Horse Racing picks at Aqueduct race track on Thursday, November 18: Nicky The Vest will be the best
There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Thursday, including at Aqueduct race track. We have been crushing our horse picks for several months now (up 184.45 units dating back to Aug. 5) and plan on maintaining the momentum!
Here are 3 runners whom we expected to have a leg up on the rest of the competition. Let’s dive in discuss these potentially profitable plays.
1:19 pm Aqueduct (Race 3) – Nicky The Vest 9/5
Unbeaten in two starts the son of Runhappy followed up an impressive all the way three-and-a-quarter length victory in a maiden special weight here on debut last December with a victory by a wide margin in a state bred stakes contest over a mile here in February. Has delivered some solid works of late including a 50.80 four furlong breeze on the dirt training track at Belmont Park and he is taken to maintain his unbeaten record under Kendrick Carmouche.
2:15 pm Aqueduct (Race 5) – Russiarussiarussia 5/2
Raced from off the pace prior to delivering a solid length second when sent off favourite for a maiden special weight over a mile-and-one-sixteenth at Belmont Park on debut last month. Likely to have improved for that experience and with Irad Ortiz in the saddle she is taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking for trainer Chad Brown who has made a good start to this meeting with two winners from his eight previous starters.
4:13 pm Aqueduct (Race 9) – Bointheback 9/2
The Majestic City colt demonstrated good form in his first three starts with the most recent of those coming when finishing runner-up, beaten seven-and-a-half-lengths in a maiden special weight over six-and-one-half-furlongs at Saratoga at the end of August. Disappointed when finishing last of eight finishers in a six furlong event at Belmont Park subsequently but he looks capable of putting that below par effort behind him with Javier Castellano taking the ride on his first start at this venue.
