Leave the Basil, Take the ‘Scarole


Today's Aqueduct feature is a state-bred secondary allowances optional claimer for older males going a flat mile and it will be very difficult keeping early line favorite Go Get the Basil (9-5) out of the winners' circle.

Rick Violette, profitable lifetime with these kind, gets the his runner on the Big A main track where he's never been worse than second, with a win, in three lifetime appearances. He owns the tactical speed to keep contact in a relatively paceless group and reunites with Solis, who gets along very well with the newly turned 4YO.

Taking Go Get the Basil to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing him first and second in multiples with recent Nevin claim [32%] Indy Tune (4-1), possible pacesetter Joe Mooch (10-1) and Call for the Clock (2-1), nicely drawn and second off the layup.

Take the “Best Horse”


Not much to choose between in the featured Cat Cay Stakes at the Big A marking the return of both Princess of Sylmar (1-1) and Wedding Toast (6-5).

Both fillies are training as if this was a good spot to get started; I'm sure both barns weren't happy to see the other rival at this stage of their 4YO seasons.

Wedding Toast has the favorable dynamics; Princess of Sylmar the company lines. Class will tell.

Taking Princess of Sylmar to win, no price restrictions, and a cold exacta with her main rival.

Crying Uncle


Two big Derby preps today and we'll stay in the East for the Wood Memorial in Aqueduct where the first question on everyone's mind: Is Social Inclusion for real? I'm not smart enough to know that before Saturday at about 6:20 p.m. but I do know my money will be elsewhere. Call it the Missouri Syndrome.

Beating four horses on a speed-favoring surface with a short stretch run at the 1-1/16 mile distance, including a horse, Honor Code, who came out of the race off the Triple Crown trail, does not put me on any bandwagon--certainly not at 2-1 on the early line. I'll stay with proven commodities.

I've been waiting for Uncle Sigh (5-1) to draw a position outside his nemesis, undefeated Samraat (7-2). He has, and I'm willing to give him a chance to presumably run down his rival instead of the other way around.

Taking Uncle Sigh to win at 3-1 or greater, key-boxing him in exactas with his two rivals above and with Harpoon (8-1), adding Noble Moon (12-1), bar shoe and all, and Wicked Strong (15-1) to the super-exotic mix.
