Power cap- existential handicapping

Sunday Pedigree Special

An old favorite mare of mine has a maiden starting tomorrow in Aqueduct race 4. Wind In My Sails is from a line of winning hard knocking claimers. Here is a bit about her dam;

Breezethruthetrees - [88 by Big Spruce out of Chiming Jet] Raced by Cedar Meadow and was stakes placed in the Villager. “On this rock we built our farm.” While we apologize for the mixed biblical reference, we make no apologies for her role as “grand dam of Cedar Meadow.” Not only did she win twice at Aqueduct retiring with earnings of $49,530, she has produced 9 foals of racing age which have won a total of 39 races and earned over $600,000. These include: Secret Breeze [NYRA allowance winner of over $113,000], Chute the Breeze [winner at 3, 4, and 6 at Aqueduct, Belmont, Finger Lakes, Penn National, and Mountaineer of 9 races and over $160,000], Breeze On, a winner at 3, 4, and 5 of over $100,000, Peconic Breeze [allowance winner of $100,000+ and 14 races through 2000], Icicle Charlie [NY allowance winner of over $70,000], Indian Wells Kenny [4 wins at 4 at Aqueduct and Philadelphia], Kipling's Breeze [allowance winner in Texas], and Free As A Breeze.

With the racing at Aqueduct it looks like Wind in My Sails will be able to upset this field. This filly is from a family of winners. Not only does she cutback in distance but she is trained over the track.
