Los Barrachos? Mucho Dinero
For the third straight day this week, the Belmont feature going as the 8th race is on the turf, this one for 3YOs going 7F and it appears that Los Borrachos (8-1) may be set for his best go now.
After showing improved early speed two starts back, he finished willingly in last after stalking a laughably slow pace last out in what appeared to be a promising turf debut.
There is the promise of a lot more early speed in today's matchup and the turnback should suit him well as he meets his own age group after trying his elders. Bill Mott's second-time turfers generally improve and Chris DeCarlo accepts a return call.
Taking Los Borrachos to win, no prove restrictions, and key-boxing exacts with the versatile J to the Croft (4-1) and Watery Moon (8-1), who figures to benefit from his last.
