Today is one of those holidays that can sometimes be forgotten until it sneaks up on us on the calendar. We shouldn’t forget it though. We should always honor those who have served our country and the sacrifices they made so that idiots like us can gamble on horses and football freely. So take a minute and thank a veteran today.
As it is a holiday, we have a special holiday racing card at Aqueduct today. Normally there is no Monday racing at the Big A, but not today. I’ve looked at the card and I like the late Pick Four beginning in the 7th race. Let’s hit it.
Race Seven: This race is wide open. I like (2) Honey Won’t coming off a win at Saratoga and posting excellent speed figures. I’ll round out with (5)(6)(7)(8) as well.
Race Eight: Chad Brown and Irad Ortiz combine on the (7) Country Grammer. Good speed shown last time. Also use (2),(3),(5).
Race Nine: The (3) Classic Lady is cutting distance after several second place showings. I think that’s the difference. Also add (1) and (7).
Race Ten: The (8) Plink Freud should close the day as a favorite-winner with Jose Ortiz aboard. If not I also like (7), (9), and (14).
BlackJack’s Aqueduct Late Pick Four: 2,5,6,7,8/2,3,5,7/1,3,7/7,8,9,14
