Gotham marks spring’s return at Aqueduct; chat at 12:00

March 5, 2011

Gotham day is the unofficial start of spring for NY racing fans and an 11 race card is on tap at the Big A today beginning at 1:00 PM EST.  Join me for a chat at 12:00 EST by clicking here.

This Gotham field hardly reminds you of some of the better renditions in years gone by, but it seems like there are two legitimate win candidates that could make noise down the line in the 3YO ranks.  I’ll side with #4 TOBY’S CORNER, the Whirlaway winner, who is ready to tackle graded stakes company.  He will have to deal with #5 STAY THIRSTY, who is returning from a lengthy break after being beaten handily by his stablemate Uncle Mo in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

There are three other stakes on the undercard and the biggest event nationwide is the Grade I, $750,000 Santa Anita Handicap, which goes as the 10th race on the SA card.  Join me to talk about these races and more at noon!  Best of luck!
