Aqueduct: Early money is correct on Fiery Forest


Fiery Forest, pounded to 1-9 early, eventually went off at even-money and ran like a heavy favorite should rolling to the front in midstretch and splashing clear to an easy victory in the $25,000 claimer. Ramon Dominguez, whose plane from Kentucky didn't arrive in time for hm to ride Zosogood in the opener, rode Fiery Forest to the easy socreo for trainer David Duggan.

 Dominguez moved to within one win of Cornelio Velasquez for leading rider. Dominguez doesn't ride again until the fifth. Velasquez has six mountw remaining.

 Late scratch just in in the eighth race .... Lakeside Chapel. Field to reduced to a field of six in that race, which currently remains on the turf, though rain does continue to fall.
