It's a great card & hopefully we'll see history made again today.

Race 1

Javier has the chalk on #1; #3 has won 2 in a row & picks up Luis; #6 is very dangerous & picks up Rosario after Dylan Davis has rode him in the last 9 races;  #7 was a beaten favorite & Linda Rice owns/trains; she's been knocking on the door but has only won 3 of 18.

My play is an early DD 1367 with 27.

In the 2nd race, #2 didn't like to slop in his last & #7 is a CYA play because Flavien Prat picks up this mount & he has an uncanny way of hopping on a colt he's never been on & immediately makes him better.

Should be a great day. BOL to all...an_cheers

BOL to you as well Rob...

Bonita Springs broke through the gate prior to the start & it may have cost her.

Javier on #1 was just too good making the rail trip a winning one.

Keep an eye on the 1 post; it's winning at 34%.

Same to you vet. Weather looks good as well.

Something I just noticed about the winner La Moneta, Current trainer Tom Morley has been trading training dutoe with trainer Brian Walsh. They each had had her for 3 races. Fickle owner?

This filly is now 3 for 3 @ Big Sandy.

6-1-2 for a small $31 trifecta.

Figured Baffert shipped this one over from Cali because he was dead fit sitting on a big effort.

R4 I'll try to beat the big chalk with a straight tri 5-3-7

R5 I like #9 War Story.

Ex/DD wheel 9/all

Tri key 9/3458

Trainer Navarro has been known to juice his horses which is a shame because he  gets some good stock. He's won over 2 mil with War Story & he's the defending champion having won the Brooklyn last year. Getting Javier back up adds some sugar here.

Ahhhhh Flavien Pratt on Hoppertunity catches War Story,

Baffert is 2 for 2 & is loaded for bear in the Belmont.

R6 #5 Disco Partner has won 7 of 11 @ Belmont. He was the beaten favorite in his last 

#1 Stormy Liberal beat the one above.

#3 Pocket Change...look at Trainer Jason Service; he's won 7 of 14 at the meet.

#7 Blind Ambition has won 5 of 12 & 2 for 2 @ Belmont

So that's my ex/tri box

First tote flash has a quick 32k in the win pool for Madison's Luna ; she got down from 8-1 to 5/2. WTF?

That didn't go well

R9 is interesting...

#1 Mind Your Biscuits has over 3 mil & won her last in Dubai; 18 of 23 ITM.

#2 Bolt d'Oro has raced twice against Justify; one nice & one crappy. 

#3 Limousine Liberal has Javier get on as Jose Ortiz rides the #5. Like in exotics

#4 McCracken won his last in the slop; this may be tough

#5 Good Samaritan has been knocking on the door; Ortiz left the 3 for Billy Mott.

#6 One Liner..Pletcher; what else can I say

#7 Discreet Lover owner/trainer combo; last 2 were dull

#8 Ransom the Moon has regular jock Prat up; Prat riding well today; ships in from Cali. Got my attention

#9 Warrior's Club all I can say is ther's a big jock upgrade from Contrearis (sp) to Saez

#10 Bee Jersay has got tons of speed; Santana/Asmussen; one to catch

#11 Awesome Slew has JV/Casse/Live Oak connection;

Ex/tri box 1-8-10-11

Got the small ex 10-1

10 cent super paid $534 with the 7 @ 79-1 running 4th & Castellano got 3rd. Trainer/owner combo hits after his last 2 were crap.

For a dime....an_clap
