Aqueduct: Key changes


Another beautiful day in Queens -- fast and firm conditions as the countdown to the end of the meet (Sunday is closing day) continues. Remember, Belmont opens Friday not on Wednesday.

Key changes:

2nd race --- Scratches of Zosogood (9-2) and Frazil (7-2) make for our daily 4-horse field. B Z Warrior and Dreamed Day could hook up setting things up for Coach Gravy, who drops in price second start for Rudy Rodriguez who continues to sizzle at this meet.

5th race --The scratch of Crepe Au Sucre isn't big news. The return of Tim Ice is. Ice puts his perfect record in New York (4 for 4) on the line with Flag Indy, who makes first start off claim. Flag Indy gets blinkers for first time.

7th race _ Macho Prado (4-1) looked good in this spot. He and longshots Can't Refuse and Marscaponi are out. Dorian Will and Kid Tornado look the best.

8th race -- Some speed came out with the scratches of Brady Baby, Be Bullish and Pewter. Roaring Lion looks like main speed with Tizway likely to be hounding him.
