Aqueduct Selections



FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22

SPOT PLAYS

AQUEDUCT

Race 5

#5 Point Hope

Takes a confident rise in class and veteran is no stranger to the winner’s circle. Has won 2 of 3 outings since getting claimed by the current connections, and has won both of the last two races at this one mile distance around one turn.  The horse to beat, even more so in this race that is overloaded with early pace in a perfect scenario to set-up this horse’s late run.

 

Race 9

#4 Lutheran Rags

Plus play an exacta box w/#9 Violent Delights

#4 Lutheran Rags stretches out of the claim by Toscano after not being able to overcome a troubled trip last time out. Finished a solid second two races ago with a speed figure that would be very difficult to beat versus this field if he is able to repeat it, even with this rise in class up against maiden special weights.

Play in exacta box w/ #9 Violent Delights, who shouldn’t be overlooked in this spot after a distant third-place finish last time out in an effort that looks even better now that the race has turned out to be a key race, with both the first- and second-place finishers already coming back to win their next starts. Blinkers on will keep him close to the pace today, and this horse should be finishing well when some of these rivals will be struggling at the end of the mile.
