Looking To “Atone” At Aqueduct (11/29)

Nov 29th, 2009 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and good at Aqueduct today.  I’m trying to forget the horrible day I had on Saturday and pick some winners today.  In race 8, Atoned (#4) goes for the second time off a long layoff — has won at 1 1/2 before and can score in this marathon race.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and boxing in an exacta with Critical Acclaim (#9) who is also comforatable with this distance.

In race 3, Royal Vessel (#2) is the in-form closer in a race packed with speed — can post the upset at a price.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with Summer Palace (#8). Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7 and 6

Race 2: 4 and 8

Race 3: 2 (Best Bet) and 8

Race 4: 2, 4 and 10

Race 5: 5 and 6

Race 6: 3 and 2

Race 7: 3, 1 and 6

In race 7, The Grade 2 Remsen, Homeboy Kris (#5) can handle his first two turn try and should get the job done against this small field.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and also using Buddy’s Saint (#4) as a saver in those same bets.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
