Matt Carothers’ Aqueduct Best Bets for Friday, Dec. 3 (Races: 9 & 10)

“This horse wants more ground, he gets more ground.”

Matt’s Best Bet is ready to go after a quick turnaround racing just seven days ago. Matt believes his selection will like the stretch out in distance and has faced tougher competition.

Jockey Jose Lezcano will be in the irons for Matt’s Best Bet in the 10th race from Aqueduct. Matt says for the meeting, “he’s riding better than anybody but Irad Ortiz.”
