“Right” Can’t Be Wrong At Aqueduct (11/26/17)

Nov 26th, 2017 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — started out well yesterday listing the winners of the first 4 races, but failed to hit the early pick 5 and my best bets ran poorly, so let’s see if I can rebound and make it 3 out of 4 winning days for the Thanksgiving weekend.

In race 7, Inalienable Rights (#1) cuts back to sprint and gets a fast pace to set up late run if track is playing fair — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 8.

In race 3, Schott (#8) gets back on dirt and has races good enough to win this at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 2 and 4

Race 2: 9, 8 and 4

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

Race 4: 5, 4 and 1

Race 5: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 2

Race 6: 3, 2 and 4

Race 7: 1 (Best Bet) with 6 and 8

Race 8: 4 (Best Bet) with 8 and 1

Race 9: 8 (Best Bet) with 4 and 2



“Flagging” The Winner At Aqueduct (11/25/17)

Nov 25th, 2017 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — had another great day yesterday with 4 winners on top (including some nice exacta boxes in best bet races and a cold triple in one of my Churchill races), so let’s see if I can keep it up today!

In race 8, White Flag (#3) can sit a few lengths off a brutal pace and get the jump on the deep closers in the stretch — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 11.

In race 9, The Grade 3 Discovery, Senior Investment (#4) has faced some good ones and now gets a better pace scenario to set up late run if good enough — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 3 and 6

Race 2: 6, 9 and 1

Race 3: 5, 9 and 6

Race 4: 2, 3 and 5

Race 5: 7, 5 and 2

Race 6: 3, 4 and 7

Race 7: 7, 6 and 8

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) with 5 and 11

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet) with 5 and 1

Race 10: 8 (Best Bet) with 10 and 12



“Actress” Plays Her Part At Aqueduct (11/24/17)

Nov 24th, 2017 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card — hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and I played my part listing 4 winners (including 2 best bets) and my bonus pick at Churchill ran second at 9-1 (listed the $94 exacta box), so I will try and carve out some more winners today!

In race 9, Actress (#5) has the best numbers here in losing efforts and Servis puts the blinkers on here which means a winning run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 8.

In race 8, Funtastic (#8) will be the favorite, but has the best figures and should win this at 2-1 — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 3 and 4

Race 2: 4, 3 and 2

Race 3: 1, 4 and 6

Race 4: 7 (Best Best) with 1A and 4

Race 5: 7. 9 and 3

Race 6: 2, 6 and 7

Race 7: 3, 8 and 2

Race 8: 8 (Best Bet) with 2 and 5

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 8

Race 10: 10, 8 and 7

At Churchill, there are several stakes races that I really like:

Race 9: 4 with 8 and 9

Race 10: 6 with 5 and 3

Race 11: 4 with 1 and 8



Ready For “Combat” On Thanksgiving At Aqueduct (11/23/17)

Nov 23rd, 2017 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Good and good for the Thanksgiving Day card at Aqueduct with races 4 and 6 off the turf.  Pretty good card before the surface changes which left races 4 and 6 with no good options — but some of the other races may have value, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 5, Combat Controller (#2) will appreciate any moisture in the track and should sit a good trip on or just off a moderate pace and hold on late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1.

In race 8, The Grade 3 Fall Highweight Handicap, Stallwalkin Dude (#3) is back at 6 furlongs and is the best horse here if gets a decent trip — will pick him and hope to get 2-1.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 1 and 2

Race 2: 3 and 1x

Race 3: 2, 4 and 6

Race 4: 6, 11 and 4

Race 5: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 1

Race 6: 8 and 12

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

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

Race 9: 2, 5 and 1

At Churchill, I really like Kasaqui (#11) in the Grade 3 River City Handicap (Race 11).  Key him in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 5.
