Aqueduct: Fast & off the turf

Email

  The main track is fast and we're off the turf for races 6 & 9 to start Wood week, which brings the off-the-turf total to 8 races since Friday.

  The good news: they're unrolling the turf tarps off the turns right now.

  The bad news: showers are in the forecast from tonight through Friday.

  After scratches, 54 horses are left on today's card, which is a handful better than the 49 that showed up Sunday.

  Be Bullish (8th) is the 8-5 favorite to post his second win in five days in the $60,000 Hamlet overnight stakes; he meets four.
