Where: Aqueduct
When: Saturday, March 2
Who:  Elnaawi (win)

Gotham City is a fictional city appearing in comic books and best known as the home of Batman but the super heroes that are the subject today will try to take that next step to glory in the Gotham at Aqueduct.

This $400,000 Grade 3 mile and a sixteenth race is a springboard to the Grade 1 Wood Memorial in early April.

Some legends like Dr. Fager, Native Dancer and Secretariat have won this race over the decades and last year Hansen when he got a perfect 2-hole trip to cash by 3 with a 95 Beyer.

Champion Boy breaks from the rail and he will be trying to do something few ever have done and that’s win a Graded stakes as a sports betting maiden. The price will be huge.

Escapefromreality was beaten a neck by Revolutionary in the Grade 3 Withers on February 2 and he has fired every single time.

Ore Pass is coming off a win in the Frank Whiteley Jr. at Laurel Park but he has to prove he can route. His sire War Pass won multiple Grade 1s routing but his dam only took one sprint and this is her first to roll.

Amerigo Vespucci tried the blinkers last time to no avail. He has not won since the second start. His sire could run all day on grass and his dam has dropped several winners including a successful router.

Transparent beat a pretty soft betting sites field in his last for the maiden breaker and will have to step it up.

Now and Then looms the speed half of the coupling with Transparent and he won at first asking here sprinting as the chalk. In good hands, connections must like this guy and he has a right to star as kin to successful Grade 1 winning router and over $700,000 earner Seventh Street.

Siete de Oros has won twice in Philly but could not build on his solid Jerome effort with a third in the Withers.

Trainer Rudy Rodriguez will saddle Vyjack, who is unbeaten in three starts, all at Aqueduct and has a Cinderfella thing going for him. His owner, David Wilkenfeld, had the only winning ticket in a $3.3 million Pick Six at Santa Anita about 5 years ago and this was the first runner he purchased. The runner brought $100,000 last May.

The classic blood is there if you go deep enough. The third dam dropped over $500,000 winner Miss Slewpy, who won at a mile and a quarter.

In his most recent outing, he contested the pace and wore down Siete de Oros to win the Jerome by a head earning a 90 Beyer.

Elnaawi is a half-brother to 2011 Grade 1 Cigar Mile and 2012 Grade 1 Woodward winner To Honor and Serve, who won 8 times, all routes, and banked over $1.7 million. Elnaawi will be making his stakes debut.

Sky Captain is up from Gulfstream and he was far from disgraced running second in a $75,000 optional last time at 9 furlongs.

West Hills Giant has won routing on grass and he was inching toward the winner in his comeback last time. Look for the rider to send hard as the blinkers are added for this.

Overanalyze has not raced since the game win in the Remsen but the fact he won his debut gives him a right to fire fresh. This Todd Pletcher trainee has not miss a beat training at Palm Meadows coming to this race.

After watching the horse betting replay, Elnaawi could sit an ideal trip here. There is plenty of speed to set up a kick if he can rate just a little and the way he graduated suggests he will be able to move forward.

Good luck.
