“America” The Beautiful At Aqueduct (11/28)

Nov 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for a difficult Sunday card — very frustrating to list 8 winners yesterday but only one on top, which is not good enough!  I’ll try and have a few more winners on top today.

In race 7, Rock America (#1) just broke his maiden but is at the proper level to repeat and Dominguez stays in a race where he clearly had choices — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 10 and 4.

In race 8, Masala (#6) has some back class and goes first off the claim for a barn that has done well with that angle — I’m betting that the horse may be a better late running sprinter and can run down the leaders with a fast pace likely. I’m betting a nice number across the board, keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 12 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6 with 1 and 5

Race 2: 7 with 8 and 4

Race 3: 5 and 6

Race 4: 10, 7 and 3

Race 5: 3 and 5

Race 6: 9, 8 and 1A

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) with 10 and 4

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) with 12 and 4

Race 9: 9 and 6



“Musket” A Must At Aqueduct (11/27)

Nov 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for a great Saturday card with several great stakes on tap.  In race 9, The Cigar Mile, Musket Man (#7) has been racing against the best in the country and you can make an argument that his best trip could be a one turn mile — I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 1A and 3.

In race 8, The Gazelle, Dubai Dancer (#5) is lightly raced and has good positional speed to stay close and can take command in mid stretch and hold off the closers.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 4 and 10

Race 2: 7 and 1

Race 3: 3, 10 and 4

Race 4: 6, 1 and 7

Race 5: 3 with 7 and 6

Race 6: 3 and 1

Race 7: 7 and 5

Race 8: 5 (Best Bet) and 8

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 1A and 3

Race 10: 5 with 13 and 1



“Platinum” Shines At Aqueduct (11/25)

Nov 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm on turkey day — wishing all my family and friends a wonderful, festive holiday weekend!

In race 2, Platinum Plus (#2) is as consistent as they come on turf and gets a nice cozy post for a stalk and pounce trip — should repeat as the favorite today.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #’s 6 and 9.

In race 6, The Tinchen’s Prince, Giant Moon (#2) cuts back to a one turn mile after a tough trip in the Empire Classic last time — call in wide open race.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 10 and 4

Race 2: 2 (Best Bet) with 6 and 9

Race 3: 5 and 3

Race 4: 10 and 4

Race 5: 5 and 4

Race 6: 2 (Best Bet) and 7

Race 7: 1 with 3 and 10

Race 8: 1A and 6

Race 9: 2 and 8



Demand “Remand” At Aqueduct (11/21)

Nov 21st, 2010 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm at Aqueduct — trying to redeem myself after Saturday’s card where I listed 1 winner at 4-5 the entire day.  That’s why I don’t quit my day job!  Maybe I should pay attention to the speed bias on dirt and not do my usual race flow analysis if the track was fair.

In race 3, Remand (#3) gets great class relief today and can sit 3 lengths behind a contested pace and score as the second choice.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #5.

In race 4, Chicks Are Better (#5) gets a great stalking post and should get the better of these at 5 1/2 furlongs.  I’m keying in all doubles and pick 3′s and playing an exacta box with #9.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4 and 2

Race 2: 4 and 6

Race 3: 3 (Best Bet) and 5

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) and 9

Race 5: 6 with 5 and 2

Race 6: 6 and 5

Race 7: 8 with 4 and 5

Race 8: 8 and 4

Race 9: 3, 4 and 5
