Notebook Stakes - Race #5 at Aqueduct – Post Time 2:17 PM ET
Bourbon Empire was highly impressive in his career debut 24 days ago, showing maturity to rally from 5th of 10 early and pulling off to win by 4 lengths at the end. Junior Alvarado rides back and with a best of 41 half-mile workout as his most recent showing he's in great form, and with lots of improving to do in his 2nd career start, Bourbon Empire should be tough to beat. "IF" he draws into the race, Breeze Burner is worth a win, win/place or win/place/show bet because although he only won a 25K maiden claimer at Delaware Park in his career debut in September, it caught the attention of sharp owner Michael Dubb and top trainer Rudy Rodriguez, so much so he was privately purchased and entered in this stakes for NY Breds only off that "open" (not restricted) maiden claiming win.
Bet Bourbon Empire to win at odds of 2 to 1 or more.
Consider additional Win Bet (or win/place or win/place/show) on Breeze Burner at odds of 6 to 1 or more.
