Most Likely Winner: (Race 4: Full Moon Fever #1, 9/2):

To say that this gelding by Effinex was involved in a “troubled trip” last time out, would be an understatement. He was jostled around so much, it looked like a Pachinko machine in a parlor in Queens. Mark Hennig used this time to assess the situation, and I am sure he understood that this runner needed another chance. With the expert riding ability of Dylan Davis, he should have a much better chance, if he can exit the gate without incident …

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #1


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 9: Menily #2, 12/1):

If you are after a price play on this Sunday Aqueduct card, then do not miss Ray Handal’s second-out runner by Malibu Moon. She is well-meant, and I like the idea of putting her on the turf for the 1st time. She will be stretching out to 2-turns, but I know first-hand that her workout on 26 March went well. After seeing Handal’s workout regime, he really does things properly. What a price this one is going to be … If rider Jalon Samuel can get her to settle early, then she has a great chance of getting to the winner’s circle at a significant price. In Handal … we trust …

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS #2 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 8: Dirt, 1 1/8th, Top Flight Invitational S., $100k, F&M 4+):

To say this race is “interesting” doesn’t quite pass muster … it is downright salty, and should be a superb betting race. Maybe one of the best of the weekend at Aqueduct … I am pretty interested in the Falcone Barn’s Maiden Beauty #2. This mare by Revolutionary has 36 starts to her credit, and over $643k in earnings. She still has zip in her fastball, and I would not count out Kendrick Carmouche, who is her regular pilot. If she gets loose on the lead, then she can be pretty destructive. This 6-yr-old likes to control the fractions, and she has the class to back up any argument. An antidote to her frontend power is the Godolphin homebred right next door. Bill Mott’s Frost Point #3 is well-bred, and she has some late gears. Her HOF trainer has brought her along steadily, and she will be dipping her hooves in the “Non-G” pool for the 1st time. The “Boys in Blue” make excellent choices when it comes to investments in breeding, and we will see how Manny Franco handles her for the 1st time. Another entry that will take money is Rob Atras’ Battle Bling #5. Since the Vancouver (AUS) filly was claimed from Danny Gargan, she has really accelerated her game in a pair of tough “Non-G” races. The able-bodied Trevor McCarthy gets the call once again, and he can be a bulldog when it counts. As far as a top selection, I am most intrigued by the tactical power of Jonathan Thomas’ Into Vanishing #4. To my eye, this filly by Into Mischief says “win bet.” She can rate, ran nicely in the Royal Delta (G3) at Gulfstream Park against Letruska, and has an attempt on this surface at “The Big A.” Eric Cancel has his best chance to visit the winner’s circle with this one … probably my “best bet” on the Sunday card. Here is the play …

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Trifecta Wheel, 4 w 2/3/5 w 2/3/5


Enjoy some racing from the “Big A!” Best of luck on another run at Aqueduct! Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter … Horseracing_USA !!!
