Horse Racing Picks by Stogie for Friday, Jan. 22, 2021

by Ken Stogie | January 22, 2021 |

Aqueduct Race 5

  • 4 Four of Swords- ran a respectable 5th in a large field of 13 last start, not a bad effort considering Gelding was coming off a 10 month hiatus ,look for a much better effort today second off the layoff, Top Pick
  • 8 Breithorn- Kentucky Bred is 3-4 in the money here with a Maiden win at this distance, Live Longshot
  • 7 Big Boy Mo- in for 25k tag today, last time this 5 year old was offered up , he just missed victory by a nostril, Major Threat

Selections 4-8-7-9


Fair Grounds Race 8

  • 7 Rocket Reload- Woodbine shipper makes first start in the barn of the very consistent Brad Cox, Filly’s early pace numbers are the quickest of the bunch and if this one breaks well, she could be gone, Win Contender
  • 1 Off we go – tries the blades for the first time and based on this Fillys pedigree the change in surface should not be a problem, Filly was overmatched last out in a Stakes at Keeneland, she fits well with these, Win Contender
  • 5 Blissful Change- Joe Sharp trained Filly has been on the improve and sports a couple of nice works, don’t overlook

Selections 7-1-5-2


Oaklawn Park Race 8 Smarty Jones Stakes

  • 3 Cowan- after running a strong second to Golden Pal in the BC Juvenile Turf Sprint, this son of Kantharos stretched out in the SpringBoard Mile at Remington Park and finished a strong second, Asmussen has this one training lights out, Colt does have a bit of seconditis, but this is a significant drop in class, Top Pick
  • 7 Caddo River – never worse than second in 3 lifetime starts, broke Maiden last out by an eye popping 9 and a half lengths, the waters get a little deeper here as Colt takes on winners for the first he first time, Win Contender
  • 4 Big Thorn- After two impressive wins versus Florida Breds , Colt failed in open company in the Mucho Macho Man Stakes at GP, but that was a tough field, should be competitive here today, don’t ignore

Selections 3-7-4-6


Gulfstream Park Race 9

  • 4 Arkham – impressive in debut winning by over 7 with a 97 speed figure for a Trainer Todd Pletcher and has looked mighty sharp in the morning works, hard to go against this son of Union Rags, Top Pick
  • 7 Whyruawesome- 10 year old is still going strong, winning 4 of his last 6 races and shows recent 2/46 bullet, Win Contender
  • 1 Untitled- set the pace last out in the Grade 3 Marine at Woodbine, faded late to finish 4 th beaten by 5 lengths, Colt has two wins in 4 starts here at Gulfstream , Major Threat

Selection 4-7-1-2
