Horse Racing picks at Aqueduct race track on Thursday, December 9: Raven Rocks will roll

Horse Racing on dirt at Santa Anita

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Thursday, including at Aqueduct race track. We went 3-for-3 on Wednesday and are up 190.65 units dating back to Aug. 5. Let’s maintain the momentum!

Here are four runners whom we expected to have a leg up on the rest of the competition. It’s time to dive in and discuss these potentially profitable plays.

12:50 pm Aqueduct (Race 1) – Wicked Lady 2/1

A daughter of Unified, she cost $110,000 as a yearling and caught the eye when third on her Belmont debut in October. She kept on strongly in the stretch despite being caught five-wide and she should improve exponentially for that experience. Stretching out to the mile is almost guaranteed to suit and with plenty of improvement expected, she can make it second time lucky.

3:08 pm Aqueduct (Race 6) – Oxana 6/5

A dual winner at Parx, including an allowance contest, she has run well in two subsequent stakes starts. Far from disgraced when fourth in the Grade 2 Prioress at Saratoga, she posted a career best figure when second in the New Start at Penn National in October. This is a much easier contest and the figures she’s produced thus far make her easily the one to beat. Drawn well in stall two, she’s impossible to oppose.

3:36 pm Aqueduct (Race 7) – Raven Rocks 5/2

An expensive $220,000 purchase, he’s yet to add to his tally since graduating at the second attempt at Belmont in 2020. He’s raced on three occasions in 2021 and has acquitted himself well, not beaten far in a pair of allowance races at Aqueduct. This is a big drop in grade for him, having contested $72,000 level earlier in the campaign, and he can surely take advantage of this good opportunity.

4:04 pm Aqueduct (Race 8) – Ok Honey 5/1

An experienced five-year-old, she arrives in career-best form, winning two of her last three starts. Scoring at Belmont three starts ago, she returned to winning ways with an impressive victory at Finger Lakes last time, pulling a long way clear with the second. A pacey sort, stall two is the ideal draw, and if she can get to the lead ahead of My Girl Annie on the inside, she’ll be very tough to pass.
