1 3/16 M Turf
Allowance Optional Claiming
The pace of the race should be set by #6 Iggy Loco (ML 20-1). The horses taking stalking roles should be #5 Bow Tie Affair (ML 20-1) and #3 Alter Boy (ML 8-1). The horses that have shown closing speed are #1 Astounding (ML 5-1) and #2 Not in Charge (ML 5-2).
#7 Focus Group (ML 7-2) … Listed is winning at a 17% clip.
#5 Bow Tie Affair (ML 20-1)… only horse in the field who has run at Aqueduct before.
A short field for a turf route race and there is a ton of closing speed in the race. Iggy Loco should have a free trip to the lead without much pressure getting there. Not in Charge is one of the ML favorites and this horse has shown it can win from just off the pace like last time out or closing late in a race like two races back. Not in Charge has run in the money twice at the distance. Shahroze is also a ML favorite with Javier up. The horse won at a great price in a maiden 90 last time out and Graham Motion looks for his third win of the meet. Javier has done well on the turf this year but the horse can’t be to many lengths off the leaders or it will not win the race
