Win It for Dear Old Dad


The top two choices in today’s featured eighth from Belmont Park—it’s really the seventh but we’ll pass since that sprint is on turf and we lost a selection yesterday—and it’s a two-horse race on paper.

It’s really close between Poppa’s Pick (5-2) and Trouble In Dodge (3-1). The former has won five races lifetime as opposed to the latter’s one, albeit over classier rivals. But we’re taking the former for one reason.

Poppa’s Pick was claimed for $7,500 on the mega-drop two back and then improved in its first start for Steve Asmussen. But note the owner is Toby Sheets, Asmussen’s number one assistant.

Sheets has done this before--making astute claims, so we’ll ride the wave, especially with Ramon Dominguez putting his mount in excellent position from the get-go.

Taking Poppa’s Pick to win at 2-1 or greater and an excellent box with Trouble In Dodge.

Running Totals: (1082) 333-211-161 Total Dollar Return: $2,290.90 [win selections only]
