Free analysis of the 2015 Gotham Stakes run at Aqueduct Racetrack.
The $400,000 Grade III Gotham Stakes is run at 8.5 furlongs on the inner dirt at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York. The most famous racehorse to win this race was one of the best of all time – Secretariat.
Classy Class (7/2)
After a good race last out in the Withers, Classy Class looks to belong in this Grade III affair. He went to the lead and held well against the race favorite El Kabeir and race winner Far From Over who has elected to skip the Gotham and go right to the Wood Memorial.
From a Pace Figure perspective he ran his best race lifetime, a 75.7/74.9 with a DTOP Form Cycle Pattern. The Double Top represents when a horse runs it's best final and 4f Pace Figure by a notable margin, usually a signal of regression coming.
The Play: Regressor – DTOP combined with a front running style in a race contentious with speed makes his 7-2 morning line surprising.
