No Metal Detector Needed


Today's feature race from Belmont Park is the Grade 1 Man o’ War at 1 3/8th miles on the Widener Turf

We left five horses open possibilities, including the three likely favorites: Treasure Beach (9-5) is multiple Group 1 winner for O’Brien, including 2011 Secretariat, is co-fastest on energy figures and stalking style suits race shape. Point Of Entry (5-2), co-fastest, benefits from good spacing, owns sharp blowout around dogs; Shug is profitable 21% efficient in graded stakes and still developing 4-year-old hails from key G2 Elkhorn (3/5).

Hudson Steele (5-1) keeps improving for Pletcher, he held very well pacesetting in G1 Manhattan. switches to Bravo and may get preferable target in this matchup.

But for the record, we're taking Treasure Beach, no price restrictions, key boxing first and second with his main rivals here, and adding price shot Center Divider (10-1), training on schedule for Chad Brown, owns tactical speed and inside position and Newsdad (4-1), also out of Keeneland’s key Elkhorn, to the exotics mix.

Running Totals: (1115) 342-218-167 Total Dollar Return: $2,353.20 [win selections only]
