December 07, 2019 06:44pm

Sunday’s 9th race from Aqueduct is the Grade 3 Fall Highweight for 3-year-olds and up traveling six furlongs on the main track (Post Time 3:45 p.m. ET).

#5 WONDERFUL LIGHT (8-1) is fresh and tactical, and he does some of his best work at six furlongs. The lightly raced 5-year-old horse is very reliable, and he fired a local bullet for this Dec. 4. 


#7 Happy Farm (6-1) has really improved since Jason Servis claimed him for $30k March 3. The early-pressing type seeks a four-bagger, and this is clearly a class test. He is 0-for-5 with four runner-up finishes at Aqueduct.  


#3 Recruiting Ready (6-5) is fast enough to wire the field. He is 7-for-15 at this distance and captured the Gravesend in his lone local attempt. 


#4 Strike Power (5-2) should get involved early but usually competes in longer events (0-for-1 at 6f). He finished a nose in front of Recruiting Ready in the True North (G2). He clearly has talent but is unreliable, and seems to prefer Gulfstream Park. 


Wagers:
