A “Risk” Worth “Taking” At Aqueduct (4/3/21)

Apr 3rd, 2021 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and firm/good for the Wood Memorial Day card — first time I have handicapped here this year, but time to get back to my NY based tracks while doing Keeneland and Churchill when appropriate.  Gulfstream meet was mediocre on win bets, but listed a lot of winners and exacta boxes, especially in best bet races, so let’s see how I do here today!

In race 10, The Grade 2 Wood Memorial, Risk Taking (#4) has excelled stretching out and with blinkers — Chad has him ready for the Derby trail.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 6.

In race 8, Haikal (#1) has been freshened by top trainer and returns to favorite local surface — pace suggests a closer can win this at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 4 and 5

Race 2: 3, 5 and 2

Race 3: 6, 5 and 2

Race 4: 1, 4 and 3

Race 5: 7, 2 and 3

Race 6: 1 (Best Bet) with 3 and 4

Race 7: 6, 4 and 5

Race 8: 1 (Best Bet) with 4 and 7

Race 9: 6, 8 and 3

Race 10: 4 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6
