Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Wednesday, April 17

Race 3: Americano (#2)

  • Was facing a significantly tougher field in his only prior turf start.
  • Is bred to handle this surface as a son of the classy turf/synthetic-specialist Moment of Majesty.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the early lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.

Race 7: Catch a Cab (#4)

  • Assuming favored Dowse’s Beach’s form continues to decline, this is the fastest horse in this field.
  • Briefly lost momentum while trying to split horses in the stretch last time.
  • Is likely to be an overlay as he returns from the layoff.

Race 9: Annette’s Humor (#4)

  • Has raced competitively in her recent starts, which is more than the others can claim.
  • Is bred to handle this surface switch, since there is significant turf pedigree on her dam’s side.
  • Could play out as the controlling speed in a race that lacks any confirmed front-runners.
