The Aqueduct meet draws to a close this weekend. Before that happens, the handicap division gets a chance to try the Classic distance over the Aqueduct main in the Excelsior Stakes (GIII). The race drew a field of eight headed by Wicked Strong, but also including three horses who have run in graded stakes in the Chicago area.
I look at the Excelsior over at Picks and Ponderings. Head on over there to see what I have to say, and leave me a comment if you think I am right — or really, really wrong — about my outlook on the race!
