Some professional race horses will be getting together in today's eighth race, a $52,000 optional claimer at six furlongs, at Aqueduct.
The seven entrants -- Black Silk, Brucker's Brother, Out Of Fashion, Alex's Pal, Spooky Mulder, Secret Run and Aggadan -- have combined to win 52 in 196 starts and earn more than $1.6 million.
Spooky Mulder, a 6-year-old gelded son of Brunswick, leads the group with 14 victories in 32 starts.
Co-owned and trained by Scott Lake, Spooky Mulder has won three of his last four and has been worse than second only once in seven starts since being claimed by his current connections for $25,000 last Oct. 10 at Keeneland.
A 4-year-old gray son of End Sweep, Secret Run has won four of five since being claimed for $40,000 by trainer Frank Laboccetta Jr. for a partnership Oct. 17 at Belmont Park. Secret Run looks like the speed of the field under jockey Norberto Arroyo Jr.
