Sunday at Aqueduct

Race 3:  Allowance N1X at 5 1/2 furlongs The connections of Carried Interest (#5) have experimented with rating him in behind horses in each of his last two starts and the results have been mixed. Today he should receive a much more straightforward trip stalking just outside of the two clear speeds, Abra and Seeker.  …

Thursday at Belmont

Belmont, Race 1:  Starter Optional Claiming $25,000 at six furlongs on the turf I think Tightend Touchdown (#2) is a very likely winner of this race, but as much as I’m looking forward to betting him I’m equally interested in wagering against Magical Season.  He’s just going to be a much shorter price than he …

Sunday at Belmont

Belmont, Race 1:  Claiming $20,000B at six furlongs There should be at least a legitimate pace here with Shotgun City, Induce, and Poised to a Tee all likely to show speed.  The closer that I feel is most likely to benefit from a contested pace is my old friend, Buckeye Heart (#4).  That scenario did …

Saturday at Aqueduct; Buckeye Heart Recap

Let’s start off with Buckeye Heart’s race today.  I really liked him in this spot, so I was a bit disappointed that he couldn’t get the job done.  However, I still feel like there is an opportunity to make money with this horse so I’m going to keep him on the list for now. Buckeye …

Buckeye Heart Entered Today

Well, my first “Horse To Watch” has been entered back! Buckeye Heart is running in today’s fourth race at Aqueduct just 8 days after his debut for new trainer Dominic Galluscio.  Today’s race sees him stepping up to a $35,000 maiden claimer and racing with the addition of blinkers and a new rider in Cornelio …
