Mike’s Free Selections for Saturday Dec. 16:

Aqueduct Race 1 Alw $50,000s (12:20 ET)

  • No.4 Scarf It Down   9-5
  • No.5 New Moon   5-1
  • No.7 Shadow Rider   2-1
  • No.3 Battle Ready   8-1
Scarf It Down caught a sloppy track last out where the gelding set the early fractions and get nailed late in a third place finish as the beaten chalk. Two back over a fast main track at Belmont Park he battled for the early lead and finished gamely to miss by just a neck in a runner up finish. The gelding does not need the lead and likely will not have it here. He should get a good tracking trip and should be able to handle this group.

New Moon dueled for the early lead and finished gamely to graduate for a $40,000 tag last out on the class drop at Laurel Park going seven furlongs. The gelding was beaten double digit lengths in three of his first four starts but not looks primed for another good effort here in his third start of his current form cycle. The Nevin trainee will need to move forward off her last effort to be in the mix here but looks capable.

WIN: 4 to win at 9-5 or better.
EX: 4,5 / 3,4,5,7
TRI: 4,5 / 3,4,5,7 / 3,4,5,6,7
