Turf wagers are turf only

Best Bets

WAGERED: $50.00

Aqueduct: Discovery Hcp G3 $100K

Gone Astray...Seems to have come into his own since late summer and looks like a good fit here.
Birdrun...Another that has run his best over the last two or three. Gets tested today.
Haynesfield...Will be prominent early -- and in this short field, late as well.
Bad Action.

Wager: ...$5 exacta Gone Astray over Birdrun.
...$5 exacta box top two.
...$2 exacta box top three.

Churchill: Cardinal Hcp G3 $100K

Long Approach...Just-miss second in this race last year. Off a long time but expect trainer to have her ready.
Lemon Chiffon...Invades from SoCal where she faced some good ones. However, could only managed a third-place finish when she ventured here earlier this year -- but the extra furlong might help today.
My Baby Baby...She's in the hunt more often than not and she likes this track.

Wager: $5 WP on Acoma.
...$2 exacta box top two.
...$1 exacta box top four.
...$1 tri box top four.

Hollywood: Hollywood Prevue G3 $100K

Macias...Baffert runner has progressed nicely through first three and looks capable here.
American lion...Solid win in second start. The one to beat if that Beyer last time was for real.
Indian Firewater...Uncoupled barnmate of top pick looks to fit with these.
Seattle Ruler.

Wager: $5 WP on Macais.
...$2 exacta box top two.
...$1 exacta box top four.
...$1 tri box top four.
