Nick Shiambouros struck once more yesterday when Nicky the Vest gained the function at Aqueduct. Nick returns to the New York monitor with two extra alternatives from the Presidents’ Day card…
La Victoria powerful on debut
I’m going to facet with debutant La Victoria on this attention-grabbing Maiden Special Weight on the primary monitor.
This superbly bred filly by Tapit value $800k as a yearling and I can see why. She is out of the good mare La Verdad who was a number of Stakes winner for Linda Rice. La Verdad sadly died final rear, however that is her second runner. She has been coaching nicely down in South Florida, and has loads of exercises beneath her belt. She is suited by the situations of this race and suggest backing her at round 2.56/4.
Amundson to repeat in Hollie Hughes
Amundson is taken to win this Stakes race for the second 12 months operating.
This gelding beat My Boy Tate on this race final 12 months. He made a lot of the operating and stored on strongly to attain convincingly. He misplaced his manner after that spectacular effort, and has been off the course since final July. Trainer Horacio DePaz has been working him steadily over the previous few months, and put in a sharp piece of labor over at Belmont Park 9 days in the past. DePaz is having a unbelievable assembly with a 27% strike price. This is a powerful renewal so suggest backing him at BSP.
