Aqueduct: Poppy Day wins on Veterans Day

Email

  Veterans Day is also known as "Poppy Day," and hunch players were amply rewarded when Poppy Day (5th, $14.20) rode the crest of an outside closer-favoring racetrack to outfinish 3-5 favorite D'Oratory.

  Two races in, you'd have to think any pick-6 tickets still alive are on thin ice the rest of the way.
