Can’t Imagine Shug Not Taking Down Today’s Man o’ War



With four features to choose from, we’ll concentrate on the headliner, the G1 Man o’ War. It’s a small-field event, as are most races these days at Belmont, but about half the field has an excellent chance; Imagining (9-5), Hardest Core (4-1) and Twilight Eclipse (3-1). Any other entrant would be a shocker.

The favorite looks the best of three. Both races in Florida this winter were good, losing one via a troubled trip. Now he’s back at Belmont, where he’s 5-for-10 in left and 11 furlongs looks like his best trip.

We’ll take Imagining to win, no price restrictions, and key-box exactas with the rivals as above.


Number of Selections since 2008: 1740

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 523-333

Amount Wagered: $3,480 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,585.30

Profit to Date: $105.30 {Friday results not included}

This Chad’s No Hanger


Today's Belmont feature, an optional NW3 going nine furlongs on Inner Turf offers only a field of six but a fair price is likely to available on Rubindy, up in class following a hard fought GP win.

But while cheaper, this is the sharper of Chad Brown's uncoupled entry and she's been working strongly and on schedule since that Feb. 11 score. Brown is 30% profitable with this type of spacing and the switch to Velazquez seals this deal.

Taking Rubindy to win at 5-2 or greater and boxing the exacta with classy returnee Dido, dropping out of G3 company in her season's debut for Graham Motion with Irad Ortiz, who gotten off to a good start at the spring meet.

Chad Brown Takes Over


Sometimes there's an opportunity to take a runner on ability and faith--the belief there may be more talent inside. Such is the case in today's Belmont turf featured 8th race.

When Takeover Target (5-2) won his debut, he was visually impressive and won in turf style, picking up the tempo with each succeeding quarter mile. And the manner in which he defeated 11 rivals was fairly stunning for a baby making his first start.

Chad Brown colt has been training right along in SoFla since March now makes his first start at three on the same lawn, albeit different course, over which he broke his maiden. Irad Ortiz is taking the return call.

Taking Takeover Target to win, no price restrictions, and boxing the exacta with the experienced, fast and class tested Zandar (4-1).


Number of Selections since 2008: 1739

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 523-333

Amount Wagered: $3,478 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,581.10

Profit to Date: $103.10
