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.
