A “Rewarding” New Year At Aqueduct (1/1/2016)

Jan 1st, 2016 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Clear and fast for the New Year’s Day card — just wanted to wish all my family and friends a healthy and prosperous new year.  Winter racing is tough to get exciting about, but let’s see how I do today!

In race 7, Lifes Reward (#8) claimed by crafty connections and should get a fast pace to set up late run at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.

In race 5, Combat Diver (#5) also claimed by great claiming outfit and main jockey takes call — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 1 and 2

Race 2: 4, 9 and 1

Race 3: 6, 2 and 3

Race 4: 1, 9 and 2

Race 5: 5 (Best Bet) with 9 and 2

Race 6: 4, 3 and 10

Race 7: 8 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4

Race 8: 7, 4 and 5
