This Derby Looks Just Right


The Saturday feature of the day takes place just outside Cleveland at Thistledown, the G3 Ohio Derby at 9 furlongs. It's the perfect place for Girvin (2-1) to find his form.

His Ky. Derby can be dismissed. also remembering he had some issues in the run-up to the race that altered his training schedule. Freshened since, he returns at his optimal distance and is back on schedule with 'Money Mike' shipping in for the re-ride. Race shape and draw suits perfectly.

Taking Girvin to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with Irap (3-1), if back to his 'A' game, and Untrapped (5-1), back at his best trip with Santana, and adding Talk Less (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Foxy Lady


Yet another Belmont feature on the grass, this one for fillies and mares sprinting 6 furlongs and for out money, ship-in Grey Fox (5-2) is simply a little too quick for this group.

She comes from a live 5F MTH turf sprint, battled throughout, and still had some punch late. She went forward in her 4YO debut, what you'd like to see, and she raced well here at the trip last year.

Taking Grey Fox to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing exactas with turn-backs Runaway Posse (10-1) and Bibbo (6-1).

Behold the Most Beautiful


And I thought yesterday's featured turf race at Belmont was open... Although I left only five to consider today, as opposed to seven yesterday, this problem is tougher because all the plusses have minuses, too. We're throwing deep.

The only thing I'm sure of is 12-1 on Most Beautiful is too much price. She now has the needed conditioning for this and makes a mini-stretch to what might be her optimal distance, given her effort under today's dynamics previously. We like the fact she's drawn outside as the pace should be contested--on paper, anyway.

Taking Most Beautiful to win at 6-1 or greater and will key-box exactas with Peru (5-1) and Boos (9-2).
