Stakes Saturday at Aqueduct

 A thrilling Turf contest is on tap for this Stakes Saturday.  We turn our attention to arousing Aqueduct today.

Aqueduct Race 7 {Red Smith Handicap~G3~1 3/8 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A fantastic group of thirteen will go long on the green in this annual contest.  There is enough speed in here to keep the pace moving swiftly.  A significant number in this one have not yet gone this distance, but are still capable of making it.  The caliber of the entrants could make this race one of the most exciting TURF contests of the Fall.

#11 Hyper (Castellano / C. Brown) might have a slight edge with the highest last out speed number in a longer Turf route, a three race progression, and three hearty workouts.  This gallant son of Victory Gallop has enviable in the money record of 81% over the Turf.  He should track the pace confidently and roll strongly into the stretch.
$1 WIN / $2 PLACE / $3 SHOW.

#6 Tannery [IRE] (Solis / Goldberg) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and one diligent workout.  He also has two victories in three races at this distance.  A son of Dylan Thomas [IRE], should track the pace and launch into a smooth close in the stretch.
$1 PLACE / $2 SHOW.

#2 Imagining (Rosario / McGaughey) will contend with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and three robust workouts.  As a son of Giants Causeway, distance should not be a problem for a lad that could be forwardly placed.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Sky Blazer (Maragh / Tagg) should be in the mix with the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three top-notch workouts.  This son of Sky Mesa should track the pace and quicken coming into the turn.

#9 Howe Great (C. Velasquez / Mettel) will be in the hunt sharing the third highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two superb workouts.  He should be close to the pace as the handsome son of Hat Trick [JPN].
