Nick Tammaro’s Aqueduct Selections & Analysis – Saturday, January 28, 2023

AQUEDUCT 1/28/23 

RACE 1: 6-5-7-2 

#6 MR. SWAGGER is a firster by Juan Avila who has a solid dam side pedigree and a strong worktab.  This is a weaker than par MSW event and that makes him a major player at a square price.

RACE 2: 2-3-4-7

#2 COUSIN ANDREW is strictly the one to beat coming off a series of starter allowance tries for Linda Rice.  This barn continues to hit at a high percentage and this gelding fits well in for a tag.  Look for him to stalk and pounce this afternoon.

RACE 3: 2-4-1-8

#2 GUT FEELING goes 2nd off a layoff and exits a good runner-up effort.  He has worked a bullet since then and should be within range from the outset pace-wise.  His best speed figures make him a very likely winner this afternoon.

RACE 4: 8-1-6-9

#8 BUSTIN HOT is dropping in for a tag and getting Lasix for the first time this afternoon.  She has plenty of speed and should be a factor from the opening bell.  If able to get the lead, she is a major candidate to go the distance.

RACE 5: 5-2-7-8

#5 DIVINE WINE goes 2nd off a claim for Gustavo Rodriguez and moves up in class.  She should get a good trip from just off the pace and her best races make her a major player at a fair price.

RACE 6: 6-1-5-3

#6 MY SWEET WIFE ran a good race when second on the sloppy surface last time out for trainer Michelle Nevin and now bids to make it 3 wins in 4 starts.  If she can sit just off the pace and pounce late she can win.

RACE 7: 8-3-6-2 

#8 LITTLE VIC is the one to beat for trainer Juan Avila off a narrow miss in the Gravesend last time out.  He is quick enough to get command in here and that would make him very dangerous as the second choice.

RACE 8: 4-8-3-7

#4 ROYAL CURRENCY is the one to beat for trainer Charlie Baker after getting up for second last time out.  She has been in the best form of any runner in this field since coming back from a brief layoff and a cleaner break from the gate will help her stay closer early.

RACE 9: 5-3-10-9

#5 FACTUALLY CORRECT is the one to beat second off a claim getting Lasix for the first time.  He has shown increased speed with each passing start and he should be a major threat from the outset today.
