2020 Gotham Stakes Handicapping
On a busy Saturday of horse racing across the United States, the feature at New York’s Aqueduct Race Track is the (G3) Gotham Stakes. The Gotham is a Kentucky Derby qualifying race and awards Derby qualifying points on a 50-20-10 basis to the top four finishers. The winner of the race should put enough points in the bank to make the Derby.
Eleven three-year-old colts have drawn into the field, and they’ll race one mile on the Aqueduct dirt track, chasing a total purse of $300,000.
Odds listed here are from Bovada’s racebook.
2020 Gotham Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Mischevious Alex Race Odds: 27-20
Already a veteran of six lifetime starts, Mischevious Alex comes into the Gotham on a two-race winning streak in which he popped off back-to-back plus-100 Equibase speed figures. The most recent of those wins came in the (G3) Swale Stakes where he overcame a bump coming out of the gate to take control of the pace and cruise to a seven-length win. Prior to that he won the Parx Juvenile Stakes at Parx Racing by more than nine lengths.
John Servis is the trainer, Kendrick Carmouche is the jockey.
2020 Gotham Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Attachment Rate Race Odds: 5-1
In contrast to Mischevious Alex, Attachment Rate has three starts to his name and comes into this race off a maiden win at Gulfstream. That race featured a very hot pace up front through the first half-mile that he was able to close into and take control as they came off the turn. That race was run at the Gotham distance of one mile, making him one of the few in this field with a win at the distance.
Dale Romans trains, Luis Saez gets the call to ride.
2020 Gotham Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Montauk Traffic Race Odds: 8-1
In his very first lifetime race, the gate opened and Montauk Traffic….just stood there. He finally decided to start running after losing all chance by spotting the field dozens of lengths. Next race out he remembered what he was supposed to do and came out of the gate clean to go on and score his maiden win. Last out in the Jimmy Winkfield Stakes at Aqueduct he took some bumping at the gate and found himself trailing the field early but again managed to get up for the win over a very tough rival.
Linda Rice trains, Jose Lezcano will be in the irons.
2020 Gotham Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Sixto Race Odds: 10-1
A bit of a wildcard in here owing to the fact he only has one previous race to his name, Sixto made that debut effort a winning one, when he was the only runner with double digit odds in the field. The question is if he was really the longshot that day and if he can repeat the effort. That race was at six furlongs, and his running style suggests he wants more distance.
He’s trained by Eric Guillot, while Eric Cancel is tapped to ride.
Here’s my 2020 Gotham Stakes Free Pick.
I’m hoping there’s going to be some early speed in this race and that helps set things up for a horse coming off the pace like Montauk Traffic. I like the way he seems to be improving each time out, and if I can get anything close to his pre-race odds I’ll bet him to both Win and Place. I’ll put him on top in the exacta with both Mischevious Alex and Attachment Rate underneath.
