Best PLAY of the DAY:
#7 Nepotism had a solid debut at Big Sandy on December 7th finishing a solid late-run second with the same kind. Today the son of Union Rags stretches out to a suitably longer distance. With normal second-start improvement, he should handle the group ibn today’s matchup.
Best VALUE Play of the DAY:
#4 Limonite has been claimed in the last two races and won both of them while rising in class at two different tracks with two different jockeys. Once again, this son of Lemon Drop Kid steps up in class with another rider switch while stretching out in his Aqueduct debut.
