Bet Now

Yet another six-horse feature on Long Island, this one for NX1 3-year-olds going a mile and it sure appears like the well regarded Charge Now (1-1) will be a very tough out.

A very poorly kept secret while breaking maiden at Gulfstream Park on the Florida Derby undercard, the Bill Mott trainee attended a very sharp pace and drew out cleverly going two turns in a dirt debut following a turf run in his first race.

The Winstar homebred comes in here fresh and appears a nice second-season 3YO in the making. Joel Rosario takes a return call and his 59 3/5 breezing blowout for this was fastest of 53 on the day.

Take Charge Now to win, no price restrictions, and key-box him in multiples with Roan Approval (6-1), Long Water (3-1) and Lieutenant Seany O (5-1) in the multiples.
