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.
