NYRA’s Aqueduct Racetrack is now full swing, and its Winter Meet is rolling. Though the turf is covered until April, dirt racing is 100% available ... so, this is still one of the tracks that garners mass attention.

At we have you covered, including all of the action! It is a good time for some of the best that North American racing has to offer. Stay tuned!

Most Likely Winner: (Race 6: Suspended Campaign #2, 9/5):

Right now, Jose Ortiz is riding in a strong manner, and he seems to be securing some strong mounts. This filly by Honor Code is not only well-bred, but she has a consistent record of success for the Duggan Barn. After a miss last time at Aqueduct in a Starter ALLW Co. contest, she returns to the scene looking to get back on top. I would expect this to happen, and maybe … just maybe … her odds will be above 9/5. Maybe we can get 5/2! That would be excellent! Tote watch … underway!

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #2


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 8: Know It All Audrey #4, 8/1):

This Shackleford filly had trouble right out of the gate last time at Aqueduct, and still made up ground to finish 4th in a MSW70k race last time. In the mud too … The Toscano Barn has a good one on their hands, and they are going with Eric Cancel once again in the irons. Her price of 8/1 is pretty square, and she has the ability to take a step forward in this 1-turn affair. I would not say that there is a ton of speed signed on here, so it will be interesting to see if Cancel makes the call to turn his mount loose early. Should be a good bet, as far as I am concerned.

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS #4 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 7: Dirt, 6½F, AOC62.5k, F&M 4+):

The “feature” on this Thursday card is a tough AOC Co. contest that pits a salty crew against one another. Bettors will certainly be enticed to back the coupled entry of Spun d’Etat #1 and Shesalittle Edgy #1A. Don’t get me wrong, both have some interesting class lines, and I am sure they will be well-backed. The latter has oodles of ALLW/AOC cred, so making a case for this Scott Lake character is fairly simple. I am going to play against them, and instead going to promote the virtues of Ray Handal’s Just Read It #5. This well-bred filly by Constitution was up against it last time out in the Garland of Roses 100k at the “Big A.” Her odds told the story (21/1), and the finish did too … 7th, 11-lengths back. That wasn’t her day, but she still has some advantages at the ready. This is her 3rd start in the cycle, and let’s not forget that she has a pair of wins over this track. Her price will be right around 6/1, and the addition of Jose Lezcano, who is riding at a nice clip, looks to be a great move by this barn. She will appreciate the class drop, and with that tactical ability of hers, she should be able to sit a good trip. Let’s call this ice cold … an Exacta!

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Exacta Cold, 5 w 1/1A


Enjoy some racing from the “Big A!” Best of luck on another run at Aqueduct!
