Race 7:

1-#4 Bustin Shout**

2-#6 Zaevion

Race 8:

1-#1 Reggae Music Man

2-#2 Teco Bean

** Best Bet: Consistency is what best describes Bustin Shout’s last three starts, no matter what the distance or surface or class. Today’s pace scenario should set up perfectly for his rating style.

 * Best Value:  Vicar’s Legend has only registered four wins in 51 career starts but three of the victories came at Aqueduct; 1-for-24 at any other venue. In his last he finished 6th but made up seven lengths following a sluggish start. A likely fast pace will put him right there.

Record to Date:    30-for-100    Dollars Returned per $2 wager: $99.00 [as of JAN 17]
