Strings and Arrows Eyes mid-January Return. Strings and Arrows continues to progress toward his return to racing. He worked five furlongs on December 24th, and is pretty close to a start. Trainer Leah Gyarmati is looking at two races at Aqueduct, both NY-bred maiden specials. There’s a 5 1/2 furlong sprint on Saturday, January 16th, and a mile and 70 yard race on Monday, January 18th. We’ll decide which way to go as we get closer to race day.
