Horse Racing Picks for Aqueduct for Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018
Aqueduct – Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018
Aqueduct has three Graded stakes races today. We will be focusing on them. Most, if not all my handicapping, will be on Gulfstream Park for the next few months.
Race 4 – THE DEMOISELLE- Grade 2
ENLIVEN– Jersey Joe Bravo rides for McLaughlin. Joe Bravo rides his horses to an honest race. Came in second last out in a grade 2. Use in exotics.
FILLY JOEL- Jose Lezcano rides for Rudy Rodriquez who has been red hot of late. Solid 74 Beyer last out. Legit!
MOLTO BELLA- Castellano rides this horse who has been second past two races. Must use in all wagers.
Race 8 – THE REMSEN – Grade 2
NETWORK EFFECT- Castellano/ Brown combo. The third race of form cycle with a whopping 98 Beyer last out.
Combined 15 lengths in both career victories.
MAXIMUS MISCHIEF- Pennington ships in to ride this horse. The third race of the form cycle with a very impressive 98 Beyer last out. Nothing but bullet works leading up; 1 of 29, 1 of 16.
TAX- Franco rides for Danny Gargan. This is my longshot horse. Bullet work, 1 of 134 last out. Franco is red hot and is bread out of Arch. Exotics at a big price.
Race 9 – THE CIGAR MILE- Grade 1
SUNNY RIDGE- Irad Ortiz/ Jason Servis. Solid work of 10/137 last week. 4 of 5 at the distance and should have no trouble coming late. Exotics for sure.
PATTERNRECOGNITION- Jose Ortiz/Chad Brown. Beat the horse prior each time they have raced.
He will look to go wire to wire as he has the last few races. Hard to ignore.
MENDELSSOHN- Moore/Obrien combo. This will be the horse that can put a wrench in this race. He is consistent at the distance beefing first and third.
Could win it. Exotics for sure.
TIMELINE- Johnny V/ Brown combo. If a speed duel occurs, this one could clean up all the pieces at a good betting price. Don’t be shy to use.
Good luck and thanks for horseracing with Dietz!
