Paulie's Picks, Aqueduct, 4/5/08

A bad cold and crummy weather have conspired to keep me on the couch for the Wood Memorial tomorrow, but thanks to OTB's Bet-By-Phone Club, I won't be out of the game. You can't keep a good man down, they say.

I'm throwing in my lot with War Pass in spite of the Tampa Bay Derby debacle - he's a proven mudlark, and Aqueduct is generally friendly to speedy, front-end types. The odds will still be stingier than I want, but not nearly as stingy as they would have been if he had romped at Tampa Bay Downs as expected.
