Bebob looks like strongest pick-six single

Email

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - What better way to celebrate the end of tax season than with a major score at the track? Handicappers playing the pick six at Aqueduct Wednesday will have that opportunity as there is a $205,953 carryover entering the day.

The sequence starts with race 4 (2:27 p.m. Eastern) and includes three turf races. A forecast that calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s should make for fast and firm conditions.

Here's a look at the six races:

Race 4: She's My Sunshine returns to turf in this weak maiden claiming race for fillies and mares at one mile. In her only previous start for a tag on grass, She's My Sunshine was beaten a half-length after making clear lead in midstretch. Channing Hill, aboard for that race, is back aboard for trainer Ken Pellegrino. The negative is that She's My Sunshine has not been out since Feb. 28 and shows only one work in the interim.

Fourth Chapter was beaten six lengths in her only turf start, which came last November, after being forced to steady at start.

Eulogize finished last as the favorite in field of 12 for $50,000 at Gulfstream. Trainer Robert Ribaudo thought his filly was too close to the pace and is hoping a switch to apprentice Sebastian Morales results in better trip. Ribaudo said he's concerned that Eulogize could be rank coming off a Feb. 28 layoff.

The entry of Fiery Inferno and Leah C look both have miserable dirt form, but their trainer, Gary Contessa, has 69 wins on the year already while his seven colleagues in this field have combined for six.

Race 5: Bebob looks like the strongest single in the sequence, coming off a big-figure win for maiden $40,000 3-year-olds and up last out. That was his first start for trainer Mike Hushion, who has given the colt nearly five weeks between races. Deeper pockets should also include Good Law and Buy Personality on the tickets.

Race 6: If Jimmy Jump Up and Volos don't kill each other on the front, one of them figures to get the job done in this $25,000 maiden claimer at six furlongs. Volos chased the pace after breaking from the rail when third at this level at Gulfstream. Jimmy Jump Jump had a troubled start from the rail against slightly richer 13 days earlier. The Contessa-trained entry of Ballado Alert and Mackinaw is also playable.

Race 7: Players have to go at least four deep in this maiden turf race with a full field of 3-year-old fillies going a mile. Raw Silk finished first in her turf debut last November, but was disqualified. Her barn is capable off the layoff.

Jelly Roll is out of dam whose lone win came on turf and who is a half-sister to Trail City, a Grade 2 winner on turf. First-time starter Satilla is out of dam who won her debut on dirt, but who went 7 for 29 on turf, including a stakes win. Sonnets Way was beaten by only two lengths in debut at Calder on Dec. 31 and now gets Lasix.

Race 8: There appears to be ample speed in this first-level allowance race for 3-year-olds, which could set things up nicely for Cosmic, the regally bred colt trained by Shug McGaughey. This son of El Prado out of Heavenly Prize comes off a solid maiden win at this trip at Gulfstream. "I think he's a nice horse," McGaughey said. "Whether it's going to be right now, dirt or turf I don't know."

British Columbia has improved dramatically with blinkers. He ran second to Numaany here last November.

Race 9: Trainer David Donk has won 3 of the first 7 turf races run here this year and could add to that total with Alpha Dancer, who makes his turf debut against suspect group. He has ton of turf breeding on bottom side. Donk feels Alpha Dancer was too close to pace in last dirt try on April 2. Wonderous Day shows two good turf races last fall and a bullet work for this. Sky Dragon has missed by nose, neck, and head in the last three turf tries, but has the look of professional maiden.
