Sunday 02-19-17

Aqueduct, Race 9.  Post Time 4:50pm

$100,000 Franklin Square Stakes

6F on the Inner Dirt Course, For 3 year old Fillies

Pace Factor

The pace seems to be very hot. The favorite #9 Maple Mo (ML 2-1) seems to be the truest of speeds. Expect speed from the second choice #2 Bluegrass Flag (ML 3-1). Seems as though she must go to keep position. The #5, #6, and #10 all seem as though they will try and be right on or close to the lead as well.

Key Percentages

#2 Bluegrass Flag (ML 3-1)…Jockey winning percentage of 23%

#3 Out of Trouble (ML 10-1)…Jockey winning percentage of 18%. Trainer is 19%.

#7 Overnegotiate  (ML 5-1)…Jockey winning percentage is 21%. Trainer is 17%.

Recent Trends

#9 Maple Mo (ML 2-1)…Broke her maiden second time out. Very impressive winning by 4 lengths.

#4 Toni Tools (ML 6-1)…Has 3 wins and a second in last 4 starts.

#2 Bluegrass Flag (ML 3-1)…Owns the highest beyer figure in the field. Broke her maiden wire to wire last time out.


Overall View

There are a lot of views you could take here. The first view being that the two favorites look to be much the best and it could be a 2 horse race as soon as they open the gate. Another view is that those 2 favorites, along with others, could really punish one another and set it up for maybe the #4 Toni Tools (ML 6-1) or #7 Overnegotiate (ML 5-1). Very interested to see what plays out.
