Beer: Aqueduct pick five for Saturday, Jan. 7


Race 1: #6 Chico Grande is the horse to beat as he takes a class drop, and his speed plays in the opener. I don't trust him enough to single him in the pick five and will also use #3 Watch the Tie on a main ticket. Watch the Tie's best race matches up well with that of the favorite, and he was unlucky in his last race when surviving a multiple-horse duel, only to be closed down late.
