Ricky’s Rockets kicked off a great week of racing from Aqueduct on Thursday afternoon. Can we make it two days in a row? Let’s throw Del Mar into the mix as we have you covered across the country!
Also included below: my 10-race preview of Churchill Downs and 9-race preview of Del Mar.
Best of luck!
Race 6: Allowance for New York-bred for 3-year-olds and upward going 1 mile (8 furlongs) on the dirt
#2 Blackjack Davey has taken money in all of his starts, but it’s possible he he may just not be that good. In regards to this race, drawing towards the inside may be a good thing for him where he can get situated early on, and now find traffic trouble. #10 Farragut has been respectable in his two races at this level but he may be best suited going shorter. His speed figures match up nicely compared to the rest of this group.
Race 7: Allowance for 3-year-olds and upward going 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt
#2 Adare fared well in his first start in New York on October 9 for Neil Drysdale. The reason for him coming to the east coast is unknown, but he looks to be a deserving favorite as Joel Rosario gets aboard again for the second straight start.
Race 8: $62,500 Allowance Optional Claiming for 3-year-olds and upward going 1 1/8 miles (9 furlongs) on the inner turf
TURF RUNNERS HAVE BEEN SCRATCHED! WILL BE USING: #10 Ekhtibaar, #13 Winston’s Chance, #14 Backsideofthemoon and #15 Expert.
Race 9: $16,000 Claiming for 3-year-olds and upward going 7 furlongs on the dirt
#2 Square Shooter dropped down to the $25,000 level in his last start where he finished sixth by less than 3 lengths. His best form is behind him with only one win since the beginning of 2019, but can he go any lower than this spot? #7 Shamrocked looks good on paper, and has speed that would compliment his last race. Breaking toward the outside should suit him well as he looks for his first win in 2020. Kendrick Carmouche gets aboard who is winning at 33% in the first week at the meet.
$3 Pick 4 (Races 6-9) 2,10 / 2 / 10,13,14,15 / 2,7 – $48
