Aqueduct: Fast & yielding


  On a quintessential Aqueduct day - cool and cloudy with some fog hanging around - the main track is fast and the turf is yielding to begin the four-day final week.

  The 1st, 4th and 6th races remain on the turf; the 9th race has been taken off.

  David Jacobson holds an 8-7 lead on Linda Rice atop the trainer standings, but he has nothing in today and both of Rice's runners are contenders: My Snookie's Pal is the 5-2 second choice in race 2; and Envoyez Vite is the 9-5 favorite in race 7.

  Cornelio Velasquez enters the final week with a 20-16 lead on Ramon Dominguez in the jock's race.
