Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Thursday, November 7

Race 4: Somethingtotellyou (#5)

  • Was green and sluggish in the early stages of his debut, but was still running on across the wire.
  • Is bred to appreciate added ground as a son of a 9-furlong stakes winning dam.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Todd Pletcher is 38 for 124 (31%, $2.04 ROI) with second time starting maidens stretching out on dirt over the past 5 years.

Race 6: Beale Street (#8)

  • Showed some promise in her initial turf route last winter when finishing third behind the subsequently stakes-placed Dyna Passer.
  • Made a strong late rally from far back last time at Laurel, suggesting that added ground will benefit her.
  • Michael Matz gets a 100 TimeformUS Trainer Rating when teaming up with jockey Jose Vargas.

Race 8: Zip Drive (#2)

  • Should appreciate the turnback in distance given that her only win came sprinting on turf.
  • The 107 TimeformUS Speed Figure that she earned last time out is the highest in this field.
  • Is arguably facing a softer field this time than the one she met at Keeneland last out.
