Aqueduct – Race 4 – #5 New Year’s Wish – Linda Rice moves this 4-year old filly from the allowance ranks to her first stakes attempt. Rice is one of the best in knowing when a horse is ready for the jump from condition to condition and this horses strong workouts, makes it hard to ignore her. Definitely worth a shot on Sunday.
Aqueduct – Race 7 – #4 Newly Minted – This 3-year old filly has been Linda Rice’s top horse in 2019. She has won multiple stakes races and now drops back down to run in this $75K Allowance race. She has won 4 of 6 career races but they are making a jockey change to Kendrick Carmouche. Should really put on a show today but will most likely go off as the favorite.
Gulfstream Park – Race 2 – #2 Shell Shock – This American Pharoah 2-year old filly has missed breaking her maiden in 2 of her 3 career races, finishing in 2nd place, twice, and running 9th in her last race. Throw out that last race and look for this one to bounce back strong against a much lesser quality field.
