Tenacious Tenango

Today's Belmont feature is the overnight Diablo Stakes for solder sprinters dashing 6 furlongs. It appears a two horse affair between Saturday's Charm (5-2) and Tenango (3-1). We prefer the latter.

trainer David Jacobson is prolific in so many categories that it's difficult to find one at which he is profitable, as the crowd usually in lock-step. One of those, however, is second-off-the-layup, a profit going with his 23% strike rate. Further, he's turning back to his best distance (8) 3-3-2--1-for-16 at all others--and Junior Alvarado takes a return call.

Taking Tenango to win at 2-1 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with dropdown Saturday's Charm, switching to Johnny V.
