Counting On A “Friend” At Aqueduct (11/25/18)

Nov 25th, 2018 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Muddy and off the turf for the Sunday card — lots of scratches again today which has diluted a good card.  Another two winners on top yesterday and a nice late pick 3, but this huge speed bias on the main track has made some of the races unwatchable and unplayable, so let’s see if the rain changed the bias at all.

In race 8, Friend of Liberty (#15) gets great stalking post with all the speed signed on here and should run these down if the track is playing fairly — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 9.

In race 6, Oneballnostrikes (#8) cuts back to sprint and should be loaded at the top of the stretch if close enough — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 8, 6 and 5

Race 2: 3, 4 and 1

Race 3: 1, 7 and 3

Race 4: 6 with 1 and 3

Race 5: 16 (Best Bet) with 13 and 2

Race 6: 8 (Best Bet) with 6 and 2

Race 7: 7 with 13 and 14

Race 8: 15 (Best bet) with 1 and 9

Race 9: 5, 6 and 7



Being “Ambitious” At Aqueduct (11/24/18)

Nov 24th, 2018 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card with races 4 and 5 off the turf.  Not much to say about yesterday with two winners on top, so I will try and do better today.

In race 7, The Aqueduct Turf Sprint Championship, Blind Ambition (#5) will be a decent price because Disco Partner is the best horse, but maybe the pace will be moderate and that will favor our selection, so we are taking a shot at a mild upset.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 9.

In race 8, Tommy T (#4) fires every time and should sit a perfect trip right off the pace — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 5 and 2

Race 2: 3, 4 and 7

Race 3: 5, 2 and 6

Race 4: 8, 12 and 3

Race 5: 1, 6 and 10

Race 6: 1 with 3 and 5

Race 7: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 9

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

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 1 and 10

Race 10: 3, 7 and 1



It’s About “Time” At Aqueduct (11/23/18)

Nov 23rd, 2018 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and off the turf for the Friday card — hope everyone had a great holiday and can take advantage of a great shopping day!  Very difficult to shop around for a winner when they scratch so many horses with no turf racing, but I will try and beat my 3 winners on top yesterday!

In race 9, The Grade 3 Comely, Split Time (#1) gets cozy inside post and should get a fast pace to set up late run up the fence — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.

In race 8, Surge of Pride (#9) was in tough in last and should get a great stalking trip here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 3, 4 and 5

Race 2: 4, 15 and 14

Race 3: 6, 1 and 7

Race 4: 5, 6 and 12

Race 5: 3, 9 and 1

Race 6: 12 and 1A

Race 7: 10 and 5

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

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

Race 10: 8, 1 and 13

Nov 22nd, 2018 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and off the turf for the Thanksgiving Day card at Aqueduct — wanted to wish my family and friends a very happy holiday season!  Pretty disappointed we are not on the turf, but it’s a tradition to handicap on Thanksgiving, so let’s see how I do.

In race 8, The grade 3 Fall Highweight Handicap, Always Sunshine (#7) was over matched in last and should get a perfect stalking trip here and prevail late — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 5.

In race 2, Mecurian (#6) should benefit from all the speed in here and make a late run here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 5 and 2

Race 2: 6 (Best Bet) with 5 and 3

Race 3: 5, 16 and 11
