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

Race 11: 8, 1 and 7



“Rowing” Upstream At Aqueduct (12/6/20)

Dec 6th, 2020 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Clear and fast for the Sunday card — only 1 winner on top yesterday, but listed 3 exacta boxes and 1 cold tri, but overall not a great day.  Almost time to feature Gulfstream over winter!

In race 7, Saguaro Row (#2) working well for return and top jock takes call in a race that favors a stalk and pounce trip — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 5.

In race 3, Playwright (#7) likes the local surface and gets last winning rider back today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play the exacta box with #’s 2 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 7 and 3

Race 2: 6, 3 and 8

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) with 2 and 5

Race 4: 8, 4 and 3

Race 5: 1, 2 and 5

Race 6: 12, 11 and 1

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

Race 8: 8, 7 and 6

Race 9: 2, 9 and 4

 



“Wasp” Stings At Aqueduct (12/5/20)

Dec 5th, 2020 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Sloppy and off the turf for the great Cigar Mile card — still a lot of great races despite the weather so let’s see how I do today!

In race 8, Wasp (#2) has done little wrong in 2 starts and should continue to move forward here as the favorite — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 9.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Cigar Mile, King Guillermo (#6) comes back off bullet works and should like the one-turn mile and a wet track and will be a decent price — key in all late multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 6 and 7

Race 2: 4, 6 and 3

Race 3: 4, 14 and 10

Race 4: 2, 1 and 5

Race 5: 5, 3 and 6

Race 6: 5, 1 and 3

Race 7: 13, 14 and 6

Race 8: 2 (Best Bet) with 12 and 9

Race 9: 3 (Best Bet) with 1 and 6

Race 10: 6 (Best Bet) with 1 and 8



Feeling “Invincible” At Aqueduct (11/29/20)

Nov 29th, 2020 | By | Category: Aqueduct, Today's Picks

Fast and good/yielding for the Sunday card — 2 winners on top yesterday with a slight flat bet profit and a nice $179.50 exacta box in race 4, but need to be more consistent from start to finish.  Another good card today, so let’s see how I do!

In race 9, Invincible Gal (#4) had no shot from post 14 in BC, but gets a nice post here and positional speed should ensure a good trip here — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 3.

In race 6, Stunning Princess (#6) goes for profitable connections and gets back to reality here after grade 1 failure — 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: 3, 2 and 4

Race 2: 6, 4 and 11

Race 3: 9, 4 and 8

Race 4: 2, 4 and 7

Race 5: 3, 2 and 9

Race 6: 6 (Best Bet) with 9 and 2

Race 7: 10 with 5 and 9

Race 8: 3 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet) with 2 and 3
