Aqueduct Horses in Focus for Thursday, November 21

Race 3: Five Alarm Robin (#4)

  • Earned a series of competitive speed figures when facing tough fields at the maiden special weight level.
  • Had trouble two back when initially dropped in for a tag and ran better than it appears.
  • It’s a good sign that she’s confidently stepped back up in class into a protected spot.

7-2 on ML

Race 4: Jake Rocks (#6)

  • Appears to have improved since returning this summer as a 3-year-old.
  • Has pedigree to handle turf, being by 18% turf sire New Year’s Day out of a dam who has produced a turf winner.
  • Worked an impressive quarter mile in 20 4/5 seconds over the synthetic track at OBS as a 2-year-old, sometimes an indicator of turf ability.

10-1 on ML

Race 6: Saratoga Colonel (#3)

  • Comes out of a race that may be stronger than it appears, as both the second and third-place finishers have returned to run well.
  • His last start was his first turf effort with the blinkers, and he ran the best race of his career.
  • George Weaver is being realistic in starting him for a tag, given that it’s the end of the turf season.

8-1 on ML
