 on ML
