Hunch Bets for January 9

Amazing Victory 7th at Gulfstream
Suprise Party 2nd at Beulah
Charming At Last 7th at Hawthorne
Eulogize 1st at Gulfstream
Astute 6th at Aqueduct
What's Up Dog 8th at Hawthorne
Worth A Shot - 3rd at Aqueduct

Let's go through this one more time - please do not bet on these horses unless you have good reason to other than their being listed above. And if you do, please don't come back here to yell at me if they lose!! Just having a little fun.

You want a real selection? Let's try the 4th at Gulfstream. Pletcher broke into the Gulf win column with a pair on Monday. Lucky Copy (3-1) has been off for a couple of months since a third place finish in a Belmont stakes. Contested over a yielding turf course, she set insanely fast fractions of 23 and 45.4 in the mile contest before understandably tiring; yet she stayed on stubbornly for a close third. 4th place finisher Wonderwho'sbest came back to win an Aqueduct allowance with an 82 Beyer that likely wins this race. With an inside post and not much speed outside, this daughter of Unbridled's Song should be able to set a far more reasonable pace cutting back slightly in distance with Johnny V., and looks like a routine selection for the Toddster.

Help!

Why does youbet.net (not youbet.com!) offer Aqueduct VIDEO?

They allow Aqueduct to be part of the contest each day they run, but you can't watch the video.

Does anybody have an answer to this?

Your two paragraphs contradict each other - I'm assuming you meant 'Why doesn't youbet.net offer Aqueduct video'.

I've watched AQU on .net, but haven't tried recently, so maybe it's caught up in TVG losing it's exclusivity. I think it was through them they were allowed to broadcast.

In general, they only give you 6-10 tracks at a time to do fake bets on, but if you open up a video window, it lets you toggle between those tracks plus more. Maybe Aqueduct is in that list?
