Aqueduct Results, 4/19/08

Professor Paulie picked five winners out of ten races today, but tried to get a little too cute in the trifecta and multiple race pools. A parade of favorites can sometimes be as hard on a bankroll as a parade of longshots. Here are the results from the Big A today.

In other news, Todd Pletcher had a winner in the last big Derby Prep today; the Lexington Stakes at Keeneland. Behindatthebar's big closing run puts him into contention for the inflated trifecta I'm looking for in this year's Derby: after War Pass, Big Brown, and the other speedballs melt down, Pyro and some long-priced closers should be able to swoop around for a nice payday.
