Keeneland Picks 7-10-3-6
#7 Jades Gelly-missed by just a neck against a tougher field two back at Kentucky Downs then did not fire in a race washed off the turf here last out. She gets back on the turf today and runs for 33% winning trainer Ward.
#10 Lexintonia- came off a year and six month layoff last out and missed by only 2 lengths. She needed that one, runs for sharp turf trainer, gets Saez and will improve.
#3 Ghosting Kim-445k filly rallied to break her maiden last out. She is working well here including a bullet work best of 32 others and she is cut out to be a runner.
#6 Senora Roma-drew off to break her maiden last out by 11 lengths. She is improving and could be in the payoff at a price.
Note: we always play exacta boxes!

Aqueduct 6th race post time 4:01
We have some big prices and are looking for a BIG exacta hit!
#1 Lady by Choice (6-1)-ran at this same level three starts back while coming off a 4 month layoff, catching a sloppy track, and drew off to win by 3 lengths. She has since taken on tougher in two straight including a 70k stake last out in which she finished 3rd. She drops back down to 20k and 6-1 is a good price.
#6 Miss Liana (6-1)-went wire to wire in her last two in a row. She looks like the speed again today, has won 4 of 7 here and will be tough to catch at a price.
#8 Flat Awesome Jenny (4-1)-finished 3rd last out while running over her head in a stake. She drops down to 20k and that will help her chances.
#9 New Year’s Wish (3-1)-is coming off a year and two month layoff or Linda Rice. She was taking on tougher then and will be tough if Rice has her 100%.

Aqueduct 8th race
#2 Danny California (8-1)-got hot towards the end of the year last year winning three in a row while beating tougher than he is facing today. He has been taking on much tougher since his win streak and this drop in class will make him tough-not to mention I.Oritz taking over in the saddle.
#3 Daddy Knows (7-2)-does his best running over this track winning 3 of his 6 starts here. He has the speed to be in it from the start and will be the one to catch.
#4 Control Group (5-2)-has rallied to win two of his last three. He has been in the money in 13 of 18 here and should run into the payoffs again today.
#5 Wild Banker (6-1)-is another who has rallied to win two of his last three. We have some good prices in this race and hopefully we are in line for a nice hit.
