Aqueduct: Flying Train rolls


  When David Jacobson claims a dropdown from Mike Repole and Todd Pletcher and gives it a few weeks off, bet first and ask questions later when the horse returns.

  Black Pen, claimed from Repole & Pletcher from a $25k maiden win at Saratoga Aug. 23, resurfaced at Belmont on Oct. 14 to win for $50,000, running six furlongs in 1:08 and earning a 102 Beyer; he was subsequently beaten a head in a starter allowance after a brutal trip here Nov. 10.

  Today, Flying Train (8th, $6.90), claimed from a $25,000 maiden win at Belmont Sept. 15, stalked Sky Hosoya - the 3-2 favorite from Repole & Pletcher - and inhaled that rival to draw off in hand in a starter allowance, earning back $24,600 without breaking a sweat.

  Sky Hosoya held on to dead-heat for second with Mai Tai Mama.
