Tapping Out on Goldberg Filly In Belmont Turf Feature


Today Belmont offers the first of three consecutive turf features this week and today's is a beaut--if like inscrutable puzzles that is.

Literally, I could make a case for all eight turf runners (there's one MTO), from 5-2 Path to 12-1 grass debuting, Diannestillworks.

However, we've settled on Tap It Out (7-2), from the Alan Goldberg barn that's 2-for-2 at the young meet. Away since February, she's won 1 of 3 grass starts and exits the fastest of those, in which she had a tough trip through the lane.

She can race close to the pace whatever the fractions and can kick strongly late as well. The switch to Johnny V. augurs well and her tricky outside draw at this distance will leave Johnny with plenty of option. The price should be fair.

Taking Tap It Out to win at early line odds or greater, key boxing exactas with multiple turf winning Josdesanimeaux (3-1) and U.S. debut making Easy Feeling (5-1), adding Shug returnee Path to the super-exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2008: 1738

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 523-332

Amount Wagered: $3,476 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,581.10

Profit to Date: $105.10

Classy Returnee for New Trainer Motion in Parx Feature


In today's featured 8th race at Parx, Lunarwave (5-1), who has been away since 2013, acted like a special 2-year-old when last seen at Saratoga in the summer of 2013. In fact, he finished third in the G1 Hopeful; but today he makes his first start for trainer Graham Motion, an ace with horses coming back from long layups.

It's as much on play on Motion as it is on the now 4-year-old. Taking Lunarwave to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with Queenqueg (9-2), back to reality here going turf to dirt and returning to the surface over which he broke his maiden.

Number of Selections since 2008: 1737

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 522-332

Amount Wagered: $3,474 [to win only]
