Saturday's Best Bet: Honor Up set for stakes win in Say Florida Sandy

January 11, 2019 10:30pm
Saturday’s eighth race from Aqueduct is the $100,000 Say Florida Sandy Stakes for New York-bred four-year-olds and up dashing seven furlongs on the main track (Post Time - 3:58 p.m. ET).


#9 HONOR UP (9-2) ran well in all three starts since moving to the Michelle Nevin barn. The sharp, improving 4-year-old colt likes this course and distance and fired a local bullet for this Jan. 4. The versatile runner drew well. 


#2 Gold for the King (6-5) exits an OK third as the beaten chalk versus open company in the Gravesend. He romped versus restricted stakes foes at this course/distance Nov. 18 and is a solid early-pressing threat at low odds.


#6 Celtic Chaos (5-1) received a freshening after finishing fourth in the Fall Highweight (G3) on Nov. 22. He hits hard against state-bred company and should appreciate today’s added furlong.
