Horse Racing Picks

Most Likely Winner: (Race 7: Rooski #2, 3/1):

Some newly-minted 3-yr-old fillies head to the gate, and for my money, I am pretty keen on this daughter of Tourist. Trained by Jeremiah Englehart, she has some ticks to the positive … Getting 1st time Lasix is one, and the fact that she won in a spot like this one last time out. She is in for a tag of $50k, and I would not be surprised in the NYRA claiming market if some connections grab her. Englehart is having a so-so Meet, and I am just waiting for him to break loose. Will it be 3 in-a-row? I think so …

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #2


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 4: Mr. Fidget #3, 6/1):

Looking for some value … let’s be Lookin At Lucky … This offspring of that sire has some value, I think. Ever since trainer Neville Henry took this one on, the NYRA road continues to be circuitous. He tried turf, distance races, dropped down from ALLW Co … all to no avail. Henry seems to be wandering around in the dark looking for the Condition Book. This could be the proper spot, going 1-turn mile on the dirt at Aqueduct. He has only scored once here in 14 starts … that could change at a price, today.

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS #3 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 2: Dirt, Clm25kNw2, 4+):

I picked this race with the express purpose of trying to find a way to beat the prohibitive favorite in Linda Rice’s Bezos #1. You will probably remember this colt from last March when he stoked the Derby chatter after winning a MSW61k at Santa Anita for trainer Bob Baffert. After being sent over to the Brisset Barn, he now drops all the way down into the claiming ranks for Rice. He has not seen live racetrack competition since November, and that is precisely why I think he is vulnerable. Instead of backing this one by Empire Maker, I am much more interested in the form of Mark Hennig’s Full Moon Fever #5. Like Rice’s entry, this gelding by Effinex is just off-the-claim. His new barn does not engage in this business often, but I think there are some past performances that can tell us how he will do. Last year, he ran in a bunch of state bred MSW Co., fairing nicely. Almost always well-backed at the windows, Dylan Davis I think is going to try and stay close, making a nice run at the end. If this runner for Hennig ends up anywhere close to 6/1 … that’s an overlay. A class drop like this one … it should assist.

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Exacta Cold, 5 w 1


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