Whirlaway at Aqueduct - Saturday, February 7, 2009

8th Race

In an upset, I like 3 Peace Town to defeat the big favorite, Haynesfield. Peace Town is a Laurel shipper from Trombetta. Looks to like the distance with the best final time, closing time and good energy distribution. Will need to stay close.

1 Haynesfield is another Asmussen trainee and has done nothing wrong. However, he looks to be past his optimum distance which is the mile and 70 yards, given his energy distribution which is too high. He had to fight in the stretch in last to beat a not so hot field. Very vulnerable at a short price. No thanks.

5 Zooger from Philadelphia could come from the clouds to be 2nd if Haynesfield stops. Good closing time and energy distribution but likely 10 lengths behind after 6 furlongs.

My bet:

$20 Ex: 3-1

$10 Ex: 1-3

$10 Ex: 3-5

Total $40

Good luck!

Mr. X
