I Got a Horse Right Here!

I like to hear that… It makes me think Christmas comes early. And possibly, it just might.

In the first race at Aqueduct on Friday, I love a runner by the name of Stealth Missile. Entering in at 5-2 on the morning line, this looks like a good thing.

Victor LeBron is the rider for trainer Mike Maker. Maker just won the Churchill Downs meet, and they have teamed up to win 44% together. The track on Thursday was sloppy/sealed, and played very kindly to the speed.

This is the second time off of a layoff, and Maker wins 33% on this move alone. This son of Golden Missile looks ready for flight, and if the track comes up just a bit wet or is heavily saturated, bet early and bet often…

I would seek out WinningPonies.com to put together a Pick-3, and smack down the multi-race exotics. lets start the weekend out right. This trainer is a man on a mission, and this looks like a good start.
