Aqueduct race 8 – #11 Manhattan Johnnie – may a extremely impressive debut, Saratoga esque in fact. It came over a sloppy track, but trainer thinks he will be even better on a fast track. His tour de force win was achieved while being eased in the final furlong. The 2nd place finisher dusted a very nice field recently too and looks like a nice KY Derby 2014 prospect, which makes this one even more attractive. I am very much looking forward to watching him run.
Also in race 3 – Rudy Rodriguez debuts Safari Samba, a 1/2 brother to one of his best former runners Agave Kiss who won her debut by a pole. This one has some quick works which is not Rudy’s style. With the switch back to Aqueduct, I’m thinking Rudy may ‘find the magic’ once again and win races in bunches. Might be worth a look.
The very best of luck.
