A Hot One in Today’s Feature

For the last two days, the big races in New York look a lot like those from Southern California. For the second straight day, the feature, a "non-winners of 3-optional claimer" is five horses deep and again will be run as the second race.

We'll seek value with a recent David Jacobson claim, Spa City Fever (8-1), who should dominate the early pace, has shown an ability at the trip, attracts Junior Alvarado, who's been doing lots of winning for Jacobson of late and exits a key race that's produced two winners from two subsequent starters.

Taking Spa City Fever to win at 5-1 or greater and key boxing him with class dropping Big Screen (7-5) and first-time Rudy Marilyn's Guy (5-2).
