2020 Remsen Stakes Handicapping
While we are only a few months removed from the running of the 2020 Kentucky Derby, qualifying for the 2021 Derby is already well under way. As part of a 10 race card on Saturday afternoon, Aqueduct plays host to the (G2) Remsen Stakes, which awards Derby qualifying points on a 10-4-2-1 scale to the top four finishers.
Open to horses age two, the Remsen is run at one mile on the Aqueduct dirt course. The race has drawn a small but closely matched field of five starters.
Odds listed here are provided by the Aqueduct track handicapper.
2020 Remsen Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Known Agenda Race Odds: 8-5
Like several others in here, the Kentucky bred Known Agenda comes in off a maiden victory, having won his second career start last out racing 1 1/8 miles on the Aqueduct dirt.
After getting caught four wide on the first turn while running mid-pack, he managed to make a strong move in the lane to get up for the narrow win, in a very slow race where the second-place finisher was 21 lengths in front of the rest of the pack.
Trainer Todd Pletcher has two previous Remsen wins to his name, while jockey John Velazquez has won four times.
2020 Remsen Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Ten For Ten Race Odds: 2-1
Sporting a record of one win and two runner-up finishes in three lifetime starts, Ten For Ten is one of two horses in the field with prior graded-stakes experience, having run second last out in the (G2) Nashua Stakes going one mile at Aqueduct.
Before that he probably ran the best race of the three in getting his maiden win running 1 1/16 miles at Belmont Park. There he took the field wire-to-wire and won by eight lengths while scoring a 95 Equibase speed figure, tops in this field.
Trainer Shug McGaughey holds the record with four Remsen wins. Jockey Jose Ortiz won in 2014.
2020 Remsen Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Pickin’ Time Race Odds: 5-2
The other horse in the field with graded-stakes experience, Pickin’ Time also has the most starts, having run in five previous races while scoring three wins.
Last out he was the winner by 2 1/4 lengths over Ten For Ten in the Nashua, and before that he won a stretch duel over six furlongs to win the Smoke Glacken Stakes at Monmouth by a nose.
He’s trained by Kelly Breen, while 2009 race winner Jose Lezcano is tapped to ride.
2020 Remsen Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Brooklyn Strong Race Odds: 7-2
The New York-bred Brooklyn Strong comes in off a stakes win at Belmont Park after capturing the Sleepy Hollow Stakes in late October over one mile after prevailing in a three-horse duel in the stretch.
He was a first-out winner when taking his debut race at Delaware Park in September before shipping to Belmont and running third in the Bertram Bongard Stakes. Both of his stakes races so far were restricted to New York breds.
Daniel Velazquez trains, Joel Rosario will be in the irons.
Here’s My 2020 Remsen Stakes Free Pick.
Clearly there’s not a ton of value in a five-horse race when four of those are lower than 4-1 in the morning line odds, but if they’ll give me Pickin’ Time at 5-2 I’ll take him for the win.
He’s the most experienced colt in the race and the only one with a graded-stakes win on his resume, and that came over a rival here – Ten For Ten – that is actually assigned lower odds in the ML.
