Summer Place To Be Very August

No great deal of imagination is required to know which member of today's Belmont feature, a preliminary allowances-optional claimer for state-breds, has the most ability or the most upside. That would be Summer Place To Be (4-5) who was most impressive winning his 7-furlong debut at Saratoga by open lengths.

If that weren't enough he came back with a bullet blowout at his Fair Hill base for Tony Dutrow, a profitable 35% when returning with horses coming off a maiden score. We're not going to get cute here.

Taking Summer Place To Be to win, no price restrictions, key-boxing in exactas with Junior Officer (4-1), dropping significantly in claiming price while returning to his favorite surface, and Street Swagg (8-1), whose only lifetime win came over Big Sandy and stretches out for Joe Lostritto, a profitable 19% when stretching to a route off consecutive sprints.

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1390

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 427-263-212

Amount Wagered: $2,780 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $2,908.00

Profit to Date: $128.00
