Aqueduct Hot List - March 15

You are here

Today’s NY Hot List races to watch – March 15, 2013 at Aqueduct

Hot List Key:

A : A preferred horse to watch                  B: Secondary horse to watch
*C: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 1st through 3rd
*D: Went down 2 or more betting notches and finished 4th or worse
* - 4 or more betting notches if 11-1 or more.

4th race – (6) Ah Gaga (a B last time) ran very well to get second last time and actually led late in the race.  Needed that race off the freshening so we could see better in this outing.  (3) Thepowersthatbe comes in off a sharp debut when she ran second and is a big threat assuming normal improvement second-time out. (7) A Prettydixie has been knocking on the door of late and two recent bullet works signal a big effort. (4) La Verdad debuts on Lasix for Linda Rice and the weight break is a plus.

5th race – (6) Beeliner (A) has been excellent in two starts since the Rice claim and looks to be the horse to beat in here. (1) Kentucky Pie (C) took a ton of money last time and looked impressive winning his inner track debut. (8) Sinistra (B) has been a steady competitor and should not be underestimated. (3) Warrior James (A) just may love the stretch out and comes off an impressive win while racing 4-wide. (5) Tweet Me (C) may also appreciate the more ground to cover, but steps up in class significantly.

6th race – (2) Excess Liquidity (D) takes a significant class drop and Linda Rice has been a menace of late first off the claim. (9) Imreloaded (B) has improved his last two tries and now drops to an all-time low level by 15k in claim tag. (8) Buddy Jones cuts the claim tag in half for his second start. (3) M P Ruckus ran OK in his debut to get the place spot.

8th race – (6) Street Fight (C) can be forgiven for that last effort as we point to the prior two starts as a better gauge of his ability. He also gets a nice cut in weight over that last start. (3) Springcourt is always a threat and today should be no different. (4) Assured Victory goes out third off the layoff. (10) Smokin Candy could factor at a price off the Galluscio claim.

Best bet: Beeliner (5th); Best value: Ah Gaga (4th)
