Friday at Aqueduct

Ahh, the beauty of the internet.  From a West coast nibble, we surf to the East coast to try our handicapping hand.  On this Friday we look at a highly competitive feature at the "Big A".

Aqueduct Race 8 {1 mile~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Optional Claiming}
A very closely matched group of eight will step onto the course for this race.  All of these gals can pop a good one and take the victory.  There will be speed, pressers and trackers looking to cover the course well.

#4 EZ Passer (Alvarado / Englehart) might have a slight edge with the highest speed number at the distance.  She holds the second highest last out speed number and one stout workout.  This gal will battle on the front end with a marvelous 88% in the money record over nine races at this distance.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#3 Island School (I. Ortiz / McGaughey) will challenge with the fourth highest last out speed number at a longer route and three superb peaking workouts.  She should track the pace ready to move fluidly through the stretch.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#7 Sage d'Oro (Dominguez / R. Dutrow) should contend despite a long layoff.  She last posted the highest last out speed number, was working on a five race progression, and has put in three strong workouts.  Watch her to be forwardly placed.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#5 Ode to Sami (Castellano / Contessa) should be in the mix with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and two excellent workouts.  If the pace heats up on the front end she could use her tracking capabilities to good effect.

10 CENT Superfecta

#4 EZ Passer / #3 Island School / #7 Sage d'Oro / #5 Ode to Sami.
