AQUEDUCT #6 at 03:20 PM Eastern
Top Pick: #4 (STEVIE Q) (5-1) – NEW gelding raced evenly when debuting going a mile on the Aqueduct grass course Nov 28. He sold for $250,000 as a 2-year-old in training last March and trainer Chad Brown (28% second time out) switches him to the dirt (35%). The presence of leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr, is noted.
2nd Pick: #1 (Just Been Jammin) (4-1) – Well bred colt tired when debuting in a sprint at this level Dec 4 at Los Alamitos in California. With Bob Baffert at that time, 3-year-old makes his way east and runs off a private trainer change to Rudy Rodriguez. The leading man at this meet, he wins at a 26% rate with new arrivals. He’s breezed five times here since Jan 2 and $200K son of ‘Giant’s Causeway’ is a threat.
3rd Pick: #7 (Cadeyrn) (7-2) – Blinkers go this son of ‘Malibu Moon’ who has shown good early speed in all three appearances. Colt should be involved every step and is a win candidate.
4th Pick: #2 (Biaviian) (20-1) – Stretch-out sprinter has the rail and has picked up minor awards in two of his last three starts. May hold down a share at a very big price.
