Watchmaker: How I'll play Aqueduct for Saturday, April 9


With rain in the forecast for Saturday’s Wood Memorial card at Aqueduct, I’m going to steer clear of the three races scheduled for turf until there is resolution one way or the other. And if the rain does indeed materialize, and the main track is wet, I’m going to pay close attention to how speed does. When the Aqueduct main track was wet and sealed on Thursday, the surface played strongly in favor of speed.
