New Post Times For Aqueduct Scheduled To Take Effect In February

The Aqueduct winter meet will see a change in post times for live race days February 1-15, with eight-race cards at the Ozone Park, N.Y., track now featuring a first post of 1:20 p.m. Eastern. Nine-race cards, encompassing weekend slates, will have a 1 p.m. first post. The last race of each day will be 4:55 p.m.

There are a total of eight racing days scheduled for this stretch, starting on Thursday, February 4 and running through Sunday, February 7. Live racing then resumes Friday, February 12 and goes through a special Presidents Day holiday card on Monday, February 15.

Among the stakes during that sequence will be the Grade 3, $250,000 Withers, a Kentucky Derby prep race for sophomores offering 10-4-2-1 qualifying points, on February 6. The $100,000 Ruthless for 3-year-old fillies is the lone stakes on February 7. A pair of stakes for New York-breds is set for February 13-14, as the $100,000 Broadway for older fillies and mares will be run on that Saturday and the $100,000 Gander for sophomores will be the Sunday feature. The Presidents Day card will also see New York breds compete, with 4-year-olds and up going six furlongs in the $100,000 Hollie Hughes.

From February 16-28, Aqueduct’s eight-race cards will also have a 1:20 p.m. first post and a 4:55 p.m. final post. Nine-race cards will also have the same first post, but the concluding race will have a 5:20 p.m. post time. Both weeks in this stretch will offer four days of living racing, Thursday through Sunday.

A pair of stakes will be run during this stretch, including the $100,000 Maddie May for state-bred 4-years-old and up on February 20 and the $125,000 Stymie for 4-year-olds and up in open company on February 27.
